Our teacher was Nam (Thai for Water) who was very informative, funny and showed off some impressive skills. Jam packed with information including ingredient substitutes for some elements which are not available within each student's home countries. Includes a beautiful cook book with all the information they teach you and more (as it's way too much remember immediately). Quite a... More

This activity was great fun from start to finish! You have to sit at the entrance to the alley, don't go in, because first they pick you up and take you to the market where Joo shows you all the foods she will buy for ingredients. She is so funny, friendly, genuine and helpful! The class ran so smoothly and... More

Started at 8:45am at the meeting point on Soi 11 after our quick breakfast (don't eat too much beforehand) and first off Mr Jay gave us a tour in the wet market across the road. He detailed explained all sort of local ingredients and impressively can speak 4 languages (English, Thai, Cantonese and Mandarin) and can see all the stall... More

I had a great afternoon cooking with our guest chef, Goong. The wet market was closed, but she showed us some of the common ingredients in Thai cooking. We went back to the school and spent a few hours cooking some great Thai food. The classes were really hands on: we prepped many of the ingredients and had our own... More

If you are in Bangkok and want to try cooking, this is a great cooking school! I went there with my boyfriend and his mother, when she came to visit. We went two times and tried different dishes. They have great facilities and the classes are small, which makes it more intimate and you really learn a lot. The second... More

You would never find the Silom Cooking School without their directions, so well hidden is this culinary gem. Superb presentation of ingredients, the right mixture of information and some hands-on chopping and cutting, Kai, a teacher/chef with a great smile and even better sense of humour: you're in for a treat. Students prepare one dish and whilst they eat their... More

I would highly recommend this experience. Well worth the money you pay. (Of which I compared prices from a few cooking schools, this was half the price of some other ones). We registered with a group of four, two married couples. In our class there were 10 students total. But you could easily do this as a single, you make... More

My partner and I wanted to enjoy a cooking class together. He is a beginner and I am an experienced cook. We opted for this school because they offered a Menu A and Menu B on the day that we wanted to attend. Despite informing the school that I have already learned how to cook everything on Menu A and...

The Thai cooking experience at Silom was a great way to learn about the complexities of Thai cooking from a real Thai chef. We were part of a group of 8 and the instruction was superb, from the explanations, details of what the relevant substitutions would be for ingredients available back home through to a an amazing meal. The participants... More

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
