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.

We learned so much about Thai food not just the food we cooked, but about culture and how to look for alternative ingredients. Everything about this course was wonderful: location, instruction, market tour, price and food itself. I would highly recommend this cooking course for anyone.

I did thai cooking school twice before in Bangkok and tried Thai orchid for this trip and I can say, I should come here earlier. A and Kong make the entire class very interesting. You are taught how to cook with the ingredients from the very basic.  Thanks for being the highlight of the trip!

A & Kong are top teachers, somehow remembering the progress of 10 people cooking different dishes and helping each person out as needed. We learned how to make 5 dishes - I chose spring rolls, coconut chicken soup, chicken cashew nut, green curry and thai pancake. My wife made different dishes. There are a few different options for each course... More

I have taken a class at Thai Orchid each time I have visited Chiang Mai during the past six years. The instruction is very good, I get to practice my favorite Thai receipes, and there is always something new to learn. Consistently great value and a satisfying experience. A is always very helpful.

I chose to book Thai orchid cookery school for me and my mom after reading other reviews on TA and we weren't disappointed. There were 10 in our group and we all had a great time. A and Kong were absolutely fantastic, so enthusiastic and funny. They really made the class what it was!

Such a fantastic day - A and her family are so welcoming and helpful we really learnt a lot. The course is structured so well - flexible choices in what you can cook so you can choose things which suit your tastes and tailor the dishes if they aren't spicy enough/ too spicy, how to make them sweeter, sourer etc,...
