Great fun and high quality instructions. Looked after very well from the start with an insightful market shop and boat ride to the kitchens. Simple steps that offer challenge for those who want it whilst still being achievable. Memorable experience in all the right ways

I went together with my girlfriend and it was great. We were 8 in the cooking class and enjoyed the market, a boat trip to the thuan tinh island and the cooking class itself. Our guide and chef, Hon, was really great. Has a lot of insights - from cooking tips to local insights at the market. All in all... More

We had an amazing morning at Thuan Tinh Island. Great food (more advanced than I had expected, which was nice) - and great staff! Remember cash - no card! The boat trip was also nice. Can highly recommend this place.

We had a lot of fun and food on the Thuan Tinh Island cooking class which also allowed us to do a number of 'to do activities' in Hoi An like a boat ride or two. The food that we cooked was tasty and easy to make so we will definitely be using the recipes we learnt. Hon who was... More

This was a really professionally run cooking school that still retained a very local feel. It was a great opportunity to be shown round the local market before taking a boatride to their purpose built cooking school. The school was really well set-up and the class organised perfectly. I really enjoyed the experience and we made some tasty food!

This was a brilliant morning. We were picked up in a air conditioned van by our chef Hon and taken to the Hoi An markets where we each had an old fashioned basket to collect our food for the cooking school. The markets were interesting! Vegetables, fruit, fish, live chickens and ducks, fresh meat... the smells, the sights.... it was... More

It can be bamboozling to try and choose a cooking school in Vietnam there seem to be so many on offer, but I can really recommend this one as a terrific experience. We got picked up in a very nice air conditioned bus and spend a fun 40 minutes or so buying goods at the market (one of my favourite... More

We had a great day at the Thuan Tinh Island cooking school. We were picked up at our hotel and met up with the rest of the group near the market, where we shopped for the groceries we would use during our cooking class. Our guide was so great, explaining the ins and outs of Vietnamese ingredients and having us... More

We had an amazing morning on this cooking tour. We were picked up at our hotel in a nice air conditioned van and then went to visit the market to buy all the ingredients for our dishes. The market is very busy but is exciting to see. It is a true local market and was a great experience go see.... More

From the morning pickup by our chef Hon we followed him through the markets selecting fresh produce for our menu. He was very selective and explained some of the fruits, herbs and vegetables we had not seen before. The school caters for vegetarians. The markets provide fresh seafood and meat, everything! We then take a boat ride up the river... More
