Went for our anniversary and loved this class!! Chef Vivian and Chef Michi are a lovely couple with a lot of experience and everything they taught us to make was delicious! They had everything prepped and ready to go which streamlined the whole class and the recipes were easy to follow. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking about doing this class. Thank you Chefs!

We had an amazing time with Chefs Michi & Vivian! They were excellent from start to finish, walking us through each step of sushi making and the secrets to perfect tempura! They also catered the menu to our dietary needs & restrictions with such care & detail. In addition, they went above & beyond to make sure we were fully prepared for the class. Their personal touch and expert guidance made for a failure free night of sushi and fun that gave us the tools to make sushi on our own the very next day. Can't wait to take another class with them! Thanks again Michi & Vivian.

Very friendly and recipe was simple yet delicious. Although some parts could have been sped up or more catered to the audience as majority were meat eaters but a lot of time was spent doing vegetarian dish.
