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...

We learned how to make 3 lovely Vietnamese dishes in 3 hours. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place is clean and spacious. We had a great afternoon.

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.

This was a really well run class. Chef Hoa did a great job talking us through the ingredients and showing us how to prepare the various dishes. And it was fun being able to try the food once it was cooked. It was enjoyable and educational and we can't wait to try making the dishes at home. The only minor... More

It was an amazing and fun experience. We learnt about the different ingredients such as rice papers, herbs, fish sauce and techniques to make three lovely dishes. Highly recommended.

We paid 39$ each for a 3h (2pm-5pm) cooking class that teaches you to prepare 3 dishes. The stuff is friendly but tries to sell you anything (drinks, souvenirs) for outrageous prices. The cook speaks English well and slowly, it's useful for those whose first language is not English. She is also stunning and my girlfriend got a bit jealous... More

I highly recommend this superb cooking class. I went solo as my husband does not like cooking and lots of other solo participants & couples. Email correspondence was prompt with good English and easy directions to follow. The chef & sous chef spoke good English & were friendly and approachable with easy to follow cooking instructions. I thoroughly enjoyed every... More
