Owner description: We offer a Half day cooking classes for visitors to Nha Trang at a cost of $24 USD per person. It is a great experience and a must do for someone looking for variety to their trip to Nha Trang and something a little different. It involves travelling to the local market in a cyclo, a guided tour of the marketplace, where people get involved in learning about the local food and buying the ingredients for your meals. You then return to the restaurant where you prepare 3 dishes as chosen by the guests and of course enjoy eating what you have prepared.

I have done numerous cooking classes in Asia and although this was fun with some new friends, it was very basic. I think it would be great for kids and absolute beginners. The instructor, Nam, was excellent. The market visit always seems to precede the cooking and this was one of the better market visits. We selected and bought all the ingredients for our meal instead of just looking at fruit, veg and meat. I did change from chicken to tofu clay pot after wandering through the meat section! We returned by cyclo to the restaurant and much of the messy preparation was done for us. We made our clay pot dish, constructed and decorated our fresh spring rolls and flambéed our chosen fruit and ate it. The class was from 9-2pm but we were well finished by 12.30. This was not a problem but maybe if there were more people it would take longer.

We spent the morning with Nam around the markets and in the restaurant.

She was so helpful, pointing out things we could try in the market (unrelated to our cookery meals) and giving us the inside track on Vietnam. She was friendly, helpful and full of tips and ideas.

The cookery class was lovely and the food we made both delicious but also (yet to be tested) re-createable back home!

Just do it!

Just returned from this course. Small group of 5. Our chef/guide Nam, trip to markets via cyclo, market tour and purchasing of produce, cooking and eating of meal we made was just fantastic. Well recommended for interest, value, fun, culture and eating. The biggie for me also is that This restaurant are socially responsible by providing services to the local residents/orphanages/children. Good to see as all too often in these countries foreigners open business and get wealthy to the detriment of the people of the country. Well done latterns.

Very much enjoyed the cooking class at lanterns. The trip to the market was a great way to start the day, very interesting and we learned a lot thanks to Nam's explanations. And I am now able to assemble a half-decent rice paper roll, something I would not have thought possible!
