A word from Simply Thai Restaurant & Wine Bar
This is no ordinary Thai eatery it's more like SOHO meets Southern Thailand. Very cool in style, yet very warm in spirit. There's art on the walls, world music in the air, and maybe a celebrity or three, or one of the city's top chefs having a meal. They love Grace's cooking. Grace is the Owner and Executive Chef Siriwan Rerksuttisiridach. Bangkok born and raised, she apprenticed under Penpan Sittitrai, teacher of Royal Thai Chefs for the Royal Family of Thailand. Grace wanted to give Vancouver true Thai cuisine flavoured with her own creativity. Grace and Simply Thai are the real deal. Simply Thai's selection of more than 200 different types wines from BC, Australia, California, Germany and France offers a range of wines that go perfectly with Thai dishes, including Alsatian, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. It's such a well-thought-out selection that Simply Thai has annually won New York Wine Spectator's “Award of Excellence”.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Ok ok so its not as good as being in Thailand, but if you can afford to fly to Thailand for a meal then you wont be looking on here anyways.. Ordered Thai fish cakes, (very tasty and fresh with an awesome sauce), Tiger cry beef, Pad Thai & coconut rice for main. The Pad thai was "ok", but ive had much better - it just lacked depth of flavour.. I've had melt in your mouth Tiger cry beef, this was not, it was very thin pieces, that were tasty but not something I'd reorder. Coconut rice was great (as you'd expect). Staff were lovely, & very patient as we both took a while to decide, the place is nice, I went for an early dinner so it was quiet. I'd definitely go back again, however will probably see what else is out there first."

  • "Very nice Thai restaurant. Food is delicious along with attentive service. A bit expensive for the meals. We did not sit outside as it was a little cold for the girlfriend so we missed out on the patio as I am sure it would have been much nicer seating. I was a bit surprised that they do not have chopsticks as an option for utensils for the complete experience."

  • "booked through OpenTable...but had to wait 15min for table to be ready, waited 25 min to have order actually taken, another 30 min before drinks came, appetizers came well before the drinks, then another appetizer came during dinner, only offered drinks at initial order, not again, food taste was nothing great, even sent one dish back. However, waitress did apologize for limited staff on New Years Eve, no discount offered for poor service."

  • "Boy, I wish I never came to this place. The papaya salad tasted like it was marinated in fish sauce for days with a few pale tomatoes. We sent the dish back suggesting it was too salty.The server took the dish back to the cook and brought the same one back, saying they 'fixed it'. Nope, still the same. We sent it back and certainly didn't want round 3. The beef was over cooked like it was super dehydrated or they wanted to show that they can over cook beef. The 'special green curry' was offered to us instead of their regular one on the Levitt. With as 25% premium with no mention of the price increase. Totally not with it. Tasted like day-old food court curry heavily salted again. That's all I could taste in all their dishes."

  • "Brought two friends from Calgary here tonight and ordered a wonderful bottle of Craggy Range a New Zealand white wine. The meal consisted of four dishes: #20. Pad Thai, 33. Gra-Paow Nun, 58. Goong Ma Muang, & 76. Chicken Swimming Angels. Lots of veggies, beef, chicken & shrimp. Simply delicious. Love that peanut sauce."

  • "Simply the food was not up to snuff. The Tom Yum was hot, but not sour enough. We asked for lime wedges, they only had lemon wedges. The Tom Yum was (at the Thai hottest level, perfect!) and the spring rolls were just weird with vermicelli instead of some kind of vegetables inside, Pad Thai was fine but nothing to rave about."

  • "The food is ok, but definitely overpriced. For half the price, I can get very good Thai food in Toronto. The waitress serving us is very good."

  • "Just off a plane and jet-lagged. Simply Thai was just what we needed. Informal, good quality food at a reasonable price. Met by a waitress with a typical Thai smile and food arrived promptly in good quantities. The waitress checked that we were happy several times and we had a. Excellent bottle of local wine, albeit rather pricey. Left rather early to our beds just as the restaurant began to fill up and get more of a buzz. Would recommend."

  • "If you enjoy Thai food give Simply Thai a try, I have a feeling you will enjoy it! This vist to Simply Thai was to entertain out of town business guests and the entire group raved about the food. The service, food and feel of the resturanunt were all perfect. Next time I am in Downtown Vancouver, I will go back.... Enjoy!"
