Great friendly staff, Mama (older generation Thai) spoke excellent english. The teacher was friendly and fantastic. Cooking class was really easy and understood everything clearly.. Do not eat before going as you are very full by the end of it. Highly recommended but not on a hot day as it gets quite warm in the kitchen with 6 people cooking. Purchased cook book and cant wait to start cooking the recipes. Only takes approx 2 hours maybe a little more.

Myself and my wife had recently participated to a cooking class at Pum's restaurant in Patong and have to say that we really enjoyed. The lady that was teaching us was very good and friendly, she gave us an introduction about Thai food and their ingredients and then she asked us to choose 3 recipes each that we loved to cook. After that we moved to the kitchen, quite small but perfect for the occasion, there she followed us during the cooking process of our dish and then we all sit at one table and shared our food. Was a lovely experience because we had the possibility to learn mor about delicious Thai food and also to meet new people. I would definetely suggest it to all my friends.

Had such a fun time at the cooking school. My partner and I did the 4 hour "little Wok" course. There was a bout 9 of us in the class which was perfect! We cooked four dishes which we got to choose from a selection, the teachers are very knowledgable and helpful and teach you not just to cook but also about the ingriedents and the history about thai food. From our 15 days in Thailand some of the best thai food we ate was cooked by ourselves during this cooking class. At the end of the class you get a recipe book which has all the recipes of the meals that you cooked and also a few others and you also get taken to the local food market where you learn more about Thai foods. I recommend this to everyone - worth every dollar!

The best part of the cooking class was learning how to make a curry paste from scratch. Most recipes are not that difficult but having great ingredients is the key. Our instructor took the time to explain each ingredient and its purpose. We spent a few minutes with a mortar and pestle making a super fresh green curry paste to use in our cooking. I did Pum's little shoes and selected three recipes to make at a cost of 1500 Bhat (@46USD). All the food was delicious and I learned a lot about Thai cooking.

Run by students, this is a nice, clean place along the shopping stretch. Enjoyed the mango sticky rice along with Thai iced tea here.
