        Home cooking at its best
        Pick up from the hotel, visit the market where fresh produce was purchased. Frankly, the market would not have otherwise appealed but was outstanding. Bus to Smiley Cook venue (actually the home of the business owner) where we cooked on their verandah! The chef was so friendly, helpful & informative. We cooked the best meal of our holiday (& we’ve had some amazing meals!). Pad si iew Pad kra pow Tom yum soup Penang curry. Each person cooked their own meal. We were a group of 9. The hardest task (not really!) was to choose the 4 dishes. The cook supplied banana coconut for dessert (also delicious). Absolutely recommended!

        Authentic Thai experience
        This was definitely a Five star experience. The chef talked us through the prep and cooking of the food with ease and he was so informative and patient. It was a true Thai experience in the families garden kitchen.

        A must try experience when in Samui
        What a great time. The market was really nice and the house where the class is conducted is beautiful. The entire team made my 6 year feel really comfortable and helped her throughout the cook. The food was amazing much more tasty than any restaurant we have tried so far! Thank you again and wishing you and your family all the best for 2022.

        A highlight of our holiday. Vegetarian friendly!
        A highlight of the holiday for us; highly recommended! Chef Bung and her family were fantastic hosts from start to finish. It was really interesting learning about the produce that we were going to cook with at the local market, and I was really impressed with the dishes that we were able to create (we are not great cooks at home!). Being a vegetarian was no trouble either. Chef Bung had substitute ingredients for every dish. Can't wait to try out our new skills and make authentic Thai food at home!

        Amazing experience
        We really wanted to go to a cooking glass, and so glad we came here! The market tour was really eye-opening, and we learnt a lot. Definitely shows how important it is to see and understand what you are cooking with Our chef Bung was fantastic, talking us through all the recipes with a passion and a smile throughout. This is family-run and I love that, Bung's family are so lovely and welcoming. Food was delicious, including the desert, will definitely be cooking when I get home!

        Local Professionalism and Quality
        The full experience of shopping at the local market and cooking as Thai locals made us realize that cooking is not a duty. It a pure passion. Khun Pung reached us how to use the simple local fresh ingredients and turn them in magical Thai dishes. With a constant smile on her face she managed to give us an unforgettable experience. We cant wait to cook back at home for our friends. Many thanks for this wonderful experience to Smiley Cook.

        Great experience
        We booked this while visiting Samui and it was a great family experience. We are not new to Thailand but Khun Bung taught us a lot of new information about Thai ingredients and cooking. She made the class very relaxed and pleasant and we all felt we had a delicious product at the end!

        Very helpful and fun cooking class
        The tour at the local market was very interesting. Afterwards we prepared green curry (selfmade paste), pad thai and papaya salad. Everything was delicious and we definitely cook it at home again.

        Excellent Quality & Value
        Really enjoyed every aspect from the market visit to ingredient prep to finally putting it all together. The mix of ingredients you prep yourselves versus the ingredients they prep for you is perfect. Just the right mix of hands on without becoming tedious. Would reccomend for any type of group as I can see kids being able to participate to a degree though our group for the day was only couples. Great half-day activity on Samui, but beware, you will leave very full and satisfied.

      Excellent quality tour!
      A small group tour with pick up and drop off service. :-) Smiley Cook has a great sense of humor. He picks you up from your hotel and takes you to the market. He explains all about the local ingredients and the produce. This is where you select four dishes off their menu and he will show you around the market explaining as you go.
      We then drive a short distance to their home where we meet the family and the group is split into two groups of six. Bung was our instructor, Who was really clear with her instruction and had great technique.
      We all cooked our own portion of each dish ( that way you get to choose what kind of heat and flavour you prefer) and altogether sat and enjoyed the beautiful local and traditional Thai dishes.
      Their home is set amongst beautiful trees, which was lovely and cool on a hot balmy night. Thanks again Smiley and Bung for sharing your lovely home and culture. A great experience which I highly recommend.

      My 13 year old daughter and I joined Bung and the team for a cooking class and absolutely loved it! We started with a short tour of the market with a guide through some local produce and then we went back to cook our chosen meals. The set up was great, the process was great fun and the meals were superb! We look forward to trying them when we get home ☺️ Thank you!

      Excellent cookery class.

      The booking process was very smooth and we recieved a WhatsApp as soon as we booked, confirming the pick up time form our hotel.

      On the day of the class we were picked up from our hotel (on time), and then headed to collect the other participants. It was then off to the market, where we were given a tour and explanation of the ingredients needed to cook the dishes we had chosen.

      It was then off to the house/kitchen to prepare and cook the dishes. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the dishes delicious. After eating, we were returned back to our hotel.

      Overall, a very pleasant night. Highly recommended.

      Absolutely fantastic afternoon with this thai cookery school. First stop Chaweng food market where we explored the various stalls of fresh produce.
      2 hours of cooking in a group of 8 was so much fun and eating everything we’d made at the end was delicious. My kids are 19 & 11 and both loved this as much as my husband and I.
      If you love Thai food and cooking this is a perfect afternoon out of the sun!

      We (2 adults) were at this cooking class together with 2 more adults with 2 children. Thanks to the small size of the group we got all attention and time for explanations. First the visit to the local market was very interesting, the cooking class itself was very good: we very much liked the dishes we prepared under the supervision of Bung (the cooking teacher, explaining it all in very good english).

      AMAZING!!!!! It was such a great experience. Picked up from our hotel to meet up with a small group approximately 12. Visited a Thai market where the cook explained various ingredients, some we got to eat and some we didn't. Taken to a private residence, we then got to cook four dishes each. Our group of 6 chose Shrimp Tom Yum soup, Chicken Pad Tah, Chicken Thai Green curry and a Shrimp salad. All the various spices and ingredients were explained to us. Each meal was so delicious and so filling. You were then given a dessert. Fabulous trip, go steady with the spices is my tip.

      Spotlessly clean residence.

      Hotel pickup, air conditioned van taking us to the market with a detailed explanation of fruit, veg, herbs, seafood and chicken used. The group was split with 7 in mine. We decided together, the 4 course menu, to cook and the groups were totally separated. The food for each dish was prepared by the group and cooked once completed. We ate as a group and it all tasted delicious. We were given a dessert, tea and bottled water. It was very organised, techniques were explained, the knowledge was evident. Many staff were running around helping with plates and ingredients. Absolutely recommend this authentic cooking class.

      Excellent introduction to Thai cooking. Professional setup. We were all able to cook our individual meals and eat family at the large table. Great instructors / staff. It was also nice not to worry about transportation.

      Had a wonderful cooking lesson here. Picked up from our Hotel (and could have been dropped back if we had wanted this) we were then taken to the market to see the wonderful food Thailand has on offer before arriving at the House to take part in our lesson. We picked four dishes to cook and Chef was full of information explaining why and how each ingredient was used.

      As there were only two of us it was like a private lesson. We would highly recommend doing this class as an experience whilst in Thailand.

      Keep up the good work.
