    Very enjoyable and our children 8, 10, 13 yo were all catered for and loved the class.

    This was wonderful! The establishment was very clean and organized. We experience a bit of culture walking to the market to see how local buy and sell food for items. That was an interesting and eye-opening experience. We were able to cook everything with the exception of the dessert, because we were running short on time, so we just helped a bit. The hosts were very hospitable and willing to assist and make the experience pleasurable. Wonderful experience!

    This tour was amazing!! I highly recommend taking it. Our guide/chef was terrific. We had a great little tour of the morning market. Then off to the very clean,well set up kitchen to prepare our Vietnamese dishes. After we completed our dishes we were then sat at a table to enjoy our creations.
    If given the chance I definitely would do this again.

    A fabulous tour. Our driver arrived at the specified time and delivered us to the Hanoi cooking centre where we were met by Tracey who took us to the fresh market for our experience of grocery shopping Vietnamese style. Fantastic experience, very interesting and informative and a bit of an eye opener. Back at the school we were shown our cooking stations and after watching a demonstration it was our turn to prepare and cook delicious, fresh, tasty vietnamese food . The food we had cooked was served to us in the restaurant upstairs with a glass or two of delicious local "Dalat" wine.. The staff were both friendly and knowledgable. This is a very well run and organised tour and comes very highly recommended.

    The cooking class was great fun and the food turn out deliciously. We particularly love the information on the various ingredients and preparation methods imparted; it inspired a subsequent shopping spree on local cooking ingredients that we took home!

    The staff were lovely however we would describe this as a cutting class, not a cooking class. At no point do you apply heat or learn any real cooking techniques. If you have done one asian market tour you can skip this one, it is simply more of the same. The facilities are lovely - not the cheapest

    HAd a fascinating day with our guide. It was great to see Ha Noi early in the morning. Also, the cooking class was super!! We were promised recipes to be emailed to us but that hasn't happened yet.

    This was a most interesting morning spending time in the local market shopping for and learning about the ingedients, which we cooked in the Cooking Centre and then had for lunch.
    The staff were very friendly and we had a jolly time making our recipes!
    We even took our Spring Rolls home with us to eat later - crooked and not very perfect in shape as they came out!
    Yet we were very proud of our efforts !!
    Thank you to the staff at the Cooking Centre for a most enjoyable and fun-filled morning !!
    Wishing you all every success at the Hanoi Cooking Centre!
