Loved the local market saw some foods we didn't know and was amazed how clean it was. The class was extremely orchestrated and fun. I would highly recommend this tour and class for anyone who loves food.
I had a great experience partaking in this cooking class. Warning to all travellers in Bangkok, many locations are initially hard to find because of the adjoining alleys. Take extra time to look for the place you are visiting or you may arrive late and miss out on some activities. That is the only downside to any Bangkok tours but it is not the fault of the company, it's just the city's charm of which a traveller/tourist should be mindful. I left early but still got lost looking for the cooking school location, and was worried because I thought I would miss the market trip. I called, and the instructor Mae helped me find it, and waited several minutes for me. Mae is wonderful she is incredibly kind and informative, and made the market trip a pleasure. Cooking with her was also great. I rarely cook but felt so comfortable to make Thai curry, soups, and other dishes. The instructor understands how to slowly explain each step to making the perfect Thai dish. It doesn't hurt that Thai cuisine is also so delicious! I met some wonderful people who recommended other tours to me ie. bike tour. I would definitely take a class like this again.
We had a great time at the market trip and cooking class. It was paced nicely and the chef kindly answered all of our endless questions.
The market tour was incredible with all the fresh vegetables, fruit, and meats. The cooking experience was also amazing making green curry from scratch vs buying the paste was the highlight. All 4 dishes were very fun to make and very good to eat. Mae and her team are top notch. The highlight of our trip!
This cooking class was amazing and fun - the trip to the local market was very informational and easy to travel with one of their staff. I enjoyed all the recipes and the class was taught at a great pace! and the food was delicous! Staff was incredibly nice - highly recommend!
WOW! Not only do you go to the market, learn what everything, watch a live demo on how to make your dish, cook it yourself, but you also get a full meal to enjoy at the end of the class. Just the eats are worth the price. The classes are small and intimate. All hands on with no one left behind. Also if you need any help with anything just ask. It was great. I would not have missed it for anything. Thanks!!!!
This is the absolute best cooking class I have ever done. I felt a bit ill and Mae the instructor was so kind and helpful. The trip to the market was very informative. It and #39;s an awesome teaching kitchen and the prep for participants is spot on. I consider myself a good cook and I truly learnt a lot.
Enjoy a lot in this activity, experience is unique, environment is clean and neat.
Mae and the team were amazing. The market visit was a great opportunity to learn about new ingredients including ones beyond what we needed for the class, the cooking lessons were easy to follow, and the resulting dishes were out of this world. Skip breakfast and plan on skipping dinner too, because you make yourself four great dishes!
Yes, it could be gluten free! It was a fantastic experience. One of the highlights of our trip to Thailand. The market visit was fantastic and the explanation of the fruits, vegetables and others live frogs, live fish, etc. was very interesting. Our instructor was very pleasant and very patience with all of us. The place is very difficult to find since you have to go deep inside alleys. Dont despair when you see the outside of the place it is not the most attractive place you can imagine but inside is very clean, organized and has AC. The food is delicious! We met several people on our visit to Bangkok and to all of them we told them about the cooking class. Definitely will do it again if I return to the city.
We had a absolutely fantastic time with Maliwan and #39;s Cooking Class. Mae was a great instructor! My husband has no real experience cooking from scratch but he was able to make the entire authentic Thai meal. The market tour was a great experience as well. I would defintely recommend this class.
My son and daughter signed up with me for this class and we had a great time. The trip to the market was so informative and I learned so much about the huge variety of ingredients that go into Thai cooking. Mae was so wonderful about answering all our questions and giving us a lot of details. The cooking class was so fun and it was nice to be able to cook without having to do a lot of the shopping, food prep, and clean up - what a treat! And the food we cooked was delicious, one of our best meals during our two week trip to Thailand/Cambodia!
The cooking class is really amazing, I had so much fun. The market visit is super interesting, then the cooking part is really easy and smooth, you just need to follow the steps that were shown to you before. Really nice experience, really nice food. I would recommend this to anybody looking for a genuine and fun experience.
The location is a bit tricky to find, you have to go through a weird, dark and narrow alley.
Class was excellent and the host of the class was exceptional, she was very good at teaching and explaining to us about thai cooking, market visit was very good.
An excellent way to discover Thai cuisine in another way.
Mae is very friendly and a top instructor. Proud to say our dishes were excellent :-.
A great experience however difficult to find. Having the directions in Thai would be useful.
It was a wonderful class I'm glad my friend convinced me to take a cooking class. Walking through the outside Street Market was insightful and informative. It was very cool to experience life like a local. So cool to be able to recreate 4 different dishes with pro Help from a Thai chef.
Mae, our instructor was very knowledgeable and funny. She showed us around the local market and we had a blast.
There were a few down sides however... The location was VERY hard to find, even the taxi drivers had a really hard time finding it.
Also, my boyfriend and I both ended up with food poisoning after taking this class, something that is bound to happen here in Thailand but steer clear of the chicken/ proteins the storage is really bad at the markets.

This was one of the highlights to our Bangkok Trip!!!
The establishment was clean and the kitchen spotless. It was clear during the cooking class that they value cleanliness and hygiene and we liked this. Our cooking stations were kept clean and our water was refilled ALL the time!
We went to the market and this was very informative, we felt free to even ask questions about produce that we were not buying.
The dishes that we cooked were delicious and it felt like we were having a special feast at the end of the cooking class.
The bonus was that we made friends with some of out participants of the cooking class and spent some more time with them while on our stay in Bangkok.
I would highly recommend this during your stay in Bangkok!!! It was an afternoon well spent...... Thank you for adding to my memories.
I really enjoyed myself! We took a trip to the market via tuk tuk to pick up our ingredients, learning about and trying the foods along the way. Our chef was an expert instructor. She walked us through preparing our meals to our own taste preference. We prepared soup, two entrees, and dessert. All were delicious!!! I highly recommend this tour, but be sure you're a bit hungry when you arrive!
This was a great trip. A little spot with great charm, the instructors and organizers spoke excellent English and made it such a fun day!
Highly recommended. A great way to spend some time and learn about Thai culture and cuisine.
