My husband and I attended the morning bento box class. We were blown away by the number of dishes that we made in the 3.5 hours. It was also such a fantastic way to experience Japanese culture. The class takes place in this cute 80...More

We're not chefs (we'll occasionally stray from a recipe by adding a little more salt), so heading into this we were concerned we'd hold the rest of the class up - but our hosts were super good teachers with incredible english (seems to be a...More

We came here during our honeymoon and loved it. We did the bentobox morning activity which was fun! The explanation was very helpful and you get to keep the recipe book. The food was so delicious. Especially the teriyaki chicken en sushi were great!

We chose the bento class and were really happy about it. We learned a lot as it was our first time cooking Japanese food even though we've been into it for years now. The very detailed leaflet will allow us to make bento home.
