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

Perfect place to watch the sunset on the beach in Kamala. Beautiful authentic Thai food, including best spring rolls ever! Very relaxed atmosphere with genuine personal service. Angela and her staff were very welcoming. Wish we had found this place earlier. We returned the next day for a cooking class which was amazing. This was great fun with Angela and... More

Great location as it is away from the hustle and bustle of Patong. The food was excellent and we could sit on the beach eat our lunch and have a few cold ones, dosn't get much better than that. Great food, service and lovely staff.

My boyfriend and me enjoyed a dinner and a lunch cooking class at White Orchid Restaurant. Although the restaurant setting is simple after the tsunami and you might thought that's going to close, the people is nice and the food is delicious. You can taste the real local food at the restaurant. Try the Tong Yum Kong, Mango Rice, Pepper... More

I guess it's funny experiences like this that make a holiday. We found the restaurant without any trouble right next to the Hyatt. It is now very non descript in a concrete shop front. It is rainy low season so we couldn't sit on the beach side. To order we had to speak to someone on a mobile phone provided... More

This is toes in the sand, genuine beach front, relax and watch the tide change Thai restaurant dining. We were the only table dining the night we went - can't understand why no-one else was there. Didn't mean to chase other diners away. We arrived just on sunset and enjoyed watching the sunset over the ocean. Candle lanterns were lit... More
