I have been to a few cooking classes in my travels through Vietnam and Green Bamboo was the best by far. Van and her driver picked everyone up from their individual hotels, had a great time at the market where we learned a lot about Central Vietnamese food and then went back to Van's for a cooking extravaganza. We had... More

We spent yesterday with Van and her ladies and 13 others shopping, preparing & cooking Vietnamese food items from a list of possible dishes to choose from. It was fun to do the shopping, to see how real Hoi An housewives buy their food every day then off to Van's house to cook. The cooking school is extremely well equipped... More

Van does an amazing job! I was selective with the class I booked and felt like I made the best choice possible. My teenage daughter and I took the class, we both loved it and agree that it is one of the highlights of our trip so far. For all you foodies out there, this is the class you are... More

If you do nothing else in Hoi An, do the Green Bamboo Cooking School. Van is an amazing host and teacher, from the market to the stove top Van has every detail covered. An amazing day thank you Van

Countless reviews talk about the format of the class, but to reiterate, everyone picks a dish, you cook them one by one, and you eat all of the chosen dishes. It's a huge amount of food. I disagree with any reviews that say this class was too long. It was not. I had a great day and really enjoyed every... More

The day starts by meeting Van the friendly and knowledgeable owner of the cooking school at the local market to buy all of the ingredients for the day's dishes. There were 11 of us in total and we had all picked something different which was great! After going grouch the market and learning about different vegetables and spices, and how... More

What an absolutely amazing experience. Have just completed the Green Bamboo cooking tour with Van today and it has to be the highlight of our 12 days in Vietnam so far. Started early this morning with total of 11 participants and a visit to Hoi An market to purchase all the ingredients. Every person chose to create a different dish.... More

Van doesn't need another great review but here goes... A friend and I recently spent a day with Van at her Green Bamboo Cooking School and it was absolutely fantastic. There were 12 people (her max) in the course so we got to try 12 different dishes throughout the day. Each person selects a dish from a long list of... More

What a superb experience, we were taken by the lovely Van to the market where we shopped for our ingredients, she explained lots of the unfamiliar ingredients to us. At the cooking school there was a group of 11 of us, each making a different dish, we all did the prep for our dish then all took it in turns... More

Most of the reviews here are for the main class which runs from the morning till around 3:30pm. So I thought I'd leave a review for the evening class which is also a great option, particularly for those who only have a limited amount of time in Hoi An. The evening class is shorter therefore less expensive than the main... More
