We booked through an Itison deal for a 2 course cooking class and were not disappointed.

The evening started with a brief introduction to Thai culture and geography from Daria which set the scene well and meant you actually understood a bit about what you were doing and the ingredients you were using prior to the main event.

Chef Uma ably demonstrated both the Tom Yum Soup and Pad Thai recipes before we were unleashed on our woks. Even while we were cooking under her watchful eye it was impossible to go wrong.

All ingredients came pre prepared and it really was as straightforward as it possibly could be to prepare our own dishes.

The quality of the ingredients and instruction really shone through as I'm not what you'd call a cook and the dishes both tasted fantastic.

Thanks to all involved for a brilliant evening. The two hours flew past and we look forward to returning to use the plethora of vouchers we received in our goody bags at the end of the night.

Thank you.

Sawadee kha Alan M,

Thank you for the fantastic review! I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed our cooking school hosted by the amazing Daria and Chef Uma. Tom Yum Soup and Phad Thai are Thai food classics, I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed learning how to make them from scratch. Have you tried to make them at home yet? Thank you so much for joining us and we can't wait to see you again soon at Thaikhun.

Great food, plenty of choice! I am restricted with my diet due to an issue with yeast or yeast extract, limiting my choices from the menu. No such problem here! Good service, attentive staff, food arrived freshly cooked to order and was very tasty. As recommended we shared our rice and noodles giving an added dimension to the meal. Good value for money, and a relaxed, comfortable setting.

Thank you so much for leaving us such a great review, we hope to see you again very soon at Thaikhun.

Enjoyed my visit to Thaikhun. I lived in Thailand for a year and love Thai food. I have been to a few Thai restaurants and this is definitely the most authentic tasting Thai food I've had since moving home. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to our dietary needs (vegan). Would definitely go again.

Sawadee kha TomAmbrose,

Thank you for the fantastic review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to Thaikhun, especially after living in Thailand for a year so you know first hand how great the food is over there! It's always such a great feeling when people tell us that they think our food is authentic, we really appreciate it. I understand how frustrating it is being vegan and dining out as not many places offer very many vegan options on their menu, but at Thaikhun all of our vegetarian options are actually totally vegan too! Thank you for dining with us and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
