Even though this is the best time of the year for dining out in Surf City, we decided to do takeout. We ordered the basil beef and red pepper chicken. Both dishes were very good, tender meat and lots of flavor.

Had high hopes for this place but the food just didn't come through. Started with two soups which weren't bad but seemed more like spicy leftovers concoctions (which is not entirely a bad thing but these were just okay). A truly bad sign was that the waitress whispered that the beef was always overdone. That in mind, we got green... More

Very good Thai food (and we have eaten many meals in Thailand, so feel we can compare), excellent service and nice decor. My husband and I have eaten here twice now and have liked it very much. When my husband asked for "Thai hot," the food actually was that hot! It is tucked into a strip mall, but worth the... More

Mu husband and I visited The Thai Grille again last night and as always, we were not disappointed. The Crab Wontons were a great start and for dinner, we had the Shrimp and Ginger Stir Fry. It was fantastic! The owner took time to come out and ask if our meal was good. That is not typical in a lot... More

The food was not quite London, but was the best Thai I've had in America... We got takeout, twas easy, and most of the dishes tasted great... Could have been a little more raw on the tuna though...

One of our favorite restaurants just off the island in Surf City. The food is always great. The staff is very nice and always accommodating. Price is very reasonable. Would highly recommend!! Try the drunken noodles if you'd like something different. My husband loves the steak.

Yes, this restaurant surprises. It's in a strip mall to start with. The food is excellent, service was excellent, and prices were fair. Definitely go here for a change of pace.

I vacation in the area 2-3 times a year and was thrilled to see they are now open on Sundays. Excellent food, reasonable prices, service good. A great alternative to your typical fried/broiled seafood platter beach restaurant. Hours posted on the door say closed Sunday, as do most review sites. They have a street side sign we saw, glad we... More

I'm usually not picky, but the food was really bad. Thai food should be more than pouring soy sauce onto something and then cooking it to death. Decoration and service were fine though.

Visited while on vacation, and when the sever informed us they had run out of chicken, We were...thinking oh boy. Turns out the food was delicious. Our server was polite and attentive. Nice alternative to pizza and burgers.
