We took our lads with us and we all enjoyed this wonderful evening. We made a day of it with a private driver to Ubud catching all the sites on the way. Finishing at this unique dinner spot. Fantastic sunset views and such a professionally run event. A must regardless of where you are based.

Don't read anything about it. Just go and enjoy every surprising minute. If they keep the program and the fair price, it will always be worthy.

We had the best time at this cooking class with lots of laughs. You go to the owners home and him and his wife are both hilarious and warm and soooo welcoming! They really do treat you like it's your home too. We cooked many delicious dishes. They accommodated my peanut allergy and others who were vegetarian. MUST DO IF... More

The food was the best i had of any place in Bali. Puspa, Wayan and all other staff were fantastic. They were friendly, knowledgeable, welcoming and funny. To experience true Bali culture and food this one you have to do. Better than five star.

I really enjoyed and had fun at this cooking class. The house is lovely and the owners are extremely nice and friendly, I really felt welcomed. I was particularly pleased because they veganised some of the recipes for me, the others were already vegan. My group was small and we cooked in pairs. There were a lot of things that... More

If you go to Bali (near Ubud) you can not miss this cooking class. Loved every part of it. Very well arranged, the most friendly staff and hosts. You go to the market first where you can taste some of the local fruits and the owner/host tells you about some herbs, fruits and vegetable. After that you go to his... More

Awesome from start to finish... So enjoyable! The owner and her husband were so extremely lovely and treated us like family, offering delights and space/teddy for my daughter to go to sleep too. You have to try this experience, it is one of a kind and one you will always cherish. So worth the money and the distance!
