Big Thai is the best! It is an absolute family favorite and "go to" restaurant. I recommend ordering: Pad Thai, basil rolls, Larb, crab angels, pot stickers, chicken satay, Thai dumplings, and for the best dessert ever...their homemade coconut cake!!!

We've been to Big Thai 2 a number of times and have also ordered in. The taste of the food is inconsistent. I believe that they have different chefs on the weekend and at the beginning of the week. in general weekend food tastes better. We went on a Sunday night. Spring rolls were very good and crispy. Coconut soup... More

We went to Big Thai last night for our third visit. My wife loves soft shell crab, and they serve the best in town. Pair it with their green curry and you've got a delicious dish. They always have great sounding specials. I tried the Bangkok Bay Seafood combo. There was soooo much seafood in it: HUGE tasty shrimp, nicely... More

Very good food, nice restaurant. Relatively new owners have gotten the place in great, clean shape. The menu is standard thai food, love the larb gai and the tom yum soup. Noodle dishes are great too. We get take out frequently, and the food is always great when we get home.

New to the Wilmington area and love trying new restaurants. This one is a big disappointment. I ordered Pad Pik. All veggies had to have been nuked (you can tell by the washed out color and lack of any flavor.) The chicken was absolutely bone dry. It's sad really because we were the first customers of the day. She did... More

Dear Tewksbaby, Customer service is our priority and we reviewed your complaint with our staff. Your 1 star rating is atypical based on our customer feedback, we've had only one other 1 star rating 2-1/2 years ago. We do not microwave cook any of menu items, your Pad Pik vegetables were freshly stir fired over an open flame. High temp... More

We stumbled upon Big Thai kind of by accident, and now we are regulars. Probably our favorite restaurant in Wilmington. The food is fantastic, the service great, authentic and fresh. We love it! I could eat here every day. My hands down favorite is the Spicy Basil tofu and chicken dish. The flavors and freshness of the dishes are one... More

First off, I found the candle smell too overpowering when I entered the dining room area. Orders took too long to arrive (and that was with just ordering water and no appetizer to start). People around us looked just as annoyed as they waited endlessly for their food to arrive. When my Pad Thai finally appeared, it was just 'okay';... More
