The class and the Chef Shinya were wonderful. It was all it was advertised as and more. The history and traditions along with the sushi instructions was excellent. And I really liked the small class size. The food was wonderful. I only wish I had had room to eat more

I had a wonderful time at the ramen making class. Chef Shinya was very knowledgeable and friendly, and he made us feel at home. He taught us all the tricks and techniques to make authentic and delicious ramen. We learned about the different types, and how to flavor it. The ramen we made was amazing. I highly recommend this class to anyone who loves ramen and wants to learn how to make it at home. Thank you, Chef Shinya, for a memorable and fun experience!

Chef Shinya and this class was EXCELLENT! I bought this as a gift for my family (adults and teenagers) and everyone loved it. Chef provided lots of interesting information, is a great storyteller, made everyone feel at home, AND taught us to make delicious sushi…which we then got to eat! So much fun!
