Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Thai Akha Kitchen is run by Akha people who were born and raised in Thailand. We love Thai food just as much as you! Give us a chance to tell you our story. Our small culture will sooner or later cease to exist and will become forgotten, so this is our chance to pass down our traditions and cooking styles to the world in hope that at least some parts of it will live through people who continue to use our techniques. Akha Food is totally different from Thai Food and is much healthier and fresher. Akha people have a saying: “There are only three things in jungle that you can’t eat, and nobody knows what they are”. In other words, we haven’t found anything that’s not edible yet!

I really wanted to add to my cooking skills. JJ was great. Super organized, very clean and a cool vibe.

I loved the option of only doing the cooking and skipping the produce selection. Spent more time learning the skills, and it was great for just the evening time. Lots of dishes were completed in an efficient sequence. The time flew by! Everything was delicious and so fresh. The chef accommodated some of my dietary restrictions without problems. The only suggestion I would make to the instructor is to be more careful with sampling guests dishes, as there was some cross contamination as well as finger licking which made me a bit uncomfortable. Overall, I would highly recommend this class!

Teacher is really patient to explain everything and coach us well. We are surprised we really can cook something delicious. May I recommend you to bring out all your family or beloved here.

A highlight in Chiangmai- inside the city but offers pickup and drop off to hotel or night market.

Came with a friend, the class had 12 people total but was still a very hands on and personal experience. Very friendly staff, who want everyone to have fun and laugh. (Spoiled with a staff member who does all the dishes while you continue to eat and cook!)
You get to cook 11 dishes and choose what you would like to cook from each section, there is SO much food- you will definitely have more than enough to eat.

Would highly recommend this to anyone travelling to Chiangmai!
