    Awesome cooking class
    From the start to the finish this was amazing! Loved walking around the market giving advice what best to buy and how to use. We did so many dishes and they were all so yummy! I ate things I wouldn’t of known to order before, but this course opens my eyes. At the end we sat down and ate a feast!!! Thanks so much!!

    The best Cooking Vlass in Bali
    I loved every minute of this class!! We started with a trip to the traditional market, where our host Tommy took us around and not only explained what was going on, gave us a really informative introduction to Balinese culture and the link with the food. We had a refreshing iced tea and traditional dessert when we got back to Warung Nia.. then the class began! And what a brilliant experience, hands on and full of laughs as well as do much information!! The food we cooked was sensational.. we were so proud of ourselves!! And got to take away our certificate as well as a cook book with the recipes for everything we had cooked.. And if that wasn’t enough, the next day I received a text with photos as well as a 20% discount off our meals at the Warung. I can’t recommend this class highly enough. Well done to Tommy and the team at Warung Nia 🙏🏼😊🌺 on a side note, our meal and service when we went there for dinner was also 5 star ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Was had a blast and made amazing food whilst having a lot of fun and careful step by step instructions!
    What a brilliant family experience! We were a group of 11, including 4 teenage children. The routine was very organised, extremely clean and everyone included at all times. We laughed a lot and learned so much about the basis of Balinese food and ingredients. Don’t eat a candlenut raw 🙈 Wholeheartedly recommend this experience to all ages and abilities… excellent staffing and fabulous food at then end! Thank you!

    I recommend the class
    We were picked up from our hotel and went to the local market first. Then we went to a class in a restaurant. About 25 participants worked in smaller groups. The instructor was very cheerful and friendly. In the end, we ate what we had prepared. We received a booklet with recipes and our photos from the classes. Very good contact with the organizer also after the class. I would highly recommend.

    A must do if staying in Seminyak
    Great experience with Chef Tom! Started with market tour and then straight into cooking at Warung Nia. Twelve courses and 4 hours later we dined on our hard work. Superb morning shared with likeminded families!

    Amazing
    One of the best experiences of our family trip in Bali. Chef Tommy is a real showman and we learnt a lot of interesting things about the balinese food and culture. And of course, our meals were delicious. Can’t wait reproduce all of them at home.
    Thank you for coming and try our cooking class and thank you for your review. We are very happy if you enjoy our cooking class. Please recommend our cooking class to your friend and family and please come back again to try all our food. Have a great time and see you again Regards, Warung Nia Team

I have done a lot of cooking classes over the years and this is one of the best I have done and a must do when visiting Bali. Run out of both Kuta and Seminyak, on line booking and paying through Trip Advisor was super easy and hotel pickup was included. The day started with a visit to a market where the locals shopped it was a great insight to local produce as well as ingredients we would be using on the day. All the staff were so friendly and interacted really well with all of the guests. Chef Komang is not only entertaining but is passionate, knowledgeable and a great instructor and involves everyone in the prep and cooking. Preparing and cooking 9 traditional dishes as well as pastes and sauces. This will give you the skills to prepare a feast for your family and friends when you get home. Once we had cooked all of the dishes (although the staff did most of the hard work) we sat down with our new friends and enjoyed a beautiful banquet. A great day out and an experience not to be missed when visiting beautiful Bali 🙏🏼❤️ @warungnia @niabalinesecookongclass
done. Booking on line through Trip Advisor was easy with pick up from my hotel included. The class included a short guided tour around a local market a great insight to how the locals shop for fresh produce as well as learning about the types of produce we would be using that day. All the staff were super friendly with great interaction with the guests. Chef Komang was not only entertaining, passionate and engaging but a great instructor Involving everyone in the class in prep and cooking. Preparing and cooking 9 dishes as well as base pastes and sauces will give you all the skills to create your own feast once you are back home showing your family and friends your newly learnt culinary skills. The food was amazing and once we had completed the cooking - although the staff really did the hard work we sat down with our new friends and enjoyed a beautiful banquet. Great value you for money and a must do when visiting Bali (classes are run in Kuta and Seminyak) and really enjoyable day. 🙏🏼❤️@niabalinesecookingclass @warungnia

Tommy is a very knowledgeable chef and he understands how to explain Balinese food to Aussies. The location is a restaurant ( I had no idea what to expect) and it was all booked out for us doing the cooking lesson so it was very exclusive. At the end we made so much food. Had so much laughter. Had another Bintang and I would highly recommend anyone who loves cooking to do this, you will learn a lot and will be able to use your new understanding at home . 5 stars ⭐️

This was the second cooking class we attended in Bali and unfortunately the worst one.

If you like large crowds, chaos, and people bumping into you, this is the class for you.

We started by getting into vans and going to the small market, which was fine. We learned about some of the ingredients we were going to use in the cooking and then made our way back to the kitchen.

We didn't realise just how many people were attending this cooking class until after the market when everyone came back in their groups.

There were 3 groups of people with 20 ish in each group which were spread out at the start. We got into cooking, and that's when everyone was everywhere. Washing hands, going to the bathroom, drinks being ordered, Waiters trying to help/ not knowing what to do.

Tommy our chef was the only reason why I didn't leave as he was funny, but the other people helping out (waiters?) were rude, didn't know what was happening, telling me to add/not add things when I didn't need to.

Just when I thought that it was getting better as the other classes were sitting down to eat their food (we were running a bit behind), the restaurant opened for lunch 🙃. As you can imagine, chaos started again, I got shoulder barged a few times,trying to avoid being in the way but in the way of everyone, waiters carrying food/drinks everywhere trying to get around.

Paying nearly the same price for me and my partner to have a one on one experience at our frist class (not associated with Nia) and getting mentorship, not just putting stuff in a pan and not knowing what is happening is not what we wanted. For anyone considering this class- it really depends on what kind of environment you like to be in when learning.

Dear Katie P, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your detailed feedback. We are genuinely sorry to hear that your experience at our cooking class did not meet your expectations. Your comments are invaluable to us as they highlight areas where we need to improve. We sincerely apologize for the large crowd and chaotic environment you encountered. We understand that a crowded and disorganized setting can be frustrating and detract from the enjoyment of the cooking class. We strive to provide a pleasant and educational experience for all our guests, and it is clear we fell short in this instance. Your feedback about the confusion and lack of organization during the class is concerning. We regret that our support staff did not provide the assistance you needed and that their behavior negatively impacted your experience. We will be addressing these issues with our team to ensure they are better equipped to handle large groups and provide clear, consistent guidance to our guests. We are pleased to hear that Tommy, our chef, helped make your experience more enjoyable with his humor. However, we acknowledge that this does not make up for the overall chaotic environment and lack of personal attention you received. Regarding the overlap with the restaurant's lunch service, we apologize for the additional disruption this caused. We are currently reviewing our scheduling and class organization to prevent such issues from occurring in the future. We appreciate your comparison with your first cooking class experience and understand your disappointment in not receiving the one-on-one mentorship you expected. We are committed to improving our program to ensure that all participants receive the attention and guidance they deserve. Once again Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. We hope to have the opportunity to make this right and provide you with a much-improved cooking class experience. Warm regards, Nia Cooking Class Team

Nias cooking class provided our family of 4 adults and 3 children with a fun, informative, and memorable experience. They were very accommodating as we had 2 small children who wanted to be involved, which they were more than happy to assist with. My father in law had allergies and they quickly attending to his needs and prepared some special dishes for him, which were served right on time. The educated chef was funny, kind, and more than willing to help. Would definitely recommend this class ! Thanks again guys!

We booked the vegan cooking class - group of 4 adults and 2 children. The host Tomi was amazing - he taught us traditional Balinese flavours and we made a paste and a variety of dishes. Each dish was flavoursome in its own way. I'd highly recommend the class for anyone keen to learn Balinese food the vegan way.

We had an absolute blast doing the cooking class at Warung Nia. We met at the restaurant and then took a short car ride to the local market where the chef walked us through a couple stalls and explained various fruits, vegetables and other Indonesian specialties (how offerings are made each day etc.) the chef was so welcoming and kind, and was very considerate of us, where the market may have seemed a bit overwhelming to some with all the new smells, heat and hustle of it all! But it was great to see and I likely would never have walked into the local market if we hadn’t done it as part of the class.

Then we returned back to the restaurant (all ingredients were pre-prepared and bought so the market trip was purely educational) and worked through elements of multiple dishes under the guidance of the chef. We weren’t working off a recipe or anything like that, which meant we were able to try so many different cooking techniques across multiple dishes. It was very relaxed and we really got to enjoy the process and try food along the way, without feeling the pressure of needing to follow a recipe which is what some cooking classes in Australia can feel like. We got a truly authentic experience.

At the end we got to eat all the dishes made which was a massive feast for the group! We got to meet some lovely people as part of our group as well which made the experience that much better. Huge thank you to everyone at Warung Nia and specifically to Jim for being such a wonderful teacher and making us laugh the whole time! We’ll be recommending this class to all of our friends who come to Bali for their next holiday as a must do experience.

We paid IDR 575,000. For that, we got a tour of one of the Seminyak markets, with all the products explained to us, and samples offered. We then went to Warung Nia, where chef Komang taught us how to prepare the classic herb & spice base for meat and fish. With those basics, and a couple of others, he helped us through the steps of making chicken betutu, pork in sweet soy sauce, satays (traditional and “lilit”, raw papaya salad, fried rice, and mee goring. All of them turned out delicious. Komang made sure everyone had a good go at cooking, and his friendly staff helped finishing off the dishes. We ate the dishes we had cooked, and discovered that not only were they delicious, but that we’d been taught to make a Balinese banquet for 10-12 people. Cook book was included. A fabulous experience, and I’m going again!

My friend and I did the cooking class in the evening as we were looking for something a bit different to do on our holidays and it was honestly an incredible experience. Chef Komang was so knowledgeable and his experience giving cooking classes really shone through. It was a fun way to experience a new culture and the food at the end was delicious. Will be recommending to friends.
