What an amazing cooking class. Vina and Kimmy made our experience so incredible we will never forget it. From the banana leaf covered fish to the pho, this food is absolutely astonishing. Wish I could come back on a daily basis!

Vina was absolutely incredible today. We had an amazing experience cooking 4 dishes of our choice where we got to visit the local market to buy ingredients. I have severe food allergies and they were so reassuring and accommodating to make every dish suitable for me to eat. The food was authentic and delicious and we came away excited to try cooking these dishes back home. I couldn't recommend this place enough - the highlight of our Vietnam experience so far.

Highly recommend this experience. We felt it was dinner and also a show with Vina as our host. The food was delicious and the company entertaining. It was a fun night and good to learn how some of our favourite vietnamese food is prepared. We left rolling out after how much food we ate and couldn't choose a favourite as everything was amazing. The fact it is a personalised lesson with only your group and the host and you can choose which dishes you want to cook is very appealing. Hopefully we can prepare it at home but I don't think it will be as good without Vinas expertise.
Thankyou!

We had a perfect morning at Gioan’s. Vina explained everything at the market and showed us how to prepare the food.

Everything was very clean and prefectly organised. I think it’s especially great that you can chose out of so many different dishes.

Thank you very much!

Prior to leaving Australia we booked and confirmed a cooking class during our stay in Hoian. We confirmed the menu and as well as advising we had no allergies to any foods,and we would be waiting in the lobby of our hotel at 5.00pm for pick up..
We are unable to comment on the cooking school as we were not picked up as arranged. We contacted the cooking school but were advised it never received our confirmation. This is incorrect as it was in black and white on all our emails to the cooking school.
We received an apology but it was very disappointing particularly as next day it began to rain and virtually overnight the old town flooded. We were then unable to attend another cooking school.
We consider it poor organisation on behalf of the cooking school.

Dear Peter J, We hop you get well. Lets us introduce ourselves. We are Gioan cooking school in hoian Vietnam. We got a terrible review from you in three years ago, you said " gioan cooking is a poor organization". We were so dissopointed at the time. However, we have to say it is not harmful for our business now. In oppsite, it was really useful for us and we did improve our weakness about IT. We just want to let you know that it could be a big big mistake and we did not come it up. Anyway, we hope that if you visit in hoian city town again, we would like to show you about our organization. Thank you and take care. PS: we write this response because our guests who did read your review, and they said it had be a mistake, and they helped us out our weakness Internet technology. So they recommended to us that we should response. It is hard to explain for all, but we are really sorry for that and we hope to not make you hate Hoian Vietnam.

A must do! We choose this cooking class because we could pick what we wanted to cook and secondly because we could do a half day. Plus the rating on TA were great!

We had the best morning with these ladies. They collected us from the Hotel and then we headed to the local food market. Was very interesting to watch them purchase all the ingredients. She also got us to taste lots of fruits at the market. Lots we had not tried on on travels.

We loved that even though there were others in the class we had our own group cooking our own menu. What a lunch. Yummy! We did pretty good! You learn that Vietnamese food is actually very simple it is all about the fresh ingredients.

The ladies both speak fabulous English. They are fun and quick witted. You will love this class. A must do in Hoi An!

We were reccomended Gioan cooking class by friends, and I can agree it is a must do activity for any stay in Hoi An! Being on a tight budget, we opted for the 2 hour cooking class. This proved to be excellent value for our money as we were able to make 3 dishes of choice.

The cooking class was a great experience, and with Vina's clear and informative instructions, we were able to produce some fantastic dishes (Despite a serious lack of any previous experience). Any cooking class with Vina is sure to be great fun, and the 2 hours were filled with smiles and singing all round!

So do yourself a favour and pop in to say hi to Vina at Gioan!

I made enquiries into this cooking class and was asked to come to the shop to discuss. As a reasonable cook in my own right there were some very specific things I wished to learn. I was initially disappointed when they would't allow me to join another class who were cooking 2 out of the 4 things I wished to learn. They insisted that I do a class alone which attracts a higher fee (of course!)

My instructor was very helpful and friendly and took me through that was required. The class is supposed to last 2.5 hours but mine went for 1 hour and 45 minutes and I did feel that she was rushing me a little. When I am working with a recipe I like to take my time and given I paid a higher fee to do my own class I expected that I would be given plenty of time. I felt this was disappointing.

At the end she wanted to sell me their cook book which I wanted to buy however, having a shorter class than what was advertised combined with me paying a higher fee I felt it was a bit unfair.

If you are a reasonable cook this class is not for you, it's very much a beginners class.

We’ve just arrived back from our cooking class and it was fantastic! Ms. Hanh was a brilliant teacher which made creating the dishes very straightforward. There were six in total in our group which was perfect. The food we created was incredible and should be pretty easy to replicate when we’re home. Thoroughly recommended!

When we booked we chose 4 different dishes we wanted to cook. We were picked up in time by a car and taken to the "restaurant". We got recipes for the selected dishes and were shown step by step how to prepare them - do it yourself. The ingredients were very fresh and the resulting dinner was plenty and tasty.
