We spent the whole day at the Blue Elephant starting with the first cooking class at 8:30. It started with a visit to the nearby market, which was rather small, good for basic understanding of the ingredient, but the quality of the products are not spectacular. But the cooking class is well organized, and the instructors are really good, they... More

Nice food but it's a tad too expensive given that it's away from main areas and food is averagely good. Not many know of this restaurant..

Heard so much of this place but disappointed with food as they are already 'adulterated' to the taste of the visiting tourists. There are better ones in Bangkok Good service staff & beautiful wooden house.

I have been testing many restaurants around the world now yet I am no excellent chef myself. So I thought why not to start learning. As I am staying in Bangkok I found this place and although I was bit afraid that I will be the only beginner there it wasn't too hard for me. The chef spoke very good... More

Neither my partner nor I are new to Thai cooking at home (he more experienced than I) however, we both wanted to see if we could move our cooking experience to the next level. We were not disappointed as this basic introductory one-afternoon class, offered some of the traditional methods of balances spices in Thai Cooking. From bashing Coriander roots,... More

The chef was very humorous and gave great demonstrations. There were 12 of... More
