Best Thai in the area

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

The only Thai place at CB so don't expect much. They are super friendly and nice but the food lacks real Thai spirit. The pad thai, signature dish of any American Thai food joint, was like ramen noodles flavored with Ketchup. The Pad See Eww was ewe with too much salt. I'd say save the thai food craving for somewhere... More

There's really nothing remarkable about this place. Maybe I'm used to this because I have a million of these places near me, but I was unimpressed. The food was your average out of the box Chinese and Thai cuisine. I think it's popular with the locals because there aren't really any other options of this type in the area.

We walked in here on a whim and it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. The service was excellent and the menu covered my food wish list perfectly. My meal was very good with just the right amount of spice and seemed very fresh. I would eat here again!!!!

Ida Thai's fresh food never fails. I'm a local and eat here regularly because of the high quality food and generous portions. I think it's the best Thai food in all of Wilmington and though prices may seem high, you get tons of food for your money. The staff always honors our requests for no mushrooms so you can get...

We waited for a while to get seated but it was just a busy night. We ordered way too much food because we didn't expect such large portions. That was pleasant, I wish we could've taken it home but we were only staying 1 day. Their Tom Yum was too sweet and their Thai iced tea was too watered down... More

We would give this place another chance. Food was all good. I was a little confused by the won ton soup. I expected shrimp as stated and not chopped with pork into the wonton. Even so it was good. Portions were large but they gave us chicken instead of beef. Too far to drive back. It was good anyway.
