Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

We were only in Chiang Mai for 2 nights in between sleeper trains and hadn't booked anything so this was a real last minute booking! However, I am so glad we found time to fit this in as this has been one of the best things we've done in our time in Thailand. A was so lovely and easy to... More

After reading such good reviews we decided to choose Thai Orchid for our cooking class and I'm so glad we did! The lady teaching us, her name was 'A', was amazing. We started off making the spring rolls and they were so delicious! We then went to the market where A told us all about the Thai fruit and vegetables... More

Going to A&Kong's cookery class was the best thing on our holiday so far. The class is really thorough and well organised. We cooked everything from scratch- starting with spring rolls, then stir fry and curry and finishing with a dessert. The atmosphere was incredible. Before we started cooking our mains, Kong took us to a local market and explained... More

Very friendly and good speaking family who runs this school. Everyone can do this because everything is shown or you can ask help. Loved the visit at the market and.....loved my food!!!!

This is an excellent and well organized class. We have taken other classes that are too overwhelming so you can't remember much. With Kong demonstration followed by hands on experience, we learned much. I can't wait to get home and start cooking Pad Thai and curry dishes.

You NEED to sign up for this cooking class! It was my husband's favorite part of our entire honeymoon (and we did a lot of cool things). We learned to cook spring rolls, cashew chicken, curry, pad thai, mango sticky rice and much more! Also, it was all absolutely delicious! The instructors are so much fun and great teachers. They...

I am so glad I chose Thai Orchid Cookery School for my cooking experience. I was in Chiang Mai for 5 days and the food cooked in this class had been THE BEST Thai food I ever had and I cooked it all myself :) The place itself is super cute, very clean and well organized. The owners are very... More

My wife and I plus two kids (8 and 5) thoroughly enjoyed this visit. It starts with making spring rolls, then a market visit to see what we use for lunch, and then making a curry, pad Thai, and dessert. I made the most delicious spring roll and yellow curry ever.... thanks to the good teacher. The hosts are a... More

With so many courses to choose from, I am glad I chose Thai Orchid Cookery School. A. has a great personality and teaches the secrets of the Thai cuisine like no one. She is funny and she is good at what she does. The classes are not limited to the classroom. In fact, A. takes us to a small market... More

Kong and his wife were absolutely terrific. My husband and I signed up for the cooking class about two weeks before arriving to Chiang Mai. It was our first time taking a cooking class while traveling. Everything was well organized which made it easy for us to truly enjoy the experience. We loved going to the market and tasting the...
