I loved the class and would most definitely recommend!!
Had the most amazing experience! Class moved at a good pace and we got to try a wide variety of dishes, the assistants were helpful, friendly and then entire experience could not have been executed better. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.
I went with my friend on a very short 2-day trip to Bali, and we decided to take a cooking class with Paon Bali Cooking School. My only downside was the market tour. I had high expectations for an open air market, and I was very let down. It was cramped However, the cooking class was excellent! They provided us clear instructions (especially for people who are not gifted in cooking, such as myself), instructors were engaging and friendly, and we even met the owner, who also instructed us. I enjoyed cooking traditional Balinese/Indonesian cuisine, and I would recommend this class to those interested in cooking, and/or the culture of Bali and Indonesia!
Very good class. Friendly and easy to follow. All food was very delicious.
Great way to spend the day, the trip to the market and the rice paddy was helpful cultural context. The class itself was informative, entertaining and the food was delicious. A big shout out goes to Aunty Puspa who is just fabulous :)
Wonderful experience, highly would recommend this cooking class. Very informative and the meal we prepared was excellent!
I loved learning, prepping, cooking, and dining at Paon Bali. The food was delicious and I’m super excited to try the recipes at home.
Having it at a balinse home really makes that expression that much special. Food was delicious and easy to cook at home. If your looking for a great authentic cooking class this is it I’m definitely done ng this again.
We initially thought Balinese way of cooking was too complicated but after attending the class we’re confident we can prepare some Balinese recipes easily. The cooking class was well organized and fun! Would highly recommend to people visiting Bali!
Great setting for a cooking class. Lovely hostess. The ingredients were fresh, and the recipes delicious. Hotel pick up and drop off was an added bonus.
Such a great cooking class, you get to cook every step of the way and learn a ton! We met some great people at the class and had a ton of fun!
Paon Cooking Classes are nothing short of excellent. A great mix of information, demonstration & hands on tasks, as well as a feeling of accomplishment when you see and taste what you and the group has prepared and cooked. Ingredients are fresh and hygiene standards are A grade. Puspa and Wayan are perfect hosts. Funny and engaging, as well as warm and genuine, the staff make you feel so welcome whilst being utmost professionals. I would go again tomorrow if I weren’t leaving Ubud!
There was 7 girlfriends in our group on a weeks holiday. We enjoyed this cooking experience immensely and I can honestly say, one of the highlights of our week in Bali. Puspa was very engaging and entertaining and her staff were also brilliant. Such a Beautiful family home and our cooking class setting was just so relaxing with the tropical surroundings. Eating our lunch was delicious..such a treat! Thank you Puspa 🌺
And it's not because I cooked them myself! haha Our instructor was super informative and I love the fact that she tells us other alternatives to the ingredients used and gave us each a cookbook with recipes of all the dishes we made today. This makes it so much easier to try to do it at home when we came back! Great clean facility, super photogenic!
had the best time, learnt so much and had a great time doing so. thanks!
5 giant star! fantastic. in a family country house but absolutely professional. everything was perfect. Puspa is a great teacher! eccezionale. consiglio a tutti. in campagna in una vera casa di famiglia ma organizzata come una scuola altamente professionale. Pulsa è una grande insegnante!
Great afternoon/evening, big group but everyone was involved in making the food and the food was delicious. Would recommend!
This cooking class was one of the best experience in Bali. Everything was planned smoothly, we learnt how to make basic dishes and sauces of the island and afterwards had a dinner. The lady chef and her staff was amazing. I recommend this activity very much.
Very good experience!
5 GIANT STARS!!! I would give this class 10 stars if I could. :) A girlfriend and I signed up for this cooking class during our one-week vacation in Bali after 3 weeks of doing a cultural exchange/teaching program in Java. After spending an entire month in Indonesia, I can say that tonight's cooking class is at the top of the list for the best experiences we have had in this beautiful country. The setting is serene, the hosts are friendly and entertaining, everything on the menu is delicious... I could go on and on. Puspa and Wayan were incredibly accommodating to my tree nut allergy and vegetarian lifestyle. Everything we made was nut-free and vegan. There wasn't a single dish that we had to skip due to dietary restrictions, which is very rare, even when eating in my home country! With a severe tree nut allergy, I have honestly been very nervous to eat at most places in Indonesia, but I felt comfortable eating here since they were so careful to ensure that was no cross-contamination, and the entire group simply excluded tree nuts from all menu items. As an added perk, you get a copy of all recipes to take home with you so that you can recreate the meal at home! Thank you, thank you, thank you for an unforgettable evening and experience in Ubud!!!
It is a very special experience such as place, teacher, menu and global participants. I strong recommend this cooking class.
The cooking class was awesome! We made a lot of different balinese dishes which were all delicious. We learned a lot about the different ingredients and how to prepare everything. The cooking team was very friendly and funny. We would definitely recommend attending a class in Paon Bali. Thanks a lot for the experience!
Everything was lovely The tour of the markets and rice fields as was the local history Food produce Excellent
Class was fun, food was amazing, instructors were great. No complaints. Anyone who goes to Ubud must take this class
It was the highlight of our week if not our trip so far. On top of learning the traditional cuisine of bali we also feast !
The class is interesting and you will learn to cook some really nice typical Indonesian and Balinese food.
Excellent cooking course. The lady of the house is very talented and a real natural as a host. She made the experience really enjoyable. You will make lots of different dishes, all taste fantastic. We would highly recommend this course!
They are very kind and the food is great
The owner and staff were excellent and made the whole experience fun. Hygiene standards were excellent. Lots of staff to assist and the facilities and cooking areas spacious and clean. Interesting fellow cooks from all over the world and the food we prepared was very yummy. I can highly recommend the whole experience.
This was an amazing experience! The price was right, a pickup and drop off to/from our hotel, a trip to the local market with a guide to describe local foods, customs, traditions, a trip to the rice field (loved the explanation of how to harvest the most popular crop in asia), and of course, the cooking and amazing meal! I also loved meeting people from all over the world during our class. Quality people, cooking, instruction, and home. Thank you!!
The whole experience was absolutely great! I would say this is a must-do when you're in Bali! The teachers are lovely and entertaining and the food we made and ended up eating all together was delicious! Thank you!
Our instructor, Puspa, was very helpful and funny! She kept the whole group entertained. We cooked a lot of traditional Balinese dishes. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is looking for a great culture experience in Bali! It was the highlight of our trip! Thank you Paon cooking school!
We had so much fun at this class. We were a group of friends and we all enjoyed the class. It was very well organised, well explained and the dishes we made were delicious! Would highly recommend this cooking class!
