The ability to differentiate between red and green curry is the mark of a good Thai chef and a common tell among children faking colorblindness to skip school. Test your rods and cones with this Groupon.
Shades of crimson and golden lighting embrace patrons as they enter Simply Thai, where the aromas of curry and spiced stir-fry enchant the senses. Crispy duck bathes in piquant sauces, and seafood specials populate plates with shrimp, scallops, and mussels in rich pools of curry. Meat-eschewers can find solace in a lengthy list of vegetarian specials, curries, and noodle dishes.
While using forks to spear thin-sliced beef or twirl flat rice noodles, patrons can sit back into curvy, cushioned backboards and admire a mandala-esque bronze disk mounted onto a colorful wall. A Buddha motif interweaves the restaurant's décor, with golden Buddha heads watching over diners from a wall and a larger lounging statue dreaming of nirvana and its close cousin, Marshmallow Fluff.
I grew encouraged by the calm atmosphere—attractive with several pieces of Asian-inspired art, dark wood tables and chairs and dim lighting.Laura Johnson Dahlke, AltDaily, 12/17/09
