“Simply not what it once was!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

I used to be Simply Thai's staunchest fan but on a recent visit found that it has sadly lost it's spicy, fragrant edge.

The now infamous but always feisty chef owner was absent from the kitchen and the menu has assumed a decidedly pretentious air - Amuse-bouche? Intermezzo? - really, how very recherché!

Shame

“Superb Food well deserved awards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

The food is fab especially jungle Thailand green curry and ribs and dim sum. The beef curry was a favourite of the party of 8 too. Deserts are a bit pricey for what they are and drinks are expensive. Go for the Thai starters and mains you won't be disappointed. The reviews slating this restaurant are probably the competition.

“Gorgeous authentic flavoured food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The place has recently been done up after being on Gordon ramseys f word so the new setting is lovely although that doesn't really matter considering how delicious the food is. It reasonably priced not cheap but for the delicious flavours its worth it.

“a highly overrated place with horrible service and mediocre food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is a grossly overrated place. Don't go there unless you want to ruin your evening.

We had to wait for more than an hour for starters to arrive, and never got around to wait for the main courses because it did not materialize even after we'd been there for two and half hours. When we asked for the bill and refused to pay the service charge, they had the cheek to ask for a written explanation on why we didn't want to pay it and started getting aggressive.

“Thai restaurant to enjoy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Being a lover of asian quisine, it's sometime hard to satisfy my demands on food. I had this restaurant recommended to me by a friend of mine and there are no regrets to be had. Food is simply awesome, no doubts there, place feels cosy and service is decent. I went there 2 times after my first visit and it was basically the same experience, which is a good thing. Whenever you feel like having some thai food, this might as well be your restaraunt of choice.
