Casual thai restaurant

Great little thai restaurant in kamala near the hyatt. Great location by the sea with tables on the sand on a side of a quiet street...great for lunch or sunset diner.

We enjoyed a hens night dinner on the beach. Organised one day before, the food was mostly terrific and the mojitos were flowing. Angela is an amazingly attentive host. If you want authentic Thai and great tunes definitely give this place a go.

This unfortunately is a restaurant that I could not reccomend.Whilst the restaurant is right on the beach this is probably the best aspect of the establishment.The chairs are extremely uncomftable which does not make for a nice evening.The food is OK but nothing great.

After eating there we were so impressed with the food we booked a cooking class the next day and ate there again two days later! The food at this place is super impressive and the view over the beach is... More

We came in for dinner one evening after seeing the signs from Kamala beach, and it was beautiful right next to the beach and the food was amazing! So we came again a couple of days later for a cooking class! We loved it thanks we can't wait to try out our new recipes.

I never had a such good night, like today at the White Orchid. We are guests at the Hyatt Regency, and the Restaurant being just outside and seeing it all the times, took us to give it a try! And it was the best idea ever! The food was delivered as fastest as possible, 3 minutes waiting time for the... More

We visited White Orchid for dinner while on a family holiday in Phuket. Angela, the owner was a lovely charming host & helped us pick some local delicacies. We are used to having Thai food quite often but this was amongst the best we have eaten. We enjoyed the food, ambience & location by the beach so much that we... More

We visited the White Orchid on a recent trip to Phuket, and were delighted with both the ambience and the fare. It was rustic but tasteful, offering very good food, and was located close to the beach, as a result of which we enjoyed a bit of sea breeze. The owner, Angela, was an absolute joy to deal with: she... More
