Simply Thai Restaurant has been opened in Yaletown for over a decade. I still have fond memories when I first came here when I first started driving. Simply Thai neighbors an array of cuisines: The Flying Pig, Blue Water Cafe, Hapa Izakaya, Hub Restaurant and Lounge, Caché Bistro & Lounge, etc.
The atmosphere is relaxed and clean. White walls, booth seats layered with gold symbolic decor.
Tom Kha Gai 13: Sliced chicken in creamy coconut milk with mushrooms, green onion, cilantro, lemon grass, galanga root and kaffir leaves. Like a Tom Yum Soup but with some added coconut milk. The bowls says it is for two people but we each got about 3 bowls each.
Pad Thai (The Real Way) 15: Pan-fried Thai rice-noodles in tamarind sauce with shrimps, green onions, bean sprouts and ground peanuts. The noodles was never soggy and the flavors were colorful and not flat. Again, I would order hot instead of medium heat.
Pa-nang (Thick Red Curry): We had the daily special version with duck breast and fresh young coconut meat and cooked with coconut water over sautéed thick red curry with coconut milk, bell peppers & basil leaves. We only ordered medium heat and it wasn’t too spicy. Next time we will order hot.
Simply Thai is simply awesome. There are a lot of great dishes here that I can not name them all. I’ve also noticed I’ve been eating out a lot at Thai restaurants lately now that I am reviewing the pictures. Next post will be on Sawadee Thai on Main Street (Vancouver).
