Description: We are a husband & wife team Ryan & Kelly Mather. We have been restauranteurs for the last 8 years. Combined we have a huge amount of experience in hospitality and have worked in many different countries using our skills to fund our travels. Previously known as Kahuna we relocated almost 2 years ago and renamed our resturant Little Kahuna due to the size. We love how intimate our new location is and the sucess of our first restaurant on Tolcarne beach gave us the confidence to open in the centre of town. Of course we will miss our beach side location but we are no longer dependent upon the weather and can open our doors all year round rather than being a seasonal business! Little Kahuna boasts an open kitchen which creates a really special dining experience. We are open for dinner from 6pm tues - sat. We are closed sun & mon off season! Lavazza is our preferred brand of coffee. 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! See you soon!

“Well worth a visit! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Me and the girlfriend were lucky enough to get a last minute table here on Tuesday night (will be sure to book next time!), after reading the reviews on here. Safe to say we weren't disappointed. The food tasted amazing, and the presentation was not far behind. I would highly recommend the shared starter and the ribs! My only regret is that I didn't have room for a desert! Will be visiting again, thanks!

Lovely little restaurant. Amazing food and great service. Only 8tables in the place so book in but it means quality is fabulous. It's a must if you like Thai. Can't wait to return.

“Best meal in ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We had a wonderful three course meal last night whilst visiting Cornwall!
Japanese King prawns were fabulous as were our mains!
I don't normally leave reviews but felt impelled to do so on this occasion as we were bowled over by the flavours! We are two enthusiastic foodies and Little Kahuna exceeded our expectations!
Will recommend and hope to be back in the future!
