Coronavirus (COVID-19) roadmap to reopening

Updates 21th, Oct 2020 

A big thank you to you for your ongoing support in what has been a challenging year for all of us. Following Sunday's announcements, we're excited to welcome back our guests from 23 November. Whilst we are currently open for online cooking classes, we are very excited that our in person cooking classes will be reopening in our cooking school in Richmond.

We are taking private group bookings for groups 8-10 people for outdoor cooking classes - dumplingpizza, street food of Vietnam and Japan classes. Ask chef Ha 0408 217 899 for best outdoor cooking classes for your group or just you have any question.  

What's next step we will be doing?

We will continue to do online cooking classes during this time to support families and their friends during isolation. We redesigned our menus so the ingredients can be bought from Coles or Woolworth. Join our 2-hour class ($32) on Saturday or Sunday range of Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese... or our popular dumpling party. We'll send you recipes/videos before the class plus it is kind of fun to cook and connect with friends virtually! Please follow our Facebook and Instagram for updates.  

Our team focuses on keeping our guests to cook healthy meals and encouraging people to buy local products and experiences online. We have courses in Asian Cooking Course, 4-week Kids and Teens Course and 4-week Vegan Asian Cooking for people to join. 

Virtual business and private events

Team building and business events seem to have garnered no mention across this roadmap. We recognise the isolation is a tricky business for friends and families to connect virtually so we start with the Family and Friends Cooking Party and the Virtual Team BuildingNow you can book any of our online class for your group with some customisation for private and business events.
