It took us four hours over two nights to find Angela’s legendary kitchen. True the original shack was destroyed in the tsunami. But it’s been rebuilt in the same location, right past the entrance to the Hyatt. It’s easy to see why it has such a great reputation, with fresh ingredients and big portions and an easy to understand menu... More

We were in a hotel up the raps from here and visited the White Orchid twice. They are rebuilding the restaurant after the original was hit in the tsunami and it is a work in progress I'm guessing! That doesn't detract from the great staff, the delicious food at very reasonable prices and great view just across from the beach.... More

We've been at the White Orchid on our first night in Kamala because of the very good rating and advice from Tripadvisor, and it was totally worth it. The setting would be 'country style', if there were a 'country'. However, you are along the beach, in a simple a rustic set. Too bad for the road which passes by, however,... More

We came here due to the good reviews on Tripadvisor and are so glad we did so. The lady owner greeted us with interest and offered a table either under cover, out on the grass or across the small road at the top of the beach under the trees. There was a good range on the menu, seafood and meat... More

We have been to white orchid a few times and always find the food authentic fresh and tasty. We usually start with the spring rolls and chicken satay and then red chicken curry and whatever seafood is available on the day. Ask the owner on what seafood she has and recommends!!! They have the BEST CHICKEN SATAY in Phuket which... More

We went to the White Orchid on Kamala Beach but it was not like the above picture. The original we were told was wrecked in the Tsunami although it boasted to be the White Orchid. Nevertheless we found the food fantastic and would rate it extremely high. Very tasty and spicy. Yes there were flies, but "hello" so were everywhere... More
