Cooking classes
made for YOU

If you thought Japanese cuisine is complicated or expensive, then think again. With the right guidance you can cook outstanding sushi, ramen, tempura and many other amazing recipes from the Japanese kitchen, freshly made from scratch.


Our signature cooking classes are private sessions where the chef is entirely dedicated to your cooking level and will guide you through everything.


And all for a fraction of the cost of a fancy meal in a restaurant. Grow your skills and eat well!


We're here every step of the way and guarantee you an experience filled with delicious food! Kimura's Kitchen will bring you from zero to hero in our relaxed and informative cooking classes.

What makes our classes special?

  • They are all PRIVATE sessions where you are one-on-one with our chefs! This gives you all the time and freedom to get a full personal experience, where you can ask all the questions you want and cook at your own pace.

  • Unlike other cooking classes or schools where you are with other random people and you are just watching the chef cook along with minimum interaction, our classes are dedicated only to you.
