Much better then expected. No elements were pre-made so we learnt how to do every step using stuff we prob already have at home. The teacher was friendly and welcoming and the venue I felt was the perfect size and setting. They were generous with ingredients for those wanting to try different things. Would recommend.

Really enjoyed the class! I gifted it to two people who I attended with, who also loved it! The class size was small, which meant it was easy to ask our teacher, Dylan, questions. The class was very hands on and it was great to eat the food we made throughout the class. Would definitely attend again for a different cooking class ☺️

The teacher was fantastic (I feel rude that I don’t remember his name). He was very memorable though, he had a passion for Mexican food and also knew the chemistry behind food. He had a lovely manner.

Chinese Cooking Class



Such an incredible class that packed in a lot of delicious authentic dishes. Dylan was fantastic at talking us through the how and why for each step so make sure we took home traditional lesson and ended up with a delicious dishes to enjoy. The only suggestion I have for the ingredients for each meal to be better segregated, many participants got confused over what the quantities of garlic and ginger were for! Didn't impact the dishes, just created some frustration.

Good class and Dylan was good but we felt a little more introduction of the other attendees would have been good as it felt like we were a bit divided.

Great class and great value for money. You definitely need to prepare all ingredients in advance so you can keep up. It's also important to start shopping for all ingredients early as they can be tricky to find.

our team got together for our End of year Christmas break up and did a dumpling making course. The venue was great and in a central location, our teacher Dylan was fantastic, didn't go too fast and made sure everyone was on track and most of all the food was amazing. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to get their teams together or even a group of friends.

This class was great! Being the first of hopefully many, this was also my first time taking a class via zoom and overall cooking class. I think it really happened being sent a video and recipe prior, just so I know exactly what I’m getting myself into. Great job everyone! Hope to take more classes soon.

Had a great time learning to cook Thai dishes. The skill level was pitched well. Not too hard. The ingredients were fragrant and the teacher unpretentious and helpful. There were good options for different dietary preferences. It was fun and I felt very satisfied with the result. enjoyed eating our delicious creations and brought leftovers home which was a bonus. Time well spent. I would certainly take another Master class at Otao Kitchen.
