Cocktail and Dumpling Making Class


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.

Cocktail and Dumpling Making Class


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. Great that a takeaway container was provided! Would have been good to be able to get the cocktail recipes to take home. All in all a good experience, suits all kinds of groups - date night, friends, work covers all the bases.

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

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!

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!

Cocktail and Dumpling Making Class


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.

Cocktail and Dumpling Making Class


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!

Tanya Leigh  •  Nov 2020

Cocktail and Dumpling Making Class


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.

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

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.

Cocktail making and dumpling perfect event. Teachers and staff were lovely, helpful and entertaining. I had a broken foot and was on my own but they made me feel welcome and everyone who attended was having a great time. I had so many dumplings to take home and was so full after the event as well. Great venue as well. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Dumpling Making Class


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.

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.

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!
