We had a romantic candelight dinner on the beach and watched the hotels send off floating lanterns. The food was good and well priced, but we had a hard time finding this place. Taxi wanted to charge us 100 baht extra because it is not in Kamala town. We thought we could walk from the beach town, but that was... More

Well, decided to head to this place just literally down the road where we stayed. I chose this place because of its proximity and the quiet beach front setting. Arrived at 7:30 pm and as recommended by one reviewer, we brought our own wine as we did not expect a place like this to have a wine list. They chilled... More

The cooking class is a very nice introduction to traditional Thai dishes and it is very well organized with fresh and colorful ingredients ready to use. The owner Angela is very nice and a good English speaker. She introduced the 4 dishes which... More

I don't always come to Phuket, but when i do, this is the place for me. It's away from the crowds, I get to sit ON the beach and enjoy the tropical sea breeze. To top it all, Angela always has the freshest seafood available! The spring rolls are excellent, as with the lobster in coconut sauce, and of course... More

We were lucky enough to enjoy a lovely meal at the white orchid in Kamala. The food was excellent and the service was the best we've experienced in Thailand, but that was definitely only the second best time we had there. We booked a Thai cooking class two days later, this was great, we loved it and we thoroughly recommend... More

I'm very surprised by some of the negative reviews. My friend and I loved to eat here! I stayed at a hotel in walking distance, ate here 6 out of 8 nights and was never disappointed. Every dish I ordered was fresh and delicious, service was good, atmosphere was unique - especially if you sat at one of the candlelit... More

Worse Thai food we had on the whole trip, the Phad Thai was bland, and the Chicken Satay was raw. if you want really good Thai food, at a great price, you have to go down the road to Danny's Place on the beach road, tiny little Swedish dive Bar (yes, i know, but the kitchen is run by Thai... More
