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.

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 had the spicey green curry chicken c and an appetizer that mixed Porpia Tod (Spring Roll), Kiew - Tod (Fried Wonton) Served w/ Thai... More
