“Our Favorite Thai Restaurant”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We were here last Wednesday night (10/16) for another wonderful meal in a friendly and quite environment. One blessing of Big Thai II is it atmosphere. The dark setting encourages quiet and reflective conversations. This I one of the unique restaurants in Wilmington where you can go for a quiet conversations with friends. Other restaurants will wood floors, no drapes, low ceilings are just plain loud with too many customers.

This evening I had a variety of appetizers, too many, but I took the access home. I like their wine corkage fee - $8.00 if you bring in your own wine. If you drink two glasses of wine with dinner, you are saving money.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

“Not the greatest experience”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Well, we went to this Thai restauant because someone said it was better than the other great Thai one in town. Atmoshere=bad. Annoying vanilla candle smell. Green curry was good but portion size really small. Pad Thai left my son wanting the other restaurant and hungry. And we had the world's worst waitress ever. Was she related to the owner? Seemed annoyed to have to do her job. Overall the quality of the food was good, may go back for lunch, not dinner. Would rather wait 2 hours and have nicer ambiance and better food.
