    A very unique, fun activity to do! Thailand is one of my favorite cuisines so this was a lot of fun and our whole family is vegetarian! We were the only people in class so it was very personal. 28 USD/person and we paid online in USD ahead of time. Sounds pricey, but I thought totally worth it. It was the best meal we ate there. We made tom yum soup, massaman curry, and pad thai. He gives you a cooking book to take home and take notes. He was such a cute, nice, friendly instructor teaching us along the way. The alley way is hard to find so just look up the directions but it is right off of Khao San road.

    We were only three students and we had a lot of fun making a number of amazing Thai veggie dishes! Our chef was funny, patient and he went well over the time we had for the class. If you are in Bangkok, love food and are a vegetarian (but you will enjoy it even if you are not a veggie!) go and try this!

    Amazing class with a great selection of dishes. Our teacher Ice was outstanding and considerate. Explained step by step and provided alternative to ingredients if difficult to buy back home. My friend has a nut allergy and was provided alternative recipes for her to use/cook so she was not excluded from any of the cooking. You leave with a very full belly and lots of recipes to try at home. Would 100% recommend to anyone travelling in Bangkok!

    I just had the afternoon class (1500 THB). Very welcoming people. Water and fresh mango was served until the class starts. The instructor I had (Ize) is the best, always smiling making sure everything was clear and asking if I had questions. We made chili paste, tom yam soup, peanut sauce, massaman curry, spring rolls, pumpkin hummus, papaya salad and sticky rice with mango! I am grateful and I highly recommend!

    My partner and I booked a cooking lesson for two hours at May Kaidee's. It was a great lesson: lots of fun and fresh ingredients. We're definitely following up with our "homework", to make our own Thai meals back at home. The teacher had good English and a fun, spirited attitude. We made vegan tom yum sauce and soup, and then vegetarian Pad Thai (skip the eggs for vegan). We learned to make peanut sauce and sticky rice too, and how to use some of the basic ingredients, such as coconut milk, galangal, kaffir lime, rice noodles, and lemon grass. We learned more about cooking wok temperatures for making sauces and dishes. My only wish was to repeat the lesson a few times, to make sure I can make these dishes properly at home.

    My cousin and I went for the half-day Thai cooking class at the May Kaidee's cooking school, in Bangkok. It was one of the best experiences ever! The restaurant is located in a backline off the famous Khao San Street, and the directions on the cooking school's website are very accurate. We didn't have any trouble locating the place. The website also mentions a detailed agenda for the course and they pretty much follow it. The class size for the afternoon session was just 4 people, which ensured adequate attention from the trainer. My cousin and I love Thai food, but had never tried cooking the cuisine earlier and found this to be a perfect introduction to Thai cooking.Right from learning about the most basic ingredients (names of which we hadn't even heard of), to basic building blocks of the main dishes (such as preparing the green chili sauce for green curry and peanut sauce for Pad Thai) to complete dishes such as the mass man curry and tom yam soup, the course covers it all. They handed out a detailed recipe book to each participant right at the beginning, and one only need to take incremental notes when required. The only piece of advice I would give is to go with an empty stomach and lots of appetite, since you will be having a delicious 6 course meal (all prepared by you!).
