Mei was kind, patient and really fun to work with. She assisted us all in ensuring we all had a positive and relaxing experience. I would definitely take class from her again!

Chef Mai was very sweet and her instruction of making sushi rolls was easy to follow. We had a good time with her. On the other hand, the venue - beer co. - although nice and airy in late afternoon with music in the background, was likely inappropriate for a sushi making class. It made it hard to hear, and handling food and plasticware outside on a patio table with the wind blowing made it a bit difficult. I would definitely take any of her classes again but will look at the venue a bit more.
