The chefs english was great, he was funny and friendly. Loved the wide range of dishes we got to make and try. Loved learning all the different ingredients they use in a dish and being able to grind up the curry ourselves. It was just awesome. We were super full after the class haha.
The class was wonderful, we enjoyed everything..from the diverse options in the menu that you can learn to the excellent atmosphere of the facilities. Everything was well prepared for each person, it is not that you learn by seeing; there you do cook by yourself! Highly recommended!!
Getting people to cook different stuff can be confusing.
Prestation de grande qualité , tout est parfaitement organisé . Les aliments sont frais et tout est très propre. Excellent professeure qui aime les gens et la cuisine. Nous avons fait la classe du soir, ne mangez surtout pas avant d’y aller car vous allez manger toute la soirée !
I so enjoyed taking the class with my girlfriends and loved eating all of the food during the 4 hours. It gave me confidence to make the recipes in my own home and I loved the cook book with the recipes! Thanks for your enthusiasm in your teaching us, for telling us about your Akha background and for expanding our appreciation for the Thai culture and food.
What an amazing class! It surpassed our expectations. The food was some of the best we’ve had in Thailand overall and we each had our own stove which was great. They gave us a recipe book at the end, and got to go home with ingredients to make curry and one of the soups again. I would highly recommend this class. You get to make over 11 dishes and the teacher is super friendly!
We loved this class. Food was nice(probably the best meal we had in Chiang Mai), and the atmosphere was great!
Everything was so organized...the schedule was so well planned out, we got to cook and eat and cook and eat which made it fun, the dishes and pots and utensils were all lined up and easily accessible, the dishes were washed...! You made it fun by all of your comments and tips and jokes. I especially liked learning about your background/history and eating Akha traditional food. I would highly recommend the class to anyone! Well worth the money! A wonderful experience for me on my trip to Thailand. Can't wait to try the recipes when I get home! Thanks for a great time!
This was my second cooking class in Thailand and it far exceeded my expectations. Niti was amazing and I learned a lot about cooking fresh and natural from her lesson. This was seriously the best class I could have signed up for. Even if you’ve taken a cooking class before this will be different and you will learn a lot from Niti!
From start to finish, our experience with the Akha Cooking Class was fantastic! We booked on the day of, but thanks to fast responses we were able to book transportation with the host. Our host was very knowledgeable about the food we would be cooking and the tools we'd use to get there. She spoke good English so we had no problem understanding the information or instructions. It was also a great opportunity to socialize with the other attendees as we had several breaks to eat our various courses. Most importantly, we left full and happy!
From the moment we were picked up from our hotel to the time we were dropped off I thought this was a stellar experience.We made spring rolls, soup, basil chicken , sticky rice with mango and a lovely dipping sauce. Some of us made pad Thai and a mango salad. We each had our own cooking stations , with cutting boards , knives, pots and stove top. The place was very clean and all of the ingredients fresh. Great job! Cathy
Our little group thoroughly enjoyed our session at the cooking class . Do was a great teacher and showed us how to make spring rolls, soup, various main courses and two desserts. The outdoor kitchen is very clean and bright and each of us had our own station to chop, and cook at. I would recommend this activity to anyone.
Liliana made a perfect job: menu, coordination, instruction, entertainment, background information, her English and her room were excellent. I will recommend this cooking class to everyone in Chiang Mai.
IWe stayed in Thailand for 9 nights with three in Chiang Mai, three in Kanchamaburi, and three in Ko Lanta for our honeymoon and my wife and I decided that this cooking class was one of the top three highlights of the trip. So many delicious dishes, such a helpful and hard-working instructor (Jay!) and great conversation with other class members from around the world. Everything was carefully prepared and ended right on time. Worth every penny. My only advice would be to eat a very light lunch as 11 courses can make even the heartiest of eaters full. Also, be sure to try the coffee!
CheRy was so entertaining and informative. I’m so glad I chose this cooking experience over others that were available and have been recommending it to everyone!!!
A wonderful experience!
It was extremly well organized,with a variety of dishes to suit everyone's taste. A very enjoyable night had by all. Transfers to and from and gifts from JJ were a bonus. Highly recommend this course
Great food, learned some techniques and typical ingredients as well as some Akan culture bits.
Definitely a great cooking course in a lovely and familiar atmosphere with an incredible teacher. One of the best experience ever!!! I learn a lot of Thai cuisine but also about Thai culture, new ingredients, and how to cook with love!!!
We had a lovely time at the Thai Akha Cooking Class. The class was simple and good to follow. How to prepare the food was perfectly explained and there was enough choice in the meals you could prepare. The explanation about the history of the food was most welcome and the staff was really nice. We would definitely recommend this class.
We have done sooo much as a family here in Chiang Mai - zip lines - white water rafting - treks And this cooking class is number one we really loved it we learnt so much plus our 18 year old won't go hungry when he goes off to uni - fantastic highly recommended Thank you
We really enjoyed this. The teacher was very personable and funny. I learned so much and got to try everything we made. We were so full by the end of the night and in love with our creations. Cook book and spice packet was an added bonus. I highly recommend this.
We chose this class, because the menu was very special and different from other classes. We cooked a lot of dishes, all of them were delicious! We would do this class again if we come back to Chiang Mai! Thank you for the great experience!
The Akha Tribe Cooking Class is must do for everyone who loves good food. The host, Niti, is super friendly and welcoming. She explains how to cook every dish detailed and also helps you safe the food if it gets too spicy or salty. I enjoyed the evening there alot and recommend the class to everyone!
The class was simply amaizing! The food was amaizing too! Super nice staff!
