We had a great times. I learnt that cooking Thai food is really not as difficult as I though. Our instructor made it fun and made sure the whole group was included. The only negative was that the premises didn't have running water during our class, which is not ideal when you are cooking
The chef makes you feel comfortable no matter what your experience in the kitchen. Market trip was great!
The chef was energetic, friendly and great with all the personalities in the room! My boyfriend and I loved how we got to pick the dishes we wanted to cook and the recipe book to take home with us was an added bonus. Great valentine's day evening!!
The class was above expectations! Really fun and great. Competent and very good staff. Have to try!
Pum is a wealth of culinary as well as cultural knowledge.
Thank you so much for great time! We had a very valuable Thai food cooking lesson. Strongly recommend it for others!
I really like the cooking process and the place met 100% of my expectations. The teachers speak very good English. Very professional school! You can also buy ingredients for cooking. I recommend it!
This was such a great addition to our Phuket itinerary and made the trip very special. We enjoyed the express class, which allowed us to learn three recipes while leaving the rest of our day to tour the island and snorkel. Nong was such a patient and fun instructor and taught us so much about Thai culture. We’d do this again and we highly recommend!
My husband, daughter and I took the 3 hour course. We could choose any three dishes. The instructor was excellent, patient and humorous. We were given lots of information that helped us understand Thai cooking before we actually cooked. The cooking was lots of fun and the eating was even better. The recipes are amazing!
No words are enough to describe this experience. It was my first time and it did not disappoint. I was alone but were joined by other participants who were also tourists. We got to learn together and enjoy our individually cooked Thai dishes. We were introduced to Thai herbs and made curry paste from scratch while feeling Thai culture through their cooking styles and techniques. I may not be a professional cook but my dish turned out the best Thai food I have tasted. Thank you!
My third time in this class already. I brought some family members with me because they were so curious about my experience in this class. I missed the local market tour last year so this time we were able to visit the local market and handpicked the fresh ingredients. Just like before, we had a great time, we were laughing, enjoying our lessons and getting our hands busy. As usual the kitchen was organized, staff were friendly and they were really ecstatic to see me again. My family and I learned a new set of authentic Thai dishes that we were able to take home and share with our friends and other relatives.
Great experience, great team, really enjoyed!
I absolutely loved this cooking class. I'm not much of a cook at home and what I was looking for out of this class was to try something new and to learn more about Thai cuisine, which was exactly what I got out of it. The teacher, R2D2, was hilarious and made us laugh, while taking the time to explain the different ingredients - from herbs to sauces - in great detail. We were able to taste test the sauces and herbs while he explained them. We chose 3 dishes to make, from a cookbook that we got to bring home with us. Our group had only 4 people, so we also got to learn how to make green curry paste that one of the other students' had to make for one of their dishes. We learned a fun song to sing while mixing curry paste and had a lot of laughs. After cooking the first meal, we got to sit and socialize while we ate our creation. Then, we made the next two and sat down to eat both. I was nervous that I would screw up my dishes, but this 3-hour class was perfect, because the prep and measurement of all the ingredients was already done for us, so we just had to throw it all together. Also, the teacher was very good at telling us our next steps, timing, temp., etc., so it would have been hard to mess it up. This class was fun and easy and it's really cool to learn how to create a few authentic, Thai dishes. I would highly recommend this class for anyone looking to experience something unique while in Thailand.
Our cooking class was fantastic. Super informative, hands on, and filling! We learned all about the Thai spices, got to cook our own food and had plenty of it! Our instructor R2, was FUN and knowledgeable! I would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone!
I've come home and cooked up the dishes I was taught and my family were VERY impressed. Teacher was very knowledgeable and fun, facilities were clean and organised.
One of the best experiences in Thailand. The cooking recipe is so simple that anyone can learn.. The impressive ones : 1. Knowledge of basic ingredients for Thai food 2. How to make basic sauces After this class I’ve known how the tastes come from.
Don’t go anywhere else this class teaches you authentic Thai. Pun explains all spices and herbs in detail so when you go home it will be very easy to cook up a feast. It went for 3 hours. I wanted to stay all day. It was THAT good. Thanks pum
We got the express class and loved every moment of it. Our teacher was very informative and made each step clear and easy to do. There was also a mix up in class times so they accommodated us through the day so was more like a one on one.
Had a great time and now I have some easy recipes to take home as well! Thank you!
As there were only myself and my friend during the class time slot, we had full attention from the instructor. We enjoyed the class with no crowd.
He had so much energy and was so enthusiastic throughout. I was worried about booking and express class but he was so thorough with explaining the elements of Thai cooking I really learnt a lot. The cooking part was quick (due to the super quick hobs used). The end product was amazing!! Thank you.
Wir waren eine überschaubare Gruppe von 5-Leuten. Zuerst bekamen wir eine kurze Einführung in die kulturellen Gepflogenheiten Thailands. Dann hat uns unser Chef die Hauptgewürzrichtungen erklärt und wir durften die Basics probieren. Danach hat jeder drei Gerichte zubereitet und gemeinsam eine Curry paste :-) anschließend wurde gemeinsam probiert. Sehr entspannt, informativ und lecker. Dank des Kochbuchs, das es kostenlos gab, kann man definitiv einige Dinge zu Hause nachkochen :-)
the staff was so nice and i learned a lot from the class. the food was amazing and the recipes were simple enough for anyone to understand. i especially loved that they only use high quality ingredients. though i hope they told me before hand not to eat too much breakfast ;)
We enjoyed learning about Thai food and we will cook here back home in the UK. ‘’Kob Khun Kha’’ for all the team at Pum’s Cooking School. V & Gary
Great teacher. Great food. Amazing experience. Would recommend to everyone.
Mike our cook instructor was helful, great attitude and patient. Definately coming back!
Absolutely loved our cooking class! The food was incredible and there was plenty of it! But what really made the class was R2 (the man who ran our lesson). He was fun, passionate and energetic and he made the class an absolute delight for us! My friend and I both wanted to come back right away and do it all again.
So much fun, bought cookbooks for friends. Learned a lot about the culture!
Cooking Class was Just awesome experience and fun! For now we know How to make the original curry. Totally worth it.
Our chef and teacher TK was just fantastic. Loved the opportunity to learn about Thai flavours and the way to balance them . The kitchen and restaurant are brilliant. Loved being able to share our cooked dishes with the other students on the course. Brilliantly run...a must do if visiting Thailand and love your food
We had such a great time at Pum's! Our instructor was very informative and taught us alot. Loved the quick meals - will definitely cook them when I get home. I would recommend this school to anyone visiting phuket!
So much fun! Quick and informative
So much fun, informative, and an awesome experience!
Enjoyed the class very much. Fun and easy! Learned a lot about Thaifood
One of the highlights of our trip. Learnt so much about Thai food and culture and the food we made was incredible!! Benny was hilarious and made the class super fun! Thank you!!!
We cooked a very good and tasty meal in a very clean location.
We had a fun experience learning the different types of ingredients used in Thai cooking. The class was really fun as the instructor was really fun, enthusiastic and cheerful!
The cooking lesson was fun with our chef Benny and very educational about the ingredients used in Thai cooking. We had a great time learning and then enjoyed an excellent Thai lunch!
Pum's cooking School was a tremendous experience, we had lunch here the day beforehand and chose the dishes we were to cook. On the day we were guided through every step with fun, enthusiasm and humour. All dishes were delightful, so much so we went back for another meal before leaving Phuket. Highly recommended 👌👌👌
We spent a wonderful afternoon at Pum's and following the guidance of our teacher Binny, we managed to cook some very flavoursome dishes. All in all a great experience and would recommend to anyone interested in getting the full flavours out of your Thai cooking.
The trainer was friendly funny and knowledagble. We also had the honor of meeting the owner, such a passionate woman! The class was a mothersday gift from my girls back in SA and they could not have chosen better. I will take home great memories and plam to cook Thai often. The recipes are easy and very tasty. Recommended to all who would like a different experience while in Thailand. And with cooking schools in Phuket, Phi Phi and Chwang Mai it is easy to book a class. Maresa - South Africa
I have always adored Thai cuisine, so I wanted to learn a bit and practice it when I return. Pum thai cooking was a good choice, Tam in Phi Phi location was very helpful she introduced the herbs and sauces noting detailed information about them and advising what we can substitute them with. This was particularly handy because most of the Thai ingredients cant be found in my home country. The place was a cool modern decorated place and fans were working. This was my primary concern since cooking will require heat and the weather is also very hot outside. But it was okay. Cooking process was very easy and quick as the ingredients were prepared before hand. The small recipe book they provided was also very useful and cute. I do recommend!
