the cooking school is the best and very professional
This was the best of the activities we signed up for in Bangkok, and I highly recommend it! The staff were very nice and friendly, and all three dishes we made were delicious. We also got nice recipe books at the end of the class which we took home so we can make these dishes again at home.
Top notch cooking school! So professional and accomidating. The food was excellent, facility was absolutely beautiful, and teachers were entertaining! Even if you have zero skill, you will love this class! They teach you everything step by step so it is never overwhelming! Excellent!!
We had a great time and the cooking teachers were great. I learned a lot of great techniques that I plan to use when I get home. I definitely recommend.
Great class really enjoyed the school and the trip to the market
Pretty basic cooking class, but beautiful location and fun to get out of the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.

Baipai Cooking School 10/10
This is a unique amazing experience that I highly recommend to anyone in Bangkok. It was my first cooking class and my first experience in cooking, so even as a beginner I found it easy and had a great time.
I got picked up at 8:30 from my hotel in a nice clean air-conditioned van. The organization was excellent Baipai school called my hotel to let me know that the car is stuck in traffic and they will be 5 minutes late. At 8:35 sharp the car arrived. We made another stop to pick up 2 more participants. We were only 6 people in the van and in the class 5 adults and a 5 years old boy Leo.
Getting to the school was a 30 minutes drive, as the villas door opens and the car gets inside, you feel as if youve transported out of the city to a beautiful oasis. There is a beautiful water pond with live fish and a small fall. The greenery and the plants made a nice scenery contrast to the city concrete. I was in awe, the attention of details in building the Baipai cooking school is mesmerizing. Just to visit the school is an experience that shouldnt be missed.
Pae our class coordinator welcomed us, offered us free drinks coffee, tea, water and explained to us what we will be cooking and presented us with a small book of menus. We were also offered aprons and a towel each. We were introduced by Pae to different herbs and ignredients that are planted in the school garden. We each had two station a prep station and a cooking station, every thing is organized and laid out perfectly.
Paes English is perfect, she is very articulate, patient and fun. She answered all our questions and assist us throughout the day. When I struggled in wrapping my chicken with Pandanus leaves she was there for me and showed me again how it is done, Im now an expert :
We learned to cook: Coconut sticky rice with Mango, Papaya Salad, Chicken in Pandanus Leaves, Red curry paste, then Red Curry with Pork/Chciken/Tofu and Bamboo. Chef Eye made things look so easy and simple, as Ive never cooked before I didnt struggle at all. Even Leo who is 5 years old managed to cook all the meals and when I asked him he said he had fun. As a gift we were given colored detailed recipe cards with all what we cooked, a fridge magnet with a picture of myself while cooking.
Once again Id like to thank Pae, Chef Eye and the whole team @Baipai Cooking School.
We enjoyed eating the food that we cooked, we had a great lunch and I personally had a blast. By 13:30 we were done. The staff asked where do we want to be dropped, you can ask for a different destination other than the hotel, the same van dropped us back to our hotels.
I highly recommend Baipai Cooking School to anyone visiting or living in Bangkok. It is an experience that you should not miss 10/10.
This was absolutely the best cooking class I've ever taken! We were shown how to prep the ingredients for each of four recipes, then we had individual stations to cook our dishes. We then sat and ate each one- an appetizer, soup, curry and dessert. Most classes I've taken, most of the prep is already done, and participants sharing the cooking of just one of the dishes. Jun and Fya showed us the ingredients growing in the garden, and gave us a great deal of detailed information about how to handle the ingredients. We received all the recipes in a handy holder. I definitely feel I can go home and replicate the dishes.
The cooking area is open air, It was fine in the morning, and there was plenty of cold water on hand to drink. But be prepared if you're sensitive to the heat.
Absolutely wonderful cooking class. The ambience was beautiful, class informative, and instructor fabulous. Highly recommend!

Loved this amazing place! The grounds and place feel like a beautiful spa getaway. Fun and informative staff. We made and ate: a beef salad, a chicken stir fry dish, pad Thai, and a dessert. Needless to say, you won and #39;t leave hungry! My 12 year old chose this activity and we all had a great time :)
Wonderful class! Our chefs, June and Eye, did an excellent job teaching us about Thai plants and herbs, techniques for using them, and helping us create our own delicious lunch. It was a truly memorable experience.
Absolutely loved it. Know that it is intended for people with little or no experience in making Thai food so do not attend if you are a chef at a famous LA restaurant chain. The tour guides were friendly, helpful, and taught basic stuff without making you feel like an utter fool in the kitchen. All the equipment was top-notch, the place was out-of-this-world, and ample times was given to make food and socialize.
Very well executed from pickup to drop off. The meals we cooked were all well planned and delicious. The cooking class was on the most beautiful scenic site and the instructors were simply lovely. They even send you photos taken during the class which is a thoughtful and gesture. I could not recommend this experience enough.
Excellent tour! Great way to learn about the ingredients that goes into Thai food, the difference in the various peppers and how to safely handle them. The different herbs that change the flavor of the dish, by the intensity of the flavor, like seasoning Soy Sauce, Galangal vs Ginger, different Basil's, once you taste this, you understand what you are missing.
Also this is an individual cooling class so each person prepare their dish, A group activity was grating coconut to make coconut cream.
The cooking techniques apply also to all cooking, like heating pans, checking oil temperature, the thing I found I really need at home is a Wok burner.
The staff was great, the setting was excellent, with garden, partially open air classroom and kitchen, excellent afternoon, fellowship, meeting new people, maybe from your home country. Different than museum or temple tour as everyone is focused on cooking and tasting the final product.
To Viator, Please try to list this as a Morning and Afternoon class, I asked and did afternoon, this way you/I did a Temple tour in the morning, got back to hotel, short break and was ready for pickup for the Baipai class. With distance to the school, Bangkok traffic, and if the class runs a bit long, the afternoon session lets you do more tours, if time in Bangkok is at a premium.
Very good class. Very well organised and relaxed for the participants. Well worth the money.
So helpful and nice team!! Everything prepared according to my allergies, felt safe and had no problems afterwards. Beautiful surroundings and clockwork organized. I highly recommend this cooking class :
This was certainly one of the highlight of my Bangkok trip. The Baipai Thai Cooking School goes out of its way to give you an amazing experience. This tranquil, beautiful site feels like it and #39;s far away from the city but, in truth, it and #39;s under an hour even with notorious Bangkok traffic.
Recommended this cooking class to other people and they all LOVED it also
Definitely one of the highlights of my Bangkok trip, a great experience, easy to follow instructions by the Chef. I would definitely recommend.
Excellent facility, great instruction, and great quality food we made ourselves! Learned a lot - how to use coconut milk vs cream effectively. Also how to use lemongrass, which we have growing at home. Excited to do these recipes again at home!

This was fabulous. Very professional and well-organized class held in a beautiful facility with both decorative and herb gardens. Not far outside Bangkok. Great introduction to classic Thai ingredients and food prep. We made five dishes from scratch, down to shredding the coconut on a traditional 'rabbit' shredder and pounding all ingredients for the curries by hand, and were sent home with a recipe book and photographs. Would absolutely recommend, and plan to do it again with my teenage daughter on my next trip.
Good fun and the food was delicious! Will be trying to source the right ingredients at home now we know what Thai food should taste like.
