Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Chef Duyen is well deserving of her high ranking status and generous reviews as she offers a wonderful experience that is value for money.
My 8 y/o daughter and I had a fantastic time, the tour of the local market, the relaxed and guided cooking class and of course the feasting that followed.
Such a wonderful and unique opportunity that I would highly recommend for those looking to experience authentic Vietnamese culture and cooking.

Chef Duyen's market tour and cooking class is an incredible experience. We were shown around a huge bustling market, tasting and smelling many herbs and produce. So much information and sights it is hard to take it all in! And then you arrive at her beautiful commercial kitchen with fresh ingredients ready to begin cooking your 5 course meal! Thank you so much for providing such an interesting and tasty vegan class it was an absolute highlight of our stay in Hanoi. I highly recommend taking any of Chef Duyen's many activities she is super friendly and very informative.

I'm not usually the kind of person who goes for local tours & cooking classes, but Chef Duyens class is a MUST GO!! My boyfriend and I did the wet market tour + cooking class with Chef Duyen from 430 - 930 & we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!!

Even though we were groggy from having woken up so early, we quickly gained energy from her personality & passion. She explained so much in detail & let us try delicious street food that she loves even though it is not included in the package. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed, even bringing along raincoats for us because she knew it might rain.

Chef Duyen really shows an exceptional amount of passion and care for her culture from the way she shares and cooks. Highly highly recommend for anyone who wants to experience Vietnamese hospitality & authentic Vietnamese cuisine.

Chef Duyen is the best... My nephew and I enjoyed the market tour and the cooking instruction. Many visitors to Hanoi become familiar with the Old Quarter, and it was so wonderful and refreshing that this was in a different neighborhood to explore further beyond the tourist path. Duyen creates a welcoming environment in her lovely home where she teaches specific Vietnamese dishes. She also has a GREAT sense of humor! By the end of the cooking class, we all felt like extended family! If you are looking for an authentic cooking experience in Hanoi, this is it.

One of our greatest highlights in Hanoi was knowing Chef Duyen! We booked her Cooking Class & Market Tour (morning session), fell in love with her jovial personality, and continued to book an evening Food Tour with her!

Chef Duyen is the warmest, most humble, reliable and passionate Vietnamese chef. We had such a great time cooking and talking to her in our respective 2 sessions. Chef Duyen's traditional dishes were splendid (we went with Menu B for the cooking class). Her house is clean, well-equipped, spacious for our group of 6-pax, and is located just a few minutes' walk from the wet market.

She was extremely helpful when we asked her (way too many) questions on food ingredients and where to buy them in Hanoi. She is a pro and knows (almost) everyone in the markets! We bought good quality fish sauce, cashew nuts, dried scallops and Phu Quoc peppercorn with her honest and good recommendations.

To say that Chef Duyen was a wonderful educator of Vietnamese cuisine would be an understatement. She not only instructed our group of four on the recipes we were producing, she provided the cultural context while cooking and on our local market tour.
She seemed to know everyone at the market too! It was fun, informative, and delicious! You are missing out on the best experience in Hanoi if you do not book at least a cooking class with Chef Duyen.

We did the Long Bien market tour with Chef Duyen. Starting with a 4:30am start time the market was so busy. Scooters, trucks, vendors, food, goods everywhere. It was exhilarating and interesting. So much motion and action. We were a bit jet lagged and nervous to try some of the market food on our first day out. We would definitely do the tour again though. It was fascinating.

Chef Duyen is very passionate and organised with the market tour and cooking class that we attended.
Her personal connection with the vendors and the stories she had to tell us was so special. She made sure we understood what we were going to cook with and got us to taste some of it.
The class per se was very interactive and fun. She taught us well and gave us alternate options as needed.
Was lovely to meet her family over lunch, especially her little son who was our biggest cheerleader during the class and gave our dishes his seal of approval.
Thank you Chef Duyen.

We've had a great experience!
First Duyen took us to the local market where she took the time to tell us all about the produce and have us taste some good stuff.
In her beautiful home she learned us some secrets of Vietnamese cooking and we had a great lesson.
And to top it all we had te pleasure to eat all the yummy food with her lovely family.

We had great fun, learned a lot and had an amazing lunch.

Chef Duyen is a happy, cheerful energizer bunny! She is bursting with enthusiasm in sharing her knowledge of local produce and cuisine.

She is detailed in her teaching and so generously shared the company of her family with the group.

Had a wonderful time “in class” with Chef Duyen and definitely looking forward to trying out her recipes back at home!

Highly recommend!
