I ordered about 4 different meals and the portions were so small that I was shocked. The food itself was basic Asian food. Did not taste good. I will not order from them again.

If you like the tastes of Asia, freshly cooked and simply presented, this is a great spot. Its popular, though.

Excellent choice as always! This place is busy every time we've been there and I can understand why. The restaurant is bigger than the others I've been to with lots of seating. The food taste great, with very friendly service.

This establishment has never disappointed my wife and I. A rich and varied menu with lots of options and most reasonably priced. Always good, friendly service just makes this a most pleasant and satisfying experience.

Description
Five years after his arrival in South Africa, Thai national Chai Lekcharoensuk walked into a Thai restaurant in Johannesburg to sample the local take on Thai cuisine. Disappointed with the meal, which hardly tasted like real Thai food, he became inspired to introduce South Africa to a more upmarket take on Thai dining, opening the first Wang Thai restaurant on Cape Town's Foreshore in 1993. Wang Thai's combination of sophisticated elegance, Thai chefs and delicate spicy food was a hit with locals and tourists alike, and following the success of the Wang Thai chain, Mr Chai saw the opportunity to open a second, more mainstream Thai restaurant chain which would combine the authenticity and flavour of Wang Thai with the convenience and simplicity of a European noodle bar. Ten years later with this vision still in mind, he opened the first Simply Asia Thai Food & Noodle Bar - a fresh, tasty and affordable alternative for diners looking to broaden their horizons with more exotic and authentic cuisine.
