We (3 adults and a 9 year old) had a ball learning how to prepare and cook (and eat) delicious Balinese food in a bustling outdoor tables. Our quick trip to the food market introduced us some insight into the local way of life. Back at the restaurant, the chef instructor quickly developed rapport with the whole group and really made the experience fun and engaging. I would definitely do another class at this establishment.

Great experience! As a vegetarian/pescatarian. I opted for the non vegetarian option as I wanted to experience the market tour. It was quite hot that day and the market is outdoors so prepare yourself for the heat. The great thing is that the non vegetarian option also included a seafood dish. They were able to cater to my dietary needs and gave me a vegetarian and seafood dish. Our chef and guide Komang was amazing! He is very knowledgable and a true master of his craft for cooking. He spoke English well and was very humorous. I recommend giving this class a try as it was a good experience to learn about Balinese cooking!

I love this experience! The arrangement was perfect! First, the staff drove us to the local wet market and showed us some of the most frequently-used ingredients in Balinese cuisine. Then, we headed to the restaurant and started to cook! There were a lot of participants on that day, so most of the time, we took turn to do the actual cooking. I think it’s nice as it helped speed things up. The chef is funny and knowledgeable. At last, we learnt at least 8 dishes including salad and dessert. Awesome!
