The clincher to the whole evening was when our waitress came over to our table and asked us not so politely to LEAVE because they were busy and needed the table. We had only been there for 1 hour. I couldn't believe it. We had made RESERVATIONS almost a month ago and they were trying to clear our table for people without reservations. Not only that, but this was obviously a special occasion (we had told them this beforehand)
We were all so shocked that we did get up. A few minutes later, after we had, left two of us decided to go back to talk to the manager. We were greeted by our very own waitress, who obviously knew we were upset. The hostess also came over and snobbily once again asked what we wanted. We said that we wanted to talk to the manager. They paused, exchanged glances, and then informed us that there was no manager that night. NO manager on a busy Saturday night??? Right! We informed them we would be calling in to speak to the manager today. A different girl who was with our group is in charge of that, so I’m not sure yet how that will play out. Needless to say, we will simply never go back to Simply Thai again.

As for the food, it was extremely tasty and spicy. I opted for the next to highest level of spicy (be careful you will feel it if you want it to be hot). The secret to the tastiness of the food: the chef uses only fresh local produce supplemented by spices imported straight from Thailand. The chef was trained in the finest schools in Thailand and she apprenticed with the teacher of the chefs for the Royal Family in Thailand. Everything is authentic and they take no shortcuts.
My only complaint: the service was pretty bad. We had to ask for water a couple of times and we didn't get much help from the waitress. She always seemed distracted.
Having said that, the food was so good I still wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.
