“A truly great experience and such a fun day.”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

My wife and I decided to try the cooking course at Pum's restaurant in Chiang Mai, we were both a bit apprehensive at first but soon got very immersed in creating some wonderful Thai dishes. There was only four of us in the course and after cooking two dishes each and sampling each others cooking we all jumped in a van and headed off to a traditional Thai market. The sights, sounds and aromas at the market were fascinating. After sampling and purchasing some produce we headed back to cook and sample three more dishes each. It was such an enjoyable and educational day, the staff were super friendly, the restaurant was very clean and pleasant. We left with very full stomachs, very much the wiser and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the experience to others. We are heading back to Chiang Mai with 5 other couples over the new year and we will all be booking in for another day of cooking fun. Ps make sure you finish off the experience with a relaxing massage just a few doors up the street.

“Great cooking experience”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I booked myself a day cooking course, had a great time. Learnt a lot about thai cooking generally as well as the selected dishes. trip to the food market was good fun and our chef (whos name I forget) was lovely and taught us a bunch of thai words which was a bonus.

Oh and beyond all the food we cooked was very tasty.

“Great thai food in an orange designed restaurant”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Learning to cook in The PUM THAI was very easy and great. We enjoyed this colorful and warmful place as much as its joyful owners. We found the bicycle riding to the market entertaining and useful.

“One of the best days on our holiday in Changmai”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

My partner and I whilst in Changmai did the cooking course at Pums it was fantastic more than we could have hoped for. After cooking two courses and eating them ,we had a visit to the local market and then back to cook three more courses with Alice the chef helping every step of the way. We thoroughly enjoyed the class and spending time at the market all in all a fantastic day . Worth every penny would do it again in a heart beat. Just need Pum to open a restaurant in Melbourne so we can do it again.
