Overview

At Basil Cookery School, you get to do all the cooking. Don’t worry, even if you have never done a cooking class before, we make Thai cooking easy.Unlike other cookery schools that held 10-20 people per one class we limit our class to only 1-6 people so you can get the plenty of time learning with us. Ask any question you want while we're enjoy cooking together. As we take you step by step through the recipes, our class will give you confidence and we guarantee that you will be able to eat your very first delicious Thai dish. We pride ourselves on quality, from the freshest ingredients, high quality cooking utensils, clean and clear kitchens, to our customer service.

Fun cooking course, easy and effective. Nice teachers and service. The best about it is that you can choose to prepare your preferred dishes (6!!) and get a recipe book.

The teacher was so lovely, there was only 3 of us- all friends. The dishes were delicious. Going to the market before cooking and learning what ingredients are for what was very helpful! Couldn’t recommend enough!

Hi November is high season so you should make a reservation a few week before if possible. We do have a class on Loy Krathong Festival no worries. Anymore information please do not hesitate to contact us.
