I really appreciated the market tour as I had attempted to do some shopping on my own prior to taking the class. The guide provided great explanations of ingredients typically used in Thai cooking, which prepared my mindset for the class. Allowing students to choose what they cook was awesome! I follow a plant-based diet, and the staff even noted what I should look for on food labels when shopping. The site of the class is lovely. I really appreciated the cleanliness and the fact that each student had their own gas cook top, pans, and utensils. This was a truly amazing experience. I cook at home every day, but appreciated the cultural culinary experience.
Wir sind 2 Deutsche Pärchen und haben uns für diese Kochschule entschieden, weil sie auch professionelle Kurse für Köche usw. anbietet. Außerdem ist sie sehr gut mit BTS oder Taxi erreichbar. Ich wusste nicht, wie wir 4 Gerichte kochen sollen, aber wir haben es mit Leichtigkeit geschafft. Die Köchin Lekki hat den Kurs sehr witzig und kurzweilig gestaltet. Die Erklärungen waren sehr gut und man konnte alles fragen. Die Rezepte erhält man über die Homepage und kann anfangen mit dem Kochen. Das Essen hat seeeehr gut geschmeckt und wir sind mehr als satt und glücklich raus aus dem Kurs.
Great class, such variety to cook. Teachers were easy to understand. Fresh indigence, market tour was informative. A wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this class!!!
J'ai adoré depuis le tour du marché jusqu'à la dégustation des plats préparés par nos soins avec un chef très pédagogue et disponible. Très bonne ambiance ! A refaire
Very organised and cleverly done. Even with 12 people in the class still got individual attention and the teachers where always there ready to show us what to do next and help. Friendly and happy atmosphere. The food tasted great.
Great cooking class. Very organised, even with many individual menus in one group. Clean cooking space and clear and easy to understand instructions resulting in some yummy food to eat at the end.
Took this cooking class while visiting Bangkok. We took a tour of the market, my instructor explained the various types of vegetables used in Thai cooking. We then walked over to the building were the cooking class was held. It sounds confusing when it says "choose what you want to cook". However when I arrived all the dishes I chose to cook were at my station in on different plates. The other people who were cooking also had the same set up. However when it came to cooking the various dishes, she would call the "appetizers" to be prepared. You would grab the plate with your appetizer dish on it. She then tells the people with the same appetizer selections how to prep their dish. Then would move on to another appetizer dish that needed to be prepared. And so on and so on. It was great! Our instructor was patient with loads of personality, on my next visit back I will definitely by and take another class.
The team was really nice and we enjoyed a great service. The visit at the market was very interesting as we learned a lot about the local ingredients. We cooked all of or chosen meals step by step and learned how to make a basic curry paste, which was great. It tased so good! Thank you for this great class!
Highly recommend the Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy. You start out at a wet market far from the tourist area, learn about ingredients, do all your own prep work, cook, and enjoy the fruits of your labor, all under expert guidance. The cost couldn’t be more reasonable!
I was attending to classes with one more person - it couldn't be better! Such small group gave us opportunity to ask more qestions and got 100% of our's teachers attention. Everything was clear and explained to us. I loved fact that we had oopurtunity to prepare 5 dishes! It was amazing and suprsing for me that you can cook so quickly. Of course, some of ingriedients were preapred before our session started, like already cooked potates or sticky rice - but it was fine and gave us more time for real Thai cooking. I would recomend to anyone who want to try his strength in Thai cuisine - this Academy makes eveything simplier :)
It was a very nice cooking class, We had a market tour, then we cooked the dishes we have selected ! Very interesting and helpful chef. You can even take away your dishes. I truly recommend this cooking class
#1 Flexibility to learn the dishes I want #2 Visibility into seeing my classmates and how their dishes were similar and different in preparation -- really brought home for me the similarities and differences in the curries. #3 Strong knowledge and willingness to take on my questions.
Nice folks, good choices, we’ll organized
This class was wonderful. The instructor was so fun and organized. The menu was delicious, and everything ran so smoothly. I'll be referring this class to all of my friends, and will hopefully have the chance to take it again some day.
Great class, we'll worth it
It was so good!! We totally enjoyed the cooking and walking the market. When we walked through the market our guide explained the different spices and special Thai vegetables. That was very interesting. In the cooking school everybody had his own place where the veggies and sauces got prepared from the students. Our chef was really great, she had so much fun explaining how to cook all the dishes, that makes us have a lot of fun too. We are vegan, so everything that's not vegan was replaced for us. They were really caring, helpful and answered any question we had. We had a great time and the food was soooo tasty!!!
Very well structured and informative. The coach was very funny!
Now we know how to cook Thai food, really nice experience!!!!
The staff was efficient and knowledgeable! The class was fun but we also learned a lot as well. We have already told other people they should go ASAP.
The entire experience was top-notch. The market tour was informative, helping us understand the essential ingredients in Thai cooking. Dao, our instructor, was brilliant, keeping the class flowing and engaging with her wonderful sense of humor. What impressed me the most was that we could pick our own dishes. And that the entire class was cooking a variety of dishes at the same time. This allowed us to learn about he similarities between recipes and how a change of a few simple ingredients is all it takes to make a different Thai dish. What a wonderful opportunity it was since most classes require people to cook the same dish at the same time.
A thoroughly enjoyable day. Choosing the 4 dishes you wanted to learn ( 1 each from a selection of Appetiser, Curry, Soup/salad, and) Stir Fry in-line. Easy trip to On Nut BTS meet the school Rep right at BTS exit. A short (5 min) walk to an informative market session to check out the ingredients, then back to a very professional school setting where everyone had their own cooking station and appropriate level of support from the instructor. We were a group of five - 3 adults and teenage girl (16) boy (14) and everyone loved it. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone. Pat (from Australia) December 2019
Fun/ fast and very nice instructors/helpers. Only thing I wish was I learned my dish all the way through. I get the logistics of the class where everyone does their own part but it is hard to retain my specific meal if I do it in steps then wait for others to do theirs. The food was amazing and well worth the money! If you go with someone else get different dishes to share - trust me you will not be disappointed. I would add more curry in my pineapple fried rice The laab gai was divine. Yum yum yum. What an amazing experience.
Every thing was delicious. Just wish they had given us a little more protein
A great way to discover the Thaie flavors
Me and my friends really enjoyed this class. Got to learn and cook 4 different Thai dishes. I think everything was very well planned and super efficient. Would highly recommend!
Will recommend this class to people visiting Thailand
very professional Chef and very organized
Was the last thing we did in Thailand. Was an incredible experience and very educational. Would recommend!
The class was very informative and fun. All of the food we cooked was amazing! Thanks for showing us how it is done.
Had a short stop over in Bangkok, and decided to take a class as at home I do cook Thai food regularly. I'm really glad I did, I learned several technics for cooking and making powders that I did not know about. Flavor's were spot on, and surprisingly easy to make, well it helps having everything cleaned and cut, and not having to clean up after! Highly recommend coming here if you like to cook, you will be glad you did.
Learnt to cook all my favourite thai dishes. Teacher was humorous and entertaining
Great class, good instructors and well organised
A well organised trip. 10 of us cooking different meals is quite a feat to organise! Christine did an excellent job of keeping us all focused and getting all the meals cooked! We cooked5 different meals each - lots of food and great experience. Highly recommended.
The teacher and the way to teach you is the best , we love it
Was a nice day. I arrived too late for the marked, but the "cooking time" was real fun. The meal was so good.
It was much fun. The chef explained it very good and we cooked a really delicious meal.
My husband and I had a great time. We have nothing but nice things to say. There was soooo much food we couldn’t eat all of it. Delicious foods and educational experience about food selection and culture.
Class was very interesting and clear. The chef was funny, patient and helpful. The Market tour was brief but insightful.
Thai cuisine is very rich in culture and flavour . We have learned a lot and we really enjoyed the whole activity. Instructor is knowledgeable with her craft. She maximised the 2hrs (actual cooking) to teach us 5 different dishes. The venue, kitchen and tools /equipment are also excellent! Great job team.🌶👍🏼
Thanks for a great cooking class! We went home inspired and very full.
The meeting location was easy to find, easy to identify the tour group leader, and a short walk to the cooking school. The teacher spoke in English and was very patient with our team of international cooking students. The group was broken up into three rooms in support of a more smaller and intimate cooking experience. At the end, I received a certificate of my ability to prepare several Thai meals.
the instructor is very knowledgeable and friendly she's conducting the cooking class such that it's very comfortable thank you for the hard work (noticed that she almost lost her voice in the end of the class!
Great value for money and you get to eat and enjoy your own cooking after having a great time while cooking it. :)
The class is full of fun with a nice tutor. The class environment is tidy and everything is well prepared. Enjoyed a lot in the class. Will definitely recommend this class to my friends.
Great day of learning and cooking. The small class was extremely well organized and the chef was top notch giving individual guidance in a light hearted, fun environment.The end result was a fun day ending in a delicious meal. So well done!!
We were a group of 12 ‘chefs’ all cooking 4 individually chosen dishes. The instructor was very friendly and gave clear instructions which were easy to follow. There were also several sous chefs to assist if necessary. Our finished food tasted amazing and if you had any left overs they were bagged up for you to take away if you wanted. The kitchen area was clean and all washing up and tidying away was done for us- perfect!
Learnt the different types of ingredients used for thai dishes. Will definitely try out the dishes again on my own.
Impressive that each person is given a choice to do exactly what they want. The market tour was a little short, I felt
Very informative, cooked 4 dishes that tasted and looked just like the photos. Would definitely recommend, and the head chef kept at a slow enough pace for everybody to follow along.
Very good experience and great food!!!
The class was well organised and lots of fun. It iwas an experience worth taking the time out for.
We absolutely loved the class. It was fun, easy and very informative and the food was fabulous.
From the minute we met our chef the organisation of the class was wonderful. Seeing the market and asking questions about other foods like frogs and turtles etc was also so interesting . The class was so well organised and in English!!! I still can’t believe we cooked all the dishes which tasted out of this word! It is a a ‘feel good ‘ course and I would recommend it to anyone !
Classroom style cooking school. The class started with a short trip to the local market where our teacher talked us through some of the local ingredients that we would be using. We didn't actually buy the ingredients in the market, all the ingredient sets were ready for us when we got back to the school (already split up onto separate trays for each dish and in your work station). Really enjoyed the fact that we prepared everything and then cooked it all at the end, this meant we could all sit down and eat everything we'd cooked at the same time. It was also great that we were able to choose our own dishes - meaning that we could cook our favourites rather than a pre-set menu. In the end we all shared each other's cooking and tried 10+ dishes in total. Be prepared to cook far more than you can eat (we asked them to bag ou leftovers up and we had them for lunch the next day)! A really enjoyable morning.
Wonderful experience, well organised and a very knowledgeable teacher who kept things interesting and was very patient with us. Learnt to cook several delicious dishes, see picture below.
Great course The market tour was informative about the different vegetables used in the dishes. The prep and cooking where both well instructed and easy to follow. The cooking was fun and food cooked tasted great. Second cooking class with Cookly and will probably do it again when next in Bangkok.
Everything was well arranged !
Chef was really good. portioning of ingredients was outstanding.
Though it was only a few hours after our arrival at Bangkok, the meeting place was easy to find. Followed by the interesting market tour, we cooked 5 dishes. Lecky(?), the instructor, was organized, skilled and joyful. I'd recommend the class to any Japanese. Language doesn't matter at all.
It was a great learning experience. I am back home in Canada now and have already used some of the great recipes!
The teacher was not only a good cook but an empathetic listener who could control the most wayward of chefs like me. The preparation was impeccable and the back room support always there and available. It's a must do for anyone interested in Thai food.
good food and learned alot
Very clean organised and friendly at its best! The meals we cooked were amazing! Thank you
The class was very informative and the food was wonderful. Very interesting to see a fresh Thai market. Too much food for 1 person, so make sure you don’t eat before class.
Nice class that catered for novices and more experienced cooks. Chef was clear and encouraging with instructions and had a great team that helped with all the prep work. Nicely paced. The tour to the local market with suggestions for alternative ingredients was helpful. Chef had promised to give us the recipes at the end so we didn’t need to take notes but seemed to hVe forgotten. I emailed her for the recipes but it’s been over a week and nothing yet - very disappointing. Would recommend moreso if got actual recipes
My two daughters (15 and 17) and I took this class on our recent trip to Bangkok. The class was well paced and easy to follow. I'm amazed we made all of the dishes we did in the time allotted. All of the food was delicious. I loved that we were each able to choose the dishes we wanted to prepare.
Knowledgeable and friendly instructors Great class members excited to learn Outstanding facilities and location
Really impressive how they managed many different dishes for all the students. It was well organized and moved along seamlessly. We ate everything and had a great time. Can't wait to cook these at home. Great job to the entire team.
Way worth the money, such a great cooking experience. The food was some of the best we had in Thailand! The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and super friendly. I'm still dreaming of that panang curry, and can't wait to get my own wok and high-powered gas stove.
Overall we really enjoyed this cooking class. We took a short trip to the local market where the woman talked through some of the ingredients we would be using the make the dishes. We then returned back to the school to start cooking. It was good that we got a choice of what meals we wished to cook. The head chef spoke good English and went through everything thoroughly. The dishes all tasted amazing!
I enjoyed the class tremendously. The staff and our chef were very helpful and hands on. Recommend for anyone who loves cooking.... or not!
The cooking class exceeded my expectations. The market tour and learning about Thai produce was fantastic and our instructor was fun and knowledgeable. Brilliant day and highly recommend
Wow! What a lovely class this was. It was fun, educational, exciting. Our teachers went above and beyond to share their cultural and cooking expertise. We highly recommend it!
Very well organised, clear instructions. Everything was well set up and easy for us to follow. It was a fun thing to do on vacation with my mum and teenager! Highly recommend.
Enjoyable and with great results. Had a great time!
This was a great experience. From the hotel pickup, to the market tour, to the dishes, everything was a blast! Can’t recommend this enough to anyone who wants to learn more about Thai cuisine.
It was a nice experience to learn the cooking with different Thai herbs and ingredients. It's fun and the dishes cooked were delicious.
Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. The group was small, 6 people, and the teacher friendly and approachable. From meeting up arrangements through to cooking and eating (amazing), the session was very well organised and I learned a lot. Absolutely recommend.
My husband enjoyed and liked the dishes I cooked . I was able to bring it for him to try...yummy!
I had a great time at this class and learned about all of the proper ingredients to recreate some of the classic Thai dishes. The instructor was really funny and her assistants were great as well. It was easy to find and only lasted until 4 or so when they give you time to eat. It wasn’t wayyyy too much food to eat as one person, though!
Great way to experience and learn more about Thai food! Tour overall was very well organised, market tour in the morning was very informative. Actual cooking class was very hands on, loved the ability to customise the menu so you get to cook all your favourite meals. Be warned: do not eat before you go, you will be given a lot of food!
We were blown away by how organized and kind the staff was. The teacher was funny and sweet and super attentive. The dishes we made were delicious and easy to follow steps to make. Even my partner who never cooks loved the experience and learned a lot. Would recommend to anyone coming to Thailand! An immersive way to participate in Thai cooking culture.
It was a fun & engaging class from the start. We were taught the different ingredients & sauces that make up the dishes. We were able to choose 5 different dishes that we wanted to cook which is much better than a fixed menu. The lady instructor was hilarious & professional too! I would definitely join the class again when I visit Bangkok!
We had joined the cooking class on 18May, where we could choose 5 dishes to cook. Right from the start, it was a fun experience, the instructor was very friendly too. I would definitely join again when I’m in Bangkok next time!
Great experienced and professional staff
My friend and I wanted a diffrent trip than usual sightseeing hence this cooking class falls into one of our itinerary. It was a memorable activity to both of us as for her, she hardly cook buy enjoyed eating her own cooking so much and for myself, I got to learn dishes to be cooked for my kids (spicy-free). We love the class that we can choose our favourite dishes vs other academy that only offer what they wanted to teach. the only setback we experience is seeing other students have many leftover of the food cooked. Would strongly recommend academy to advise student to bring along container to take away their food. We packed our food and have it as dinner too in our hostel. Last advice: DO NOT WASTE FOOD, many people is STARVING in another part of the world. Again, thanks for the experience and see you again LEK... :)
Very practical class, fast teaching but very clear. Best ratio quality/price. Make sure to bring a doggie bag if you have left over to take home cause you'll make a lot of food!
It was great fun, this Thai cooking experience! We were taught by a passionate and talented cook, the explanation was very clear. At first we could choose 5 dishes we would like to make. Then we prepared the food by cutting everything ourselves. The products came very fresh from the market nearby. After that we started cooking all the dishes after each other and at the end we all enjoyed our meal.
Very well organized, always entertaining. Nice venue, great staff. Learned a lot about Thai cooking.
The chef was funny and explained the procedure well. The food was delicious! I can really recommend this cooking class!
It was a great cooking class. I learned so much. Thank you!
The whole cooking process was efficiently delivered and the food turned out amazingly well. The chef was also a funny but nice character. It could have been improved by making it feel more like an experience rather than a Quick process and explaining things abit better. The course mentioned we'd learn to make the deserts as well but we didn't however we were given a desert which they put together.
We recommend this cooking class to any visitor of Bangkok. Food is delicious and to understand all the ingredients is enlightening. Must do!
Really enjoyable. Btw the taste of the dishes is more for tourists rather than authentic Thai flavour
It is my first cooking class overseas and I absolutely love it! The instructor is friendly and funny. She is informative. The pace is good even For someone that don't have much cooking experience like me! No stress.. just pure fun and enjoyment! The facility is also clean and professional. Would definitely recommend to my friends!
We walked around the market next to the cooking school and could explore a bit of the ingredients. Back in the school we could do neatly all by ourselfes, while the cook explained every step we should do. She explained very well, so everyone could follow easily. So we chopped, stirred and cooked everything. It was a nice experience and I recommend that!
It was a great experience!
Loved the class. Excellent instruction. Great results and I feel like I can cook some Thai dishes when I get home. Brilliant teacher too. Fun for all involved.
The head chef was funny. She is good in explaining things. Its was a wonderful experience to go to the market and determine a few ingredients and their characteristics.
My cooking class at the academy was great! The instructor was super nice, patient and funny. The food was to die for and you get to recreate the recipes ar home. I definitely recommend this place to everyone.
I have done many cooking classes in several countries and this was definitely in my top! Good value for money, extremely competent, knowledgeable and organized trainer chefs Daw and Lekkie! I thought the strongest point is that you learn to cook a ton of dishes because every single participant chooses the dishes they want to cook, but then the trainer lists steps and ingredients to all students for all dishes. Recipes were fantastic and way tastier than some I had had in proper thai restaurants. Don’t hesitate! Just book it!
Was fun, informative and well run
we took a thai coming class in Bangkok. it was the highlight of our trip. the instructor was funny and very attentive. she handled all the needs of the class . it was a lot of fun and interactive with the other students, we all got along very well. I would totally recommend this activity for everyone. it was extremely well organized.
This was the perfect length of time and great lesson. The instructor could not have been more lovely and was super at explaining the techniques and ingredients used. A great introduction to Thai cooking.
Great team! Was good to really cook all the dishes by yourself and not just watch others doing it.
Dao made our cooking class a phenomenal experience! We are so pleased with what we learned and really enjoyed cooking and eating such delicious food!
I really enjoyed the experience! The food was really good and I can’t wait to do it again at home.
The market tour was kind of short but we gained knowledge of different types of vegetable. The teacher is good and instruction was clear. Will recommend friends to attend for sure!
It was great how we got to choose our own dishes! My boyfriend was a bit worried that it would be too quick for him but the class was easy to follow and we both had a great time. Our hosts were lovely and made a real effort to make sure everyone was having fun. They have a great selection of dishes to choose from (even Khao Soi) we would definitely recommend!
Very informative. 5 dishes easily prepared with all questions answered. The instructor also showed us the ingredients for each sauce and offered all Recipes prepared in class. I look forward to taking another class.
The instructor, staff, and facility are excellent.
If you enjoy food and cooking this is a must! Expert instruction from the lovely Christine but what she also bought to the experience was a nice friendly and relaxed vibe. I loved the market experience which was an education in itself. The school was well equipped, clean and airy with beautiful views. There are I think ten cooking stations, plenty of room to move around and after your hard work you get to eat your delicious creation along with wine (at a small additional cost). Water is free. The leftovers can be boxed up to take away which is just as well because the portions are big. I loved every minute and will do it again.
Sehr freundlich ,fragen wurden beantwortet, hilfsbereit. Alle haben mitgemacht. Ich werde sicher noch einmal einen Kurs besuchen. Gut gemacht !
I had a ton of fun, it was great that every participant got their own cooking station and got to select their own dishes. I wish the market tour had been a bit longer and that we got to make the curry paste from scratch, but otherwise it was a fantastic experience! Would definitely come back and do another course.
Nice atmosphere, great instruction and beautiful food.
Boss was very patient and told us lots of important things in Thai cooking!
Had a fantastic afternoon cooking 6 different dishes. It was a lot of fun also eating everything after the class was amazing! Would definitely recommend
Overall, it was a great experience. The variety at Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy in terms of dishes we were able to cook, was a bit greater than at other schools I've seen. It was nice to have the option to go a bit outside the typical dish selection of green curry, pad thai, fried rice, etc that all the other schools do and do something like Khao Soi and Pad See Ew and other less-common cooking school dishes. Instructors were friendly, had great english, and the food turned out delicious.
The teacher and assistants were so engaging and made it fun. Our dishes were so delicious and while the cooking process went so fast we really hope we can recreate these back at home. It was a truly memorable day and would highly recommend anyone thinking of doing it to book this event. I had researched so many events and glad we chose this. A special birthday treat for my husband. Keep up the good work!
The class was so great and the instructors were really fantastic. I highly recommend it!
Once we started to cook the ingredients the teacher went a bit too fast but in general I really appreciated this class and I can’t wait to cook it back those delicious meals at home :)
From start to finish this was a very organised and well run operation. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and the food was fantastic! All of the staff were lovely. We were even able to take the copious amounts of food we had made away with us, as there was NO way we were able to eat it all!!!!
I had an amazing experience in Thailand. My 5-day trip was indeed worthwhile. This was a trip and experience to remember. I was able to visit the locals, got to talk to them, and learn from them during the market tour. I also had the freedom to choose my own course and provided me with vegetarian option. Cooking with strangers did not feel weird, instead it felt warm as if you are cooking with your family. Everyone was so kind. And i was able to create a sumptuous dish on my own. I was one with nature and Thai culture. As the day went by, i became to understand how important it is to preserve culture and i was able to bring that learning and experience home with me.
It was a really good experience with my friend.
Happy tummy and happy heart. Our short trip was fun filled thanks to this cooking class. We visited Bang Chak market to get some fresh ingredients. It was clean and the people were smiling and entertaining. We got to choose 5 dishes to learn upon booking and the instructor was so passionate about making us understand Thai culture and shared with us some cool hacks and secrets to Thai cuisine. Since he was energetic, we never had a dull moment during the class. Overall, it was insightful and fun-filled!
The visit to the local market was interesting because the guide took time to introduce and explain to us the local fruits, vegetables, sauces etc.. and gave us time to explore the market on our own to buy what we wanted for ourselves. There were street food as well that we could buy and eat immediately. The cooking school is very cosy and the kitchen is air-conditioned. Instructions for cooking were provided step by step so if you are really slow at learning, you will still do fine. The teachers were very patient and outgoing and we sat together around a table to eat the end product of our many dishes for lunch. It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend this! :)
The whole experience was great. The teacher had lots of enthusiasm and made it fun. Everything was well prepared and the fact that you were able to cook 6 dishes in one session was great. All in all, I would highly recommend this cooking school.
A group of three of us attended and it was great being able to choose dishes that we each preferred and being able to try their options at the end too. The variety was what sold us on this class and we weren't let down. The teacher, Unice, was great. She was easy to understand even giving instructions for multiple dishes at once. I would highly recommend!!
Short market visit, Lot of choice in the menu, that is great. The teaching is more how to prepare the vegetables and then you pour bowl 1,2,3,4 in the pan, and thats it. I am maybe a little severe, food was really excellent, it is so good to eat fresh food intead of these horrible buffet or pre-cooked meal as in many restaurant.
The class was great. We had a very fun, energetic guide for the market tour, and the cooking class itself was informative and interesting. Plus the food was amazing :) would recommend
Lots of fun and tasty dishes.
Unnise made my birthday cooking experience super amazing, the food was prep to perfection, the food was delicious and plenty to take back to our apartment for dinner. The entire staff was amazing!
My wife and I attended this class on the last day of our visit to Bangkok. We regret not attending the class sooner. We learned how to cook several Thai dishes and learned about various types of ingredients used in Thai cuisine during the market tour. We had fun taking this class and recommend it to anyone interested in cooking.
It was a good time, learned to make lots of dishes and found out that Thai cooking is not that hard once you have the right ingredients. One thing I would change is to cook a few courses and then eat them. Not cook all five at once. Best Timothy
I love, love, love this cooking experience in Thailand. Best part is getting able to choose from a long list of dish options. Other programs force you into their standard menu. This was my third time in 3 years and enjoyed it tremendously. One improvement, IMO, was dropping the time consuming and physically challenging process of grinding your own curries and spice mixtures. Historically and culturally interesting, but even Thai people don't do that anymore. Learning how to buy at the Asian grocery store will surely be a much more useful skill once I am back home. (Pro tip: bring a GoPro on a small tripod or clip mount. Cooking 5 Thai dishes can get intense. Having a video helps me remember exactly what I did once the ingredients went into the wok.)
The instructor was awesome! We had so much fun.
Informative, and fun:)
We enjoyed the short tour around the market to see the local product we would be using. The chef explained clearly as we cooked making sure we all ended with 5 incredible meals. It was the best food we ate in Bangkok in the three days we were there....and we made it!
The instructors were very good and made the experience fun.
It was very fun and educational. Instructors made the session easy and interesting. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a different holiday experience.
Very energetic teaching staff, very nice course mate. The arrangement of market visiting, ice-breaking game and cooking are so enjoyable. The food that we cooked were all super tasty!
My son and I absolutely loved our experience with the Bangkok Thai cooking Academy! All staff were very professional, kind and knowledgeable. They catered to our needs nicely and were flexible which we really appreciated! Now that I have more hands on experience with these recipes, I feel ready to duplicate them at home. I am recommending this class to all my friends who visit Bangkok!
This was a professional and well-organized school. Clean, well prepped, and carefully managed and monitored during cooking process. We were able to choose amount 4-5 dishes for 4 courses. (There was a 5th course, a dessert course, that we witnessed but didn’t make.) I liked this element of choice. For dishes with curries, we were told what was in the curry but didn’t actually make it. However, they did give a link to an online site with all recipes which I am excited to explore. The market visit was a vegetable stand in the alley market nearby. We were shown many interesting vegetables and described the flavor and use. The guide and instructor was friendly, full of info, passionate and fun.
We enjoyed the short stroll to the market where we got lots of vegetables explained. Cooking was fun, although i'm not sure who will do all the preparation back at home ;-) the guys had done a good job for us! Everything Is well organized, Anniz tried her best in keeping the lesson fun and educative at the same time.
GREAT time and I feel well prepared with the online recipes provided to cook Thai at home in Canada.
The tour of the market was a GREAT added value and "Wink" was a wonderful guide! Our friends and family back in Canada are all asking for a Thai dinner which will come shortly. Thanks for your help and insights into Thai cooking and culture.
Our teacher Eunice was hilarious and made the day so enjoyable! The instructions were easy to follow and all the food was delicious 😋
We enjoyed the class. The chef was really friendly. Suggest placing the ingredient list on the table for better understanding. If time permits maybe also give a few alternative ingredients for foreigners who are unable to get the intended correct items.
Really nice class and teachers
Super fun.. Know the basic of how to cook Thai food...taste good.. 😍😍
The class was really good, we had a lot of fun. The teacher was awesome, good English skills and managed to coordinate everything, although everyone had a different menu. We enjoyed it and recommend it.
Very nice bunch of instructors assisted the class activities, friendly environment, informative , very well organised
We loved our cooking class, everything is clean, everbody is nice and the recipes are easy and the food tastes very good! We can really recommended this cooking class!!
The staff is very friendly and funny, the entire cooking session was full of laughs. Definitely will come back for the intermediate level next time.
Brilliant class excellent teachers fun funny and restaurant quality results! Highly recommended
The teacher for our small morning group was great and easy to follow. The two young women who greeted us at the meeting point were also very friendly and helpful playing backup roles during the class. That said, I feel like they’re trying to cram too much into too short an amount of time. The “market tour” really wasn’t. We walked to a stall where they’d clearly prearranged with the owner to stand there and show us which vegetables were which. We didn’t actually buy any ingredients there, nor were we shown “how” best to shop at an open-air market like this. It wasn’t at all busy; it would have been easy enough to actually do a short tour. And if that’s not in the cards, then why go at all? The produce lesson could have happened in the classroom I chose this class solely for the ability to pick my own five dishes to learn. I’m glad I did, but even the cooking was not completely ours. Our instructor showed us what went into each dish, and has us chop vegetables but when it was time to cook, other things — mainly proteins — suddenly appeared by our cooking stations. All in all, probably the most I could hope for in a half-day class; next time I’d choose something a bit more intensive.
The class was excellent. The driver picked us up on time. The friendly teachers met us at the market and we started with a short market tour. We learned a lot about different types of traditional Thai food. The school was in a beautiful environment, clean and nice. We learned how to cook one entree, three dishes, and one dessert. The teachers were great. It was an unforgettable experience.
The guide we had was great. Spoke English well, was informative at the market visit explaining the different fruit and vegetables. The cooking class was great, with well explained easy steps. The food we cooked was delicious. Would highly recommend this cooking class and would love to do another one with them the next time we're in Bangkok
It was amazing. The trainer really helps you a lot and everyone is very friendly. Will definitely do it again! ❤️❤️❤️
The fact that you go first to a nearby market and learn about the ingredients before you head to the cooking academy and prepare them creating your chosen meal makes the experience very authentic. Dao was such a good and entertaining teacher. Thanks to her and her assistants, it was absolutely nice to visit.
I enjoyed every aspect of the class. Easy presentation and informative. Very pleasant surroundings. Market section was great. Would love to prepare the curry pastes etc myself. Perhaps another time. Online recipes and instructions are great reminders of the processes shown and used in the class.
Lots of cooking classes in Bangkok, but you can't go wrong with this one!
Had a fun morning and learned a lot about Thai ingrediënts and cooking. The Chef was funny and Clear in her indtructions
Thoroughly enjoyed learning Thai cooking at this class. The instructors were great and taught us to cook several dishes in under 4 hours.
Absolutely love being able to cook FIVE different authentic Thai meals. We had as much freedom as a cooking class on a schedule could offer. I enjoyed that not everything was pre prepared in that we still cut all of our own veggies and such. We also fully cooked all of our meals. I was happy with all my meals but I had friends that loved the experience but were not the most satisfied with their final meals. Definitely one of the better cooking classes in Bangkok!
We enjoyed so much Teacher was professional Dishes were big portions
Great market tour and class. Fun and knowledgeable staff. Have already recommended it!
It was a good experience and we got a chance to be juste three of us! Nice place to cook good ambiance and Seen a good instructor!
The class was fun and we made some tasty food. We attended the class with an 8 and 10 year old and they also enjoyed the class and the food. The instructors were informative and entertaining and I would recommend attending the class.
My wife and I love to eat and cook! If you enjoy that too this is the class for you. The class was very fluid and informative. The communication was great and the course was full of satire. GREAT STAFF!!!
I got chance to visit local markets before cooking the really authentic Thai food.
Loved the cooking class ! Teachers were friendly and fun ! It was well organized and hands on. Def would come back to take some more classes.
I recommend this cooking class to my friend.
We loved the experience. It was interesting going to the market & having some knowledge of the vegetables & herbs. The teacher Sin was good fun. So well organised & good value.
great to have such opportunity to cook thai food
Cours de cuisine avec 3 ami.e.s à Bangkok, nous étions 10 participant.e.s en tout. La visite du marché était un peu courte et succincte mais le cours de cuisine a été une réussite ! C'est super de pouvoir choisir quels plats on souhaite cuisiner et de les déguster à la fin ! Même si la cheffe est parfois peu patiente et a tendance à faire à notre place dès qu'elle trouve qu'on est trop lents...
Spoke good English, was informative and easy to follow. Good fun and good food
We really enjoyed the cooking class. We learned a lot on the market and it is nice, that you can choose different dishes. Even for vegetarians it is delicious and gluten free cooking is possible as well. The sauces and herbs were all prepared. So we didn’t do the measuring ourselves.
Teacher was nice and the atmosphere was good! We enjoy the class very much!
There was plenty of friendly and knowledgeable bilingual staff (Thai, English, Spanish). They all helped us work through each recipe smoothly and efficiently. Each recipe was portioned our prior to arrival and Scene was fun and knowledgeable, teaching us about each type of ingredient. Our class was 8 people in total and that was a perfect number so no one got left behind. My group of 5 family members with different cooking experience would totally do this again!
Convenient location, very nice staff and highly recommend for friends!
Thanks for a wonderful experience, Ben. Your school is highly organise and very enjoyable. Top marks and five stars.
We had a great learning basic Thai cooking. The food was awesome.
Originally dragged to the cooking class, but left thoroughly satisfied. We were given great instruction, the environment was fun, and the food was so so good! Highly recommend to all.
What a great experience myself and my husband had. The market tour was very interesting and we got to see things we had never seen before. The cooking class was brilliant and the guide made it very easy to understand. We made some gorgeous dishes and met some lovely people. Definitely recommended.
Enjoyed my day!
The course was really well organised. The two chefs really knew what they were doing and had the seven of us each preparing, and cooking, 5 different courses, all at the same time. I certainly will return to take another cooking class.
This class catered for the individual choices - not a one stop shop.
Class was so much fun and well ran. Food was very tasty, environment was clean, and instructor did a great job. Definitely would recommend this location as a fun experience for anyone looking to spend a few hours learning to cook some Thai dishes.
Good general knowledge shared in the market showing us the herbs and explaining the used and benefits. We had very good guidance in preparing the food and cooking. Sharing some tips from the other participants too, we had 3 vegetarians and how the Chef adjusted ingredients was very useful. Very good value for money. Thx Guys
It was super fun. The techers and helpers are very nice and helpful. The market tour is fruitful. The dishes we made were very yummy.
The option to select your own dishes is a big plus when compared to other cooking class. We had a lot of fun learning about different Thai ingredients and instructor was humorous which makes the class more engaging. Most importantly the food tasted home cook and we could adjust the spicy level to our taste. This means we could thoroughly enjoy the labor of our morning. I recommended it to my friends instantaneously and would return in the future.
Bank was a wonderful chief. Full of information, engaging and funny. He, and the other staff were friendly and patient with our many questions. I would recommend this class!
We enjoyed it very much and learned many new tricks.
The chef was great had good humour and knew what he was doing. The food that we cooked tasted great. The market tour was interesting as well
It was very difficult to find and contact the class. The cooking class was nice to do. It all goes fast so I hope the recipe on the internet will give a good explaining
I am very glad I came across Phuket Cooking Academy! It was a very good way to spend half a day in Phuket learning Thai cuisines. The market tour prior to the cooking class was a nice touch and we really appreciated the inclusion of hotel pick-up and drop off. The place itself was clean and the view was a wonderful surprise. Would overall recommend this activity and the Phuket Cooking Academy.
Das ganze war sehr gut organisiert. Die Gerichte waren top vorbereitet und MiuMui und Say waren sehr kompetent. Ein Lob auch den beiden Ladies die immer alles sofort abgewaschen haben. Das ganze war eine Freude von Anfang an bis zum Schluss. Ich werde wiederkommen, wenn ich das nächste Mal in Kathu bin. Weiter so 👍👍👍 Beste Grüsse Gabriella
Great class, excellent format, great instructors. Good selection of meals as well.
We loved it!!! Very informative, and so much fun. And the food was yummy too
The idea of each participant choosing the dishes he /she wants to learn is brilliant. I would not recommend the class for raw beginners. From the instructions given I got the feeling the instructor assumed the participants all had previous cooking experience. The group was small,only 4, and all of us got along well. All in an enjoyable experience
Great class so much fun
The instructor was hilarious, we had so much fun learing how to cook great Thai food. Would recommend to anyone.
From the moment we arrived we started to learn about the Thai cooking culture. We enjoyed looking at the markets. The cooking area felt clean and everything was well prepared. We had lots of fun cooking our chosen meals. Thank you!
The tour of the market was interesting and informative. The cooking experience was fun. The food was delicious 😋
We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking experience. I am not a cook and worried I would look silly. On the contrary, I completed all my courses confidentially and they tasted great. The building, view and ambience were fabulous. I feel comfortable to come home and make a couple of the dishes. I think this is great value for money.
We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Would recommend to novice and experienced cooks.
Hope to have much choices of the dishes, and recipes to be given out before class starts so we can drop down some notes when needed , I went to the recipe link but have to try to recall some steps and sequence of preparing and cooking, so will prefer we can drop down notes during the classes.
nice choices, nice atmosphere, do it yourself balanced with preportioned help.
Lots of variety and informative chef. Well organised and very enjoyable.
It was so organized and informative. I love cooking and this taught me so much. The teachers were great and so much fun. I am planning on more classes and bring my friends. Great job.
We enjoyed the class so much! Can meet friends from different countries, cooked and ate together. Suggest if the menu can have more variety.
Well organized, a lot of informations about the ingredients on the market and at school.A lot of fun, delicious food. Recipes of the dishes you have chosen to cook.
The class was very well organised. You can choose 5 different dishes at your liking. The food was great quality and the class was not too big in size. All staff was super friendly. I was really impressed and on top of all, it was one of the cheaper classes I could find. A great experience...thank you.
Loved it all the dishes were delicious!! I highly recommend this class.
Really great class with a nice teacher. I was with 4 kids (from 14 to 17). We cooked 4 different meals each on 2 hours Everything was fine
Best cooking class I've ever attended! The tour to the market gave much needed background information to the food we made. The classroom was spacious, clean and air-conditioned. The room set-up was perfect for older people as we were able to sit most of the time to prepare our food (nice touch for my 80 year old mom with knee problem). The menu was great (since we can choose our own dishes). The chef is highly capable, confident and humorous. Hours filled with fun and excitement flew by and at the end, we left the class with wonderful memories and the ability to make authentic Thai food. Can't wait to try the recipes when I get home.
Is a very rare experience. That day we have a total of 11 students together on the cooking class, the teacher is very clear to different students to learn the materials and projects, very clearly explain and teach one by one, the whole process is very smooth and no difficulty, I and children learn together feel Happy to be promoted.

Really good instruction and very happy with the results, but it ended too quickly.
I really appreciated the opportunity to select my own menu!
The ambiance and the location of the class were both terrific. It was great to go to the market first and learn about the ingredients even though we didn't actually purchase all the specific ingredients for the class right at that time. The class was very well organized, ran smoothly and we made lots of food and could even take home leftovers. It was great to get the recipes too. The class teacher King did a very good job. HIghly recommended.
I highly enjoyed the class. It's amazing to select your own menus!
Especially I really liked that I can pick the dishes what I will learn. It was very fun to make Thai food and eat! I will take this class again for different menu if i would visit Bangkok in the future
wonderful experience to have the cooking class with ben! is really great fun！ will come back soon!
It was thankful not cancled even I was the only one for the class.
Very freindly chef, very clear explanations
What wonderful way to spend my last day in Bangkok. I booked this tour last minute and they were able to get me in the next day. The market tour was very insightful and helpful to all types of cooking. The class was unbelievably informative and exciting and our instructor, Air, was funny and so much fun! I love that you can choose your own dishes so you dont have to only make the food set for that day. They are so good at multitasking that all members of the group make their food perfect and on time, all finishing at the same time and learning how to make various dishes. I would recommend this company to anyone coming to Bangkok who is interested in taking a cooking class, hardly any previous cooking skills required!
really nice ans must go again
Spent a wonderful time learning and cooking. Chef Air was great, gave good tips to cooking. It was enjoyable and will definitely look forward to another session if I go to Bangkok again.
Learnt some interesting techniques, teacher (Air) and staff were great. Place very professional and clean. Would recommend to my friends
Had a so much fun half-day Thai cooking class learned how to cook 5 menu Especially the market tour was amazing
Good Organisation, friendly teacher, funny afternoon and yummy dishes
What we love about Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy: 1. The flexibility - you choose the dishes 2. The accessibility - the academy is not more than 200 meters away from the BTS; meeting place is just outside the BTS 3. The instructor - Air, our instructor is kind and was very hands-on 4. The classroom setting - Airconditioned All in all, we got our money's worth!
Went to this awesome cooking class with my daughter so this should be a "Must Do" on your next trip to BANGKOK-THAILAND. Liked that we could select from list the 5 items we would be cooking & eating. Small group of people, 1 Germany, 2 England, 2 Americans. Went to market to learn about fresh ingredients & spices which was really interesting. Wonderful people very helpful with improving all parts of cooking skills.
We chose this class because you can select the dishes of your choice that you will be cooking. The staff is super nice and helpful, and our group and class was fun and dynamic. I totally recommend this experience!
When booking tours through internet you never really know what you are going to get, but this tour really surpassed our expectations. Both the market tour and cooking class were extremely interesting to us, and the atmosphere, location, facilities and way of teaching were all very pleasant. We had a small group and had a very nice and personal cooking class by funny and nice Thai chef cook King and an assistant. Although no newcomers in cooking, we learned a lot, and of course the food was delicious. A real recommendation if you are looking to learn more about Thai food and culture.
Every staff there are very nice!
Three of us joined a class given by Air at the Thai cooking Academy. We were able to select what we wanted to cook ! The class was extremely organized and informative and we enjoyed every second. The dishes were made were amazing - can't believe we made them ourselves! BEST cooking class in Bangkok!
