SquareMeal Review of
It took an appearance on Gordon Ramsay’s F Word to bring this diminutive local eatery to the notice of a wider public, & it’s debatable whether fame has been a benefit. For a decade or
so before the publicity, Simply Thai had enough custom to keep chef-proprietor Patria Weerapan busy cooking her Thai standards, plus a few more interesting dishes (smoked trout salad with apples
& pomegranate, followed by a curry of pork belly with pickled bamboo shoots, perhaps). Yet after the TV show, demand completely outstripped supply (there are only around 10 tables in the
contemporarily furnished little space). The business seems to be returning to an even keel, but even so, it’s best to avoid busy times to get the best from the kitchen & waiting staff.
