The school was started by three friends who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine. « less

We were picked up from our hotel on time by Kong and after collecting a few other 'students' made our way to the school, a private house with cooking stations outside and a classroom and dining area inside. We selected the dishes that we wanted to cook and had time to get to know our fellow students (a great bunch... More

This was the last activity on our trip and on this trip, we did save the best for last. This cooking school is a lot of fun, informative and very well organised. Apart from recipes, we learnt about various ingredients and cooking techniques which will be useful for Thai and other cooking. The teachers were very entertaining, accommodating and used... More

With so many things to do and limited time; we were on the fence about doing a cooking school while in Thailand but we are so happy we did after our afternoon with the Thai Orchid Cooking School. Our hosts were great and it proved a really enjoyable afternoon. They take you to the market and you get to see... More

This cooking class was fantastic! "A" picked us up on time from our hotel, at the agreed upon time, and brought us to their home, which coincidently is where the cooking class is located. The equipment were well organized, clean, and well set-up. A & Kong both were very good at teaching the participants how to cook Thai cuisine. The... More

My day at Thai Orchid Cooking School was the best on my trip so far! I love the fact that I got to choose myself what recipes I wanted to learn - that way I could pick my favourite thai dishes. 'A' and her colleague were friendly and very pedagogic. They also gave individual tips to suit my specific "needs",... More

I did the lunchtime class with three friends. The instructors are a Thai couple who run the school themselves. They were incredibly friendly, welcoming and professional. They explained the preparation of each dish very well. Their school consists of three rooms: a dining room (with AC), a kitchen (outside but shaded) and a classroom with a mirror (with AC) on...

Well worth it you learn real Thai food and the people running it make it more enjoyable. Ai & Kong were friendliest people i have ever met, explained things clearly and were amazing cooks. The ingredients were fresh and high quality so the food we cooked turned out brilliant. We learned six meals, also included knife skills, presentation tricks and... More

I have done a lot of searching about the cooking schools and finally I chose Thai Orchid.  I must say my choice is 100% correct.  Thanks all who have shared your great experience in Thai Orchid. The tutors can speak good english.  It is easy to understand and catch up even u know nothing about cookery.  They take care each... More

Our family of 6 certainly enjoyed the time we spent at the Thai Orchid Cooking School. Everything from pickup to drop off was flawless. We were asked to choose one of three different menu items for each of the six dishes we prepared and also toured a local market to learn more about the items we were cooking with. We... More

"A" and her staff were well organized. Her recipes and techniques are awesome. Recipes were easy to learn and even better eating the results!! A must "to do" in Chiang Mai. The trip to the market was very informative too!
