Week 9 – Simply Thai, Newark CA

My continuing quest to try a new restaurant every week in 2010…


On Wednesday, my sister and I stopped in at Simply Thai in Newark for lunch.  She’d eaten here a few times before, but I hadn’t so it fit in with my need for a new restaurant every week.

We were seated promptly at one of the few bench seats (grrr) in the restaurant at the tail end of lunch.  They quickly filled our water glasses, but took quite a while to take our order.  Just as I started to become impatient the waiter arrived.  I ordered the Panang Chicken lunch and she ordered the BBQ Chicken lunch.

The food arrived relatively quickly.  The curry sauce for the Panang Chicken was creamy and yummy.  It reminded me of a mix between yellow and red curry, but the menu said that it’s actually a different kind.  My sister’s BBQ chicken was good as well.  The flavor of the chicken was similar to satay chicken, but the sauce was not.  She said the sauce was sweet and yummy.  We each also received a bowl of soup, an egg roll, white rice, and salad with peanut sauce (nut allergies beware!).

Our water glasses were kept filled throughout the meal and our bill was handled quickly.  I also liked that every time I said “thank you” they actually responded with “you’re welcome.”  Not a grunt, not a nod, actual words!

For our two meals and one cup of tea it was under $20 plus tip for lunch.
