Absolutely amazing! Our class consisted of myself, my sister and a young guy from Canada (who all enjoy cooking). We all left with a better understanding and appreciation for Thai cooking and with a full belly (as you eat what you cook at the end of the class). The instructor and her staff are friendly, kind and a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend this experience.

Tolle Erfahrungen! Wir haben wirklich Spaß gehabt und das Essen war super lecker. Der Ausflug zu einem nicht Touristischen Markt war klasse. Die Kochschule ist etwas schwer zu finden. Ihr müsst einmal um das Gebäude herumlaufen, rechts in eine kleine unscheinbare Gasse rein.

This is the best cooking class I've ever had. It's the real deal. It's not some cooking show they teach you very well and the chef is very helpful and her food is amazing. At the end of lesson you will all eat and enjoy what you cooked and you'll be amazed how good your own food is. About the market tour, it's at the beginning of the program they take you there and they will buy the ingredients fresh and explain some authentic Thai ingredients. Highly recommend
