When Thai national Chai Lekcharoensuk couldn’t find real Thai flavours in SA, he did the obvious …
he set up his own restaurant (Wang Thai, which opened in Cape Town in 1993). Ten years later, he
launched the first Simply Asia Thai Food and Noodle Bar (Best Asian Restaurant) … and the rest, as
they say, is (delicious) history. From the first dish – Po-Pia Je (veggie spring rolls with a sweet and
sticky plum sauce) to the last – Salapao Sai Cream (a coconut milk custard-filled steamed bun),
Simply Asia is the top, top choice for Thai. www.simplyasia.co.za
