The food here is authentic. YOu can order the food as either mild, medium, or hot. I normally can eat hot, but ordered medium just in case. Their medium is closer to hot. So don't order hot unless you really like hot. The only issue with the restaurant was it was quite hot inside. Not sure if their AC is not working, but the temperature was a bit too warm for me and my guest.
Spectacular curries, great service our go-to spot in Vancouver. I've been coming to Simply Thai for years now and it never disappoints. C6 - the wild salmon panang is a must have.
Came to the restaurant in the evening of Friday. We waited for almost half an hour for the food to come after we ordered. The appetizers were good. We order mango salad, spring rolls and a bowl of tom yum soup to share. As mango salad was the chef special of the day and we were not told about the price when we ordered, it turned out to be $18 on the bill( same price as the entree, and the portion is too small for the amount we paid), probably won’t be ordering if I know it for next time. Other than that, my favorite dish was tom yum soup.
As for the entrees, we ordered two. Probably they had been sitting on the kitchen counter for a long time, the pad Thai noodle was cold already when they were served. We didn’t bother to ask to reheat them because it would probably take a long time to have our food again. Noodle was too sweet.
This was the first time for me to try out this restaurant. Probably won’t be back for awhile, but may come back just for the tom yum soup.
Nice restaurant and the service was excellent. Food was very tasty and just as we liked it spice-wise. Great value for money.
While the food was good, we were disappointed that hardly any of the wines on the menu were available and expected more from a Thai restaurant that also bill’s itself as a wine bar.
Excellent Thai Food in Yaletown. Well worth a visit if you enjoy authentic Thai.
Great spot for friends and family style dining.
Simply Thai is one of our favorite restaurants and we drive from Port Moody to eat there occasionally. The food is always excellent and the service and staff are friendly and attentive.
The restaurant was nice and clean and the atmosphere was nice. We had a table of 4 and where squeezed into a table next to the kitchen. There were better table so I am not sure why they gave us this table. After about 10 minutes of sitting and talking about what we wanted to eat I began to smell someone's smelly feet. The guy at the next table had taken off his shoes and war airing out his wool socks. Ruined it for me so we asked to be moved to another spot. Staff was great and they moved us fast. Great friendly staff but I was really mad that they did not tell this guy to put his shoes back on. Would I go back yes. The food was very good.
Tom yum soup is excellent. We enjoyed the option of having tiger prawns in most dishes
The food was really good. I am not sure if they were under-staffed for lunch, because there were only 2 servers. It took a bit to get our order taken and to get our food. We will most likely come back, but probably for dinner instead of lunch next time.
Great location! Tasty food. It was on the spicy side. The ambiance was lovely and great service!
Great food! Rarely do I order seafood, but I took a chance on the scallops and was not disappointed! Fantastic find!
Some of the best Thai food I’ve had outside of Thailand.
Very warm welcome upon arrival. An acquaintance was waiting for a takeout order. Patio was empty, and we were seated promptly. Donna took our drink orders and read off the list of three Chef's Specials of the day. It was truly like being in a Thai home where the cook was ready to create something unique for us. My dining companion was Gluten-Free, and she assured us that the veggie spring rolls were made with rice wrappers and rice vermicelli. Portions were more than ample for two to share, and we took home lunch for the next day. Service was attentive but not intrusive, and water glasses were refilled at regular intervals discretely. Cocktail list is extensive, with delightful twists that make the offerings unique and suited to the menu choices. The rosé wine provided the perfect counterpoint to the coconut and tamarind notes of my dishes for a mild outdoor dining experience. Dishes are not elaborately garnished as much as my other favourite Thai restaurant, however, I would rather a more substantial portion of the dish that I have chosen than an elaborate carrot carving and an orchid blossom added to fill the plate!
The spring rolls were divine, along with the cocktails such as the Mai Tai and Mango Colada. The dishes we had were tasty and they asked us how spicy we'd like them, which was a nice touch. We even got a slab of birthday cake from our server as she wanted to share it with us, which was lovely of her! Thoroughly enjoyed.
Very delicious thai food, great service, good wine and a nice ambience!
Food was descent for price Restaurant was quite smelly, really heavy fish sauce smell. Waitress was nice overall good experience
Great food and location. Close to BC place and Rogers arena. Service a bit tardy, but worthwhile dining experience!
While in Vancouver we wanted a neighborhood eatery and found this gem. It's in Yaletown section of town and has amazing thai cuisine. It is casual dining at it's best with vast menu options, everything delicious.
Food was good, service was not. I don't usually leave negative comments, but unfortunately our server did not know anything about the menus which made the experience rather disappointing.
Solid Thai in Yaletown. Tom Kha Gai soup good with a slight kick. Shredded papaya salad good, and curry was fine. Service a little lax but very nice.
Food was just average. Tiger cry beef was tasty as were the fried bananas but then they are fried bananas with ice cream. Hard to go wrong. Overall, a little disappointed because I was looking for some good tasty authentic Thai food. Not here unfortunately.
We found this restaurant based on a recommendation from a friend and we were definitely not disappointed! The food was delicious and the service was the best I've ever had. I will definitely go here again the next time I'm in Vancouver.
Servers were pretty busy, need to wait for sometime every time you want them to serve you. One of the beef dish was very tight for the meat.
Very disappointed, very noise, bad service , food are no good
The food was tasteful but somehow the place felt unwelcoming, maybe because it was cold, really cold inside and also the servers were not really inviting and nice. A note on the side, next time an alarm screams in the restaurant for almost 10 minutes you might want to explain to your custo.ers whats going on.
Second time here. First time was outstanding. This time not so much. Food quality (tough, chewy meat, basic spice and flavoring) was mediocre and waiter service is slipping. Friendly staff but really needs to focus on being better than average to prosper in Vancouver. Maybe just a bad night but will think twice about returning.
As a break in tradition we selected Simply Thai for Christmas Eve dinner. All the dishes were exceptional and way beyond the ordinary Thai offerings.
We hadn't been to Sinply Thai for many years. Happy to discover the food is still authentic Thai and delicious; prices a tiny bit high. Service was good and fast. Room hasn't changed a bit.. but could use a little freshening up.
This is one of our regular stops for dinner. The food is always top quality and pricing for 4, including 15% tip was $146.00 this time. We had lots of food and yummy too.
Excellent if you want to get away from the heavy steaks - and the cheap chines food.
Thanks for a very nice dinner.
Food was amazing and the service was excellent.
Visiting Vancouver from San Francisco and was told this was authentic… Loved every bit!
Good food, the place is not quite big, but good ambiance !
Good Thai food. I especially like the spicy Som Tum. The tamarind flavor in the chicken fish was good too. Service was excellent
Food wasn't as good as I remember it being. Was really salty and all dishes came out at one time would have been nice to stagger them a little. Great service though space needs a facelift.
Good food not matched by initial service. Was ignored by two staff at the entrance when we arrived - both chatted together and eventually walked off. Then subsequently asked by three different people if we had a booking(we did) even after we were seated by a host. Final server that we had for most of the evening was very good.
Food delivered cold. No rice served with sweet and sour chicken. We seemed to ignored by wait staff.
The seafood soup was just finger licking. I brought the leftover home. Red curry shrimp is also one of the best dishes here. Every flavor is a treat to your taste buds. Will definitely visit again.
