My wife and a friend did a cooking class here during our trip, was excellent by all reports. Class lasted 3.5 hrs and involved a trip to the local markets to source ingredients, the instructor didn't speak english but this doidn't really present a problem.

We met Manh, the friendliest man on the island, trying to sell a boat tour on the beach. Unfortunately, we had already booked another tour with John's tour which turned to be a mistake!
The same evening we went for dinner to his restaurant as we wanted to reward his friendliness. All the waiters there were very open and friendly although their english skills are rather rudimentary. The food was great and also the service.
We learned that Manh offers a coking class in his restaurant which we booked. That was a real tremendous experience. We were only two people and Manh's wife as friendly as her husband taught us how to cook some vietnamese dishes. We started on buying the ingredients on the local market which was a very interesting experience and then cooked 6 different dishes which we ate afterwards. Guess what? It tasted fantastic and we were quite proud of us.
We can recommend this restaurant to all of you and it would be a mistake not spending one evening there: The food tastes great, the service is friendly and customer orientated, the prices are reasonable and the ambiance is very enjoyable.

My friend introduced me to Manh, the owner of Red River. He is one of the nicest people I met in Vietnam. Besides his restaurant, he can set up anything that you need on the island, from hotels, renting bikes, kayaking trips and cooking classes. I ate at Red River 4 times and the food was always excellent, try the crab soup or fried kingfish. I will definitely return!
