Cocktail and Dumpling Making Class review by Sarah

Lauren Andrade Jun 2021


The teacher (Kieran, I believe) was absolutely lovely, hilarious, so welcoming and patient. The drinks we made were delicious (one more sweet fruit lychee and the over very fresh and would not be my usual go to but I loved it!) And the dumplings were plentiful! Cooked so well and I had a great time learning the 4 different folding styles that they showed us. A super enjoyable, beginners friendly class, highly recommend!

Pavitra Vobilisetty Jun 2021


The class was great! The teacher was fun and enthusiastic. It did feel like some people were paid more attention than the others. And I was expecting to make the batter for the dumplings ourselves too. So I was a little disappointed that we were handed out pre-cut sheets.

Madeline Maric Jun 2021


My friend and I did the class as a birthday gift and we had an excellent time. It was a fun and casual vibe with a great teaching environment. The teacher was very enthusiastic and we really learned a lot.

We did this for a friends birthday and had the best time. Hamilton was really easy to work with to organise a session for our group, and did a great job of designing a menu that appealed to all. Kieran was a delightful teacher, he was very patient with us and had us laughing the whole time. The cocktails were DELICIOUS and we were stuffed with dumplings by the time we finished. Great venue, great food, great staff. 10/10 would recommend.

Keiran was so engaging and helpful, he guided us every step of the way and made it so fun! He was so lovely to learn from! The venue was trendy with a great vibe and perfectly set-up for our group.

Great value for money with everything provided from the bottle of gin and vodka to the top quality dumpling ingredients, we definitely feel like we received a lot more dumplings which filled us up well past dinner time!

Mariela Hardwick May 2021


The class was great! Keiran was lovely. We made friends with the couple beside us and Keiran was quick to accommodate us to sit together and socialise with them. Something different and enjoyable for our date. Honkers is a great little place. Heaps of delicious Dumplings. Would recommend this experience.

Good class and nice teacher!
Was a good intro into dumpling making, I think I would have liked to make the dough (not you use pre-made dough).
Only negative was that the venue was quite cold!

Chloe Bekiaris May 2021


This was an awesome experience. My sister and I bought it as a mother's day gift. After making and drinking two delicious cocktails, our creative juices were certainly flowing. We made a plethora of dumplings under the instruction of our hilarious instructor. Each group got their own table, which I really liked. Then we were able to try the creations we made 3 ways: steamed, deep fried and pan fried. A delicious experience from start to finish! Thank you!

Friendly and AMAZING teachers Very tolerant and accepting of everyone.
Intimidating venue at first, and late to start which called for even more nerves, but TOTALLY worth the experience, friends, food and drinks. Amazing food, despite the fact that IIIII made it LOL.
Very much worth the pay, but don't turn up early and order early drinks, or drinks after that's how the getcha!
Taking home friends, lotsa dumplings, reiterated cocktail skills and a new attitude towards the world.
Overall, thankyou.

Jake Quade Apr 2021


Class started promptly, we made great cocktails (not too sweet - I'm usually a whisky drinker but the lychee martinis were nice and subtle).

The dumpling making process was well explained, the instructor was friendly, helpful and patient. It all concluded with a great lunch of our own cocktails. It's a steal for the price, great for couples.

Rachael Andrews Apr 2021


My friend and I had a great time. Easy location to get to via public transport. Staff are fun and engaging, very helpful.

Kieran the teacher was incredible! We had such a fun time. The cocktails were fabulous and dumplings delicious. Can’t recommend this class enough.

Rowena Hallows Apr 2021


Kieran was a fun,lively skilled teacher in this stylish venue . Mixology skills were trickier than we realised but now we feel confident to make the two delicious cocktails. We made two different types of dumplings and Kieran taught us three different ‘folds’ brilliantly! We had a giggle all the way through even though there was only us and another couple. The venue then cooked the dumplings three ways and provided yummy sauces vinegar etc to have with them and takeaway containers as we made ample. It was fantastic value and great funwe will be back!

This was a fun experience and the drinks were nice - totally opposite tastes so my friend liked the first one we made while I preferred the second!

The dumpling recipes were great and I liked that they cooked them for us using three different methods so that we could have a nice dinner with a drink by the end of it - very nice touch!

A smaller class or an extra teacher would be an added bonus :)

Thank you team!

our teacher i think Keiran? was fantastic, he was very patient with us and spent time answering questions. he also made it alot of fun. the whole set up was great i could not fault anything on the day. i purchased this experience for everyone with us for a Christmas gift and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
we also received great service from all the other staff on that day and had a few laughs with the bar staff.

Cecile Kroes Mar 2021


Nice venue. Fun teacher. Only downside I would say is that with the dumpling making it was too focussed on how to fold the dumpling not much else about making and cooking the dumplings.

It was a great way to spend a birthday celebration, as we got to drink the 2 cocktails we we taught to make and eat the dumplings. So it ended up being fun and good value. And a much better celebration than just sitting around a table eating dinner for a birthday.

Katherine Compagnoni Feb 2021


Awesome class experience teaching the secrets to making picture worthy dumplings and delicious cocktails. Would highly recommend.

Robert Bird Feb 2021


Fantastic idea for a date night.
Enthusiastic teacher with a small class size.
Plenty of ability to just do your own thing but support is available when required.
Do not eat a large lunch if you're doing an earlier class, but they will let you take away any left over Dumplings.
Best value class in Sydney

Alyssa Ritchie Feb 2021


The teacher had great energy and was a lot of fun. The venue had great atmosphere. Delicious food and cocktail choices. They accommodated our vegan diet. Well spaced to accomodate physical distancing. Would highly recommend this class to anyone.

Venue was easy to locate - short walking distance from the station. Instructor was friendly and explained everything slowly and clearly. We learnt the tools involved in making cocktails, made two house cocktails and learnt 3 types of dumpling folds/made lots of dumplings! (Vegetable/Pork). Tips on both cocktail making and dumpling folding/making on was also provided which was very helpful.

Was a fun experience, cocktails were yum and making the dumplings was fun. Both the chef & Barman were great and there were plenty of dumplings to eat at the end.

All in all a good experience, suits all kinds of groups - date night, friends, work covers all the bases.

Rebecca McIntosh Dec 2020


The teacher was wonderful.
The cocktails we made were unique and delicious.
It was a lot of fun making the dumplings and they steam, pan fry and deep fry them so you can try them the three different ways at the end.
We made so many we came home with dumplings for the next day.
Highly recommend great experience!

Samudit Rupasinghe Dec 2020


Teacher brought great energy, was organise and had everything ready to go. Process was well explained and easy to follow. Good ingredients and outcome tasted great only downside was that we now had ~60 dumplings between 2 people.

Overall really good experience!

Amanda Schafer Dec 2020


Great value for money, easy to follow along and cool location with fun staff. Cocktail class combined with dumpling making was entertaining but not too difficult. Great date night or girls night out. Plenty of dumplings to take home too! The only small idea we would have loved to take a recipe card home for the cocktails and/or dumplings.

Jessica Takchi Dec 2020


This class was great! Not only was it very organised but the staff were all lovely and fun. The set up for the dumplings made the process very efficient. Having many staff/chefs come up to us and show us different ways to fold them made the experience more enjoyable. Our teacher for the cocktails was great, relaxed and outgoing. Although it was a bit pricey, everything we received made it worth it. A very fun experience!

Salve Pedrosa Nov 2020

The staff were great and we had a really fun time.
They probably need to find a better way to label the dumplings and package half of them, too many to eat. It would have been nice if a reasonable serve was presented for us, rather than pile them high.
But I do recommend this experience.

Liz Barrett Nov 2020


Amazing class, Hamilton makes the class fun and is clearly passionate about food and beverage. Value for money, so much food - we had a great time, would highly recommend.

Chelcie Pike Oct 2020


We loved the venue, great spot in Kings Cross. Super convenient location and the staff were so lovely and accommodating. The class itself was so fun. The cocktail making was easy to follow and the teacher was lovely. The dumpling making was super fun too. We really enjoyed being hands on. The chef was such a lovely man who really took the time to show you how to make them properly and even when they turned out terrible he would have a laugh and show you again. We stayed for hours after the class and enjoyed the atmosphere and the dumplings we made. They were delicious! We chatted for hours with the friends we made from the class. Honestly we would do this class again in a heartbeat. Such a fun way to meet people and just have a laugh. Thanks again

Cocktail making and dumpling perfect event. Teachers and staff were lovely, helpful and entertaining.
