This is Nazlina Spice Station

It is at the corner of Campbell and Carnarvon street in front of Campbell Street market. Please refer to Google Map below for directions. Tell taxi drivers, it is opposite Campbell Street market because most of them really DO NOT like to look up for the address. Everyone has a smartphone nowadays. Google map and Facebook can pinpoint our location easily. Nazlina Spice Station, Nazlina's Cooking Class and Penang Cooking Class will point you to the right direction.

Classes are available daily except on Sundays. Meet in front of Campbell Street market at the corner of Campbell Street and Carnarvon Street at 7.30 a.m. If you stay within 10-20 minutes walk to the area of the meeting point, please refer to the map in order to get there on foot. Transfer request to the venue is chargeable. Use UBER for a cheaper rate.

Class approximately lasts for 5 hours. We are going to make a minimum of four items in each session. Sometimes we make five items. Some items are simpler to make, some take longer than others. Nazlina will decide what is appropriate, given the time and resources that we have.


We make 4 to 5 items including dessert per session, at RM225.00 nett per person. I would like to assure you, it is a truly value for money experience. Old copies of Lonely Planet stated the prize to be RM160 nett but that was in 2014 and we only made 3 items during that time.

We do not offer discount. We do however, can personalize your sessions if your group is 12 pax or more for a team building experience.


Telephone number to SMS/WhatsApp your query or reservation including name and your email address to: (+6012-4538167). Those who fail to adhere to this rule will not be entertained.

Attention travellers:

Many people simply send Whatsapp messages at the last minute and have all kinds of demands. Do not have WiFi? Please buy a local SIM card. It is cheap and convenient. Please do not give me such excuses that my email landed in your spam box or you did not see my replies just because you did not have WiFi. That is why we strongly discourage people from booking at the last minute.

Bookings are closed 36 hours for the following morning's class. You may ask after that cut off time, and if you are lucky we are still able to answer it on time. Please use the contact form rather than Whatsapp. Communication through Whatsapp is not meant for a last minute query AND please, please, please, include your name and email address!

Please DO NOT call. I simply cannot answer calls when I hold classes. Besides, by writing a query by email, all details are recorded so that everything will be in black and white.

More questions can be forwarded through the contact form below. Thank you.

By reservation only. Please indicate in the contact form which session you prefer. The menu for Mar-May 2017 are listed below. For future months, they will be announced as the date is nearer.
