I did the full nine courses and each of them was very nice, it also helped to see the base of Vietnamese cooking as to which ingredients stayed the same and which ones swapped out.
You are loaded with information, particularly in the garden, that leads me to think maybe I should have been writing things down if I hadn't been enjoying it so much.
The staff is all really nice and the owner is a natural wheeler dealer with a gift for the gab, amusing me and his other guests throughout the day.
Your money could go further other places in Vietnam, however it is a good day's cooking and I would recommend.

"Friendly class, tasty food!"
My boyfriend and I loved this cooking class, our teacher was very enthusiastic and taught us all about every ingredient, and made sure every member of the class was keeping up and knowing what to do. We learnt about Vietnamese herbs and fish sauce and prawns, etc. We had iced tea to go with the food. The food was so yummy!! We also got a cute recipe booklet to take home. Loads of fun!! Oh - and the market tour at the beginning was a lovely way to begin the day!

"Great introduction to Vietnamese cooking!"
Started off with a cute little market tour. Friendly and informative chef guided us through the 3 different meals which left me very full and content by the end of the session. The recipe cards we got at the end came in handy when I attempted to recreate the dishes back home! Had a great time :)

"A delicious learning experience"
Mi was an both warm and friendly and a source of information as she took our small class of 4 people through the preparation of three very different Vietnamese dishes. We all learnt a great deal about ingredients we already thought we already knew (particularly Morning Glory) and it was a bonus to be able to purchase some of the specialist utensils to keep our Vietnamese cooking going when we arrive home to Australia. We also appreciated being provided with the recipes of all the dishes we were taught. They were beautifully presented in a lovey colourful folder. All up, a wonderful 3 hours and a real highlight of our Saigon holiday.

Lua was very friendly and inviting. She hosted our small group in her apartment where we were warmly welcomed. Lua has been cooking since she was a young child. The years of experience in cooking traditional Vietnamese food was evident in the deliciousness of the flavours in the dishes. Together we cooked a sensational and flavoursome 3 course meal. Lua was very accommodating to a vegan diet and provided us with the recipes for us to replicate at home. If you’re in Ho Chi Minh, it’s a must do!! Thanks Lua!

We where introduced to the local herbs, vegetables and fruits. Then went into the cooking class.
Chef Chey Tan was awesome in explaining the ingredients and instructions. The food was delicious.
We didn’t realise it was so easy to cook such great food.
Looking forward to taking the experience and cooking at home.

"Great fun cooking with Lua!"
The cooking class was not only fun, but also really instructive. We learned several techniques in just a few hours (e.g. using caramel to add flavor to fish) and had a very tasty lunch at the end. Lua was very friendly and knowledgeable and it was great to get some insights into Vietnamese culture from her. Would definitely recommend the experience while in Saigon.

"Interesting, educational and really fun!"
The dishes we cooked were all delicious yet simple. The recipes were provided at the end, and I feel confident in what produce to buy and techniques to use in order to recreate them. It was extremely clean, and all the tools were safe and easy to use. I would recommend doing to market stop to get the ingredients first (it is a proper local market and no other tourists there). Cant fault the class, so that's why I have given 5 stars.

"Great cooking class with amazing food"
My boyfriend and I had a great cooking class with amazing food a few days ago at Lua's place. Lua is super nice, explained a lot around Vietnamese food and culture and made us feel at home at her lovely apartment. We even got some secret tips and the recipes per mail afterwards so we can cook the meals at home.
All in all highly recommendable! Thanks Lua!

"Fantastic cooking and cultural experience"
We enjoyed not only learning how to make three authentic and exquisite Vietnamese dishes, but also gaining in insight into Vietnamese living and culture. Lua was welcoming, interesting and good-humoured, and the class structured in a way that we were all (group of 4) kept busy throughout. A must-do if you are in HCM City.

"Very much fun, very engaging and interactive."
Lua did a great job preparing everything and everybody could be of help afterwards to make the three course dinner perfect. We had all natural ingredients and she made sure that people with allergies got to eat everything as well. We had a nice group of seven people and talked a lot while eating and cooking. Great start to Vietnamese food.

"Delicious food, easygoing fun afternoon experience"
My mom and I joined the class not long after landing in Saigon for the first time. It was a great way to spend the afternoon, the class format and preparation was very smooth and easygoing. We're definitely going to make some of this food at home in the future!

Ms Lua is a great host, has wonderful knowledge and share it clearly. I loved the small group- we all got to do things, to observe closely so we now know what ‘cooked’ looks like. The afternoon was great and I learnt so much. Thank you, Ms Lua!!!

"Amazing Cooking Class"
Since we‘ve enjoyed the great Food at cyclo resto twice, we wanted to learn more how to do it. First we visited the local market and found out how to get the best fresh ingredients. At cyclo resto the complete Team around the Chef supported the Cooking class. We learned how to prepare, spice up, cook and decorate a whole menue. The Result was amazing and we can warmly recommend everything.

"A must-do in Ho-Chi-Minh!"
Cooking with Lua was a great experience. She explained every step and really cooked with us together instead of just showing us what we have to do. The food was really delicious, I would even say it was one of the best tasting meals we had during our two weeks travel trough Vietnam. Therefore if you have a little spare time left during your vacation I would really recommend you to spend a few lovely hours with Lua!(:
