We where lucky, because it was just the two of us, private lesson! If we had booked the next day there would have been 30 kids! We had a... More

We had a great day at Smart Cook cooking school. We were able to choose our own menu from a good selection of Thai dishes. It was very well run. Everything was set out when we got there, ready to go. Our teacher Mint was very friendly and able to help with questions. First we all went to the wet... More

Chose 6 traditional Thai dishes including appetizers, main dishes and desserts. Reached@ their rural farm/kitchen by a short 20 mins train ride which was a new experience as well. The instructors introduced each ingredient around their farm. Each dish was delicious and fun to cook! We enjoyed a bike ride around their neighborhood but was cut short due to a... More

Although I do not personally like to cook, I am so glad that I booked this cooking class. Located in a small organic farm about a 30-45 min drive from the center of Chiang Mai, the class starts by you walking through the vegetable patch and picking out the ingredients you will use for your dishes. They are pretty flexible... More

I was... More

After a little trip to the market to learn about ingredients we began our lesson and had the opportunity to chose 3 different dishes to... More

I was very glad to find a well-rated Thai cooking class that took place in evening hours, so I could spend the day exploring with my family and children but still have the cooking class experience I was craving. The class cost 800 BHT including transportation, and took place at a small home outdoor kitchen in central Chiang Mai near... More

Our instructor was lovely and very informative and helped us cook 3 very delicious meals, followed by some very nice dessert. Would highly recommend - a very enjoyable afternoon/evening class.
