Booked this through buffalo tours. It was such a great experience and I would recommend anyone who wants an informative and fun cooking class to come here. The head chef explained everything so well. We went through preparation and cooking techniques and she taught me so much. I thought I was a good cook before but there were so many... More

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Our group of 10 plus a single traveller from Italy we "adopted" for the day .. had a very educational and tasty day in a professional kitchen. The food was freshly prepared. But we are left to make the remaining finishes that required us to learn techniques specific to Thai meals. We could not... More

Thoroughly recommended. We arrived at 4:00 and there were 2 of us only with 1 instructor. She was entertaining and funny we were instructed in a 3 course meal, spring rolls, then a Thai prawn salad followed by a Masssman curry. The proof was in the eating !!! Now to replicate in rainy Donegal/Widnes

This is the second time we have cooked here. Amazing authentic Thai cooking, the staff is great and chef is not only skilled but funny. On our last visit it was raining so we decided to do an evening cooking class. Very interesting, meet other people from other countries. Cooked very tasty food and all sit at the end and... More

We hadn't planned to do a cooking class in Chaweng, but when the rain set in we needed an alternate plan. Our hotel was just up the road from this location and the staff at our hotel highly recommended it. We did the evening cooking class and made pad Thai, green Thai curry, and a curry soup. I am probably... More

I recently attended a cooking class at SITCA and had the best experience. We made three dishes, Phad Thai, Tom Kha Gai, and green curry with chicken. Everything was so delicious and better than I have ever had at a restaurant in the states. Chef Roong was wonderful and explained the dishes throughly. She told us what each ingredient was,... More

I would like to thank our teacher Roong for a fabulous day making Choo chee seafood curry amongst other culinary delights. The three hour course is very hands on including preparing, cooking and eating. If you're in Koh Samui you'd be crazy not to take the opportunity to partake in this experience. Thank you Roong.

My wife and I attended the Tuesday morning glass where we made Green Chicken Curry, a glass noodle salad and a sweet and sour dish. I learnt so much about the ingredients and how to use them to get the best flavours in your dish. We love Thai food and the dishes we created were literally the best Thai food... More
