Ya picked us up from Sheraton hotel (15 min drive) and we were lucky enough to have her exclusively to ourselves as it wasn't high season. We had our own cooking stations. All ingredients were fresh and prepared by us with Ya and her assistant explaining nutritional/cosmetic purposes of each ingredient. Ya also entertained us with her stories of living... More

(sometimes it can be as large as 16 people Miss Ya said) We got a lot of personal attention, Miss Ya told some great stories and really explained the technique well. The food we cooked we great, really tasty -... More

This was a great experience and we went away having learnt a lot. All the food we cooked was fresh and delicious. The only let down was that there was almost too much being cooked at once and it was hard to keep up on what was going on when we were all cooking different things and the staff were... More

We booked our course for Friday 24th October, and was collected from our hotel by the Cookery School's car, when we arrived there was another couple waiting to start the course with us- so basically we had one-to-one coaching. Course was informative, we learnt about how to bruise the vegetable's first, then chop them correctly, make our own curry paste's... More

AMAZING !! If you come to Krabi and don't do Miss Ya's class, then you are truly nuts. Fantastic food and easy to follow steps with a very funny teacher. 5 stars

If you go to Ao Nang you have to go to meet Miss Ya. It is one of the best experiences you can have in Thailand. She is brilliant, Not matter what age you are, you will have great fun learning to cook Thai food and best of all to get to eat your creations. Next stop Master Chef!

We spent a wonderful afternoon cooking with ya. A group of 5 ladies, we decided to learn the basics of Thai cooking. We learnt so much more from ya. She was warm, eager to teach and simplified everything. Her methods were so clear and concise. She thought us about 8 dishes which are mainstream Thai dishes that we all know... More

I've been to three cooking classes prior to Madame Ya's in Thailand and my experience today at her class was the most fun. The price includes hotel transfers which is great for solo travellers like me. The value for money is great, we (group of 8) all made 6 different dish each but I was so stuffed after the first...

All the family take a class with Ya. She is a very fun lady and we laugh a lot. We learn a lot from Ya and the best part is we get to eat everything when we are finished cooking. Very good fun day, can recommend, great day!
