“Wonderful Cooking Class!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

I was travelling on a Cruise Ship that docked in Da Nang and wanted to organise a trip into Hoi An for the day with a cooking class. I emailed the restaurant directly to organise the cooking class along with a bike ride of the countryside/visit the duck farm, herb gardens & blacksmith and also a visit to the local market they were very prompt with their response I was impressed before I had even arrived. The staff collected me from my ship in Da Nang which was an extra that I organised and were very professional they brought me to the restaurant and gave me a welcome drink before we headed off on our bike ride through the countryside which was just lovely I really got a taste for the true Vietnam! Once back at the restaurant we began preparing & cooking, Ms Linh & I prepared alongside each other then I watched her cook before I proceeded to cook. We made Fresh Spring Rolls & even decorated them, Green Mango & Beef Salad and also Sauteed Chicken with Chilli & Lemongrass. All meals were delicious and I sat with the Sales Manager to eat mine, it was lovely to have some company while eating the meal. The class was a one on one experience which was great - I really enjoyed the day and would thoroughly recommend anyone visiting Hoi An to take a cooking class here!

“Fun and Tasty”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Ling at the Goda Bar and Cooking School provided us with a terrific learning experience and a fun filled morning. Her class was well organized and I must say it is great fun to cook when you have an assistant to clean your skillet and magically appear with prepped ingredients. Our finished lunch was very tasty. Ling's sense of humour and personality were delightful. A highly recommended experience!

“Great intro to Vietnamese cooking”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Thank you to Ms Linh for her clear instructions! The demos were great and my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed being in a class of 2. We cooked up a 3 course masterpiece in no time, then ate it in the restaurant and enjoyed a bottle of wine. The teacher spoke excellent English and had a great sense of humour.

We received a certificate and very handy gift that we will definitely use when we go home.

“First Time cooking School”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Booked into this cooking school on recommendation of where we were staying in Hoi An . Was very convenient but in saying that we were picked up by a taxi and dropped off at the Goda Restaurant and introduced to our cooking teachers . There was only myself and my wife and we were made to feel relaxed and were given a hands on experience in preparing 3 vietnamese dishes which even included decorations. Information regarding the ingrediants,their nutritional and health benefits were also provided.
After you complete the course you then sit down and dine on your outstanding dishes that you have prepared for yourselves.
There are different options you can choose and ours didn't include the visit to the markets to obtain the produce but you can include this if you want.
At lunch were were greeted warmly by Frederick who is the owner who went out of his way to make sure everything was to our expectations and then proceeded to present to us our certificates and took a photo which duly arrived as promised by email.
All in all a great cooking experience in a modern clean environment with happy friendly staff and no expectations of ones cooking abilities
