Thai by the Sea is a refreshing destination for Oak Island beach vacationers to sink their teeth into something a little different. Featuring a beachy décor with interior shades of blue and lime green, but offering a menu that is filled with traditional Thai dishes, this restaurant is an interesting mix of a coastal ambiance where global flavors shine.
The restaurant is located along a busy section of Oak Island Drive, just a couple blocks away from the beach, and is therefore convenient to folks who are staying along the east Oak Island shoreline. The menu features a wealth of appetizers, soups, and salads, as well as lunch and dinner portions of nearly 30 specialty Thai entrees. For something classic, try one of the spicy curries, which includes red curry, yellow curry, Panang Curry and Pineapple Curry, or dive into a helping of Pad Thai with rice noodles. For something more adventurous, try the By the Sea Delight, which includes shrimp, scallops, and a rainbow of vegetables like snow peas, mushrooms, broccoli, and carrots. With lots of options that contain both land and sea proteins, everyone can find something to satisfy a Thai craving at the uniquely coastal Thai by the Sea.
