What a lovely experience. The restaurant is in the old Governors Residence which itself is a lovely old building with hundred of years old Banyan trees. The Chef's Tasting Menu is worth every penny. Absolutely out of this world!

Unfortunately we didn't do cooking classes - we were there for an evening meal only. The setting is beautiful and Thai food amazing, you can't go wrong with classes.
