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.
