Description: Husband & wife ran business in the heart of Newquay. We have a well priced vibrant wine menu, good selection of local & international beers, ciders, spirits & soft drinks and indulgent desserts to temp your taste buds. Our menu? Currently a combination of dishes from Thailand, Asia, Malaysia, Vietnam & India which stems from years of travelling. We aim to change our menu every few months and like to include a good selection of vegetarian dishes which are popular with everyone not just the veggies! The team are friendly, knowledgeable and most of all appreciate the importance of delivering a seamless service. Nothing is too much trouble. We want you to come back time and time again and have exactly the same standard of food and service. Our name reflects the size of the restaurant, we only have seven tables so it's always advisable to book ahead to avoid any dissapointment!

“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

I ate here recently based on the reviews I had read and the fact I desparately wanted to try somewhere my parents hadn't been... It's only a small restaurant so it took a couple of attempts to book a table but it was well worth it.

Started with duck spring rolls which were well filled with tender duck & tasty veg, and the tempura squid which was simply divine! A light batter, delicious dressing and well presented. My bf and I both had the pad thai for main which was also delicious, packed full of different flavours.

The night we visited there were a few things unavailable however this could have been due to it being over the new yr period, and saying that, there were always alternatives and personally I would rather there were some slight changes to the fish on the menu based on what was freshly available that day so if anything we quite liked this!

I recommended it to my parents who have now been twice in the past month and all of us can't wait to go again as we just want to try everything on the menu. If you want fresh, tasty, attractive food and good portions at a price that won't break the bank this place is a must visit, but I'd suggest booking in advance to make sure you can get in!

“Fantastic seafood and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I ate here a few weeks ago when on a weekend trip t Newquay. We booked in advance and it was a good job we did because it's a small place with not that many tables available. The moment we got in there we knew we were going to have a good evening because it smelt amazing and all the staff were extremely friendly - very efficient but not in the least bit pushy. Despite there being only two of us we both went for rendang and didn't regret it. The wine list was short but good and our dessert was fantastic. Superb place, fully deserving of its rave reviews!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Red Thai curry last Saturday was so delicious! I do not know what Ryan puts in the sauce, but it just tastes amazing. Thank you Ryan and Kelly for another lovely evening. By the way, the new décor really suits your style and the food you serve. Visit Little Kahuna for a wonderful taste experience you will be talking about for a long time. You will need to book though, to avoid disappointment.

“Fabulous Asian style meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Visited this after reading reviews on here and was not disappointed! It's small but has a really chilled out atmosphere with friendly staff. I have visited Thailand and enjoy that kind of food, tempura prawns and pad Thai both delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we had the salted caramel and chocolate dessert, very rich and yummy, could not finish it! Really nice temprillino Rioja wine, great food, company and service. Will visit again.
