Tonight I took my cousin Pam and her mom, my Aunt Betty to a new Thai restaurant on the beach. I have been visiting My Thai in the Cove for some time and have reviewed it here. I have come to enjoy the fresh flavors Thai food brings to the table. I do enjoy Chinese cuisine, but sometimes I get stagnet with it.
Simply Thai is located at 944 Thomas Drive across from the Navy Base gate. It's in a strip shopping center there. The location has been home of other restaurants to no avail, so I don't know how long it will be there. The service was friendly although the food arrived too quickly for me to enjoy the appetiser of chicken Satay's or my bowl of Tom Yum soup. The chicken Satay's were good. The peanut dipping sauce was not too salty or too peanutty. It was spot on. The Tom Yum was delicious, full of flavor from the chili oil, fish sauce, and Kafir lime leaves. I did find the occasional tough lemon grass shoot that I had to remove from my mouth. For dinner I tried the Drunken noodles. The description said it is made with wide noodles which were like Lasagna noodles rolled up. It also had vegetables, chicken and shrimp. This is the first time I have tried this dish and I would recommend it to you. My wife stuck with the classic Pad Thai noodle dish. I tried a small sample and it was what I expected of it. As you know I normally like to test a restaurant three time before a review is written, but with this place being in a location that other have failed, I wanted to let you know so you could try it. I will not rate Simply Thai until I tray it two more times, and I will.
