Their delivery service was great and first time ever, the guy that delivered said if we needed anything... read more

Food was prepared quick, meal was pretty good. Not blown away though - wished things were a little less bland.

By far the best meal we ate in Kitty Hawk. All the dishes we ordered were excellent and the portions were plenty so we had some to go. A small quaint place that provide great Thai food and great service all at reasonable prices. Make this your go to place for Thai!

Very authentic Thai restaurant. Pad Thai, dim sum, mango sticky rice and other favorites will not disappoint you. Family managed and friendly atmosphere, a gem in Kitty hawk!

On our way out of Nags Head we stopped at Vilai Thai Kitchen recommended by friends. The Restaurant is small, neat with few tables. My guess is the place can only seat 20-25 patrons. I have a suspicion they do a heavy take out menu based on the number of guests coming in and out. We were seated and greeted... More

This restaurant is a diamond in the rough. Hands down amazing authentic thai food. I ordered the spring rolls and the pad see ew. They were both spectacular! I asked for them to make it spicy. So they accommodated me with a caddy with multiple types of spicy thai spices and sauces to make it as spicy as I wanted.... More

You'd never guess that this little strip mall right by Kitty Hawk, NC has REALLY good and authentic Thai food. As a Thai-American who recently visited Thailand, you could tell the chef and owner were real Thai people. I ordering in Thai to see if they could understand me and they did! I ordered things spicy, very spicy for Thai... More

We had plenty of seafood at the outer banks and decided to switch it up and have Thai. Great for those with vegetarians in the family! Friendly staff and good food. Portions were big enough for us to split.
