Our cooking school is known to vegetarians and vegans throughout the world. Our standard class is held over half a day either in the morning or afternoon. Schedules for both the morning and afternoon classes are listed below.
May Kaidee's cooking school has been around since 1988 and we've proudly hosted thousands of students since then from over 50 different countries.
What I liked: We learned how to prepare raw Thai dishes. The recipes were explained to us and we were encouraged to take our own notes on each dish before we cooked them. This is useful for when it comes time to cook the dishes by ourselves at home.
What to know: No market tour here but they make up for it with other fun activities! The recipes are not traditionally Thai because they take a few short cuts with the dishes, but you will see that it is pretty easy to substitute meat for vegetables in Thai food.
Good for: Friends and family. There are some activities like Thai dancing that are fun and are good for those that are always up for a good laugh.
Best way to get there: Go to Ratchathewi BTS station and the get on a motorbike that should cost you 100 baht to Khaosan.

Really enjoyed our cooking class. Didn't realise how easy it is to make beautiful vegetarian Thai food .
I took the afternoon class which typically has less students. There was a total of 7 of us learning Thai cooking. The teacher was amazing and knew what he was doing. We made Tom Yum Chili paste and eight dishes. Go to the class hungry because you eat your way through the class. I highly recommend May Kaidee's cooking class.
The cooking class was so nice in involving recipes for vegan and vegetarians and especially with it in unique, authentic Thai taste. Loved us learning dancing and Thai too afterwards.
I could’ve done without the dance at the end, but the rest was flawless. I will delight guests with these recipes for a looong time to come.
Great balance of activities between cooking and interaction. Instructor was friendly and professional. Superb experience.
I've tried several Thai cooking classes, but Mai Kaidee's seems to be the most logical in that the instructor reviewed the recipe before cooking. For the cooking session, you had to follow the recipe. The other classes hand out a recipe book at the end. The instructor was very bubbly, pleasant, and gave useful instructions.
Great instructor who was friendly and professional. Food was simple and delicious. Will recommend others to try.
I had a great time at this class. I met other lovely travellers and we shared in a very cool experience. Our Chef host, Noode, took us through so many recipes and we cooked up a storm. We ate a lot of food that was very tasty. By the end I was full and we were offered take away containers to take our food home in. Noode was so kind and warm, offering us plenty of detail about the food and was really knowledgeable when we had questions about the food and culture. We laughed. We cooked. We ate and ate and ate and we danced and sang. This was a true highlight of my Bangkok stay. Great to make vegan versions of some Thai classics that I actually cooked for friends back at home just last night. Highly recommended.
This was one of my Bangkok highlights. Spending a few hours with a couple of people from all around the world, laughing, cooking and eating...so much eating. I love Thai food and learning quite a few recipes and how to adapt ingredients into vegan versions that were extremely fast was wonderful. Our host was generous and gracious with his time and energy, answering questions and sharing his skills. I was sad to stop visiting my local Thai restaurant as they couldnt do vegan cooking. I am thrilled to be able to do 6 or 7 dishes plus sauces from scratch myself. Highly recommended.
Loved learning about veg thai cooking. Could have been more food though. Small school, but plenty of space for the amount of students who were there.
The class made Thai cooking easy! I had a great time and would go back for another class next time I'm in Bangkok. They were professional, helpful, and fun. A great way to spend my time and money.
Best cooking lesson, leaned so many things!
The cooking class at May Kadees was one of our highlights during seven months of travelling. Our teacher Kina was great, really funny and made the course absolutely worthwhile. At the beginning of the course you get a recipe book with all the recipes included and how to prepar them step by step. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience!!
It was a very nice cooking class! Our chef was very friendly, we even celebrates songkran in the evening (the cooking class was in the morning). The recepies are easy and JAM!
Kina was so great—we loved the cooking class and look forward to more classes at May Kaidee's Cooking School! Highly recommend.
Let me start first by saying that I am not a vegetarian. Great experience and a lot of fun. We had taken a Thai cooking class last trip to Bangkok, but did this one for a different experience. Recipes were very flavorful surprisingly, without any fish sauce at all. I liked this different take on Thai and will definitely make some of the recipes.
