The half-day cooking class earns 5 stars for great organization, pedagogy, service and recipes. Pick-ups and drop-offs are prompt and the step-by-step instruction works great. Chef instructors and guides speak great English. Great activity for couples or groups who want to chat and catch up, as we did on this family trip. Since I have returned from Thailand I have already made several of the dishes we learned at Siam Rice.

This is the 3rd cooking school we've done in Chiang Mai, and I have to say it was pleasant, but somewhat average. They picked us up on time at our hostel and our first stop was a local market where we learned about the ingredients we would be cooking with. Our instructor spoke great English and was funny and informative, although I thought the tour was pretty short compared to others we've taken. The school itself is in a very local neighborhood, away from tourists and the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai. We opted for the half day morning class for 700B per person. With that option we chose 3 dishes to cook from the soup, noodle and curry categories. While they were more options to choose from in each category than the other classes we have taken, we only cooked 3 dishes, and the other schools offered 4. There are options of staying longer, however, which would allow you to cook more dishes. At the end you're given a cookbook, which is just a bunch of recipes printed on computer paper tied together with cute string. Overall it was fun, but average compared to others in the area.

We have done many trips in S.E Asia and this is still the most fun we had. We did the evening cookery class. The guide had us laughing the whole time and the food was so tasty after. Great value. Highly recommended.

You don't have to worry how innocent you are to cooking, the instructor will teach from the very basic and always watch out if you are not in the right way. Empty stomach is a must and you can get a detailed recipe with pictures beside each ingredient. It's not a issue if yo come alone cause the ambience always keeps a team. But maybe couples or groups will be more fun.

We learnt to cook 7 dishes on this course, and we had such a great time. For the full day course, we were in a small group of four and so got a lot of one on one contact. We even learnt how to carve a flower out of a carrot! The guy running the class was funny and really knew his facts. He kept us laughing the whole day and at the end we even got a certificate and a free recipe book. Definitely worth it!
