What a surprise--great Thai food at a beach town!

As the title suggests, we were very pleasantly surprised. From the road the place looks like a hole-in-the-wall, the room is spartan, but don't let this deceive you. The food was excellent, inexpensive, and well-prepared. The service was courteous and attentive. We are not used to finding great... read more

We needed a quick pickup dinner after an unexpected trip to CarolinaBeach . As lovers of Thai food we called ahead and ordered the Garlic pepper chicken and Beef and brocolli dinners which came with the expected boxes of white rice. When home I sautéed the white rice in EVOO along with diced onion and garlic. The entrees were worth... More

Bought a condo in Carolina Beach in December 2014. Like to shop / eat local so I gave Ida Thai a try. Environment nothing to write home about. However, food is great and staff friendly and attentive.

I was able to pick up an order of snow crab fried rice fifteen minutes after placing my order. It's on the expensive side, especially given that it's an average portion, but it was delicious, which is more than I can say for the places I've tried in town so far.

The meal I had here was great as was my girlfriends. It is a small place, not very fancy on the inside or out but the food and service is what this place is about. Our server was super sweet too and very attentive to her customers. It was a very pleasant meal and experience.

Reviews drove us to this restaurant. The excellent ratings are an understatement. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was delightful. The only downside is the dining room. It's a converted gas station(!) and it shows. They should move to an actual restaurant then it'll be perfect.

We've eaten at Thai restaurants all over the country and in Thailand. This was not great tasting Thai food. We might go again but with much lower expectations, avoiding certain dishes. We had the tom Ka Kai (chicken in coconut soup) which had an overpowering sweet lime juice / fish sauce flavor. We also had the papaya salad which also... More
