My niece and I attended The Thai Experience this week and we really enjoyed the night. We were collected and returned to our hotel. We had loads to eat, plenty to drink and enjoyed the little bit of hands on with mixing a cocktail and making a sauce. This ‘experience’ is well suited to people who are happy to mix with fellow travelers and chat easily with people you don’t know. At our end of the table we enjoyed the company of couples from Hungary, the Netherlands and Melbourne. It’s a great concept and a fun night out.

The missus booked us into this night out on the strength of the strong Tripadvisor rating - how glad I was that the event lived up to its name. We met lots of interesting people from all over the world, the cocktails were delicious, the cocktail class was very informative - and the food was quite heavenly - would seriously go back given half a chance - what a great concept and wonderfully attentive staff.

We had a lot of fun at this event. It is for adults only as the drinks are free flowing. From the moment we stepped in the door, we were greeted with smiles and jokes. Given a push pin to attach to the big world map - nice touch to show where most of the customers came from. Only 12 people per evening so it is just the right size for everyone to get to know each other. We met people from UK, Sweden, Russia, Chicago and a couple of locals. Started with 3 different cocktails, picked our favorite and learned how to make them. We also learned to make the basic sauce for most of Thai cooking but after that we just relaxed and ate the different types of dishes that were presented. I liked not having to cook but learning about the dishes and eating. Wow, there was so many different items to eat. They were also accommodating to the different likes/dislikes/allergies. Joe and Richard were our host and they were funny and knowledgeable. Everyone was laughing and having fun throughout the evening. Would definitely recommend it.

We stayed on Koh Samui for 5.5 weeks in January/February 2018. We did the Thai Experience at the end of our first week. It was such a perfect way to get to know the food, culture, customs and island. We used much of the knowledge we gained at The Thai Experience on the rest of our trip.

But more than just what we learned....we had SOOOOOOOO much fun! The entire evening is a blast, with great hosts and great guests. It was funny, the food was phenomenal, and the alcohol was flowing. This was one of my favourite nights of our entire vacation.
