This little restaurant that’s tucked away along Carolina Beach Road has a vast menu that includes all the favorites and a few unique specialties, which is sure to give newcomers an all-encompassing primer on just how delicious Thai food can be.
The menu is divided into appetizers, soups and salads, noodles & fried rice, stir-fries, curries & sides, and house specialties, and diners will want to arrive with a big appetite to feast on a big multi-course meal. New patrons will want to start with a light and perennial favorite, like steamed dumplings with chicken and shrimp, Thai spiced wings, or crab rangoons, and then move on to a hot cup of Tom Yum Soup with tomatoes and mushrooms, or a house salad with peanut or ginger dressing. For the main course, the sky is the limit, but the house specials like the curry duck, the Thai spiced chicken, the spicy catfish or the Thai softshell crabs are all local favorites. Wonderfully colorful, and featuring all the time-tested curries, rice, noodle and main dishes that Thai fans love, the Thai Spice is heating up Wilmington’s appetite for fresh Asian cuisine.
