The food was good, the service was slow considering it was a quiet thursday night, but worst of all was the horrendously drunk manger. He was rude, sarcastic, and complained bitterly about us using debit card to pay the bill of £166 while pouring himself another very large glass of white wine. He was an absolute embarrassment, and I felt extremely sorry for his staff who were desperately trying to subdue his temper. I would find it difficult to eat there again.

I took my friend to Simply Thai tonight, and immediately, upon entering were hugely impressed with the interior and the entire ambience of the restaurant. The waitresses greeted us with a traditional bow and with beaming smiles, and showed us to a table for 2. Such a range of choice on the menu, itʼs almost impossible to settle for just one dish; they all sound delicious. I decided to have the Jungle curry and my friend the Green Thai curry. I can barely describe the exquisite tase of my curry. There was definitely herbs and spices Iʼd never tasted before and although tongue-numbingly hot, I just couldnʼt stop eating it. Iʼd say this is one of my all time best eating-out experiences and will entertain friends and visitors there again. The serivce is second to none and you leave the restaurant knowing you have been well looked after, well fed, and feeling calm and tranquil.

The ambience, the food and the warm friendly staff make your evening at Simply Thai one to remember. The excellent choice of food & wine make this one of Buxtonsʼ busiest restaurants so booking at weekends is recommended.

Simply Thai is, without doubt, a dining experience to be savoured and enjoyed. The extensive menu offers really delicious, authentic Thai food, the likes of which I have not experienced since I lived in Thailand and is presented to table by polite and attentive staff dressed in traditional costume. Soft, soothing music adds to the natural serene ambience, which ensures a most relaxed and enjoyable experience. A gem in the Peak District and one truly deserving itʼs award-winning status.

One of the best dining experiences in Buxton! Fantastic menu with good choice of dishes, very, very tasty food and pleasant, polite staff. Offers quite reasonable value for money. The only downside is that it does often get very busy at times due to itʼs popularity - meaning that you have to sometimes be very patient between courses - but it is well worth the wait.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch recently. I met colleagues for a business lunch and had Thai Green Curry - which was extremely tasty and didnʼt make me want to sleep all afternoon! Good service, well priced lunch - weʼll be back again soon.
