If you are from Malaysia and you know some basic in cooking, then you are advised not to go. The things are more or less the same. Amok fish = Otak-otak Beef lok lak = Fried beef with oyster sauce Spring roll = the same, just the portion of yam is more tada.... u know how to cook as well... More

The first good sign that I did not see in cooking classes in Siem Reap at tourist cooking classes? They let us see the prahok and the fish sauce. I know it might disgust some people, but it isn't really authentic Khmer food without it. Smells awful, makes food taste great! Nary is adorable and speaks little English (and is... More

We did a cooking class at Nary's kitchen. Toot, who is more a relaxed and funny guy than a teacher, showed us the market with its large amount of different fruits, vegetables fish and meat. There we bought the stuff we needed to prepare three traditional cambodian meals: beef lok lak, amok and spring rolls. With Toots wife Nary we... More

Two of us did this cooking class with Nary and it was excellent. Nary has been cooking for many years and she clearly has a love of cooking and is an excellent teacher.. From the moment we started we knew we were in good hands. I love food and cooking and under Nary's guidance we cooked 3 really delicious meals... More

If you make the cooking course at Naris Kitchen you will meet Toot, the man of the house. He speaks english very well and can tell you a lot of things about cambodian cuisine. His wife Nari is the chef and makes awesome food! After the cooking course, we ate all our further meals in Battambang at Naris kitchen, just... More

What a lovely couple! Such great teachers, so patient and enthusiastic about Khmer cooking. The market visit was definitely an exciting part of the class, fascinated by all the different foods, some we had never seen before! So much fun cooking with Nary, what a beautiful lady with a great love for cooking! We made some amazingly flavoursome food for... More

If in Battambang, don't miss this Nary's cooking class. One of the highlights of our trip to Cambodia. Lessons take place in the morning and in the evening, and last about 3 hours. First, you'll visit the local market where you learn all about local herbs, spices & vegetables (very informative). Back in the kitchen (featuring nice workbench & clean,... More

We had a great time doing this class. Toot was happy to organise the class even though there were only going to be the 2 of us. As other reviewers have said, at the beginning you go to the Market to buy some of the ingredients. This was a really good way to see all the different kinds of foods... More

Did the cooking class on a whim and had a brillant time. Me and my girlfriend found the market in the morning really informative and interesting, toot explained all the different veggies, spices and showed us the local fish (snakehead). Headed back to narys to start class, they were very polite and showed the processes of each dish. We did... More
