“so glad we found it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We like Indian food and have never found one near Rehoboth Beach. Each year we search. This time we used Trip Advisor and found this Thai restaurant, our second fave. I judge a Thai restaurant by it's Pad Thai, since it's a popular offering. And it was thoroughly delectable. Best of all, we prefer vegetarian and the choices were many! Really enjoyed chatting with the staff, too...friendly, patient, and engaging. We will definitely seek out Lily's when we return.

“" just had to go back"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Our first visit was in June. It’s October and we are back in Rehoboth for our wedding anniversary. We just had to go back to Lily's to dine. The food is so well prepared, you don't have to put anything on it, eat it just as it comes. Chicken Pad Thai (again) is superb; the shrimp fried rice was loaded with large shrimp and was awesome. You must, must, must try the “ Summerside” salad, its loaded with nicely chopped veggies and topped with slices of mango, the dressing is out of this world, it’s Lilly’s own creation, it’s a tangy/sweet cilantro dressing, goes great with this salad creation. I must say the restaurant is small and the window tables could be larger, but who cares when the food is so great. It’s confirmed Lily Thai is our go to place to dine when in Rehoboth. It will be yours too.

“Excellent Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We first went here on a Monday night, and we enjoyed it so much that we went back another night for carryout. There were two dining sections, one at street level and another a few steps down, like a split-level. We ordered a satay chicken appetizer that I shared with my husband, and our son had a tom yom soup which contained a reddish broth with shrimp, mushroom, lemon grass and cilantro. He liked it very much. For the main entrees my husband ordered crispy honey duck with basil, chili, garlic, onions and pepper. I had a sweet and spicy chile crusted eggplant with chicken and shrimp in a chile sauce. I had expected the eggplant to dominate the dish, but there were ample servings of shrimp and chicken in the dish. My son ordered nam pik pow which was a dish sauteed with carrots, onions and celery in a sweet and spicy roasted chili sauce. We all cleaned our plates. My husband and I had a beer each. The total came to $88, which as others have mentioned, seems a bit high, but the portions were nicely sized and the food really was excellent.

“Impeccable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

If you are looking for a restaurant that is clean, air conditioned, customer service oriented and with a chef who will knock your socks off, then find this gem. The restaurant does accommodate vegan diets so vegans and meat eaters can sit and enjoy a meal together. The chef takes great care in the control of the blending of flavors and spices that create a symphony of flavors that burst across the palate. Meals are a bit on the pricey side but considering the deft ability of the chef to create food magic, it is well worth the cost and highly recommended. If you never had Thai food, don't let this deter you. The wait staff will gladly explain the dishes if the printed descriptions aren't enough for you to make a selection. My traveling companions never had Thai food and the waitress was patient with providing descriptions and even inquired about our heat preference for the spices. They were both astounded with their meal selections.

“Fantastic Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Lily Thai was excellent. It was some of the best Thai food we have had in a long time. The spring rolls and panang curry were excellent. My kids also loved the Satay Chicken. We will definitely be back! I only wish we lived closer so we could eat here regularly.
