Don't leave Phuket without eating here. We had spring rolls, fried rice, satay and prawns. Food was fresh and delicious. Owner Angela is a wonderful lady.

The food here was absolutely amazing! The best spring rolls I've ever had. Also had the squid and if was delicious. The staff were so friendly and the owner made us feel like family. The view here of the ocean is breathtaking!

Difficult to see why people are raving about this restaurant and giving it five stars. We arrived to find the place completely empty - just a few staff (?) in the restaurant playing very loud rock music on a music system. The restaurant proper on the 'land side' of the road looked very ordinary. We sat on the beach side... More

Stopped here for dinner after a drink at vanilla sky. Food was amazing and authentic. Family run and cooked with Thai love by the owners daughter on the night we came. Right on the water. A no frills place but the food is spot on, great heat on the dishes that should be spicy, and good flavor on the noodle... More

Not only were the people so kind, the food was delicious. I felt like I was at home. The family owned restaurant took a hit with Tsunami & they've managed to rebuild. Business hasnt been the same since unfortunately. Not sure why because the food was GREAT

We've been here many times - do not be put off by the appearance of the place or the menu - most of the great Thai dishes aren't on the menu - just ask for Thai fish cakes (homemade) and delicious red curry! The best food in Kamala by far!

Got incredibly sick after our lunch at the white orchid. My wife and I ate the same things the meals before so we could conclude that it was due to the lunch at this place. Staff very nice, personal service and so on but really not an inspiring place, more of a construction site and I guess poor hygiene. I... More

Whilst staying in Kamala, by far the best meal my boyfriend and I ate was at the White Orchid restaurant... Angela's recipes are delicious. Both Angela and her staff are so lovely. The day after we ate dinner there, Angela took us on for a cooking class... Which was such an amazing experience and a highlight of my holiday. She... More

Nice near location to Hyatt regency hotel, just a few steps. Food quality and quantity are not that good for the overrated pricing

Thank Htsh
