It was an awesome tour with lots of different food. Everything was included and you can also suggest food that you would like to try. It was only me who booked the tour for the evening and as a female traveller I felt safe and taken good care of. My guide was really polite and we had some nice conversations since he was really nice and his English was fine. It was a perfect tour to start my travels in Sri Lanka, to get an introduction to the local cuisine by a local and the best way to get to see the major sights of Colombo. Highly recommend!

Our excellent food tour was good preparation for the rest of our holiday. We started at 4.00 pm, by which time it was getting cooler and we enjoyed walking around the Cinnamon Gardens area calling in at various eating establishments. The cashew curry and pittu was our favorite. Finally we ended up at Galle Face Park and the lively beach where families were eagerly eating cottu and other delights. Our guide, Neem, was very informative and caring.

Our market tour and cooking school was an amazing experience and one we won’t forget soon! The tour showed us the best of Sri Lankan produce and it was great to try some new ingredients. The school is very hands-on and takes place in a well-equipped kitchen and dining room. We learned to make a variety of Sri Lankan curries using traditional utensils. Overall, a wonderful experience and one we would fully recommend to anyone visiting Sri Lanka

I've done many a cooking class and this was one of the best. It started off with a wonderful market tour walking through the stalls and stopping to look at and taste some beautiful local produce. We shopped for the ingredients to make our meal and headed back to Nim's house where the kitchen was setup for a hands on experience. One thing I always look for in a cooking class is one where each participant gets their own station and is able to make the meal from start to finish - this one didn't disappoint. We made coconut roti, coconut sambol, a vegetable curry and a meat curry and the meal was wonderful. I'd highly recommend doing this tour and cooking class - my highlight of Colombo!
