Before this cooking class we were cooking in Thailand and Vietnam, too. We love cooking and tasting different kinds of food. When we came to Battambang, we realised there is not much to do and so we decided to cook once again and it was worth it!

The class started at 9 o'clock in the morning. First we were walking to the market, where Vannak the chef told us everything about the ingredients. He was choosing only the best for us!
Back at the restaurant we were cooking three traditional dishes including Fish Amok, Stir Fried Chicken with Basil Leaves and Beef Lok Lak. Great, the best food we ever tasted in Cambodia!

We were only a group of 5, so it was easy to follow. Vannak's English is also excellent and he is a very friendly guy who just want to learn the people how to cook.

Finished around 1 pm with a smile on our faces, knowing we had a great morning!

Visited here with high hopes. Service slow and disinterested. Felt we were an inconvenience being there. Three adults, ordered three different main dishes. Each one was incredibly bland, dry, poor quality ingredients. Ate what we could (not much) and decided to leave and cut our losses. Then waited a very long time for the overinflated bill. Nothing to recommend this place.

Gritty little restaurant in Battambang, served by 7 year olds and the usual Khmer food which is interesting if not totally appetising. We would be unlikely to return although the food was hot and acceptable.

Payed $10 for cooking class which started at 9am and finished around 12 noon. Was very easy to follow and the teacher was more than friendly and chatty. We were taken to buy fresh imgredients from the market before cooking famous dishes amok fish, beef lok lak and shrimp salad. Meals were great tasting! We were given cooking books to take away too :-). I'd like to recommend on behalf of smoking pot for people to book directly through them as anyone taken by tuk tuk or hotel has to be paid $3 to each, so the restaurant gets the money it deserves

Would definitely recommend this restaurant. The food was delicious and they do some sort of Vodka based Ciprianha cocktail with fresh lime which is delicious!
