I truly enjoyed the nearly four hours I spent with Tinh, learning about Vietnamese food and cooking. When you first arrive, Tinh will offer you coffee or tea. Then he'll take you around the nearby markets to explore the fruits & vegetables, plus the more exotic items to be found. Then it's back to the restaurant, where you learn (hands-on)... More

This was a last minute activity that we squashed into the end of our trip as a filler and hopefully something fun to do- and it definitely was!! Tinh- our cheery and cheeky guide, picked us up from our hotel and took us to the restaraunt where we received a beautiful coffee before heading out to the market. The market... More

We decided to book this class the day before we left and were able to get in. Tinh picked us up from our hotel at the scheduled time and we took a taxi to the Blue Butterfly restaurant for the start of our class. The entire drive (5-10 minutes) he asked us all types of questions about us and told... More

Mr. Tinh was our guide for this cooking class and market tour. The tour was the highlight of the day, as the cooking class fell a bit flat with only 3 dishes being offered to cook (and they all used the same ingredients...). USD$35 to make 3 savory dishes is a little on the steep side. If they added a... More

My boyfriend and I took this cooking course today and had an amazing experience. We were picked up at the hotel by a woman and she paid for the taxi. Our guide Tinh and our chef were both very engaging and professional. We were in the morning class and there was only 4 students including us. We had a very... More

A very nice and fun cookingclass. The chef is great and the guide is also very nice. The tour around the market is very specials. Finally you can ask all your food questions to a local! The dishes you'll learn to cook are very tasty. Definately great knowlegde to take home.

Our guide Mr.Tinh, was great! He picked us up from our hotel and immediately started engaging with us about our lives,and how long we had been in Vietnam. He is very personable and has a witty sense of humor, 😊. We made it to the class located in ( old quarters) and had a nice cup of green tea. Once... More

Hi I'm an Australian that was attracted to Vietnam because of the food so went today to this amazing experience of leaning some cooking skills. I don't normally get involved although I recommend anyone not only wanting to learn some cooking skills but to learn about local ingredients and to at the end have a huge meal of what you... More

We enjoyed a cookery class with Tinh on the morning on Tuesday 16th December. After being collected from the hotel, we went to the market where Tinh showed us all the different ingredients you can buy & let us try some. This is our first time travelling in Asia & we found it really interesting to see & try fresh... More
