Our group loved the lesson from beginning to end. Our teacher made sure everyone, both adults and children, were involved. The afternoon was informative and enjoyable, and the ramen we made and ate at the end was absolutely delicious!

Getting to sushi master level!

This was a great session in a small format to learn more about the few things I didn't know about making sushi rolls and discovering new recipe. It was a very pleasant afternoon and I recommend it!

Great session

We loved this session! A great host and we learned a lot about Japanese culture as well as sushi itself.

We made a lot of sushi and got a really good goody bag.

Only thing that would make it 5 star would be to have more fish in the sushi we made, as it was mainly veg based.
