My family was very happy with the Thai food at Vilai. We were the only customers for lunch so seating a service were not a problem at all. Large portions, all flavored well. The surprise was the Thai General Tso Chicken. Never had Tso quite like that. Chicken was crispy with perfect sauce. Plenty of vegetables. Dumpling and wonton soup... More

This is a tiny restaurant but what it lacks in size it makes up in flavor! Our dinner was absolutely fantastic. The flavor and quality of the food was astounding. Simply top notch all the way around. I enjoyed a green curry chicken that was simply awesome and worth twice the price. The staff were excellent and very friendly. Definitely... More

The family decided on southern BBQ but I am not fond of stuff swirling in grease. My husband stopped to get me thai summer rolls in rice paper and spring rolls. Outstanding and very fresh!

My first experience with Vilai and family was back in the 90's when they were in a different location. Upon my recent return to the OBX, after years of absence, I was thrilled to find Vilai's Thai Kitchen. Aroy Dee Mak! Always great food. I have many Thai friends, have spent hours at a Thai Buddhist Temple in my former... More

I live in the area several months out of the year, I frequent Vilai's establishment, consistently good food, hands down the best Thai in the area, and among the best I have had in North Carolina. Curry's, Noodles, and appetizers are always consistent. Great atmosphere for people with busy lives to relax for a few minutes.

My wife and I ate here last year on our way to Corolla and I remebered the food but forgot to review it. We went there again this year with our daughter and grand daughter because the other place we wanted was open only for Dinner (Brine and Bottle). We got there and were seated right away. We ordered the... More

We crossed the street from the Hilton Garden Inn and enjoyed an excellent dinner at the Vilai Thai Kitchen. We split an entrée and added spring rolls. The server was friendly and efficient.

We were within walking distance so we ate here one evening on our trip. The restaurant is very small, so during busy season I'm sure waiting is involved. We arrived at 8 pm and got the last table. Our dinner was pretty good, the Pad Thai even on low was spicy, it could have used more sauce. The fried rice... More
