We took 2 cooking classes while in Saigon and this was by far the better class. The other cooking class was with a different company and while not bad, certainly did not match this class. We met the chef at the Ben Thanh market and did some shopping for our class. We had signed up for the 1/2 day Gourmet... More

Me and a friend chose to do the half day cooking class and it was one of the best things we've done in Vietnam! Our teacher was so informative, we tried loads of new ingredients and came away with a wealth of knowledge about Vietnamese cooking! The food was amazing, so tasty, and we had great fun whilst doing it!... More

Chef Khang is knowledgeable, has a good sense of humour and can convey all the essentials in record time to ensure that each of us was successful in our cooking endeavour. We learned about herbs, fruits, meats and spices at the market and then how to cook and assemble three wonderful dishes at the newly renovated and now fully air... More

Had a brilliant time here. Came to afternoon session on a Tuesday and made fresh spring rolls, bbq chicken and mango salad, and lotus flower rice. Loads of fun and they give you the recipes to take away. Don't have lunch beforehand if you go to the afternoon session! You won't need it. Highly recommended.

Our chef spoke excellent English (lived several years in Texas), was a culinary professional, and a good guy. He took us on a tour of the local market to buy the ingredients for the class. He knew quite a bit and answered all of our questions. Then we cooked some excellent typical Vietnamese dishes. He was a good teacher and... More

The chef explained a lot about the food market & ingredients! It is very relaxing. And, it is suitable for people who have multilevel cooking skills. The chef speaks good English. The food is so delicious.

We began the day at the markets where our guide who was very well spoken led us through the markets to get our ingredients. On the way we stopped in each section where he shared information and stories on the produce we were seeing and the Vietnamese way of life. We then got a big taxi back to the restaurant... More

I highly recommend this cooking class! You can just attend the class, but I would also go to the market prior to the class where the chef meets the group and shows you many interesting things in the market - great photo op. I learned as much at the market as I did in the class. You get to eat... More

The half-day gourmet tour was a fun experience well-suited for us, because it was held in English and spoke to the person who knows very little about cooking and even less about Vietnamese cuisine yet eager to learn first-hand about both. And all cooking prep work was done for us, so it’s a super-easy, low-stress activity. There were about 14... More
