The class was a small student to instructor ratio 7:2. Made lots of sushi that even eating all of it was a challenge. Miako and Chikako were great instructors, super friendly and helping us make the sushi rolls while still keeping it hands on and following old traditions. There were kids in the clas and they were able to make it enjoyable for all ages. Ingredients were fresh and tasty and class was easy to find by google. The menu was printed out for us to follow and we got to take it home for future sushi attempts. Highly recommend!
We enjoyed the cooking class! Learned a lot about sushi making and hope to do it back home! It was a fun experience that we would recommend to everyone!
It was a great cooking class. Me and my 16 yo son both loved it.
We have lived in Tokyo 2-1/2 years and have tried Japanese cooking. This class gave very useful information that we will use at home. Aya was a very good instructor, and her daughter, Megumi, also gave us interesting information. The class was really good to help us understand Japanese ingredients and cooking methods. We look forward to taking the class on kaiseki. Highly recommend the class and the instructor!
The course was a lot of fun, as the host was both sweet and experienced, and was fluent in English. The setting, ingredients, atmosphere were all excellent. We really enjoyed our course and learned A LOT.
Our teacher, Aya was so lovely and welcoming. The class was in a residential area of Shinjuku, but easy to find with google maps. We shared the class with another couple, and it was nice interacting with them too. A very relaxed, fun atmosphere. Aya demonstrated the techniques to us and we were able to then try ourselves. We have a written recipe booklet for when we try to make the dishes at home. We made so much sushi, and it was great to try making the different types - maki, nigiri, California rolls. Aya mentioned a lot about Japanese culture when it comes to food choices and traditional recipes. So glad we were able to eat what we made at the end of the class, it was so lovely to enjoy what we had learnt. I would definitely recommend this class to others! And we look forward to making sushi when we get home!
Sushi making class with Aya san on 2 March! The class was conducted in English and in a cosy open kitchen environment. Aya San is very friendly and knowledgeable. She would explain and demonstrate on what needs to be done step by step. Also she ensures I understand before moving on and would answer any questions that I have. Great experience indeed! Highly recommended if you would like to get your hands on making sushi! #cookingsuntokyo
A lively, fun and very well documented class with an entertaining and interesting host. We felt very welcome and time went much too fast. Thank you !
This is a must do for everyone to complete your Japan experience... course is very informative and lots of fun. Great teacher ( Aya ) makes it interesting and speaks good english...
Such a wonderful experience! My teacher Hiromi was very thorough and taught me so many interesting things about Japanese culture. Would give this 6 stars if I could!
Will recommend to my friends
We loved the experience of preparing Sushi together with the children. Very friendly staff, lovely environment and excellent food. Thomas
We had a great, pleasant and social host who spoke great english and explained everything in a manner and pace that made it easy to follow. I was pleasantly surprised with how good the sushi actually turned out, so I'm definitely feeling more confident trying to make sushi at home after this. Highly reccomend this class!
Absolutely loved our sushi making class with Cooking Sun! The venue was a nightmare to find (its next to the German school! Helpful if directions were included in the confirmation email) but once we were there, what a fantastic lesson! Our teacher, Hiromi, was really friendly, very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English, and was just the right balance of hands on and letting us do it ourselves. We made a lovely range of things, and all tastes amazing at the end - we couldn't believe we'd made it ourselves! Really good value for money, a highlight of our trip.
