I loved learning about all the ingredients and going to the market. There is a fairly big choice of foods that you can learn to cook - you choose an appetizer, a curry, a soup, a stir-fried dish and a dessert. The instructors are friendly, speak good English, are happy to answer questions and take photos of you cooking. You... More

What a wonderful experience cooking school was! I rarely cook at home and the last thing I would call myself is a "Good Cook". Nevertheless, the cooking instructors at Baan Thai were so helpful and knowledgeable. The night began with our trip to the local food market where we got to learn all the names of the items we would... More

I felt like I was on a cooking show on TV! After a little background on the ingredients at the market, we started cooking. Each person selects two appetizers and three main dishes in the evening session. The ingredients were laid out at individual prep and cooking stations for each person to cook their own dish, except we worked together... More

One of the highlights of our stay in Chiang Mai. The staff made you feel welcome and relaxed and their English is excellent. We met & chatted with other people from all over the world. The market experience was great with staff explaining about all the produce and giving us a chance to wander, taking in all the smells &... More

My brother and I took an evening class and loved it. Ying, our instructor was informative and joked around a lot. Before starting to cook we went to the market to learn about the different ingredients in Thai cooking and how they are used, which I found very helpful.By the end of the night we were very sweaty and full....

One of the highlights of our stay in Chiang Mai. We loved every part of the Baan Thai Cookery experience. They pick you up & drop you off at your hotel in a clean pick-up truck (w/in the city). They walk you through the market explaining ingredients, allowing you to buy any other thing you may want, but absolutely no... More

A great cookery class. Just 5 people, a great teacher and wonderful food. We took a trip to the market and got a lot of explanation about the food. The class itself was great. Just a lot of food, so don't eat too much before going to this class!

People at BAANTHAI THAI COOKERY SCHOOL are the most inept, unprofessional, irresponsible Thai people i ever met (don't get me wrong, i admire alot Thai in general). I enrolled at their 'school' last Friday night via my hotel, was informed that Saturday session is full so i opted for a Monday, June 30 class. I was present when the hotel... More

This class was definitely an unforgettable experience for my boyfriend and I. He wasn't so excited about the idea at first but by the end of the day I think he had more fun then I did! The staff were all so so friendly and spoke such good English. They picked us up from our hostel on time where we... More

Really great staff who took time to explain about different ingredients and cooking methods. Relaxed and fun environment to learn how to make authentic Thai food. Really enjoyed the day and have made some wonderful dishes, 6 in total, with 18 to choose from. Great experience and definitely worth doing!
