Amazing class
Jared_V, Aug 2022
This cooking class was definitely a highlight of our trip to Bangkok! We loved the experience of going in a tuk tuk and visiting a market where we were able to ask a lot of questions and learn about local produce. The cooking itself was very fun because we were able to chop and grind things ourselves with great guidance. The food was delicious and we can't wait to try our recipes at home!
Easy and fun cooking class
Nkechinyere_O, Jul 2022
Small group and great experience. Come hungry and ready to cook. A small space but very organized with a great instructor that even the worst cook can follow 😊
Take this class!
David_T, Jul 2022
First, May was an incredible host. Everything was so well prepared, thoughtful, and well thought out. The trip to the market was fun and informative and the cooking was straightforward and actually easy! I couldn’t believe the curry that I made was THAT good. I would HIGHLY recommend this class to anyone interested in Thai food basics.
A half day well spent; excellent cooking class!!

Great cooking class
Ilona_M, Mar 2022
A bit tricky to find the entrance, read the disrciption of the c9nfirmation well. We almost missed the market tour because of it but luckily we came just in time. It was only us and one other person. We have cooked all my favourite dishes so I was extremely happy to learn them. Market was great as well! Our host and teacher was really nice and the food was delicious! I was so stuffed at the end I had to roll home.
Chef was really patient...

Chef was really patient and polite. Would love to come back again and learn more dishes, given the time frame.
So much fun and informative!
Christine_N, Jan 2020
This class was so fun the market tour adds to the experience. The dishes were simple enough but still complex in flavor. The instructor was so sweet and helpful. I love that we got a certificate at the end, that was a nice touch. I would def do a class again. The food was delicious.
Great Time
Nichole_N, May 2019
This was a great cooking class, very informative and organized. Can't wait to make the dishes at home.
A wonderful Thai Cooking experience
Ajay_M, May 2019
We had a wonderful time visiting the local market to buy the food and then learnt how to cook authentic thai food. Mae was a wonderful teacher and we were really pleasantly surprised at how quickly the three hours flew by. The food we cooked was delicious but far too much for us to finish. We located the venue on a previous day so had no difficulty finding it on the morning of our class. We got to keep our receipe printouts and also got a certifcate for attending the course which was a lovely souvenir of our visit.
Monika_G, Mar 2019
Great experience! Lots of cooking, eating and knowledge. Great value for money as well. 100% recommend

stephanie_w, Feb 2018
Mae was an excellent guide/cooking instructor. The market visit to purchase items for our meal was very interesting. We each had a cooking station and each made our own delicious curry paste then used that for a green chicken curry dish. We made hot sour shrimp soup, Thai chicken basil, then pad thai noodles. And then we got to eat it.

Nancy_G, Jan 2018
Mai was a lovely, patient and totally engaging guide and teacher. Her place is very clean and air conditioned! The tuk tuk to the market was great as was shopping for our fresh ingredients to cook. We made 4 dishes that were great and varied and learned new techniques to take home with us. I would highly rec!

Peter S, Jan 2018
We really had fun in this class. We started with a market trip and that was interesting, not the same markets we tourists see. The facility was clean and well set up for what we were doing. The teacher made it fun. So this is a good choice! One note: The entrance is hard to find and down an ally which looks pretty sketchy but we were fine. We got lucky as just as were started to wander a street vendor sent us to the right place. But it does not look like the right place.

Joyce_A, Oct 2017
fantastic experience. really friendly, helpful guide. loved the market visit - saw a ton of fruits and vegetables I've never seen before and the guide could explain them all. cooking was also really fun, with very clear instructions but you do it all yourself, and then you don't even have to worry about finding somewhere for dinner! highly recommend.
This was a fantastic cooking class...
Conner S, Jul 2017
This was a fantastic cooking class. It was fun and very educational, and we did all the work, even down to squeezing our own coconut milk. The market trip was great, and the cook is extremely knowledgable. Clean, fun, and well worth it. Oh, and the food is delicious.

Andrew H, Apr 2017
This was great fun. Learned some good cooking tips and new recipes. The instructor was very good and explained things clearly and well. Also, the chance to shop in a local market was a really neat experience that I might not have done otherwise.
Very hard time finding the place...
Taameir_D, Mar 2017
