My partner and had walked past Pum's Thai Restaurant a couple of times until we finally decided to go in and see what they had on offer. This was our first time staying in Patong Beach and we were really keen to do a cooking class but the ones that our hotel had suggested to us didn't appeal to us (they seemed generic and not good value for money). We wanted a real Thai experience. As we walked into Pum's Thai Restaurant and were greeted straight away in a friendly manner. We told the staff we were looking for a cooking class and they showed us a brochure of all the cooking classes they ran. The price was very reasonable and we each got to choose 3 Thai dishes that we wanted to learn how to cook. Alas! We had found the cooking class that we we were looking for. We went back the next afternoon and were in a group of 7 (3 couples including ourselves and 1 other person) so the class that we chose was a good size. After each round of dishes, we all sat down and shared the food amongst ourselves which is also a great opportunity to meet others, and also try things you may not have thought to try before (who would have thought Fish Cakes were so delicious?) Pum was really lovely and was more than happy to answer any questions that you had. At the end we each got a mini cookbook with a few recipes and I still use this cookbook now. Pum even provided her email and encouraged us to email her if we ever had any more questions. I would HIGHLY recommend this cooking class to anyone in Patong Beach (or surrounding areas) who is looking for an authentic, unique thai experience. The next time I visit Thailand I am definitely going back!
