Really nice lady who runs the cooking class. Takes you to the market and you can choose your vegetables and meat. Really simple and quick dishes which were tasty. Would definitely recommend!

Having done several cooking courses in Asia, I'd say this was the least inspiring. It wasn't bad but it wasn't anything to write home about, especially considering the price. We cooked as a group, nice from one perspective, but having read some of the reviews...More
