After getting turned around a bit (while addresses are sequential on each side of the street, they don't necessarily line up across the street from each other), we found our destination with about 10 minutes to spare. We checked in at the counter, paid our fee (2.65 million VND, or $118 US), and were then taken down a narrow alley/walkway... More

Fun, informative and delicious way to spend a morning in Hanoi. The market tour led by the owner Tracey was a perfect introduction to Vietnamese culture and food, and gave us a much greater appreciation and understanding of what we were doing during the cooking class. The cooking instructors were also amazing and made the time fly by. This was... More

Starting with a market tour where we bought some of the goodies for our cooking the afternoon progressed to the kitchen where our teacher got us started chopping, slicing and dicing. We were the only two people in the class and it would have bee nicer to have some interaction with others. Regardless, our lovely teacher entertained us with her... More

I took the Vietnamese cooking #class today in @hanoicookingcentre. It was AMAZING and I definitely recommend it. We spent the morning in the market buying the food, then back to the kitchen to do the work. The staff was super sweet and they even taught me how to make green tea with leaves. NOTHING like in America. The menu we... More

It was our last day in Hanoi and we wanted to do something before our transfer to the airport that would be memorable - well what a good choice! The chefs were very informative and you even get a printout of the recipes that you create that day and your own apron! It was a really fun experience and lovely... More

First, do note that everyone else seems to have only the best things to say about HCC's street food tour, so take this review with a pinch of salt. My primary issue is that the price point (USD59) just isn't right, when there are other street food tours being offered in the region of 20+ and 30+ dollars. I signed... More

We booked this class last minute when our flight was cancelled and we had an extra day in Hanoi. We ended up having a private class. My daughters and I gave the class a 5 and my husband said it was a 4, but he does not cook! We started with a trip to the local market where the chef... More

Cooking school located in a old neighborhood in Hanoi. Inside the building the room was modern and professionally outfitted for a cooking school, with six stations for two for hands on cooking in addition to a large cooking area for demonstrations of the recipes. Before beginning to cook the meal of fresh spring rolls, banana blossom salad, and ginger chicken,... More
