Pa was the best cooking teacher we ever had. The cooking school was a wonderfull experience - private classes are the best for conversation about Thai Food and learning to cook. Thank you Pa for your open minded and experienced teaching! We do highly recommend!

I went to a (private) cooking class with Pa today and I have to say it was one of the most authentic and best experiences I have had so far in Thailand. I not only learned how to cook Thai food but also learned a...lot about Thai cuisine and culture. The kitchen is clean and the place is cozy. Pa speaks English perfectly so you understand every step of preparing the meals. Pa and her husband Vellu are incredibly friendly and openminded, they make you feel like a friend. The price is reasonable for what you get. I left fully satisfied, with lots of new knowledge and a smile on my face. If you are visiting Koh Jum, I definitely recommend a cooking class at Rim Tang- thank you!More

This was not our first cooking course in Thailand, but one of the best. Our teacher Pa prepared all very well in her professional kitchen and the lesson was very entertaining. Now we have some more delicious Thai dishes which we can take to our...home country. Thank you Pa. When we come back sometime to Koh Jum, we try some other meals.More

We had a great time following a cooking class at rim tang. Pa is an amazing teacher with many years of experience. She taught us the main ingredients used in typical Thai dishes, but also indicated how one can deviate from that when you want...to replicate but not all ingredients are available back home. Pa took a lot of time for us and besides sharing her extensive cooking knowledge, she informed us about the local community as well, which was a great add on. Of course one of the highlights is to enjoy your own cooked meals😊. We would highly recommend rim tang cooking class and will definitely come back when we are visiting again!

We had a cooking class today with Pa and cooked two dishes (Phat Thai and Massaman Curry). Pa is a really good teacher and explains everything, even provides tips how to get the right ingredients in our country. She showed us how to cut the...vegetables then it was our turn. Each of us had our own pan so we got to explore our own taste. After the first dish we sat down to enjoy our Phat Thai. After that we went on to our second dish. Pa provided package for take away because there was so much food and we got to have our self-made meal for dinner again. We enjoyed our time with Pa and really recommend this place to everyone who is interested in learning how to cook Thai food. General information: - you choose how many dishes you want to cook - you choose which dishes you want to cook from a list (~20/25 are available) - the price depends on the amount of the dishes you want to cook, how many people you are and if all of you want to cook the same dishes or if each of you wants to cook different ones -coffee before starting the class and water is included -we booked one day in advance for a class on the next day -you will receive the recipes for your dishes in EnglishMore

We spent three days on Koh Jum and ate twice at this restaurant. Portions are great, prices are excellent and food is very flavourful. We highly recommend it here. We ate elsewhere for lunch to try other places but returned for supper. The owner speaks...English and is very friendly. It’s an outdoor table setting and very well designed.
