I also want to learn sometimes but I think I'm not really for it so I just enjoy eating the dishes and forget about the cooking.

I hate to bring you down to earth but you are contradicting people who have lived here for over 20 years. Someone raised the fact that even though Michelin inspectors do visit Bangkok and surrounds once a year they have rarely given out even one star and those were to individual chefs and not the restaurants. If you read the Michelin report they clearly state that the over use of chilli and non-fresh produce is the reason why.
Many Thai restaurants overseas have Michelin stars, but their standards are much higher.
On father's day last year I was taken to a "high class" Thai/Farang restaurant and joined the queue at the local hospital 1 day later with food poisoning. Locals call it Bangkok Belly, and if you'd care to read a local newspaper you'll find whole schools are affected at times.
