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.

Simply Asia is possibly the best fast food Asian food franchise in South Africa. Their product is well thought through and prepared.

We recently visited Simply Asia after they had catered an event at my husband's office ... and have been back a few times now. We love Asian food and just hadn't found a place we truly loved. Simply Asia is now our "go-to" restaurant. The portions are just the perfect size to order 2-3 entrees and share. We particularly like the Honey Chicken and Beef Roasted Chili-paste Stir Fry. The flavor combinations are delicious in these 2 dishes. The meat and veg are high quality with none of the heavy breading and sauces that can come with typical Asian foods.

Simply Asia is a firm favourite! We often come here on a Friday night or just order take aways. The food is always delicious and well-priced. The cashew, chilli noodles are my regular order.

Not the best and refined thai food, but a large choice of meals for good value. The service is efficient and it is one of the rare restaurant where you can go without reservation and have a good chance to get a table.

I came here several times, it's an authentic asian taste. Forgot to say, I am an asian. Further more, the chili with fish oil is fatastic.
