Fantastic food!

We have dined in at Simply Thai a few times and each was a good experience. Now we typically call our order in for pickup, but not for the Wallace Ave location since it takes them 30 to 45 minutes for the order to be ready. Instead, we place it at the Shelbyville location and it only takes them... read more

Having moved recently away from Kentucky, this is one of the restaurants I will miss. The moon sen pad thai is my favorite, but the curries are all excellent, as is everything else. It's busy on weekends and even though they moved to a larger space, they are packed. Pick a weekday.

This is another restaurant that we frequent whenever we visit my daughter here in Louisville. They eat here fairly regularly. They can adjust the heat to your liking for each entrée. Not had a bad meal yet!

I have been a patron of Simply Thai for years, since their beginning in their first small location in St. Mathews, but I've had an bad experience with the consistency of the food and service at the Middletown location, and I will no longer support Simply Thai. On several occasions the chicken in the grilled salad has not been fresh.... More

This place is always crowded. Please make a reservation if you are planning to dine here especially for dinner service. The food and service is decent. I would recommend pad thai noodles.

We have been here a few times and last night we found the trip to Simply Thai to be about average. Service was average with kind of a rushed waitress who dumped some very weak tea on the table and then a few minutes later showed back up and said, what do you want! I had the basil entree with...

Our party of 8 dined at Simply Thai on a Saturday night. The food was great, but we were literally there for over 2 hours. The food all came out at different times and several people were done eating before I ever got my meal. When we complained about this to the manager, he was quite hostile and aggressive. I... More

My husband and I got take out from there tonight. He waited for almost half hour while the food was sitting on the counter top. Finally the hostess realized he was waiting and handed him the food. We got curry puffs and one did not have any filling in it. This isn't the first time we received bad service at... More

Stopped by here on a recommendation...don't waste your time, go get pizza across the parking lot! Food was average, the wait staff (except Tyler, he came to the rescue and was awesome) average, and the bartender was more interested in defending his mixology skills than meeting the customer's desire for a better tasting drink..what a jerk. Then to top things... More

Simply Thai had never let me down. Great food, good service, and decent prices. I've eaten Thai food all over the US and always return here. Try the pad Thai with sweet potato noodles. I don't recommend the tvp in curries. It's too dry.
