The cooking school was highly praised on trip advisor and also the local travel agent suggested as the best one, even though it comes with a higher price tag – but as those experiences that you are likely to do it once – my suggestion is to choose a good one. We got picked up from the hotel and driven... More

Ya is the perfect teacher to learn thai cooking. It is a perfect place en very cheap. One big tip: Is much cheaper to call the thai cookery school directly, then buy a trip by a booking center in Ao Nang. Her number is Phone: (66) 075.662.155 Mobile: (66) 081.979.0677.

Miss Ya is absolutely incredible and her cooking school is one of the most interesting "off the beaten path" activities in Krabi. She has a vibrant personality, speaks great English, and can probably make a very delicious meal out of anything. Miss Ya has actually been featured in several international TV shows, and for good reason! She really knows how... More

It was one of the best Thai experiences. And I found out after returning back home that she was teaching Gordon Ramsey!

I have been to plenty of cooking classes in Thailand and I would rate this as one of the best. The staff were lovely and I learnt so much. I am an avid foodie and cook and I am always looking for different points of interest. This really did it for me and I got some really helpful tips. Although... More

For a non-chef - Ya made cooking Thai cuisine easy & enjoyable. From her tales of overseas adventures, to her directions of "Bang bang - chop chop" - Ya is a real character with a band of willing assistants who helped us create a smorgasbord of 17 dishes to consume afterwards. Sending us adrift with a cookbook (I bought one... More

The class was 2 hours , some of the ingredients were all ready prepared for you. (Aren't we suppose to learn what to do?) I just throw everything to the pan, no explanations . They don't really understand how to teach, or don't understand some of the English words which are necessary for teaching. The food was minus ok. Many... More

Highly recommended for those who want to learn thai cooking. I had such an informative lesson right from the basics. Madam Ya is really friendly and an amazing teacher. She even taught us to adjust variations in the recipes and gave us her email address to contact her in case we needed new recipes and advise.
