Simon and Hanna's bubble tea making class was great! I went with my 2 daughter's (aged 12 and 14) who LOVE bubble tea and they were so amazed that they could make something themselves that they thought was delicious. Both Simon and Hanna were full of information and stories and although we had not booked a private class, as it was just the 3 of us it felt like a really special private session. Thanks so much Simon and Hanna - I love that you have made such a wonderful business sharing your love of cooking and creating. Highly recommend this to all x

Rachel Parks Szymborska Feb 2024


Fantastic morning making Chinese pancakes with Hannah and Simon at their cookery school in Tufnell Park. They were an absolute delight and so knowledgeable on the history of food in China and more widely in south east Asia. The pancakes were absolutely delicious and we shall definitely return to try other classes - I especially want to make the crispy chilli, and it would be helpful to know how to make the dreaded Tofu tasty!

We went for my boyfriend’s birthday and loved every second of it. Simon and Hanna were great teachers and very helpful. The venue was quiet and cozy, with only one other couple working alongside us. Simon and Hanna provided all the materials needed for us to get started. We were also greeted with a handcrafted bubble cocktail each - which was a lovely extra option. We got to make and try a great selection of buns that we enjoyed tasting after the class. Overall, the experience was exceptional and we would recommend this class to anyone. This was our first time going to a cooking class and we look forward to seeing what other classes they offer!

Hanna and Simon provided such exceptional service as soon as stepped into the building. They offered us tea and a place to sit whilst providing us clean aprons and gloves. The experience was surreal, something we have never done before and every bit of the way they both helped as well as explained the process of sushi making. Not only that, he explained in detail why we use specific items. I would highly recommend booking with these two lovely people and I hope to do another session again in the near future.

Thank you Simon and Hanna!

Cristal Jan 2024


I loved the class and learned how to make vegan Ma Po tofu, stir fry tofu with mushrooms, soup and tofu dessert soup.
Hanna is very kind , the recipes were easy and not over complicated which is great.
I got to eat there and bring the rest home.
I will definitely book again for another vegan class and recommend to others.
The price is very reasonable and is much better do the cooking class in person to get some motivation.

Great cooking experiment, highly recommend it.
Hanna and Simon are lovely and explain everything with a lot of detail and fun. They also provide everything you need from the ingredients to the jars for you to then take everything you prepared back home. Also, as I'm pregnant they made sure I had a comfortable seat and helped me cut the veggies and massage them so I wasn't too tired.

The venue was very clean and tidy. I went home with 5 different types of fermented veggies :D

Aaliyah Dec 2023


I found this class by accident after having booked a birthday surprise elsewhere which got cancelled. It left me searching for a replacement gift for my partner at the last minute.
I wasn't sure if this class would be that professional, since it was based in a little shop rather than a large scale kitchen.
Since Hannah and Simon were very responsive to all of my queries, and even catered to my gluten free dietary requirements, I had a good vibe the place.
I decided to go for the private class, as I could choose a custom date and time for the Birthday surprise.
The venue was very easy to find and it looked really eye catching and colourful on the outside. I think it must have had some refurbishments since it looked more modern than it appears on Google Maps.
Upon arrival we were welcomed into the class by Simon. He was very witty and enthusiastic.
I was surprised how it looked on the inside in comparisson to what I imagined. It was much more spacious, lovely and clean and full of character.
My partner and I recently did a pottery making class, so it was nice that Simon showed us some of his pottery work before we got started on the class.
I assumed that we would get stuck right in to making food, but we had an insight into the history of Sushi and all the different types of rice.
We learnt so much from the class, and not just the practical side.
It was great to see how passionate Simon was about his teaching and different types of food.
He really made the day a special one and throughout the whole class Simon was entertaining as well as knowledgable.
We would certainly come back again for other classes.

Thank you very much, Aaliyah, for the wonderful review!

We are thrilled to hear that you and your partner had a great time with us.
We did a lot art work with the posters outside the shop. It is Hanna's talent and passions. Inside shop is Simon's work built the long table to hold the classes and all other fixtures. Very glad you like the cosy and light atomesphere we purposely created.

It is our pleasure to having you on the special day for you and your partner. Glad you enjoyed the whole class including the sushi making and the history behind them.

Very big thank you for the lovely video you edited. Definitely will suggest ClassBento to allow posting videos in reviews. We will share it on our social media for now to share with future customers.

I made few bubble cocktails and a Japanese souffle cheesecake with Hanna and Simon. Time simply flew by and the outcomes were amazing. I'm not much of a cocktail expert or a baker to begin with. But they'll teach you some terrific tricks in terms of presentation and taste. Go for it if you live close by.

Teacher's response

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Sindhuja.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the drinks as well as the cake. They are the best combination to treat yourself. Therefore we designed the add-ons in this way. Certainly you spot it spontaneously.

Marcea Decker Dec 2023


I gifted a private cooking lesson (Chinese Vegan Class with Aubergine) to my partner for his birthday - it was a delightful and fun way to celebrate and learn something new together. Hanna & Simon were very knowledgable, kind, funny, and very welcoming to us from the second we walked in! We learned some basic knife skills to properly prepare the dish, learned in depth about the ingredients used, as well as the dish's history. Plus - what we made was delicious! I'd highly recommend any of Simon & Hanna's classes to anyone!

My girlfriend and I tried out a sushi cooking class with Simon and Hanna and it was a pretty cool experience! The chefs were laid-back and made the whole thing easy to follow and very enjoyable!

Got hands-on with making sushi rolls and tempura, and it was more fun than we expected. The ingredients were fresh and everything was clean. We then ate most of it and there was enough left to fill a tupperware to bring home. We now feel like we can make sushi without messing it up too badly :D

Totally recommended as a birthday gift or just for a nice experience.

Georgia Mancey Dec 2023


I bought this experience for my partner and I for his birthday and we both had an amazing time.
Simon and Hanna were fantastic teachers and very knowledgeable about the types of buns we were making and the history of different cooking techniques etc.
Our class was on a Monday so we ended up having a private class for just the two of us & had a great time learning techniques of how to make and cook the buns. They taught us about the different ingredients and why they are used, and also emailed us a full recipe after the class, along with pictures of us making, cooking and eating the buns (which were really really tasty and filling!)
We are planning to come back for a different class in the new year, it was a great experience all round and I would highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys eating or making Asian food.

Teacher's response

Thank you, Georgia, for your wonderful review!

This class was amazing! I took my mum for her birthday. Communication was amazing as I had a few questions before I booked. The day was amazing. There was a little raffle at the start where we won some of their homemade pickle that we got to try when we were eating our dumplings. The teachers helped us so much with little things we needed to do when wrapping. I would highly recommend this class! It was worth the 2.5 hour drive. Thank you Simon and Hanna ☺️

Really friendly and very informative. They both explained clearly and demonstrated what we needed to do. They let us do and try everything. Really lovely experience and I would heartily recommend. Good value for what was a 1 to 1 experience.

This is a very interesting class.
We are new to the pickled veg world. Simon's class gave us lots of ideas. Every vegetable can be pickled. We learned to make three most popular pickles. On top of that, we tasted many different ones Simon made himself. And they are available to purchase as well.

Very eager to try the ones we made ourselves. Hope they will be same delicious as Simon made.

Sandy Adams Oct 2023


We had a wonderful time with Hanna and Simon.
We had very nice tea with their handmade snacks. The pork mooncake is the best I ever had before. Bring the best memory from China.

The charcoal baked oolong tea is the best among the three types of tea we tasted. The jasmin green tea is also very refreshing. Simon showed us how they baked and roasted the tea leaves themselves. It opened up our mind. We can actually add flavours to the tea bought from shops. Cannot wait to try it at home as well.

Very relax and enjoy the tasting experience. Strongly recommend to all tea lovers.

A very delicious tea tasting. In fact, it is well exceeded our expectation.
We love Chinese tea very much and have been to many tea tastings in London. This is the true gem.

Hanna prepared 3 different types of tea for us. Explained the origin, process methods and the history about them. Each tea served with hand brew and hand made snacks. The crispy flower desserts are the top crown jewel. Very beautiful and very delicious. We want to come back to learn to make them.

The nuts snacks and snow-flake nougat, Simon made for us, are also very nice. He shared his recipe with us as well. We bought some after the class as the simple recipe requires a lot time to make.

Highly recommend, for the tea, for the handmade snacks and their enthusiasm.

Big thanks to Simon and Hanna again for another wonderful, delicious and informative cooking class.

One of the best team outings we’ve done in a while! Simon and Hanna’s passion, skill and enthusiasm for what they do really made the whole event. We learned to make three types of dumpling which we enjoyed eating at the end with provided condiments - the crispy chilli oil is the bomb!

A very tasty cocktail making class.
The ideas are very interesting. We made three drinks which are very beautiful and tasty.

This is an amazing cooking class.
Plenty to learn and to eat as well.
We learnt the secrets behind this popular dessert in China. It is great we can make them at home just before the Mid-autumn festival. We bought some molds used in the class so we can make more different patterns at home.
Very comfortable shop with only two of us. We had plenty time to learn and make our own mooncakes. We ate some and took the rest home.
Cannot recommend it enough to everyone who loves this dessert.

This class was a great experience and the girls really enjoyed learning how to make the buns from scratch, first the dough then the fillings then the steaming or pan frying. Hanna, the teacher was first class, kind and welcoming but above all very patient which with teenagers is a real plus point for Hanna, thank you.
We made and cooked two sizes of buns and then we were able to eat them with Hanna's homemade pickles kimchi and radish (you can buy to take home too) which were excellent.
The location is a little out of town, near Archway, but easy to find and there are 4 hour parking bays close by too. The classes are held in a professional catering kitchen, very well equipped and respecting all hygiene rules. We were provided with aprons and all the ingredients to follow the class.

Jasmin Moreau Sep 2023


This is a wonderful experience with Hanna. She is very nice and patient with us. Our cooking skill probably below average. Hanna taugh us very well. She demonstrates first and let us practice with her instructions.

The tomato and egg dish is very surprised. It looks nice and tastes good too. Never had anything like that before. However Hanna says it is the most common dish in China.

The time passed very quick. We managed to cook 4 dishes and had very full belly after eating them all. We will definitely be back for more classes.

Teacher's response

Thank you very much, Jasmin, for your wonderful review!

We are so glad to hear that you had a great time with Hanna during your cooking class. She is indeed a patient and kind instructor, always willing to go the extra mile for her students. We're thrilled that she was able to teach you well and that you enjoyed practicing the recipes with her guidance.

The tomato and egg dish is indeed a classic Chinese dish, and we're happy that you found it surprising and delicious. It's always exciting to try new flavors and dishes from different cuisines.

We're also glad to hear that the time passed quickly and that you were able to cook four dishes during the class. Having a full belly and enjoying the fruits of your labour is always a satisfying feeling. We look forward to welcoming you back for more classes in the future.

This is a very wonderful cooking class. Simon opened up our mind how to cook mushrooms. The dishes are common not complicated to cook. However the taste are great. Plus the presentation Simon guided us with. Made the dishes outstanding.
Simon's knife skill is amazing too. We are looking forward to practice more to catch up with him in another class.
The class is really encouraging us to cook more at home. We realised the fun behind cooking our own dishes.

Recommend the class to everyone who needs inspiration in cooking. We will be back soon to learn more dishes.

Fong Sep 2023


Very good cooking class with Hanna and Simon.
We learnt three different types of buns, from wrapping to cooking. Even how to eat them are also worth to learn.
Hanna's skill is very amazing. We probably need to practice many more to level up with her. Still proud with the buns we made.
Cannot recommend enough and definitely will book more classes with the lovely couple.

This is a truly amazing cooking class.
We learnt to make flower-shape steamed dumpling. The taste and the looking says it all. This is an luxury Dim Sum. Requires skills and patience to make.
We are pleased the results although not good as Hanna and Simon made. We will practice more at home.
Definitely a wonderful cooking class to recommend to our friends.

Peter Woodhead Sep 2023


I attended Simon's Mochi class before. This should be an advanced class. It has four layers to wrap. We started very mess but managed well at the end. Happy to have perfect ones made by ourselves.
Very nice cooking class in a clean and air-conditioned shop. Very nice tea served in the class and we bought some tea leaves after the class. Simon told us they toasted the leaves themselves as well. They also sell nice pickles they made.

100% recommend the class to every one. We will take their other classes soon.

Teacher's response

So pleased I can make the running Custard filling by myself now.
It is the most difficult one I learnt since I make Chinese desserts more than 10 years ago.
Hanna guided us step by step very clearly. We love the taste. It is not too sweet as bought from shops.
Definitely will make again at home and definitely will be back to attend other cooking classes.

Teacher's response

Very good cooking class with delicious food at the end. We managed to make this delicate snack now. It is very expensive to buy it in London with private made. Now we can make them at home. With Simon's recipe, it tastes much better than anything we bought before.
