Mateus was a great chef and teacher. He chose dishes with simple ingredients but which required good fundamental techniques - and he demonstrated these techniques really well. The meal was very tasty and the dining area was a very nice space. I definitely took some learnings from the class that I will use again.

I highly recommend Chef Mateus! I bought my boyfriend the Traditional Thai Feast as a Christmas gift and it exceeded both our expectations. The food was delicious and we learned a lot of new cooking tricks for when we cook at home.

Chef Mateus most kindly responded to all levels of cooking and cutlery experience in our group and kept everyone safe, learning and moving forward. Gave us memories we will cherish for a lifetime-not to mention skills and recipes we will utilize for a lifetime. Thanks so much chef Mateus soups chef Susie; amazing evening-thank you for making NYC even more special!

Our cooking class with Chef Mateus was amazing! We had a team bonding activity and chose the Thai Feast class. He was very knowledgeable of Thai cuisine, taught us a lot of tips and tricks for cooking, and most importantly – the meal was amazing. I would definitely recommend taking a class with Chef Mateus!

I brought my spouse to Chef Mateus's kitchen as a birthday surprise gift. The experience exceeded our expectations! Not only did we get tons of valuable knowledge about Thai cuisine and tips&tricks for achieving a mouth-watering flavor, but we also had lots of fun and got to take the remainings of our dinner home - that's how much food we cooked together. It was incredible, and we're planning to come back.
Chef Mateus taught us so much about cuts and spices, I already feel like a better cook. Thank you very much.
