“BEST in the world!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We stayed just up the road and came to eat here almost every night! The spring rolls are to die for and really are the best in the world! We even got a big hug from the staff the second time we ate there as she was so happy that we returned. The cocktails are great too. The pad Thai is the best I've eaten in Thailand too. A must see place!

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We were told about Angela and the White Orchid from my sister who had been there. We found it was down the road from where we were staying so went for lunch one day, the tables on the beach made for a wonderful spot to enjoy the views. We ordered the Ginger fillet fish and it was so good that we had to come back the next night for dinner to have it again!! We also did Angela's cooking class and have made several dishes since returning home. Angela is very welcoming and friendly and we would recommend both the cooking classes and the food!

“excellent thai food”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We were staying in Kamala and looking for a good authentic restaurant. We tried a few places before, but they were just ok. when we were almost giving up on finding a good restaurant in Kamala we found White Orchid. Their food is amazingly delicious! Everything is very fresh and tasty! Their spring roll is a must try and their noodles are absolutely great. they use freshly made noodles so it's very flavorful.
The food is not the only great thing about this restaurant. The owner Angela is a lovely lady who welcomes you to the restaurant so kindly. We really enjoyed talking to her while eating the great food she made.
We loved her food so much that we went backt the next day to take a cooking lesson from her.
We'd love to go back to Kamala just to go back to the restaurant!!

“The best Thai food I have eaten!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

I have eaten here 10 or more times and usually travel from Kata to get there when Holidaying in Phuket. Simply the best Thai I have had... & I eat it often!
This Restaurant is currently undergoing a rebuild and renovation, so a small area to eat, but go anyway! Eat on the beach!
Highly recommended!! Enjoy

“Great Thai food, great value, heart warming service.”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a great place for Thai food in Phuket. White orchid is really a place worth visiting. Located at the corner of a condo. This restaurant is still standing strong after everything was lost after tsunami. Serving classic Thai food like the aromatic sweet prawn in Thai green curry, crispy spring roll and really nice Thai fried rice. Everything's home made and cooked from the heart. I will definitely visit this humble restaurant again when I am back next time.

Thanks Angela!
