Chef Shinya’s sushi class is a wonderful experience that my husband and I enjoyed very much. Would recommend this class to anyone interested in learning how to make sushi at home. Chef Shinya is a great teacher and wonderful host.

It was amazing experience to join this cooking class. Chef Shinya is very professional, friendly, as well as informative. The class is easy to learn and replicate at home. The food ingredients are fresh and taste excellent. The fresh wasabi is the best. We will definitely come again.
