Great instructor (Trang), excellent facilities, and the menu includes pho. Highly recommended - book through your hotel but pay at the class.

We were lucky enough to have a private tour with (name). I’d recommend doing the afternoon option because a) the market is less busy and b) the class sizes are generally smaller. The market was very cool and she explained a ton of things to us. We took a nice river cruise afterwards- a welcome cool down after the hot... More

Had a great day waking thru and buying our ingredients in the local market. Got to see some items that i definitely would'nt see at my local supermarket. Then off for a short but pleasant boat ride up the river to the cooking school. This was clean and well organised and after working our way thru cooking 4 fabulous dishes... More

This cooking course was very enjoyable. We had a great teacher, Hon, who taught us how to make easy meals that are definitely possible to recreate. The staff here were amazing and their efforts meant the experience was so easy and fun and so much of the food was already prepared for us- I felt a bit lazy! The trip... More

The reason I didn't give it 5 starsb is because at the market tour it was simply too loud to hear much of what Hon was saying.... More

Great cooking class. Picked up from the Essence which was easy and convenient. The cooking class enjoyable and informative. The food we cooked was fantastic and we only used fresh ingredients. I would definitely recommend this if you enjoy cooking.

Lots of faffing around with the boat trip which was a bit unnecessary in my opinion. Not really my cup of tea but if you want a boat trip to take up around 1 hour of your 5 hour course then go for it. Perhaps I am being a little bit pedantic but you are not on an island at... More

Overall, I really enjoyed the Thuan Tinh cooking class. Food is excellent and you learn a lot because every participant has its own cooking space set right in front of him. The service is great, and all new fresh ingredient will be prepared and set right in front of you. I only give 4 stars, because it did feel quite... More

This was everything you need from a cooking class. Hon picked us up from the apartment which made everything really easy and convenient. The cooking class was fun and clear. The food we cooked was amazing which was a testament to the guidance received and fresh ingredients! Definitely recommend!
