For authentic Thai cuisine, go where the locals go and head over to Big Thai – a small Thai joint that’s located in the heart of Wilmington along Military Cutoff Road. This small but intimate Thai restaurant has all the staples as well as an abundance of fresh and spicy specialties, ensuring that patrons can enjoy a full meal of something a little different without ever leaving the Cape Fear region.

While take-out is always an option, patrons may want to settle into the small but inviting dining area with soft lighting, and dark wood tables and chairs, for a lingering meal. The menu is naturally extensive, and features a world of appetizers, soups, salads, noodles, fried rice, curries, and stir fried specialties, allowing patrons to find their favorite Thai dishes with ease. Visitors who are new to Thai cuisine will want to start with a classic, like Thai dumplings or spicy lemongrass soup, and then more on to one of the delicious curries, like the yellow curry with blended carrots and potatoes, or the spicy red curry with a chili and coconut milk base.

With the ability to be light and refreshing, or hearty or decidedly filling, Big Thai is a flavorful destination for eclectic appetites of all sizes.

Wilmington Riverwalk

The Riverwalk in Downtown Wilmington is a showstopper of a stroll that is a distinctive attraction all its own. Originally conceived in the 1980s as a way to generate more interest and tourism to the Cape Fear River waterfront regions of Wilmington's historic Downtown, today the Riverwalk encompasses a full mile of scenic boardwalk, hugging the borders of the riverfront, and providing visitors with endless views and easy access to some of the Downtown's most beloved attractions.
