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.
Very well organised, clear instructions. Everything was well set up and easy for us to follow. It was a fun thing to do on vacation with my mum and teenager! Highly recommend.

First of all, thank you so much for Jay!! I am highly recommended Siamese cookery if you want to create some memorable journey in ur trip.

Highly recommend this cooking class!! Instructor was extremely knowledgeable and patient with us, the ingredients were fresh from their garden, the kitchen was clean and well stocked. Fun, private class with a good amount of food and since the class takes about 2 hours, you’ll still have time for sightseeing or doing something at your leisure after the class.

We had a great class with some friends visiting from the US. There were 6 of us total, and Too did a wonderful job showing us the market and helping us prepare amazing meals.
I have a gluten allergy and they provided accommodations without any issues. I did bring my own gf fish, soy, and oyster sauce in case; however, their fish sauce was safe and that was the only sauce we used for our class.
I really enjoyed the market tour. I have done other cooking classes with market tour and found that this one was just the right amount for a cooking class. It's not a very large market, but your cook takes you around and tells you about the spices and ingredients used in Thai cooking without feeling overwhelmed or lost. 100% recommend and I will be going back.

"Informative, entertaining, delicious and mazing!"
Our family of four attended the cooking class to learn how to cook Thai food. We love the staff and the main teacher, Fai. Our 14 years old son was nervous but her good sense of humor and attentiveness put him at ease and he had a great time! We also celebrated our daughter’s sweet 16th Birthday. The nice touch with the cake at the end was wonderful! Thank you Fai and staff for a great time, delicious food, and informative recipes! Last but not least, thank you for making my daughter’s 16th sweet Birthday memorable!

This is one of the best cooking classes you can take from a professional cooks oppinion in all of Bangkok if not Thailand. let me start by saying you can take a cooking classes from these very experienced Chefs by visiting either the website, the Facebook page, or mobile app known as "Cookly". more then your average home cooking class that you normally find. I more then reccomend this to anyone from home cooks to seasoned professionals. you will take more then you could imagine from this. The head chef Nou (forgive me if spelt wrong) is a very very talented lady with a wealth of knowledge to share and that is a huge understatement. From international cusine to authentic traditional thai they show extreme professionalism and technique. above all the passion and care is bewildering. as you can see from the pictures available on the Facebook page the art and passion that goes into the desserts as well as the food is mind blowing. everything you see is artisanally hand crafted which is hard to belive due to the perfection. The images do not do it justice as a simple taste will show you more then what meets the eye even with the immaculate presentation. Some of the top fine dining locations could not compare. from simply a few hours I left with more knowledge and respect for what they do In the thai pastry world as well as the traditional cooking style then I could imagine. I am flabbergasted at the fact this place is not world renown. If you want to try some of the best desserts Thailand can offer seak out the location where this chef resides. A key aspect to learning is the language barrier and it was non existent here with very fluent English skills you will learn very well. I felt at home in their kitchen and will be going back ASAP. I cannot thank this amazing couple enough for their time and they deserve as many great reviews as the world can offer. I will be returning for a second class to learn as much as I can before I leave Thailand. Khap Kuhn Krab.

"Great experience with fun instructor"
My friend and I wanted a diffrent trip than usual sightseeing hence this cooking class falls into one of our itinerary. It was a memorable activity to both of us as for her, she hardly cook buy enjoyed eating her own cooking so much and for myself, I got to learn dishes to be cooked for my kids (spicy-free). We love the class that we can choose our favourite dishes vs other academy that only offer what they wanted to teach. the only setback we experience is seeing other students have many leftover of the food cooked. Would strongly recommend academy to advise student to bring along container to take away their food. We packed our food and have it as dinner too in our hostel. Last advice: DO NOT WASTE FOOD, many people is STARVING in another part of the world. Again, thanks for the experience and see you again LEK... :)

"Best cooking class in Bangkok"
Cooking with Mimi was fantastic! It was easy to meet her at the BTS station, after she took us by car to the local market and explained us all the different veggies and answered all our questions. We went by car to her house, it’s a very lovely and quiet place, we got to know her mother as well( such a lovely lady) We cooked 4 dishes, the working stations are clean and well organized, Mimi loves her job and you can tell! She will answer all the questions with a big smile!
I can totally recommend this cooking class!!!!
Thank you Mimi!!!

"Dream come true cooking class - in Thailand"
Superb insight into Thai quisine, culture and cooking. From beginning to end a professional outfit delivering top quality instruction, food and memories - I can't wait to put the knowledge learned here into practice at home.
When looking around at which course to choose there are hundreds to choose from so we picked one based on the menu that contained the foods we've been enjoying the most whilst we've been in Thailand: Paneng and Pad Thai - we also got two extra dishes of Papaya salad and a banana desert.
We found our way to the meeting point where we were met by a friendly member of the Sompong team who greeted me by name and safely loaded us and the rest of the group into his SUV for the two minute ride around the corner to the cookery school. Upon arrival the professionalism continued; we were provided with sandles to wear in the kitchen, an apron, cloth to wipe our hands, a cook-booklet and a bottle of water.
We then had a full briefing on the session and layout of the class, from the most enthusiastic and friendly assistant. She then proceeded onto the initial content of the session. As we were the afternoon group the morning market was over so we were given a show and tell presentation on a range of typically Thai ingredients that we might come to use. This was brilliant for me and gave a real insight into the pallette of scents and flavours used in all of the dishes I've eaten in my travels.
We were then given some great instruction in four fantastic Thai dishes (I shall omit the detail - you can learn for yourself when you visit)
The kitchen was staffed with a team of assistants to seamlessly transfer between dishes and stages. The assistants helped remind us of timings when it was our turn to imitate.
The final spread was something to behold (see pictures) and was super filling. We took away a supper in boxes to enjoy once we're able to eat some more!

So much fun learning about thai ingredients and how they contribute to those signature delicious thai flavors! I recommend anyone who visits Bangkok and likes to eat, to take this class! Just a small piece of advice (as I know I would tell my parents this) some things are done on the floor, so if you have problems getting up and down, I'd suggest just letting them know. I'm beyond positive they will accommodate you, but just a heads up :) Such wonderful, knowledgeable, funny people!

"Great Class - Fun & Informative"
This was my first Thai Cooking Class... and what fun we had. Started out with a market tour which was very informative on which ingredients to buy and what were some of the different vegetables that I had not seen before.
Then it was off to cook... Chef was informative and fun. Mixing proper lesson with history of Thai food and cooking.
Would def come back again with visitors.

Andy is the nicest guy! I learned a lot, the class was simply amazing. I can strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to have a lifetime souvenir in form of cooking skills! The dishes were very delicious and cooking everything from scratch was fascinating. After doing groceries at the local market we cooked and tried the dishes. The evening class is especially fun because you can sit outside while you eat and watch the temple. After we went out for drinks with people from my hostel. Personally I had the time of my life and can only recommend the class with Andy!

"Best cooking class ever"
I’m so glad I chose this cooking class from Cookly. We were picked up by the instructor and her husband from the bearing BTS station right on time. They asked us if we wanted to go to the morning market as it was optional and we definitely wanted to go! They brought us around to show us where the local Thai people shopped; the veggie, seafood, meat sections. We really enjoyed it. Next stop was her humble abode! It was very cute place and very inviting! We both got to do 4 dishes each which was honestly a bit too much food. We brought back more than 1/2 back to our Airbnb. We made, pad Thai with shrimp, stir fried flat noodles with pork ( the pork was so flavorful! She said she marinated overnight for us), shrimp with glass noodle salad with pork, panang curry with shrimp, basil pork and Tom yum soup with shrimp. We legit made the curry from scratch using a mortar and pestle to crush the cumin, coriander and white pepper corns and red chili. All in all, I honestly highly recommend it. It’s a very fun activity with your loved one and the instructor was amazing. We’ve done cooking classes in Vietnam as well and this one was so much more personal. I would recommend it to anyone who comes to Bangkok!

"Culture and Passion"
My husband and I spent a fantastic time at The Market Experience learning how to cook authentic Thai food with a modern twist. The class started with the instructor, Alyssa, taking us around the flower market and giving us lots of information on the various ingredients. We then learn how to make Mieng Kam, Som Tum, pad Thai and red curry. Honestly, I didn’t realise it was so easy to make these dishes!
The location is really convenient, taking the BTS and the ferry down the river which takes you straight to the flower market.

A must do cooking class, well organized, clean, super enjoyable, tasty food and great hints on preparing and cooking at home. We also received a cookbook to take home.

If a slouch like me could make an amazing meal, so can you! I went solo and really had a great time, exploring a fantastic market, learning how to choose the best ingredients, and how to prepare each of the four dishes.

We had a nice quick tour of the marketplace where we got to familiarise ourselves with the ingredients that we would be using. The actual groceries were prepared for us so we didn’t waste any time buying the necessary ingredients. We then headed to the kitchens where we spent the next 4 hours making 5 incredibly delicious dishes of pad thai, tom yum, chicken larb, green curry, and mango sticky rice. We got to chop and prepare each meal's ingredients and then cook them over a wok before sitting down to eat our creations fresh and hot. The chef was amazing! The food was so authentic tasting and we each got a recipe book to take home at the end. Just be wary that the kitchen does get a bit crowded and hot and spicy when there are 10 woks frying off all at once in a small confined area!

The chef is so nice and makes the class really warm and welcoming, and the food was phenomenal!!! Also very accommodating, our class had one vegetarian, and people who didn't like spicy, we could customize the recipes to our preference. I had such a great time, it truly was my favorite thing I did on my trip to Thailand. If I ever find myself in Bangkok again, I will definitely be coming back. I would highly recommend this class!!

"Thai food, culture and fun!!!"
This was the third class I have done, as I do one whenever visiting my son in Bangkok. Not only is it a wonderful learning experience with a fabulous teacher and her support team, it is also a lot of fun. The food you cook is amazing and easily duplicated once you are home, plus you learn tips to cook like a chef and learn about Thai culture. I will continue to take classes during future trips here. Thanks for a super fun time, once again. I highly recommend it.
