Whilst staying in Kamala, by far the best meal my boyfriend and I ate was at the White Orchid restaurant... Angela's recipes are delicious. Both Angela and her staff are so lovely. The day after we ate dinner there, Angela took us on for a cooking class... Which was such an amazing experience and a highlight of my holiday. She... More

Nice near location to Hyatt regency hotel, just a few steps. Food quality and quantity are not that good for the overrated pricing

While staying at the Hyatt next door, we stumbled upon White Orchid for lunch. I'm a vegan and after telling the owner, Angela, that she went out of her way to prepare something special off the menu. We were so impressed with the food we decided to take a cooking with her the next evening. We made four different dishes,... More

Went to this hotel on our first night. It was very quiet but we sat by the water and enjoyed a beautiful evening. The food was good and fresh I had squid curry and my husband chicken red curry. Both excellent and the real deal not like some places that use heavy paste and over sweetened. It is a family... More

We had a fantastic evening with Angela and the White Orchid staff learning to make fresh, delicious Thai food. The cooking class taught us a lot, including tips and tricks we had not used before in our kitchen. All you need is a chopping board, a wok and a mortar and pestle! Although the cooking class was for 3 courses,... More

We were recommended by our hotel and were blown away by how delicious the food was. The hospitality of Angela and her team were very welcoming from the moment we arrived. Appearances can be deceiving but don't let that stop you as the food speaks for itself and at a great price. We also booked a cooking class as we... More

We love coming here every time we visit Phuket. The food is just delicious, and we love the fact we can sit on the beach & sip cocktails while the kids wander along the shoreline & play in the water. See you next year Angela & team!

I live in Phuket, so I would like to think that I know most of the good Thai spots in town... I'm not sure if "very good" is accurate, but the restaurant is above "average" due to its location. The food was fine and moderately inexpensive, but I wasn't a big fan of the service to be honest. But, we... More

We visited White Orchid. Romantic dining on the beach of beautiful Kamala Beach. We enjoy some extra drinks, food and the beautiful chilled out location.
