We did the evening course consisting of 4 dishes. It was nice that all preparation was done beforehand. Learned how to make curry, one thai soup, one stir-fried dish, and one appetizer - spring rolls. We got to eat all our dishes in company with other guests, and we were provided with a cooking book of the dishes. Nevertheless, the... More

I didn't have huge expectations going to this however this was one of my favourite things we did while in Chiang Mai. They keep groups small so you can get to know the people and have more 1-1 help if needed. The day was well organised and the trip to the market first was hugely insightful. The staff were great...

Having lived in Thailand for 5 years, there are not a lot of things I haven't done as a tourist. Coming back to show friends around Chiang Mai and help them avoid tourist traps was good. I'd done lots of local touring and treks, but never done a Thai cooking school. At friend's suggestion we signed on for this. I... More

Easy to follow evening class to prepare 4 simple but delicious Thai dishes. Visit to the market was very informative. Our guide was so cheerful and smiley and ready to answer all our questions. VERY structured lesson, totally suitable for absolute beginners or the experienced chef who just wants to have fun. The food was delicious and I can really... More

Did the evening course, the explanation of the ingredients at the local market was kind of boring and difficult to understand but the cooking portion was great. Make sure you go hungry!

A fun evening going to the market to pick up fresh ingredients and then going back to a clean & friendly environment to cook and eat! There were a selection of dishes which could be substituted with vegetarian ingredients if needed. There were three instructors to 8 students so fairly intimate, and could ask questions throughout the process. After cooking... More

An evening of cooking and eating. First let me say go hungry, you will get the option of cooking four courses and eating them. This was an excellent little course in the art of Thai cooking, I thoroughly recommend. The evening started with a trip to the fresh food market with a look at some of the ingredients used in...

Chaiya picked us up from our hotel and first took us to a local market. We walked around and he shared what different things were and purchased some items for our class. Then we went to his school, which is in a lovely garden center with a pond and covered patio with cooking stations for each guest. We had so... More

After eating so much local food, it was wonderful to learn how to cook it ourselves. My friend and I both took the class here. He rarely cooks at home and I cook 4-5 times a week, but we were both able to successfully create the dishes with the help of Baan Thai's staff. We did the half day course... More
