Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family 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.

This is a great place to learn a little Thai cooking - we couldn't have been happier. A & Kong are a married couple who share the teaching duties. They go out of their way to cater to everyone's food needs - vegetarian, no seafood, no pork... Whatever you need, they help you prepare it just for you. And it... More

An amazing experience learning how to cook traditional Thai food. Kong was amazing, very funny and patient. He took us to the local market and patiently explained what each fruit and vegetable was... he taught us how to cook thai 6 dishes which luckily we got to eat after. I loved it! Unlike other tourist traps you find around Chiang... More

My husband and I had an amazing time on our day with A and her family at Thai Orchid. Between the cooking and the trip to the market, we learned so much about Thai food and culinary culture, and enjoyed the company of people from all over the world. I even learned the secret to why Thai people don't get... More

I have just spent the day with A and Kong at the Thai orchid cookery school. What a fantastic experience, the course was well organized and good attention was paid to food hygiene and providing each person with assistance and direction as required. We were well looked after throughout. I was traveling solo, the course is restricted to even numbers... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this course! Kong was so knowledgable and patient (especially with me, since I don't normally cook). If you want to learn how to make delicious, traditional Thai food..this is it! Kong was so accommodating because my husband is allergic to dairy and he made sure that there were substitute ingredients for him. I highly... More

Did the full day course. It was a great experience, instructor was very engaging and knowledgeable, food was delicious (definitely don't eat breakfast before hand), and the market tour was a nice addition. Definitely recommend this for those visiting Chiang Mai

A fantastic day at orchid cookery school. I went today with my 9 yr old son. Altogether there were 10 of us. The family hosting couldn't be nicer and they were so patient and helpful. I actually decided to cook a completely different menu from my son which meant quite a few times we were cooking apart as one or... More

A is incredible. She takes you through 5 traditional Thai dishes, all of which you get to choose and cook yourself. She taught us some good tips and tricks about Thai cooking and a visit to the market was an interesting way to learn how produce for cooking is traditionally bought. If you love Thai food and want to feel... More

This family run cooking school does everything right: immaculately clean workspaces, fresh ingredients, and a relaxed day in A & K's home. None of the instructions are overly complicated and the cooking techniques that A teaches practically guarantee success. The trip to the produce market is a nice break between cooking, and let's you move a bit before continuing to... More

My wife really wanted to learn how to make Thai food while we were visiting Thailand and we had heard that chiang Mai was the place to learn how to do it. We booked by phone with Thai orchid a week beforehand (advisable to do this since they are so popular), and luckily managed to get a spot. They picked... More
