We took the afternoon class and since it was off season, there was only two of us so we had perfect private lesson. Everybody was super friendly and funny, place has beautiful garden and sitting area. Dishes we made were even better than those in restaurants :D! Great must do experience, highly recommended! We also got recipe book so we can cook thai meals at home. We really enjoyed our time with you, thank you again! :)

I loved learning how to cook such a wide variety of dishes! The staff was very helpful and and the class was structured professionally. Also, the recipe book we received after the lesson is so detailed that I can’t wait to try making these new dishes at home! Overall, it was a lovely way to spend a rainy morning in Chiang Mai.
Really enjoyed in a a beautiful setting. Very friendly and learnt a lot. Really worth the money
We got picked up and brought to the market. A relatively quiet one. Very good to look around and take everything in. Followed by an explanation of Thai ingredients in the garden. We were able to make 5 courses and our own curry. Everything was explained very well and the staff was very patient. They taught us well, the atmosphere was great and the cook book we got in the end is better than I expected. I feel like we could all make the recipies at home and had the best experience in Thailand so far!
We learned a lot about the spices used in Thai cooking. From their flavor profiles to how they are sourced!
I love it
Thanks to the pick-up service, it's not a problem to reach the school. The visit at the market gives you background in the main ingredients found in the Thai cuisine. The school itself is located in countryside and has a nice garden where you could play with the owners' dogs. The 'classroom' is big enough to accommodate up to 30 persons, though I was a part of 10-persons group. As majority of the group were Swiss, for most of the lesson we were assisted by Michael, the school owner, who is Swiss himself. The teachers, Art and Gem, were very attentive and cheerful. They gave tips that were easy to follow even by the children attending the class. A nice touch is a cookbook received at the end of the class.
Cooking with these guys was one of the best experience in Thailand. They are very customer oriented, nice, cute, always smiling and joking. The place is wonderful (peaceful zen garden outside of the city). Ingredients are all fresh. We were in a group of 5 and each of us has its own instructor ;) also they explained everything clearly and were very helpful - in the end the food was delicious. Also what I have appreciated - we could choose our own menu, so in the end we could taste even more then 6 dishes :-) I truly recommend this cooking school :)
Fantastic experience with the nicest staff, they couldn't do enough to make sure everyone was happy! Our teacher, Art was so funny and chatty. My friend and I are vegan but there were substitute ingredients for everything and we were able to make the same meals as everyone else. The food we made was delicious and we were all given a recipe book to take home. So glad we chose to end our time in chiang mai with a visit to the Siam garden cooking school
The Flyer of Siam Garden Cooking School was the most appealing, so we booked the morning course with 6 dishes for 900 Baht - Best price performance ratio I could find. We were lucky no one else wanted to get up early this day and it was just the two of us with the very friendly staff. All ingredients were fresh and everything was need and tidy. The dishes we made, were delicious and Momi was always helpfull. We will cook thai food back home in Germany with the help of the recipe book we got at the end :) Thank you for this great experience!
Such a friendly guy with a great sense of humour! Got to cook six different Thai dishes and as there was only 2 of us it was almost like a private class! Great price for a half days course and so much food. Really friendly staff and such a beautiful garden. Tae explained about all the different plants in the garden so we knew what we were putting in our dishes! Got a recipe book with loads of easily understood recipes so I can’t wait to practice some more! Definitely worth a visit!
