“Fabulous Thai Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Simply Asia is a tiny little gem of a restaurant tucked away in the Somerset Mall food court. As a family, we dine there often and are never disappointed. If you're looking for seriously tasty Asian cuisine, then this is the place to find it.

“Excellent place for spicy hot food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Liked this place for asian food. Hot and spicy specially when the weather is cold. Everytime when I come back here from tired day, I like the food at this place compared to other places. Most places have pizzas and pastas wherein here here one can enjoy proper asian food. Their menu is interesting

“Love it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Not the best looking restaurant and a big cramped!! But I love Asian/ oriental cuisine and must say I really enjoy the if food! Made by Thai chefs and the noodles 509 and 514 are delicious or the green curry is also great. All dishes packed with flavour

“Unpleasant experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

We used to go to Simply Asia regularly. Unfortunately this time was not a pleasant experience at all.
Upon arrival the two waitresses were looking at us and did not bother to stop swapping money until they were finished, right at the front of house.
The one asked if it is take away or sit down, and I replied that we would like to sit down if it is not too much trouble for them.

We placed out orders and waited a while for our food, when it arrived it was cold and very tasteless. We ordered chocolate spring rolls for dessert to share. They were tiny little things, nothing like the picture. The pastry was tough and not cooked properly.

This was really an unpleasant experience and it seems that they have gone backwards. When we left the manageress on duty was doing admin work right at another customer table in front of all the customers in the shop. How is this even acceptable?
