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

It turns out I did not only have wonderful class with 4 amazingly delicious dishes, but most importantly, I was greatly honoured to be friend of three professional teachers!!! Ingredients were super fresh, fully explanation of every single step of cooking, as well as alternative suggestions in case you couldn't able to find such authentic/original ingredients. Teachers are so friendly, humour, passionate and fully attentive during the whole session. Highly recommended! It was so special for me today as we cooked, shared food and had a "party" together to celebrate Thai new year. Thank you so much for your warm hospitality chefs!
Our instructor was wonderful. She was friendly, clear and accommodating. The food we prepared was delicious and filling! We left feeling very confident in what we learned with very satisfied tummys!
Silom Thai Cooking Experience is outstanding! They really put a lot of thought into every aspect of it — from the cute kitchen to the vibrant presentation of ingredients to hands-on cooking. The food is excellent and plentiful! I’d recommend this to anyone who likes to eat going to Bangkok.
Great instructors made easy understanding of Thai food! The best class ever!
Our chef was really nice and fun. The food was very good and tasty. Great experience Thank you
The food was delicious and everybody was super friendly! I would highly recommend this cooking class.
Nice experience! We did the 3hr evening class. Warm welcome with a bottle of water. Joy is a very friendly teacher and he speaks perfectly English and even a the herbs in different languages (Chinese, Dutch etc). Don’t expect that you walk away and know how to cook Thai. It’s more about cutting, learning about herbs etc.
I enjoyed both cooking and eating!
The cooking class was super, Chin was lovely and a great teacher. The food was gorgeous but I felt very rushed to eat each course.
The class is hidden but you’ll get visual cues with its signages displayed once you enter the alleyway. Took an Uber from Siam Center and it was about 150THB ($5USD) during peak hour of 5:30PM. The last class starts at 5. Advice: LEAVE AT 4PM lol. When I arrived, I took off my shoes, headed upstairs, got my bags into the locker (you get a key) and as an introvert, I felt comforted with the crowd that attended. Mostly flight steward and stewardess’s that were amongst the session. Our trainer is a lovely Thai woman and phenomenal motherly cook, that treated us with the works. She is hilarious. Our first dish was Tom Yum (seafood). After this dish and it’s secrets shared (she calls it a PASSWORD) you get the rhythm of the further dishes, latter. Next was Pad Thai, Red Curry, Green Curry and Mango with Sticky Rice WHICH was made for us. We premeditated this last dish at the beginning of the class before Tom Yum. That created a nice chemistry with the group (soaking our hands in coconut water, draining the coconut etc. Make sure you eat NOTHING hours beforehand and if you’re doing the evening class at 5, leave early. Value is hands down a clear winner, location is lols but it’s probably home owned. The atmosphere of the prepping room (theory room) and cooking kitchen (prac) is mediocre but hygienic. 4.5/5 would recommend to everyone at least one stage of their trip to Bangkok.
The cooking class was an amazing experience. Instructor was very methodical and made the entire session a fun exercise. I was in a team which had people from Philippines and Hong Kong, which made the learning, cooking and tasting much more interesting.
School was well organized and staff very welcoming. Class instruction was good and not too complicated. Our instructor Aye was the best. The food we prepared was delicious and we left with a nice recipe book. Class was easy to book online. Discount was given for prepaying class.
The school was well organized and our instructor was fantastic and we really loved every minute of it. The food was delicious as well~ would recommend it to all my friends.
The experience was fun and we learnt a lot! Portions looked small but we were so full after making all of the dishes! They were delicious and very fresh. The chef, Jay, was funny and very knowledgeable. He knew his stuff!! Would have been better if we had the options of alcohol as well as soft drinks - would have happily paid more for this during the class.
Very good class, enjoyable and funny, very interesting to learn more about Thai ingredients and how to use them.
We loved our cooking thai experience! We learned authentic dishes! Very well organized and well presented! The chef was so friendly and so funny as well! A must if you visit Bangkok! I recommend this place!
I don't know how to spell her name (Yi Chin?) but she was very funny and knowledgeable. Really enjoyed the class and the food tasted great. This class is very beginner friendly and a lot of fun. They give you a recipe book at the end so you can recreate the dishes if you want.
It was a good experience not just learn to cook but to know why Thai food is always so tasty. The secret ingredients and the variety of herbs it uses.
Great fun, informative about Thai food, well presented dishes all prepared so we could get on with cooking. Super chef who explained every step very well.
My wife and I greatly enjoyed the class and the instructor's clear, friendly and helpful stories and instructions! We will do it again!!!
The class seemed less authentic and more like a routine class, the instructor has already set scripts and was rushing us the entire time. We weren't really cooking our own dishes in a way that we make our dish from beginning to end, but we were just being introduced to the ingredients and cutting them up.
Jay is an awesome instructor. Funny humor and just pure with kindness. He really likes what he does. We took the evening class due to what was available. We still learned about the ingredients there origin and background. The class had Australian, Colombian, Korean, Chinese, British and American. Jay managed to speak to all of us and compare what ingredients we had back home. The dishes were easy but i know when i get home i won’t have Jay by my side. The food was amazing!! Makes me want to explore more and more now. Please try it, you will love it. The owner invests in his people. You have nothing to loose. You won’t regret it.
We had a good teacher who engaged with all of us despite the diversity in the class. He was very sincere and is definitely someone who is very passionate about sharing his culinary knowledge and was patient to answer all our questions. We learnt a lot about Thai herbs and the authenticity of Thai cuisine. The most important thing was we had a lot of FUN learning!!
I really enjoyed the cooking class. I also appreciate the service, I registered only less than 24 hours before and there was no problem. However, it would be nice to get more precise information on cookly, because it was advertised to be 3-hour class, but in reality it was just a little over 2 hours. If you really want to learn some Thai cooking, I'd definitely recommend doing a longer class!
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!
