We are a wife-and-husband team running a small shop called Oriental Food in North London. Our little shop sells cooking ingredients from China, Japan and Korea – as well as other Asian countries!

As the shop is not big enough to be a one-stop shopping destination, we like to curate the food and ingredients we sell and focus on introducing only the ingredients we love to the local community.

As we both have a passion for cooking and sharing our love of food with others, we started to cook our own dishes to sell in our shop. If customers like the dish, we love showing them the ingredients that have been used from our shop!

As the dishes got increasingly popular, we started to sell freshly prepared Bentos and even started doing local delivery (find us on UberEats and Deliveroo).

More and more people came to us to ask how we cook our dishes and that's how our fun and friendly cooking classes and tasting experiences were born! Come along and let us share with you our authentic cooking techniques as well as modern culinary trends. That's right, you can make the perfect Chinese, Japanese and Korean food too!

I had the most wonderful time I highly recommend and will definitely be back. They were so knowledgable and were amazing teachers. Can't say enough good things about this experience. So much fun

Patricia Plummer Apr 2022


I did this class with the Bubble Tea class. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learnt such a lot. Very welcoming and answered all my questions. Lots of folklore and history included.

Célia Amon Apr 2022


Great class offered as present to my 10 years old. She thoroughly enjoyed it and is keen to make dumpling for the whole family on her own. Simon and his wife explained the steps really well and and have been assisting all along to help us "mastering" the technique. We ate the food at the end and it was just delicious.

Sharon Savage Mar 2022


I was very fortunate to be the only person attending this classso I had two private tutors! Simon & Hanna were very friendly and so informative!
I learnt a great skill today and I can't wait to go home and make dumplings myself!
Really great that you can buy the ingredients and equipment in the store as well. Wonderful afternoon out. I'm keen to try more classes with Simon & Hanna.

Rose Mar 2022


Cute shop made restaurant made classroom, class of 4 so plenty of space so watch Hanna without crowding. Both Simon and Hanna are knowledgeable, warm and friendly people. Patient teachers, attentive and encouraging. My friend and I went to learn to make dumplings and wonton and we learnt exactly that! Doses and recipe sent directly for future reference. We cooked and we ate the food which was abundant and delicious! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We will be back for the Bao dumplings and Buns! The shop all sells all the essentials for you to take home which I find is excellent to get started right away! We loved the atmosphere and the teaching style!

This was an amazing workshop. Simon and Hanna were very good teachers. They didn't only show us how to make dumplings and wontons but also told us about the history of these dishes. We made some with meat and some with vegetable filling and they all tasted delicious. Can't wait to try making dumplings at home!

Hanna and Simon were very patient and thorough. The lesson was well thought out and everyone in my group ( 2 adults and 2 teens) left feeling that they could successfully prepare the recipes at home. Reflecting the Year of the Tiger, we made special tiger-striped dumplings using two different colours of dough. I would highly recommend this class: it was both fun and productive.

Krisztina Nagy Feb 2022


Lovely and patient hosts who not only helped with preparing the food but even gave us a glimpse of Japanese and Chinese cuisine.

We had a great time and would return to one of their other classes.

Stella Buren Feb 2022


Simon was absolutely lovely. He had lots of knowledge and was fun to learn with.

Booked for a dumpling class.

Everything was set up neatly. The teachers were very friendly, funny and helpful. We chatted a lot and had a great time.

During the lesson, my dumplings were falling apart but they both helped me fix the specific issues. Now, I have a better understanding on what to do.

Absolutely looking forward to booking our next class! Would 100% recommend and even bring friends.

Beth Isaac Oct 2021


We had the loveliest time cooking dumplings in our class! They were delicious and I was able to take some home as well (which I thoroughly enjoyed the next day!).

Absolutely loved this class! Simon and his wife were so friendly, welcoming and patient with their teaching. The venue was clean and spacious, and easy to access. I was there with five friends and we all had so much fun and learned fantastic new dumpling making skills. Make sure you don't eat before you go, as you'll make a lot of food!
Next time I'm visiting London, I will definitely be back to try making some bao buns!

Timka Fryer Oct 2021


I was lucky enough to book on to the dumpling/wonton class whilst visiting London for work. Simon and Han Yan were welcoming, friendly and most importantly, patient. My first dumplings were terrible but they had definitely improved by the end and they were delicious! I would recommend this class to any dumpling fan and can't wait to recreate them for my family when I get home.

I had a great time at Simon’s class - they were personable and knowledgable (about the food and about the history of it too). The class was very hands on and we got to enjoy it at the end too! Would highly recommend.

We had such a fun couple of hours and feel pretty happy with our new dumpling skills! We really enjoyed hearing about the history of the dishes too. Thanks Simon and Hannah!
