My Partner and I visited Joy as part of a yoga retreat at Baan Talaay. Joy and her team are fantastic. It was the perfect level of interaction. We all had our own setups, we prepped, we cooked, we are, and even had some beers. Joy is clearly passionate about what she does, and it shows. Only of the World had more people like Joy!

It was maybe on of the best experiences we made in koh tao so far! Joy is superfriendly and welcoming. We cooked panang, pad thai and spring rolls and everything tasted absoluty amazing, even better than at the street kitchens here! Also the house with its amazing view is totaly worth to go there!

Joy is a great teacher and the food was absolutely delicious. She gives useful tips on how to recreate the autenthity of the dishes back in Europe. It was a pleasure to cook with her and even novice cooks will have a great time! We highly recommend it and look forward to taking a class with her when we revisit Koh Tao.

I love cooking classes, I try to squeeze one in wherever I travel. This class has been one of the best I've ever had. Everything is just perfect:

+Great location on a big rooftop with lots of shade so you don't get burnt
+Friendly staff! Joy and Alf as well as the support staff were friendly and really helpful
+ The dishes were very tasty (Spring rolls, Masaman curry & Tom Kha Gai) and every step was explained in detail.

What a lovely lady Joy is. She welcomed us into her lovely home with open arms.
Fortunately for us the other couples cancelled and we ended up with Joy to ourselves. We cooked some amazing dishes all while learning about Thai culture and about Joy herself and her interesting life story so far.
The setting is lovely overlooking the bay and there's just not a bad thing to say.

The only thing she needs is a better parking place for our mopeds haha.
Thanks for a lovely afternoon Joy it was great. Take care
