I booked this course in low season as I was desperate to do a cooking course during my stay in Goa. For 2200 rupees I would of rethought my decision but the experience was worth it because of the fantastic lady that taught us. I learnt so much about indian food as a whole and some really great ways of cooking using different ingredients. Thank you so much for the experience.

My husband and I really enjoyed this cooking experience. We were lucky as there was only the two of us in the class. We learnt lots of tricks and came away with fabulous recipes to try at home. The lady and her daughter were so friendly with lots of stories about Goan lifestyle and as a teacher they filled me in about local schools too. We helped in the preparation and cooking and the end result was yummy! It is not a big kitchen restaurant with fancy appliances but rather well suited to its surroundings of a more traditional experience. Thank you and would recommend it to others! Ps. Go with an empty tummy as the amount of food made is huge!

We attended this "course" but all it was was watching a lady cook for 3hours. It was so disappointing as I am an enthusiastic cook and really wanted to learn how to cook Goan food. For two people it cost £50, it was a complete waste of money and would not recommend this demonstration.

Took a cooking class and was shown around the hotel as well. The hotel is a world heritage site. Beautiful but has all the modern facilities with a touch of 5 star class. Will definitely stay there next time. Cooking class was fun and our teacher Jane is very patient and warm. Totally recommend!
