My partner and I booked our cooking class the day before with no trouble after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. I'm vegan and my partner is a meat eater, and they were more than happy to accommodate both of us. We were picked up from our hotel by the lovely Duyen, who then accompanied us in a taxi... More

I did enjoy this cooking class and the meals we prepared were tasty. We started the morning with a 'market' tour. This was interesting and our chef did buy us some things to try like duck egg. But we weren't at the market for any real reason because all the food was already at the restaurant... but it was still... More

I highly recommend this for people who have always liked Vietnamese food and wonder how and what goes into it. I learned so much. The guide and cook were extremely friendly and knowledgable. When I first emailed them about the tour they were very prompt in emailing me back (within 10 minutes) and answering my questions. I was impressed with... More

We booked this class prior to leaving Australia and we weren't disappointed! We got picked up from our hotel lobby right on time and were greeted by the lovely Ms Ha. She was very friendly and took care of us right from the start of the day. We took a taxi from our hotel to Blue Butterfly restaurant in the... More

After reading the positive reviews on the site, I was expecting to be immersed in a full Vietnamese cooking experience; wandering down to the local market, buying the produce, preparing the food, and learning, in the process, how to cook a couple of Vietnamese dishes. This was not what happened at all. It started well - the guide, (her name... More

Thank you so much Han, our lovely chef/host at the Blue Butterfly, she showed us through the markets, explained the unheard of veges and fruits, took us back to the restaurant and guided/taught us three fabulous meals. She was very charming, excellent english and had a really happy cheerful/cheeky personality. The four of us and two other people from Malaysia... More

So we decided to take part in their cooking class during our trip to Hanoi. We were greeted by the super friendly Chef Ha and immediately we knew we in the right hands. After a short tour around the wet market we started cooking. I will say this about Chef Ha - she's a keeper. Patient, skilled, speaks proper English.... More

So happy I took a class here. I took the vegetarian cookingclass. when I was booking, I requested to make fresh springrolls instead of fried and they were very flexible. The class starts with a great marketvisit, where you learn and taste lots of things about Vietnamese food. During the cooking class the chef Thinh really took his time, and... More
