“A fantastic class - Ying and Lionel are very friendly and accommodating!”

Phuket Cooking Academy
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had a fabulous Thai cooking class with Ying and Lionel during our holiday in Phuket in September. We found them to be incredibly helpful - from organising the taxi transfer to catering to my dietary requirements (I cannot eat onions, garlic, wheat or mushrooms so that is no easy feat!). The dishes cooked were amazing and by the end we were incredibly full! We also enjoyed how passionate they were about thai food, showing us around their garden and explaining the cooking methods and thai culture to us. They provided us with a copy of the recipes too, so we can recreate our dishes at home! Thank you both for your help and hospitality!

A fabulous day - very highly recommended!!

My family loves to cook, and while in a VRBO house, we were interested in not only having someone local come in and prepare a dinner for us, but one that would allow us to watch and ask questions would be ideal as good, authentic Thai food can sometimes be hard to come by for us. Not sure how to go about such a search, I started calling smaller, but highly rated, local cooking schools and explaining what we were looking for. These guys rocked our world. For about $60 US per person, they came in and brought all the food an equipment necessary to make 5 dishes. Not to mention they pulled everything together within two days of our request and over new years's holiday. We were able to watch the cooking process and ask questions before they served us and cleaned up the cooking area. Easily one of our best experiences in Phuket. They emailed the recipes to boot! Thanks Raphael & Ying! Sorry it took so long, but a woman of my word to post on TA. :-)

The highlight of our Phuket trip ... that pretty much says it all. An excellent resource shared in a relaxed fun environment by Ying and Lionel. Both excellent teachers and passionate cooks. I couldn't recommend this experience highly enough from either an educational, relaxational, gastronomical or social perspective. IF you dont do at least a one day Thai cooking class here then you are missing out !!!!

We have just had a wonderful day with a wonderful couple of chefs. We did the Thai cooking course and managed to eat all 5 courses! The wife and I were keen to learn a bit about Thai cooking on our holiday and took the trouble to look around for a good cooking school. We settled on this one because of the reviews, and we were not disappointed. We are even thinking of coming back to Phuket to do a 5 day course next year! Many thanks Lionel and Ying for a lovely day; hope to see you again. You have a lovely, peaceful setting and you made us feel very welcome.

We were 4 people taking the Thai food menu of the day, and it was excellent. If you love to cook, and looking to learn some thai food or whatever else they have on the menu, I would recommend this place.
