Great day! Oy is a fantastic chef and teacher, very patient and with good humour. Nice trip to the market where she talked us through the ingredients - and local substitute ingredients that we can get in england. good attention to detail.

A must do! Our family of 7 (adults, young and old) had a great time. We picked our items from the menu and biked to the local market to get our groceries. At the market we taste tested vegetables and fruits. Upon returning we prepared the items and went into the next room to cook our meals. Everyone cooks their... More

A group of 4 of us booked in for an afternoon session for this Thai cooking school. We arrived and enjoyed a nice bike ride to the market where we were meant to buy our ingredients for our chosen dishes. We asked Chef Oi about the ingredients but she could not explain anything to us. She bought ready made Thai... More

We saw this place in a travel brochure at our hotel and as we only had 2 days at Koh Phangam and no time (or intention) to do a proper research, we gave it a go. The overall experience wasnt a tragedy - after all we cooked 3 dishes which were edible - but I wouldnt do it again. The... More

Concept is attractive : you select 3 dishes you want to cook per person, you go to a market all together to select products, you learn step by step and can finally taste your own creation. Location was ok and material also. A big disappointment is that the instructor/chef: *didnt make any effort with the English *didnt repeat if something... More

Loved the bike ride and market experience. We were a able to try some new fruits ( and I discover my love for Jackfruit!). We cooked 3 dishes per person, tons of food! Oi was great and gave helpful adaptation suggestions when going home to recreate the fishes without the exact same ingredients available. We did receive our own copies... More

The woman that hosted the cooking school was very nice, but the experience felt rather rushed and it was slightly difficult to understand things given the language barrier. They were kind enough to pick us up from our hotel for free (and dropped us off after!). We took bicycles over to the local market and the chef explained some of... More

We really enjoyed our lesson with Chef Oi, shes lovely! We got to dot he dishes we chose and she had all of the fresh ingredients at the ready. She shows you how easy Thai dishes are to make once you have the fresh ingredients available! We got a copy of the recipes we cooked to take home. At the... More

We had the best afternoon shopping, slicing, dicing, and woking our meals. There were 5 students and we all shared our creations family style. Papaya salad, pad Thai, stir fried rice, four curries and two soups. Highly recommended. We learned some new techniques and about the different types of local veggies, fruits and seafoods. Way too much food for the... More
