Absolutely loved this cooking class. Took my husband along who never cooks and he actually really enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. The teacher James was fantastic and has a great sense of humor. All the helpers were very attentive, place was very clean and had a amazing beach front view to enjoy our meal.

During our last stay at Phuket my girlfriend and I decided to visit a cooking course, because we are big fans of thai food. We found (via TripAdvisor) the Phuket Thai Cookery school and can fully recommend this company to anybody who is interested to learn some additional skills in asian or especialy Thai cooking.

Everything worked very well. Fast and friendly support by email around our booking, easy and in time pick up at our hotel in Patong Beach and transfer to Phuket town, where we first visited the market to see and learn about the ingredients.

On this day we have been the only customers also we would have wished the company a bigger request by curious tourists (but we were at Phuket during lower season). After finishing shopping we had a transfer to the school itself, which isn´t in Phuket Town, but on the outer skirts of the city directly on the shores of the Indian Ocean! We found a realy nice open air kitchen so while cooking or eating the food, we had a beautiful overview to the turquise sea.
This is a must see, instead of a boring class-room somewhere around in the city.

All instructors are very very friendly, speak perfect English, so understanding is quite easy. Everything is prepared on arrival, the kitchen is clean and nicely furnished. All ingredients are fresh and presented to the pupils in a perfect m manner. It was a joy first to be teached and to try what the instructors were cooking as a lesson and after that seeing that our own attempt was also a total success. We had 5 dishes, from startres, to soup to maincorse and then a desert, which we all will produce at home back in Germany. You can buy some special ingrediants that will last long in your kitchen.

We had a beautiful holiday experience that we will remember often when cooking those dishes at home.

As written in the beginning: We can fully reccomend this experience to any other tourist looking to have a good time at Phuket!

Looked at a few options and choose this one and glad we did. well run and good choice of things to cook. Different menu (5 courses) for each day, with a trip round the market beforehand to see what eh locals buy.

As someone who enjoys cooking this was a great way to learn the way and how Thai's cook. Whether novice or enthusiast, something for everyone…… and you get to keep the recipes.

Definitely one to do if this is your thing

We chose the Phuket Thai Cookery School because we were advised by our tour guide Yvonne that is was the better one to go to. What a great choice. We went to the Thai Markets where the Thai people do their shopping and were shown different foods and how they are made then off to the school. The buses we were picked up in were lovely and the drivers could actually drive. The location of the school was amazing right on the waterfront. James was our Teacher for the day and he made the course very entertaining and fun to learn. We chose the Friday course as that is the food we love to eat in Thailand. The facilities were very clean, food was fresh and plenty of water on hand to drink at our leisure. Great value for money. Thank you James and staff for a fabulous day. We will be back on our next visit.

I highly recommend doing the thai cookery school to everyone. They give you very good instruction in cooking all the meals. You gain confidence in your cooking skills. It's very relaxed and you feel no pressure. It is just a lot of fun. The staff are happy and friendly and very good with their instruction. James the chef is very entertaining and funny. I had a fantastic day and it is well worth it. The food is great.
