        Excellent experience- must try!
        This is such a good experience and well planned. Very good to start with the local market Chatchai. It is very interesting to learn a bit more about the food and ingredients😊 The cooking class is fun and interesting and even if you are skilled at cooking and also Thai food- you will without a doubt get a few tips and tricks that you will find useful in future and feel inspired to cook Thai food in future. The Chef and assistants are very helpful and it is easy to comprehend. So absolutely an amazing experience during a stay in Hua Hin.

        Super Fun & learning mad Skills at the same time! From the pick up on you notice that this is full on professional. The tour around the fresh market was fun and really interesting. You‘ll get to know and see and shop all ingredients for your todays menu. After getting all ingredients (or all fresh needed once) you will be transferred to the cooking school which is really pretty. All staff are super friendly and funny. Shortly after arriving we straight started preparing for the first dish. We got to know a lot of tips and stuff about thai Cousine ingredients. Our menu was. Penang Curry Chicken Laab Moo - Pork Salad Pad Thai Ruby red (Water Chestnut and Coconutcream) Everyone in the group got to taste the result of their work. I can only speak for myself and my cooked food but i really enjoyed it! Its was big fun. Sad i didn’t book one or 2 courses more! Thank you!!!!

        Highly recommended to spend a memorable family time
        Had a truly excellent time at this cooking school. We loved the local market where we were explained the vegetables, fish, herbs, sauces, spices and all the other ingredients we would use for our menu. The kitchen is open air in a gorgeous traditional wooden house. All the staff were so lovely and helpful, we felt spoiled. The food was amazingly good, I can’t wait to practice the recipes we learned. Piece of advice: have a very light breakfast as the dishes we prepare are large. Take-away boxes are available if you can’t finish your plate.

        Highly recommend Thai cooking experience.
        Awesome morning at this cooking school. You’re picked at the location where you stay and then they take you to a local market where all ingredients are bought. They take you along a wide variety of food stalls where all sorts of food are sold. There is also a lot of information about different types of food. Very interesting. Then you’re taken to the place where you start cooking. All steps are well explained, which makes cooking look easy. You eat all that you have prepared yourself. The place is really neat and tidy and the people very friendly. In all a very nice experience which I would highly recommend if you’re interested in Thai cooking.

        Takiab Thai Cooking Class
        This was a great opportunity to learn how to prepare some traditional Thai dishes - without too many of the hot chillies which Thai people love. Preaw was an outstanding teacher - patient and thorough in her explanations. I would recommend this class to anyone with an interest in learning to cook some of these tasty dishes!

        Great Day & Very Affordable
        A really fantastic way to spend the day - and great value! We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the food market where we walked around and were told about the food on offer, with samples of fresh coconut cream. The friendly instructors were with us and bought the food that we'd be cooking that day. Back to the cooking school which is open air, but under a roof in the shade, and a lovely house in Hua Hin. Spent a few hours cooking and eating our four courses and were given the recipes and a certificate at the end. We did menu 4, and would happily go back and do the other menus. Everyone is friendly and helpful - we highly recommend this!

        Got to be in your to-do list!
        Loved every bit of it! It was very well organised from start to finish. I appreciate getting that local vibe in the market and the homely feel of the kitchen area. I’ve learned a lot and was happy with the taste of the dishes I’ve made. And on top of that, I got a certificate after finishing the course! Highly recommended.

        Incredible Cooking Course
        This Thai cooking course was truly an incredible experience! I wanted to book my husband and I an experience while we were vacationing in Hua Hin. This was such a fun experience that my husband still talks about it. Beau first took us to the local day market where she showed us ingredients that Thais purchase and use at home. Afterwards, she had our group prep ingredients that we would use in the dishes we were to make. She guided us through each step and thoroughly explained how and why the ingredients were prepared a specific way. She answered any questions we had. She was very organized and the course ran very smoothly. We would highly recommend this cooking course to anyone who wants an extraordinary experience in Hua Hin. Warning: do not eat beforehand. The flavorful food you make will be very filling!

        Great cooking class
        A fun morning. Very well organised - if only I had an army of helpers like this to do all my clearing up and washing up at home! Bo was lovely and explained everything very clearly. The food we made was delicious.

        Excellent value for the money
        Excellent arrangements, really friendly staff, clean environment, everything was very well prepared and results were also delicious. I only wished that we would have had a bit more time on the market, since we rushed through it and there was a lot to see.

      If you love Thai food then this is a ‘must do’ when visiting Hua Hin. Our expectations were surpassed - prompt pick-up from hotel, relaxed & informative wander around the food market and then brilliant cookery tuition in a beautiful setting. Bo and her team cannot be faulted. The organisation is just perfect so you do not feel rushed at all and yet accomplish an awful lot in only a few hours. We loved every minute of it & felt it was superb value for money. FYI you will be told which menu you will be cooking on your chosen day so that if it is not to your liking you can choose a different day & therefore a different menu. We had menu 2 and everything was sublime - we couldn’t believe we had cooked it ourselves!

      So, I attended this class solo because my husband had to work and the other attendees cancelled. It was the BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! If you love Thai food as much as I do, this will be the most rewarding experience for you. You learn the basics, techniques and flavours. The meals I prepared were so tasty and you eat them all, so go hungry! All the Thai meals you’ve made prior to this class will improve! I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to foodies and those who enjoy cooking.

      Amazing experience started with a visit to a local market to buy the ingredients and to discover more about Thai products. Then off to the cooking class which was set in a beautiful, relaxing and clean location. Don’t forget to check the huge koi fishes in the pond!!

      The class was super interesting and the food delicious. You will also receive a brochure with the recap of the recipes and ingredients’ information.

      I absolutely recommend this class if you want to spend a few hours learning more about Thai culture and cooking some of the most popular Thai dishes.

      Got this as a birthday treat for my husband so he can cook me Thai food when we get back home!. Market tour was very good and informative. The cooking was very good and surprised by how quickly it all comes together. We made 4 course in that time. You get a cookbook with further information to help you when you get back home along with a certificate. Well worth the money and by the way, you get to compliment the chef as you eat the delicious food you have just cooked. Lots of fun while cooking in beautiful surroundings.

      Great fun learning how to make various Thai dishes! First off you'll visit the market to see the wide range of fruit, veg, seafood, etc that Thailand has on offer. Your host will take you through the market buying the necessary ingredients for the cooking class. She has a wealth of knowledge on the ingredients used so don't be afraid to ask questions. The market is huge so don't get lost Then you'll leave the market and go to the cooking location. It's a really nice place with great energy. You'll get shown what ingredients to use, how to cut/prepare them and then cook them. Be careful how much chilli you add! After each meal sit down at the table with the other guests and enjoy the dish you just made.
      FYI there are 4 menus to choose from when booking this cooking class, so you can go more than once if you want.

      I took a cooking class here in December 2023. I just chanced into it -- I was walking by the cooking school and ran into it. It was excellent.

      Kreu was very well prepared and very nice. She had prepared all of the ingredients in advance, picked me up from my hotel on her scooter, took me to a local farmer's market. She modeled all of the cooking techniques and patiently answered all of my questions. At one point, my legs were itching because of mosquito bites and she went next door to get me some anti-itch cream.

      I had a great time and learned a lot. Would highly recommend this school!

      We started the day being picked up from near our hotel, then went straight to the wet market to see where all our lovely food which we were about to cook had been bought. We then went to the cookery venue where we were shown how to make (and then enjoy!) 4 Thai dishes with really knowledgeable, friendly and happy staff. The food tasted incredible, and it was an amazing experience!
      I wish we booked to go back!

      My husband and 13 year-old daughter and I had a great time and made a new friend from Holland during this great morning activity. The market trip was educational and so colourful!
      The cooking and eating lesson house is so nice and the huge koi fish are amazing. The food was delicious and we were so proud of what we were taught to make. We were given certificates and a cook book to take home. It’s a fun trip that gives you something to remember your trip for years to come when you get home - bring your appetite!
