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
