My two teenage kids and I took a class at Paon and really enjoyed the experience. The menu is traditional and delicious. Pushma and her team are all lovely and super accomodating, having a special selection of vegetarian goodies for my teenage daughter. The morning was well planned out and easy to follow. At $35 AUD it represents excellence value.... More

Yum The juices and smoothies are also excellent; & between us; we tried most of them! We shared deserts - vegan... More

The cooking class was fantastic. I was the only vegan and we cooked in pairs (I paired with my partner) and every pair cooked their own food. You cook from the beginning to the end and they're careful for no cross contamination, which I really appreciated. One of the dishes was steamed and they asked me if I wanted to... More

This should be the number 1 thing for you to do while in Ubud. The tour around the market was informative and the food was amazing. I booked late on the night before the tour and they were able to collect me from my villa and return me after the class. It is amazing to learn how some of this... More

I have visited Paon Bali for the 2nd time in 2 years and would always return again!! When the team noticed I have been there before, they were so sweet to add an additional dish the menu by my choice! The sweetest thing! I still loved everything about this course. The family, the details, the sweet team and of course... More

Pupsa was very prompt to answer her emails which I very much appreciated (I book everything last minute). Her family and staff were all very charming. I liked that we go directly to her home to cook as you also get to see what a family compound looks like. I also enjoyed her sense of humour. The food we cooked... More

I was backpacking solo through SE Asia and thought it might be weird going to a cooking class by myself, but I had heard wonderful things about Paon's so I had to go for it. It ended up being one of the best experiences and the food was AMAZING! Everything was so well organized and everyone was incredibly friendly! You... More

My boyfriend and I went to the afternoon cooking class with our 8month old baby yesterday. The food was delicious and preparation was light hearted and fun, Bub loved it and the staff were lovely with him. The best thing we have done on this trip.
