After satisfying my craving for a proper burger & fries washed down with a delicious fresh mango shake for lunch I decided to join the $15 cooking class for dinner ( can't go wrong for $15) . The nice thing is you choose your own starter and main course from the menu so pick things you like and plan on... More

If you are looking for a Michelin stared cooking school then give this a miss. After spending hours and days around temples and hearing about centuries of history what a great way to unwind and learn a little about Cambodian ingredients and cooking as well as meeting new people. This is a great 3+ hours where you choose from a... More

You don't really learn anything. The chef explanation are really too succinct and laconic. You're not going to buy anything at the market,you're just gonna storm it like a SWAT team. In and out in 10 minutes! If you want some explanation, stay close to the chef otherwise good luck! The cooking itself is a joke and our chef wasn't... More

I would not recommend this class if your goal is to gain exposure and understanding of Khmer ingredients and cooking (and especially considering the price). If you’re just looking for something to do with a meal included, then you can consider it. The entire class felt very rushed and in turn a bit stressful than relaxing. The most enjoyable part...

My mother-in-law and I went for the 10am cooking class yesterday, and our group was led by a teacher by the name of Savoeun. She's so witty and funny, and very good at organizing all of us (there were 8 in the group) even though many of us were cooking different starters and mains. The 3 hours passed quickly and... More

So you don't really learn much, as the dishes are pretty complex and it's only a 3 hour class! But if you are wanting a fun activity, that gives you an insight to how the Cambodian flavor and style is created it is a great option for you! The class can get super busy, we went on a Friday morning... More

We made a basic Amok and Rice Paper Rolls, was a great experience even with a decent sized group of us doing it. Definitely need to book ahead

Food was good, but never received the recipes as promised despite having asked 3 times (twice in person). Learning to cook the dishes was fun, but if I had known I wouldn't be given the recipes then I wouldn't have gone as I can't make it again at home.

It's the oldest school in SR. You pick what you want to cook. Taken through the market, which was really pathetic because we see stuff for approx 15 minutes but all of this was saved by a well organised cooking class orchestrated by our chef. I cooked 3 dishes and the desert and then we ate it. Too much actually... More
