We had a take-out dinner from Vilai Thai. We had a curry and shrimp fried rice. It was ok, not really special. I will say they were generous with the shrimp in the fried rice. Service was fast.

We spend a fair amount of time in the outer bank but never stopped here to try the Thai food until recently. We enjoyed the brisk, personal service and a good selection of lunch specials.

We recently moved to the Outer Banks from New Jersey and have been a little disappointed by the ethinic food restaurants in the area. We are SO happy we found Vilai Thai!! The food is absolutely delicious, obviously freshly prepared. It is a small restaurant, but very, very clean. The service is great, staff very friendly. They also have a... More

We were trying to go to the High Cotton BBQ Restaurant and it was closed. So - we saw this little restaurant and gave it a try. The food was amazing with a great menu. We have all agreed to go back tomorrow. It was that good!

Three of us stopped by for a late lunch at 3PM on a Sunday and were immediately greeted by the owner's son and seated at a booth; he offered us the opportunity to order from either the lunch or dinner menus. This restaurant has about seven tables, is nicely decorated, and offers plenty of tasty food cooked by our server's... More

I eat a lot of Thai food so I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh and wonderful the food was on the beach. We had the papaya salad, Bangkok Beef Jerky with sticky rice and coconut soup. All were amazing and spiced just right. This restaurant beats any restaurant I have eaten at in major metro cities. Service and prices... More
