This was our second time back. We loved the Indian class so much with Dylan that we booked the dumpling course too. He is a fabulous, patient and very knowledgeable instructor that makes you feel comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend these courses. It is a great experience.

I really enjoyed participating in Dylan’s class today. Super impressed with his knowledge about other cultures. And the Indian was divine!

Dylan was a fabulous teacher with a great knowledge of Indian cookery. We really enjoyed our hands on learning experience and the food was delicious. I am looking forward to attending further classes at Otao cooking school

I’ve done many many cooking classes – this one of the best. Great instruction, friendly relaxed atmosphere, helpful and extremely informative. Really took the “fear” out of Indian cooking – chef was amazing and I’ve book another cuisine with him. Oh the food was amazing 
Thanks so much
