Best Thai Restaurant
READERS, UPSTATE | Jasmine
3618 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 479-5618
READERS, DOWNSTATE | Lily Thai Cuisine
10 N. First St., Rehoboth Beach, 227-3348
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Jeenwong Thai Cuisine
3 S. Orange St., Wilmington, 655-5140
Traditional Thai dishes plus one secret weapon (it’s the crispy twice-cooked, ginger-spiced homemade egg rolls) are the backbone at Jeenwong Thai Cuisine, in the Wilmington Riverfront Market. Family recipes give noodle, curry and stir-fry dishes a hearty, homey feel, and chef-owner Norrawit Jeenwong Milburn brings fresh ideas and ingredients from the market daily.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Seaside Thai
19 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-9525
Local favorite Seaside Thai isn’t fancy, but its menu is full of traditional and reasonably priced fare. Its seaside grillers pair tender grilled meat and seafood with fresh steamed veggies. The Big Bowl is flavorful noodle soup. Another standout is Atlantic salmon seasoned simply with garlic, black pepper and teriyaki sauce.
CRITICS, OVER THE LINE | Sweet Basil Thai Cuisine
275 Wilmington-West Chester Pike, Chadds Ford, Pa., (610) 358-4015
Serving Thai with elegance and style is Sweet Basil Thai Cuisine, a casual little BYOB. Look no further than the signature crispy boneless duck served with tamarind-garlic sauce. But for a bit of upscale fusion, check out Asian-style tapas, like the eye-popping tuna drop martini, which combines a colorful concoction of sesame-crusted sashimi tuna with chives, ginger and Thai cucumber sauce in a martini glass.
