I have been before one time, my family has been many times. I had the spicy basil )pad ka praw) with shrimp and I ask for it to be mild. I could have gone more spicy, it was good.

We have been coming to CB for a long time and never expected to find this here. It is amazing. Here were 8 of us and everyone JD a wonderful meal. The pad Thai was amazing and the salmon Panang was unbelievable! We really wanted to try the coconut cake, but the portions were so big we were all stuffed!... More

Frequent diner for hidden gems in the Thai cuisine and this one fits the bill. The Spicy Basil was as good as any and service was excellent with very reasonable prices....we will be back next time we are here!

Ida Thai is an unexpected pleasure at Carolina Beach amidst the cheap surf shops and the usual beach-y fish joints. It is painted pink and chartreuse, but don't hold that against this place. We had a wonderful meal packed with yummy Thai flavors. I ended my meal with traditional coconut cake which was fluffy, light and probably one of the... More

We stopped in to get take out one night while on vacation. We have a 5 mo old so it was nice to just get something to eat on the balcony of our condo and watch the ocean. We got tons of food with our order and everything we got we enjoyed. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Didn't think I would find mouth watering good Thai food in a beach area, but I did with Ida. Staff is friendly and everyone's dishes were incredible. The unfiltered sake was delicious, the sliced cucumber was a flavorful touch. Definitely recommend!

Okay, nothing fancy from outside or inside but clean and functional. I care less about the atmosphere when you are serving up yummy classic Thai food for a great price! Our server was able to answer our group's questions about the menu with ease and food and drinks came out in a timely manner. Our group dined on the spicy... More
