The stuffed lemongrass with chicken was amazing - bursting with flavour. We also enjoyed the Soop Pak vegetarian dish and the lime lemongrass and ginger lemongrass drinks. The service was very friendly.

We had a fabulous experience at Tamarind’s cooking school. The whole experience was memorable and far exceeded expectations. We cooked delicious local dishes that we will be able to replicate at home. Highly recommended!

Hi Sanfrankate. Sadly, you've missed the transport that takes people from the restaurant to our lakeside cooking school. So it's not really possible to join the class after it has started. It's unfortunate you didn't phone... More
