There is no better way to learn Thai cooking than when you're in Thailand. The cooking courses at Sompong Original Thai Cooking School are set in an ideal homestyle environment that is different from most of the hotels and restaurants in Thailand. Thinking of taking a class on the last day in Bangkok? Sompong Original Thai Cooking School can wrap up your trip to Thailand wonderfully!
At Sompong Thai Cooking School, you will find that we use only the freshest ingredients purchased that day. You too will get to pick your own exotic fruits and vegetables and take in all the s...
The guides and chefs were patient and did a lot of explaining of how Thai flavors come together - and stepped in whenever any of the guests had trouble with the techniques.
The course was full with so much new knowledge for me and the best part was that except the cooking it did not exclude and a lot of typical cultural things.
The Sompong Thai Cooking School team was informative, welcoming, and excellent teachers. The class was extremely well paced and organized and we cooked more food that we could possibly eat. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you!
Our instructor was great. She was very attentive, very patient, informative and safety conscious. We took a brief tour of the market where we learned about done of the key Thai ingredients. We were issued aprons and given cooking stations. Each student has his/her own wok station. We watched the instructor give a detailed demonstration of how to make the fish, then we went o our stations and made our own dishes. In this five hour glass, we made a yellow curry paste, a stir fry, a yellow curry, and a chicken and shrimp salad. We used the sticky rice which the instructor made in a demonstration for mango and sticky rice. Great class!
Fay the instructor was amazing , funny, full of knowledge and a lot of fun. The class was spotless clean, the whole crew was highly efficient, helpful and nice. We recommend this coocking class with all our hearts. Even my husband who never cooks, made delicious courses. The meal afterward was very enjoyable.
The class was lots of fun, the teachers were really helpful and explained and demonstrated everything. The meeting point is a little confusing from the description (didn't help they were a little late arriving), basically you meet on the bridge section around exit 3... either look out for someone in a red apron or (like we did) lots of other tourists looking for someone in an apron! The market tour was interesting. Also don't worry if you arrive and there are lots of people, there are multiple classrooms in the building and you get split up into groups of around 12-15.
We had a group of four and we were immediately greeted and welcomed, we headed to the market and our host was Ant she was is so funny and had such high energy. We really enjoyed our whole experience and the food was amazing. If we are in Bangkok again we will definitely be checking it out!!
I booked the cooking class for my 2 English friends. They found the class to be very interesting and fun. Very good value for money too. 👍👍👍
Far exceeded expectations. Interior was extremely clean, bright, air-conditioned. Our instructor Ant was clear - taught us a lot of basic techniques but kept the interest of the class. We each had our individual chopping board, wok, ingredients etc - all of the dishes are cooked individually except the mango sticky rice (and we made the curry paste as a group, which was fun). Class is well-paced. An entire recipe book with all the dishes (20 or so) is given at the start. Lastly the food was really delicious!!! We will definitely cook it at home. :)
We took the afternoon course which starts with explanation on the ingredients and where you can buy them. The cooking course was well explained.
A happy class especially with the teacher Ant who is professional and happy. Food were good, all assistance there were very helpful and professional as well. Very considerate in terms of cooking tools, bottle of water, tissue and clean washroom and etc. Conclusion is a very experienced and enjoyable activities in Thai.
It’s the first time that I joined a cooking class in Thailand. The teachers are friendly and helpful.
There were many beginners and also experienced cooks who learned a lot. The facility is excellent - very clean, super well organized. The instructor showed each step clearly and gave good information about how ingredients react. Also answered many questions with ease. Very pleasant. Absolutely top notch class.
The market tour introduced us to vegetables we'd never seen before. Air conditioned class was so much fun. Our instructor had a great sense of humour and made everything so easy, even for total novices. We felt so proud of ourselves for cooking such delicious food. Its great to have a whole recipe book to take home.
The class balanced hands on cooking experience and education on Thai cuisine. The facility was very clean and professional. It was hands down our best meal while in Thailand! Come hungry!
아이와 함께 참석한 요리교실인데 시장투어부터 시작해서 모든 과정이 다 만족스러웠다. 아이가 어려워 하는 부분도 충분히 따라갈 수 있게 도와주셔서 아이도 너무 만족해 한다
Well organized and Nancy was soooo good. Entertaining and informative. Now I know how to brunoise garlic! Lol!
Great experience. Would highly recommended
We had a fantastic morning at Sompong Thai Cookery School learning to make 4 classic Thai dishes. We enjoyed leavening about ingredients in the marked in the morning and then cooking them up into a wonderful feast. The tutors were brill; patient, funny and clear. A ready supply of Thai and Lemongrass iced tea was provided and we got to take a recipe book home with us. Excellent morning, great value for money and I’d recommend this class to anyone!
Everyone was very energetic and helpful. I learned so much today and wasn't expecting to, will remember this experience for a long long time! Thank you so much!
it was great! people there are nice and help me understand cooking. i caught a cold and they offered me a hot beverage and controlled air conditioner.
Great cooking class! Great teachers, super nice and smiley and great ingridiants and explanations about how to make at home after the class as well. they just thought about every detail! I highly recommend it!
Cooking is not that difficult with smiling face and after attended Sompong Thai Cooking class. Teachers are all nice and helpful.
Un excellent moment plein de découverte! Les recettes sont délicieuses, les explications très claires, une hygiène irréprochable. Super !
The chefs have a great sense of humour, we learnt a lot snd had so much fun. It was so satisfying to eat the delicious dishes that we had cooked ourselves!
Teacher is fanny and class is interesting. Learn some knowledge about thai cuisine. And i completes 3 courses and it s not that difficult. All are delicious.
It was my first cooking class even in my country I've never had. The local market was interesting. very kind explanation and experince The cooking school was clean and cozy. Our teacher Fai was very kind and humorous. WE spend such a great time. We made Tom yam Ggung, massaman curry which is become my favorite curry, fried rice with tomato's skin rose, pumpkin soup desert. 목요일 수업이었고 똠양꿍, 마사만커리, 볶음밥, 호박스프 만들었어요 쿠킹클래스가 깔끔 깨끗 좋았습니다 로컬마켓에서도 만져보고 먹어보고 냄새맡아보고, 친절하게 시간갖고 다 경험 할수 있게 해줬어요 특히 선생님이 친절하고 재밌었어요 모두에게 추천
The teachers are humorous and the class is interesting. I learned some of the herbs and the basic skills of cooking Thai food. Next time when I come, I'll join the class with Tom Yum soup.
good manner, kind and friendly teathers and warm heart!
Amazing teaching, easy to find (even if you're late from the usual traffic), the market tour was good and the demonstrations safe and easy. The cookbook is also one of the best parts!
Loved the cooking class. Ant walked us the nearby market to show us what ingredients to buy and how to tell whether they were fresh or not. Our instructor was extremely helpful every step of the way, going over each step of the cooking process, showing us in real-time and even giving us a little lesson on some Thai vocabulary. It was a great experience overall. Also liked how they provided us with a cookbook at the end of the lesson for our reference. Highly recommend!
Great content. The visit to the market and description of traditional Thai herbs and ingredients and their distinction from others was most helpful. Instructors were knowledgeable and personable. English language instruction was superb. It was a hands-on experience that was well orchestrated to help us learn techniques and principles of Thai cooking. I have attended too many such classes where one only watches as the instructor cooks. I chose this school for 2 classes because their menus had the items I wanted to learn to cook.
We started late. But once net Joy at market, we can’t help but laugh a lot. She explains things well and with lots humor. We left with confidence of duplicating dishes she taught us. Thank you all for the wonderful part of vacation. Tsai chiu & 6 others
Good experience... I like it
We first went to a market with a very enthousiastic funny lady, she told us a lot about the different fresh ingredients we were going to use. This tought me a lot of things I did not know yet! Then we walked to the cooking school, which is lovely decorated and designed. You get to make all dishes of that day yourself, after the head chef demonstrated enthousiastically how to do it and explained what to look for during the cooking process. Afterwards we got to eat everything we made, and it was all so delicious. You are allowed to season the dishes as you like. First you get to taste the dish that the head chef made, and then you can decide for yourself whether you like it more or less spicy/salt/sweet etc. It was awesome and something to remember! Btw, you receive a nice booklet in which all of her recipes are written down and in which you can make your own remarks.
It was fun and easy, food was great, teachers were great. They had water bottles and fans for the market, cold sweet tea to drink at the school.
well organized, friendly staff
When you arrive the external appearance is less than impressive and lowers your expectation. Once inside the experience is great fun. The teachers are keen and engaging, involving everyone and at a good pace. We did the afternoon session and we guessed that the introductory (short) session about ingredients replaced the market tour. The practical session was excellent and you make more than you can eat. Great value, costs a lot less than many others. Hygiene and cleanliness was impressive.
This was a really great experience all around, and well run from start to finish!
A very complete cooking class. Go to the market to know the products, and at school you learn about the main ingredients of Thai cuisine and different techniques. Finally cook different dishes and you end up eating them. For lovers of Thai cuisine and cooking is a great experience
I booked this class last minute and would recommend this to a friend. Its excellent value- guided tour of the market and 4 dishes which filled us up!
I love the teachers, they are all joy and happy, makes me want to learn from them
Great cooking class and tour. We learned 4 dishes that we will definitely be making for our family at home.
I read really positive reviews online and was very excited to learn the skills and philosophy behind the Thai cuisine. All expectations were met, the teacjer rlexplained everything nicely and was easy to understand. The class was very well organised and the food amazing. It was overall a pretty impressiove and great experience to have. Thank you!
The group was a good size and the instruction team was very friendly and open. For the cooking was everything well prepared and explained in step by step process, so you could follow well along. The recipes were also very delicious. Definitely worth a visit.
Our family of four attended the cooking class to learn how to cook Thai food. We love the staff and the main teacher, Fai. Our 14 years old son was nervous but her good sense of humor and attentiveness put him at ease and he had a great time! We also celebrated our daughter’s sweet 16th Birthday. The nice touch with the cake at the end was wonderful! Thank you Fai and staff for a great time, delicious food, and informative recipes! Last but not least, thank you for making my daughter’s 16th sweet Birthday memorable!
Wonderful experience with a great host and great food. Very slick operation but great fun
Had an awesome time making the dishes. Plenty of help to guide us through and I would feel confident making everything at home.
it was very nice experience. tasty, fun
All was arranged well. Classroom is comfortable, clean n staff all very friendly. We will be back soon for another class.
Highly recommend - great value
The markt tour was not what i expected. We went to a small markt and stopt at 4 shops to get some information about the ingredients we were gonna use. Once we went to the cooking class the real fun started. The instructor was great and everyone was very helpful. The food was awesome.
A good learning experience and gaining knowledge of Thai spices and vegetables at the market tour.
Learning to cook thai recipes at Sompong Thai cooking school was an amazing experience. The information presented was excellent and all steps in the cooking process were expertly explained therefore easy to follow. The kitchen class room was well set up , clean and organised. The ingredients were fresh and prepared ready to go. The food we cooked was so delicious. It was a great way to spend time in Bangkok learning about local ingredients and how to cook them .
This course was really professional and funny and the food was delicious. I highly recommend it!
I will go again!
Une super expérience, même pour les non initiés à la cuisine comme moi ;). L'équipe est vraiment très sympathique et dynamique, nous avons reçu plein de conseils avec humour et bonne humeur. Je recommande vivement !
Enjoyed the cooking and the eating after!
The tour through the foods in the market was helpful and informative. Our cooking director was fantastic (funny and knowledgable of not only cooking techniques for Thai food but cooking in general). Would recommend to anyone traveling here especially if you don't have a ton of experience cooking and/or eating Thai food!
Scheduled to take the course on April 11 and had to reschedule to April 12, they made accommodations without any issues. The walk through the market in the morning was very informative. The course was very well organized and the instructor had a great sense of humor and made the cooking experience very enjoyable. I would highly recommend taking this course if you have not taken it before.
Superb insight into Thai quisine, culture and cooking. From beginning to end a professional outfit delivering top quality instruction, food and memories - I can't wait to put the knowledge learned here into practice at home. When looking around at which course to choose there are hundreds to choose from so we picked one based on the menu that contained the foods we've been enjoying the most whilst we've been in Thailand: Paneng and Pad Thai - we also got two extra dishes of Papaya salad and a banana desert. We found our way to the meeting point where we were met by a friendly member of the Sompong team who greeted me by name and safely loaded us and the rest of the group into his SUV for the two minute ride around the corner to the cookery school. Upon arrival the professionalism continued; we were provided with sandles to wear in the kitchen, an apron, cloth to wipe our hands, a cook-booklet and a bottle of water. We then had a full briefing on the session and layout of the class, from the most enthusiastic and friendly assistant. She then proceeded onto the initial content of the session. As we were the afternoon group the morning market was over so we were given a show and tell presentation on a range of typically Thai ingredients that we might come to use. This was brilliant for me and gave a real insight into the pallette of scents and flavours used in all of the dishes I've eaten in my travels. We were then given some great instruction in four fantastic Thai dishes (I shall omit the detail - you can learn for yourself when you visit) The kitchen was staffed with a team of assistants to seamlessly transfer between dishes and stages. The assistants helped remind us of timings when it was our turn to imitate. The final spread was something to behold (see pictures) and was super filling. We took away a supper in boxes to enjoy once we're able to eat some more!
Explained many ingredients of Thai cooking well. Steps to cook our dishes were clearly explained. Food variety was very good. Lots of staff to help you and keep the session activities going smoothly. A great experience!
It was so interesting to learn how to cook thai food and to experience thai culture! The instructors are so helpful and friendly. The facilities are very clean and neat. Also, all the ingredients were so fresh.
The class was really nice and interesting. We learned how to cook 4 different meals and we also got a small recipe book. The room was very bright and clean. The teacher was also very friendly and funny. It exceeded our expectations, definitely recommended!
The instructor, assistants and the menu are all superb! Will definitely recommend this cooking class to my friends.
Teacher and Crew were very helpful and I‘ve learned a lot about Thai cooking.
Proper class, where you learn not even how to cook delicious dishes, but also about ingredients!
Excellent class. Very well structured and teacher was very good at explaining and guiding us in our participation. Highly, highly recommended
Fai was an excellent tutor, we were so full and felt very accomplished afterwards!
We had such an incredible experience at the cooking school. The instructor Fye (I cant remember the spelling of her name) but she was so informative and friendly. We were shocked by the amount of dishes we were taught to make. The market tour was also amazing. Shopping and learning of the different foods and spices was really eye opening and gave an indepth look into Thai culture through food. Thank you for such an amazing experience. I am on my way back home to try all of the dishes we made. Hopefully they come out just as good!
I loved the class. The teacher was engaging, sweet and funny. Everyone including me were having a blast. All the school employees were so helpful and always smiling, taking our pictures, which is a very nice touch. I will recommend this class to my friends and maybe will take it again some time.
Our instructor had a beautiful sense of humour and we had so much fun learning about new vegetables in the market and how to cook new dishes. We were all so proud of ourselves for creating such tasty dishes. This is my 3rd class and I will definitely go again, and again, and again. It's a fantastic introduction to Thai food and culture, as well as being really enjoyable.
Well as a starter I’m not someone who writes reviews, but this experience deserves one! It was such a lovely atmosphere. The instructor managed to explain all the details and kept it fun, she also didn’t fail to make everyone laugh a bit. The menu was also good and easy to follow. So you feel like you really learned a lot and at the same time like you can actually master Thai dishes haha.
Multiple menu choices, super staff, amazing food. Also suitable for people who don't cook a lot.
A must do cooking class, well organized, clean, super enjoyable, tasty food and great hints on preparing and cooking at home. We also received a cookbook to take home. We were taught to make 4 dishes and had prepared them together, each cooking your own dish, then eating together. Total of 12pax in our group divided up in groups of 4 and shared fun and laughter.
Very interesting class, and will attend it with my family next time
The way to meet them was not exactly perfect, but everything else was great!!
Amazing food and experience!
This is my second class. I enjoyed it. Staff pays attention even though there are many of us needing attention when hands-on.
This was the third class I have done, as I do one whenever visiting my son in Bangkok. Not only is it a wonderful learning experience with a fabulous teacher and her support team, it is also a lot of fun. The food you cook is amazing and easily duplicated once you are home, plus you learn tips to cook like a chef and learn about Thai culture. I will continue to take classes during future trips here. Thanks for a super fun time, once again. I highly recommend it.
Best cooking class I’ve ever been to. Fai our market guide and teacher was fabulous. A must when visiting Bangkok.
It was a great experience! The chef is nice and helpful. The food is easy to cook and delicious. I will join the class again!
The class was fun & we had learnt the ingredients & some of them are very unique in Thailand. Will surely recommend to my friends to have this special cooking experience😉
Very enjoyable day
Very fun cooking class at Sompong Thai Cooking School. I learned a lot, and look forward to preparing the recipes shown. The recipe book gift was a very nice surprise as well. Highly recommend.
Very informative yet so much fun! Instructors were knowledgeable and personable! Classrooms very clean and plenty of space for everyone. Loved this cooking class! It was perfect, I have no complaints and would highly recommend.
The class is super educational, and is amazingly well laid out. Staffs are very attentive, friendly, and crack up jokes every then and there I don't feel bored at all. It's very eye-opening to see the delicacy of Thai cooking. Plus, it's also child friendly. The family (a mother, and a daughter) sharing the same table as me seems to enjoy it very much. I feel a bit more confident after taking the class.
We did the class with the kids. People was very helpful with them. Dishes we cooked were very fine. Take aways were provided to cook some dishes back home.
Fun and entertaining, and the food they show you how to make is delicious!
The class was speedy, all so well prepared and through. We learned a lot in the class, and it’s kids friendly also. We cannot believe we get to cook and enjoy as many as 5 dishes! The class is long, but we get to eat in between, so I recommend to go with empty stomach. Very professional and sincere approach. I very much enjoyed.
This is great experience if you are into the local culture and food. I have been Bangkok a few times before and this is very first time taking cooking class. The instructor was fun and passionate and class size is a bit bigger than i thought, but still got lots of personal attention. Highly recommend and it is also a great value!
Had such a great time! Really easy to follow! I loved the suggestions to change up flavors. I highly recommend this class for everyone!
It was nice because after watching the instructor everyone in the class made the dish.
Experienced first class cooking with them! The group i was with were very funny and we laughed altogether while doing the class. I may not know them, but i think i found a quick family away from home . We learned a lot together, especially during the market tour. We connected with the locals, and the best part was cooking authentic Thai food. Who would have thought tourists like me would be able to cook such great food in just a day. This is highly recommended and will be back for more!
Went there as a way to spend time with friends during our trip and it was one of my top highlights of the trip. Would highly recommend it. Plus the food was absolutely delicious
It was pretty cool! We really enjoyed it.
The class was so cool! Even though we participated in the afternoon class (no market visit) I learnt so much about the different vegetables & spices and ways to cook them! The teachers were so much fun!
It was the third time that I went for a cooking class in Thailand on different occasions and this was the most enjoyable with an excellent teacher.
Well worth a visit if in Bkk,nice people,nice food and good all round experience.
We're familiar with Thai cuisine and cook Thai dishes at home quite often, but Sompong Thai Cooking Class still taught us a lot we didn't know. The experience was very authentic and immersive and the instructors were very friendly and attentive.
The course is well arranged, and the instructor is enthusiastic. The most impressive part is that they introduce the essential elements of Thai cuisine in such an amusing way. Definitely would like to attend another class next time traveling Bangkok.
The morning class with the short market tour was awesome. The cooking classroom was set up very well. The four dishes were amazing. I highly recommend this class.
Loved the lesson on Thai spices and herbs. It was not just informative but very entertaining !! Same with the cooking lesson. Not only was it fun to cook but the teachers were entertainers. The ingredients were fresh and lessons clear to follow. Everything was clean and declious but we made way too much food!! It was delicious but too much to each so they offered to pack it up for us to go.
Fun, entertaining, educational!! Highly recommend to everyone!!!
I had the most amazing experience with this cooking school. Everything was amazing - staff, food, kindness, cleanliness of school. So happy to have attended such a fantastic class!
Cooking instructions is clear and easy to follow. Facilitator is experienced and facilities is well equipped.
A really great class. The teacher (Tearn) was superb - clear, knowledgeable, witty. Facilities were excellent. A fabulously enjoyable and informative experience.
Had a wonderful time during market tour and class! Brilliant chef and assistants! Instructions were clear and easy to follow! Will bring my family next time!
The lecturer is very clear in expressing how and where the different tastes of sweet / sour / spice / salty come from. This definitely helps us to add / reduce during cooking to suit our personal favour preference.
Learning about the ingredients in the local market was cool to see. Using these ingredients to make portions of the recipe from scratch, instead of store bought, was fun and made the food extra delicious. Everyone was very helpful and the class was fun, insightful, and a great experience!
It was fun and very well organised.
This class is a great introduction to Thai culture, from the market experience and information about all the new strange vegetables, to the very friendly, easy cooking instruction. It was such a sense of acheivement to be able to cook such delucious dishes, and then enjoy a lunch that we had prepared ourselves. The staff are so organized, friendly and fun.
真心觉得这家专业的泰式烹饪学校非常值得推荐给朋友们! 这次来泰国前，在网上看到这家厨艺教室的介绍，以及网友们给予的极高评价，所以就决定报名参加了，果然不虚此行啊! 这家学校专为旅客开班授课，一星期开班7天，而且每天都教不同的泰式料理，所以旅客们可以依据自己的时间行程，选择自己想学的料理来安排上课时间。 整个课程包括:老师带领你上当地的菜市场，让你认识当地的食材、酱料，导师也会在市场介绍和讲解当地的一些特色蔬菜的名称，以烹调及食用建议，然后还会带着你去採购当天要煮料理的食材，最后步行一段路回到厨艺教室里，跟著老师的教法一步一步地学习烹煮出一道道美味的泰式料理，整个学习过程非常轻松，有趣，流程非常的井然有序。导师除了教导烹饪技巧，还会穿插讲解泰国的饮食文化，教你一些简单的泰语(课程以英语讲解)。 来了泰国这么多次，真心觉得这趟旅程让我留下最难忘和最美好的旅行记憶的一次! 我们这一天所学的料理菜单有: 凤梨咖哩蝦虾 Prawns curry with pineapples 自制红咖喱酱 Home made red curry paste 辣炒鸡 Stir fried spicy chicken 泰式嫩蛋沙拉 Spicy Thai omlette with herbs salad 芒果糯米饭 Mango sticky rice
Really recommend this class, the staff were lovely and very well organized and I really enjoyed every minute of it- plus the food was delicious!
I would recommend the cooking class to my friend. Had an enjoyable morning market tour, learning different types of vegetables that I never knew existed. Instructor was fun and funny at the same time. It's worth the money for a local Thai cooking lesson.
Good fun and we learnt a lot
What a great way to learn the art of Thai cooking- by traditional method, and some good short cuts. Come hungry too!
The teacher is kind, helpful and funny. I.have a wonderful experiences. Next time I.will take a class again for new menu. My favorite.moment is make rose.with tomato and my favorite menu.is tom yum goong.... super super class.
I took a couple of cooking classes while in Bangkok and this was by far my favorite. It is incredibly well organized and the instructors were engaging and fun. The recipes we cooked were simple and delicious and we even received copies of the recipes for the entire week's menu. Highly recommend!
A fantastic day , the staff were so nice and made you feel straight at home. The food we cooked was fantastic and we learnt so much. We love Thai food but this has inspired us to learn more. Thank you
Need to say BIG thanks to all the staff there, they are so friendly and helpful! Hope I can visit the school again during my next visit to Bangkok!
The class commenced very good orientation for learners to enjoy the learning provided by the instructor. It was fun and interesting, this day is something experience different food from our home. Thanks again for the great day.
The instructor was very humorous and class was very organised. Kitchen is clean. We all enjoyed ourselves.
Loved this cooking class. The information was pertinent and helpful as an expat living in Bangkok. The cookbook includes pictures of spices used which is helpful when looking for them at the markets. The instructions and demonstrations were excellent and made it easy to whip up our own creations. I learned new prepping skills as well. Overall an excellent experience!
The class was professional organized with plenty of hands on time. The staff are very helpful and keep everything fun and easy. Premise is very clean. Would recommend that to anyone.
Will cook the salad again at home
This is the great memories in this Thailand trip, we learn a lot about Thai food, the teacher is so nice and profession, tell all about the Thai ingredients and the cooking skill...show us step by step. We have big fun in the class!!
It was a nice experience to learn how to cook Thai Cuisine. Everything are well-prepared and very clear
The class was fun, definitely we will come back in the near future
Patient, cheerful, comfort environment. Most importantly, recipes is easy to learn and delicious.
Very detailed & value for money
Teaching is funny and interesting. We really enjoyed the class.
This course was excellent, very professionally organized and the host and staff were entertaining, informative and very professional. The course was easy to get to via the MRT and they arrived at the meeting location on time, after the course was finished it was a quick 5 minute walk back to the station. The meals we prepared were easy to cook and very tasty. The market walk was informative and worth while. I would recommend this course highly and definitely value for money.
Wonderful people, delicious food!
The class was great the staff were really sweet and helpful. I didn't like being barefoot through out the class. I wish they noted that so I could have brought socks.
The instructors where really detailed and made the class a lot of fun to follow. It was truly enjoyable
A equipe da Sompong veio nos buscar no metrô, o motorista nos levou até o mercado onde a professora nos mostrou todos os ingredientes, diferentes tipos de especiarias, vimos a fabricação artesanal de leite de coco fresco,... Após o tour no marché, retornamos a escola. A sala era confortável, com ar condicionado, bebemos chá de lemongrass e chá Thai, cada receita foi demonstrada pela prof, podíamos experimentar e em seguida cada um precisava preparar seus ingredientes e cozinhar sua receita. Fiz outro curso de cozinha mas esse foi o melhor! Instruções bem claras, livro de receitas ilustrado. Amei!!!! Os melhores pratos da Tailândia são os dos cursos de culinária!
It was enjoyable to cook with different people and having a conversation and foods with them.
It was good to cook with other people from different countries and I had fun while I was cooking and having foods that I made.
The delicious food and nice explanation of the makings.
We werden netjes ontvangen bij het BTS-station en in een auto naar een verzamelplaats gebracht. Netjes, maar niet echt nodig. We hadden het stukje zelf ook kunnen lopen. Na afloop word je namelijk niet teruggebracht en moet je ook zelf lopen. Je krijgt een mandje met een flesje water en een waaier. Het eerste deel is een bezoek aan de markt. Je bezoekt drie kraampjes en hebt daarna 15 minuten de tijd om zelf nog wat rond te lopen. De kok laat je veel dingen ruiken en proeven. Het nut van de mandjes is mij niet helemaal duidelijk geworden. Ik had ook graag iets langer op de markt wilen rondkijken. Daarna loop je naar de kookschool. Het is een grote school met drie verdiepingen. Alleen de toiletten beneden mogen wat schoner er uit zien. Verder is het overal zeer schoon. Je begint met een welkomstdrankje. In ons programma stond dat je ook een snack zou krijgen, maar die kregen wij niet. Daarna begonnen wij met koken. Het is voordoen en nadoen. Je mag kijken, ruiken en proeven en daarna zelf aan de slag. Na afloop eet je alles wat je hebt gemaakt. Je ontvangt tevens een uitgebreid kookboekje. Je wordt niet teruggebracht. Je moet zelf te voet verder. Als je al iets van de Thaise keuken weet, neem dan een gevorderde klas bij een andere kookschool. Als dit je eerste keer is, boek dan hier. Het is goed georganiseerd, men neemt de tijd voor je, je leert voor het eerst Thais koken, je mag het opeten of meenemen en men is zeer vriendelijk.
Very informative and interesting.
Really loved this cooking experience, the market tour was great! Food was delicious
The cooking Class was well organized and we were able to cook ourselves a delicious dinner. Everything has been explained in detail also the herbs and the other ingredients. Our teacher was very profesional and funny. During dinner we also had a very nice talk to the other participants.
Really well organized, the staff was super prepared and efficient. Food tasted great and seemed so easy to make! And the bonus recipe book is really awesome and appreciated☺
The host was great at explaining the different type of food
Tienen el tour y la clases muy armadito todo, es básico, podría ser un poco más profesional.
This being my first ever Thai cooking class I really didn't know what do expect. Everything was perfectly organised: from pickup to stroll over the local market with explanations of different herbs, vegetables and the production coconut cream and milk to allocation of groups, menus etc. Our teacher Than was very knowledgeable and precise explaining everything step by step. The choice of dishes was fabulous and the preparing as a group and cooking as an individual was really great. It didn't feel like a cooking class, but rather being in a Thai family home with a rather large kitchen. Even the staff working in the background were brilliant, preparing and cleaning while we were cooking. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely go again for another course. Well done!
Food was delicious. Teacher was funny
We really enjoyed our Thai cooking class. The instructors were very funny and easy going. The food we made was delicious - some of the best Thai food I’ve ever had! Everyone got to bring home a cook book and I’m looking forward to trying some other dishes. Great experience in Bangkok!
It was a great way to spend some time in Bangkok learning how to make a couple of local dishes. My teacher, Preaw, was competent, knowledgeable and quite funny. I was instructed upon booking to meet at Chong Nongsi skytrain station at 9am. But we didn't start cooking till much later. Perhaps there could be an option to meet at the cooking school and to skip the market visit if participants are familiar with Asian/Thai ingredients already. Overall, though, the class was a nice way to meet locals and foreigners, and learn more about Thai cuisine and culture. Thanks! Kim Singapore
Enjoy the cooking class very much, will definitely recommend to friends! Very well explain and I learned different variety of vegetables !
This was the most outstanding class with the following strengths: a fantastic menu of items to learn to cook, the functional and clean facilities, the talented instructor, the time allowed and the instruction provided for each delicious dish, the recipe book, the trip to the market, and the explanations at the market. I strongly recommend this class over the other classes available in Bangkok!
Wonderful cooking class & cultural exchange experience. Great time to cook with mum & family !
We loved every moment of this class, from the market tour at the beginning to eating our food at the end! We got to make a variety of dishes, they tailored the level of spiciness and seasoning to each individual, and the teacher was fun and entertaining as well as helpful. You will not regret booking an experience at Sompong Thai Cooking School!!
This class is the best for many reasons. The teacher and the cooking school facility are both fabulous, the combination of recipies were outrageously delicious, and the menu was the best combination of any school in Bangkok. The market tour was valuably informative and educational. The opportunity to shop while at the market was greatly appreciated. The meetup place was very easy, and it was simple to get back to the people mover afterwards. So love the history of the school and wish the family the best of continued success! I recommend everyone to take a class from Sompong Cooking School
I am not sure hows the arrangment from BTS station to market, as a lady chef approached me and my friend at BTS station and sent us to meeting point vide motorcycles, but when I arrived at the meeting point, I was informed to walk to another block of building as there are many different cooking classes. A bit messy there. Apart from this, I do enjoy the visit to market and the cooking class conducted by Chef Prin, he explained very clearly each step before cooking and is a fun guy. I would like to give 5 stars rating to Chef Prin.
The teacher is patient and enable us to cook in happiness surrounding , thanks somphong Thai cooking school
Really enjoyable, delicious food, great materials and fantastic and thorough instructor. The food was super fresh, really informative - we learnt o much even though we lived in Thailand for a number of years! Highly recommend going, and will go again!
Very well organized ! A very packed 5 hours and all were well spent ! From market to preparing real authentic curry paste, we managed to cook full four course Thai cuisine ourselves and they are all yummy !
I only can recommend this cooking class. It was well prepared and everybody showed big commitment and was very engaged. An unforgettable experience in Bangkok.
Prin and the rest of the staff were patient, entertaining, and easy-going. We felt relaxed and at home yet learned a lot about Thai ingredients, cooking, and culture. I'm glad we chose the morning class that included the market tour because it added a lot to the experience. Pro-tip for party people... they take a 15 minute intermission at the end of the market tour to give folks time to buy things at the market or grab a coffee.... and the coffee shop just outside the market (Warm Up Coffee) makes great specialty coffee drinks and can and will will Irish it up for you.
Fun, informative and easy to do.
I cook, thai, but i am sure a better cook now. Market trip was very informative and interesting. In local thai, wet and dry food market. School was well equipped, clean and spacious. Each dish was demonstrated then you have to cook it yourself, and the best bit, eat it. A great way to spend a relaxing day in the city. The teacher was funny, and she certainly knew her stuff...the other staff were super efficient but friendly too. Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed this class and would recommend it to all. We had a child in our group, it really is suitable for everyone. It was very professional and our guide was brilliant, she was skilled, funny and made sure we were all at the same point throughout the class so no one got left behind. The trip to the market was great, it was a local market not a tourist market. We made so many meals we were all stuffed by the time the class ended! Great facilities, very clean and they have wifi not that you'll need it as you'll be too busy cooking! When we got to the school cold cloths and water was provided which is very much appreciated. Pleanty of photo opportunities throughout sontakenyour cameras. You make a few meals by yourself and a few in small groups which is fun. Easy to get to this class from the sky train and they meet you in aprons so you know who you are looking for and they drive you to the market to meet the rest of your group. The class is taught in English. You get a recipe book which has your dishes in and also lots of other Thai dishes to try. All in all a fantastic day we will never forget!
teacher is nice and helpful with detailed explanation . food are delicious.
Wonderful way of getting to now thai cooking for a beginner. Informative brochure was distributed biving a chance to cook at home. Highly recommended!
Very good organisation. Funny and interesting markettour. Clean and cosy kitchen. Super friendly and funny teacher. We learned a lot and would recommend the lesson all over again! Thanks for this wonderful trip into the "Thaikitchen"!
We loved it! Great going!
I can't really think of anything that could have made this class better. We started with the market tour, which was brief but full of some good information. Then we carried the ingredients (you don't actually do any of the shopping, but you are shown some of the ingredients you'll be using) back to the class. The classroom is extremely well organized, with a few employees working seamlessly alongside the main teacher. The teacher will start by showing you the technique, and then it's off to your station to mimic. They give you a cookbook which includes the recipe you're making, so you can follow along. They have wifi in the classroom, a nice touch. The teacher was extremely affable - funny and clearly an expert. I enjoyed it immensely and highly recommend.
It was good and fun!
nice experience, the class is very entertaining and informative. recommended
Cooking instructions simple, book to keep, food delicious, affordable. Went with my mother.
Great price, great food. Did the class with my mom. We both loved it.
pick up point was easy to find and staff in red apron easy to spot. class was fun and the staff made sure everyone was comfortable and answered any question that was asked . food was great . would reckonmend this cooking school to anyone going to Bangkok.
Staff was great, food was delicious, price was right
We loved it. Fast paced, good tips, understanding the ingredients was excellent too.
We had a great time at an adternoon class. It was good to learn about the Thai specific ingredients. We'd chosen a menu to cook and eat, that was different to other Thai cooking we'd done - and we'd certainly learned a few things! The rest of the small group was great (12 in total i think), the location good, spotlessly clean, and the whole course ran like clockwork: very efficient We would highly recommend this course through Sompong Thai Cooking School.
This class was great and was just what I was looking for. The instructors and staff were very friendly and informative, and the food was delicious. Highly recommended.
Really good teaching and thai cooking food knowledge from the pick up at the station to the walk around at the wet market. Cooking ambience was comfortable and easy to understand. Definitely boosted my cooking skills.
Introduce the class to friends
I took the class together with my boyfriend and we were amazed how we could easily, and in a short time, prepare our favourite Thai dishes! The market tour was also interesting, they told us about the different kind of herbs and spices and you could also see how they made the coconut milk, cream and shavings. The cooking area is clean and our instructor was very clear in his explanations. He also made sure that it wasn't a boring dry class off "just-follow-the-steps"! We both loved it!
This class was great, very well presented, highly enjoyable, very highly recommended.
Well worthwhile, highly recommended
Irin has been assigned to our group. She is so funny and very engaging. Clear instructions were given and she makes cooking look so easy. Kudos to her and a job well done.
Nice teacher, good advise, make your life better
I took Wednesday class, depends on the day, the class is different. Thailand specific edible herb, process of coconut milk and important tips of cooking.... A lots of things I learned ! And that Instructor Koi-san was very passionate! Highly recommended !
The class was really awesome! I actually joined the class on the first day in Bangkok and it was great to know the ingredients and recipes before I experience other food. Loved the market tour as Teacher Prin explained in detail and easy. Cooking was so fun and the foods were really delicious. I will definitely visit again in next trip! Must try all of you who visits Bangkok!
Certainly I will recommend to friend
We had an nice day and learned useful about ingridients and techniques.
We really enjoyed the cooking class at Sompong. We first went to the market in Silom, and the chef explained us about the ingredients. It was very interesting to learn more about Thai culture. The cooking class was then held at the cooking school nearby. It is very nice and cozy environment and I really liked our group, so much fun. The teacher is also very friendly and helpful. 5 stars, would do it again!
STCS was well worth it: from the market tour to the comprehensive easy to follow cook book with your individaul cooking station and to top it all, you will be eating all of the food you have prepared. The class teacher is very adept on the subject matter. 5 stars! I will definitely recommend to my friends who will visit Bangkok in the future.
Without a doubt the highlight of our 7 days in Bangkok. One can only see so many temples, but this school was amazing in every detail, and we had the best 4 course meal of the week. Highly recommend. 5 stars all around.
