Tomy the chef was amazing !! We had a good time with him , I was alone but have made good friends right away with everyone! The food was excellent, and the quality of course impressive!!! I recommend it to everyone!!!
Our cooking class is fun, good explanation and if u had question the cook take time. Good atmosphere and jokes as well. The market tour is good with tasting some fruit and see spices such as Laos. Our multi culti group (Australia, Japan, Philipinnes, Canada, Chech Republic and the Netherlands). Most like dishes for me are papayasalad and sweet corn snack. All of us take part of preparation of dishes. Perfect to learn Balinese kitchen. Recommended!
Enjoyed the experience and learnt great tips. Food was delicious and staff were friendly and helpful
Great class we had 12 people separated into 2 groups. That was a comfortable size. We all cut ingredients and shared the preparation. So much food left over. I highly recommend taking a pen to make notes on the recipes.
The chefs were very humorous and spoke good English. The visit to the traditional food market was a good addition to the cooking. The food we made/ate was amazing...maybe also because of the hours we put into making it🙂 The chefs also told us about many things to think about while cooking in general as well.
A professional and fun cooking class, with a large variety of meals and patient and friendly chefs.
We really enjoyed the class!
We started with a market tour where we looked and tasted/smelled at lots of different fruits and vegetables and given info on cooking and suitable replacements if we couldn’t find things back home Then went back to the restaurant to prepare and cook many dishes. The chef was really knowledgable, gave us loads of tips and made the day fun. The food was delicious and can’t wait to try cooking some more when I get home
Great day at this cooking class Toured markets first and was given great explanation of all ingredients we were to use. The actual cooking was great fun and very interesting Huge lunch afterwards enjoying the fruits of our labour Highly recommend
The tour started with 7 of us at the market, it was a nice numbee of people and everyone could hear and be included. When we arrived at the cooking class destination there were two large groups operating at the same time, large groups that consisted of 36, they tried their hardest to ensure everyone had a go but it was too big which made the class go for longer. They were very accomodating to dietary needs, however they were completed online with the booking and then made to explain and justify the dietary needs in front of the entire group being probed with questions of why.
Would be great if you could individually cook, instead of group cooking.
For this price at leas one drink for the lunch should be included...
Instructor was fun and funny and kept everything interesting. Anyone would enjoy it!!
The class was well planned and prepared. It was fun and informative and I definitely learned new things about cooking. The Chef was polite, good natured, encouraging and helpful. I felt it was money well spent
We had a really great time with a super bunch of people from all over the world. Chef was very knowledgeable and our tour to the market gave us a great insight into the local culture. It was a great introduction into the basics of Indonesian cooking. We learned a lot, laughed a lot and had a lot of fun. We highly recommend this class.
Great food and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend the Nia Cooking Class for everyone from beginners to food enthusiasts and experienced cooks. If you don't get a chance to do the cooking class, definitely find time to go have a meal at Warung Nia. We started at the local markets where our guide/chef explained local Indonesian ingredients and we tried some local fruits. Our guide/chef offered suggestions for alternatives if not available in our home country and some products OK to take back through immigration. After the markets we had a refreshing lemon ice tea and sweet dumplings in a sweet caramel-like sauce with coconut cream for morning tea. We then started out cooking class with the owner of cooking school. We each got a printed recipe book, so we could take notes on the pages. The chef was knowledgeable, easy to understand, funny and made us all feel very relaxed. During the cooking class there were parts everyone participated in and parts only some people did the cooking and others watched. The chef made sure everyone got a few turns to cook. It worked well because it gave you some time to take notes, have a drink, take photos and sit down for a bit. The chef asked if anyone had any special dietary requirements and was very careful to take these into consideration. At the end we sat down to a feast of amazing foods, some we had cooked and some extras to try. There was much more than we could eat. We were each given a certificate of participation. At the end I forgot to take home my recipes so I emailed the cooking school and they very kindly sent me a copy by email.
Amazing class, well organized and a lot of fun! I really enjoyed it and learned how to make so many dishes. The instructors are very professional and it was a great experience! Highly recommended!
We had a fantastic time cooking traditional Balinese cuisine, and an even better time eating it! I'd definitely recommend this experience 😊
I really enjoyed the class, we got to check out the market first and he explained all the different types of produce. Then when we started cooking, he made sure everyone had a part in making the food. You can tell he's very passionate about teaching balinese cooking and also hilarious, I highly recommend this class.
fabulous day the tour of the market was very informative Chef was very entertaining and everyone had the opportunity to participate Get to take the recipes with you with alternatives for ingredients not available at home Ended with communal lunch with all the dishes prepared Highly recommend this class to all who come to come to Bali
Very well guided, very good information, the cook has a good humor and he knows how to handle all the different people of a lot of different countries, a very good selection of balinese food. The little helpers were nice as well. The market was interesting, too. Thank you for a wonderful day. Martin Heldstab Switzerland
It was a very enjoyable day. We learnt lots. Had fun and the food was delicious.
Great class! There was 6 of us and it was so much fun. The market tour was interesting and the cooking lots of fun. The food was delicious too. We had a great time! Highly recommend!! Thanks lots!
Great class with fun and knowledgeable chefs. Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed our class, very informative and fun. Food was great and chefs extremely friendly. Would do it again.
Myself and 4 girlfriends really enjoyed our morning tour of the market, preparing and cooking our lunch. Our chef made it a really fun experience...would highly recommend!!
Loved the class! Teacher was great, really enjoyed
Too many students in the same class, and if you are not good at English it would be very difficult to understand what’s the chief say.
Tommy the chef made as he was funny and had a great personality. Very informative about the ingredients that we were using and what taste alternative ingredients would taste if we used them at home. Would recommend this Balinese class to anyone. Kirk
Great visit to the market, very informative. Chef Tommy very happy and class was amazing , eleven dishes, and we were all involved. So much tasting and them a banquet lunch to follow. Worth every penny. A must do!
So many different items on the menu. It’s easy to cook and we all had a go. Lots of laughs and the markets are very interesting.
Tommy was really engaging and interested in everyone. Enjoyed learning the Balinese style of cooking and food was beautiful. Thank you .
Perfect mix of instruction practice and humor. Felt totally engaged and learned a bit mitre about Balinese culture. Market trip was edifying. Food was great if I say so myself.
Great cooking lesson,
Fantastic chef, and menu etc but it took a long time before we got cooking , waited more than an hour before going to market , which they should have not done , market wasn’t necessary , they could just show us the Difft ingredients at the school , too many people , so we were there until 3,pm , but the cooking itself and chef was excellent
After we arrived, we got welcome drinks and a introduction about the class. Than we went to a local market, what i really enjoyed Tommy our guide and Chef explained us so may interesting things and showed us the most important ingredients for Balinese cuisine. After the market a driver took us back and we got delicious Balinese sweet breakfast snack which had an amazing taste! And so we Split into three groups and started to cook. I really enjoyed learning all these things but what I didn’t like that much was that we actually just prepared the food this included chopping and mixing but then went over the next recipe and brought the other thing to the restaurants kitchen to cook it in the meantime. This was just because so we have time to learn how to cook as many things within the five hours but I would have loved to cook less dishes but these ones all by ourselves. And also because we were so many people, we had to cook one meal together with 7 other people. The chefs and the other people were so friendly and helpful and we had so much fun and in the end we got all the food we prepared to eat. This was such a delicious meal! We also got the certificate and a small book with all the recipes we cooked.
The class was well presented and the food delicious. Some good cooking tips in a relaxed and fun class.
I have been to a few classes in other countries but this was the best. I had my three children with me and they loved it. Everybody was involved with the cooking and the chefs were first class! Will recommend this class to anybody coming to Bali
We really liked the cooking class. Everything was explained so well and the food was delicious. The chef is a great guy. He’s funny and he really wants to learn you something. We had a great time and I already recommended you at some friends who are visiting Bali soon!
Qhat a fantastic experience. We covered a lot of different dishes with an amazing chef. There were 3 of us and we have all agreed it was a highlight of our time in Bali. Thankyou so much 😊
Chef Komang and Tommy guided us through a Balinese culinary odyssey. I lost count of how many recipes we went through - maybe 13? I recommend skipping breakfast so you have room to eat all the delicious dishes at the end.
Learned to prepare many yummy dishes from scratch. Great tips and advice for preparing at home.
We had the best day. It was easy to book this online and have a pickup included. We were welcomed with a lovely morning tea after a tour of the local market. Great interaction with the whole group and learnt so much about ingredients for amazing dishes.
Enjoyed learning about and cooking the Balinese dishes Komang made the experience fun learnt new skills great venue. Highly recommended as a must do when visiting Bali.
Fun, interesting, thorough and delicious! Learned unique techniques in a relaxed environment. Made several dishes and each person had a chance to prepare many components. Highly recommend.
We cooked many dishes and were able to take home all recipes which was great! The class was interactive and my partner and I were able to participate in multiple occasions during the cooking process which is sometimes quite challenging in a large group setting! The chef and his assistant chefs were really funny and entertaining throughout the process! It's a fun and great way to start out any day in Bali!
We covered many dishes during the class which was amazing! We all got to pariticipate in the cooking multiple times which is sometimes lacking in group cooking classes! Great way to meet new people and learn authentic Balinese cooking! My partner and I really loved the experience and it was a great start to our day!
i met nice people and loved learning about not only the food and the culture aswell. the chef was very generous with sharing his information and he made us all participate in the class.
We had just a fab day at Nias cooking class. It was entertaing, fun , educational, cultural and the outcome was delicious food. Great value for money. A must do when in Seminyak.
We really enjoyed this class, it was an awesome experience and highly recommend
Fun and loved the market and environment, relaxing
I don’t really enjoy cooking but learnt lots and had fun
It was our first cooking class and we had a wonderful time. The chef was patient, funny, and easy to understand. I appreciated that everything was kept very clean and all of our questions were easily answered. I feel prepared to make several of the recipes at home, and the recipe book that was included was perfect.
Thoroughly recommend this class it is fun, informative & the food is amazing! The only downside side was we couldn't eat it all! Really great to learn about traditional balinese food & be able to go home & recreate it.
Fabulous food made easy in a fun environment. Highly recommended!
Morning class in Bali, Tommy was a fountain of knowledge and a pleasure to be with. What fun we had!
The whole experience, from the time we arrived until the time we left, was extraordinary. I would recommend this class at any time.
Really good! Thoroughly recommend it. Interesting, informative & most of all great fun. Go by yourself or in a group - you are welcomed & included in all the activities.
The team at Nia's are great. Really interesting cultural experience and we learnt so much about Balinese cuisine. The recipe book will be handy when I try these at home Thanks!
Very experienced chef, i learned a lot about Indonesian food. Would definitely recommend this class!
Total enjoyed our day with my 13 year old daughter. I'm a Chef and l would do this cooking class again.
Amazing and fun!!!
Great experience! My mother and I were able to bond together through culture and taste. We love to cook and we love trying out new cuisines. This class presented us with authentic Balinese tradition and technique. Aside from the cooking lesson, i loved the market tour. I got to immerse myself with the natives and they were so warm and smiling. Everything was organized from the pick up until the very end of the session.
I had such a great time at this cooking class learning how to make so many different and amazing Balinese dishes. I highly recommend this class to anyone who enjoys cooking and eating Balinese food. I took the class alone, but it didn’t matter as the group was warm and inviting. It was a splendid time! The morning market tour was also really informative.
A true Balinese experience. My vegetarian request was so well catered for!
I loved the market experience, and Komang's knowledge in regards to substituting herbs and vegetables if we can’t get them back home was great.
At first you get to do a tour in the market where you learn a lot about the food and the traditions. After, they serve you a good ice tea with a little bowl of sugary rice. Then we start the cooking class. We sadly don’t all cook at the same time, but we learn how to prepare the traditional plates and we taste them after. We get to have tips about cutting or mixing the food. It was a very nice experience.
From start to finish this experience was fabulous. Our chef was so good, engaging, entertaining and made everything welcome and included. Lots of courses and hands on. I would recommend taking this class to anyone wanting to enjoy good food, learning how to cook the local food and meeting new people. Thank you
Well-organized cooking class!
It was so well organised , fun, and I learnt a great deal
We really enjoyed the class - lots of fun and tasty dishes we can recreate at home. The chef/trainer was excellent too - esp with reference to what products we could take back to NZ and what could be substituted if we could not get all ingredients when we got home.
Interesting tour at market then hands on cooking with entertaining chef and fun group of people. A feast of everything we cooked at the end of the morning.
My husband and I really enjoyed the cooking class at Nia Warung in Seminyak. It's well organised, informative and fun with a group of lovely travellers from around the world! We cooked several dishes and they were fresh and tasty. I highly recommend this cooking class to travellers visiting Seminyak.
Had a fabulous time. Great class.
I really enjoyed the whole class from start to finish. It began with a tour of a small food market where one of the instructors taught us about the different fruit and vegetables, their practicalities and links with tradition. He spoke very clear English and was engaging to listen to. The cooking class itself was set outside with lots of opportunity to be hands-on. I learnt a lot and the instructor was simply excellent! I didnt catch either of their names but both Indonesian instructors were incredible and I highly recommend taking this class.
My first time traveling to Bali, this class was the perfect thing to do before trying all the amazing food on this island!
Making friends with strangers in the minibus to the cooking class, visiting the local market learning about wonderful new foods and ingredients, having so much fun chopping mixing and cooking ingredients, having such a fun, informative teacher and then eating our creations....I couldn’t wish for a better day! What a brilliant experience, thank you!
Together with my husband we truly enjoyed the cooking class. We learned many new things on the market tour and had much fun during the class itself. The best thing was that everyone was involved and got to do something interesting for example stuffing a chicken with curry paste or wrapping it with the banana leaf. And everything we cooked was delicious so we much enjoyed our lunch after the classes. We also received a nicely prepared cooking notebook with all of the recipes so that we can recreate them back in home in order to revive our Balinese memories.
Beautiful Balinese food! you learn multiple dishes from scratch! The head chef is so passionate wise funny and you can tell he takes each class likes it’s his first. Even after 20 years! Highly recommend! must do
This class was so very enjoyable...from arriving to the end 6 hours later...great experience walking through the local market. Learning about the exotic fruits available in Bali Going back to the class cutting up and preparing the ingredients..our head chefs and staff were very friendly..have told many friends of the great experience I had...now I have my own cookbook I will share with family and friends my love of Balinese cuisine...loved every moment..thank you so very much..
The teacher was very good. Could understand him really well, and it was all hands-on throughout the class. Will definitely do more classes next time I come back.
We really enjoyed the whole day. From the market tour to the spice preparation, to the cooking and then the eating. The chef was great, he made sure he included everyone - we all took turns getting involved. I’m vegetarian and he made sure all the meat/fish was kept separate and that I had my own dishes to try as we went along. I was just so impressed with the organisation - as soon as we finished with something a helper would swoop in and remove it. There were lots of special touches too - pick up from hotel, transport to the market, the receipe book, the apron, the morning tea, bottle of water and then certificate at the end. And the meal at lunch time was just so amazing. It’s the best food we’ve had in Indonesia. Thank you so much!
We had a ball and learnt so much. Our chef was fantastic and certainly kept us entertained while teaching us a thing or 2 about Balinese cooking. A wonderful experience. Thank you.
The instructor is knowledgeable and insightful. He not just showed us the ingredients and the cuisine method but also gave us valuable points that we can take home if we want to cook ourselves later on. Overall it was fun, enlightening, and impressive.
Really enjoyed the cooking tutorial by the experienced chefs and the knowledge they had of Balinese food and their culture in general. Friendly and attentive service followed by some excellent food cooked by ourselves. Great experience. Can't wait to come back!
A great way to spend a morning in Seminyak. The class was interactive and fun, even learnt some new skills. The food was very tasty and authentic Balinese food.
The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. The course is well worth the money........and you get to eat what you have cooked.
Informative, hilarious and all-round great fun!
My 7year old son and I did the cooking school on Friday 23rd of June. It was wonderful learning about the local dishes and trying them out. They were wonderful with my son and included him in all aspects of the cooking process. He was very much included in the whole process. The teacher was very knowledgeable and was able give the names for the ingredients in Germany and the Netherlands and South Africa (the nationalities doing the course). It took till 1pm to finish the cooking which was a little long. My only suggestion would be that the part at the beginning when the teacher gives a talk about cooking could be shorter. Other than that, it was great!
Great chefs, lots of fun and a big class, around 20 but everyone was busy and everything explained really well, ten out if ten :-)
It was lots of fun. Very informative and food was amazing.
What a great class. Learned a lot and enjoyed great food and company
We all thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class and special note to Tommy our host for the morning. Very infomative of culture and technique and a great personality. Look forward to heading home and trying recipes.
Learned a lot but a little disappointed that I couldn’t get involved a all dishes as there were 13 in the class. Interactive chef who was very informative. Friendly staff who helped out where needed. Would recommend this class.
Excellent. Class of 24 but very interactive. Started off with a trip to the markets
We had a wonderful time at this class. The chef is thorough and informative and lots of fun. The food we cooked amazing and can’t wait to try it at home. Thanks for a great day out.
Fantastic experience .I’m not the best cook but the food prepared by us was beautiful .Chef was very knowledgeable of many cuisines and gave us hints of what substitutes could be used from different countries. I came on my own and was very welcomed .Its a must experience.😀 Thankyou to all the staff
A wonderful class with a fantastic teacher. We had a great time. Highly recommend
Wonderful memories during the cooking class. The teacher is full of experience and participating the class is to get the knowledge of Indonesia food. Will definitely join next time again!
The class was well run. Lots of hands-on cooking, the food was amazing, the teacher was very friendly and made the class fun. We had the best day!!
My husband and I really enjoyed this cooking class. We met some great people from other parts of the world. It was very interactive and Chef Comang shared his weslth of knowledge about Balinese cooking with us. We enjoyed the dishes we helped to make for lunch and had the opportunity to chat and laugh with the group. A great time was had by us all. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in lesrning more about Indonesiancooking and culture. Karen from Australia 😊😊😊
Fantastic day with informative and humorous hosts. Picked up heaps of tips and excited to replicate from my Nia Cookbook the delicious meals we prepared. Recommend this cooking course to anyone visiting Bali and looking for a great cooking day.
This cooking course was fantastic. We made 8 dishes and had a great meal afterwards. I am gluten free and the chef was very aware of allergies and made separate dishes for everything I couldn't eat. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, I'm looking forward to making the dishes back home!
Very informative cooking class which was entertaining and fun. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Bali
Very informative, hands on and most importantly fun!
It was great to learn how to make all the pastes for the bases of the dishes. Everyone was involved in the preparing & cooking process, it was a lot of fun! The chef was very helpful, informative and entertaining. My only suggestion is for the chef to wear a name badge too. I highly recommend this cooking class!
This was great. A new experience for me having been to Bali many times before. Koman is a fantastic chef, knows all about every ingredient there is to use in Balinese cooking, also very friendly. Would highly recommend this to anyone.
The Warang Nia cooking class was wonderful. We all got to participate in cooking and preparing the dishes and the presenter was very informative and funny. He had a great sense of humour and made the entire experience very entertaining. We were even able to purchase a satay sauce block at the local markets and bring it home. I’m yet to experiment with it but am really looking forward to trying it.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class with Chef Komang- Chef Komang was wonderful in his tutelage and we made all the courses we were taught on the day. We worked alongside a great range of people who did the course with us and we all had a good time together. Would do another class with Chef Komang again!
Amazing class with an amazing host
We have recommended the class to our host and he is going to have his housekeeper take it. We have told others about it.
Loved the cooking class , market tour and eating the great food afterwards with a lovely group of people and of course the instructor was the best teacher ever it was hands on and he checked we all got the instructions before we cooked , best thing I've done in Bali !!!
Loved the cooking class at Nia’s
What a great day out. Meeting people, visiting the local market, and then learning mew cooking techniques and recipes. The teacher chef was very patient and his skills shone out. With the day finishing with our well prepared food and a cold Bintang beer, it was most enjoyable and great value. Highly recommended.
I’d thoroughly recommend this class to everyone who enjoys food and cooking
We loved everything from going to the local market to eating the yummy food after we had finished cooking. A fabulous way to spend half a day. Would definitely recommend this class. And the flea markets next door are great shopping too! Ive already cooked two of the recipes we learnt since returning and the family loves them!
Highly recommend this Cooking class. The whole experience was great ! The teacher was funny and knowledgeable. Really helpful staff. We started off with an insightful trip to the local market and then learnt how to prep the food before cooking. We ate it for lunch and was delicious 😊 Had a really group of people in the class which made it fun. They also accommodated vegetarian and had a good selection for lunch. Would do it again!
The teacher was really good
We had to reschedule our cooking class for another day as due to sickness which meant we could only go on our last day there for a couple of hours. If the couple of hours we spent was anything like how the rest of the day went them all I can say that would have had a ball. I missed the full day but what I did experience made me seriously regret that we missed out on what would have been a day of learning laughing and eating. Next time I am in Bali I will certainly make sure I get to do a full day.
Great day, learnt a lot and lots of fun! Michelle - Melbourne
This is a fantastic experience, though we booked it because the weather was not so great, If had known how much fun we were going to have I would have forgone a sunny day of our holiday to do this cooking class. Great hands on cooking everyone gets in and helps with the cooking, from slicing and dicing to cooking the dishes. All followed by a massive feed at the end and take home a cook book of the dishes that we prepared. Our whole party ( 6 of us ) thoroughly enjoyed the day and our ages ranged from 19 to 50 yrs old.
The chief is very nice and professional ! Must try
Great cooking exp. Prepared, cooked and ate numerous delicious dishes.
Truly lovely people delivering a cooking class of the highest standard. The ability to visit the local market with the chef is a great addition to the class. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone considering going.
For me it was very interesting because I wanted to cook myself during my stay on Bali: So I got many informations about the spices, vegetables, fruits you get on Bali which I didn`t knew before. Also the cookinge with the other australiens in the class was a good talk and meeting for me as the only German. Komang, our cook, showed us everything you should know about the cooking in Bali and now I try...... Thanks a lot for this great experience
We enjoyed the range of recipes we learned to cook and the techniques we learned to make them. The teacher was very good, but I felt he was a bit bossy at the beginning. Facilities were very good. The instructor seemed concerned about the safety of the food preparation, and that was good. It was very nice to eat together at the end. Overall an excellent experience.
The class was a lot of fun and laughs. Learnt a lot with Bagus’ unique delivery. Highly recommended if you enjoy Balinese food.
Very nice class, Chef Bagus is both informative and entertaining. The staff were accommodating and made all the guests feel welcome. We have done many cooking classes in many vacation locations including 3 others in Bali. This one is best value for the price and especially if you only want to spend about 5 hours time. We thoroughly enjoyed the cooking, the comraderie, and the meal.
The group thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class especially visiting the markets. Mufu is a great Chef and made everyone feel very welcome. A good time was had by all. Thank you for a wonderful day.
Genoten van een fantastische cookingclass! Als ik thuis kom maakt ik de lekkere pasta voor kip/vlees als eerste. Zelfs mijn man die nooit kookt is enthousiast.
Chef Bagus is amazing in his humorous management of the class. Started at 9 am we learnd about ingredients in the local market. Back in the restaurant(also recommended for diner!) we started to prepare 12 Indonesian dishes in about 3 hours. At the end we eat that lovely food we maked together. I recommend this class to everyone.
This is a fun-filled cooking class. We helped prepare 9 dishes in total and the market tour is really good and informative which helped us a lot to understand more about the Bali culture and cuisine. Chef Bagus and his team did a wonderful job!
The class was really well run, all staff were helpful and knowledgeable. The food we made was some of the most flavourful food I've eaten in all my visits to Bali. Highly recommend!
The class was very well organised and we did learn a bit about Balinese cooking although I would have preferred a more hands on experience. We didn't really get much opportunity to cook ourselves.
Chef Bagus and staff fabulous a greatvteacher. Learnt alot. Only improvement my group thought would be a help would be the oppurtunity to be taught and then use some knife skills in preparing ingredients Some of your competitors do this. This would stop us from doing the class again. But overall very hapoy with the class and cost very resonable. Overall 8/10 score.
We really enjoyed the class. Bagus was a good teacher and made it fun. We all enjoyed our cooking after and it was really yummy
the seasoning, the tips and the stories make the class a unique moment that is worth to be experienced
The class was fun and informative with hands on experince
if you love to cook then your crazy not to do this class! The chef is a true professional and has a great sense of humour. The food we cooked was absolutely amazing and so much of it! 5 stars from us
It was a big group of people from around the world , I thought that it would not work, however the class was very interactive and great fun. Chef Bagus was entertaining and talented. I would recommend this to everyone for a wonderful Bali experience.
Amazing class with fun and nice people! The chef tips were valuable and made the difference!
One of the best things to do while in Bali. Fantastic experience of the local market and how to create some amazing dishes. Hosts were super friyand informative. Great for any level of cook too!
Bagus is the most welcoming chef and a great English speaker! Really good to pick up some Balinese cooking tricks and tips and a good way to experience an introduction to the cooking culture of Bali! Would recommend 100%
Warung Nia cooking class was a fantastic day. The market tour was great in disovering the ingredients we would be using and the cooking class was amazing. Chef Bagus is both hilarious and knowledgeable and the food was beyond delicious.
This was such a great part of our Bali visit! Chef Bagus was so charismatic! Funny and charming, it was way above average for your typical cooking class. Highly recommend!
Chef Bagus was a lot of fun, the food was delicious!
Chef Bagus and his team did a wonderful job. The market tour was informative and interesting. The cooking class was entertaining and fun at the same time. Chef Bagus is a wonderful teacher and entertainer. We had a great time with Chef Bagus and his team in Nia Cooking Class. Thank you.
It was my sisters birthday and I wanted to book something fun and different so I dragged her to this and she loved it! We even went back to the place for dinner the next day. Chef Bagus is so entertaining and knowledgeable. We interacted with people from different places and learnt so much too. Definitely a good way to spend an afternoon. The market tour was a bit of a letdown as it's a long explanation of basic vegetables and it was really hot but I would recommend it any day! Thank you.
Chef Bagus is very talented! He can cook, speak well and capture attention of audience/students, lead his team. The market tour should be an eye opener for visitors from non-Asian countries and was not different from our own markets at home. Learnt some tips and Indonesian cooking from him. It was fun although the pace was too fast and would have been better if there was either a smaller group or more time to do more hands on preparation and cooking. The notebook could not be followed at some point in time and we were trying to follow.
FIVE STAR experience very professional and entertaining well worth the class fee would have no problem recommending to future students
My friend and I booked this class the night before. It seemed like a good price and a good amount of time, as we were located in Legian and didn't want to travel too far. After being picked up and taken for a market tour, learning all about the different spices and ingredients used in Balinese cooking, we were driven to Warung Nia, where our cooking class took place. Chef Bagus runs this class, and if you can imagine your typical hardened, shouty chef but with a twinkle in his eye, that's Chef Bagus. He keeps you on your toes the whole time, asking you to pick the 'least hot' chilli, pushing you to create an amazing dish in ten minutes (and then after you stress slightly, he shows you exactly how you would do it) and as always, making sure you have a try. Go for the food, stay for Chef Bagus. You won't be disappointed.
My son and I did the course. We had a lovely day and saw some great meals cooked. I would have perhaps liked a little more hands on, even though we watched, actually doing it makes it sink in more. But, it was a lot of fun and our teacher Bagus, was very good, and funny. We learnt a lot about the Balinese/Indonesian cooking style.
We had a very enjoyable time & just loved the food we cooked
What an experience!!! Chef Bagus was entertaining. He taught us well...we were in laughter through most of the session. We highly recommend this course if you are interested in the local cooking. On our next holiday, we will book in on another day as there are different dishes taught on different days. A BIG THANK YOU to Chef Bagus. You definitely are BAGUS!
Very knowlegable tour guide for market. Great host /teacher/chef in Bagus. Very informative, entertaining and delicious. Great organisation and great to take home the mini recipe book. Well worth it.
Such a fun, informative day ! It started with a trip to the local markets, then back to the restaurant to start our lessons, Bagus was excellent and shared a wealth of knowledge along with his cheeky humour with us. Well worth doing :)
This was such a fun and interesting experience!! Chef Bagus is an entertaining and very skilful cook. He taught us about life in Bali, the importance of food in celebrations and how to cook Balinese food even if we don't have all of the ingredients when we get home. We tasted over 12 delicious dishes and left feeling inspired to explore more Balinese cooking. Definitely 5 stars! Highly recommended! Terima kasih, Bu Cate
I would recommend this class to everyone who cooks or not!
The cooking course was so much fun and very informative. Chef Bagus was so good and very funny. The food was so delicious. I can't wait to get home to try the recipes. It was also a great mix of people.
Was good fun and very funny experience. Recommend for anyone in the seminyak area or staying in Bali in general. The chef is amazing at creating a really good team environment which made the class so much better.
My wife and I loved the cooking class, we had a memorable day
A little frustrated we didn't start on time (40 mins late) and that transfer was only to the event, they don't return you to your hotel.
Chef Bagus is one of a kind, mixing some serious teaching lessons with great fun, a lot of interaction with each participants,l. A to do in Bali!
Went here with my my wife. Great chef. Funny and informative. Show lots of different techniques and use of local product and home alternatives. Most ingredients prepared ahead of time to save time and fingers being cut off by inexperienced class. Got to mix most ingredients and see how balance can change by adding this or that. Supplied with recipe book with 12 recipes. Sat down and had lunch feast at end. Good value at $38aus. (5hrs) if you want professional class pay $300 to 500. Great for home chefs. Went back for dinner a few days later and chef Bagus came out of kitchens greeted us and had staff sing welcome song. Do yourself a favour. Try it.
It was a good morning, starting at the markets. The chef was fun, knowledgeable and taught us a lot. Everything was clean and well organised and the food was delicious. We went on a Monday
Fun and informative cooking. No need to cut the ingredients yet plenty of insight into Balinese cooking. tips and recipe s for Balinese spice sauces eat part for me! Suitable for all ages.
The food was fantastic, learnt a lot for an experienced chef. Had fun and met some nice people
Great cooking class , learnt so much, not so much hands on, but great recipes that you can cook at home. Bagus the teach great bloke who spoke very good English
Such an amazing day! The head chef was informative and so much fun! Amazing value for money and the food was incredible! Thanks
Fantastic cooking class, learnt a lot about Balinese cooking. Bagus was very engaging and loves his job! Thank you for a fabulous day!
The cooking class was really nice! The chef made the whole experience amazing and the food was delicious. Definitely a must when you are in Bali!
Just fantastic chef worked so hard to make sure all had a great time , I learned lots about Bali and it's dishes. Highly recommended
A good morning with Buddy. Great host and knowledgeable about food and cooking. hands on experience and great tips to take home ...
My husband and I did the cooking class together and had so much fun. We would recommend the class for anyone who is interested to learn about and experience authentic balinese food.
We signed up for the Nia Cooking School on our last day in Bali, and we're so glad we did. Vagus was hilarious, and we learned how to cook 12 Balinese dishes. We loved the market tour and can't wait to cook these recipes when we get home!
My partner and I went to this class just before leaving Bali in August and had a really enjoyable time. Learnt lots, the chef was a great personality and met lots of people from around the world. Wish we had had more time to prep or cook the food ourselves but this was probably due to our lack of skills not the course! Would definitely recommend as it was one of the more affordable cooking classes in Seminyak but you didn't feel like you missed out! Thanks Nia's
