My husband and I are falling in love with Vietnamese foods that go beyond just the spring rolls, pho and banh mi that are popular back home. Even though we had already visited the market it was great to have the chef walk us through and explain the different foods and customs for shopping. Our class was full of fun... More

We did the Saigon Cooking Class in the morning. We opted to skip the market tour and only did the actual cooking class. This was a most excellent class and the highlight of our time in Saigon. The class is held in a bright and airy room above Hoa Tuc restaurant and was well set up. We each had our... More

What a great way to spend a morning in Ho Chi Min City. We had a party of 5 including my two daughters and their father who is a Master Chef (we kept that quite). We started off in the market and had all the food types explained to us and then off to the cooking school. We cooked Sour... More

I was not sure what to expect or how the class would be held. My daughter and I found it very easy to find the staff from the cooking school at the Ben Thanh market. The instructions that were emailed to us when we booked were excellent. Their communication via email is very prompt. The market tour is excellent, the... More

Great market tour of Ben Thanh and morning cooking class. This was a wonderful way to finish up our holiday in Vietnam. Chef Khang's knowledge, instructive approach and sense of humour made the tour and class very enjoyable. The class was held in a lovely airy and open space. The class size of 12 people was perfect and there was... More

We contacted Saigon Cooking Class to see if they could accommodate 9 persons with a week's notice. Not only were they able to do this, but they organised us a private class with market tour and let us choose our own menu. Hung was our private chef and he was absolutely fantastic! Being led through the food section of Ben... More

Great half day cooking class. We went to the Ben Thanh market with Chef Khang and learned a lot about the ingredients we would be using before heading back to the cooking studio above Hua Tuc restaurant. We learned how to prepare three dishes and received the recipes. Chef Khang and the staff were very helpful to ensure everything came... More

Took a standard cooking class with some friends on a Saturday afternoon. Made some fresh spring rolls, beef salad, and stir-fried squid. Everything was very well prepared and organized. Chef Khang spoke fantastic English and explained all of the ingredients and methods used in preparation. The only mistake we made was eating lunch before the 2:00pm class! Otherwise, I would...

I had great fun joining this class. I learned, laughed, and ate a lot. I'd say it was more of an eating class than cooking -- we mainly prepped and put together dishes that required little cooking. What we did cook -- crispy noodles -- was an experience in itself! I would definitely come back to learn more.
