So, I am half Thai and have been to Thailand a few times --- so I have reasonable standards for what I consider good Thai food. Sadly, this place was just okay. The waitress did not speak Thai and was uncomfortably close to us - with multiple touches to our arms and back. Awkward. We ordered all food medium spicy... More

Loved the dishes! Pad Thai was excellent and so was the curry. Great place, kind hostess and friendly staff. Great experience!

We had a lovely meal here. When asking for a medium heat curry, I was not expecting it to be as hot, unbearably so. The staff added something that made it more edible so we were happy with that.

Every time I'm in Vancouver, I make a point of visiting Simply Thai. I have never been disappointed, the food is simply amazing. The owner/chef, according to the restaurant's website, was born in Bangkok and learned the art of Thai cooking from a master who teaches the chefs who serve the Thai royal family. She certainly knows her stuff, and... More

I had an enjoyable meal of Pad Thai and spring rolls. I ordered the Pad Thai with both shrimp and chicken on the advice of another. Due to the cost I likely wouldn't combine the two again, but it was terrific. Both items were very flavourful; even the sauce for the spring rolls was great! I ordered mild Pad Thai... More

Well, Vancouver is not Thailand, but Simply Thai is likely the most authentic Thai cuisine to be found in the city. Having dined here for years, the service is always consistently excellent accompanied by exceptional fare. Unfortunately, the servings are a touch on the small side compared to other local competing establishments, but the quality and flavour of the dishes... More

Living nearby, we end up eating here every few weeks, either in the restaurant or take-out. The staff are truly lovely, always greeting us warmly and being grateful for our business. The food is consistently good. Our favourite dishes are the sweet & sour chicken and the duck curry with coconut rice. It's a lovely place with a small town... More

Usually the curry dish has more sauce but turns out they serve very little amount then before. I had to order more food just to finished my rice. I was unhappy about that the server didn't even ask how was our food.

I had the worst experience today. Terrible service. I arrived with another girlfriend and we ordered our meal and were served 50 minutes later, after 2 other tables near us that arrived 30 minutes after us had already been served their lunches! When this was pointed out to 2 different staff members (one being our server) they did not take... More

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighbourhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
