My partner and I booked a cooking lesson for two hours at May Kaidee's. It was a great lesson, lots of fun, fresh ingredients and we're definitely following up with our "homework" to make our own Thai meals back at home. The teacher had good English and a fun, spirited attitude. We made vegan tom yum sauce and soup, and... More

My cousin and I went for the half day Thai cooking class at the May Kaidee's cooking school in Bangkok. If was one of the best experiences ever! The restaurant is located in a backlane off the famous Khao San Street, and the directions on the cooking school's website are very accurate. We didn't have any trouble locating the place.... More

I booked this for my family of 7 after reading many positive reviews. We were aware that it was in a shoddy ghetto location but did not mind that to have the experience. We were looking forward to meeting the warm, funny instructior who teaches you even to sing while cooking. We were the only ones in the pm class... More

We apologize that your experience was not the one we normally provide our students. It's clear to us now that Patty was not feeling well that day and should not have taught your class. Rather she should have excused herself and allowed you to cancel or reschedule your class. In the past she has been given high marks from students... More

Did the morning class and despite being jet lagged was SO worth getting up for. Noo Dee taught us for most of the class - he was patient and hilarious and an all round great teacher. There were 5 of us altogether which felt like a perfect size. The dishes we made were so quick and easy but tasted delicious... More

I made an appointment at May Kaidee's and was unable to make it due to my travel schedule; they graciously allowed me to reschedule and add two additional students! Once we arrived, we were greeted by May Kaidee who is lovely, passionate about her culture and cooking, warm and inviting! Not only did we create several dishes from her cook... More

Out of everything we did in Thailand, this experience was the best. May's positive spirit was so contagious. Everything we made was INCREDIBLE and easy to do. I found the class very organized and the setting intimate. May gave so many alternatives to ingredients and tips to use. I can't wait to get started on these dishes at home!

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
