Started by two distinct restaurants which were established in both the United States and Thailand, Southern Thai is a fresh little restaurant that combines Thai cuisine with a heavy dose of southern hospitality. Located just south of Wilmington, this restaurant has a fantastic lunch, dinner and drink menu that is sure to turn heads, and make any newcomer a convert to the delightful flavors of Thailand.

The menu takes up a good three pages, and is categorized by appetizers and soups, salads, fried rice, stir fries, noodle soups and dishes, and Thai curries. Patrons who have never sampled a full menu of Thai cuisine before will want to arrive hungry to enjoy a full multi-course meal. Start with something light and traditional, like the Crab Rangoons, the Chicken Satay with peanut sauce, vegetable spring rolls, or the Southern Thai Platter which is a fine combination of all of the above. For dinner, head for the curries which can be spicy or mild, and can boast a selection of proteins like shrimp, chicken, beef, tofu, duck and even soft shell crab. Combining a touch of southern influence with genuinely traditional Thai flavors and delicacies, Southern Thai is a prime destination for new visitors to enjoy a truly hospitable taste of Thai cuisine.

Cape Fear River

Cape Fear River

While Wilmington visitors will arguably enjoy the best views of the Cape Fear River, this distinctive river actually spreads out throughout most of the coastal and piedmont regions of North Carolina, originating in the town of Haywood, just north of Greensboro, NC, and flowing all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.
