Ru of Krua Thai Cookery School was very friendly and experienced in all aspects of Thai cuisine. Her home is the venue and her kitchen is spotless and professionally run.
All ingredients are supplied and explanations given as to provenance, spicyness etc. The Pad Thai we made was delicious and enough was made for a portion to try there and also to take home - result!
