If you’re interested in learning a bit more about Thai cookery and how they bring all the amazing flavours together then this cookery class is a must. The guys are absolutely brilliant, we explored the market to understand how Thai people shop and cook, then after choosing four dishes for us all to cook, we headed to the classroom to learn more. A wonderful experience and an even tastier lunch that you’ve cooked yourself, it is brilliant.

This was a really fun way to spend an evening and was a little different to the usual going out to a restaurant to eat.

We were picked up in a spacious air conditioned van and taken to the local Thai market where Mong gave us a fantastic tour of the market and was very informative and super interesting.

We were in a group of 6, 3 couples in total. We decided to pick a dish each and chose the last dish as a group which worked out really well.

We chose Phad Thai, Tom Ka Soup, Massaman Curry and a fried rice dish.

We then were taken back to the Smiley Cook Villa which is a beautiful and quaint little villa with a spacious and well set out cooking and dining area. We were given fresh ginger tea and cold bottled water as soon as we arrived and had chance to get to know our fellow students before getting started with the class.

Mong was a fantastic teacher and very entertaining chef. He took the time to explain everything fully to us and was open to answering any questions we had.

He was also extremely accommodating to dietary requirements of others in the group who were vegetarian/vegan. Also worth pointing out whilst you select 4 dishes as a group, you actually cook your own portion of each to your own liking and taste which Mong helps you with.

After cooking the 4 dishes we then sat down to eat as a group which was nice and then Mong prepared us a lovely dessert. The amount of food is great, you won’t leave with an empty belly for sure (doggy bags are provided if you can’t finish it all! )

Would highly recommended this experience and would definitely do it again if we visit Ko Samui again!

We had a great time and learned so much. The market visit was educational and fun; set-up was very comfortable and efficient; the instruction clear; and the food we made delicious. But, best of all, everyone who helped us was a delight.

AMAZING!!!!! It was such a great experience. Picked up from our hotel to meet up with a small group approximately 12. Visited a Thai market where the cook explained various ingredients, some we got to eat and some we didn't. Taken to a private residence, we then got to cook four dishes each. Our group of 6 chose Shrimp Tom Yum soup, Chicken Pad Tah, Chicken Thai Green curry and a Shrimp salad. All the various spices and ingredients were explained to us. Each meal was so delicious and so filling. You were then given a dessert. Fabulous trip, go steady with the spices is my tip.

Spotlessly clean residence.
