So excited to try my new skills at home! The class was great and so was the teacher. It was fun meeting and spending time with the other participants. The food we cooked tasted wonderful. Thank you!
We were taught about the core Thai ingredients, and first made up a variety of pastes. We then used these to make Tom Yam soup, peanut sauce, massaman, green and red curries, pad thai and to finish, mango and sticky rice. The course has given us the tips and confidence to apply what we learned when we get back home. Plus Nim taught us some Thai dancing to help work off some of what we had eaten!
Wonderful vegetarian cooking class. We learned so much and the teacher was so helpful! We made a lot of different dishes ( too many to actually eat there ) would highly recommend this class to anyone thinking about doing one in chiang mai!
This class was so much fun and everything we made was delicious! Very well taught and we came hungry and left stuffed.
Nim was so kind and informative. We had a great time asking questions and her help was wonderful.
It was great, very good recipes and very funny!😉
Great cooking class using fresh ingredients. Tastiest food I’ve ever made! You are given the recipes and we had a delicious four course meal of the food that we made. Really friendly people running the class. Would definitely go again! Highly recommended
A lot of cool recipes, nice atmosphere
From the recipes to the instructions everything was superb. Food was delicious and the instructions were organised, timely and helpful. I can easily recommend this course.
Really good class. We booked for the afternoon class and it was only us for the first hour then another 2 people joined for the rest of the class. We read the reviews so didn’t eat lunch but even then couldn’t finish all the food we made! We made chilli paste and peanut paste as well as green/red /yellow curry, papaya salad, tom yum and pad Thai. After all of that we watched to see how the dessert of sticky coloured rice with mango was made and ate that too! Very well organised and we learnt all about the herbs and spices used in Thai cooking. We were given a small booklet with the recipes to take home as well as take away cartons for our food. I would definitely recommend this cooking class to all!
The recipes were simple, elegant and delicious. Our instructor was knowledgeable and taught us about cooking basics but also how to adapt recipes based on our preferences. The chili paste is amazing and you will be hard pressed not to add it to every one of your dishes. I would definitely recommend!
Fruit carving is not easy and needs much effort. I think it is nice for beginners. Ice is a really good teacher :) He gave me lots of compliments and it made me happy! Thanx! Highly recommend it!

All recipes optimized for the vegetarian perfectly
Without a doubt, one of the highlights of our trip! The process was simple and the results amazing. The fact that it was vegetarian/vegan made it possible for me to try all the elements of the dish, which was a plus. The teacher is super friendly and helpful. I would recommend this cooking class to anyone!! It was a very fun morning and I’m sure I’ll be cooking Thai when I get back home, since we get a cooking book with the recipes we made and a few more to take with us!
I loved that everything once single portioned so each person was able to cook all 10 dishes on their own and learn all of them instead of watching others make some of the dishes.
Great class, great teacher, fresh ingredients, easy to follow fun and great atmosphere
We had a very enjoyable afternoon with Nim, our teacher. We cooked up a variety of vegetarian soups, curries, and salads, and a dessert, too. We made them from scratch with fresh ingredients. Highly recommended!
We made so many dishes and learned a bunch of new techniques and about different Thai ingredients. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in Thai food! They’re able to adapt recipes as well for vegans and people who eat gluten-free.
I can't even describe how much I loved it! It was the highlight of my chiang mai stay. I adore Thai cuisine and cook it a lot at home, so to go and to cook all the local dishes was amazing. The teacher herself was the kindest person, I truly enjoyed our chats and her style of teaching. If I'm back to CM I can ill sure come back! So so recommend to anyone!
I had a great time. Our teacher was super lovely and nice and funny. We cooked 10 different dishes & it was super interesting to see and learn how Thai food is being made. I would recommend everyone to go there during your stay in chiang mai!
I'm very enjoy to learn the fruit carving in Bangkok, the teacher are so good, but a bit disappointed are the timing are a bit shorted as stated till 6pm. The class finish before 5.30pm
We really enjoyed our cooking class. The ingredients were fresh, the food incredibly delicious and our teacher very patient and talented. It's great to learn authentic vegetarian/vegan Thai food - thank you, May Kaideen
We really enjoyed the cooking class. Our teacher was super nice and the food was super delicious. I can highly recommend it!
We learned how to make chili pastes, Pad Thai, curries, peanut sauce, spring rolls, and mango sticky rice. All great vegan options. The food was delicious and plentiful. We would take the class again.
I highly recommend you try this class! No matter you’re level of comfort with cooking this class is very accessible and straightforward
We made 5 recipes in just two hours. Nim was the perfect balance between letting us make the recipes on our own while also stepping in to prevent any cooking disasters! Everything we made was delicious and we were able to take away what we were not able to finish. I was also provided extra water as she could see how hot I was :)
Lovely day, amazing cooking class. Can't recommend it enough!
I absolutely loved my experience. The instructor was excellent and so good at what she does. Her instructions were clear and I appreciated her guidance. She have so many useful tips. The food was fantastic. We made all of my favourites and I'm looking forward to being able to make the food at home. The instructor was so helpful with tips on how to be able to recreate the dishes back in Canada. Thank you so much. I have been raving and recommending the school to all of my vegan/non vegan friends and colleagues.
The class was totally worth it and one of the best classes I’ve ever had. Loved the teacher and we cooked all my favorite food!
When I get there i was so excited and curious as a child and all my expectation were absolutely right. I had a lot of fun and learn as much secret and traditions about the Thailand's cuisine and it vegetarian way. Ill recommend it for sure!
The class itself was a real recommendation! The size of the group was not too big, the food was delicious, the instructor was very friendly, helpful and enthusiastic and the instructions were clear and easy. Already looking forward to making the food at home... :)
Our teacher, Dim, was incredible. Cooking was fun and the class was very well organized, moved at a perfect pace and we got to try so many different dishes! I highly recommend this class to everyone!
It was so much fun cooking and learning all the recipes with her, it was super easy to follow all the steps and the results were amazingly tasty!! She was really nice and in the middle of the class, she taught us a Thai song that she composed and also at the end we learn how to dance in Thai style! All of us had a great time and we ended really full and happy! Great experience that I highly recommend everyone! Thanks so much!!
I asked my fiance to bring me to a vegan restaurant while we were visiting Thailand. I am 5 months pregnant and i have been craving for something spicy and oriental. I was surprised that he brought me to a cooking class wherein we made chili paste from scratch, got to choose our own herbs and its perfectly vegan! I cook most of the time at home, but I never really thought that Thai techniques really differ from our own way of cooking. They exert effort on different methods and processes that is why the taste becomes authentic and mouthwatering. The cooking environment was relaxing. My belly baby was happy.
One of the best in Thailand! I was really surprised and ecstatic to know that there is a vegan cooking school in Chiang Mai. As a vegetarian, i was able to savor each Thai ingredient and it made me felt their culture through my bones. I loved the Thai herbs workshop. It taught me a lot especially on the right mixing and matching of different herbs. The host was very warm and kind. She made sure that i got all ingredients and instructions right without being intimidating. I'm not a great cook but my Thai dish tasted professionally than expected. I would definitely come back for more!
I would recommend this 100%. It was so fun and quite delicious. The staff was amazing! It was unique and something you can take home!
Very well organized, friendly and funny instructor, delicious food (so much food!), and useful tips. A highlight of our time in Thailand. All recipes were vegan, other than pad Thai, which used an optional egg.
A lot of care and thought devoted to the management of this experience. The dishes are beautiful - don't eat anything before the class!
Super fun class! We did the fruit carving class and I highly recommend it. Interesting and absolutely fun! We will be back for another one. Thank you!
Great experience all around. Our host was phenomenal and so were her recipes. I would highly recommend this class - what an experience and we are already planning for our first meal at home. Dress in cool comfy clothes.
Easy recipe and nice teachers!
Great class with a lovely host. Make sure you skip breakfast and lunch because you’re going to be absolutely stuffed.
As I'd done a wonderful cooking class in Chiang Mai the week before, I searched the internet for one in Bangkok. Wow to find a food carving course was a bonus as I'd admired the carved food on the cruise ships that we had traveled on over the passed 15 years. It was fantastic to see and learn the technique to produce the wonderful items myself. Our teacher was 'One'.... Yes strange name but what a lovely, patient and gently person. I did the 5 hour carving course with a guy from Israel and we had so much fun together... As it was held at a restaurant, they also prepared us a fantastic lunch, Pad Thai, while we continued to learn. I would highly recommend that you do the course to learn how to carve food so that your next dinners would be special and your friends would be so amazed.... I will be doing this again when we next return to Bangkok. Regards Lee from Australia
Great class with a brilliant teacher. I was the only student so had a private class. The food was amazing and there were opportunities to take pictures of the food too
I can highly recommand this cooking class. The instructor was very friendly and explained everything very detailed. We made 8 differnet dishes/sides and I was allowed to eat them all or take them away. Can't wait to cook the recipes at home. Thank you so much!
It shouldn'tbe, but it was a private class cause my boyfriend and I were the only two that day so it was a very intimate class, they teach very good and they are very kind!! I learned how to cook 7 different vegrtarian/vegan dishes dishes from the thai tradition!! Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was great to learn vegetarian Thai cooking. The place was clean. The instructors were very friendly and had a good sense of humor.
I really loved the cooking course with Nim! We were in a small group of 5 and sometimes paired up but there was so much food that it was ok (I've been eating leftovers for breakfast and reminiscing about the class for two days). We learned 10 recipes in the short time and had so much fun. It's pushed me to try and find a real wok and mortar and pestle before I fly home :)
Totally recommend this place for everyone. Every dish was so tasty and the teacher was so nice. The class was really fun. I will definitely go back to do it again and try different dishes.
My friend and I took this class. We got to prepare 6 dishes and it was a fantastic experience to learn about the basic of Thai cooking. Then I got to eat the food I made. All dishes tasted so good. In addition everyone received a recipe booklet. This is a great activity.
Small class so very good tuition. Friendly and genuine staff. Egg in pad Thai recipe but can be omitted. Overall highly recommended.
Nim was a great teacher she explains how to make everything slowly and makes you feal that you can do this at home no problem well explained and very nice people would come here for more cooking lessons
