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...

My wife and I were on our honeymoon and were recommended to go to the Restaurant for dinner. We had such a great time we decided to go to the cooking class. Chef Khang, the team, the venue and the food was amazing. Highly recommend to anyone unfamiliar but passionate about Vietnamese cuisine.

It has been my 3rd cooking lesson with Saigon Cooking Class. As an expat I’m visiting this place when my friends visit me. As the past experience, they were the same lovely staff, amazing brilliant teacher and delicious food. To resume this cookery is a good value. My friends coming along with me loved the atmosphere of the class and... More

Our half day experience was great. It started by shopping for ingredients with the chef at the wet market . We then made it back by cab to the cooking class for proper action. We went to Ben Thanh market on our own the day before but going back there with the Chef was way more fulfilling and a completely... More

We met at the market and the chef tools is around showing us all sorts of seafood, fresh water food, veges, spices all sorts! Then we got a taxi... More

My wife and I have chosen the Street Food Secrets tour with Chef Hung. We enjoyed every single minute spent with him! We discovered many ingredients and tasted so much street food delicacies. The only problem was to finish to eat all! Hung have been very patient and explained carefully all we have seen on the tour. The food sellers... More

I find the best memories of my travels include the tastes and smells of the country I am visiting. During the class we had the opportunity of sampling the fragrant herbs and flavours so typically Vietnamese. The instructor spoke English well and was friendly. Our group included a Japanese chef who was sent by his company to learn Vietnamese cooking... More
