Our chef Hung was a great teacher. We had the luxury of a private class and really enjoyed the personal attention. Hung is a very enthusiastic chef and definitely made the class and market visit worthwhile. Everything was well prepared in the restaurant and it was quite special that it was in one of the ancient houses of Hanoi Old... More

Thank you to chef Hung for a great day! We enjoyed our cyclo tour of the old town to buy the vegetables in the market and enjoyed the experience of preparing and cooking our evening meal Kind Regards Ray & Gill

Chef Hung really does a great job with this cooking class from start to finish. First someone met my girlfriend and me at our hotel and helped us get to the restaurant. Although we had gotten quite used to walking around the streets of Hanoi, it can be really overwhelming especially for people visiting for the first time, so this... More

A popular place to visit in Hanoi is the old quarter, and recently around the popular sword lake area on Friday Evening to Sunday, cars and motorbikes have been banned... just outside the no driving area, down a small busy street and if luck you will find this little gem... it's tucked away but the food here is extremely reasonable...

Can't say enough about this class and the food. This would be my number 1 activity in Hanoi of all the things we did! Chef Hung was very entertaining and energetic, AND a good teacher, always prompting us to answer his questions before he told us things, which kept us really engaged. The market tour was perhaps the most fun... More

The cooking class was very memorable and enjoyable. We did it on Christmas Day, and it was the most meaningful Christmas Day we have ever had. The food was fantastic, the teaching was professional. Highly recommended!

A great experience if you want to combine cooking with a market trip, both of which were equally entertaining and educational. Be sure to take pictures while touring through the market as these are some of our favorites - the colors, sounds, and smells were wonderful!The recipes seem to be easy to follow although I haven't had the opportunity to...
