“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We surely recommend this place! They pick you up at your hotel, go with you to a local market and show you all the ingredients you are going to use (very helpful for us that didn't know most of the things they showed us). Then you go to their place and start cooking. Very easy, for every level. After that, you eat it or take it away if you're not more hungry. They speak really good English, easy to understand them, and they are really nice and helpful people. We love this funny experience (although my boyfriend wasn't convinced at first).

“Great experience cooking in an actual Thai home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

My wife and I were looking for a good Thai cooking class at short notice and we got really lucky finding the last 2 spots at this place. They sent a shared taxi to our hotel and dropped us back (price included in the fee). What we really enjoyed was going to an actual Thai home and learning a few basic Thai dishes there. They also had a trip to the local market nearby before the cooking to show and explain the ingredients.
The class was very well organized and by the end of it, we were amazed at what we could dish out! The only thing missing were beds to nap in after the sumptuous meal!

“Lucked out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Well I think I just chose a bad day to do it. There were only 3 of us, and it was a little awkward. The teacher was lovely and knew his stuff but he was also a little awkward... Food was great though. Overall I'm glad I did it.

“Happy with the Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

From the reviews, I wasn't hesitant on booking this place. They picked us up from our hotel. We had emailed back and forth. For 600 baht we did the evening 4 dishes course. It did run past 9:30 which felt very long. Other than that, the classes are taught really well. First, you visit the supermarket for a brief education on the ingredients that will be used. Then we were given 10 min to walk around on our own. Went back and made two dishes first (i picked cashew chicken/coconut soup). We enjoyed these dishes and then went back and made two more dishes (I picked spring rolls/green curry). Got a certificate and recipe book. My kids aged 10 and 12 really enjoyed the cooking experience as well. For the price, I would definately recommend it. Don't expect 5 star and you won't be disappointed.
