Owner description: Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

“Very Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Took the morning 1/2 day class. Spent 5 hours there. That includes a trip to the market. There were 3 other class members, a perfect sized group. Kong, who owned the school, did a really nice job teaching us Thai cookery.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This was an all day class with a trip to the market, our host kong spoke excellent english and was a really good cooking teacher who passed on so much knowledge about the ingredients and local produce at the market, it was a really fun day and would recommend highly especially for the price

“Excellent service and learning experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We took the four hour evening class with Kong, the owner. We loved it. Everything was smooth and seamless. From dish to dish, every step was well orchestrated for us to have a good time and learn all the secrets of Thai cooking. It was the best pad thai I've had on my trip. Kong impressed us with his chef skills as well as impeccable English- wow! And the knives he sells make great souvenirs and gifts.

“excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We made booking for evening class unfortunately during class there were storm in Chinag Mai so power went down and A and Kong had to stop the class in the middle. However they allowed us to finish our class two days later during day class. Thank you very much again! The market tour was very informative and all the recipes are clear and easy to follow up.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We had a great time at this cooking school. The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. It was such a fun day--from the market visit, to the cooking demonstrations, to the sampling of the food. This is a professionally-run school in a charming local house with great instructors. I would recommend this school for anyone visiting Chiang Mai.
