This class was extremely well organised and the communication after initial booking was very informative. Chef Dylan was very accomplished, friendly and welcoming. The produce supplied was really fresh and the food we made was delicious! I now have the confidence to attempt some Japanese food at home. Thank you for an excellent experience.

KSMJ . Jan 2021

I attended the Japanese Cooking Masterclass at Otao Kitchen as a single participant and found the experience to be very enjoyable.

The class time took approximately 3 hours and working in pairs, we prepared Makizushi-sushi rolls, okonomiyaki and ramen noodles. We then enjoyed eating what we ate with a drink.

The instructor, Chef Dylan was very knowledgeable and ran a good class. I feel confident that I will be able to recreate the dishes prepared during the class in my own kitchen. I definitely plan to attend another class in the future at Otao kitchen.

Joel Jackson - Feb 2023

Hello team, thank you firstly for a wonderful opportunity to learn so much in such a short period of time. The class was laid out exceptionally well and we moved with efficiency, care and detail through so many dishes - I was quite amazed. Our teachers were direct, ready for questions and so wonderfully helpful. The style of the lessons were open, cohesive and user friendly.

The venue was incredibly clean, well maintained and prepared and the atmosphere with a little background music, lighting and joviality was fantastic. Thank you! If anything, I was the only one in the class who printed my menu and brought it into class to make notes as we went along and because of how many dishes we made I found it to be extremely helpful in arranging my thoughts and keeping track of what we had created and what were the tidbits we were learning. But all in all, a fantastic experience I would recommend in a heartbeat! Thank you
