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.
