Be a real "chef"! Great set up. Easy to understand, instructor's English is really good. I love visiting the market, so fresh and vivid. One of my favorite parts. Nothing is better than choosing all the ingredients, preparing, cooking all by yourself and finally enjoying it. Really nice and enjoyable. Highly recommended for those who love cooking as well as...

Great place, wonderful staff. The chef and his colleagues know how to make everyone feel comfortable and are all really sweet. The best cooking class un HCMC for sure. At first i thought that it was a little expensive, but it was definitely worth it. I would take another class there any time.

Great way to get introduced to Vietnamese cuisine! We did the afternoon class and really enjoyed it. The instructor was extremely knowledgable, friendly, and engaging (and his English was amazing)! The space is lovely and everything was very well set up and professional. Check the dishes in advance - they seem to run the gambit of difficulty based on what... More

Highly recommend this experience. We opted for a market visit first to collect our ingredients which was very informative & a great way to see the market, then onto out cooking class, preparation & then eating. Our teacher was very patient, explained step by step the recipes & all the cooking was hands on with a very tasty yummy result.... More

At first a special note about the quality of service. Booking is easy and the map to meet the Chef at the market is perfect. The Chef was fun and helpful and his young assistant lovely. My wife and I loved the food that we made that we will definitely cook at home. We learned a lot about some ingredients... More

When enquiring about doing the class, I received a very informative reply within an hour of sending the email. We opted to do the half day gourmet tour. This involves going to the Ben Thanh market to get ingredients before starting the cooking class. There were only 5 people in total in our class, which made it quite personal. Our... More

We took the Saigon Cooking Class by Hoa Tuc combined with a visit to the Ben Tranh market. This was very insightful, Chef Tien showed us many food stuffs we had not seen before. We had a little trouble finding the right market entrance but made it in time - the trip from the market to the restaurant was effortless... More

My husband and I spent a very entertaining morning at Saigon Cooking Class learning how to make a range of dishes. The teacher was great, funny and full of little stories - the dishes we prepared and devoured very tasty. Each participant received a little booklet with all recipes afterwards, we have already cooked one of the dishes at home!... More
