I had a blast at this cooking class. Ha, our teacher, led the four of us through the local market (great for taking pictures) and explained Vietnamese vegetables and foods that were for sale there. We walked through a local market that sold hardware and gift items, and then onto the class. Class was held in a local restaurant. We... More

We loved the whole experience! Chef Ha made it interesting, informative and fun! Only 3 of us in the group which was a bonus. She took us to the local Vietnamese markets to buy the ingredients. What an eye opener to us foreigners.....so different from our boring old supermarkets! Chef Ha was so knowledgeable about the local produce. She even... More

They came to my hotel on time as arranged ( their email communication was excellent). I waited in the Blue Butterfly restaurant for the others. We were then taken to the market- we cooked in their sister restaurant. There was only 3 of us, due to 2 others cancelling on the 5pm class which was good as it meant it... More

My wife and I had a great time in--what turned out to be a private--cooking class with Chef Han. First, she arrived at our hotel and took us to the restaurant, where we waited--briefly--for two other participants. When they didn't show, we got a private tour of the outdoor markets. Chef Han answered questions, bought some of the ingredients, and... More

We had an amazing time with Nhu who showed us around at the markeds letting us try all kinds of different food. We went back to the restaurant for cooking where they had made a big table with food and our private chef! Was sooo much fun!!! They are all so sweet and welcoming. Well worth it! We're doing it...

We had such a good time learning how to make traditional dishes with the Blue Butterfly staff. My girlfriend and I ended up having a private session, which we did not anticipate, but appreciated. Our host, Duyen, guided us through the local market where we purchased ingredients, and went above and beyond by letting us sample other interesting foods that... More

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
