Would highly recommend this ramen cooking class ran by beautiful Nao. She was very friendly and was there helping us every step of the way. The end result turned out perfectly and feel very capable of replicating the recipies at home. Nao was a fantastic and very fun host, must do in Kyoto!

We spent a lovely afternoon making Ramen, chicken and cucumber salad with Aya. We happened to be the only two who were booked for this class so it was awesome having such a personal experience. I love that Aya gave us so much background on the traditional ways ramen is made. It definitely deepened my respect for this cuisine in which I already love.

Aya was also so generous to share tips on other restaurants and sights to see in Kyoto which was very helpful.

I would definitely book another course if I came back to Kyoto!

My partner and I were well received by our host, Jamie, who gave us a great beer, sake and whisky tasting at the studio along with some delicious yakitori skewers and a hotpot (made by his wife Aya, which was very tasty!). Even though it was just my partner and I on the tour Jamie was great and it felt like we were visiting a friend rather than a standard food tour.

We headed out on a walk through Gion (which is quiet but lovely at night) to a great member's only bar and later for okonomiyaki. Jamie explained lots of interesting facts about the area along the way (which was much better than the rubbish tour guide we had the day before!!!).

All in all we had a great experience and would highly recommend this, particularly if you want to get away from the crazy crowds of tourists in daytime Kyoto.

Thanks for a great night in Kyoto!

We arrived at Eat Kyoto after a week of traveling and eating out for dinner. The home environment and Nao's gracious hospitality created a comfortable setting for our Ramen cooking class experience. Nao went to school in the USA and has perfect English, so instructions were clear and the conversation was interesting. Our meal of Ramen, chicken and cucumber salad will definitely be one we recreate back home.

We not only learned about the actual preparing of the ramen but also about the ingredients, what they're made of, how they taste when they're cooked and more! Our instructor was fun, engaging, and full of great tips about traveling in Kyoto. I'd highly recommend a class with Eat Kyoto.

Aya, the chef, is very responsive and has great communication leading up to your reservation. We had a little trouble finding the place... Google Maps has you looking for a place called "Happy Pie," which seems to be a mis-translation of "Happy Bike." The cooking class is above the Happy Bike store, which Aya's husband runs.

Once we found the place, the real magic begins. From scratch, we made our own ramen noodles and broth. You also make a cucumber salad and karaage (fried chicken... it was SOOO good!). You also get 1 free welcome drink (beer or juice).

We learned a lot about Japanese cooking tools and techniques, and overall had an amazing time! Highly, highly recommend!

Great experience and both great fun and food , we would fully recommend anyone to try this. Enjoyed making the noodles so much , I bought a pasta machine when I came home! I have replicated the meal at home a couple of times since and have now ventured into more Japanese cooking.

It was raining on the day I went to learn the secrets to fresh ramen noodles, and spending the grey afternoon holed up in a cozy kitchen making warm, delicious things was the perfect accompaniment to the weather.

In addition to being fun, full of friendly people (some of the best people take cooking classes), and led by a very dynamic ramen expert, I learned to make ramen! I am very excited to cook for my friends.

The cooking experience was really great fun and very informative, it was carried out in a relaxed manner and there was no pressure. Aya certainly knows her stuff, and I have now been inspired to cook Japanese food, making my own noodles and trying other adventurous recipes. I would thoroughly recommend this experience!
