About us

It starts from Sally who is local folk from Phuket. Her mother’s side has owned restaurant in Phuket for almost 70 years. She has been inherited real authentic Thai cuisine from family along with skills and techniques to make real taste of Thai food.

Adding Jim to the class, who is from Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. His style of cooking should add more uniqueness fad fun to each single dish that provided from the class.

Lastly, Su, her aunty, comes to fill in and makes the class more rich and well organized to deliver the best to you all.

We are 3 real Thais who were born, raised and taught the mix of classic and modern ways of Thai cooking.

Thank you so much for teaching us a little about the Thai way of cooking…. Just love that Pad Thai can´t wait to come back and do another class next time I’m in town.

Amanda | UK

If you are spending time in the Kata area of Phuket this is something you shouldn’t miss. I had a fantastic day at Kata Thai Cooking School and Sally is a great teacher, I now regularly cook great Thai food, thanks to Sally!

Karolina | Poland

Sally is very nice and patient. The food was great, beside my little Chilli exident 🙂 It was a relaxing and interesting afternoon! Also the market tour was very good … I finally got to know, how much a pineapple really should cost and that next time I don´t have to pay too much:-)

Damian | Australia

Thanks again Sally. I have already cooked your Pad Thai back here in Australia!!! Yum!!!!!

Anna | Sweden

My friends and I took two classes with Sally: the Wednesday morning class and the monday afternoon class which included a little market tour. Since we were a larger group, we got a little discount on the regular fee. Both menues were great and easy to cook – once you know how. Thank you and greetings!

Christiane | Germany

Das hat sich gelohnt und ich kann es von Herzen weiter empfehlen! Es stimmt, dass das ein Mitbringsel aus dem Urlaub ist von dem man noch lange zu Hause was hat! Auch super, Sally hat uns im Hotel abgeholt! HAt mir alles super geschmeckt und war sehr leicht zu kochen!

Martin | Germany

I´ve taken the class with my wife, well basically she took the class and I was her +1 but and I have to say it´s easier than you might think. I´m pretty sure the fried rice is something I will cook at home myself … or at least try. 🙂
