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

The music is too loud, we ended up with a table on the beachside opposite the road which was great. I asked for little spicy but found my meal rather hot, next time I will ask for no spicey. They lit a candle on our table which was nice, the staff and chef were great.

Using a traditional single wok connected to a gas bottle in an outdoors under cover eating area beside the beach, we cooked our own yummy lunch. We were shown how to chop, crush herbs, make sauces and salad by very friendly staff and then completed tasks ourselves. It was informative and a great laugh with friends as we attempted to... More

Food is bad. A lot of flys are beside you and food. Price is also ridiculous. Don't think will come again. Beach is really quiet. Lot of privacy. But better go to other restaurant.

** 2 important things i've gotta say before i start my review proper, firstly... i'm SINGAPOREAN, that's as Asian as you can be (if you're not sure, please look it up) and if you want good food recommendations, especially on Asian food, you've gotta trust a Singaporean (our national past-time is eating).. secondly i wanna say a big SORRY to...

I have been to White Orchid a few times. Besides the food, the service is wonderful. They always made me feel like a visiting family member. Because the food has always been wonderful, I finally decided to take a cooking class along with a couple of friends of mine. Had a WONDERFUL time and felt we were hanging around the... More

We had the classic Thai dishes (less one as the server missed a dish) and were extremely disappointed with the quality of the food and how the dishes were prepared. The meat was overcooked and flavor was bland. I cannot believe they provide cooking lessons at this establishment. I disagree with the TA comment that the restaurant is good value.... More

Integrated in the building of a new built luxury resort is the friendly and authentic Thai restaurant White Orchid. It is directly located opposite of a beautiful beach, with some nice wooden tables at the beach. The first day we went there with our 2 kids of 4 and 5 for a lunch. The food was excellent: spring rolls, red... More

A little hard to get to unless you are staying at the Patong end of Kamala Beach but definitely worth the effort. Good selection of the classic Thai dishes and plenty for kids who just want european food served in a open air basement with the water just across the road and a good selection for drinks available at reasonable...

We visited White Orchard for my daughters 15th birthday while in Phuket! The owner Angela had put up balloons everywhere which was a lovely surprise when we arrived. Angela had also organised fireworks, to set of on the beach to celebrate while we were there! Seriously where would you get that kind of service anywhere in Australia? The food was... More
