Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Baipai Thai Cooking School Class in Bangkok. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
I had an excellent time at my cooking class earlier this week. We started out learning about the herbs, progressed to learning about traditional methods for creating coconut cream and milk (including grating coconut using 'the rabbit' which we each did ourselves), before progressing to creating each of the four delicious dishes under the supervision of our chef instructor and his assistant. This was the highlight of my trip to Bangkok, which was a fantastic trip itself, but I really enjoyed my experience here, and am strongly considered returning to Bangkok to partake in their intensive program where you get to learn 25 dishes. Can't recommend this more highly, you will enjoy your experience for sure!
This was our second time and we will almost certainly go again in the future. Very professionally run, but also relaxed and fun. The skills taught are practical and you even take home your recipes. We were happy to receive a few nice photos in our email after we got back home!
This was one of the best things we did in Bangkok. A well planned event that is value for money. Chompooh our lovely host along with Chef March and the team at Baipai went above and beyond to make this a special time in their kitchen. My daughter and I partnered up (looking like master chefs with baipai aprons), first watched Chef March prepare each Meal,then it was our turn to cook the same meal. Everything was laid out and measured and of course, assistance when needed. The food was beautiful, and lots of new tips brought home to assist in creating great thai meals. If you like good food, this is a must! Photos of us cooking were emailed to us the same day. Our thanks to the Baipai team for giving us such a memorable day.
Great experience. Really enjoyed the physical surroundings, the cooking demonstration, our hands on after the demo -- and then eating the food in a beautiful setting. They also took pictures of us cooking and emailed them to us as a very nice reminder of our wonderful experience.
My husband, my daughter and myself really enjoyed this tour. The location was beautiful and the dishes we cooked tasted great. The experience was a highlight of our holiday.
A beautiful building north of bangkok with herb gardens and seating in a luxurious decking area. The food was delicious and we were shown how to grate the coconut and pick the herbs, and the company sent us photos afterwards which was a lovely touch. Felt very homely and the chefs were delightful.
The Baipai Cooking School class was definitely the highlight of our short visit to Bangkok. Located a short distance out of the city, we were unure what we had let ourselves in for, but one arrive we were quickly put at ease. After being fitted out with apron and accessaries we were introduced to Thai herbs and spices in the garden, and shown how to extract the ingredients. The class was well attended. We prepared and cooked four Thai dishes. Instruction was simple and someone was never far away to put you right if you deviated from thre recipe. Finally we ate what we cooked. Everyone was given a small folder containing the recipesand also a souvenier photograph of ourselves in action! Well worth the money and we would do it again - I understand the school do a variety of half-day courses. Highly recommended!
A really enjoyable and informative class. We had great fun preparing, cooking and eating at this excellent purpose built venue. The staff were very friendly. I would certainly recommend this activity to anyone who visits Bangkok.
we found this a very good half day cooking course, we had great fun the chef was very good and help us where we need his help the second chef asked the question we where going to ask as he had done this many times he know the type of question we where likely to ask, after you had made your meals we all as down to eat it. a ever enjoyable day thank you.
A wonderful experience, chef very helpful and very hands on cooking. The timing for pick up and return to the hotel was excellent. Strongly recommend this tour.
This was a wonderful introduction to Thai cooking and cuisine for my wife and I. We especially enjoyed the special care and personalized touch that Chef March and his assist Jit gave to our small class of 5 people. We will be returning again in the future. Highly recommended!

I've always been skeptical of cooking classes, because I can cook well at home. But Baipai was such a lovely experience, from the second we got picked up, to the second we were dropped off. All the staff are so friendly, fun, and welcoming. And the location... wow... I had expected some small kitchen in someone's apartment, but this was a proper setup in a beautiful enclosed house with a stunning courtyard and herb gardens. I learned so much that I otherwise would not have learned from any cook book, online blog, or video. A great way to meet new friends while enjoying the fabulous food you cook. It was worth every penny. We loved it so much, we actually repeated the recipes at home using the exact same steps we were taught. Bravo, Baipai!!!
Highly recommend this tour/cooking school. You will be able to collect your own herbs, see the traditional way of preparing food - step by step, guided by experience staff, all in friendly atmosphere of suburban villa among always smiley Thai people:)
Excellent class: friendly staff, efficient organization and great food (cooked by us of course)!
Best possible class ever!!! I was a little nervous as I'd never taken a cooking class before but the pick up and drop off were easy, the chefs/assistants were AMAZINGLY fun, helpful and positive and the class itself produced some delicious results. This was absolutely the best thing I did in Bangkok! THANK YOU :)
This tour was among the best I have done through Viator. The pickup was prompt, the organisation terrific and the food great. Thoroughly recommend this tour!

i loved everything minute of the class. a definite must
The Baipai Cooking School is fantastic. I was not sure what to expect but it was really hands on. The staff are so friendly, welcoming and funny. The location in a quiet suburban garden is great. Jit and Chef March took great care of our class. We had plenty of opportunities to practice the dishes and really enjoyed eating the results. I have definitely increased my understanding of Thai ingredients and improved my cooking skills. I've practiced the recipes since coming home with great success. It was a really fun and no-rush experience. Jit emailed after the course to follow up with photos and more info as he promised. I would highly recommend Baipai and I look forward to going back again in the future for more 'advanced' lessons. Well done Baipai !
Wonderful class. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A must do if you have the time in Bangkok.
Really enjoyed the cooking school. Very well run operation. Would definitely recommend to others
One of the best tours. Pick and drop off was timely. Cooking school clean and tropical. Work stations appropriately stocked. Staff very kind, knowledgeable and tried hard to the day Fun. Dished on menu was aptly chosen and my husband and I learned a lot.
I was in Bangkok for 3 days last week after spending a 7 nights in Vietnam. Going to this cooking school was one of the highlights of my entire trip.
The setting is almost spa-like, as the pagoda-shaped school is in peaceful surroundings on the outskirts of the bustling city.
After visiting a busy market, then being driven to the school, a chef and an assistant will show you how to prepare each course. Afterwards, you prepare the dish using their recipe cards and your own individual wok. You're given plenty of relaxing time to eat your creation, with more instruction between courses.
They have a small gift shop where they sell decorative tin cups used for the welcome drink of iced tea with lemongrass, or you can buy potholders, spatulas, aprons, etc. if you want a souvenir from the school.
I highly recommend the entire experience, because it's soothing and memorable.
This was very well organized from pickup to drop off and the whole day's schedule. Greatly enjoyed and we will do this again. Thanks, Baipai Thai Cooking School!
