This was a great experience! We were picked up at the hotel, walked through an outdoor market to buy our ingredients and get a lesson on many Vietnamese foods, and were driven to the class venue. The location is really nice, clean and inviting. Everything was well demonstrated and we had a great time making all the dishes for our dinner. Highly recommend!!

First the market tour was great. Getting to see all the different things and learn their names in Vietnamese was great. The cooking class itself was wonderful. Dana was an amazing teacher and made everything easy to follow and understand while still having fun. We made so many things and then sat down for a great meal. This is something you should not miss if you come to Hanoi!

I had an excellent day navigating through the markets as we purchased our produce to cook. Our guide Apple was excellent in showing us Vietnamese cooking techniques. Our day was fun, informative, interactive and lastly tasty as we enjoyed the food that we had prepared and cooked.
