The Thai food here was reasonably good. It was a nice change from the typical seafood places all around this area. My husband didn't think his food was spicy enough, but mine was fine. The service was slow but friendly, because there were only two on waitstaff and one cook, while the restaurant was packed with people waiting for a... More

We have only lived in Wilmington for a little over a year, and we have tried all of the Asian places. This is the best all-Thai restaurant in the area. There are places that are better, Siagon Bistro, Indochine... but as far as straight Thai goes, these guys are unbeatable. It has some downsides: The place is tiny and not... More

My wife and I have passed the Ida Thai restaurant, in Carolina Beach, NC, several times in the past months. We never stopped in, as it was hard to envision good Thai food in a not very impressive former store front. Finally we decided to give it a chance, as we are both fans of Thai and other oriental foods.... More

If not for Trip Advisor, we never would have gone to this restaurant from looking at the outside. But the food and service are excellent. Summer 2015 we were at the beach for a week and went here twice for dinner. So on our return trip to the beach for a weekend it was our first dinner spot!

We sat outside in October. Weather was perfect. The waitress was helpful and food came to table hot and spicy. No mango dessert. :(

Visited Ida Thai last night with wife and 2 friends. It's a small, casual place with friendly atmosphere and staff who were very accommodating. Chu Chee duck is my favorite Thai meal but it wasn't on the menu so they combined their Thai red curry with their duck house special - bingo, Chu Chee duck and it was absolutely delicious.... More

We tried this place tonight....service was ok....extremely casual , almost to the point that it was too laidback service from waiters/waitresses, but they were friendly....but the food was really really good. Crab rangoon appetizer great!!!. Chicken massaman curry and cashew chicken delicious!! Lots of repeat business, locals love it, and we will definitely be back.

Thank loroOhio
