About Simply Asia
Chai Lekcharoensuk, a Thai national, spent five years in South Africa before he decided to give one of the local Thai restaurants a go. Needless to say, he was overly disappointed with the un-Thai-like meal he was served.
So much so, he decided South Africa deserved better and decided to open up one of the first upmarket Thai dining restaurant in the country.
A little while later after much planning, the first Wang Thai restaurant opened in 1993. Offering the residents of Cape Town a new place to enjoy an evening sampling authentic Thai food.
The locals loved it so much, the he decided to simplify the menu slightly and open another location, albeit 10 years after the thought. This time naming it Simply Asia Thai Food & Noodle Bar.
The chain has come a long way over the years, with Simply Asia menu consistently adapting and improving its offerings.
Today, there are more than 50 Simply Asia restaurants in Africa, with a large majority of them situated in South Africa.
Of course, everyone eventually gets a little bored of eating the same style of food over and over. If you’ve been loving Simply Asia a little too much, why not head back to the traditional South African seafood. The seafood on the menu at Ocean Basket will be sure to satisfy your ocean cravings.
