We were picked up at our hotel and together with two other persons we did this class. First we prepared a couple of courses (you can choose for every course 3 different options) and cooked them. Then we ate everything and began to make the rest of the food. Cat was our host and her English was pretty good. She... More

One of my favorite activities on my trip. The host chef was awesome and funny. Had lots of fun cooking with him and he gave us great instruction in English. Also, they had a great spread of choices for cooking. I recommend this if you're on the fence.

We were able to choose 4 different things to cook then eat. It was so fun! Kiki was the best cooking instructor we could have asked... More

We had been looking at doing a class for a while and we decided to choose smart cook. It was great. We got picked up straight from our guest house so there was no need to worry about travel. When we arrived you get to select 7 of the many dishes that are on the menu. Even if you select... More

This was one of our best nights in Ao-Nang! We rang in the morning and it seemed they were full up. However they said they had a second school that they would take us to! We were picked up from our Villa (it was pretty hard to find so this was a good start) and promptly were taken to the... More

A really fun evening, food and the instructor were amazing, able to answer any questions we had. We didn't manage to eat all the food so it was packed up for us to take away at the end, well worth a visit.

My friend and I booked the 2-8 pm course but we finished early at 4 because we were the only ones there... So we got a private cooking class! We cooked 6 dishes and they were all so so so good. Really enjoyed the food. Because it was way too much for us, we got a to-take-away bag to finish... More
