Overview
More
Thai Akha Kitchen is run by Akha people who were born and raised in Thailand. We love Thai food just as much as you! Give us a chance to tell you our story. Our small culture will sooner or later cease to exist and will become forgotten, so this is our chance to pass down our traditions and cooking styles to the world in hope that at least some parts of it will live through people who continue to use our techniques. Akha Food is totally different from Thai Food and is much healthier and fresher. Akha people have a saying: “There are only three things in jungle that you can’t eat, and nobody knows what they are”. In other words, we haven’t found anything that’s not edible yet!

It was fun, there was a lot of food. Get a free cookbook so you can make the dishes at home. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

I don’t think it would be a problem, but I think you can contact them directly and they will take care of your food restrictions for sure!
