Cooking class of 7 people, we each chose 3 dishes to cook. Then came the feast. Highlights - the entertainment from the head chef, great fun, sharing experience with others, green chick curry our favourite . A must do when in Patong.

Great 3 hours spent with the whole family cooking some of our favorite Thai dishes. Great tuition with fab head chef making the whole experience a lot of fun. Awesome food at the end too !! Great way to lure some of the culture through appreciating the food.

By far the highlight of our trip to Phuket! I felt so bad rescheduling our class twice but they were very accommodating and still let us take the class. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and very kind. The other staff were very helpful and made us feel very welcomed. We were able to cook 4 different dishes and they gave... More

My fiancée and I did the Little Wok class (4 course) and was lucky enough to have a small group (another two couples with us doing the Little Shoe). After the three courses we cooked, Faith our instructor, took us to the local marketplace and showed us lots before heading back to cook our 4th dish (dessert!!). It was just... More

We took part in the mini me class in the evening at Pums Patong cooking school! 700 baht for 45 mins, you learnt two dishes however in other cooking schools in Thailand it was less than double that amount for a full day with a lot more teaching involved. It was a good experience but wouldn't do it again for... More

The facilities are professionally thought through : the founder Pum (we didn't meet her) was educated in UK and owns a chain of restaurants throughout Thailand as well as UK and France. So besides being able to pound spices, fry dishes individually there were air conditioned rooms where we could sit down to listen to the course leader. First we... More

I don't cook,but now I know how to cook four dishes quickly and easily that even someone who boils eggs for 40 minutes can feel like a kitchen wiz. Such a fun class and amazed with how easy and at home I felt in the first few minutes of starting the class. Highly recommended

The class was fantastic! We wish we had done this on our first night rather than our last. Our instructors taught us not only about cooking but also some cultural tips and meanings of words to assist us when reading other menus. There were only 8 people in our group and the class size was perfect. I would encourage anyone... More
