Once we started to cook the ingredients the teacher went a bit too fast but in general I really appreciated this class and I can’t wait to cook it back those delicious meals at home :)

Boss was very patient and told us lots of important things in Thai cooking!
Overall, it was a great experience. The variety at Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy in terms of dishes we were able to cook, was a bit greater than at other schools I've seen. It was nice to have the option to go a bit outside the typical dish selection of green curry, pad thai, fried rice, etc that all the other schools do and do something like Khao Soi and Pad See Ew and other less-common cooking school dishes. Instructors were friendly, had great english, and the food turned out delicious.
The whole experience was great. The teacher had lots of enthusiasm and made it fun. Everything was well prepared and the fact that you were able to cook 6 dishes in one session was great. All in all, I would highly recommend this cooking school.
A group of three of us attended and it was great being able to choose dishes that we each preferred and being able to try their options at the end too. The variety was what sold us on this class and we weren't let down. The teacher, Unice, was great. She was easy to understand even giving instructions for multiple dishes at once. I would highly recommend!!
Lots of fun and tasty dishes.
It was a good time, learned to make lots of dishes and found out that Thai cooking is not that hard once you have the right ingredients. One thing I would change is to cook a few courses and then eat them. Not cook all five at once. Best Timothy
I love, love, love this cooking experience in Thailand. Best part is getting able to choose from a long list of dish options. Other programs force you into their standard menu. This was my third time in 3 years and enjoyed it tremendously. One improvement, IMO, was dropping the time consuming and physically challenging process of grinding your own curries and spice mixtures. Historically and culturally interesting, but even Thai people don't do that anymore. Learning how to buy at the Asian grocery store will surely be a much more useful skill once I am back home. (Pro tip: bring a GoPro on a small tripod or clip mount. Cooking 5 Thai dishes can get intense. Having a video helps me remember exactly what I did once the ingredients went into the wok.)
The instructor was awesome! We had so much fun.
Informative, and fun:)
We enjoyed the short tour around the market to see the local product we would be using. The chef explained clearly as we cooked making sure we all ended with 5 incredible meals. It was the best food we ate in Bangkok in the three days we were there....and we made it!
The instructors were very good and made the experience fun.
It was very fun and educational. Instructors made the session easy and interesting. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a different holiday experience.
Very energetic teaching staff, very nice course mate. The arrangement of market visiting, ice-breaking game and cooking are so enjoyable. The food that we cooked were all super tasty!
GREAT time and I feel well prepared with the online recipes provided to cook Thai at home in Canada.
The tour of the market was a GREAT added value and "Wink" was a wonderful guide! Our friends and family back in Canada are all asking for a Thai dinner which will come shortly. Thanks for your help and insights into Thai cooking and culture.
Our teacher Eunice was hilarious and made the day so enjoyable! The instructions were easy to follow and all the food was delicious 😋
The staff is very friendly and funny, the entire cooking session was full of laughs. Definitely will come back for the intermediate level next time.
The teacher for our small morning group was great and easy to follow. The two young women who greeted us at the meeting point were also very friendly and helpful playing backup roles during the class. That said, I feel like they’re trying to cram too much into too short an amount of time. The “market tour” really wasn’t. We walked to a stall where they’d clearly prearranged with the owner to stand there and show us which vegetables were which. We didn’t actually buy any ingredients there, nor were we shown “how” best to shop at an open-air market like this. It wasn’t at all busy; it would have been easy enough to actually do a short tour. And if that’s not in the cards, then why go at all? The produce lesson could have happened in the classroom I chose this class solely for the ability to pick my own five dishes to learn. I’m glad I did, but even the cooking was not completely ours. Our instructor showed us what went into each dish, and has us chop vegetables but when it was time to cook, other things — mainly proteins — suddenly appeared by our cooking stations. All in all, probably the most I could hope for in a half-day class; next time I’d choose something a bit more intensive.
The guide we had was great. Spoke English well, was informative at the market visit explaining the different fruit and vegetables. The cooking class was great, with well explained easy steps. The food we cooked was delicious. Would highly recommend this cooking class and would love to do another one with them the next time we're in Bangkok
Lots of cooking classes in Bangkok, but you can't go wrong with this one!
Thoroughly enjoyed learning Thai cooking at this class. The instructors were great and taught us to cook several dishes in under 4 hours.
Absolutely love being able to cook FIVE different authentic Thai meals. We had as much freedom as a cooking class on a schedule could offer. I enjoyed that not everything was pre prepared in that we still cut all of our own veggies and such. We also fully cooked all of our meals. I was happy with all my meals but I had friends that loved the experience but were not the most satisfied with their final meals. Definitely one of the better cooking classes in Bangkok!
It was a good experience and we got a chance to be juste three of us! Nice place to cook good ambiance and Seen a good instructor!
We loved the experience. It was interesting going to the market & having some knowledge of the vegetables & herbs. The teacher Sin was good fun. So well organised & good value.
Thanks for a wonderful experience, Ben. Your school is highly organise and very enjoyable. Top marks and five stars.
