We have been to cooking classes before and this was our favorite one yet. It was great to receive a book with all the recipes in it, and it will make it easy to reproduce the dishes at home. The explanations of what is usually used in Thai cooking was also helpful and all our food turned out great! There... More

I was looking for an instant cooking school in Patong and got to this one through recommendation from my hotel. I went there by myself and luckily found a nice girl to be my cooking partner but if to be honest this might be better for couples going together. The instructor was both fun and professional although it seemed like... More

My all time favourite cooking school, having been here many times previously and I keep returning with different family and friends. The lessons are always quirky and interesting, including a little song and dance for making the curry pastes. Great place to meet people and fantastic introduction to the basics of Thai cuisine from a well travelled and seasoned Thai... More

This is a cooking school which also serves Thai food. The menu did not seem to be too elaborate but the food was tasty. We ordered the Thai Green curry, Garlic chicken starter and the Vegetarian Pad thai. The grilled Garlic chicken was very succulent and had a distinct taste of black pepper in it (was very delicious). The Green... More

Arrived because we were nearby and reviews on Trip Advisor were good, perhaps their cooking classes are the reason for the high rating ? But restaurant wise, everything is a bit too slow - Ordering food - too slow Receiving the food - too slow Waiting for the bill - too slow While I personally found it frustrating that they... More

I've been traveling Asia for 3 month and done wonderful cooking lessons in every country! This was the worst! We are on a budget so we paid for the mini class just making 2 dishes for 750 baht (which is a lot more expensive compared to what we paid else where) we made our favourite dishes massaman curry and phad...

Dear Sophie I am sad that you didn’t enjoy the class, and I can understand your review based on your feelings. However, to put the record straight for other readers, I would like to precise that you insisted on learning to cook Massaman curry, which is not on our dishes list, and therefore normally not available. We told you that... More

We have been to Pum Thai Restaurant twice in one week in Patong (and expect to go one more time before we leave in two days. The food is incredibly fresh and delicious and reasonably priced. It is one of the little gems that we have found in Patong. It is worth a visit. The chicken in cashew dish is... More

There isn't a massive menu but the food is of very high quality, fresh and quit inspiring. The service was good but were the only people in the restaurant at the time.

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! I signed up - online, while I was in Phuket - for the 4 dish course. The cooking school is very close to the Jung Ceylon mall in Patong. There are several options available on their website, depending on how much you want to learn. I arrived to a very well organized... More
