They awoke the kitchen giant within me!
Feb 2020
I was travelling just before the virus outbreak but the island was already pretty empty. I really enjoyed the food in one of those local restaurants and when I was paying my bill, I realized they showcase the school. Well, if they feed me so well, maybe they can teach me something about cooking too? Brave assumption, as I am not the best chef ever, to say the least. A couple of days later I took the class. It was amazing!!!
The host created such a friendly atmosphere that I immediately immersed in the Thai cooking. It was easy, funny, colorful and tasty! I enjoyed it so much.
My little crew of three (two French lovely ladies joined) quickly decided which 4 out of 10 possible dishes to cook. Then we prepared the ingredients. All fresh, all colorful, all intensely Thai.
The dishes were simply amazing...
The most important thing - after I returned to Europe, I attempted Thai cooking here. And I managed to recreate them!!! Good memories returned...
I recommend this school with all my heart. I mean it.

ps. I tried another school in Ao Nang and Lanta Thai Cookery School takes the lead hands down. Solid lead, that is.

Great experience, great food!

I did the dinner cooking course with Aon. She is a great teacher. We were a group of 3 so everyone got to pick 1 dish and the 4th one we picked together. We made golden bags, chicken satay with peanut sauce, massaman curry & the paste and sticky rice with mango. I was really happy for the dishes we picked. All of them were better than what I have had in a restaurant (that's how great teacher Aon is)! The cooking class was a really nice hands on experience and I can now make better Thai food at home which is great!

Terrific!
Mar 2020
A friend and I went here for an evening class. It was wonderful! It ended up being just the two of us. We were able to pick four dishes to make, but upgraded to 5 for an extra cost. Every dish was absolutely delicious and well explained. They provided a recipe book of every dish, not just the ones you chose. There was wine and beer for purchase as well and free drinking water, tea, and coffee. Beginners to advanced, this class if for anyone. Thank you!

Lanta Thai cookery School was brilliant
Feb 2020 • Couples
We have just had the best afternoon/evening learning how to make some traditional Thai dishes, our teacher was brilliant and it was just the two of us. We only arrived in Koh Lanta at lunchtime, our guesthouse hosts recommended the school and rung them for us, they came and picked us up too which was brilliant. I can thoroughly recommend this cookery school. Just one thing - make sure you are hungry before you go as you get to eat all four dishes you make!

Feb 2020 • Couples
Amazingly cool and funny experience! Pra and her mother are experienced cooks and super informative teachers. We went through 4 different Thai dishes and they gave us a masterclass from A to Z on how to cook, ingredients used, different tips... they even adapted it for me as i was the only vegan in the class!

The BEST time
Jan 2020
This was a top highlight of my entire Thailand trip, much less in Ko Lanta! Attending the class on Thursday afternoon, my friend and I got picked up from our hotel, and brought to the school, where we then all went shopping for the food we'd be cooking at the local market. (This only happens on Thursdays, so time it for then if you can!) Being led by Prim, the whole class was expertly taught how to make some delicious dishes from someone who had a genuine talent and passion for Thai food. Couldn't recommend more!
