My husband and I went to Ida Thai after an article in our local paper ran last week. We went for Friday night dinner and it was excellent.
This is a place we'd driven by for years saying "I wonder if that is any good?" The building isn't glitzy like other places on the beach, but this definitely fills the bill of "divey gem." It is very clean on the inside. The service was super prompt and very friendly, but most of all, the food was EXCELLENT!
We had Thom Yum soup, Fresh Rolls, Chicken Satay, Spicy Basil Noodles, and Massaman curry. Everything was top notch.
I've eaten at plenty of restaurants on Carolina Beach and Kure Beach, but this has to be the best I've been to, in terms of food and service. No, there's no view, but if you want actual good food for your money, as opposed to just a view, go here.
Go here anyway!
It's a tremendous value, friendly, and oh so yummy.
