We booked through the phone number on TripAdvisor because the website registration form didn't work. We were picked up on time at our hotel for the short course but wondered where we were going when it seemed we were much further past the website address. We ended up at private residence. We were greated by a very kind woman, Tu,... More

We had a fascinating tour of the food market with Mac, who was an informative guide with a big personality and very entertaining. We then had a great time cooking and eating lots of authentic Thai dishes. The only disappointing thing was that they had run out of printed recipe books and Mac promised to bring them to us in...

On our last day in Krabi we paid to go on the cookery course. The class was so much fun and we made three courses of thai food that tasted amazing. The staff were so friendly and helpful and would go back again in a couple. Definitely recommend to everyone especially those looking for a cultural experience

Then we ate everything and began to make the rest of the food. Cat was our host and her English was pretty good. She... More

One of my favorite activities on my trip. The host chef was awesome and funny. Had lots of fun cooking with him and he gave us great instruction in English. Also, they had a great spread of choices for cooking. I recommend this if you're on the fence.

Such a great night! Instructor took us to a Thai market and showed us the various ingredients we would be working with and explained them. We then walked to the school and began cooking! We were able to choose 4 different things to cook then eat. It was so fun! Kiki was the best cooking instructor we could have asked... More

We had been looking at doing a class for a while and we decided to choose smart cook. It was great. We got picked up straight from our guest house so there was no need to worry about travel. When we arrived you get to select 7 of the many dishes that are on the menu. Even if you select... More

This was one of our best nights in Ao-Nang! We rang in the morning and it seemed they were full up. However they said they had a second school that they would take us to! We were picked up from our Villa (it was pretty hard to find so this was a good start) and promptly were taken to the... More
