We went in a group of six. First spent 1 hour at the market buying veggies, fruit and herbs. Then we were taken by taxi to the cooking school. It was really busy cooking and eating. We had so much fun and we were amazed about our cooking skills! 100% recommendation. A must do in Saigon.

This was educational and fun. The instructor was great and we did the market tour which I enjoyed greatly. Definitely check it out especially is you are in HCMC during a hot day the class is well air conditioned but the market tour would be very warm

We had such a great time at Saigon cooking class! We made 3 great dishes and for surprise dessert. I also don't eat meat and they modified every recipe to suit me. Perfect!

Did the half-day cooking class with market experience. Time at the market was interesting but if you're prone to sleeping in, one could stroll through on their own time and observe mostly the same sights and sounds. Instructions at the school were easy and fun resulting in a great lunch as you get to eat your own creations! Highly recommended!

I took one class here a year ago and liked it so much that I came back and did two more plus the Back of the Bike street eats tour. The restaurant in which the cooking classes are based is very good and the four dishes we made each day were very good too. The explanations were thorough and you... More

The instructors are very considerate and explain tasks well. This is a "must do" for anyone living / expat-ing in HCMC. Take the tour of the market! Even having been to Ben Thanh before this, it was great to get some of the names of foods and to see where/how to buy meats and produce.

A highly enjoyable, hands-on cooking class for beginners, in attractive surroundings. Very suitable for children, too.

The visit to Ben Thanh market was very interesting and our chef/guide was fabulous. Knowledge about the ingredients, really informative about the dishes we were about to prepare, with excellent English and a great sense of humour. The cooking class with fantastic and the food delicious. With a recipe to take away and knowledge on how to recreate these dishes... More

I opted to do the Ben Thanh market tour first - I recommend it even if you've already been to the market, the guides will give you lots of information and tips about how to cook things along the way. The cooking session is great, my dietary requirements were catered for, and the instructor and staff were very helpful throughout.... More
