    Definitely book whilst in Krabi!!
    I definitely recommend penny’s cooking class to anyone looking for something fun to do in Krabi. It is number 1 for a reason! The food was fresh and the best I’ve tasted in the last 3 weeks I’ve been in Thailand! Penny was absolutely amazing, she is so kind and helpful but hilarious! She is so funny and makes the whole experience unforgettable! Definitely come hungry because there is a lot of food! I couldn’t eat it all but I really wanted to as it was delicious! Leave space for dessert as there is 2 of them! She also emails you with a cookbook after the class so you can follow at home :) hotel pick up and drop off after too so everything is taken care of. 10/10 recommend and would love to come back and visit penny again one day!

    Easy, quick and tasty
    The best tour on our thailand vacation so far. Penny was really kind and funny. Always tried to do the best for us to make it a great experience. Here you learn how to cook authentic thai food. Not compared to the cheap tourist trap restaurants. Highly recommend to so this on your Thailand trip.

    Fantastic Cooking Experience!
    We spent a fantastic afternoon today with the wonderful Penny learning all things Thai cuisine, and felt compelled to share as soon as we arrived back at the hotel (laden with boxes of takeaway food we were unable to finish at the cooking school) As well as being extremely welcoming to everyone, Penny is a font of knowledge and eager to share. The choice of dishes on offer is wide enough to find something to your taste (my wife even managed to cook something “off menu” with no issue at all). Would heartily recommend to everyone, it’s a great way to spend a few hours and if nothing else, you will go home with an (extremely) full belly!

    One of the best experiences during our trip!
    Definitely recommend this cooking school to everyone! We had so much fun and Penny was so lovely and professional. We learn so much about thai cooking and incredients. Food was absolutely fantastic (even though we did it ourselves 😂) and we got to eat a lot! So no need to leave hungry.

    Fantastic authentic Thai cooking class
    Thank you so much Penny!!!! We had the best time ever. We were able to make any of our favourite Thai dishes in addition to the suggested dishes. We made a total of 7 courses including 2 deserts. We also got a copy of recipes including information about authentic Thai ingredients. Amazing day and would definitely recommend.

    Penny is the best !
    Amazing experience. We cooked 7 authentic Thai dishes (inc 2 deserts) and everything was delicious. Penny explained how to cook everything clearly and even allowed us to cook whatever Thai dish we wanted! Could not recommend this cooking class enough. Pickup and drop off from hotel also included.

    Amazing - also for vegetarians!
    Great afternoon in the cooking school. So many tips and hacks I did not know. It was a lot of fun. Penny‘s cooking course is highly recommended. You should go there if you want to learn cooking Thai Food. No problems if you are vegetarian, vegan or have allergies - they find a solution.

    Unforgettable cooking class!
    This cooking class was Amazing! First of all Penny is incredible, she is explaining everything and it’s very interesting and fun. Second of all, the ingredients are fresh and good, the class is preforming professionally. The last and the most important is that the food in the end is *unbelievably good*. Seriously you won’t believe how good it is, and YOU make it. Now that we’re eating in a restaurant we understand how amazing and not obvious the flavors that Penny teaches you is. I truly recommend you to go! Thank me later.

    Still the best cooking class in Thailand!!!
    We returned for a second class, after first attending one in 2017. We have taken many cooking classes all over Thailand but none matches the one with Penny and her team. Friendly, relaxed and you really get the insight how to cook the tastiest Thai food at home. We had a wonderful evening and can’t wait to return for a third time…

    Brilliant Experience, caters well for Vegans
    Penny was a fantastic host and brought so much energy and warmth to the session. Neither my partner nor I are experienced cooks, but the class was accessible to all levels, as well as being fun and informative. Caters to vegetarians and vegans very easily (only minor changes are that vegetarians cannot choose one of the three possible soups, and vegans additionally make an egg-free pad thai if this is the stir fry dish they choose). Was also a good way to try new dishes; I'd never opted for a thai soup or salad before, nor the desserts on offer, but was impressed with all three. The meal at the end was one of the best in our 2.5 week trip across Thailand (make sure to arrive hungry!); leftovers can be taken away with you. This isn't the sort of thing I'd usually opt for, but was so glad I did, and will be trying to recreate all of these back home!

Great experience on how to cook Thai food. Penny was very nice and funny also. We each picked 5 dishes of your choice and then Prepared them. She Explained how to do each dish step by step. Very good class and she also gives you a digital cookbook for later.

We were recommended this by some travellers who insisted this was an experience not to miss. We booked in easily by whatsapping penny, and what followed is undoubtedly an evening to remember forever! Penny’s enthusiasm, warmth, passion and humour shone throughout the entire class! We were looked after extremely well (including transfers there and back from the pier (we were staying at Railay)). We cooked 5 dishes each, and learnt so much about Thai cuisine. The whole session was 4 hours from start to finish, and it flew by. It was incredible value for money, and we couldn’t recommend it enough. The certificate and cookbook are a lovely touch, and her offer to contact her anytime we need support making the dishes at home is one of the many endearing parts of Penny’s generous nature. Thank you again Penny for an EPIC evening, love Sameer and Vanessa!

We had a wonderful day today @ Thai Charm cooking school. After a warm welcome we were introduced to Jenny, our teacher. Choices had to be made for the dishes and after a detailed explanation of all ingredients and recipes, it was our turn to prepare and cook the delicious meals. Thanks again Jenny for a lovely day.

Penny is amazing!
We loved the thai-cooking class. Now we can go home and make delicious Thai-dishes, and if we have any questions we can easily ask the best teacher, Penny.
Thanks for this wonderful experience!

The best cooking class!! We’ve done numerous cooking classes in various parts of the world. I have to say, hands down this was the best class we’ve ever taken part in. You get to choose which dishes you would like to cook individually which was good and each person made all of their chosen dishes. The food was phenomenal….the best food we’ve eaten since we arrived in Krabi. Penny was amazing at instructing and explaining and her energy is captivating. Such an engaging, comical energetic lady. Thank you…..you have given us an u forgettable experience. Great Xmas day experience!

Penny was perfect! As our instructor, she would show us what to do and send us off to our stations. She told us what the recipe was and told us her method or secret ingredients! Great food and great fun! Don’t miss it!
