I absolutely loved this class until the last20 mins where the Auntie was pushing a 5 star rating on trip advisor. For me It was too much pushing for good ratings. Otherwise the class is awesome and beautiful the food is delicious !

I had a wonderful day at the Pain Bali Cooking Class. From the driver sent to pick me up from my resort in Nusa Dua, to the great food experience. Wayan and Puspa were genuine and so likeable. Cooking with a group of 20 people from all over the world was also very special. This is a must do while... More

This class was such an enjoyable activity in Ubud and a great way to have your dinner also. The cost includes return transport in the Ubud area which is worth the price of admission! We did the afternoon class as we didn't want the market tour (avid home cooks, we are familiar with the ingredients). This paid off as our... More

Wayan and Puspa were so so lovely. Our one year old son came with us and Wayan took him and my dad over to a local celebration and gave them full attire to wear whilst we cooked! The cooking was great but if you are after one on one then this is not for you... There was about 25 people... More

Puspa is a gem, she made everyone feel so welcome and put our teenage daughters at ease immediately. Such a gorgeous setting and so well organised. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day and the food we cooked was fantastic. Loved that we got all the recipes to take home and Puspa explained what ingredients we could substitute at home so... More

This was an enriching day! Everything was really well prepared, the food tasted good, and the hygiene was high. It was amazing to cook, talk and have fun at the same time!

My wife and I decided last minute to join the cooking class. Considering limited research and online reviews we decided to go with Paon... Needless to say Tripadvisor unbias reviews were great. Pushpa, Wayan and their crew are honest, generous, open and loving people. They open their hearts, house and food secrets with us. They made us and the other... More
