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.
To fully understand and appreciate Thai cuisine, Silom Thai Cooking School takes you on a guided market tour for you to observe how Thai people handle and buy various raw ingredients before preparing them in the kitchen. You will then be brought back to the school to practice traditional Thai cooking methods in a hands-on cooking class.
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: Chongnonsri BTS and then a short motorbike ride that will cost you 20 baht to get to Silom Soi 11 (where you meet your chef for the market tour).

Me and my friend had a great time at the cooking class. The instructor was super nice, funny and explained well. Our group was six girls and we had a lot of fun. The hole team worked hard and well together, so that we had a very pleasant and easy stay. We will come back. Thank you! :)
Great ambiance and great food!
Very exciting class as I got to learn how to cook thai food. I love thai food and surely would practice them when I got back home. Managed to attend 2 sessions (morning and evening)& both instructors were friendly and lively. Would recommend this experience to whoever who visit Bangkok..
The cooking class absolutely fantastic. Our teacher was funny and interacted with everyone. It is very hands-on and you get to eat 5 different dishes - don't eat before-hand! Probably our favourite meals in Bangkok so far!
Enjoyed self made thai-food. Well introduced, well organized!
The cooking class was really nice and interesting. The instructor was super nice, she told us a lot of information and was sometimes really funny. Besides, she offered to take pictures all the time. The organization is very well structured, besides the instructor there are more employees helping with preparing everything. This ensures the program went very smoothly. All the dishes were super nice and tasteful. I can definitely recommend this to everyone!
I loved every minute of the class
I really enjoyed the cooking class- it was really informative and fun, and the teacher was great as well! The food was so so yummy, and I was able to make it how I preferred my food (not very spicy :O ). I really loved the class and would recommend to anyone!
The market tour was great, despite that all of the food was picked out ahead of time. All of the preparation and playing was creative and well thought out. Would have loved to participate a bit more in the actual prep work, but the trade off being that we got to make 5 dishes instead of two was worth it. Overall, a great experience and would recommend. Also bonus points in that the facility was clean, sanitary and AC cooled.
I've been living in Bangkok for a couple of months now and this cooking class was my personal highlight of living here. It was so well organized, relaxing, and informative! Joo did a great job filling the room with laughter and teaching us everything we wanted to know about our favorite Thai dishes. A must do in Bangkok!
My friends and I enjoyed it a lot!
Learned the local food in Thailand. It was so tasty, also the market tour is fun
First to experience the local market by Tuk-tuk. Then we were told about different fresh herb ingredients. Then we went to the kitchen base. The cooking part was really fun and informative, everyone prepared and cooked four differnet dishes and one mango sticky rice. The Taste of the Food was absolutely wonderful. Thanks for arrangement of this class !!
Great web UI/UX, it is really easy to use.
Perfect class for anyone who wants to develop himself in Thai cuisine; walk to the local market where you learn how to recognize the freshness of products, then preparing and cooking with great people, very developing experience. I would really recommend it to anyone staying in Bangkok :)
My cooking instructor was great. He was very funny. He could make everyone in the room laugh and explained how to make the food well. Highly recommend this class!
It was a pleasant memory for my husband and son to travel together. It's a precious experience to enjoy cooking.
We really liked our cooking class and the market tour. It was great to learn, cook and eat our own Thai dishes. The dishes were really good and better than in a lot of restaurants around town. Oat was our guide/teacher and we was really clear and explain everything. We did our lesson with our baby and he was really nice with her and helped us with her or with our dishes. Great experience and we totally recommend it!!
Had a great time
it was so nice
the teacher is good. Cook in a happy atmosphere.
Kind, nice, fun, clean.
We had a great time learning about Thai spices, the “passwords” or must have spices for each of the dishes we made. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and made the class very fun! I will tell my friends to take your class when they travel to Bangkok!
I really enjoyed the class! The class was well prepared and I learned a lot about Thai food. I liked the stylish cooking goods as well as the tasty food.
Nice experience at Bangkok, happy to cook with friends, teacher are so funny and easy to understand how to cook the thai food! I will suggest to my friends to join the class next trip in Bangkok.
There were 9 of us in this class from all over the world. We started off with a local market tour. The instructor introduced to us the different kind of ingredients for making the different dishes. Didn't know there are so many different type of herbs, spices, egg plants, chillies etc. We get to experience travelling on a tuk tuk to the cooking school which is actually a beautiful decorated house. Within the house there are many pots of herbs and plants. The instructor taught us how to cut the ingredients and what are the must have ingredients to the different type of dishes. She taught us how to decorate all plates and dishes to look nice and expensive..like the 5 star hotel standard. The dishes that we cooked tasted delicious. At the end of the class, we were all given a pair of chopsticks as souvenir and also a recipe book. We had lots of fun and truly enjoyed the class! I would not hesitate to recommend my friends to join.
Amazing class with good teacher, good atmosphere and wonderfull food! I can recommend this class to everyone!!
we had so much fun in the cooking class at silom cooking school. the teacher Joo was very nice and interesting. she explained everything well in details. this was a good experience for us to have a team building activities during the trip.
I enjoyed it so much! The Dishes are easy to make as all of the ingredients are well prepared. The teacher is very nice and willing to share knowledges. What's most important is that the food is soo delicious!
Our teacher Kit was very knowledgable with all the ingredients and gives very clear, easy to understand instructions! We felt the market tour was a little redudant as the explanation could be done in the cooking class instead. Other than that, we had so much fun chopping up the ingredients and cooking (and eating!) our own food. Environment was very cosy for a class of 10. 2 thumbs up! Highly Recommend!!
This is the first cooking class for me and my mum in Bangkok. We did hv fun. The tutor is well prepared with sence of humour.I will join this class with different menu if I go to Bangkok again.
Our host, Kate, was friendly and professional with a great sense of humour. She was a knowledgable tutor who made the whole experience so much fun.
Such a great experience with friendly and knowledgable teachers. Would recommend to anyone looking for an authentic experience.
I was really good ! The foods was amazing and the teacher very funny.
Our class was nothing short of amazing and our host was comical, charming, and knowledgeable. This class has inspired me to take more classes. I’m a foodie! Thanks!
Will recommend for anyone who's interested in experiencing Thai food in a quick run.
Entertaining Master Chef, makes all seem like they're easy peasy. Eating the food one by one right after you make them was such a delight - you don't have to wait until you make all the 5 dishes. No waste of time so even good for short-tempered people! Very enjoyable!
The teacher was charming and very helpful. The space was delightful and the prep very organized and the class was fabulous because we actually learned how to make our favorite dishes and enjoy them! It was by far our best meal in Thailand!
Great food, great experience. I will recommend it to anyone! 5*+
Instructor Chin was fun to work with, the class is well organized. I will def recommend to all my friends. Just thought it would be nice if we can buy some ingredient from the class.
Really had fun and learnt several skills to bring back Singapore! Def gonna try cooking nx round my own and Mr C is very entertaining. Love his teaching method!
Great instructors! Oat made the class fun and gave me the confidence to make these dishes at home! 5 ⭐️
Both myself and my wife attended. We came back home where we already grow a few ingredients. Called by Springvale in Melbourne and got everything we needed and cheap too. They have a very large Vietnamese community there. Jay was a wonderful and very funny teacher. We loved the market experience that helped us see what we needed at the market in Melbourne. We have cooked all our dishes and will do more. We cooked for friends who also love Thai food last night. Thank you very much for a wonderful cooking class and approach.
Uns hat der Kochkurs sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Es war interessant auf dem Markt einkaufen zu gehen und alle Zutaten erklärt zu bekommen. Wir hatten einen sehr netten Kochlehrer, mit dem es richtig lustig war. Es wurde immer alles super erklärt und das Essen war richtig lecker. Ich freue mich schon, die Gerichte zu Hause auszuprobieren.
We are from Canada and bought the afternoon class. Our instructor was Oat and he is awesome!! He made the class fun and entertaining. We enjoyed the class even though we were late and missed the market tour. Thanks Oat for the memories!
This is a must do. We loved the entire experience.
Oat our teacher was great, he knows how to manage a large group of different nationalities, ages and attention spans! The school clearly has a well worked format which allows for everyone to follow the menus and actually make tasty food. My only grumble would be that we didn't do all of the prep, and the class finished well before 1 so we had the time. Still very good value for money though.
I enjoyed that the instructor taught us about the ingredients used in Thailand - and how they compared to their American/Western relatives. The instructor seemed very knowledgeable and, impressively, could name ingredients in five or so different languages.
I learnt a few Thai famous dishes. Clear instructions!
The cooking class was one of the best experiences I had in Thailand! The instructor, Joo, was very entertaining and informative. All of the dishes we made were delicious! I would love to do it again!
the class was great, teacher chin was funny and very supportive, meals were amazing (because i cooked them). the only thing ill change is to do it in the morning. my class was in the afternoon and it was "sauna hot" in the kitchen.
The kitchen vas very cute, and our teacher Chin was lovely. I took the class with a visit at the market, but that part was more like a presentation of the thaï ingrédients than shopping. It was fun anyway. All the meals were delicious and the recipes book is a better souvenir than a Chang T-shirt...!
I took a class alone But Teacher was really kind and The teacher name is Chin. She can speak english very well but a little quick.. I can take part in class only weekend but Menu is so simillar I think menu change periodically
Great class, would recommend to others and would take another class with this company
Learned a lot about a few famous Thai dishes, funny and excellent instructor Chin.
It was a really good experience! I really enjoyed it an was after the course i went to the supermarket to buy some cookingstaff for back home. The Teacher was nice and funny. Thanke you!
our Host instructor is fantastic, she made everyone feel welcome and have fun.
Had a really great time at the cooking class, which although got off to a bumpy start (wrong location on maps.me, which meant we missed the market tour. Then at the office we were then told that we had to go to a different location than the one we were told and booked for... taken by tuktuk there which they paid for) it was a really great and fun class! All the dishes were extremely tasty, our host was funny and very informative. I feel able to cook these dishes back at home, with help of the free cook book they provided! We had lots of fun, given water and so much food to eat! Would defiantly do again!
Insightful, delicious, and tons of fun. Would recommend to anyone visiting Bangkok. Our teacher, Jay, was a delight!
It was a fun & great experience! The dishes taste so good especially the Pad Thai. Thank you teacher Joo for your teaching 😊
We had really good time during the class !!! It’s really funny and the food is really delicious. I don’t even know I can cook haha.... Especially teacher Jay,he is really funny and know how to deal with different group of people! Awesome !! Thank you for giving us this good memory .
재미있고 좋은경험이었습니다. 단,장소가 약간 열악하다고나할까요?! 너무 더웠습니다 그래도 맛은있었습니다.
It’s quite good experience to go to traditional market with teacher and learned Thai vegetables, spices etc Very nice experience and I also immediately recommend to my friends in Bangkok traveling.
One of the funest, intresting, amuzing cooking classes I’ve been too ;)
Very good teacher, she was very patient and funny. Both thumbs up!
Food is very delicious. The teacher is cute and humorous.
Very nice teacher , humor , professional , was very easy to do with him . Food was very delicious !!
Learnt the basic of Thai cuisine, and prepared (and ate) a delicious Pad Thai, with other 4 well explained dishes.
Did my class with Joo, she was great! Everything was organized, simple and yummy. Excited to make Pad Thai at home! But - they actually don’t do shopping in the market, it was a little pointless going because they didn’t buy anything. Market was small - but I guess it was nice if you have never seen one.
The class was perfectly organized and the breaks to eat the different plates we prepared were very well adjusted. Our chef Oat has a nice sense of humor a guides us through the recipes with a smile in our face. If you like Thai food and you want to learn in a nice and beautiful stage this is the place to come.
The tutor is very funny and interesting. But still have something can be improve because from the meeting point to the local market we need to take a Tuk Tuk to there but it can carry 3 person but end up 4 of student share one. For the western visitor may be too difficult to fit in. Our class is 11 people class and i think 8 people in class is more reasonable. I will give 5 star if they can improve this.
The class was better then anticipated. I learned so much on Thai cooking in such a short time. The meals I prepared were amazing, tasted better then a meal in a restaurant. Chin, the instructor, guided us through in a professional manner and is highly recommended. I am confidant that when I return home, I will be in high demand for cooking authentic Thai food.
I am so happy that i attneded this class Silom Thai Cooling school is great for eberybody who wanta to know more about spicies and way of preparing traditional thai food. Jay is a great teacher and full of positive energie. Thank you
This was AWESOME. I can't say it enough. Wish I could give 6 stars. Honestly the place was so cute and we cooked and ate so much food. Lovely time would do this 45 times over.
I'll take a second course.
The teacher, a 23 old Thai girl, was really friendly and excited about the teaching. Also, her English was very good. Even though the market shopping was a bit disappointing because we didn't buy the ingredients on our own, it was still interesting because we got some explanations of typical Thai ingredients. The class itself took place in a very homy and cute little house and the group is not bigger than 8-10 people. Everything is explained very well. In the end we got a cooking book to remember what we've learned. We would definetely recommend it :-)
Great expérience ! The teacher is interesting, entertaining and funny. We have learned How to cook 5 different typical thaï dishes and we ate them right after cooking.
I really enjoyed taking a cooking class at Silom Thai Cooking Class. The instructor was incredibly friendly and humors, and the class was very organized and well-prepared. I'd strongly like to take a class again when I get to Thai next tiem! :)
Spent an afternoon at Silom Thai Cooking Class to learn making spring rolls and tom yam, it’s fun and delightful. Worth my while.
The instructor was great. He was enthusiastic which made everyone 10x more enthusiastic. The food was great. All in all, definitely a recommendation.
One of my best experience in Thailand Learning cooking thai food is literally enjoying LIFE Herbs ... Smell... just amasing combo😊😊😊 SiloM Thai cooking school has good approach for us. The Master Jay showed us all tips and secrets of making amasing green curry and pad thai. The booking was so easy vie Cookly and everything was updated in the system quckly so they had info about me before I even got there. Silom Thai cooking school is at great location. And in the end of the class you always get some surprise - special dish for your heart👌👌👌🥗🥗🥗
I can describe it as one of the best experiences of my life, I almost cry when I try the first dish, highly recommended, everything was awesome, the house, the teacher Marcela & Erick from México
The cooking class was outstanding. The market shopping experience lacked the shopping.
The school environment is really good and well-decorated. I love how they separate the classroom from the kitchen. You learn how to prep the ingredients in the classroom first before moving to the kitchen to cook. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. We had a great time there!
Everything is well organized and it's a nice experience in local market! Teacher is nice, cooking class environment is great and tidy. And the food we cook are super yummy!!
My boyfriend and me are big fans of cooking and fell in love with thai food as soon as we started our vacation and tasted Pai thai, Tom Yum Goong. My favorite dessert should be mango sticky rice. And luckily, we got in touch with all my favorite dishes. The teacher was so talented and humorous, we both enjoyed this class to the most. Definitely will recommend.
Great class, learn so much about the thai ingridients during our shopping in the market and great experirience learning how to cook then. Amazing!
Very good teacher. Nice kitchen. In fact, everything was perfect.
Very well organized in such a way that we were able to prepare 5 dishes. Lots of interesting explanations and tips. At the end we got a recipe book. The food was delicious and last but not least the place is charming and the teacher awesome and funny. Highly recommend it
Best cooking course we have done so far in bangkok
Our instructor was pleasant and multi-lingual, and the class itself was streamlined and practical, quite hands-on where it mattered. Great value and learning experience. And that's coming from someone who cooks for a living.
Very nice lessons, the teacher was very good, smiling, nice and everything. I learned a lot and I strongly recommend that Thai cooking school.
I have experienced numerous cooking classes, and the experience offered by Silom Cooking Class is up there on the scale of fun and flavour. Really enjoyed the ambiance of the venue. The instructor Oat had a great sense of humour and was very knowledgeable and articulate about Thai food, creating a great vibe for everyone participating. The fresh produce and the flavours we created, I really enjoyed. Excellent.
I've learned lots of Thai ingredients and spicy and the method of using. the steps were very clear
It was the perfect balance of learning about Thai cooking and culture and eating some amazing Thai cuisine! We were impressed by the organization, set-up, atmosphere, and prices of Silom Thai Cooking Class! The teacher, Chin, was very knowledgeable about Thai ingredients and cooking methods, explained things clearly, had excellent English, and a delightful sense of humor. She even used Korean with more than half of the class who were native Korean speakers. I do not eat meat, and they were very accommodating about that and another student's shellfish allergy. The other students in the group seemed to really enjoy the experience as well.
The course was organized, orderly. The teacher was wonderful, speaking clear English. The atmosphere was fun
Our instructor was amazing and knowledgeable!!! We learned a lot about Thai cuisine and culture during the 3 hours class. I definitely consider to book again!
would skip market visit and review ingredients at class picked up some good points overall enjoyable experience owner well versed in Thai cooking
It was very organized and funny
Kai was a great chef/teacher and the arrangements were faultless.
Such a good class run by Jay, we had the best time and learnt a lot about Thai cooking! Definitely recommend.
Really enjoyed my morning at Silom cookery school. Excellent
Teacher is nice and funny. The dishes are yummy!! Can cook in a relaxed environments.
My teacher was chin who has sense of humor and right us well. My family had a really good time. Highly recommended.
Very interesting and the chef was very funny and friendly !
Really enjoyed my morning with Joo. She made everything so clearly and easily. The dishes were all delicious. I would definitely recommend this class if anyone has some spare time on their trip.
Did the same course 6 years ago and found it just as good. Thanks.
The instructor, Jay , was so funny and great! He knows all the ingredients' names in other languages too so that was very helpful. I didn't know this but I found out after the session that the cooking classes there are actually using Halal ingredients since the owner and some staff are Muslims. I would love to recommend this class to my Muslim friends def! :)
One of the best things you can experience in Bangkok! The class was so fun and the teacher was funny(If it is hard for someone to understand English, taking class could be difficult). Also, My understanding of thai food got improved!
Our tutor Chin was fantastic. She was fun and made the whole experience the highlight of my holiday in Thailand. It was so nice to learn about all the amazing spices and flavours and create so many lovely dishes...... the food was fantastic. I will definitely recommend this experience to all my friends who travel to Bangkok.
An ideal way to visit the local markets with great info on the foods, local vegetables and the well explained distinction between each food. Everyone was involved and the chef was so upbeat and happy to answer any questions. For anyone with a spare afternoon in Bangkok I could recommend this more! Enjoy!
The class left the lesson feeling happy. We all ate and seemed to enjoy the dishes we cooked. Chin made learning to cook Thai seem so easy and she has a good sense of humour. Visiting the market gave me new knowldge of Thai ingredients. With such a diverse selection of nationalities in the class on this occasion, Chin held us all together with great skill. It’s easy to learn with Chin. Great lesson, good price which includes all ingredients. Loved it all.
My daughter and I enjoy the cooking class. It was a good experience. The instructor (Chin) is very fun and we had good interactive Food was delicious. We have our own cooking after the first dish when it was still hot and nice then continue with the next dish.
Very competent chef, seamlessly organized, well equipped facilities. Plus: the recepies are handed out in a stylish booklet. If you are in Bangkok and are interested in Thai food - go with this cooking class in Silom! This was our top experience of Bangkok.
Good experience. Gave me brief understanding of Thai cooking.
The class was absolutely amazing. It exceeded our expectations by miles. Jay, our teacher, was funny, down to earth and went over everything in detail. He answered all our questions, was amazing with letting us know handy tips and tricks whilst cooking Thai food. We highly recommend this class. The food you make is exquisite, full of flavour and taste and his way of cooking makes it’s so easy for you to replicate when you fly back home. Can’t say enough good things about Jay and the class. Absolutely fantastic!!
The teacher is humorous and this make the class enjoyable.
It is a good basic introduction to thai food for people just interested in in having a good time.
I would strongly recommend Silom cooking school. It was very informative and interactive. It created some wonderful memories for my wife and I...all I can say is 'wow'!!!!
Would recommend this experience to everyone!
Very good organised. Good, enthusiastic teacher.
The cooking class was scheduled nicely and the ingredients are well prepared. It’s definitely a family friendly cooking class and everybody should join at least once! Price is fair and the content of class is valuable. The dishes were very delicious and teacher was so patient. The house was also beautifully decorated which I felt very comfortable staying in for the few hours.
Fantastic introduction to thai cusine! Our chef 'A' was as hilarious & enthusiastic as he was informative & knowledgeable. There was so much fitted into a short time thanks to the class being very organized. Delicious food & great value - highly recommended! 😊
We had an amazing time!! Started with local market tour, with a lady called Ayh (don’t know the spell) was fun and informative. She has a great character and made it very enjoyable. The class was ran by Goong, she brought everyone together. We were in 3 different pairs however it felt like a 1 group in the end as we got to know each other very well. Can’t think of any negatives at all, it was extremely fun but we also learned a lot about Thai flavors. Highly recommend this for any body no matter what level your cooking skills are :).
Great class. Great facility, great teacher.
Everything was very well organized and on time. The staff was very friendly and the teacher very nice, with a good English and explained everything that was interesting. Our chef was Khun Aey. My family and I had a very good experience and I will definitely further recommend this cooking school to my friends!!! Thank you for this amazing experience.
The class was wonderful, it was possibly my favorite day out in Bangkok and Chef Aey was great. Everything was well planned, well prepared and easy to follow. Everything we made tasted great and I hope to try out the recipes at home. Professionally run and lots of fun. I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning how to cook Thai food.
Smooth run down, teacher was funny
Great time! I am recomending this class for everybody! Atmosphere and the cook were amazing and it is so worthy to do that! Perfect day😊
Everything was perfect from the market tour to the food. Our teacher Nam was really nice !! We really enjoyed this cooking class !! We definetely recommend it !!
I booked the class for our family of 4 teens, 3 adults. Everyone enjoyed shopping at the market for ingredients and the instructor was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Some said it has been the highlight of our trip! Would definitely recommend. Food was great too!
Learned a lot about Thai cuisine, Jay was hilarious, food was bomb!
Our instructor, Oat, was wonderful and made it very enjoyable.
Tour in the market is not informative enough, too fast and very product is already prepared for the group . The same impression for the way things are being cooked in the school , you’re rushed through the process and time is very important. Al in all the knowledge you get is very basic , if that is what you want than it is very good. If more than the basic is sought, than this is not the place.
This was the most fun cooking class I've been to. Nam was an amazing teacher, I learned so much and had a wonderful time. Thanks Nam and all who helped!
Great teacher, well organized, really enjoyed the meals prepared
I like the class
Wow, what a fabulous afternoon with Aey and the team at Silom Thai Cooking! It was my birthday and was really looking forward to the session as I love cooking and wanted to learn more about how to prepare authentic Thai cuisine. With over 1000 5 star reviews why would I bother leaving another? Well beyond the obvious there were a few things I noticed that I would like to point out. 1) Cleanliness. All the utensils, equipment pans etc were super clean 2) Like clockwork. Extremely well planned. No faffing about everyone knew exactly what they were supposed to be doing and when, with all the correct utensils, equipment, ingredients etc laid out at exactly the right time / stage. Between each section of the afternoon, two little cleaning up fairies appeared and tidied away / cleaned up after us and set up for the next section. 3) Super fresh. The ingredients were an absolute delight to work with, beautifully fresh and the presentation was outstanding. 4) A great feel (and this bit is *important*) The place is a happy one. Booking a trip / tour or experience abroad can sometimes feel like you are supporting a big organisation to take advantage of the little guy. This place is happy. Aey (our teacher) is talented and a great chef but also hilarious and she made it her business to connect with every member of our group. There was a great atmosphere between her and her two assistants, it felt like a happy team. We could hear raucous laughter from other parts of the building where others were having their sessions too and we had a giggle at their fun too. Thank you Aey and team for a great afternoon, I couldn't have had a better time on my birthday!
Fantastic food, great instructor, market tour was of a small market but interesting none the less. Some of the best food we have eaten in Thailand and one of the best cooking classes I have done in Asia. Highly recommended.
One of the best cooking classes I have done, the food was absolutely perfect and the instruction quite detailed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. English skills were quite good to. I would recommend to anyone.
I hope to learn more different dishes on other days Or can choose dishes what I like It’s really fun
Great experience. Worth going!
It’s just out of our expectations... good instructor, good arrangement, good deco and good food! We’ve made 4 traditional courses (tong yum gong, green curry, phad tai, mango sticky rice), cooking while eating is the best! We will remember that “MAKE IT LOOKS MORE EXPENSIVE!!” and thanks for the extra tiger prawn for me hehee.
I would highly recommend Silom Thai Cooking Class to anyone. Oat the Chef instructor was excellent😀
Very good environment Very good flow Professional cooking bible after class
We had a superb time visiting the market and learning how to cook Thai dishes. This course allowed us to understand the ingredients in each Thai dishes and now could cook the simple dishes ourselves and share them with our friends. Thank you.
Perfect organization. Nice teacher who knows a lot about Thai food and explains everything just perfect. The food we cooked was delicious! And the cooking book includes all important things you have to know.
Was very nice time , the Cook was very proffesinal and explain very clear about the ingridients and the cooking steps. Enjoyed it very much.
Goong is an awesome teacher! She makes it all seem so easy! I enjoyed every minute of the class. Cook-Eat-Cook-Eat-Cook-Eat-Cook-Eat... you get the picture! Highly recommended!
Very knowledgeable instructor on Thai cuisine and it’s preparation. Great tour of food market nearby. Fantastic booklet given to everyone at the end of class. Loaded with classic Thai recipes. Highly recommend cooking class.
An awesome experience in learning Thai cooking. The classroom is well-designed, making the whole place pleasant for cooking.
We were in a small group with Chef Goong: she was really funny, great teacher and spoke English fluently. Very nice atmosphere and highly recommended.
Very nice n clear explanation to guide us. Not too difficult steps for cooking after class!👍
Instructor was funny and a great teacher .Shows you how to cook Thai food and you get a book with recipes highly recommend siloms cooking school .
The staff are super nice, the cheff super professional, and the experience is cool, you get the feeling every one can do it! I lost my recipe book which you received in class so the school send me new one to my hotel, how nice is that? Thank you Silom cooking school
Nice host / trainer, well organized and tasty food -> Would do again!
Chef Jai was superb. Very much enjoyed our class.
Thoroughly enjoyed this class. Quick visit to the market before the short stroll to the cooking school. The information provided by Oat, was interesting and he also made it fun. We made tamarind sauce, coconut milk, green curry paste, Tom Yum Soup, Pad Thai, Chicken Green Curry and watched Oat make a spicy chicken salad and finished off the class with mango and sticky coconut rice. The class is well worth it and I would highly recommend. (And if you are early as I was, you can have a quick foot massage at the massage place located next door to the meeting point - 150 THB for 30 mins!)
Great day with colorful, tasty food. It was my first cooking class, but not last. You are cooking one dish and then eat it (If you're full you can take it away). Don't forget to bring your camera, because camera eat first. You'll see how they prepare decorations to make photos great. The teacher will take also photo of you during the cooking :)
This class was recommended to us by a local friend in Bangkok and was a major highlight of our trip. After a week of traveling and eating as much as possible the meals we made here are still our favorites. Our teacher An was very knowledgeable and helpful, made learning the intricacies of Thai cooking so much fun. Definitely make time for this class!!
I have been on quite a few cooking classes around SEAsia and this was by far the most lively, entertaining, and fun cooking class. Each Student got to cook their own dishes and got to learn about each ingredient and how to make the dish truly "our own." The teacher, Jay, was hilarious, vibrant, and very knowledgable. He was also able to explain the ingredients in different languages for the different cooks. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend!! :)
This class was phenomenal, including a market tour and cooking 5 classic Thai dishes. Instructors were superb, and the class was executed impeccably. Highly recommended.
I was assigned to a group of 10 led by Chef Goong. She was an amazing teacher- funny, knowledgable and spoke fluent English. The assembly location was straight forward and the whole process was a smooth and easy one. It was truly an amazing and unique experience I had here in Bangkok. Highly recommend everyone to participate.
nice teacher, good food, very nice atmosphere
We spent our afternoon with Joo, at Silom cooking school, and it was the best thing we did in Bangkok! She had a great raport with the class, we laughed lots, and of course the food was amazing!! The school is very well organized, and everything flowed seamlessly from one dish to the next. We’ve already recommended this class to good friends heading to Bangkok as a must do! And we can’t wait to use the cook book once we get home!
The chef A is humorous, made the class very enjoyable.
We learnt so much in the 3 hours we were there. 100% would recommend.
i enrolled to learn how to cook thai dishes. i learned quite a few things as well as introduced to a little thai culture. cooking experience was truly fun and had a chance to be with other nationalities. nice atmosphere.
Can give us more hands on on food preparation and more decision making on ingredient portion. Overall is very engaging and food turn out very well. Love it and will recommend to friends and family.
The environment (cooking school) feel like home and the learning style is very amusing
We can't believe we can cook Thai cuisine so well.
I thought their preparations and setting up was so great. I owe to them, I could cook 5 kinds of food smoothly. And also I liked the explanation of ingredients. It helped me to understand why Thai food is unique and delicious. Thank you.
Had an amazing time learning Thai food.our chef,Nam made the class very interesting and informative..
Jay was a very good chief teacher I have learn thaï cuisine in a good ambiance We were about 8 people with children too ! Good class , good cook I ate a lot from appetizer to dessert ( mango sticky rice yummy !!!
I went there alone, it wasn’t weird even though everyone was in couples but the class was really good. I did enjoy it also I’m not a big cooker, but trying to do things I haven’t done before and it was an amazing experience and I actually think I can cook this at home
Its worth attending the class with nice teacher J. Highly recommended!
Our instructor today is joo who has high enthusiasm at teaching, I am glad to have her in class. There are 10 classmates in this class.The classroom is a bit crowded. From market trip to end class , total is about 2hours. I think 3hurs will be proper. Generally speaking, this is a fun class, recommend.
Excellent trainer, explanations and location. However the afternoon market tour isn't really a tour as the market is closed (poor description) and more hands on cooking behind the workstations would be good (rather than just watching). Overall good value for money and lots of yummy fun!
The market tour could be more authentic. The cooking clas itself was great.
Although I joined alone, I was able to enjoy it without hesitation because I was a small group. I am not very good at English, but my teacher explains it clearly and is kind. Cooking procedures are simple, and tasty! It was fun to know that if you have any materials, you can feel free to make Thai dishes.
IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE. Highly recommend it !!
I enjoyed the experience. I learned a lot of things about basics in Thai cuisine and I ate well. The teacher was fun.
The chef was fun & made us aware of so many more ingredients that are available. The school was extremely clean and efficient and of course the food we cooked was so Amazing. Loved it❤️, highly recommend. 5 stars 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👌🙏🏾
Very hands on experience, and well informed chef jay Thanks
It was great cooking and tasting three most famous Thai dishes in one afternoon. What makes it even better is that people joined in are quite diverse, so I could hear different points of view for Thai food. Overall, GREAT!!
The only comments would be: - The market tour. Not really a tour. We just walked up to a stall and the ingredients were explained. We could have done his in the class itself. - And towards the end you have to find your way back to your hotel. It would have been better to end at the starting point in my opinion. Other than that it's a good fun day out. The location was nice and the way it was done as well. You cool a dish, then eat. That repeats itself throughout the day.
It's our first time to come to Thai cooking class and it was amazing! dishes were easy to make and the taste was delicious!!! Cannot wait to come back and visit!
This is our first visit to Thailand and we loved this class! We eat a lot of Thai food at home in Australia and enjoy home cooking. Although this class was a beginner level and involved cooking foods we are already familiar with, we still thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Our guide and chef Oat, was enthusiastic, informative and entertaining. He gave us great insight into the culture and cuisine, plus we loved his dry wit. The dishes we created were fresh and delicious (if we do say so ourselves!) We certainly shouldn't have filled on a large breakfast beforehand either! Thanks to the great recipe book we were provided with we will be recreating these dishes using our new skills for friends and family at home. We would recommend this class to anyone looking to do something a little different on their Bangkok adventure. Great value for money and good fun, even for those who are a little beyond beginner status.
I took this class on the next day I arrived in Bangkok. It was even my first time to visit Thailand so I was a bit nervous, but I could reach the meeting point with no problem and stuff and all classmates were so kind, I was relieved! As soon as we got together, we were heading to the market tour. It was amazing because the market was full of fantastic local ingredients and people with beautiful smiles! Also, the teacher explained every single ingredient for each dish so well with her entertainment. Now I know the reason why each dish tastes sweet, sour and spicy and how the color of Thai curry becomes yellow, red and green! After the tour, we went to the studio and cooked 4 items. While we were cooking, the teacher never even stopped entertaining! Also, she created the great atmosphere, so it was so comfortable to ask her a lot of questions! She is the great teacher!!! In addition, each dish was very tasty and very fulfilling amount! I'm so happy that I can cook 4 amazing Thai dishes now! I'll definitely cook for my friends and family when I get back to my country! This class is highly recommended!
the course was amazing, the teacher was great, the food was so tasted, I'm so glad I booked for the course, it made my trip so special.
Good for beginners who just want a different activity other Temples and Shopping. Better appreciation of what ingredients was used and make the less attractive coloured thai food more palatable.
This cooking class is for total novel and beginner. Don't expect you will be Iron Chef by the end of the class, but it's an experience filled with waves of laughter and cultural learning. Jay our instructor, is extremely talented with language and there's never a dull moment with him around. He is also very informative, and have lots of good stories to share!! Definitely, a Cooking Class to go for if you can spare some time in BKK!! Class located just 10 min taxi ride from Central World area
This class was quite interesting! You can learn how to choose the fresh materials and ingredients for Thai food, to prepare them in proper way for making them more delicious, and to cook them in right way. In preparation, mosr impressive one was to squeeze the shredded coconut and made fresh coconut milk by myself and used it for cooking. That really changed the taste better! And you can understand what is the real Thai food, with many class attendants from all over the world. I enjoyed the class very much and I will recommend to my friends.
Easy to learn, and let us learn about different kind of Thai food !
Brilliant class, really enjoyed the whole class. Oat (?sp) our chef was awesome, great guy. Everything was made easy for you, if we did again, we'd maybe see if we could do a slightly more challenging class, as both confident cooks, but we still learnt loads and loved the session. The food we cooked was the best we've had so far in SE Asia!
It was a very good class! The teacher is really good! I learned a lot abou Thai gastronomy!
I liked everthing about it
Me and my friends took the Sunday afternoon class with this young male teacher (don't know his name tho). Everything was prepared in a very organized way and we all enjoyed grocery shopping, cooking, and sharing foods. The ambience of the cooking school was also very cozy and lovely as if I'm invited to a local friend's house. Strongly recommend
The class is interesting, and the teacher is great. You may learn classic Thai food in 3 hours. Can't wait to try it at home! Highly recommended!!!
So well organized and smoothly executed - could not have hoped for a better experience!
Six of us were really enjoy the cooking experience. We have fun with other friends and enjoy cooking with master chef.
Thanks Juk We had great & fun, will come to learn advance.
It brings good experience between my boyfriend and I
very good experience in bangkok ,the decoration is pretty ,so that u can take good photo during the class
They truly have this down to an art. They not only manage to get us to the market to see the ingredients that we're going to be using, but we also made 5 different dishes - and made one of the ingredients for one of the dishes too - so we learned how to make 6 things in all. The food was delicious and the course was very reasonably priced. I had such a good experience in Bangkok that I though I would take a cooking class in Beijing and was shocked to discover that in Beijing a cooking class costs 3 to 4 times what this costs, so it is really very well and affordably priced. I highly recommend it!
Thanks Juk, we are very enjoy your teaching , this is my 1st successfully delicious dishes make by myself. love to join again. Tracy
From the meeting point, to the market tour, collecting our goods in a basket, through to cooking and eating - so much fun was had! High recommend the cooking school.
It was a great way to learn basics of Thai cooking. Dont regret taking the class at all. Loved every minute of it.
We had a great time, cooking and eating lots :)
Everything is good and enjoyable. Except should have mentioned on the web-site when it is the local market cleaning day and there is no tour scheduled.
The confirmation e-mail stated a meeting point but do not mention this is necessary to meet there. I told the taxi driver of the school location. After arrived the school, they told us the team have been met at the point and go direct to the Market. I missed the Market tour. Although the school allow me to attend the market tour afternoon, I have other places to go and can't join. I think your confirmation letter should write in more details, better send reminder before the class and ask the class to contact the applicants directly. Besides of the above missing, I have fun in the class. Just found it too short. Kelvin Leung
The class was amazing, just wish that it could last a little longer because it ends an hour earlier than written on schedule. Yet it's definitely worth going! would love to try out cookly in other countires too!
Totally worth the money and experience. Pim, our teacher was super nice and thorough. Food was absolutely amazing.
Our teacher, Naan, was fantastic. He was nice enough to offer substitutions, his English was great and had great people skills. Definitely worth it!
The Teatcher did a great job! She has a lovely humor, was very well orgsnized
The instructor is humorous and very kind, we enjoy it very much!
Not only adults, but also children ( we have 3 9-year-old kids) enjoyed the fun of cooking.
The dishes I made were awesome and tasted like restaurant quality.
It was a very good cooking class. One could cook each receipt by himself. Very good organisation
The cooking class is a pleasant surprise for value for money! The dishes are delicious! Little tip - bring an empty stomach to the class - you will be really satisfied!
Great food and energetic cooking teacher. Recommended must
This cooking class is a great intro into Thai cuisine. It's informative and the instructions given make it very easy. It's VERY well organized. Our instructor Joo was fabulous. She was helpful, very kind and made the experience fun!
Had a wonderful time at the cooking school! Our chef was amazing - she was fun, witty, and committed to making sure everyone enjoyed themselves. The menu was great - all the ingredients were fresh and the food was delicious. The school itself was clean and air conditioned. Highly recommend this experience!
Thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Silom Thai Cooking Class. It was very interactive and despite the various cooking experiences in the room, the teacher managed to keep it interesting and light hearted. The food was delicious and we all had fun being master chefs lol. Will happily do it again on my return to Thailand.
One of the TOP TWO things I did in my 10 days in Bangkok. I've had the pleasure to live work and eat accross the far east of asia over the past 7 years, and this was the first organized cooking class that i've had the pleasure to pay for. I've cooked with friends and watched skilled "uncles" behind a wok and asked questions, but this is without a doubt the best thing i've had the pleasure to pay for. Our instructors and their staff organized, explained and coached us in ways that you couldn't get from a book, and gave us hints and insight that you really would not get a feel for by watching hours of youtube videos: believe me, I have done so. When I come back to Bangkok, i'll be coming to class again.
That was so much fun and a really really nice place to cook and enjoy food. Don't miss that!
The class was very organized with assistants preparing vegetables used in cooking which freed students to do more cooking in a limited time. The visit to the market was interesting and informative. Our instructor, Oat, spoke good English and had a great sense of humor, which made the class fun and students relax. All in all a great time at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!
My friend and I had so much fun with the Silom cooking class.. Our teacher Koong was excellent, so much energy and our class was interactive. I've had the best thai food so far! :)
Fabulous... great teachers, great food... I may not find exactly the same at home but got a few tips along the way...
It's a totally green experience towards me in Bangkok although been there numerous times. A sure for me to go back and learn other dishes, as soon as I could.
i really enjoyed. perfect time to feel thailand. my teacher was humorous and eager to teach. we laughed and cook at the every moment. the amount of food is quite a lot. i was so much full. dont eat too much before the class. it is a tip.
Hello, I'm Aya from Japan who joined cooking class and Market excursion! I'm really interested in fresh thai vegitables, so it was so helpful and fun to know them. Teacher tells us very well and make the class atmosphere happy and fun. The food was awesome! Tom Yum Goong and Pad thai is the BEST I've ever had! I defenetly want to join again and tell my friends to join them too!! Thank you so much!
Our group of three had a wonderful time, with fresh produce identification at markets, prepping, learning, cooking then eating what we made. Clean environment, fresh produce, The cooking teacher was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. Learned a lot, and even given a wonderful recipe book to take home. Highly recommended!!!
Thank you for a wonderfull experience. I learned a lot about cooking Thai food and all the ingedients. Our host was very charming and entertaining. Thank you!!!
We took the class with the whole family and we all loved it! Would highly recommend it :-)
