I did the cooking class during a recent solo trip to Nha Trang. Dat is a great host and very accommodating. We visited the local market to pick up our produce, before heading back to his garden kitchen to cook some amazing food!
Day also took us to a local bakery, rice noodle factory, vegetable garden and coffee shop some got a real taste of the area!

I learnt so much during the cooking class, and feel like I can make Vietnamese food at home now! I have always wanted to learn more about cooking Vietnamese cuisine and this was a well-worth trip, I am so pleased that I did it!

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something memorable to do whilst in the area!

Best thing we did in our time in Nha Trang. Dat is a wonderfully warm and knowledgeable tour guide. We visited the market, we shopped, we learned about fresh ingredients, we drank coffee, we tried fresh bread, we saw a beautiful kitchen garden, we picked fruit in Dat's wonderful home garden, we cooked and we ATE amazing food. I can't recommend this enough to anyone who comes to Nha Trang and is interested in food. Please do it!

Great way to learn about cooking and Vietnamese life from Chef Dat. The tour and instruction were both very informative and the class being held in the garden at Chef Dat's home added to the experience. Definitely recommend as good value and fun.

This was amazing. A pick up was arranged from the hotel (we missed this but it was our fault) and were were taken by comfortable car into a country area. We saw how table mats were made at a weavers, saw how rice paper was made into noodles, were provided with a delicious, refreshing kumquat drink and were given information everywhere we went.

At the market, after selecting our own choice of food, we bought the produce we needed, then drove to a secluded, beautiful place in which to hold our course.

Dat had helpers (friends) to do our clearing up, so all we had to do was to learn how to prepare and cook the food...and eat it of course. It was a perfect environment for our activity .

Dat's English was really good so was easy for the Korean girls on our course to understand. We're English, so of course we had no problem. His knowledge of cookery was extensive, but it was a bonus that he had a vast knowledge of the country and customs.

Well worth it for anyone who want to experience Vietnamese cuisine and to have a guided tour of the countryside as a bonus.

I travel very widely and cooking is a passion. I’ve been to cookery lessons in many places... from rick stein and Raymond blanc to back street house kitchens in Thailand where I’ve asked to watch..
Chef Dat and his tour have been accurately described by others that have loved it. For me it was fantastic. I had great answers to any questions. I was the only native English speaker in a group with Korean guests, we were joking and having a great time while cooking and eating by the end.. (chef St is multi lingual!) By the end I had seen lots, asked lots and been inspired by chef dat. My next dinner guests in the uk are going to be as happy I did this as I am! If you are a keen amateur/developing professional chef you’ll pick up on things that will stay with you forever. If you’re a novice, it’ll be an amazing day and make you realise you can cook some of the best tasting food in the world too! The rest of the tour is a fantastic cultural experience too...! Could you tell the difference between basil/sweet basil/mint/in a market full of so many other smells... I challenge you!! You’ll love it and it’ll remove you from the beach for an am/pm...
Enjoy!

Chef Dat was amazing. He gave us an authentic view of Vietnamese culture while teaching us how to prepare our lunch for the day. I learned so much and was impressed with his good English, organization and knowledge. Of course the the food was delicious and it was fun preparing it all. This tour is a must if you are visiting Nha Trang!

I love to cook and Vietnamese food is one of my favorites to eat- so Chef Dat’s class was one of the highlights for me. It was absolutely wonderful. Dat is an incredible person, his English is excellent and he made everything so perfect for us.

I loved the visit to the local open market.

His cooking school is in a covered, outdoor kitchen. Absolutely lovely. I’ve been to many cooking classes when I travel and this one was in my top three.

The end meal we ate together was so delicious. Loved the spring rolls.

For sure put this on your list to do in Nha Trang if you enjoy cooking or want to experience local culture.

If you guys come to Nha Trang you MUST take Chef Dat’s cookie class. This was by FAR the most amazing part of my trip. His knowledge (English is fantastic) of history and the culture was great. We went in to the local market to purchase our food and then out to his kitchen where we made the most amazing, authentic dishes.

I cannot day enough how great this tour and “class” was.

If you come to Nha Trang you MUST do this tour!!

Firstly many thanks to Chef Dat.
Pick up&drop off service from the city was perfect on time, and we started the tour with comfortable car. ^^
His tour course included sightseeing around real local (where his village). You never get this experience if you aren’t book his tour.
Small market has huge energy also really fresh, and all ingredients for class bought from that market.
We can choose not only the menu also the ingredients too!
The class is running in clean and peaceful area.
All member can join into all process of the cooking so highly recommend to family, friends also solo too!
All dishes are perfect, fresh, delicious. The only thing what you need to bring is, big mouth to eat :)
Thanks!!!!!!!!
차량으로 약 30분 가량 떨어진 시외 진정한 로컬에서 즐길수 있는 투어입니다!
쉬운 영어로 진행해주시니 아이들과 반나절가량 체험하기 딱!좋아요. 혼자 가시는분들도 조인투어로 재미있게 참여하실 수 있으니 진짜 추천드립니다!!!
반쎄오는 시내 맛집보다 맛있고 깨끗하구 고수는 알아서 빼주시니 꼭 체험해보세요:))

Hi Seo Hyang, I have been trying my best to give my guests a smile when they join my cooking class and I believe that you are coming to Vietnam - Nha Trang, you all would like to experience the local culture, the real life of the local people as what they do to earn a living, their shelter, where they shop ingredients for their meals every day.... These things never happen in the front, it is at the back! Thank you so much for your support! I wish you all the best Regards Chef Dat

From the moment Chef Dat picked us up from our hotel and took us on our culinary adventure the day just got better and better! Such a friendly, kind and humble man and also a very talented cook. On the way to his kitchen we had coffee at a local cafe , viewed and participated in some grass weaving, visited a rice noodle family business and went shopping for the ingredients for our dishes at the local market..which was a great experience. The preparation and cooking of the 3 dishes our group chose to make was done with fun and careful precision led by the master chef Dat! Thank you for a wonderful experience and can’t wait to try and reproduce the meals at home! Highly recommend this tour!
