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.

If you are in kl and want an amazing local cooking experience this is your place. I was born and raised in Malaysia and on our visit my husband had set up a cooking class for us to learn roti canai among other amazing dishes. It was fantastic. My only complaint was I wish we were there longer. Thank you... More

While visiting friends in Kuala Lumpur, we spent the better part of a day with the friendly people at LaZat Cooking School. We started in the morning with a tour of a local wet market. Here, we learned about local produce and got to see a variety of interesting food stalls. We headed over to the cooking school which is... More

My friends and I had such a wonderful day at Lazat. We went first to a local wet market and were shown round by Laty. She took us from stall to stall showing us local produce and explained how these things were used in local dishes. The spice stall owned by Rose was the highlight. She seemed to have tubs... More

I really enjoyed this cooking class, from the market tour before hand, to the cooking itself. Very well organised, helpful and interesting people and amazing recipes.

I had the pleasure of taking this class last week on holiday. The staff is amazing. From the driver who picks you up from your accommodation to program director, to the hilarious grandma-esque cooking staff who were screaming and wielding knives at the hungry monkeys that would come from the near by forest and try to eat the prep food...

I had a fantastic experience at LaZat! Ana, Laty, Sue and the whole team were very welcoming and attentive at all times, and provided great conversation. Their passion for Malaysian cooking is very evident and makes the experience that much more special. The location in the foothills and jungle around KL is spectacular in itself. Whether you're an aspiring chef... More

I attended Lazat cooking school with my mother and sister and it really was the highlight of our trip to KL. The market tour was amazing with our guide Suzie full of enthusiasm and zest. From the lovely warm welcome on our arrival to the amazing dishes we cooked up with our demonstrator Yumi, we could not fault the whole... More

I booked a cooking class for my partner and I as we'd been to KL before but wanted something different to do... This was probably the best decision I'd made for the entire trip. The cooking class itself was really informative with plenty of great tips from Ana and her team. My partner is Malaysian and he loved learning more... More

After many days of shopping and eating in KL, I found the team at Lazat Cooking School professional yet charming in their approach to teaching about Malaysian cuisine. Deanna made us feel welcome from the moment she picked us up in the city and delivered us to Uni at the market. We strolled around the beautiful food stalls tasting and... More

When my parents visited me in Malaysia I was searching for a nice activity in KL and I was already searching for a Malay cooking class. Luckily after some research I found LaZat on Tripadvisor and booked the 'Authentic Malay'-Course. It was the best decision ever! We had a lot of fun, great insights into Malaysian Culture and an awsome... More
