We did this Thai cooking class as an evening activity and I would recommend it to everyone visiting chiang mai for a few days. It's a fun and interesting activity if you are not a too experienced Asian cook. However I can imagine as experienced cook that everything we made was already too much prepared by the staff. But personally... More

We had the evening course and the experience was way beyond my expectation. You learn how to cook several thai dishes in an open kitchen with beautiful rice plantation landscape and the teacher (Pum) is really funny and nice.

We were able to schedule a class last minute, and this class came highly recommended from our tour guide, they picked us up at the hotel, and we drove out to this great location, in a rice patti field. The classroom is such a great location, brand new equipment, great atmosphere. Class was fun, and food was delicious, I am... More

An amazing full day course. Richie picked us up, took us to the local market where we bought fantastic ingredients and was very knowledgable about all the ingredients. He spoke great English, having lived in Sydney for 7 years. He was very concise with cooking directions and made great jokes about cooking, eating and demonstrated food carving and presentation. Richie... More

Cooking schools are big business in Chang Mai meaning high volume. We checked and decided to try this one as it promised smaller class sizes and was located in the countryside. First thing is manage your expectations. The majority of this schools aims for a fun day out with some information on Thai cookery. This is not a high profile... More

Took the evening class with my boyfriend and had an excellent time. The instructor was so friendly and helpful. It is nice that his English is so good because he is able to explain a lot when he takes you to the market to buy ingredients.. We were able to ask a ton of questions! The setting was beautiful. We... More

We had a great time at The Best Thai Cookery School. We started by going around a food market, having ingredients explained to us. We then had some time to buy some things that we wanted to take home (dried fruit etc) while Ritchie, our teacher, bought everything we needed for the class. The actual school is set in beautiful...
