Great way to experience the markets and local culture and food. Cooked and ate a lot, and I mean a lot, of great authentic dishes. Mrs. T was funny even though she spoke no English! Already practiced our pho making ability at home!

The dishes we made were delicious and the staff was clearly... More

We did this after hearing about it from fellow travellers we had met. It's a perfect day. We loved it. The teacher was excellent and all our food tasted superb. Hoping we can duplicate them at home. Definitely do this!

Classes were extremely professionally run, food was terrific and we are all a lot wiser about Vietnamese... More
