We booked on the website and chose 4 dishes - they all turned out great! Chef Sonthaya Klaewnoi was very professional, friendly, patient, and spoke perfect English. We chose it because of the great location and the small class size. Highly recommended for all levels.

My wife and I took a cooking class with Chef Sonthaya during a rainy morning during our stay at the Dusit Thani.

We were the only 2 in the class and they are usually limited to 4 to ensure that it is not too crowded.

We prepared 3 dishes, you can do 4 if you wish for a few extra baht. Chef Sonthaya was very patient with us and showed us how to prepare properly. He took the time to explain each ingredient and how it is used. He is happy to go at whatever pace you need.

Our dishes (green curry, masaman curry and pad Thai) all tasted excellent, probably down to all the fresh ingredients and Chef's guidance rather than our skills!

We learnt so much in a short space of time, that we can use going forward. Chef Sonthaya awarded us certificates and gave us the recipes for each dish so we can practice at home.

I cannot recommend this class highly enough. Thank you Chef Sonthaya, we had a great time!

Myself and a friend booked this cooking class for our first afternoon in Krabi. Sonthaya picked us up from our hotel and took us to his kitchen which was clean and ready for us to start cooking. We were the only two in the class which was great, and we chose 4 dishes in advance to cook so all the ingredients were prepared on our arrival (most other cooking classes we have done in other countries don't allow choice of what to cook so this felt really personalised). Sonthaya advised how we could modify the dishes to our own taste with the amount of spice, salt etc. At the end he gave us recipe cards with the dishes we had made and a certificate. All the dishes we made were delicious and made fully from scratch, including curry pastes and sauces. We will definitely be trying to recreate these at home!

Thanks for your review. I hope the dishes you cook at home are as good as the ones you made during the cooking class. I always like to hear about at-home successes. Regards, Chef Sonthaya.

We had the pleasure to experience our first cooking class with Chef Sonthaya. Chef Sonthaya was a great teacher and he introduced us to the Thai cooking with very simple but really tasty recipes. All ingredients were fresh and some of them were coming from the garden behind. We warmly recommend you this place if you plan to attend to a cooking class. The ambience is peaceful and you will have a great moment for sure.

What a great experience! Absolutely wonderful food which would be gourmet if in San Francisco or London, but is totally local, based on what was available at the fresh market that day. The teaching Chef, Khun Ou found his calling in life and his command of English for foodies is impressive.

I highly recommend this experience to anyone interested in learning more about Thai cooking and Thai food in general.

We are so glad that we took the opportunity to spend a morning learning how to prepare and cook 3 delicious Thai dishes. Sonthaya explained everything clearly and made sure we did everything so we got hands on experience rather than watching. The biggest bonus is getting to eat what you have cooked which tasted bloody marvellous! A tour of the kitchen garden was also fascinating. No hesitation in recommending this experience, we can't wait to try our new skills at home. Thank you chef!

We had travel Krabi in late Oct this year. This is an excellent thai cooking experience with Chef Sonthaya, he is a very nice and friendly. He provide flexible schedule for us, due to we have tight schedule in our journey. We learnt the way of Thai cooking as well the ingredient. The most impressive was, he provided private cooking dinner for 4 of us. We highly recommend to take a Thai cooking lesson with Chef Sonthaya when you visit Krabi.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed the class. I hope your two children also learned a bit about vegetable carving. The test of the class will be when you return home and try the recipes at home. Regards, Chef Sonthaya

After spending several days tasting Thai cuisine, we called to book a cooking class to learn how to make all the beautiful food we have been eating. Chef Sonthaya, speaks great English and allowed us to choose the menu. He only allows for small classes so you get specialized attention and can really learn the tips and techniques to cooking wonderful Thai food. He got our young girls involved and we had a great time. The class took about two hours and the food was delicious! We look forward to trying the recipes at home for our friends and family. Thank you!

Thank you for your comments. I hope when you try the recipes at home they turn out well. That's the most important thing about a cooking lesson—it works in your own kitchen. Regards, Sonthaya
