Plein les yeux, super!

Had a great time, very educational and engaging, everything from the local market visit to the actual cooking class. Also wow, after eating my green curry, tom yum, padthai and mango sticky rice— I was so full they all came out delicious! I highly recommend this class :) Awesome experience and awesome people! Give them a ring if at the beginning you can locate the school (find the domino’s pizza in the area and make a turn at the small alley/lane way)

I really enjoyed this class. They struck the right balance between helping us prep so we didn't waste time and ensuring we got to work through all the steps. The food was delicious. The room was silent as we all savoured the best pad thai we'd ever eaten. Portion sizes were sensible. Market visit was ok. would thoroughly recommend.

This was one of the highlights of my time in Thailand! I absolutely loved the full experience of shopping in the water market, cooking it under the dynamic leadership of May and then eating the scrumptious meal we made. Just outstanding!

Fantastic tour - well worth it to explore and taste Bangkok with the beauty of seeing Bangkok lit up. Knowledgable guides too. A must. LOADS OF FOOD!

The cooking class was really fun! I definitely recommend!
