We have been to Thailand before and know Thai food well thanks to our Thai friends in kamala. The food tasted very nice but the 5 dishes we ordered were so small that only three people ate (one of the 3 was a child) so we were terribly disappointed for the expensive price we paid. We had 5 different people... More

What a beautiful place to sit and have a relaxing cocktail, meal while watching the sun go down over Kamala. Our host was just beautiful. The food is amazing and the desserts are to die for. Mango and sticky rice, Banana fritters, or pancakes. Yummo. The owner even drove us back to our hotel.

If you are looking for an amazing culinary experience while enjoying the simplicity and beauty of Phuket, the White Orchid is the place. It was by far the best meal we had while in Phuket. A perfect balance of spices coupled with the freshest ingredients all while dinning with your toes in the sand. It was an amazing all around... More

Well, it's been 9 mths since I found this place and it hasn't disappointed me at all on my return visit. This is authentic Thai Food which can also accommodate for young children and western pallet (No / Little Spicy as I say). However, my friends who love spicy also get what they are looking for to. The food and... More
