Came to book 5 lobsters and 9 beef Thai salads. Price was 1100 per lobster. Been served 4 salads and waited about 2 hours before the order was complete. Surprise at bill came at the table, the price was 1700 per lobsters, talked to the boss and didn't want to hear anything. I wouldn't advise this place to anyone in... More

Based on the stellar reviews we went here earlier tonight. I don't think I can remember the last time I felt so ripped off by a restaurant and had such a piss poor food. We ordered a Tom yum soup with noodles, fishcakes, prawn curry and 2 mango juices. In a couple of minutes we were presented with some free... More

The setting of this wonderful thai restaurant is simply stunning. Late night candlelight beach dinner, ice cold drinks and sand between your toes. You feel at home once as soon as you are greated by Angela the owner and operator of the establishment. Her passion for life and amazing food is contagious. Every dish on the menu is fabulous, be...

This was one of the best meals on our trip. The red curry was amazing and the chicken larb to die for. Highly recommended!

Went there on a quiet off peak day. Was quite a long walk in the dark but fun also. The building doesn't look like the first picture but the interior is still very nice. Immediately welcomed by the lovely staff who offered us a special seat across from the road at the beach below some cute lights hanging from the... More

This is a gem of a place with fantastic views across the beach, food & service was really good, still rebuilding after tsunami so a bit rustic but is well worth supporting the locals. After your mean enjoy a nice cold drink on the beach

Fantastic day with Angela and her team at White Orchid. The weather hadn't been great so my girlfriend and I decided a cooking class would be a great way to spend an afternoon. The restaurant is lovely - nice location right on the beach away from central Kamala, out near the Hyatt Regency (if you're staying there you'd be mad... More

We had dinner at this place, yesterday evening with 4 persons. White orchid is run by Angela and her sister. We had 9 dishes, 2 beers, 2 wines and 4 sodas and paid Thai Baht 1950. The food: real thai flavor, spicy but no too much. Speciality of the house are their spring rolls, and we have ordered this twice.... More

We have been there in February 2016 just to attend the cooking classes. It was great. There was no one besides us, so all attention was on us. We really learned a lot, and even got presents. The owner is a incredibly nice woman, who really knows how to make people spend a very good time.

The best dining experience in Kamala Beach! Of course this is food from a cooking school so you can expect the best flavours and quality, especially the handmade spring rolls, but for the real experience of a lifetime, ask for the BBQ!!! We ate here twice on a Sunday evening and loved it! Auntie had the BBQ on (suggest you... More
