Stopped here with friends and it was a much appreciated surprise compared to most of the other typical beach restaurants. The food was absolutely delicious but be warned - it was much spicier than any other Thai restaurant I've ever eaten at! They also gave really small rice portions in comparison to the rest of the food which didn't help... More

We are so lucky to have a great Thai place here on our little sandbar! Always a good meal and very friendly staff. We order for delivery fairly often.

Excellent food. Big portions for a good price. Awesome service. Resturant was a little small, but otherwise great atmosphere. Great little find. Definitely recommend and will be returning.

We stayed across the street at the Hilton Garden Inn, and decided to try Vilai Thai rather than pack our things from the beach and pool and drive somewhere. This made for a great takeout lunch. We had a variety of dishes, noodle and non-noodle based, and were not disappointed. This is solid Thai food which you will no doubt... More

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
