Chef Hung personally picked us up at our hotel and walked us to his restaurant. We met our culinary squad and had an overview of the class, starting with a demonstration of learning how to make beef pho broth. While the broth simmered, we hopped in tuk tuks and made our way through the old quarter traffic to the market.... More

Five if us did this class and had a marvellous time, including a visit to the nearby market by cyclo, and being led through the preparation of several Vietnamese favourites. Then we got to eat them! Thanks very much for all the great work, chefs Tien and Hung, and your teams!

This was a cooking class with a difference! Hung was our chef and he was knowledgable, fun and cooked amazing food (and his English was excellent). It included learning how to make 3 delicious traditionally vietnamese courses with a trip to the famous food market to buy some of the ingredients. We stopped to learn about ingredients we had never... More

We did not know what to expect from our cooking class at the Blue Butterfly, but the moment we arrived we knew it would be super fun. After our intro to what we would be making we went by cycle to the market to pick out our ingredients. The market had everything imaginable and Chef Hung explained everything to us.... More

I actually booked a cooking class with their sister company, Orchid Cooking Class & Restaurant. When I arrived there I was greeted by Chef Hung and we walked to Blue Butterfly which was only a few minutes walk away. There were 7 of us in a group and we went on a market tour with a cyclo and the chef... More

Entertaining, fun, and educational! The class was very worthwhile. Between the market and the class the chef keeps you on your toes and involves you in all aspects of the cooking process. The four or so hour class moves quickly and you will will be laughing, watching and listening as much as hands on chopping and stirring. Ultimately, the meal... More

We booked a private cooking class with the owner of this restaurant for $75 per person and it was great value. We wanted to learn how to make specialty dishes as opposed to the set menu provided on the group classes. The owner was professional, courteous and was a terrific host. The whole thing lasted roughly six hours and consisted... More

My sister and I did this class with Chef Hung who was a fantastic teacher with a great sense of humour. We learned all about the classics: pho bo, bun cha, summer rolls, banana blossom salad. The highlight was the market tour, where Chef Hung took the time to explain everything from choosing the bones for the pho broth to... More
