“Amazing food, good value and great cooking classes”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Every time I am in Hanoi, this is my go to place for affordable tasty food. Everything is always so fresh and simple but authentic and fabulous. This trip I decided to try their cooking class and was thrilled with it! It started with making the broth for the pho and while that was slow cooking we took a tour of the markets to collect our fresh fish and some pork meat. This was an amazing experience trying local delicacies on the street and seeing the market produce. I really could not speak highly enough of the chef's passion, interest and love for food and cooking. He proudly refuses to use MSG or take the easy and quick ways of preparing food and the result is fantastic.

“Hanoi style fish”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We ended up to this restaurant when we took a food-on-foot tour. After that we ate here twice by ourself. Hanoi style fish is an excellent dish. You should try it! I ordered also roasted duck, and it was cleaned from bones so that I can use it to make my own rice paper rolls which was delivered with fish. Excellent food and great service.

“A Cozy Place to Dine”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We ate at this restaurant twice during our four days stay in Hanoi, not by choice, but because it was included in our city tour. I have eaten better tasting Pho than what they served here, however, the other dishes were quite tasteful and presented artfully. The springrolls and shrimp in sugarcane was delightful. Their banana desert was so yummy! The place is cozy wether you visit it for lunch or dinner. It is a decent restaurant if your the kind that feel sqeemish eating streetfood. For the taste, presentation of food and the ambiance of the place, prices are relatively reasonable.

“Great fun and delicious”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

First we took a walk to the market and learned about the different foods, sampled some of the street fare and then shopped for the ingredients for what we were making. That alone was worth taking the class. It was hands on and the little extras made it a wonderful experience.

“Great experience for Vietnamese cooking class!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We did the cooking class at Orchid in mid June and it was a great experience! Before cooking we went to the street market to buy the ingredients which we later cooked. The staff and the manager, Nguyen, are extremely nice and speak very good English. The food was delicious, and we had plenty of it, we could not finish it! We definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants to learn the secrets of Vietnamese cuisine.
