I did a cooking class with Son on reccomendation from my Intrepid leader. I wasn't disappointed witht the quality of the food, cleanliness of the kitchen facilities or the professionalism of the chef. It was a great morning, a quick trip to the local market, some preparation, cooking and then enjoying a cold beer a delicious food that we had cooked. Good value for money, $25 USD. My only disappointment was being told the recipies would be emailed, and 3 weeks later having to follow up their whereabouts. The restaurant though was easy to contact to make this request and am currently awaiting the recipies.

We came back a few days later after the cooking class for a group dinner, and were not disappointed. It's obvious the chef has 5 star training, there were no disappointments with the food (there were 17 of us in the group and all were very happy with their meals). Great value for money, delicious drinks also and wonderful service. We had the VIP balcony upstairs which had a great outlook across the river and lanterns. Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our last night in wonderful Hoi An.

Had a very good half day visiting the markets, being instructed in cooking 3 vietnam dishes (including grilled tuna in banana leaf - delicious ) and eating them as part of a delicious lunch.
Well worth it

Lovely restaurant to eat and drink in and despite a bat hitting the fan above our table and landing in the middle of it (stunned but alive!), it didn't detract from a lovely evening and friendly staff. Food was good and the chef/owner was incredibly friendly.

We did the cooking class with Son (owner) as part of our tour. It was so much fun going to the market with a local. He was a great teacher, very passionate about cooking & food. It was just a fun afternoon & dinner was delicious, beacuse we cooked it!

Our tour included cooking class with Son at Lantern Town and it is one of my favorite memories of my time in Vietnam! Son first took us to the local market and showed us how our dinnfer ingredients are sourced. We then went back to the restaurant to begin preparing the food at a leisurely pace accompanied by drinks. The instructions were really easy to follow and Son was very helpful, especially to the non-cooks! I couldn't believe how good the food tasted when we were done - we learned to make dipping sauce, summer rolls, crispy spring rolls, papaya salad and tuna roasted in a banana leaf. They gave us all the recipes so we didn't have to take notes and it's definitely something I make do at home!

The food was amazing, the staff was great and the restaurant was lovely. I will defnitely return if in Hoi An again!
