A popular place to visit in Hanoi is the old quarter, and recently around the popular sword lake area on Friday Evening to Sunday, cars and motorbikes have been banned... just outside the no driving area, down a small busy street and if luck you will find this little gem... it's tucked away but the food here is extremely reasonable...

Can't say enough about this class and the food. This would be my number 1 activity in Hanoi of all the things we did! Chef Hung was very entertaining and energetic, AND a good teacher, always prompting us to answer his questions before he told us things, which kept us really engaged. The market tour was perhaps the most fun... More

The cooking class was very memorable and enjoyable. We did it on Christmas Day, and it was the most meaningful Christmas Day we have ever had. The food was fantastic, the teaching was professional. Highly recommended!

A great experience if you want to combine cooking with a market trip, both of which were equally entertaining and educational. Be sure to take pictures while touring through the market as these are some of our favorites - the colors, sounds, and smells were wonderful!The recipes seem to be easy to follow although I haven't had the opportunity to...

Chef Hung has a great personality and kept us entertained not only with his culinary skills but his jokes throughout the day. We also really enjoyed the cyclo ride and the visit to the market. Great photo opportunity! He encouraged us to ask any questions which he was more than happy to answer. Plus we got treated to some snacks.... More

We had dinner at Blue Butterfly and would highly recommend it. They serve many traditional Vietnamese dish, all very good and well presented. Staff is friendly, helpful and professional. The place is a nice old building. Prices are very reasonable for the overall quality

We enjoyed the market tour and cooking class. We didn't know the recipes/dishes when we booked and upon arrival I learned there was no fish dish on the list. So I asked if we can learn one traditional fish dish and the cook agreed. Since 1 couple had to catch a plane and was short of time we did the... More

I booked this class before SnessieK8's review noting that most of the cooking was done by the chef and I totally regret it. $55 USD to watch a cooking demonstration and spend less than 20 minutes out of the whole class chopping a piece of vegetable or rolling spring rolls only to have the chef individually re-roll every single one...
