great selection for vegans

Staff is well versed in their menu and what vegan food is. When ordering online, the menu is clear on what can and cannot be made vegan. The food is always delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Awesome Thai & Vegan Friendly

Awesome restaurant! Great portion sizes, friendly service, and reasonable prices.

Honestly, we were a large group at a busy time so there was certainly a wait however the service was still great. This is the first place to remember to give extra vegetables on a Tempura platter when you take the shrimp out therefore they win for me! It was easy to order vegan and the food was delicious.

Highly recommend!

Great Thai option

Simply Thai is one of my favorite veg-friendly restaurants. Almost any dish can be made with tofu, vegetables, or TVP instead of a meat option. You also have options for the level of spice that you want (from 0-5, 0 being no spice and 5 being "Thai spicy") to further tailor your dish.

I've tried a number of the items on the menu. With the exception of the sushi (which was good but not outstanding), I would definitely order them again.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, Variety

Cons: Slow service

the best Thai food in Louisville

This place is great! There menu has lots of variety and you can always ask for something to be made vegan. Simply Thai can be very busy during dinner time, but carry out is always available.

Pros: flavor, accommodating, location

Cons: parking , wait time can be long

Flavor Powerhouse

Every dish was a flavor powerhouse, which I enjoyed immensely. A lot of restaurants rely on salt and sugar to get their food through, but Simply Thai vamped up their ginger and lemon grass and basil to bring the flavors to soaring points. The Tamarind TVP tastes like chewy french toast. Doesn't look like French Toast. But sure does taste like it. I ordered it last as a dessert.

They are super busy during the usual dinner time, so if you can, try to hit before the 5pm crowd.

They have bags and bags of Dominoes Sugar in the back next to the restroom. I'm not entirely sure what all they put it in, but Dominoes sugar is not vegan as they use bone char to bleach their sugar. If that's something you watch out for, be sure to ask in what recipes they use it in.

Pros: Food, presentation

Cons: sugar source, crowd
