We got the funny program to learn how to cook Pho in Vietnam. Yummy Vietnamese style. We were interested in prepared before making Pho: herbs, rice noodle, beef or chicken...thanks to chef Dun. We promise to make it at home for our family.

My husband and I did a lot of research before we chose a cooking class. In the end we decided to take the "Hanoi and the Northern highlands" cooking class at the old Hanoi cooking center. The class cost $59 a person and included wine and a visit to the market. The tour starts with a tour of a small... More

This review is for 2 things: the restaurant of the Hanoi Cooking Center and the Food from Hanoi and Northern Vietnam cooking class. First, the restaurant. If it is too hot eat upstairs where there is AC. The decor is lovely and the service is impeccable. It is a serene place to enjoy some lovely Vietnamese and International dishes. They... More

There were 6 of us who went on the tour. The tour was fun, we sampled 4 places for small eats and ended the tour in a coffee shop. We had thought that we would be shown more places and dishes. The tour lasted about 4 hours with a lot of chatting time. The charge was per head, which was... More

If you're looking for great street food, the Hanoi Cooking Center 'Street Eats' tour is an excellent choice. Our guide, Y, was very knowledgeable about various types of foods and how to prepare them. He took us to 5 or 6 different locations to try various traditional vietnamese dishes. He was very flexible and always offered us choices (pork, beef... More

My wife and I cook a lot - together. But never Vietnamese. So we did this half day cooking school to learn the basics. Starts with a market walk, then back to the kitchen to prepare 3 dishes, then we ate our creations. They were surprisingly fantastic! The whole class goes from 9.00 - 1.00 then lunch. USD$55 / head.... More

Good food and nice ambience if you don't mind the heat that is. So better go for diner than lunch.

We picked this one because it suited our schedule (did it on about 90 minutes' notice). Cost was $40. It was just the two of us, and we were in a corner of the restaurant. We had two menu options, but in the end, we had a mix of the two (not sure how certain items weren't available). The market... More
