We have been in Thailand since the 17th of January and have visited quite a few Thai restaurants on and off the beaches in the Patong to Surin area. 4 of us visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening around sunset. This restaurant is situated across a road from the beach outside of Kamala. The rocky beach is nice and... More

Over 25 years operating, even now looking more than simple from roadside, proofs quality. And that is, what we experienced, simple but delicious authentic Thai food cooked perfectly. Very friendly service in a family operated restaurant.

the place is tacky in a way that screams that it's completely not about the look. on the other hand, the food was great! we've ordered vegetarian pad Thai and fried rice with vegetables that was the best we had all over Thailand. good job guys.

My wife was doing a cooking class with Angela from White Orchid and, happily, I was asked along to be the taste tester. The food was outstanding, particularly the seafood red curry. After a month in Thailand, I would rate this as the best food so far. Angela is a beautiful lady who is passionate about the quality of her... More

Don't leave Phuket without eating here. We had spring rolls, fried rice, satay and prawns. Food was fresh and delicious. Owner Angela is a wonderful lady.

The food here was absolutely amazing! The best spring rolls I've ever had. Also had the squid and if was delicious. The staff were so friendly and the owner made us feel like family. The view here of the ocean is breathtaking!

Difficult to see why people are raving about this restaurant and giving it five stars. We arrived to find the place completely empty - just a few staff (?) in the restaurant playing very loud rock music on a music system. The restaurant proper on the 'land side' of the road looked very ordinary. We sat on the beach side... More

Stopped here for dinner after a drink at vanilla sky. Food was amazing and authentic. Family run and cooked with Thai love by the owners daughter on the night we came. Right on the water. A no frills place but the food is spot on, great heat on the dishes that should be spicy, and good flavor on the noodle... More

Not only were the people so kind, the food was delicious. I felt like I was at home. The family owned restaurant took a hit with Tsunami & they've managed to rebuild. Business hasnt been the same since unfortunately. Not sure why because the food was GREAT
