The class was excellent. The driver picked us up on time. The friendly teachers met us at the market and we started with a short market tour. We learned a lot about different types of traditional Thai food. The school was in a beautiful environment, clean and nice. We learned how to cook one entree, three dishes, and one dessert. The teachers were great. It was an unforgettable experience.

This was a great experience. From the hotel pickup, to the market tour, to the dishes, everything was a blast! Can’t recommend this enough to anyone who wants to learn more about Thai cuisine.
Great way to experience and learn more about Thai food! Tour overall was very well organised, market tour in the morning was very informative. Actual cooking class was very hands on, loved the ability to customise the menu so you get to cook all your favourite meals. Be warned: do not eat before you go, you will be given a lot of food!
Very well organized, always entertaining. Nice venue, great staff. Learned a lot about Thai cooking.
It was a great experience!
If you enjoy food and cooking this is a must! Expert instruction from the lovely Christine but what she also bought to the experience was a nice friendly and relaxed vibe. I loved the market experience which was an education in itself. The school was well equipped, clean and airy with beautiful views. There are I think ten cooking stations, plenty of room to move around and after your hard work you get to eat your delicious creation along with wine (at a small additional cost). Water is free. The leftovers can be boxed up to take away which is just as well because the portions are big. I loved every minute and will do it again.
Nice atmosphere, great instruction and beautiful food.
Had a fantastic afternoon cooking 6 different dishes. It was a lot of fun also eating everything after the class was amazing! Would definitely recommend
The teacher and assistants were so engaging and made it fun. Our dishes were so delicious and while the cooking process went so fast we really hope we can recreate these back at home. It was a truly memorable day and would highly recommend anyone thinking of doing it to book this event. I had researched so many events and glad we chose this. A special birthday treat for my husband. Keep up the good work!
The class was so great and the instructors were really fantastic. I highly recommend it!
The visit to the local market was interesting because the guide took time to introduce and explain to us the local fruits, vegetables, sauces etc.. and gave us time to explore the market on our own to buy what we wanted for ourselves. There were street food as well that we could buy and eat immediately. The cooking school is very cosy and the kitchen is air-conditioned. Instructions for cooking were provided step by step so if you are really slow at learning, you will still do fine. The teachers were very patient and outgoing and we sat together around a table to eat the end product of our many dishes for lunch. It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend this! :)
The class was great. We had a very fun, energetic guide for the market tour, and the cooking class itself was informative and interesting. Plus the food was amazing :) would recommend
This class catered for the individual choices - not a one stop shop.
We enjoyed it very much and learned many new tricks.
I am very glad I came across Phuket Cooking Academy! It was a very good way to spend half a day in Phuket learning Thai cuisines. The market tour prior to the cooking class was a nice touch and we really appreciated the inclusion of hotel pick-up and drop off. The place itself was clean and the view was a wonderful surprise. Would overall recommend this activity and the Phuket Cooking Academy.
Das ganze war sehr gut organisiert. Die Gerichte waren top vorbereitet und MiuMui und Say waren sehr kompetent. Ein Lob auch den beiden Ladies die immer alles sofort abgewaschen haben. Das ganze war eine Freude von Anfang an bis zum Schluss. Ich werde wiederkommen, wenn ich das nächste Mal in Kathu bin. Weiter so 👍👍👍 Beste Grüsse Gabriella
We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking experience. I am not a cook and worried I would look silly. On the contrary, I completed all my courses confidentially and they tasted great. The building, view and ambience were fabulous. I feel comfortable to come home and make a couple of the dishes. I think this is great value for money.
We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Would recommend to novice and experienced cooks.
The ambiance and the location of the class were both terrific. It was great to go to the market first and learn about the ingredients even though we didn't actually purchase all the specific ingredients for the class right at that time. The class was very well organized, ran smoothly and we made lots of food and could even take home leftovers. It was great to get the recipes too. The class teacher King did a very good job. HIghly recommended.
When booking tours through internet you never really know what you are going to get, but this tour really surpassed our expectations. Both the market tour and cooking class were extremely interesting to us, and the atmosphere, location, facilities and way of teaching were all very pleasant. We had a small group and had a very nice and personal cooking class by funny and nice Thai chef cook King and an assistant. Although no newcomers in cooking, we learned a lot, and of course the food was delicious. A real recommendation if you are looking to learn more about Thai food and culture.
