We opted for the morning session so it started with a trip to the market. Trip was highly educational, we learned a lot about the different herbs, the different types of rice, etc. The cooking session covers 7 types of dishes. We eat 2 for...More

Two of us only so we could customise what we wanted and make everything vegetarian. I would have liked more step by step instruction but the nature of Laos food is that a lot of it is prepared very quickly! Enjoyed the experience, cost was...More

All the other cooking schools where booked so I went here knowing for the previous reviews it wouldn’t be great. And it live up to that expectations. The chef was more focused on cleaning after his demonstrations rather than helping us food the individual meals....More

Not sure why this place is rated so low. The food was actually good, they show you how to cook it and then you make the entire dish from scratch. You make multiple dishes in a small class and a get a cookbook with recipes...More

I have to say I'm a little baffled by all of the negative reviews on here. I opted to give it a try anyway because it was my last full day in Luang Prabang and the more highly recommended cooking schools were already booked. I'm...More

Following a very yummy dinner at The Three Nagas, we were inspired to learn to cook the local food. The sign for the Tamnak Cooking School is right outside The Three Nagas, so we took the easy way and signed up. SO disappointing. There was...More

We signed up for a shorter class - roughly 2.5 hours - which meant we missed the morning market visit but paid less than advertised at other cooking classes in the town. The fun quotient was there - all the ingredients were experimental and interesting...More
