Cooking workshop review by Valentine Maguire

Pina Margiotta Mar 2022

It was a bit difficult to fine Honkus Bar maybe better signage.
Teacher was well organised. It would have been good if he showed us what the packet of pastry looks like as I've never purchased one from the shops. Ingredients were fresh. Teacher walked around and observed and assisted where needed. Explanations and demonstrations on how to make the different shapes was clear.
We waited a fair bit for the dumplings to be cooked, they were delicious when they arrived. It would have been good if they served the dumplings with a salad. If not included in the price we would have been happy to pay for a salad, its nice if you give the customer the option, no one asked us if we wanted something else with our dumplings. Overall a great experience, great teacher, now I need to make them myself again with my family.

Ivan Sanchez Mar 2022

We enjoy so much the experience and the flavours of the food. The people were amazing. It’s true that we hope to find more teaching with some explanations about the dumplings, or the origins, or the recipes with the quantities. But in general a great experience:)

Alaine Burgess Mar 2022

Fun to make the dumplings, great ingredients provided. Slow start to the class we were told to arrive at 1145 but the class didn't start till almost 1230. Got to make plenty of dumplings to share, would recommend.

Rebecca Davis Mar 2022

I went there with my partner with no real expectation however from the time we arrived we were treated as a person and not a number. All the bar staff/waiters are very professional & attentive but most of all very friendly.

The dumpling class was fantastic as we had never made dumplings before these classes are designed for the beginner. The teacher was amazing with taking the time to show us individual the techniques.

Once finished making our dumplings the teacher took us to a beautiful outdoor terrace dining area were we were seated.

The dumplings were served to us steamed, pay fired & deep fried & we were waited on like any paying customer.

All in all I can’t recommend this highly enough to any age group & it was an amazing experience.

Aisling McGann Feb 2022

We all really enjoyed this class - great team bonding event to do! The dumplings were delicious :)

Ken Negri Feb 2022

Teacher and venue were amazing. Once you prepare the dumplings you get a table in the restaurant and the service and staff are just so welcoming and nice. Will likely come back for just the restaurant. Would recommend definitely.

Kristie Kulper Feb 2022

Second time doing the dumpling class, the teach was very slow with starting, during the class and to finish off so it took longer then expected, but the teach was very lovely. Great place, bar tender was great serving cocktails. Food was lovely

Teacher was fantastic, helpful and fun.

Monica Chahoud Nov 2021

We had a great laugh and learnt how to make dumplings… our teacher was great he took the time to show us techniques. We then enjoyed the dumplings with a cocktail … worth the $ we had a great night

Cooking workshop review by Monica Chahoud Sydney

Savannah Reali Nov 2021

All we really learnt was how to fold the dumplings. We didn’t learn about where the dumplings come from, their history, the ingredients or alterations to the recipe. We did make lots of dumplings and I had extra to take home though which was nice. But overall it was very average, not a great atmosphere, and a bit boring. Wouldn’t recommend.

Clara Gomes Nov 2021

This class was great fun, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun activity and learning a new skill.

Margaret Keelty Nov 2021

Fun and yum. Keiran was great, he explained and demonstrated really clearly and he was so patient with us. We made so many dumplings and then ate them - Yum. A really nice day out, well organised and good value. Thank you

Jennifer Tang Nov 2021

Kieran was friendly and took the time to coach us to dumping success. Honkas staff were all very polite and obliging. The venue had a fantastic atmosphere were groups had their own space. Dumplings were cooked in three ways to perfection.

Dumpling Making Class review by Jennifer Tang Sydney

Stephanie Jones Nov 2021

We had fun at this dumpling making class. The main focus was on how to fold the dumplings, ingredients come pre chopped and the dumplings are cooked for you in the kitchen. The teacher Kieran was really friendly and knowledgeable. After the class you get your dumplings to eat in the restaurant area.

Dumpling Making Class review by Stephanie Jones

Richard Arkell Nov 2021

We really enjoyed our dumpling making class. The staff at Honkas were great, we learnt different ways to make dumplings and then we moved to a table in the dining areas and our dumplings were cooked in the restaurant kitchen.
It was awesome.

Simone Ligori Oct 2021

Class was fun and enjoyed by all. The teacher was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was nice to complete the class inside and then sit outside to enjoy our cooked dumplings with some drinks.

Diana Lynch Jun 2021

Our teacher showed great patience and kept cool calm & collected while helping some of our younger guests make dumplings.Well mannered and polite

Candida Jun 2021

Fantastic experience I had, most certainly was fun and I now can make dumplings great teacher as well

Gaewyn Evans Jun 2021

Making Dumplings was a great learning experience and fun. The teacher was entertaining and interactive with us. He really made our evening interesting. The dumplings were cooked for us in three different ways and we got to taste and enjoy our handy work and take home the left overs. This is a fun night and well worth doing.

Niamh Peren May 2021

I was under the impression that the class was about learning to make dumplings. Unfortunately not. Pre bought dumpling wrappers from Harris Farms / Woolworths were heralded as the best, and used here. Ingredients were pre-chopped too so the class didn’t learn much by means of preparation. Just to mix it all together. Then the class didn’t learn how to cook the dumplings as the venue wouldn’t allow the class into the kitchen due to insurance regulations.

Catherine Wood May 2021

The dumpling making class was excellent, the head chef was really great at explaining the different folds of dumplings. The venue was a little cold as the large door was open, however it was also a cold night. The end results were also delicious and cooked wonderfully.

Rose Jones May 2021

Was a great class. You got to sit to make the dumplings, which is a bonus compared to other classes where you stand for 3 hours! It was hard to hear the teacher, but that's because he had to wear a mask so hopefully soon that won't be the case. The dumplings were DELICIOUS, and would happily do it all again. Easy to do, learned a lot, and eating them certainly was a highlight!

Matilda Roberts May 2021

Great, friendly and helpful teacher. Good quality ingredients with generous servings- made so many dumplings! Such a fun class!

Jacqui Carvalho May 2021

We loved this class! Fun location, we enjoyed being able to order cocktails while making the dumplings. By the end of the class we all felt confident in folding the 3 styles of dumplings and will hopefully try to recreate them at home soon. Note you don't actually cook the dumplings (this is done by the kitchen) but we were more than happy to just eat our creation at the end. Great night out.

Jodie Handley May 2021

Really enjoyed the class. We made more dumplings than we could eat! Really enjoyed the Teacher and the venue. Would definitely recommend to others!

Alison Luong Apr 2021

The teachers were so great and definitely showed us a thing or two about dumplings There was so many dumplings at the end of it that that we couldn’t eat anymore !

The teachers ran the class so smoothly with 20 people and everyone had a great time !

Highly recommend for a hens event !

Liv Kwiatkowski Apr 2021

The venue was an awesome set up, open plan with lots of room for a big-team activity. The dumpling instructor was lots of fun and allowed for even the most novice cooks to enjoy the dumpling making process. The cocktails on arrival were divine and I’d highly recommend them. We also tried the chicken katsu which was delicious. Definitely an awesome team bonding experience!

Good value for money. More dumplings than you can eat. Good activity for any occasion: dates, friends, work, events etc. Incredibly friendly staff. Vibe was good. Will come again. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks!

Cooking workshop review by Nishy

Ashley Cameron Apr 2021

This is a fun activity for a birthday party. The teacher was good. All ingredients prepped and you learned how to fold your dumplings. It would be good if we had the recipe (I.e. quantity of ingredients). But overall it was a fun thing to do and good value for money (heaps of dumplings!)

Kylee Lavelle Apr 2021

We had a Very helpful teacher there to teach us new things and yummy food.

Jessica Beckett Apr 2021

Fun! We were expecting to cook the dumplings but it was so great it didn’t matter

Erny Sujentono Mar 2021

The venue and teacher are good. The class is for very beginner. It will be good if it’s mentioned.

Matthew Hanham Mar 2021

Deedee Lee Mar 2021

It was great! Kieran, our teacher was really helpful and taught us well. The staff at Honkas were all really lovely too. The only thing that could be better was the separation of the veg and meat dumplings. Some of the veg dumpling plates that came out had meat dumplings on them.

Cooking workshop review by Deedee Lee Sydney

Stacey Graham Mar 2021

Super fun experience! Great vibe! Great teacher would highly recommend it to friends and family

Omar Rodriguez Mar 2021

What a great experience. The set up was professional and efficient. Everything was ready to go. I came a little late (sorry) but I was attended to by no less than 3 instructors to get me up to speed. Three different dumpling wrapping styles were covered. I really appreciated working my way up from easiest to hardest. To top it off, I had the pleasure of enjoying the dumplings I made. As did my room mates, as I was able to bring home 2 containers full of dumplings.

Nicole McKenzie Feb 2021

The teacher was great, however we were told that we would be served the dumplings we made and there was some kind of mixup which meant we were served someone else’s dumplings. This was quite disappointing.

Michelle Wahl Feb 2021

Great venue, excellent if you want to do something with a few friends or on a date for a few hours whilst drinking. Would recommend this to friends.

We had a great afternoon on Friday for our corporate Xmas party making yummy dumplings!

Jenn Clifton Feb 2021

Great fun, easy course and educator was very informative in a fun casual setting. Only comment would be to get all to either wash hands or hand sanitise prior to making the delicious dumplings. They really were great!

Isabelle Stransky Feb 2021

A group of colleagues and I took the dumpling making class and thoroughly enjoyed it. We started off inside the venue grouped at smaller tables. We made two lots of dumplings one vegetarian and the other pork based. The ingredients were all chopped and ready for us to mix, the teachers were helpful and clear in their instructions and we learned how to fold the pastry to make 4 different shapes. Our dumpling were then steamed, pan fried and deep fried for us. We were moved to a long communal table where we all got to eat the fruit of our labour. Would definitely recommend this class.

Clare Kitcher Jan 2021

I bought this class for my sons at Christmas. They loved it.
A new skill they are eager to practice and share. We’ll have dumplings regularly from now on.

Marti Kurt Jan 2021

Really fun date night idea. We learnt lots of different ways to fold dumplings and enjoyed them cooked 3 ways

Cooking workshop review by Marti Kurt

Robyn Shuttleworth Jan 2021

The teacher and other chefs were very friendly and helpful. Once we arrived the class was set up in a seperate room and the teacher explained everything. It was a nice venue as we were also able to order drinks whilst we did the class, and all the staff came to check if we needed more drinks etc. We learnt aloft of different dumpling folds Everything was provided and was good quality

Eunice Tam Jan 2021

Such a good experience and a fun date night with my partner. The teachers were so nice and and gave good instructions.

Andrew Stone Oct 2020

I booked the dumpling making class for my mum’s birthday and we had a wonderful time. The staff were helpful and attentive, and the chef was lovely. I have made dumplings many times before, but I learned a few new tricks in this class. Thoroughly recommend!

Frances Debono Aug 2020

Ingredients were good and tasted awesome, teacher was very friendly. Perhaps explaining the method in more detail at the start will make the prepping process more smoother :)

Gerard Melchior Aug 2020

The head chef taking the class was fantastic and helpful, showing us all the proper dumpling making techniques and being friendly throughout. Venue had great vibes and was well maintained. Good value for money, made enough dumplings to feed a family of 6. Great date idea or to get out of the house to do something fun. Would highly recommend.

Lone Martinsen Jul 2020

Fun and easy dumpling class, perfect for beginners. Very friendly teacher and staff. Great value, and fun getting to eat your own dumplings after the class. Recommend doing this with a friend or as a couple, as the whole class don't eat together.

Melissa Abdullah Jun 2020

Class was good, although we didn’t get a recipe for the dumplings as all ingredients were pre measured. The class was a bit packed in too.

Nishi Patel Jun 2020

Could have been organised better but it was fun overall. Learnt new skills which I will try at home.

Lucy Parsons Jun 2020

Yummy food and fun class!
Learnt some fun things, would’ve liked to watch how the dumplings were cooked though!
Overall a good and fun experience.

The class was great, Cindy was an excellent teacher, she was patient and explained each step clearly. It was also a nice surprise to make our own rice paper rolls. The gentleman who introduced us to our teacher was a bit rude though, the way he spoke about the her was a bit degrading Eg. She is soft spoken so we'll turn the music down, and saying she is too quick and we'd have to ask her to show us again, she wasn't too quick and she did a great job of teaching us, he should have highlighted her talents.

Dumpling Making Class review by Harrison Walker

Alicia Styles Feb 2020

Venue was cute and lively, an awesome vibe! The teachers were fantastic also! Kinda wish a couple of drinks were included in the class price but I can also understand why it wasn’t an option. It was a lot of fun!

Luen Samonte Feb 2020

Lovely venue and great atmosphere despite the rainy weather! Instructor was very helpful and we now have new dumpling folding techniques to master. It would have been great if we were able to do the whole cooking process not just the preparation.

Rachel Ruber Feb 2020

The class overall was very fun! Got to meet so many nice people and have a great time.
The set up took a bit of time to get ready, seems like they weren’t prepared by the 5pm start time, but honestly that was the only glitch the whole night.
The teacher was very nice, just a little bit shy to start! But once we got into it she really opened up. Thank you for teaching us so many awesome techniques!
