    A must do experience
    Amazing cooking class! I learned so much about Thai cuisine and had the best time preparing the meals and asking the staff questions. I totally would recommend to anyone who is thinking about a cooking class!

    The best cooking class you can have in Thaïland
    I was very satisfied with the Thai cooking lesson, it couldn't have been better. Phad Thai and Tom Yum were much better than what I ate the day before. VJ gave us many other useful tips about cooking. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    Thai cooking so much fun
    We enjoyed the market visit and cooking class so much. We had been to Thailand for many times but still haven’t tried some of the fruit yet. We can try something new this time! Thank you GiGi’s arrangement of promoting the fruit! Vj ‘s class was easy to follow step and step. We could learn, cook and taste the dishes made by ourselves. No failure and the taste was so yum! We will definitely share this experience to our friends when they come to Phuket! Thank you Vj and the team!

    Great for vegetarians!
    We were a bit overwhelmed with selection when it came to cooking classes in Phuket, so decided to go with the most reviewed one and it lived up to expectations. Lovely team, great market tour, and the cooking was so much fun. Catered really well to us as vegetarians too.

    Amazing and informative!
    Our teacher explained to us perfectly and clearly each step to make each dish. We really enjoyed making each one and were given plenty of time to eat and chat with others around the table. An amazing experience :)

    Thai cooking mad fun easy and yummy
    Taken 16 October 2023 Phuket Thai Cooking Class by VJ Collected from hotel, transfer direct to small clean market location. Immediately into tasting of local fruits before a market tour where the host detail how the by their produce each day and what to look for when selecting items. Following this there was time to purchase items for personal use. Back in the van on to the cooking class located in airconditioned comfort and western toilets located on site. Four courses were cooked with the theme. 1. Sit down to prepare and be advise on ingredients 2. Move to own person cook station and be talked through the cooking process real time. 3. Return to table to enjoy the fruits of your labour with water and or soft drinks. This process was on repeat for the first three courses: 1 Tom Yum Soup 2. Pad Thai with chicken or prawns - your choice 3. Curry, red or green, chicken or prawns As we stepped through that process, we periodically moved to preparing and cooking desert. Sticky mango rice. The flow of the day was relaxed and enjoyable. Takes about 3-4 hours but goes so fast. Serving sizes are more than enough, I was unable to eat it all and I am a big fella. Made the prep and cooking process so easy. I was certainly happy with the flavours of the dishes I cooked, and it showed me just how quick and easy Thai cooking is. On completion you make a request via whatsapp and you are then provided with all 1. ingredient lists 2 Step by step how to for each recipe 3. Pictures of all the sauces for reference to buy when home. 4. Intro pack 5. Additional recipes not cooked on the day. Staff were very friendly, funny, engaging, patient and helpful. Is it worth it 10/10 Yes. Would I go again with a different menu 10/10 Yes. Would I recommend to friends and family 10/10 Yes.

Hubby and I did this class.
It was a lovely start to visit the markets and taste lots of different fruits. It would have been nice to watch the choice of the ingredients they bought there to use but was a nice beginning to the class.

The class was informative VJ was well spoken and interactive with the group during the class.

We made a number of dishes that were all extra tasty I especially enjoyed the mango sticky rice 🤤 hubby loved the tom yum soup. We both can’t wait to make the pad Thai for the family 🍜

We had a really good experience!
The driver picked us on time in a clean and comfortable vehicle. We got to the market and the girls explained us about the ingredients, was very interesting. Then we got to the place where we did the cooking class. The place was very organized and clean. We had a great time with the staff, the explained everything to details, and let us do the food alone which was delicious.
We really recommend this cooking class!
