Me and my fiancé went to Ya's cooking class and had a great time, where we learnt a lot and ate delicious food at the end of the lesson. At the beginning we sat down while se told us about the local ingredients, then she asked us what we wanted to cook. Everybody shared their favourite dishes and then the... More

When me and my friend were talking to this lovely man selling trips and excursion in Ao Nang, and he introduced us to Krabi Thai Cookery School, we got really excited. This is Krabi’s first Thai cookery school, which attracted over the years many students and apparently Gordon Ramsey as well! We opted out for the evening session and we... More

This turned out to be a great way to spend an afternoon. Ya and her staff were brilliant- knowledgeable and fun. The day is well organised and I will definitely be trying to recreate some of the dishes at home. Hopefully they will be same same but different!

April 24th, 2015. What an excellent afternoon! Am travelling thailand solo and would highly recommend this to anybody else travelling solo. Ms Ya made me feel very welcomed, ensure we were all introduced and new what country we were from. Told us about herself and some very funny jokes about her life experiences. She taught us to cook 12 dishes... More

My family loved the cooking and eating. They found Chef Ya to be wonderful, patient, and articulate. The place is very hard to find, so they are used to picking up students. If you like to go on your own, don't entrust your smartphone with the address. Google is wrong on half the addresses in the area. For actual location... More

Cholaya “Ya” Laothong’s Thai cookery school is hidden away in a leafy suburb behind touristy Ao Nang, and her school is adjacent to her house, in a large open pavilion. Ya introduces herself to us in our work area of shiny stainless steel worktops and wok burners. She recounts her life experiences, some of which are extraordinary, and her warm... More

Myself, my friend and 3 of our kids took this class. It was great! Ya is interesting and informative. I learned so much, We were picked up at our hotel and driven to the school. It is an outdoor covered kitchen with tons of work space. We started with curry pastes from scratch-so much fun. You get to take home... More

My newly wed wife and i went there after seeing a travel show on television in Australia. While on our honeymoon, we booked the afternoon session for the cooking school. We were the only two there in the class so we got one-one-one with mrs ya herself. She was the loveliest woman and the food we made surpassed any thai... More

Had a wonderful time with Ya at her cooking class. Have been to other classes in the past but this was the only one where we were taught how to make fresh curry pastes - all the colours of the rainbow. Now understand all about chop, chop then bang bang. So much food, so much fun cooking it. Novices as... More
