The cooking class is highly recommended for families and kids. The Chefs are nice, patient and professional. The cooking stuido is spacious, clean and well-equipped. We had a lot of funs through the hands-on participation. We could choose our own menu for the cooking programme, learn step-by-step to prepare the cookies, thai food and dessert and taste our dishes afterwards.... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful day working with Chef Ying - and her husband, Lionel who was like a highly convivial maitre d' - plus a highly accomplished chef in his own right. The pace was driven by our skills, the food we cooked and then ate, was utterly delicious. These people care passionately about making your experience... More

We've had a great experience at Phuket Cooking Academy. Our teacher, King spoke very good English and was easy to understand. We started the day at the market where she made us try a bunch of fruits, veggies and herbs. Next we went to the school where we ate sticky rice desserts for breakfast and got an overview of the...

We spent a great day at the cooking academy, this school is great for people wanting to actually learn how to cook Thai food, both on the day and once they return home again. We were told all about the ingredients and which ones we could swap them for, if we were unable to get certain spices or veg in... More

I've tasted some of the best Thai food cook from Phuket Cooking Academy. Ying has a few hidden tricks that brings a subtle punch to the spices. I feel I can now open a Thai restaurant with a menu of Mango and Sticky Rice, Papaya Salad, Phad Thai, Duck and Red Curry and a delicious Stir-fry Seafood dish. Highly recommend... More

My daughter and I spent the day with Ying and Lionel learning several Thai recipes. Everything was modified to meet our individual needs including a modified pace and menu. It was our second cooking class and we enjoyed learning many new interesting ingredients, tips, tricks and shortcuts.

Ying and Lionel are fantastic hosts and offered a real insight into the country as well as the delicious food. This place might be off the beaten track but you needn't worry about that as transfers will be arranged and the facilities are excellent (with a picturesque garden too) when you get there. There was a good balance of demonstration... More

We had a fabulous Thai cooking class with Ying and Lionel during our holiday in Phuket in September. We found them to be incredibly helpful - from organising the taxi transfer to catering to my dietary requirements (I cannot eat onions, garlic, wheat or mushrooms so that is no easy feat!). The dishes cooked were amazing and by the end... More
