Bibi was an excellent host and so informed. The food was great and it was interesting to see how it was prepared. The time flew by and I would certainly return.

This was a wonderful experience...

This was a wonderful experience. The family were all so knowledgeable and involved in Bengali food. We had a lovely visit with them and really enjoyed both the lesson and the lunch. Getting to the location was a challenge. Viator may want to consider charging a little extra and including transportation from hotel to site in these tours - or at least make it an additional extra! We almost missed the event due to a very unhelpful, non-English speaking Uber driver.
