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.

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

a very very complete, comprehensive and good cooking class. Mine was Nyonya classics, but they offer different options every day. The place is really far from the city center, but the location is so charming, in the middle of the trees... you can just see nature when you are learning to cook with the really knowledgeable Zaadiah!

This is my fourth review after recently finishing my fourth cooking class in the past three years with LaZat. If there was a wall of fame, I may be on it by now. I just can't say enough about my LaZat experience. Everyone who visits KL should take one of their many cooking class options. You won't regret it and... More

This was a slick operation run by the passionate Ana and her friendly team. From start to finish everyone was made to feel comfortable with food and drink always available. We were collected promptly from our hotel and taken to a local market where a guide showed us around and provided information about traditional Malaysian foods included those to be... More

I was having a stopover in KL for three days on my way back from South India and wanted to do something other then the shopping/touristy type of things. A friend recommended that I attend this cooking class as her, her husband, her SIL and BIL had attended it and had enjoyed it extremely. From the moment I was picked... More

Unique experience, first at the market place where you get to see where the produce for the class is purchased. We were then driven to the class which is located in a very leafy area with an amazing view of parts of KL. The class was well planned out, informative and very hands on. We learnt a lot about ingredients... More
