Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

My husband reluctantly agreed to do a full day cooking class with me, and now he raves about it any time we are asked about the highlights of our trip. The hosts Kong & A are incredibly friendly, organized, and do an excellent job of explaining the steps...and we learned so many cooking & prepping tips! Everything ran so smoothly,... More

Mr Kong was fantastic. Good teacher, funny, not overdoing anything just really nice. For 900 baht you get to make spring rolls, 2 mains and one dessert. Everything is there and they even pick you up and drop you off after. He also takes you to a market to learn about different fruits veggies and spices. A must do for... More

If you are looking for an authentic Thai cooking class then look no further! Thai Orchid Cookery School is the best place to get a lesson! They were so accommodating while I was trying to set up our lessons but giving us multiple dates to choose from and working with our already scheduled plans. On the day of our class... More

A truly wonderful experience! Our hosts were amazing...incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, patient, caring...just the absolute best. This was recommended by my son who enjoyed this experience a year ago. So glad we listened to his advise. We did the half-day course. Prepared four menus items...each turned out to be absolutely delicious. Great day...well worth the money!

Kong and his wife are the most gracious hosts of this fantastic day in Chiang Mai. They pick you up in a very nice, air-conditioned van and usher you to their lovely cooking center. You begin with appetizer preparation (and consumption), then go to a local market! This was so fun. Kong walked us through various vegetable and fruit stands... More

My husband and I attended the 1/2 day class this morning and we could not have had a better experience. Everything from the kindness of Kong and his wife, the transportation to/from the class, the cleanliness of the equipment/ingredients, the efficiency and simplicity of the teaching and the super-informative visit to the market was amazing. I did a lot of... More

On a whim, my wife and I decided to search for a cooking school while visiting Chiang Mai, and it was the best decision we could have made. Based on previous TripAdvisor reviews we elected to sign up for a class with Thai Orchid (eschewing the recommendation from our hotel.) The experience did not disappoint! In fact, it far exceeded...

Attended the half day cooking course with my husband and 6 year old whilst holidaying in Chiang Mai, and had a fantastic time. Kong was our main teacher for the day, with A assisting. Everything was explained clearly, and plenty time taken over showing us the ingredients and methods. Our son clearly couldn't have his own wok station being only... More

Me and my friend visited this cookery school, never had attended a cooking class before. It was fabulous from start to finish. It's authentic with thai customers taught by knowledgeable thai people. We attended the market to collect fresh ingredients and it was so interesting. Well organised and lovely food. Lovely little cook book to take home also. Can't wait... More

This is my first Trip Advisor review ever, just had to share about the great experience that Kong and his wife put together. They are lovely people, and the cooking is done at their home in an intimate environment (doesn't feel touristy). The pace of the day is perfect, not a lot of sitting around. You do just enough cooking... More
