10 out of 10! The White Orchard was the highlight of our trip. The restaurant is right on the beach in a quiet bay near Kamala. The atmosphere is very relaxed and homely. We visited three times during our stay in Phuket. Once for dinner, where we were so impressed by the food (the best Thai food we've ever tasted) we booked into Aunty Angela's cooking class. The class was fantastic, teaching us how to make classic red and green curries, pad Thai , Tom Yum and mango sticky rice. Aunty Angela and her family were so warm and welcoming - we had so much fun! On our final day we returned for a special Thai BBQ buffet, complete with fireworks! You have to visit the White Orchid when in Phuket. A hidden gem that cannot be missed! Thank you Angela!

I was looking for something fun to do that was close to Hyatt Regency while my husband was busy with his business meetings. It was just what I was looking for!

Aunty Angela and her daughter were so sweet and loving. They run a simple restaurant because they are trying to recover still from the misfortune of the tsunami in 2004... but she really takes her time explaining every recipe, fresh ingredients, and super tasty food! Definitely a great experience that couldn't have been any more authentic and tasty. Auntie even offered to gives us a ride back to our hotel since it started raining. Her daughter cleaned up their car for us and she took us! Lovely people.Can't wait to go home and cook Auntie's delicious and easy recipes for friends and family.

Loved the food, had their lobsters which were priced really great, and delicious, green curry was great, but not enough sauce, pad thai and papaya salad was also yum... great service they let us drink our own wine and gave us desserts

So good, we went twice!!

Spent a lovely evening and then a long lazy lunch overlooking the sea. This is my kind of place. The food was amazing. I had prawn curry for my evening meal which was delicious. For lunch we had fish cakes and spring rolls washed down with several chilled bottles of Chang. Heaven.
