I took several sets of guests here when they visited us in HCMC. They always loved the informative and fun cooking with a professional chef. You can book for going to the local food market and shopping with the chef. This is optional. We took our 9 year old grandson and he loved it. Now he wants to become a... More

Overall it was a great experience and cost around $45 including the 1 hour market tour and the 3 hours class, all ingredients, iced tea and water. Even though we had already visited a market in Hanoi, HCMC’s market is different so it was great to have the Chef walk us through and explain the different ingredients and customs for... More

Chef Khang and his assistants were very professional, courteous, and friendly. My wife and I had a fantastic time learning new tricks. They have diff menus per day so you can go and enjoy everyday if you like. We had only 1 day to spare but it was time and money well spent :) HIGHLY RECOMMEND

I myself am a cookery teacher, so can be quite critical of something I can do myself. However, I loved it. I was greeted at the market by Chef Khang and had a thoroughly informative and engaging tour of the wet market. He was super knowledgeable and enthusiastic. After we went back to the cookery school and prepared our lunch,... More

My wife and 12 year old son did a cooking class in early July and it was a real treat. We ended up being lucky enough to have our own class which was a bonus. We cooked three different courses and sat down to each in between. The process was well explained and we were given a copy of the... More

Chef Khang taught us skills that make food presentation special going way beyond just how to put ingredients together and make Vietnamese food. His instruction made me feel like I was in training to be a chef. Everything was super organized and clear teaching style was appreciated. The location was so beautiful and the staff took care of everything behind... More

Our chef is vastly wiser and better than his youthful age would suggest. He knows the market like the back of his hand. His mastery of local cuisine is vast and his many years in Texas give him great command of the language. Plus he is just very nice. The school is placed centrally in an antique opium den that...
