Roong, the instructor, was super accommodating and very funny. During class, she took a lot of care to not only explain what steps we needed to take, but to also explain why certain ingredients are necessary and the purpose of each ingredient. I definitely learned alot of interesting tidbits, like how oyster sauce is so thick because there's cornstarch in it, so if you add oyster sauce to meats it'll make the meat more tender.

The preparation takes most of the time and then you head upstairs to do the actual cooking. The entire class lasts around three hours and then you take however long you enjoy the meal.

All the recipes are provided to you in a booklet to take home and you have the option to take photos of other recipes from other classes (the menu changes depending on the day/time you take the class)

The food was delicious too!! I would definitely recommend taking a class if you're in Koh Samui!

We had a great experience at SITCA. The class itself is fairly long, and the preparation of the dishes takes a while, but the teachers are very knowledgable and walk you through all of the steps for 4-5 dishes. The actual cooking takes only 10 minutes or so, and then you get to enjoy them! Highly recommend the class for those looking to learn how to make a few Thai dishes.

The instructor was amazing!! She taught us all sorts of different vegetables used in the dishes and made sure we were engaged throughout the whole process. My gf was also vegan so she accommodated for her. AMAZING AND STAFF!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND PAY THE FEE!!!

Some may say that the price of about 1,650 Bhat is pricey for a cooking class but honestly it isn't.

We learnt how to make a number of dishes and then enjoyed them for lunch; the food was different than that you have in run of the mill setups and it's special.

They also serve amazing Thai food and the sticky rice & mango I had here was the best in Thailand, and believe me I went to very fancy places.

Totally worth it if you are looking for a different experience.

We enjoyed very much our cooking class by Chef Roongfa Sringam. It was wonderful and unforgettable experience. Chef Roongfa not just a professional but also a very charming person. She exposed us to fascinating stories and amazing flavors of Thai cuisine. Definitely recommended.
