    What to Expect
    Chef VJ is very fluent in English so you will have no problem understanding step by step instructions. Not only that, she would be able to give much more information and answer all your doubts you might have regarding ingredients or any other questions you have about thai cooking.

    Most importantly, we will also tell you the replacement of the important ingredients that you could use at home if that ingredient is not available.

    Cooking is done in a clean kitchen.

    Everyone has his or her own cooking station.

    We teach and let you make your own Curry Paste from scratch using Motar and Pestle (No MSG and no buying ready made ones from the market)

    If you can not finish your food, we have a take-away bag for you.

    Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and Halal dishes can be arranged upon request.

    Private group can be arranged.

    Dishes can be spicy or non spicy.

    No MSG (we do not use MSG in our cooking)
