Chef Shinya was truly amazing! He went above and beyond both of our expectations. He was well-prepared and very knowledgable. I chose the ramen class as a surprise for my husband on our honeymoon, and we both enjoyed the class and learned so much. Chef Shinya has an impressive amount of experience, was a great teacher, and made us feel comfortable! I told him in advance that the cooking class was for our honeymoon, and he thoughtfully gave us a handmade card and a gift. Also, Chef Shinya and I both share a love for coffee; he told us about his brewing machine that he was developing, and he gave us a free prototype. Chef Shinya is incredibly generous, thoughtful, and knowledgeable -- we really appreciated every detail! If we did a cooking class again in the Seattle area, my husband and I would certainly return to Chef Shinya!

It was an excellent experience - thank you Chef Shinya for your hospitality and for going the extra mile to prepare the dessert for my fiancé’s birthday.
