Lunch, Lily Thai Cuisine, Rehoboth Beach, Beer and Wine, Delaware Beaches



It was late in the day and Michael and I were doing some errands in Rehoboth Beach.  We got hungry and stopped at Lily Thai Cuisine.  This Thai restaurant is located at 10 North 1st St. in Rehoboth Beach.  Tel. 302-227-3348.

Ever since I found this restaurant I have been enjoying Lily’s great cuisine.  I do. I really like it.  When I first started going there you could bring your own bottle (BYOB).  Then, they went through the process of applying for a liquor license and no bottles were allowed in the premises.  Therefore, it has been somewhat slow.

Next week, might be the week where they will be able to serve beer and wine.  They will start with that; see what their customers will be requesting and take it from there.  If you want to make sure they are serving beer and wine, please give them a call to 302-227-3348.  They open for lunch and dinner.  Closed on Mondays, though.

They have great lunch specials for $8.95.  Salad and half size entrees.

Michael and I ordered the Larb Gai.  I order this dish all the time.  It has ground chicken breast, tossed in lime juice, red onions, Thai herbs and fresh mint.  It is spicy and a favorite.  Michael liked it but not as much as I did.


The salad that came with the lunch specials had a very interesting dressing.  It was somewhat sweet but the concentration was cilantro.  Refreshing after the spicy Larb Gai.


Michael had the Green Curry which was hot hot and spicy.  This dish is traditionally made with green curry paste, coconut milk, Thai eggplants, and hints of Rhizome and basil.  Got good reviews from Michael.

A rhizome is the horizontal stem of a plant that is usually found underground, often sending out roots and shoots from its nods; ginger being a good example.


Mine was a Crispy Duck Ginger.  It was crispy honey duck with young ginger, onions, mushrooms, celery, garlic, ground peppers and scallions.  It had just the right amount of spice and the duck was nice and crispy.


Lily Thai is a quiet place for lunch.  I think people forget that it is there.  Anyway, I am passing the word around because I really do enjoy it.

Note:  Carry out is available.

See you… to you later…

    My wife and i have been to lily several times we love it but with so many good places to eat in Rehoboth it hard to frequent one

    For a small coastal town we do have a lot of nice restaurants; variety, as well. I remember when I lived in Bethany many years ago and you had to go to Rehoboth or O.C. to get restaurants. Now all these beach towns are offering so much, each in its own unique way. Thanks for your comments. Always appreciated.

    The lunch special menu include salad, entree, usually with rice, and spring roll…all for $8.95. I live at Rehoboth, and with so many pricey restaurants here it is truly refreshing to find a place so inexpensive for lunch with SUCH good food. It is not hard to be a regular here. For something delectable and not found on many Thai menus, including this one, ask for Nam Sad. Somewhat like Larb Gai but with chopped pork, lime juice, fish sauce, peanuts, red onion, red pepper, ginger, cilantro–truly a spicy treat. The Pad Thai is the best I have had, but I ask for a no sugar version.

    This is a little gem of a restaurant!
