We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids, and opted for the cooking class. If I could give this place a higher rating, I would. The class, the food and the wonderful family who own and run this place were all top notch. Would recommend to all!

The garden tour was lovely, the cooking class was a lot of fun, and our group got to eat what we prepared. We had a blast, and lunch was delicious, in a cozy, relaxed atmosphere.

I can’t say enough good things about Kumquat.
Set in the middle on the vegetable village, at the back of the chefs house. The atmosphere is so relaxed, the restaurant is rustic and every dish is cooked where you can see. The ingredients are so fresh and seasonal, the vegetables are picked from the patches in front of you.
Each dish sang! The bbq beef and pork looked so simple yet the flavours were stunning. A watercress salad danced off the plate. It couldn’t have been any fresher. The flambéd fish sat in it’s pot on the table still flaming and we needed a spoon for the sauce as we didn’t want to waste any.
Worth seeking out as it is away from all the tourists and down a track.
Dinner for 4 including drinks (and including us being greedy because we ordered extra because we simply wanted more of such good food) came to under 1 million vnd. (£30 ish).

We started at 8 o Clock in the morning at the restaurant. Then we went to the market to buy some ingridients. We got many informations, about the vietnamese food. The cookingclass was in a nice atmosphere but sometimes cooking was not enough independently. Drinks are not included!

This is a must do experience if you want to get away from the city based restaurants and have a semi rural meal.
It is set up in a vegetable growing farm about 5 km from Hoi An town.
We were greeted by the chef and shown to a table in the kitchen restaurant area on the ground level of a house. Several ladies were completing a cooking course which looked fantastic. Pity we don’t have time to go.
We had a couple of delicious inexpensive cocktails to begin. We then had the traditional pancakes. All of the many and varied salads were from their own garden outside. This means you can not get fresher. After the pancakes we had a flaming pork dish and bbq fish with passionfruit sauce. This was complemented with a salad and rice. We finished with some grilled pineapple. All food was perfectly cooked as we watched. The prices were very reasonable for this standard of cuisine.
They kindly called a taxi for our return to town. Hope we can return.
