Learn and taste Thai street food and culture
nicolebA586HK, 02-06-2022
Great activity with good tasting food. It was educational and I'm so glad we did this at the beginning of our trip to teach us about Thai food and what we might like or not like to order going forward with our time in Thailand. Having it be private with just our group was great. We got to sample many foods and pleasantly I was able to eat everything even being gluten free. My only problem was they told us to meet a train station but it was the wrong train station which led to some confusion. So glad we did this, thanks for having us!
Great food tour

We had the chance to sample some delicious dishes and learn about many more in an entertaining and informative tour. Araya was a delight to spend time with - engaging, friendly, well-informed and articulate. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.
Good taste

Delicious Experience

My traveling companion and I are still debating our favorite dish on the street food tour. It's so hard to decide! Piyaporn introduced us to so many new dishes, deserts, and drinks while also sharing delicious renditions of some of Thailand's classics. Her knowledge of Thailand's culinary history and culture added depth to the experience. Can't recommend enough!
Tasty local food tour

Sammy was great. Initial contact and meet up time and location was smooth. He was cognizant of my wife's gluten sensitivity. He took us to a local street food market near the subway where we tried the best papaya salad I have ever had. (Almost all of the food is the best I've ever had) We went to several other spots and Sammy knew to slow down on the heavy foods when he saw we were getting stuffed. It was very hard to not try and finish everything that was ordered for us but we knew there was more food coming. At the end of the tour in Chinatown, Sammy gave us some additional local insights and hints and we parted ways. Would definitely recommend a tour with Sammy.
A perfect evening with Chef Hnoi and Bangkok's incomparable street food scene
Ceola10, 27-11-2022
I absolutely recommend taking this street food tour with Chef Hnoi.
She took us to Chinatown where we sampled a variety of dishes. Chef Hnoi was sensitive to my dietary preferences (I don't eat pork, which I'm sure you can understand presents significant limitations for me eating street food in an Asian country) and was sure to find food I could enjoy.
We had a mix of savoury and sweet meals and Chef Hnoi took the time to explain the components of each dish and how it fits into the Thai flavour preferences.
She clearly has a wonderful rapport with the food vendors in the area, who all greeted her warmly. One vendor even trusted her to manage his pot of doughnuts while he ran inside his home for a light.
My husband and I left really satisfied, not only with the food but with Chef Hnoi's excellent company. I truly cannot recommend her enough.
Take this foodie walking tour!

We had the best day of our holiday thus far after meeting Araya at the designated meeting point. Her pre-meet communication with us was perfect and we had no trouble finding her despite being unfamiliar with the city. Araya took us to five eating spots and tailored the choices to suit our preferences. Each of them was good of its type and Araya’s extensive historical and cultural knowledge made the 2.5 hours pass in a flash. We would recommend Araya to anyone with an interest in Thai food, history and culture.
Kapunka Chef Hnoi
GwynetDaniel, 01-11-2022
Bangkok is an assault on the senses and taste buds in the best possible way. It felt wonderful and reassuring to have a guide like Chef Hnoi to crack the touristy exterior and allow us to swim into and be able to enjoy, experience and taste a small bit of the real Bangkok. Chef Hnoi is a very personable and well informed guide - we left feeling like we had made a new friend. If we could we would be back in a heartbeat and would definitely make use of the services of With Locals and Chef Hnoi. Thank you - Kapunka
