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

My boyfriend and I had some spare time to fill in so we decided to do this cooking class based on other good reviews. Such a good decision! It was awesome! 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

I have done many cooking classes while travelling in many countries and this was by far the very best I have ever done with a Smart and funny Chef that speaks amazing English! We did the market walk and shopping which I highly recommend as you learn about all the foods are and how they eat them, it was super... More

At a fried's suggestion I booked both Cook School and Street Food Tour as an introduction to Vietnamese food and culture. What a splendid decision. Right from my first email the efficiency and prompt helpfulness of Ms My was reassuring. I met Chef Khang as arranged and his knowledge on the market tour was impressive. The Cook School itself was... More

What an amazingly fun experience to have - cooking abroad. The Saigon Cooking Class was really organised and very informative about the culture and the cuisine. The tour through the market was interesting. Back at their premises housed in an old colonial building, it was clean and tastefully arranged. The menu was delicious and they even catered to my vegetarian... More

We had a good time. Our chef, Khang, was very professional and a good mentor. He also can work very good with kids. The school has a nice atmosphere and is clean. Qick and very good communication via email.

In love with vietnamese cuisine I booked a morning class with market visit. This was a fun experience not falling short of my expectations. Returning to HCM I went back to SCC to book a street food tour. Past the hassle of slightly modifying the standard plan (being alone but willing to pay extra for the tour) it was a... More
