It was a great experience! I took the sushi class and it was amazing! Had plenty of sushi to take home and I feel quite prepared to do it at alone at home! Love that it is a 3-course meal I learned and ate rather than just rolling sushi as well ^___^

Chef Ivan and Niko were wonderful! The food was amazing. I totally forgot that someone in our group was a vegetarian but Chef Ivan improvised to perfection.
