While on Koh Lanta, I went to two cooking classes: one in Saladan, and one on Klong Nin Beach, Roi Thai. Of the two, I recommend Roi Thai. I went on a Friday, when we went to the local market to buy produce, fish, and other products. It was most educational. Our host told us about Thai food in general,... More

I took the lunch course by myself as the rest of the family did not want to join me - and what did they miss! The Chef Akkapak was so nice and fun person, and he told us very good information about the ingredients of Thai kitchen. The course was very well organized (although I had to wait the pick... More

We did not join the cooking class, but we walked by as it was underway in the back of the restaurant and it looked like fun! The area for the lesson looked like one of the best 'local kitchen' we saw during our travels in Thailand - looked genuine but clean and spacious. We only had diiner, they were super... More

We chose the cooking class including a visit to the local market. It started at 4.30pm in the afternoon and we were done cooking at about 9:30pm. Apart from having spent an exciting afternoon and evening, it's also good value for money. The staff was very nice and even picked us up from our hotel, which was about 30 minutes... More

Have been to cooking classes in thailand before. They were ok, but a bit "quickly quickly". This time the cook explained un a los of things very precisely and we spent a very funny and interesting evening. Prepare youself for 5h of cooking lessons, and do small portions... we were really sad not to be able to eat half of... More

This course starts with a trip to Koh Lanta market with the chef to buy produce and learn about the local ingredients which is a worthwhile trip in itself as it's probably the most authentic experience I had on this island. The market location moves every day of the week so if you're lucky, like we were, it will be... More

We booked the evening market class at 1900 thbt each. In the first instance you are apprehensive due to price, but it is totally worth it. We were both collected and taken back to our hotel no issues, and had the pleasure of sharing the evening with a lovely Aussie couple, and a brother/sister from Germany. The class itself was...

After much deliberation over the multitude of cooking classes available here on Koh Lanta we were so glad to have chosen Roi Thai and especially to do the market tour. Akkapak was amazing. Incredibly funny and passionate about food, Thai cooking and maintaining the integrity of traditional Thai cooking methods. Probably the best Thai I've eaten, and I cooked it... More
