We eat at Big Thai often and always enjoy the food. Menu has lots of items to choose from and every item I've had has been really good and the service is fast and friendly.

Much nicer inside than outside. I was pleasantly surprised. The drunken noodles were really good. I left satisfied.

This is the best spot in Wilmington for Pad Thai. My bride and I have been coming here for quite some time and it is just so consistent. Tons of food and great atmosphere. Would eat here every day if I could afford to.
