Wonderful, cozy, authentic Thai restaurant. Have eaten Thai food all over the East Coast and this ranks up there with the best. Their curries are awesome...soups outstanding....service is always top shelf and friendly. Getting ready to go have lunch there....my mouth is watering. Bye!

I was invited to go there one Saturday with a couple who are both chefs! Out of everything on the beach they recommended Ida Thai Cuisine and are repeat customers. This was my first time eating Thai of which I enjoyed it. The owners were there and very friendly and attending to every request. Its not a huge restaurant but... More

We have eaten several times and just wanted to share. Very good food. Love the spicy thai basil noodles and the fresh rolls.

We stopped at Ida Thai for lunch on our way home from Carolina Beach--I had read the reviews here and thought it sounded worth a try. It was excellent! We loved all of our food--we got the fried shrimp thingies (don't remember the name), wonton soup, spicy basil pork, and two cups of chicken noodle soup that came as appetizers.... More

I am a duck eating machine...If duck is on the menu, I'm in. The Roasted Duck at Ida Thai is probably the best duck preparation I have ever had. Crispy outside and moist inside. A freakin' masterpiece. The Spicy vegetable rice is killer as well...We eat there regularly and have not had a bad or even less than great experience.

First time in Carolina Beach off season and the place feels ghost town-ish. - but thankfully we found Ida Thai. What a fabulous find. The service was quick, informative, and our waitress spot on in her guidance on spiciness levels. We had the fresh rolls (ok) three flavor crispy fish(amazing sweet spicey sauce wth peas,mscallions, cilantro with fresh fried flounder... More

Mom and Pop operation. Hes is in the back , she in the front. We find the food fresh and tasty on each of our visits. No "cookie cut" food. I had soft shell crabs my wife had garlic pork with vegies. The place is very small, clean, and provides good service. A real bargin especially during lunch.

What a great couple that owns this place. We had the pad thai and red curry chicken to go. They gave me some hot soup because I was sick. It open my nose to breath. This place is small in size but they have a big heart for their customs. The food was great.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, and it is small, but we recently tried some take out here and were pleasantly surprised. We tried about 5 different dishes for a large family gathering, and everyone enjoyed the pad thai, curry, noodles, etc. Good spices, heat. Will definitely try it again. Reasonable.

We have lived in the Carolina Beach area for four years and have regrettably driven by this restaurant numerous times. We were greeted enthusiastically by one of the owners and seated in this tiny unassuming restaurant. She recommended some of her favorite dishes and we were not disappointed in our choices. Panang Curry dish was unusually savory with hints of... More
