Awesome experience. Had a great evening learning some of the basics of Thai cooking. Our class of 6 was led by Wit, who was an excellent teacher and took time to explain clearly the individual ingredients and walk us through the cooking processes. I was a little apprehensive about going (will it be any good?, what if the other people... More

Venue needs a face lift, but the staff and lesson were great. Honestly, couldn't recommend them highly enough. Tip: Choose a session with a menu you're willing to eat - we noted that another couple didn't choose so wisely and were dissatisfied with the food they had cooked as a result (don't go for a curry session if you don't...

W booked the afternoon cooking class. As we arrived we found out the other group had rearranged and were no longer joining us. So we were lucky enough to have a one to one session with our chef 'Wit'. He showed us how to make spring rolls, a spicy prawn salad, and a Massaman curry. We began the class going... More

Our teacher Wit was absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. The ingredients were all fresh, and the kitchen is kept very clean and safe to work in. The food we produced was delicious and each person... More

I had the opportunity to study at SITCA for 6 full days. The school exceeded all my expectations for its professional culinary course. The school is extremely professionally run and works like clock work. Not a beat is missed here. It's destined in a way where you are able to excite 7-10 dishes within a day. The ingredients are accurately... More

I cooked and my sister came along to watch and eat - probably the best way to do it and get value for money. She got to listen in and watch the whole demo and cooking, and join in the eating ( everyone cooks enough for at least two people) - but we only had to pay for one person.... More

Expensive however why not learn a new skill. On phoning to book , no prices were discussed until I had booked my three day course... More

SITCA has been in business since 1999. Since that time we have printed and distributed many thousands of copies of several different iterations of our brochure. There are sure to be old ones still in circulation in hotel lobbies and at tour offices etc. We cannot control this. Never have we, nor would we ever engage in false advertising. It... More
