    So fun and yummy!
    This was one of the best things I did in Thailand! I am a massive foody and Thai food in particular is one of my favs, so this was such a fun experience. We ate SO MUCH, and the food was so delicious. Mon was so great at making the experience fun and informative. They also have free pick up/drop off which made the whole day seamless. I would definitely recommend this experience!

    A highlight of our trip, fabulous fun day, cooking from scratch
    This is the only cooking class you want to do. Mon is a lively character, that’s sets the atmosphere for a fun day. From the moment we contacted Mon , he communicated all details , provided a variety of dishes to choose to cook. All ingredients fresh and mostly from his garden. Fantastic food, I feel inspired and achieved. Very professional and extremely well organised. Refreshments provided. Water, tea coffee and fruit. Should you wish to indulge even a mojito or beer to purchase , among other options. Mon provided details of the ingredients we were to use and why, along with technique and balance of flavours. Wonderful venue, clean and very comfortable. This package included hotel pick up and drop off , fantastic value all round . Highly recommend 💯

    A great day cooking with Mon!
    We spend a great day cooking and having fun! There are many dishes that you can choose to cook and the outdoor kitchen is neat and well organised. Above all Mon is special, with tons of energy, good mood and even more fun, at the same time always keeping an eye on us and providing guidance. Highly recommended and I would happily do it again!

    Amazing Day Cooking with Mon!
    Wonderful food and so much fun! Mon has such amazing and positive energy. This was one of our family/friends favorite activity! So many dishes to choose from and loved how we could choose the flavors/spice levels. Also very allergy friendly and considerate! (I’m allergic to shellfish)

    The best! 👏🏼
    This class is a must whilst in Koh Lanta! Mon provided us not only with fantastic food but the recipes to continue making not just what we made, but what everyone else chose to make too - which is brilliant because I was really stuck for choice!! He has a great sense of humour, made the whole day great fun, provided refreshments and ways to alter each recipe to your liking. Honestly - we’ve done a variety of cooking courses around the world in the past few years, and this tops it! 👏🏼 thank you Mon and the team. Ps. Be prepared to eat enough food for a day in this one session! And the days following!

This was a fantastic cooking course and a super fun way to spend a day! My 8yo daughter really wanted to join me, and Mon was so good to her - she had a great experience and left feeling excited about cooking! Mon is an excellent teacher and a master at creating a fun and engaging learning environment! We made 3 dishes from scratch, all of which turned out very well! The cookbook is a great resource too, and I can’t wait to try out some of the dishes at home! The setting is lovely and clean, and everything was really well organized. I’d absolutely recommend it!

It was an excellent trip in the Thai cuisine. Mon was extremely educative and entertaining; his English i very good and the organization was virtually perfect. Not only was it a very, very pleasant day but it was very useful, too - I learned a lot of things about spices, other ingredients and the way to cook them properly. All this in a very interactive, relaxed and entertaining way.

Just a great and inspiring experience. Fun and incredibly informative. Mon was born to do this. The kids were enthralled and the adults had a ball. Of course, the food was amazing.
