This place is hopping most evenings. The food is great! We stopped here and ordered takeout. There wasn't a place to wait inside because the place was packed. Our food was ready in 15 minutes. We split the Thai basil with chicken and ordered the spring rolls appetizer. This was plenty and delicious.

We had 2 great entrees which we shared, an eggplant dish which was wonderful and a duck dish. I would go back there again! Their Coconut Cake,... More

I usually do the typical Seafood places at the beach, but had craving for Thai. Ida's satisfied both my love of Thai and seafood. Great specials and perfectly prepared! Just a small little place, but packed with great food, a wonderful staff and easy access in a town that can be a little confusing to navigate. Make sure to try... More

We visit Carolina Beach/Kure Beach regularly and always make sure to have at least one dinner at Ida Thai. The service is always friendly and accommodating. My favorite item on the menu is Thai Dumpling. If you like authentic Thai food, I highly recommend Ida Thai.

I am a fan of local restaurants & the more unique the better. Ida Thai is in a restored filling station that has been painted a bright lime green, but don't let the casual setting fool you! Inside is the best Thai food in New Hanover county! I adore the owner. She is a pure delight & greets you at... More

This was a last minute choice at 9:15--and they closed at 9:30. I was impressed that they didn't bat an eye at our late arrival and were very friendly. My friend had the Pad Thai--which was ok. I had the Crispy Basil Duck. It was quite good. I had it on a heat scale of 2 of 4. The server... More
