    Love the hands-on experience. Hung (The teacher) brought us to local market to buy the ingredients. Great experience and great food!

    My partner and I picked this tour during our recent trip to Hanoi. Unfortunately due to the current Covid 19 outbreak we weren't able to do the market tour but we didn't feel like we missed out at all! We were picked up from our hotel and driven to the villa which was super clean and professional. There were 8 people in the class including us. Mike was a fantastic chef and fantastic teacher. We got to do so much hands on stuff during it and the assistants were there to clean up and finish tasks so we could get on with eating and enjoying it. We made banana flower salad, spring rolls, bun cha soup and egg coffee. We don't have any dietary needs but we had 2 vegans and someone who couldn't eat pork or beef and Mike was really accommodating to those needs on the spot. The place was very clean and the very hygienic. Ingredients were all very fresh and the meals were delicious. They also send you the recipes afterwards which is amazing! We would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to do one. My partner also wanted to mention that it's an open fridge for the class with beer, coke, sprite and water, he thoroughly enjoyed the beers during the class and we were both in epic food comas by the end of it all!!

    Had a great afternoon learning the preparation and cooking of several dishes. It all started with an informative market tour and finished with the group eating what we'd prepared. Chef Hung (Pickle) was also very funny and patient with the group.

    This class is absolutely the best of the best highlight of our family trip to Asia last month. Awesome chef and assistants, the food was fabulous and we all had great time learning the steps to make the local dishes. The best part is that we not only learned about how to cook the dishes but learned so much about the stories behind the dishes, about the culture and local life.

    This is a must for all food and culture lovers. Highly recommend.

    Today we did the Hanoi Streetfood tour. It was a brilliant experiance and we tried some local Food which was really tasteful. Our tour guide Tam was very lovely and told us much about the vietnamnese history and food. We had a great afternoon and highly recommand the tour.

    Excellent cooking class with Nhi. I really enjoyed the trip to the market, and I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty all the food we cooked came out (especially the Pho). I learned a lot, and loved the inclusion of a cookbook at the end. 100% would recommend (and request Nhi if you can - she's a star!)

    Myself, husband, brother and his partner visited Hang in her home a few nights ago to learn to cook Vietnamese food. Their home is in the old quarter steps away from beer corner very easy to find. We felt very welcome by all of Hangs family. We sat down to refreshing Vietnamese drinks and Hang explained to us how they were made. We then started preparing our meal. We made spring rolls, salad, grilled fish. It was all very hands on and fun to learn. We then sat down to a beer and dinner. It was delicious, I especially loved the grilled fish. Hangs mum helped us cook the food also she was very knowledgeable. It was great to meet them all, we had a great night. We look forward to trying to cook the foods again.

    Did the cooking class last week with Chris! Was 3 hours total and it was totally worth it! Chris was a fantastic, answered all my questions and more. The cooking course it’s self was interactive without being too difficult and the end product was delicious! Chris was an awesome chef for us, he was attentive kind and over all just an easy going guy, we left at home in his kitchen. Thank you for having us, we will be back :)

    We had a cooking with Anna, and it was one of our trip's highlights. Highly recommended if you're in Hanoi. We started around 9, taking a bike ride to the cooking location while enjoying views from Old Quarter. Then Anna showed us the variety of dishes we could choose from: 3 entrees + dessert, or 4 entrees. We chose 3 entrees and a dessert. There were plenty of options to choose from, appetizers, different meats, seafood, vegetarian, etc. Anna also had recommendations based on our preferences. Then we left to walk to the market where we bought all the ingredients we would use. We spent the time cooking and preparing all the different dishes and then enjoyed delicious food. The dishes we chose were: bun cha, stuffed eggplant, catfish in caramel sauce, and sticky rice with coconut.

    We had a great time with out guide, Thien (Thomas). The morning started out with buying some of the ingredients from the local market. That in itself was an experience my two teenagers won't be forgetting soon.

    Thien also did a great job introducing us to various noteworthy landmarks, and most importantly, gave us a great perspective on how the people of Hanoi go about their day.

    Then we got to the main event - getting to the cooking classroom.

    That was a lot of fun - I'm the cook in the family so it was eye-opening layering on the various seasoning techniques used in Vietnamese cuisine - especially the preparation of the dipping sauce for Bùn (similar to Phò, but round instead of flat). The making of the various spring rolls was also a treat - that both my teenagers were so engaged is a testament to the quality of the experience.

    Highly recommended.

    We were picked up by Mi from our hotel in the old quarter. She gave us a great talk on the way explaining culture and history. The tour was well run and organised. Mi was an excellent and informative host. The highlight was the bike ride after lunch to the final pagoda. Excellent trip if you want to see some beautiful countryside.

    We had a great time learning how to cook with Hoai in his restaurant! We got to choose three dishes to prepare, we took a trip to the local market where we bought fresh ingredients, then we were assisted in making delicious food, which we enjoyed afterwards ☺️ Great way to spend your morning learning more about local cuisine!

    This was one of the best things I've ever done while traveling. Our guide Wendy was such a delight and brought us to a great selection of places. One of our party had some food restrictions but Wendy made sure she was catered for. We felt very safe on the scooters and getting to zip around Hanoi and see it all from the bike was a really cool experience. Could not recommend this more!
