Best place for the cooking lessons in Thailand!

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.

Ya our teacher has an incredible background and a one in a kind personality. The class is dynamic and didactic and Ya and his amazing staff will be always there really attentive and supportive. You will take knowledge about Thai food home, some food and a full belly to go as well. Incredible experience that you can not miss.

Anyone visiting Krabi, whether interested in cooking or not should try this class. Chef Ya is interesting, funny and really makes you feel welcome. The recipe options are great and the results are fantastic. You will leave stuffed. Ya is also happy to make the recipes vegetarian/vegan friendly.

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!
