Definitely worth going! The food was amazing! The staff was great and responsive and helped without doing the cooking for you. If you have left over food (which we did--it ends up being a lot of food) they pack it up for you. I was impressed by the professionalism and organization. Thanks for a great time!

We went as two couples and thought it was great. You mix and combine ingredients, learning as you go different nuances and adding your own touch - chilli hotness really. You then cook and eat. Simple but effective. Thank you for a lovely time

Absolutely brilliant! My husband and I love cooking and Thai food, and really enjoyed this course today! We now understand why our attempts at Thai cooking never match up - learnt so much from our teacher today such as using the coriander bottom stems for flavour, and just use the leaves for garnish, quantities, galangal can't be substituted successfully with...

My husband and I booked the Monday afternoon menu and were once again, not disappointed. The facilities are the best of all the cooking schools we have been in over Asia. The teaching is thorough and comical. The assistant staff are brilliant too! We have recommended this school to everyone and look forward to learning more on our next visit... More

My girlfriend and I booked the Wednesday course which consisted of making green chicken curry, coconut chicken soup and pad Thai. We were made to feel comfortable straight away it was fascinating listening to the the chefs experiences and life. The cooking course taught me I was cooking Thai food completely wrong and I could tast the difference. The food... More

My husband and I booked into the Thai cooking classes for an experience. It's an experience we will never forget and we will take away many memories but most importantly Thai cooking skills. The Head Chef was fantastic and took her time to explain things as we went along learning recipe after recipe. We went on a Monday night and... More

This is a must-do in Koh Samui if you want to try making some really authentic Thai food. I have been to Samui probably more than 10 times and food has been a hit and miss. Nothing really stood out until I tried cooking it myself at SITCA. Costing about USD50 per pax, the 3 hour class (4 students) was... More

This afternoon my family of four (kids 13/11) booked the dinner menu at the SITCA. From the moment we arrived, Roongfa made us feel right at home. We had delicious butterfly pea drinks and our stations all set up. We were lucky enough to make a meal based on Panang curry. We made curry paste in a mortar and pestle,... More

We had a wonderful class yesterday and learned all about Thai cooking, ingredients, flavours and why they use each ingredient. It was well laid out and very organised. I would highly recommend it!
