What a lovely restaurant - very welcoming staff, beautifully decorated and tasty food! The lady who served us was very friendly - helping us try to understand exactly what foods were veggie or not, and gave us very helpful recommendations too. We had tofu and tempeh versions of the Thai and Penang curries, which were absolutely delicious.

The food and service in the Kahuna was excellent. If you are going to Newquay and want something spicy you will do so much worse if you go to the more traditional Indian around the corner. There the food was bland and the service appalling. At the Kahuna the staff were friendly and efficient. The four of us all had... More

We managed to get a table for 4 without booking midweek, but we were very lucky, the restaurant was busy and I would recommend booking. We are a family of two adults and two children of 9 and 6. The 9 year old normally has an adult meal and the 6 either shares or a child portion. On this occasion... More

Second visit to Kahuna and hopefully many more to come. Had the ribs and special fried rice and it was delicious, this is the best Thai food. Certainly the best restaurant in Newquay, make sure you book in advance online and very busy.

We ate in Kahuna last weekend, it is one of our favorite places to eat and it didn't disappoint. I loved the pad Thai and my wife really enjoyed the fish curry. I honestly cannot rate the food at Kahuna highly enough, it goes above and beyond any other south east Asian food I have tasted. Thank you for a... More

So, busy restaurant, need to pre-book. Wednesday night booking, restaurant busy, good atmosphere, nice to see tables spread out and not on top of each other. Seated and drinks and food ordered. We had a side of Thai Shrimp Crackers with dips whilst waiting for our starters. This was the 'Taster Plate for 2! Consisting of ... -Tempura battered tiger... More

We recently visited Kahuna on a recommendation from friends. We were very impressed with the food and service. For starters both the Salt & Pepper Squid and Char Sui Ribs were delicious. This was followed by a superb Seafood Thai Green Curry. The portions were large and represented great value for money. Look forward to visiting this authentic restaurant again.

We visit every time we visit Newquay. We always book in advance as we would be very disappointed if we could'nt get a table. As always it was an excellent meal with very good service. Make sure you put this on your list when near Newquay. There is car parking nearby iff a road behind the restaurant if you can't... More
