Like most tours we started at the market which was a great intro into understanding Vietnamese food and then we cooked three dishes back at the restaurant. The end result was great and... More

During the cooking class we prepared 3 dishes. Preparing... More

We went along to Tinh's cooking class on the recommendation or our hotel and trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. The trip to the market, tasting the foods, the class and the feast were all well executed and lots of fun. Our class had just 4 so we asked lots of questions and it was hands on cooking. Tinh was...

Follow the advice of the other reviewers and take this class! It's fun and entertaining. Traveling solo, Mr. Tinh created an atmosphere that allowed me to have a good time with the other people in the group. There's nothing else I can add as I would just be repeating everything that has already been said. So just do it and... More

What a great experience! We started our day at the local market with our guide Tinh. He showed us around trying delicious local fruits and even offered to try the duck embryo ( I was not brave enough). Tinh explained how the Vietnamese use herbs for medicinal issues and herbal remedies. We saw fresh fruits, vegetables meats, seafood, frogs, snails... More

We have just completed an afternoon out with this cooking school and had an absolutely amazing time. It by far exceeded any expectation we had of what we were paying for. We got taken to a local food market that gave us a really unique authentic insight into how the local collect and prepare their food. We got to sample... More

Myself and 2 friends did this cooking class recently and had a blast. Tihn is super knowledgable and friendly, the market tour is something other cooking classes don't offer and it was super enjoyable. We are even Facebook friends now! Loved this and would definitely recommend
