Experience our authentic Asian cooking classes

Join one of our Asian cooking classes where our inspirational Chef will show you how to balance contrasting flavours to create a truly tasty dish.

Fragrant, spicy and flavoursome, Thai food has quickly become one of Australia’s favourite cuisines. With exotic ingredients like chillies, lime, lemongrass and coconut milk, it’s easy to see why.  For those a little more curious of our Asian cousins, we have introduced a hint of Japan, Malaysia and China to our menu.

With individual gas burners, you create and eat your very own dishes which you can enjoy with new friends and a glass of Thai Singha beer or wine. We also keep our 100% hands on classes small (8 maximum), so that everyone gets full attention.
