Top choice for anyone looking to learn how to cook Thai dishes. Great value for money, they taught more dishes at a cheaper price than comparable schools. Our teacher, Yam, was very entertaining and cheery. They pick you up at your hotel, take you to the market to learn about some ingredients which you may not have heard of before,... More

Pickup and drop off is included, instructor was on point and funny. Everything was absolutely delicious and getting to meet other people was so fun. We did the middle half day trip which meant we did not go to the market, and we were satisfied with that decision.

Our day started off by being picked up at our hotel followed by a trip to a local market which was an introduction to the produce we would be using later on. We were able to choose the dishes we wanted to prepare from a large menu, 7 courses in all. We then spent the rest of the day preparing,... More

We enjoy cooking and love Thai food so we wanted to take a cooking class while here but unfortunately, we were only in Chiang Mai for 2 nights so we didn't have time to take the full class so our guesthouse recommended we take an evening class at Siam Rice. The difference is that in the shortened class, you don't... More

I would not recommend this class if you are really interested in cooking. I have followed recipes so have a passing knowledge of Thai cooking. The class size was twelve, not the average of 1-9 people advertised and the instructor spent most of her time trying to get the 6 Chinese students to understand what they were to do. She... More

Our homestay recommended Siam Rice for a cooking class and we're very happy we took their advice. The class is fun, engaging, and the instructor's passion for Thai cooking is infectious.

Loved this activity. We were picked up in small groups and met at a local market where we were briefly explained about local ingredients used to make their dishes. We headed to the cooking school and there we made a soup, a noodle dish and a curry of our choice. It was Sooooooo much fun! Our leader j think was... More

Loved this place!!! I'm a fairly confident cook, and really looked forward to this. It's amazing how easy Thai cooking can be when there is a master chef telling you what to do every step of the way!! This is a great place for novices all the way through pro cooks as the staff is great at showing you how... More

We got picked up and taken to Siam Rice Cooking School. Our songthaew picked up 11 of us in total, from Amsterdam, Slovina, Korea, Hong Kong and Canada. First stop was the market, where from get go, Yam, our hilarious and informative tutor, went through all the standard veg and herbs that are used in Thai cuisine. And drilling us... More
