We were picked up from our hotel at 4 and brought to the market first to see the various vegetables and spices used in Thai cooking. As someone who likes to cook Indian & Thai food this was a really nice experience and we were able to pick up loads of herbs and spices to take home with us. Following... More

This school got the balance just right between market visit, teaching us about ingredients and actual cooking time. They also gave us a choice of what we wanted to learn to cook. Along with a cook book covering everything they offer. A half day is fine to get a good basic knowledge of 4 Thai dishes of your choice and... More

Did a half day afternoon/evening cooking class. The company picks you up from your accommodation then you go around the market and find out about different Thai ingredients. Great choice of dishes to make and Vegetarian options available. Class fast paced and a lot of fun, food delicious and you get a recipe book to take home. The instructor also... More

I have previously had a half day cooking experience in Hoi An last summer as something to compare this to, but it seemed that this really was a shoddy experience. The lady who organised the trip was lovely and she gave us a talk about ingredients at the market, which was nice. However, we arrived and were not offered a... More

Good way to kill half a day if you want to learn about the key ingredients that make Thai food so addictive and if you want to learn how some of your favourite dishes are put together. At 1,000 Baht for a "full" day (9.00-2.30), the actual instruction is a bit limited and if you're a complete novice, the knives... More

Had a great time at the school! We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the local market to buy our ingredients, then taken to the cookery. There was a great variety of local dishes to make. The day was well organised and great for a rookie cook like myself. The instructors were great, we had such a... More

Today we spent some hours with Baan Thai Cooking school. Our two teenage daughters and we had a great time learning about ingredients for 6 wonderful meals. Because they offer dishes to pick from everybody was happy - we just had one major problem: we were not hungry enough!! After Noon took us to a local market we saw the... More

The instruction was great - we made almost everything they provided rather than throwing all of the ingredients in the wok. They give you a cookbook so you can remake their recipes. A small thing I didn't like is they make you take off your shoes before coming in, and I wasn't wearing socks. My feet felt so gross by... More

My family had a great time learning about the food and spices in the market. The cooking school was professionally run, well organised and clean. The food was amazing and the selections available meant that all members of our family could choose their favourite dishes. We did the half day and that was plenty, we were bursting at the end....
