I would thoroughly recommend taking up one of the cookery courses with The Best Thai Cookery School. Having spent an evening cooking four courses, I am now able to cook a Thai meal that suits my palate (not too spicy). Our chef Richie was an excellent teacher. We were picked up by minibus and then taken to the local market... More

We researched on trip advisor before visiting Chiang Mai, we booked the full day course. From the outset it was interesting and entertaining. From collection at our hotel to return at the end of the day we had a great time. Looking forward to cooking Thai meals from the cookery book supplied. Thanks to Richie our instructor for the day.

Having paid for our cookery class at best Thai we didn't know to what extent it would be delivered. Firstly, you get taken to the market to see exactly where you're ingredients are coming from and why it is you use that ingredients. Then, you get driven to a local home where you have a large kitchen and some very... More

Collected by mini van and taken to local market for tour, Instructor entertaining and knowledgeable about produce and ingredients. We were then taken to the school about 20 minutes outside of the city, the school is in a small residential village, and has extensive... More

The style this man takes to teaching is brilliant. Very charismatic and good at what he does. We learnt five or six Thai dishes over four hours during the evening course which I would highly recommend as you also get to see the sunset behind the mountains in the distance before making your food. The surroundings are very good too,... More

We saw their website and got interested in the only fruit carving class because we had been to a different cooking class. On the website, their fruit carving class costs 400 Bahts for a group of 2-4 for 4 hours, which we thought pretty cheap! When we called to book, they said the same price but for only 2 hours... More

I joined the class with my gf. We were picked up on time from our hotel in the old city, and arrived a local market to learn about Thai food ingredients. The instructor, Richie, is very friendly, helpful and funny with good english. The class took place in a decent house. It was smooth, fun, and the dishes are in... More

We took a half day cooking class here and learned to make some Thai classics. It was just the two of us and we had great fun. The owner, who is also the driver and teacher, is a wonderful kind man who will show you great food and a great time. I made all vegetarian dishes and vegan was even... More

We did the evening class, and had a great time. The group was small, which meant we got a lot of personal direction and interaction. We spent time in the local market to fully understand the ingredients, and got to make a good variety of dishes. The dramatic fire-style cooking was fun too! The only thing was that the class...
