    Amazing, Niti was so enthusiastic and explained everything so clearly and with passion! Just don’t be intimidated by the number of chillies they put - feel free to put less in your own food :)

    Kiki hosted our cooking class, which we enjoyed a lot! The food was very nice and the way Kiki explained everything was really nice. We will also receive the recipes through email, so we can show off our new cooking skills back home! Would definitely recommend!

    A great experience to cook thai meals. Mam was really great, enthusiastic, willing to explain the differences between the spices, fruits, vegetables which were new and gave us a lot of cooking tips. It was pretty easygoing having Mam by our side. Cannot wait to get the cooking book and try to cook thai cuisine back home. Really recommend this tour!

    My boyfriend and I booked a morning Thai cooking class for Sunday June 26th and we were the only two students that day which actually was quite nice. The class was led by Aek and I have nothing but nice things to say about him. I am grateful that he proceeded to still continue the class even though it was just the two of us. Aek was funny and a great teacher. We even got the chance to meet his new baby! Thank you Aek for making our last day in Chiang Mai such a memorable one. I hope to be back soon and will bring some friends along with us to attend your class.

    Had much fun cooking at the smile organic farm! The taste of the food was good and the farm is beautiful. Our teacher Nathalie did a great job teaching us :)

    Had the best day at Benny’s home cooking class! I have been travelling for 4 months, but this one definitely one of the best classes / tours I have done. Everything was perfect, down to the small details. Benny was so lovely, generous and accommodating and made us all feel at home. I can’t recommend this enough! If you want to learn how to cook some amazingly tasty dishes, and also have a great day out in a beautiful setting, sign up for this class!

    The Cooking School was a brilliant experience. The setting was lovely, teacher Oun speaks good English and did the teaching very relaxed and with humour. He teaches not only how to make it, but also all the differences in vegetables. After each round you can eat your own cooked food. And if you ar full, you can take al the leftovers home in a doggy bag. Afterwards you will get a small book with all the ingredients and recipes.

    It was very fun to learn new recipes and techniques. Oun and his wife makes you really feel comfortable.

    The instructor was awesome and had a great sense of humor. At first didn't think a cooking class would be for me but this cooking class I loved. The food was great and the instructions were clear. There is a pretty big selection of popular thai dishes that you can choose from. The meal I cooked honestly tasted better than everything I tried in Thailand so far! This was once of my highlights in my Thailand trip. After the class was over he dropped us off. He called me about 15 minutes later telling me I forgot my water bottle. To me this was no regular water bottle it was my huge metal Yeti water bottle that I most definitely did not want to lose. He went above and beyond and dropped off my bottle at the place we were staying at. If I could I would rate this a 20/10. I highly recommend this place to everyone. If you think a cooking class is not for you I guarantee you taking this class will change your mind!

    It was an amazing experience, Permpoon was knowledgable, friendly and a great host. After selecting our menu, he talked us through the market and was full of fun facts. We then went to his school where he showed us his amazing collection of ingredients grown at home. We picked mushrooms, herbs and beans ready to be used in our cooking. There was tea, coffee and water available. We made soups, pad Thai, curry paste, curry, sides and mango sticky rice. It blew away our expectations, the setting was amazing, Permpoon was helpful, guiding us through each step and teaching us handy tricks. We would strongly recommend to anyone staying in Chiang Mai! Our favourite experience in Thailand so far!

    Benny was amazing! She let us handpick the menu items that we wanted to learn and she had the perfect balance of instruction, and let us take action and try cooking after watching her. The food was amazing! I especially appreciated how much of the ingredients we used were local from her very own garden, all organic. We loved our whole experience. She even sent us home with so many ingredients so we could try cooking at home ourselves. She also sent us home with a ton of fresh mango for our baby at home. We loved this so much! We would definitely do it again.

    We spent a very enjoyable morning with this cooking school. The staff were kind, friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, we made 5 dishes and we left feeling very full. Suitable for both adults and children. My family and I enjoyed it very much. Fully recommend

    This is a long due review of my experience sometime back in october of 2019.
    Chef/Host spoke perfect english.

    The experience began with the driver picking us up at the hotel in the morning. We met our chef at the market, and he gave a personal tour of the local market + sampling of the local snacks.

    After that, we went to his kitchen, where we are given a close up demonstrations before we were given the time to do our own.

    There is no shortcut involved, we all pounded the spices ourselves and completed the dishes, which were surprisingly pretty easy to cook!

    We had a lovely time participating in the activity followed by our self-cooked lunch. The activities were well organized and i would truly recommend this experience to all.

    The good people at Silana have also gave me a few hard copies of the recipe, which i am so thankful for, as i had used them to recreate the easy to prepare dishes just last week, thus remembering that i have yet to give them a review.

    Hope you good people stay strong through this pandemic and continue to share your joy for cooking once the world reopens (:

    I had a half day class with Air and made Course B - two soups and stir fried chicken. I had a great time at the class and would love to come back and take the other course as well. Air picked me up at my hotel on time and took me to a market for a tour and to buy some fresh mushrooms and herbs to use in our cooking. Then we went to his house where he has the most amazing outdoor kitchen with several cooking stations. As was common during my January 2022 trip, I attended the class solo. However, Air was willing to teach a class for one person without charging a supplement. Everything was well organized and his assistant did the all the prep work of cleaning the fresh ingredients and chopping the chili peppers. I left with a better understanding of the base ingredients in Thai food and especially the hot and sour soups. I also have a cookbook and apron to remind me of my class and channel my inner Air when I try Thai cooking at home. As a former tour guide and chef, Air had the teaching skills, history knowledge, and easily understood English to make a great class. I highly recommend.
