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.

In seven trips to Chiang Mai this is the seventh cooking school I've attended, and so far this one is my favorite. Clean, organized, well-run and fun! We each got to choose among a variety of appetizers, curries, stir-fries, soups, and desserts, rather than a set menu per day. We were given extras, including an exotic fruit sampling, and a...

A and Kong are the most welcoming and friendly people! We found the school on tripadvisor while in a bar planning our 3 days here. We discovered it was only 1 street away so decided to walk by. After seeing the 'school' (its actually A's home) and having been welcomed by A we decided to take the course. Best day... More

My 4 years son traveled with me. Thai orchid cookery accepted my reservation while the other rejected me due to my son. A & Kong are nice and kind. The environment is also lovely. I did enjoy cooking over there.

Without repeating the glowing reviews this place slready has I simply stress how great this day was. Fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable staff, lively setting and a great way to meet a few fellow enthusiasts. You don't see this place advertised anywhere in Chiang Mai. Its reputation speaks for itself! Thank you "A" and Kong! 😁

We found the thai orchid via tripadvisor and really just wanted to added our voice to all the others who say how fantastic it. The owners were informative, friendly and made the day run seamlessly without ever putting any pressure on you to finish. Massively impressed with their knowledge of thai food and their suggestions for alternative produce when we... More

A and Kong run a really professional cookery class in a charming and practical way. Full of tips and hints for when you are trying this at home and so much information that you feel as though you know what you are doing! We all chose what dishes we wanted to make, so everyone cooked a different 5 Course Meal... More

Friendly and delirious cooking class. The market tour was informative. The chef's are familiar with ingredients available back home, and suggests good substitutions.

This company is a well oiled machine that allows you to learn a ton while enjoying every moment. They make you feel like a pro and are very good at accommodating everyone's skill level and tastes.

This was an awesome cooking school. The school is extremely well organized from the bookings to the class. Everything was hands on. The instructions were simple and easy to follow. They take you step by step and cook first what you will make and then you get to try to recreate it. And the results were delicious. We loved the... More
