Internet Reviews:

"The class was definitely a lot of fun and one of the highlights of our trip. Although her classes aren't as well known as some of the hotel and restaurant cooking classes, I'd recommend Yui's class to anyone and everyone." - a mother and daughter from America (link)

"One place you can go is in Chiangmai. Yui (the teacher) is so friendly  and has loads of patience! BTW don't get your guesthouse or hotel agent to call Yui because they will earn quite an amount of commission from her, which of course you pay for! Better to go through her directly." - Sally from the UK (link)

"A Lot of Thai, has been one of the good decisions of this trip. The Thai green curry I made today was probably the best dish I have ever cooked - ah, quite lovely, even in memory. Yui teaches at her home, in a quiet neighbourhood .... It was wonderful to meet someone who didn't seem interested in perpetuating that financially rewarding wall between tourists and the city." - Daniel from the UK (link)
