We had a fantastic time at The Blue Butterfly cooking class. The trip to the market to start with was very interesting and it was great getting to try all the different ingredients along the way. Our guide Tinh was very knowledgeable and made the class a lot of fun! The food we made was delicious, the best spring rolls... More

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

I went with my wife and since first moment, Tinh made our lessons a great time. We started going to the local market where Tinh showed and explained us almost everything we passed by. We tried vegetables, fruits, meats, etc. After a while in market and once we had our ingredients we went back to restaurant to start class. Everything... 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

I had a weekend to myself in Hanoi and decided to go and do a cooking class. After looking at the options online, this one seemed to be cheaper than most (35 USDpp) but still had good reviews. I actually didn't realise you needed to book, and just turned up for 9am. They were very good and were happy to... More

We stopped in Hanoi as part of a silver wedding anniversary vacation. Our kids booked us a surprise class. Tinh met us at our hotel and took us to the course. We were lucky to be sharing the experience with a great young couple. It started with a market tour, learning from the knowledgable Tinh, and tasting all kinds of... More

My friend and I had an excellent time attending the Blue Butterfly cooking course with Tinh. The morning spent at the market was really interesting and was an opportunity to sample local cuisine and fresh foods. The actual class was really fun and informative, the staff were lovely, and Tinh's knowledge and expertise was great. Really great value for $35,... More

My partner and I are visiting Hanoi on our honeymoon and were booked into Tinh's cooking class as a wedding gift from close friends. What an amazing day we had! We were so lucky to happen to be the only ones in the class this afternoon so we had a very special experience. As others have mentioned, the market experience... More
