The morning started with a fun shopping trip in the produce market used by restaurants. I wanted to avoid pork and shellfish. The chef was very accommodating, knowledgeable and fun. All of the food we prepared and ate was delicious. I'd definitely encourage anyone who likes to cook-- and eat-- to take this class.

Ordered the hotpot for lunch, huge quantity of fresh food; seafood, meat, veg, sauces and our charming waitress cooked it all to perfection as we watched.

In the short 5 days we were in Hanoi (and Sepa), our Cooking Class was near the top in experiences. Located in Old Town of Hanoi (we also stayed there),everything from the hospitality and instruction to the shopping experience and final dishes was a full foodie experience! Chef Hung was funny, polite and patient as he walked us through our... More

Chef Hung was super friendly and knowledgeable. The menu was delicious and hit all my favorites: pho bo, bun cha, spring rolls,... More

Found this place using trip advisor and it lived up to all the top reviews- started with the Hanoi spring rolls and they were amazing, the salad looked like artwork. I have stir fried veggies and my friend had the catfish sweet and sour, both were delicious. I also had a ginger tea that was outstanding- the whole experience was... More

Tamarind duck, pho soup and papaya salad were perfect and so far the best we tried in Vietnam. We saw that current restaurant is included into city food tour.

Orchid cooking class and Chef Hung was a wonderful experience. Our 4 hours was spent learning about the Vietnamese cuisine we were learning to cook, going to the market with Chef Hung by pedi-cab to collect ingredients for dishes, preparing the dishes and finally eating the dishes. Cooked Pho Bo, fresh spring rolls, green mango salad, and Hanoi style grilled... More
