My husband and I took the cooking class, and both of us enjoyed it a lot. The cooking school provided a free pick up from your hotel. Depending on how far it is from your hotel, the drive could be somewhere from 1 hour to 2 hours. The vehicle is quite comfortable. Bringing some snacks with you in case you... More

Our tour leader, Hoa, had perfect English. She took us through the market in a logical, informative, interesting way, and I loved her notes about how her Mum uses some foods. When my friend became unwell (unrelated to the tour), Hoa responded in a professional and caring way. I was sorry to leave the tour, but will return soon to... More

We (grandparents, parents and a teenager son) participated in a walking tour with Saigon Cooking Class. Hoa, our tour leader is a fantastic person: she speaks very good English, knows a lot about the town and the different dishes, has a great sense of humour and is very cheerful. The thing I liked the best, beyond the variety of places... More

This class is really well done. I'd recommend doing the optional market tour beforehand for a guided experience through the market and interesting insights on the ingredients. Our Chef Ngoc spoke fantastic English and was witty and charming, in addition to be knowledgeable and capable. The setting for the cooking class is quite nice and clean and the service is... More

Thumbs up! Had some free time all day until my evening flight after a business trip. Signed up for their cooking class and was blown away!!! Super professional and clean. Ms.Nguyen and chef were awesome at responding quickly and promptly and sending perfect directions. This was literally a 5-10 min walk down the street from the Asiana Intercontinental. We made...

Paid about 45USD for a 3-hour cooking lesson, produced and ate 3 dishes (so that was lunch :D). It was really fun - we were lucky and got a very small group, just 3 customers and one chef/instructor, but that was probably just lucky (there were ten people in the group after us). It's definitely kinda pricey, but it was... More

We were met at our hotel by the delightful Chef Hoa who organised a cab to the food markets in District 3. The tour was informative and really enjoyable providing tastes of a variety of Vietnamese food and an excellent overview of the markets and key ingredients. Hoa gave us a fabulous insight into Vietnamese culture with hilarious anecdotes about... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this class. Chef Hoa took us through Ben Tahn market and tought us about the different ingredients, and how they can be used for. After picking a few ingredients for the dishes about to be made, we went back to class by taxi. All the ingredients were ready for us, but we still had... More

Chef Ngoc was amazing with her tour of the markets, and the cooking class was informative, fun, and produced fantastic food. Please come and visit our cafe when you next visit New Zealand.
