A small group of us spent a most pleasant afternoon here learning Vietnamese cuisine hands-on. The facility is pleasant, staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We were shown how to prepare the dishes and then did the preparation ourselves. Meanwhile we enjoyed free beer. Then we visited a nearby local market, came back and enjoyed the fruits of our labour.

This was a great experience in a well equipped cooking school with a terrific teacher. I often heard from other visitors that the cooking class they attended elsewhere was really just observation. Here we had a great lesson in which we observed preparation and then made each dish ourselves. The kitchen was very well equipped with multiple stations for the... More

I'm generally not a big fan of cooking classes and mostly went along on this one to placate my spouse, but I was very glad that I went. The class kicked off, like many do, with a visit to the local market. Our guide was very informative and capably answered all of the questions of the very inquisitive members of... More

We had specifically planned our Vietnam trip to come back to Hanoi for our booked vegetarian cooking class and after coming down from Sapa to make it to the class the teacher seemed to have no idea what the class was. We walked straight from the venue to the market straight to the pork counter in the market where he... More

What a really amazing and fun thing to do. We were greeted and given local tea whilst our half day street food tour was explained. First we were taken round the meat and veg market next door - which isn't a place for the squeamish BTW. We tried a lot of unusual food but avoided the raw salad/herbs and veg.... More

The Hanoi Cooking Centre was a great learning opportunity. I went to the market guided by Ho. (I'm probably spelling that wrong, very sorry!) He patiently answered all of my "what's that" questions and showed the different market areas for medicinal herbs, western produce, rices, mushrooms, etc. I learned how to tell a quality fish sauce and got some great...

A great cookery school with lovely instructors. We loved it so much we went back for a second class. The BBQ class is particularly good and not one you are likely to find elsewhere. A great find.

Booked the 'Hanoi and the Northern Highlands' class via email with no issues prior to arriving in Vietnam. The class consists of a walking tour through the nearby local markets led by Australian-owner Tracey who was incredibly knowledgable and provided plenty of street food tips. The class was well run with a friendly and approachable young chef, facilities were well-maintained... More

I was excited to see a vegetarian cooking class on offer at this school, as I've visited some great vegan and vegetarian restaurants here in Vietnam, and was eager to pick up a few cooking tips. Unfortunately I wasn't overly impressed with either the quality of the 'class' (which felt more like a demonstration, than an actual lesson on cooking),... More

The Hanoi Cooking Center offers a basic street food tour, which is a walking tour, and by request they will arrange a seafood tour and an "unusual foods" tour. It is led by a chef so you get all the culinary details, and visit some of the famous street food vendors, some of whom have been in the same location... More
