My fiance and I called Angela on the last day of our trip to see if she had any time for a cooking class. Since it was during the late afternoon, she offered to pick us up from our hotel (saved us a 800THB round-trip taxi ride.) Her English is very good and she was very friendly during our entire...

Auntie Angela taught us the wonderful secrets of Thai cooking! Can't believe we can cook fabulous Thai dishes now in just one lesson. Thanks Auntie! Her food is really authentic and I'd definitely recommend everyone visiting Kamala to pay her a visit.

I've eaten at the White Orchid several times. Each time it gets better and better. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area. The owner is fantastic and always greets her guest with charm. The views are great and it's a very relaxing place.

After staying at a nearby resort and reading some reviews of this place, we were excited to visit White Orchid. Whilst far from fine dining, the open air restaurant within metres of the beach creates a warm atmosphere. We were greeted by a lovely lady of very few words. We told her we had heard they had the best spring... More

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
