Chef LeeZ led a warm, informative hands-on class.Before beginning, we toured the market from which many of her ingredients came. Our party included two eleven year olds who were rapt and involved. Recipes allow transfer from her kitchen to ours!

Chef Leez cooking is just a try out actually, coz Ive been coming to Bangkok every now and then but never been to her area and never tried any cooking class. So much to my surprise that I was the only student today since it’s a monday. But that didn’t became a hindrance, I had the great chef all to myself today.

True to her website statements of 12 recipes in 4hrs, we even finished earlier by 30mins. All the extra food from the class was packed and brought it home for everybody to try. I love how she easily explqins things and in a more practical way. The touching stories from her Grandma will make you double miss your own. For me its all 5 stars recipe and cooking style! I love how she explained everything specially all the practical tips. Thank you Chef Leez, and thank you for taking an extra mile accompanying me to the boat taxi station. More power and blessings to your cooking career and to your own cooking school as well. For those reading now, try it now and you will never regret it!

Yes, it is true our class minimum student requirement is 1 student! Thailand's #1 cooking class now for over 12 consecutive years! More than 1700 organic 5-star student reviews have earned us the #1 ranking! Our signature 12-dish class is the only cooking class that teaches 12 dishes in a single class! That would take 3 classes elsewhere.

The few hours with Chef LeeZ were amazing. She welcomed my wife and I into her home kitchen like family. The time spent with her was welcoming, informative, joyful ,and delicious. The elements of Thai cooking extend beyond the kitchen and touch the very essence of the culture of this great country. I highly recommend this experience but only if you come with a desire to learn, work (it is hands on) and listen. Thank you Chef!! We will be back.

At Chef LeeZ everyone is welcome! You will find vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians, meat lovers, families with children, people with food allergies and people who just don't eat this or that ingredient in nearly every class. Our signature class is our 10 AM 12-dish class. That takes 3 classes elsewhere. We have delivered our 12-dish class since 2008 to over 20,000 students! Trip Advisor has ranked us by our more than 1700 5-star reviews as the no. 1 cooking class in Bangkok for over 12 consecutive years! We look forward to seeing you in class next time you are in BKK.

l eflt really at ease attending this Thai cooking class. Chef Leez was excellant and very informative. It was a very light hearted approach to learning how to cook Thai and gave a lot of background info and details about how to cook Thai food. Her facilities were also very good with lots of hands on prep and cooking. Great experience

This cooking class was incredible! Chef LeeZ is so personable and knowledgeable. The class was small and we had so much one on one attention.

I am a vegetarian and she adapted the recipes so wonderfully! The dishes you learn are all so delicious and she makes it so easy to learn- I have been home for three months and can now make the most delicious pad Thai!

I strongly recommend that you book this class while in Bangkok! It’s so worth it.

Also, take a grab taxi there- the easiest way!

Last year I did the Thai cooking class solo with Chef LeeZ as my timings and day was not on a regular class schedule. Chef LeeZ was very accommodative to spend time with me and teach nuances of Thai cooking. She also adjusted her class based on my preferences and food allergies. She is so lively & fun to learn with that I actually felt bad when the class was over. I also got the access to her website full of delightful recipes. Now I cook Thai food very regularly & confidently. if you are in Bangkok, please do yourself a favor & register for her class. I promise it will be very learning and delicious time spent in Bangkok. Can’t wait to visit this lovely chef again. I wish her all the success for future.

Hundreds of reviews claim the food they made in class to be the best Thai cuisine they have ever eaten. Hundreds more say it was the best cooking class they have ever attended. Still, hundreds more speak of the class experience as being their trip highlight. We are Thailand's lowest cost per dish taught cooking class at less than 200 baht per dish. Learn 12 dishes in a single hands-on from scratch just like grandma made it class. That takes 3 classes elsewhere. Trip Advisor's Thailand #1 cooking school is in Bangkok. #1 every year since 2011. Our average class is 8 or fewer students. Yet we hold Trip Advisor's cooking school World review record every year since 2014. The canal boat experience is an after class student option. Every student receives FREE access to our online recipe book of 70+ recipes and how to videos. If you can't come to us in BKK you can now take a Chef LeeZ online live virtual cooking class from the convenience of your kitchen.

If you want an authentic cooking experience chef Lee is for the serious person looking to learn old school cooking techniques. I’ve been to her class several times and experienced 5 other schools. However chef Lee trumps all other schools by a wide margin.
She is passionate about cooking and a perfectionist at heart.
Not to be missed!
It’s a bit of a trek but worth while. The boat ride back is charming and easy.
Enjoy and learn.

Over 20 years of teaching cooking classes to foreigners have been a great pleasure for me. I am Chef Lee, owner, manager, and instructor! Over 1700 5-star student reviews rank Chef LeeZ as Bangkok's #1 cooking class. Over 95% of all reviews are 5-star! Chef LeeZ is the only class that offers 12 dishes in a single class! That takes 3 classes elsewhere.

The first task was dismantling a whole coconut for fresh cream, milk, and water to make curry. Then we made our own curry paste, and tore through recipes from there. It can't really get more traditional than that. Chef offered lots of advice on how to replicate ingredients and processes in our specific home countries, too. The class was a conversational mix of technically informative and joking fun. I had a great time and learned a lot. You should go. Have lots of battery and storage space on your phone for videos and leave PLENTY of time for travel. If you're early, you may even score a garden tour with herb tastings like I did.

Chef LeeZ cooking class Bangkok classroom is moving back to its 2022 location which is 1.2 km from the classroom with the garden. This means there will be no option for the garden visit. The good news is we will again be offering the market tour. Included with every class reservation is a free membership to our recipe club. Recipe club is where we store over 70 recipes and how-to videos for our students to access online anytime for refreshers on what they took in class and to try out the recipes not taught in class.

Thanks for wonderfully authentic Thai cooking experience Chef Lee! My husband and I dragged our boys (8 and 10) to experience some Thai eating culture much to their disgust. They ended up having a great time and loved the Grandma doesn’t waste anything reference, very relatable!
Looking forward to them recreating these dishes back in Aus. Definitely a taste sensation Lee.

Families with children are welcome in a Chef LeeZ class! Our youngest wanna-be chef students were 3 years old. One was a male and one was female. They did cutting ingredients, cooking, and eating! It's never too early nor too late to learn how to cook! "WHEN YOU KNOW HOW TO COOK YOU WILL NEVER GO HUNGRY FOR FOOD WILL ALWAYS FIND YOU!" See you in a class when next you are in BKK.
