We stopped in on a Saturday, and were surprised to find no lunch specials of any kind being offered. Lunch for two (with only water to drink) cost us more than $22, which I think is high for a small Thai place like this, and the food was just...good, not excellent.

The staff was incredibly kind and friendly but the food was just terrible, I can't say that I would recommend it.

Walk in and seat yourself at this delightful little restaurant near the corner of Drake and Shields. They have an extensive Thai menu and everything I saw leaving the kitchen looked yummy. I had Cawshew Beef with the coconut rice and it was outstanding. They do take-out and lots of people took advantage of that too! The service was fast... More

I'm out to find the best Thai food in Ft Collins, having recently moved to the area. So this was my first place, simply because it was close to where I was at the moment. The restaurant does serve alcohol, a plus, and a good variety of Thai dishes, plus some extra non-Thai, but Asian cuisine. I ordered from the... More

We decided to try Simply Thai for lunch one weekend, and to be honest, we were simply underwhelmed. We were able to seat ourselves but it took several minutes to be acknowledged and given menus and silverware. Two wait staff passed by us several times as they were serving other customers, but a lady who seemed to be more of... More

Location is in a strip mall but has plenty of parking. Staff are polite, efficient and get you to your seat quickly and check back to see if you are settled and begin the process of explaining specials, taking drink orders and so forth. This is a return kind of place because whether you sit down and dine in or... More

We visited for lunch recently. Their portions are ample; we ordered our favorite - Pineapple Fried Rice - Stir-fried jasmine rice with pineapple, egg, peas, carrots, yellow curry powder, raisins, cashews, onions, and cilantro. This dish is always tasty, and can be ordered in different degrees of spicyness. Although the menu states Diet Pepsi, they now have Coke products. We... More

A sticky front door was the friendliest thing about the place. After we finally wrenched it open, the defensive waitress brought menus and water, then kept us waiting while she chatted with the cook. After being ignored for ten minutes, we walked out. Usually, I enjoy their food and the weekday lunch waitress is a gem, but the prices have... More

Took a long time to get waited on even though it's a small place in a strip mall. The eggrolls were cold in the middle, but the waitress just said "she'd tell the chef." No follow up. Broccoli was also cold in the entrees. No refills of drinks or checking on how we were doing till the check came. Sauce... More

This is a great place to get Thai food. Although I think Cafe de Bangkok's food is more "authentic", Cafe de Bangkok is really small, often crowded, and take too long for takeout. Simply Thai is a great place if you want consistently good Thai food, good service, and a good dining experience. I especially enjoy the pumpkin curry, which... More
