The cooking class is held multiple times per day, I attended at 1pm which finished around 4pm. What's cool is that you can pick dishes from the actual menue to cook, not a pre-selection by the restaurant. After having decided what to try we went for a short trip on the market where various local foods were explained and time... More

A must when in Siem Reap. The group atmosphere was great and the cooking instructor was funny,so informative and really helpful. I'm personally not a fan of being in the kitchen,but I'm excited to make those dishes again on my own. Money well spent and so affordable for what you get.

Great class BUT a lot of time waiting around, this is the 4th cooking course I've done but majority of this one was standing around waiting doing nothing because their was sooo many people doing it at the one time in a small room. Would defiantly recommend other courses over this one unfortunately

I would not recommend this cooking school. We have been to several cooking classes throughout Asia, and this was definitely the worst one. The market they take you to is so incredibly crowded you cannot look around at all. The instructor didn't take time to really teach us anything. I'm sure there are better experiences elsewhere.

All in all we enjoyed our time as a group with the cooking school. We did visit the market and it was a bit rushed, not my favorite part. I liked that we all got to cook a different dish and could pick what we really enjoyed. We had so much food to eat at the end with each of... More

Even if I do say so myself! This was a lot of fun. Very fast paced and mainly chopping skills but I thoroughly enjoyed it and ended up with one of the best meals I'd had in Cambodia.

Our teacher is a Cambodian speaking good English and most importantly is one with highly professional attitude. She had one family member passing away just within a couple weeks ago but managed to offer the four of us greatly autonomous and fun cooking-learning experiences. Touring is not only visiting and photo taking. It's about learning, experiencing and even feeling the... More

My wife and I were the only people in our class. We started by choosing from a fairly large list of starters and mains. Then we went to the market. Our teacher pointed out some ingredients that would be in our dish and also picked up a few ingredients for the dessert. She informed us that the restaurant does its... More

Our group of 6 took part in the lunchtime cooking class - we booked in advanced easily by popping in to the restaurant the night before. I've been to several cooking classes in Siem Reap, and this one was hit and miss in comparison. I appreciated the fact that not all members of the group would have to cook the... More
