Thailand’s capital is a mixing pot filled with opulent malls and sacred temples. However, it can be argued that the vibrant street life is what makes Bangkok stand out from every city. Weave your way through the Chao Phraya river, and in every corner you will find that Bangkok’s streets are filled with food. Explore the food that makes Bangkok so special with our cooking classes that will teach you how to make authentic Thai food. Most of our classes start off with a local market visit where you will have the opportunity to pick out fresh ingredients to use in your cooking. Some of our cooking classes even involve you visiting a local farm and picking out organic ingredients there. We also offer classes with vegan options! Whatever cooking class you choose, you are sure to finish the class with a smile and will have acquired Thai cooking skills to take back home.
"Great class and experience!"
I had a good experience cooking with the Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy. The instructor was nice and thorough, and I loved the ability to customize your meal based on your preferences. When you first start, you meet outside of an MRT station, and walk through a traditional market where the guide will talk you through all the essential ingredients for Thai cooking. In the end, you get to enjoy the delicious meal you cooked with your peers. Will recommend to anyone looking to learn Thai dishes!

"Amazing cooking class!"
I highly recommend taking cooking classes here. We met at Huai Khwang MRT station and walked to the market together. Nam explained how to get the best ingredients for Thai dishes. Then we drove to the cooking school in TukTuks.
We made Tom Yum Goong, Pad Thai, Panaeng Curry and Mango Sticky Rice. Everything was well organised.
Nam showed us step by step how to cook the dishes. She speaks English perfectly and is very humorous and talented.
I recommend to not eat before taking this class as you will be eating all the dishes. But if you‘re full before, Nam can give you boxes to take the food home.

"a greatly recommended cooking class experience - high energy, delicious meals"
We were a group of 4 that attended the class. All of us had a great time.
The cooking school brought the market to the cooking class which we appreciated as we had been sightseeing all morning. They explained the various ingredients which was very interesting and then we went on to cooking. All the dishes were fun and relatively easy to make and they tasted very good. We were absolutely stuffed at the end.
The entire class was VERY well organized, structured and executed. There was no wasted time. The school team was constantly bringing ingredients, cleaning up, resetting for the next dish. A great experience all around and definitely highly recommend it.

I took the class with my mum and sister and we loved it. It was the best part of our holiday in Bangkok. Pimmy was excellent, she had simple and clear explanations and we loved how she was able to make cooking easier and fun to learn. I also really appreciated her notes on similar products you can get in your home country so your able to replicate the recipes back home. The class was also small and intimate, we were 5 in total for the afternoon class and we really enjoyed meeting other people and just learning from each other and enjoying our appreciation for Thai cuisine. A must do when your in Bangkok

"Very fun and humorous lesson on cooking"
My team did a cooking class with Nam as our team-building event. We expected it to be a good learning class but boy, we did not expect it to be so much fun! Nam is so funny and cracked so much jokes that we were having so much fun while having to "toil away". We took the afternoon class and so weren't expecting a market tour so we were really surprised that she took us on a very informative market tour and send us back on Tuk-tuks. We learnt a lot and really enjoyed the food that we cooked, and most importantly, really enjoyed ourselves.

"Great cooking class"
Our family had a private class and we all enjoyed it. Our teacher Goong was amazing, she was so kind and a great chef and the food she helped us prepare was SO delicious. Our 3 daughters, where the youngest is 10 years, also enjoyed it very much and thought this class was the best thing we did on our vacation. Goong was really patient and helpful and so nice to the children and all our daughters just loved her from the beginning. She speaks good English, so the communication was also easy.
The surroundings was authentic Thai and the atmosphere warm and welcoming.
We cannot thank you enough for this great experience.

"Amazing experience with such a wonderful chef!"
From start to finish, this class was amazing. Our chef/instructor, Nam, took us to the market to pick out some of our ingredients and she was SO sweet and knowledgeable and was able to teach us so many interesting things about the local foods. After that, she helped us prepare 4 amazing dishes. I couldn’t recommend this class more for anyone who is interested in eating/cooking delicious authentic Thai cuisine.

"Real Thai cooking begins here!"
Angsana and her mother put on an excellent cooking class! This is where you'll learn the secrets to traditional Thai cooking along with the shortcuts most modern restaurants take. Every dish here will be done the traditional way, by hand, from scratch. We've been cooking Thai food for years, but this experience changed our entire approach. I highly recommend this class!

My daughters and I attended the cooking class ran by Naan and Kung- they were the perfect hosts really friendly and engaging with great sense of humour. We laughed a lot 😊😊
The shopping and cooking were really informative we were all shocked at how wonderful our dishes turned out to be. The house and all the cooking equipment was spotlessly clean and they both spoke good English which was a bonus. We opted to do this on our last day and I have to say it was the BEST day - THANK YOU to both of you Patsy Ellie and Lydia xxx

"Awesome experience with the nicest hosts"
This was by far the best cooking experience we’ve ever had (and we’ve had a few)! The two chefs were extremely nice, funny and professional. It felt like spending a wonderful cooking day with friends. The food we prepared was over the moon, I had the best soup of all time. If you’re in any doubt, which of the hundreds courses to chose in Bangkok - chose them!
Nam and Gung - thank you very much for this wonderful day we had together!

The class is perfectly organized.
The cooking professor (Phai) was great, very friendly and giving precise information about how to do the recipe.
The visit of the small market is quick but very interesting to understand how some ingredients are done.
I will recommend Somphong Thai Cooking class to all my friends visiting Bangkok.

I chose this cooking class as I wanted to have some flexibility in choosing the dishes I learn to make. There is a list of 4 options for each of the four types of dishes you learn to make: curry, stir fry, salad or soup, noodle dish or rice dish.
You also learn how to make sticky coconut rice mango dish. All recipes were fantastic. Penang curry was outstanding, followed by Tom som, pad Thai and coconut sticky rice.
It’s also easy to get to.

"Lustig und lehrreich!"
Meine Tochter (10) und ich hatten einen super Nachmittag mit Pim. Alle Zutaten, Arbeitsschritte wurden uns ausführlich erklärt. Pin macht das auf eine lockere und lustige Art.
Jeder Teilnehmer konnte selbst entscheiden, wie scharf sein Gericht sein soll oder Zutaten weglassen.
Die selbst zubereiteten Gerichte wurden zusammen gegessen.
Im Anschluss haben wir alle Rezepte zum Download bekommen.
Würden es jederzeit wieder machen.

"Delicious food and well organised"
We were seven that joined their class, some vegan and other vegeterians and it was just as good as the people that had mest. The staff members were super nice.
It was also fun to get to choose from different dishes. It was really organised even though not everybody was making the same dish.
The food was delicious, 10/10.
Only down side was that it was a lot of food and some of it went to waste, so maybe you could bring some containers to bring the food back home.
I’ve been to few cooking classes and this is one of the best.

This cooking class is a must when visiting Bangkok. We began class with a trip to the local market where the hosts explained many different aspects of Thai cuisine, ingredients, and technique. Back at the school, there was thorough instruction made easily accessible for skilled cooks or beginners. My favorite part of all was the delicious food we made which included a variety of Thai dishes! This was a great experience and one of my favorite activities we did while in Bangkok.

"We had a wonderful time!"
The four of us had a great cooking experience with Chef Yui who is an excellent and hands-on teacher. She has deep knowledge of Thai cuisine and every step of the experience is well thought-out. The dishes might seem complicated but she is able to explain very clearly how to cook it, and we are able to produce good results even if we're not familiar with Thai cuisine. The cooking school in itself is a welcome respite from the business of Bangkok, and her garden is amazing. We all agree that we had a great experience and it was all worth it.

"Great instructive and interactive experience - delicious food!"
We loved the detailed and passionate explanation by our master-chef! We were able to engage with knives and woks to produce our own individual dishes, each of us having the chance to spice things up to our desired level of enjoyment. We were able to accommodate a few last minute requests and ended up enjoying our self-prepared lunch all together on the second floor! I am most happy to recommend this experience!

Cooking Activity with Aye was just amazing. Trust me - You need to make this great experience when visit bangkok! In the morning you are going to buy all ingredients from a fresh local market. Aye is going to explain you everything about the herbs, spices, vegetables, types of rice and thai food in general. She is the expert in thai food. You will have a lot of fun, good conversation and dishes cooked by yourself like in a gourmet restaurant! The smell and taste was soooo delicious.

"If you like Thai food don’t miss this opportunity"
Highly recommend the Bangkok Thai Cooking Academy. You start out at a wet market far from the tourist area, learn about ingredients, do all your own prep work, cook, and enjoy the fruits of your labor, all under expert guidance. The cost couldn’t be more reasonable!

"Fun and Informative"
Our instructor was great. She was very attentive, very patient, informative and safety conscious. We took a brief tour of the market where we learned about done of the key Thai ingredients. We were issued aprons and given cooking stations. Each student has his/her own wok station. We watched the instructor give a detailed demonstration of how to make the fish, then we went o our stations and made our own dishes. In this five hour glass, we made a yellow curry paste, a stir fry, a yellow curry, and a chicken and shrimp salad. We used the sticky rice which the instructor made in a demonstration for mango and sticky rice. Great class!
