Amazing time with Nitin. The market was really interesting and she got us tasting things I thought I never would! She runs her business from her home which is decked out with Akha artefacts. The cooking session was really good and we learnt a lot. Would definitely recommend!

Holy cow, this was awesome. An amazing, funny instructor, market tour with lots of odd tasty samples, and a beautifully organized course that never felt rushed. 10/10 would recommend to everyone I know. :)

AMAZING cooking class! I try to take at least one class whenever I travel but this class really blew everything else out of the water. I wasn’t able to book the morning session, which included a trip to the grocery market, but this far exceeded my expectations. Come hungry! Learned how to make egg rolls, pad Thai, papaya salad, Tom Yum, massaman curry, mango with sticky rice, and the most delicious Akha soup and tomato dipping sauce. There are several dishes in each category to choose from, so you can truly try it all. Our instructor was impeccably organized and the class was hands-on. Could not ask for more!

This was a great experience. We enjoyed touring the market, learning to cook so many dishes, and eating all of our delicious food. It is a LONG day and could probably have been a little shorter, but lots of fun.

Our guide, JJ, was knowledgeable and his instructions were clear when teaching us how to prepare/cook the dishes.

The kitchens was well equipped and clean, and the ingredients were all prepared beforehand.

It was amazing how simple it was to cook/prepare the dishes, ad so many dishes could be prepared within that short time.

I would recommend doing the morning tour as it includes a short trip to the market, where JJ explained the different ingredients used in Thai cooking and tasted some of the produce as well.

This was an absolutely amazing class!!! The instructor is great! She is hilarious and really pushes you to try new things! She definitely is a major part of why this class was so great!! The dishes you make are excellent and you get a cook book with all the recipes to take home! She also is very helpful with giving alternatives you may use if you are not able to find certain ingredients in your home country. Overall an absolutely fabulous experience, I would recommend to anyone who has the time in Chiang Mai!!

I 100% recommend you book Thai and Akha Cooking Class in Chiang Mai. It was such a great experience from pickup from my hotel to drop off. The chef made sure to cater to all dietary restrictions and she always ensured she was engaging the class. I suggest you don't eat before this cooking class as you will be making a number dishes. I definitely will be back when visiting Chiang Mail. The chef also made sure to talk about Akha and Thai culture and differences.

YOU CAN'T VISIT CHIAN MAI AND NOT TAKE THIS COOKING CLASS.

We had a great time cooking familiar Thai dishes e.g. Pad Thai, Tom Yum / Kha, Papaya Salad and yummy Sticky Rice with Coconut. Our cooking teacher made cooking seem so easy for us, Doh was fun, friendly and easy to understand, a wonderful way to spend in Chiang Mai.

Although I called the day before to confirm the pick up, We waited 90 minutes, after another two calls, finally the driver showed up. Another person was picked up even later than us. Sigh! The other 7 people had to wait on us.
And in the middle of the class, the instructor threw an egg in my daughter's wok across the counter, the hot oil splashed out of the wok, burned my daughter's arm with two red marks.
We didn't want to make a scene, so my daughter just went to crab a cold soda from the refrigerator and put on the burn marks. The instruction didn't even stop and come to take a look at her arm!!!!
Class is not bad, but the instruction is missing necessary courtesy and a LITTLE careless!

We worked in an outdoor covered kitchen in teams of two. We were taught to prepare ELEVEN different dishes, and were able to adapt them to our personal tastes as far as spicey heat was concerned. Our teacher was so patient and even managed to take pictures for us along the way!! The evening culminated in a dinner together enjoying all our personal dishes. Prior to leaving we were gifted a cookbook containing all we'd cooked and a green or red curry packet. Highly recommended

This was really fun that my entire family did - including my eight year old daughter - which really helped her try new foods, since she saw and made exactly what was in it. It can be hot in the outdoor classroom, and the teacher was super kind but at times hard to understand - however he made sure all his students were keeping up - including my daughter.

I talked my husband and two children (ages 14 and 17) into doing this and we were not disappointed! We did the afternoon class and were picked up on time and taken to the kitchen. Niti was wonderful! She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful to everyone there. She answered questions and gave us a lot of fun cultural information. Both of my children (girl and boy) enjoyed the experience and my husband could not stop talking about how pleasantly surprised he was. We were absolutely stuffed by the end so don't eat at all before you go! We were given spices and a recipe book at the end and will put them to good use when we get back to the States. We would highly recommend this class to everyone! The price is amazing for all of the things you get and we will cherish the memories! Thank you so much for making our stay in Chiang Mai even more fun!
