Warmest greetings from the Vietnam Cookery! Established since 1999, we are the first and most professional Cookery Center in Vietnam, teaching Vietnamese gastronomy to Tourists and other professional visitors from all over the world. Years of having tirelessly worked to give you the best services have earned us the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and we do appreciate your interest. Our courses are hands-on classes, with an introduction to the food culture of Vietnam, providing you with a memorable souvenir to bring home.About our location: Our school is located in the heart of Saigon, from our large terrace you will have an unique view of an area that real estate developers call the "Golden Triangle".On top of having a wonderful initiation on Vietnamese Gastronomy, you will have the opportunity to go back in history and spend time in one of the last colonial building still erected right downtown. This building has been built in 1930 by the French, and was to be the residence of the Saigonese Elite. It was the first concrete building in Asia, and the pride of its French architect. Unfortunately he made a typical "colonial" mistake: as many French buildings in France, the space under the roof was divided into small rooms for the servants. When the building was finished and the apartments put on sale, none of the rich Vietnamese accepted to live there, as in Asia the tradition is to have only your ancestors' altar or worshiped gods over your head, not servants!

My partner and I attended the Vietnam Cookery Centre while having dental work done in Ho Chi Minh. We had a great afternoon learning to make our favourite spring rolls and other Vietnamese dishes. The staff are friendly and it was very hands on. We have attended cooking classes in Australia before but enjoyed this one more. Great fun!

We had a wonderful time with the Vietnam Cookery Centre, they were very knowledgeable and friendly, food was delicious, and we even got to take detailed recipes home! Would definitely recommend to anyone passionate about cooking and looking to skill up in their traditional vietnamese dishes.

We were in a class of 5 people only. The staff were more than happy to alter the menu for us as we don't like fish. Everyone was very friendly and we had a great morning. Would definitely recommend!

Great fun, with a really informative teacher and assistant that spoke very good English. Really enjoyed myself and the central location makes the lessons very accessible. Thanks again, I will certainly visit again next time i am in HCM.

Paid by PayPal, emailled confirming I had done so. Turned up on the day and no course - I assume they preferred to not run it as no one else had booked. So rude. Had planned to attend two classes too. Good luck if you try this place.
