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”.

Excellent Thai Food in Yaletown. Well worth a visit if you enjoy authentic Thai.
Great spot for friends and family style dining.

Simply Thai is one of our favorite restaurants and we drive from Port Moody to eat there occasionally. The food is always excellent and the service and staff are friendly and attentive.

The restaurant was nice and clean and the atmosphere was nice. We had a table of 4 and where squeezed into a table next to the kitchen. There were better table so I am not sure why they gave us this table. After about 10 minutes of sitting and talking about what we wanted to eat I began to smell someone's smelly feet. The guy at the next table had taken off his shoes and war airing out his wool socks. Ruined it for me so we asked to be moved to another spot. Staff was great and they moved us fast. Great friendly staff but I was really mad that they did not tell this guy to put his shoes back on. Would I go back yes. The food was very good.

Tom yum soup is excellent. We enjoyed the option of having tiger prawns in most dishes

The food was really good. I am not sure if they were under-staffed for lunch, because there were only 2 servers. It took a bit to get our order taken and to get our food. We will most likely come back, but probably for dinner instead of lunch next time.

Great food! Rarely do I order seafood, but I took a chance on the scallops and was not disappointed! Fantastic find!

Some of the best Thai food I’ve had outside of Thailand.

Very warm welcome upon arrival. An acquaintance was waiting for a takeout order. Patio was empty, and we were seated promptly. Donna took our drink orders and read off the list of three Chef's Specials of the day. It was truly like being in a Thai home where the cook was ready to create something unique for us. My dining companion was Gluten-Free, and she assured us that the veggie spring rolls were made with rice wrappers and rice vermicelli. Portions were more than ample for two to share, and we took home lunch for the next day. Service was attentive but not intrusive, and water glasses were refilled at regular intervals discretely. Cocktail list is extensive, with delightful twists that make the offerings unique and suited to the menu choices. The rosé wine provided the perfect counterpoint to the coconut and tamarind notes of my dishes for a mild outdoor dining experience. Dishes are not elaborately garnished as much as my other favourite Thai restaurant, however, I would rather a more substantial portion of the dish that I have chosen than an elaborate carrot carving and an orchid blossom added to fill the plate!

The spring rolls were divine, along with the cocktails such as the Mai Tai and Mango Colada. The dishes we had were tasty and they asked us how spicy we'd like them, which was a nice touch. We even got a slab of birthday cake from our server as she wanted to share it with us, which was lovely of her! Thoroughly enjoyed.

Great food and location. Close to BC place and Rogers arena. Service a bit tardy, but worthwhile dining experience!

While in Vancouver we wanted a neighborhood eatery and found this gem. It's in Yaletown section of town and has amazing thai cuisine. It is casual dining at it's best with vast menu options, everything delicious.

Food was good, service was not. I don't usually leave negative comments, but unfortunately our server did not know anything about the menus which made the experience rather disappointing.

Solid Thai in Yaletown. Tom Kha Gai soup good with a slight kick. Shredded papaya salad good, and curry was fine. Service a little lax but very nice.

Food was just average. Tiger cry beef was tasty as were the fried bananas but then they are fried bananas with ice cream. Hard to go wrong. Overall, a little disappointed because I was looking for some good tasty authentic Thai food. Not here unfortunately.

We found this restaurant based on a recommendation from a friend and we were definitely not disappointed! The food was delicious and the service was the best I've ever had. I will definitely go here again the next time I'm in Vancouver.

Servers were pretty busy, need to wait for sometime every time you want them to serve you. One of the beef dish was very tight for the meat.
