We started a day with interesting market tour. Our guide took us to the shop where she knew every one there. Then we went back to cook. It was the most interactive and informative cooking class we have ever done. The most enjoyable part was when we got to chop, mix and put all ingredients together by ourselves differently from most classes which tend to be more demonstrations than teaching. The food came out incredible good and beautiful. It was such a wonderful day at Hidden Hanoi.

What a great time at the Hidden Hanoi cooking class. Nikita was an outstanding teacher, filling us in on little “tricks of the trade” to complete our super pho recipe. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and wondered where the time went. It’s a real “hands on” approach with a lot of insight from Nikita. Thank you so much for a wonderful class. And thanks to all the assistants who cleaned up our mess...
This was fun, informative and delicious! The venue itself is very nice and peaceful. The class was extremely well prepared and organised. Ann was a wonderful teacher, extremely knowledgeable, happy to answer every question and her English is quite simply amazing. I can't recommend this enough. Thank you for a fabulous experience!
If you are in Hanoi, dont miss the chance to take this cooking class. My fiance and I took this class not because do not know how to cook but because we wanted to experience something new. My fiance owns a small restaurant back home and even though we both know how to cook, this cooking class was able to teach us new interesting techniques and style in cooking. Our day started with a market. The guide took us to the shop where they know almost everyone there. Then we went to their kitchen to cook. They class consisted of different tourists as well. They were all very friendly, the staff was accommodating too. It was interactive and informative at the same time.
We had a fabulous time learning how to cook Vietnamese Streetfood. Nikita was very knowledgeable and engaging. The food we cooked was absolutely delicious!! Would recommend to anyone interested in learning about Vietnamese cuisine, and how to cook in an authentic way!
The person who lead he class was really friendly and gave us loads of tips on what places to eat in Hanoi. We got to take the recipes home afterward and a gift bag to boot. I would definitely recommend this to more people. Great way to try something new on holiday!
After I've finished this cooking class, Pho becomes my favorite Vietnamese dish. It was so good with its herbal smell of the soup. The cooking class itself was excellent as it help me gain a better understanding of the people, culture and food! It is a perfect choice for those who looking for interesting activity to do in Hanoi.
We are young teenagers traveling around Vietnam. We have strong passion for traveling and food which makes us desire to learn something about Vietnamese cuisine. We enjoyed the market tour where the tour guide showed us all the secrets about best way to get good ingredients for a perfect meal. Our teacher was super nice to answer our questions. We would definitely will come back here sometimes and will recommend to our friends.
We went to half day market tour. AMAZING!! It was really fascinating to experience with a local. The staff is superb friendly, helpful with excellent English skills. The cooking was fun with great conversation about Vietnamese culture. Plus, the meal was actually one of the best part of our entire trip. I could say this is a must to explore a genuine Vietnamese experience.
