I am an experienced cook but not with Asian food. I wanted to do the course and persuaded my husband and teenage children to come along with me. We all had a great time and learnt six new dishes each. We chose to do different things in the choices section so between us we did about 12 different dishes. Teacher... More

The chefs are skilled, but funny and approachable. They speak English, Thai and Chinese. The teachers were very patient with my 8 year old son. Both he and i learned so much in just a morning session. My Thai husband sends his thanks as my cooking has improved 100%. What a lovely experience in a beautiful setting.

This was one of the highlights of Chiang Mai for me. You choose which dishes you want to cook before you arrive. I'd suggest if you're in a group, choosing a mix so that you can try everything. There were six of us doing the course and everything was very professional and prepared. We were asked about allergies and food... More

Came here on a recommendation from a friend who came years ago. They are so wonderful! Very friendly and funny! We were a little concerned about it being a stressful experience, but the chefs put everyone at ease. It is rare to find someone who is both an incredibly experienced chef and a very good teacher, as Richy (our instructor... More

Really great , Sam is a great instructor . Worth the money. Probably No 1 thing I did in Chiang Mai . Came here with my girlfriend, she was vegetarian and they were really able to accommodate no problems. Even had mushroom sauce to substitute for oyster sauce.

We did the afternoon class with Sam and had a great time. There were 10 of us in the group, male & female, singles, friends & couples. Stopped at the market then arrived at a stunning location for the class. A good class for not-so-serious cooks. Easy to understand, had a few Changs & some laughs as we went. You... More

This is a brilliant cooking course. We had Sam as our instructor and he was extremely funny and we learned so much from him. He has excellent English. There was absolutely loads of food and the location is amazing. We watched the sun set over the mountains. The cooking school is incredibly clean and well run. Highly recommend this cooking... More

Was such a great experience. Richy was very helpful and made it a lot of fun. All got to choose whichever dishes we wanted and there was so much food. Would highly recommend to anyone . Amazing setting on the farm too, so close to chaing Mai.

Fabulous time. We learnt about Thai ingredients during our trip to the market and then cooked and ate later. Our sons (12 and 13) thoroughly enjoyed this experience and now we've returned to the UK we've actually put our new found skills into practice. Great venue too, overlooking the paddy fields!
