Duong's cooking class instructor "jack" was awesome. He was informative, thorough and funny. I was really impressed with our market visit too. Helped bring the understanding of Vietnamese food full circle.

I definitely recommend this class, Rose kitchen. I joined by myself without friends but it’s a group lesson. But no worries, I met nice people and enjoyed cooking very much. The foods we made in the afternoon was really nice. It was the best foods I had in Hanoi. The cooking teacher was so kind. Very organized lesson and nice place with good foods. I want to come back to this cooking class next time again.
Albert was amazing! He was an Iron Chef! I was picked up from my hotel then we used a cyclo and we had a short tour around the market. I got to meet the Vietnamese locals and they were all smiling and warm. I'm not a cook, but i am very interested in learning. And so, the locals were kind enough to teach me things that I do not know, and they answered my questions. We headed back to Albert's kitchen and there, along with other tourists, he demonstrated and teach us step by step process and techniques in cooking. He taught us how to cook traditional Pho, and more. Truly, i was able to feel the culture through chef Albert's teaching. After the demonstration, we were to recreate the dish hands on. It was definitely a great way to travel other than just doing sight seeing.
Came to gain some direction on Vietnamese cuisine and did I find the right place. Thank you Chef. A most memorable experience Thank you
It was just me and my friend for the afternoon class, chef Albert ran the class and the market tour and we had so much fun. The food was amazing and the snacks we were introduced to at the market were all really good too. Albert was super attentive and the class was very informative. Thank you so much! 100% recommended :)
I’m so happy I booked this cooking class. Albert (the chef) picked me up personally from the hotel and directly headed to their kitchen to start preparing the broth for the Phó. We then continued to the market with the cyclo to buy the rest of the ingredients and to taste some of their local snacks ( sweet and savory). Also, he nicely educated me about their eating culture and daily routine which was quite interesting. After cooking he also asked me to call my husband to join me eat what I cooked, very much appreciated. Overall, it was an amazing experience. I cook a lot myself and thought I already know a lot about spices and herbs, but apparently there’s still a lot to learn. Thank you Albert and sous chef for completing my trip to Vietnam.
Teacher (albert) went extra mile to educate us and give everyone hands on experience, really informative and obviously knew what he was doing. Delicious food that I will make again. Trip to market was fantastic with the chance to converse with locals and try interesting food that I wouldn't have tried on my own!
This whole experience I knows was going to be special right from the hotel pick up. Albert the chef was very informative and funny with a great attention to detail. The market visit was unparalleled. Not only did we learn what all the unique ingredients were but got the opportunity to converse with the locals while trying the different street foods. The dishes we made were functional and easy to re create back home.
I would highly recommend this class to all. It is not only a cooking class but also a day to discover Vietnam traditional food with super great taste on all kind of street food and more on fresh ingredients for this special meal. The food I've made was amazing. I definitely will cook these dishes at home sometimes. This was the best day in Hanoi !
A visit to the market was so great, I got a chance to go around and taste different fruits & street food! It was amazing! Aside from that, the food that we made was so tasty, particularly pho and fresh spring rolls. After all we sat down comfortably and having meal all together with chef. It was a great time spending with full of new experience.
This private cooking class was so detailed, neat, clean, and fun. My experience with my two friends at Duong's is memorable. We cooked delicious foods, received recipe booklet after the lesson. I would highly recommend this precious cooking class, don't miss out on the amazing food here.
I really had a great time here at Duong's cooking class. The chef is very friendly and helpful. The food is totally delicious. I highly recommend this place if you are interested in Vietnamese cuisine and if you would like to enjoy a new experience.
