Owner description: Come and visit Lazat Malaysian Cooking School and bring back an authentic taste of Malaysia! Our hands-on cooking classes are held Monday to Saturday and presented in English by entertaining Malaysian instructors. We are located just outside Kuala Lumpur city centre and our school is furnished with purpose made demonstration tables and individual cooking stations. Each day of the week we teach a different ethnic menu and provide detailed explanations of ingredients and cooking methods. Students individually prepare their own 4-course lunch, usually consisting of an appetizer, main course, side dish and dessert. Malaysian cuisine is a unique fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and Baba-Nonya flavors, drawing upon our country's rich history as an historical crossroads for explorers and traders from around the globe. At LaZat our goal is to bring Malaysian cooking to the world by sharing with you our family recipes, which we have savored and perfected over generations.

I attended Lazat cooking class whilst visiting friends in KL. The experience from start to finish was excellent. I had been worried how I would get to the school but Lazat arranged transport to pick me up from the apartments I was staying at and drop me back off at a very reasonable price. I attended the Malaysian Chinese cuisine... More

Depending on which day you go, is what type of food you`ll make. The days/menus are on their website, so pick a day with the menu that interests you most. It was fascinating for me to learn about Malaysian/Nyonya cooking. Not only the cooking but a little about the history. One of my favourite parts was being taken to the... More

This cooking class was great, we had never done one before and throughly enjoyed it. We chose the Wednesday, Malay/Nyonya Special and also did the market trip first which was great to go to where the food is purchased, see other market alternatives. We also got picked up and dropped back to our hotel, which was great as the market... More

i had a wonderful experience at LaZat during my first week in Malaysia of a 10 week work event. It was the perfect introduction to Malaysian culture beginning with a trip to the market and then experiencing a more residential area of KL when we traveled to the school nestled on the edge of the jungle (gorgeous!). Not only did... More

As a rule, cooking classes are not for everybody because it's not enough to just be a foodie; you have to be that fanatical subset of foodie who isn't happy until s/he can reproduce precisely that subtle hint of turmeric that was in that beef rendang. This cooking class is for that type of fanatic. But for such fanatics, this... More

I've always been a fan of cooking classes while traveling so my friend found LaZat as an activity for us to do while in KL. We opted for the pickup option which was really nice to have and was taken straight to the local market. There we met with Sue who explained different ingredients to us - please note you... More

As a group we had an excellent experience here earlier today. I'm a little surprised that someone considered it overpriced? We were picked up at 08:50 from KLCC, taken to a wet market for a tour which was both fascinating and informative. Thereafter, we were brought to the school for our cookery class. We cooked 4 dishes, which we had... More

Suitable for all ranges of abilities. The day really starts well with a tour of a local market. You get a real insight into all the different ingredients, how they are sourced and what they are used for. The location is quite rural, so it's a lovely atmosphere for cooking. The staff are super friendly and helpful, always full of... More

By far the most expense cooking course avaiable... but all we made was wontons, a stir fry and a salad.... couldn't help but feel ripped off! There was no real cooking or skill involved... really disappointing

The day that I chose there were only 3 of us on the course, so we were really attended to. The staff were amazing, I felt more like I was visiting a friend's house than paying to be on a course. Huge fan and would definitely return if in KL again. Would also like to highlight how great Saadiah -... More
