Went to Ida for my birthday on vacation with my GF. There are only a few really decent restaurants in CB that don't make feel like you are eating tourist fare. These guys actually do Thai right! The building is very modest and understated. Great food and excellent service... A real gem at the beach. GO and be impressed.

The outside doesn't look like much but inside there is great Thai food. This is an unexpected find that I revisit whenever I'm in Carolina Beach.

The place is small with not too much parking, but it was packed the night we went at 7:30. We opted to sit outside because inside was crowded. The outside view is just overlooking the parking lot and Lake Park Blvd, but it was still a nice place to be on a cool summer night. I ordered beef and broccoli... More

Within short walking distance from a large block of condos and motels, this was a great little place if you've got the the taste Thai. My companion and I shared an appetizer with spring rolls, rangoons, dumplings, and a couple others that had real flavor and weren't just fried lumps. I ordered a sweet & sour chicken/shrimp which was light... More

This is a small place with great service. The flavor was great and Spicy on a 2/4 so beware! But so good. We ordered fresh rolls with shrimp that came with a great sweet and spicy sauce. We also had the red curry with shrimp and the duck basil special. Everything was so flavorful. We fully enjoyed!

It's a small Thai restaurant with really friendly staffs and service. Food was great, they actually have an option where you can choose the Tom yum soup in a small size. If you're anything like me who loves the soup but, the only one eating it and can't finish a large bowl it would be perfect. They also have super... More

I have a special Thai restaurant at home that I consider the best of the best. I had read reviews of this one and thought I'd give it a try. It was good and the waitress was great! I had a spicy noodle dish which was good and a homemade chicken noodle soup. My waitress's name was Chandler and she... More

Ida Thai is a local gem tucked away in a small shop in Carolina Beach. The food is great! We go there as often as we can

The food is ok but expensive. The service is good but the food is only passing for Thai cuisine. The Tom Yum soup was too sweet and the other dishes were just ok. I may have a higher than average standard for Thai food since I have been to Thailand and regularly eat at Thai restaurants when I travel. But... More
