Silom Thai Cooking School is where Thai cooking and culture come together. The sounds, sights, smells and tastes found in the typical Thai market are emblematic of everyday life in Thailand and shape the contours of Thai cuisine.
The evening course does not include a market tour, but to fully understand and appreciate Thai cuisine, Silom Thai Cooking School brings the market to you. We will show and teach you about the traditional fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices used to make authentic Thai food. Once you have understood the importance of Thai ingredients in our cuisine, it will be time for you to prepare your very own traditional Thai meal.
What to know: Book in advance because the classes fill up quickly.
What I liked: I took the class in the Silom Thai Cooking School house so the decor was lovely. The house was decorated with retro Thai objects. The school was very comfortable and it made cooking a leisurely activity.
Good for: Those looking for a soft introduction to Thai cooking.
Best way to get there: Chong Nonsi BTS (Skytrain) and then a short motorbike ride that will cost you 20 baht to get to Silom Soi 13 and meet your teacher at the school.
From Monday to Sunday

We had the cooking class with Jay and he is a delight. He’s a very thorough teacher at explaining every dishes and spices we use which is good if you are a beginner cook or unfamiliar with Asian dishes. The recipes we learned (tom yum, pad thai, som tam, sticky rice, red curry) are delicious but very easy to learn so don’t be daunted if you’ve never cooked before. We were surprised how easy it is to cook delicious Thai meals. Our class had a 12-year old coming with her parents and she more than hold her own due to simplicity of the explanation and cooking. Our teacher Jay had us smiling and laughing throughout the whole session. The recipe book at the end was a nice touch. We couldn’t ask for better cooking lesson. It’s simply worth every penny.
Had a wonderful time cooking at the silom cooking experience. Our tutor jay was brilliant at explaining and showing us how to cook, and also very funny which made the whole experience most enjoyable.
This was an amazing class! It was easy to understand and the staff was pleasant. Food was undeniably good! I would highly recommended this class to others.
It was very easy and basic Thai cooking style! Those who do not have any cooking experience and passionate for Thai food, this class was designed to make them happy! I am a certified Canadian Chef and I went there to learn some secret in Thai cooking but rather I became confused about their recipes compare to what I learned from my school and youtube. They can have two type of classes like for experienced people and non-experienced people. They can have also a group photo session and send a soft copy to each student. Thanks
Very convivial, very easy to cook, good to eat, correct price. don t know if without gaz i can cook !
Lots of fun, good food, and a very competent staff.
We loved the class! Jay, our instructor was really entertaining but more importantly, knew what he was talking about! I recommend this class to anyone who wants an introduction into Thai cooking! We also received a cool book with all the recipes from the class
I really enjoyed the night class in Bangkok. The teacher was fun and knowledgeable. She made me very comfortable. Everyone at the school made my experience wonderful. I could not sit on the floor, so the considerate staff and teacher made accommodations for my mild handicap. As a solo traveling female i was hesitant about going alone to a place where I am unfamiliar with language . The school is on a alley, but good signage made it easy to find. The teacher and manager walked with me at 9pm to the main street and helped me catch a cab. The small class made a delicious meal, made friends from around the world, and learned about Thailand culture and cuisine. I would do it again, whenever my travels takes me to Bangkok.
Jay was our instructor and he was absolutely awesome. He was cheerfully, funny and explained everything really well! We enjoyed how the ingredients were displayed and assembled. There was a theme to every dish. In short, I highly recommend this cooking class. I would love to come back and take more courses. Also, the booklet with recipes explaining and showing ingredients exceeded my expectations. Dry satisfied with the outcome:)
We took the 3 hours evening class. Funny and good teacher. Little hard to understand sometimes for us who dont share the same ingredientes in food but we defenetly learned about thai cooking and can take the new knowledge home. And everything tasted hevenly.
The teacher was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. There was a certain kind of theatricality to his teaching which was funny and extremely entertaining. The food was delicious!
Impressed with the helpful signs in the surrounding streets to help us locate the Silom Cooking School. Felt welcomed and appreciated the efficiency and organisation of the evening. Our instructor was Aey. She was excellent. Very thoughtful, considerate of our different backgrounds. Her English made it very easy for us to understand all her information. Added background information to the use of herbs and vegetables. The small group numbers enabled slick progress through all the courses cooked and served. The participation was just about right. Helping some times, preparing sometimes, and always cooking individually. We loved our menu and noticed, if you were a repeat attendee or had any allergies, different dishes were offered. All the ingredients were fresh and that reflected in the taste of the dishes. Was the best meal we had whilst in Bangkok.
Do it, you will not regret!
Think it is a good experience, the classs is easy for begininers!
Great experience for beginners as we get to learn about the local ingredient and some hands on cooking experience. Chef Aey is very funny and professional, we all have so much fun during the class! Definitely recommended to try!
We had a lovely time at this cooking school. The teacher (Joo) was really lovely and made the class very enjoyable. It was well run, good value and the food was great.
Great place, great teacher. Fresh ingredients. Very good!
Petit cours de cuisine thaï en soirée (version sans visite du marché) agréable. Le lieu est accueillant. Il y avait deux groupes de 6 personnes ce qui permet un contact facile avec la chef et les autres personnes. Les plats préparés étaient simples à réaliser avec tout de même une multitude de produits différents. La chef a pris son temps pour nous expliquer les procédures et nous présenter les produits. Nous avons passé un très bon moment, le temps passe vite. Nous sommes désormais mieux préparés à cuisiner thaïlandais. En bonus, nous repartons avec un livret de cuisine.
Great overview of Thai cooking with very approachable cooking and a highly skilled and entertaining teacher (Aye!). Would def recommend!
Thanks! Learnt a few tricks
The evening class skip the market tour which means less hassle. The dishes made are not difficult and tasty! Instructor is knowledgeable and humorous! Will recommend friends to join!
Nam was our instructor for our 6 pm class. We loved her, she made the whole experience even better. We will be back and highly recommend it.
Jay was an amazing teacher, super fun and knowledgeable! Instructions were clear, prep was easy, and the food came out great!
From the beginning to the end everything was just well prepared and perfect! The people were very friendly. We got so much information about Thai food and the experience of cooking was priceless. These three hours of cooking class were definitely one of the highlights of my whole Thailand holidays. Thank you so much!
it was our first cooking class and we loved it. the teacher was really clear with her explanations, the lessons were very hands on and the food we cooked tasted great. thank you!
Nam is a great teacher, patient and explained everything well. You will have an absolutely amazing time cooking traditional Thai food. Don't think twice. Book it! This was the last activity I did before leaving Bangkok and so glad I did too.
This cookery class is one of the highlights of my time here in Thailand. Chef oat is very warm, funny and a fantastic cook. He went through all the essential ingredients needed to cook Thai dishes and the tips and tricks of Thai cooking whilst also making it really fun. Make sure you are hungry before you go as you will be eating a lot of food! You also get a cookery booklet at the end with recipes for all of the main Thai dishes, I'll be using this all the time at home now :)
Wasn't planning on doing a cooking class while in Bangkok but a family I met from Scotland suggested it. Since I was traveling solo I decided to sign up. Registration was easy, price was right, and the experience was great. Met other travelers from different countries, learned about Thai spices, flavors, and traditional cooking practices while having a great time and sampling our culinary success! The instructors are great. Facility very clean and adorable. Five stars.
We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage daughters. This cooking class was perfect for us- not too long and as we didn't want to go to the market so three hours was great. We loved all the dishes we cooked and were our stomachs were absolutely full when we left. We had only eaten breakfast that morning which we would recommend. Very well organised. Highly recommended.
Great class! Humorous & very knowledgeable instructor
We had SO much fun at this class! My husband and I decided to take this class over others in Bangkok and we are so glad we did. Na was an incredible teacher, everything was seamlessly prepped for us but was still so hands on. The whole facility was super clean, the flow of the class was perfect (cook some, eat some, cook more, eat more - rather than waiting until the end). They had separate dining and cooking and teaching areas which was great too and allowed for great dinner conversations and setting. Even provided water and Pepsi! Loved this class!!
The food was definitely gourmet. We spent three times the money at an authentic restaurant by a local and this cooking school meal was ten times better. Everything was awesome and instructions were very easy to follow even a 5 year old can do this
Very good food, complete menu! Nice and kind people! Highly recommended!
The food turned out really well and the cooking/ingredient explanations were informative and entertaining. I would recommend.
A great way to have an idea what Thai cooking is all about.
We have enjoyed our time a lot. It was a happy surprise that our teacher knows how to speak Cantonese !! he even taught us how to buy the ingredients in HK :)
We had a great experience at the evening class. Our kids were a bit reluctant to try this but this was their favourite thing we did in Bangkok. Chef Lon was hilarious and knowledgable and all of us loved learning about the different ingredients and cooking up a delicious meal. Our kids aged 11 & 9 were engaged the entire time and participated at every stage. The class was really well organized and we had a great time. I would highly recommend this company.
Great staff Amazing facility Best meal of the trip thank you!
Instructor was great and very funny! Enjoyed the food.
Best experience we had in Bangkok
We had a small group from Switzerland, Taiwan and me from Canada. Chef Jay had us make several dishes, while explaining the ingredients. A wonderful way to spend a few hours on Silom.
We have 4 girls joined the class and we were late coz of traffic, but still we could catch up the time by cooking 2 dishes in one time haha! We are thailand master chef! Very nice teacher, nice place and nice food!
We really like cooking and we knew we weren't leaving Thailand without going to a cooking class so we could come back home and keep eating all the great food we tried over there. It was a great experience, really hands-on and we can't wait to try the recipes back home with the book we were given.
We have so much fun in the cooking class!! The teacher was so humorous :) Will recommend my friends to join
I learned a lot at the cooking class and really enjoyed the instructor who had a great sense of humor. I was able to book it the night before. Class was affordable, easy to locate, and fun. Highly recommended!
Excellent class! I enjoyed it so much. :)
This 3-hour course was superb! The 5-course menu was delicious and everything was already prepared in a way that we did not have to waste time on cutting vegetables but we could learn about the products used and finalize the meals the way we liked it most. Great!
This cooking class was awesome! I would definitely do it again on my next visit and highly recommend the class! The instructor was very informative and entertaining. They have you remove your shoes (which is a good thing) so I'd suggest bringing socks to wear.
I absolutely loved Silom's cooking school, and cookly's service! Cannot wait to be back in Thailand to try it out all over again!
The tutor is nice and cheerful. She explained every ingredient and steps in a clear manner. It made me feel easier to handle the cuisine and the food was as tasty as expected.
Great experience and the dishes are delicious.
I loved the class!! The chef was amazing and so funny!! I am so happy I did this in Thailand because it was the highlight of my trip! 😘😘😘
This my ever first time I tried out a cooking class. I was on holidays in Bangkok and thought it would be great to come back with some thai cooking skills. I loved the fact that the teacher showed all the raw ingredients necessary to make each and every dish. We made 5 dishes during the evening. As a vegetarian, I was very pleased that I could make my own dishes appart from the others! At the end of the class a recipie book was handed out with a few more additional recipies. The book also contains a list of all ingredients with pictures! Highly recommened!
