This was so great. I took my husband, son and DiL, we all learned how to make sushi and where to buy the freshest ingredients. The food was delicious! We went really hungry and left very full. Also, he worked around my hubby's allergies. Thanks again Chef

This was a blast! It was definitely cozy, just 2 couples and Chef Pao. He was very good at teaching us how to master the art of making sushi. He mastered it, we didn’t do too bad!! Would recommend for sure.
