A word from Thai Square Trafalgar Square
Looking out over one of London’s most famous landmarks, the flagship branch of Thai Square restaurant is a great choice for lunch or dinner near Trafalgar Square. Formerly the impressive Norwegian embassy, Thai Square is a seriously spacious venue full of traditional artefacts, heavy wooden doors and sprays of exotic flowers – perfect for laid-back lunches with friends and cosy romantic dinners. And when tourists invariably tumble in by chance, they are rewarded, as you will be, with excellent Thai cuisine. Thai Square’s authentic Thai menu is full of familiar favourites like fiery tom yum soup, fragrant green chicken curry and chargrilled duck breast with tamarind sauce. Vegetarians are spoilt for choice at Thai Square with delicious dishes like aubergine and shiitake mushrooms stir-fried with sweet basil and garlic. At the weekend, the club downstairs is open until 3am – perfect for diners who want to dance the night away in style. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Our table was ready on Saturday at 5.30pm as booked and the staff were helpful and attentive from the moment we arrived. We were given the Top Table 'special offer' set menu which had a couple of platter choices to start & several options for main course. Everything was nicely presented, hot, ample portions and very tasty. The restaurant was busy and the pace of the meal was relaxed although the staff responded well when we asked for dessert to be served quickly as we were off to the theatre. A most enjoyable experience and we'd definitely go again. "

  • "The Toptable deal is a good option if dining in the Trafalgar Sq area. While short, the menu offers enough standard choices to satisfy the mainstream diner. Food is of decent quality, starters well presented while the main courses were a generous portion size. Only ice cream as a dessert choice is disappointing if you are not a fan of ices or coconut. I would go again."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "We booked the special offer 3 courses for £18.50. The main courses were very substantial and tasty and the coconut ice cream for dessert was the perfect way to round off the meal. Service was outstanding and the surroundings are lovely. Really great place that we enjoy returning to as often as possible."

  • "The Toptable menu for 2 was presented as a separate menu fom the standard a la carte. There was plenty of choice an we had the mixed starter platter for two followed by sweet and our prawns (very delicious) and beef with basil leaves (very very hot - they were not kidding about the 3 chillies sign next to the item on the menu). The coconut ice cream with mango sauce nicely calmed the taste buds. Service was very good. Overall it was great value and we will definitely go there again."

  • "As an after theatre venue the location is great, but the selected post-theatre fixed price menu was indifferent, some of the most bland and least enticing Thai food I have ever enjoyed in London. Most tables were empty too - feels like we are not the only customers to vote with their palettes."

  • "I booked this restaurant for my wife's birthday date. From the point I booked the experience was professional and smooth. I called the restaurant to confirm the arrangements and the staff were very helpful. Throughout the night the staff were very helpful and always at hand for prompt service. The food here was amazing and portions very decently sized. We had enough food left over from our meals for lunch the next day. Very happy and will definitely be returning again."

  • "First time visit to this Thai restaurant over the weekend and had a great time. Really can't think of anything that I would complain about, the food was great, the service was spot on, and I was surprised by my bill at the end of the night. I'll certainly be back there again."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "We had the 3 courses for £18.50 deal. The food was excellent. Starters were a mixed platter. For the main course, I chose the green curry, which was slightly hot, but very tasty. Dessert was coconut ice cream with mango sauce, which was cooling after the main course. Waiters were polite and attentive. I would go back."

  • "Reserved for 17.15pm through your system Was for pre theatre Doors not open til 17.30 ( why accept booking?) We were expected and offered the top table menu. Told we had to leave 19.15pm Meal was slow, even for pre set...very slow...this was 1st sitting after all! ordered dessert at 18.50, and asked for bill bill arrived...but NO dessert...despite much waving and asking.. SO LEFT at 19.22pm without...late and angry Told management...and argued with them, but finally got refunded ."

  • "Thai Square Trafalgar Square is a spacious restaurant with room for long tables - we were a party of 15. There is a speedy set menu, served in a box, with rice, fruit, spring rolls and a choice of main course. It now costs £10 which is still pretty good value, but it used to be cheaper! Most of us had the box menu."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "A little bit disappointed. I have been to the Thai Square at Minories and was expecting the same service and food quality but no. Friend ordered the sweet and sour chicken and noted the sauce tasted it came out of a bottle, it was too sweet. I ordered lamb massaman and half of the meat was just fat and service was slow."
    dined on 12/02/2014
  • "Always stop in when I London for excellent Thai comfort food. Always worth the stop."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Although it's a bit pricey the food is always excellent. For lunch they had a three course special for 18.50. Very nice."
    dined on 10/03/2014
  • "I have been to this Thai Square many times, for different occasions and would highly reccomend as the food is always really good. However on this occasion we were there very early, when they opened and opted for the pre-theatre menu. For some reason, we were told (after we had ordered) that we couldn't have any of the stir-fried dishes as they didn't have electricity until 8pm? Yes the lights were on. Odd reason which meant we were only left with two 'options'. Both were tasty but not really what we wanted."
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "Food is great here and the service is good too. This is a restaurant I choose to return to again and again."
    dined on 04/03/2014
  • "I booked Thai Square as it wqs not too far from work. The Booking process was simple and easy to follow. On arrival we were met, shown to our table and the appropriate menue was to hand; saving any issues. I was paying for the complete lunch and had booked the set lunch Menue. This was excellent with plenty of choices to look at. The Service was excellent, smooth without being over the top or rushed. The Green chicken curry for me was very good and well presented - as were all the dishes. We left after having 3 courses each feeling just right and all agreeing that the food was of very good value and well presented and served."
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "Had a good evening at Thai square with the Toptable offer. If it wasn't for that it would be quite expensive but the offer is excellent. The choice and portion size is good. The food is good - not the greatest Thai food but the combination of ambiance, location and service made it a good evening. Would definitely go back when there is a Toptable offer on."
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "We had a great meal at thai square, good ambience and great value food! Would recommend for a cheap and cheerful eat!"
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "Good was great, but the restaurant let themselves down with their service. They seemed a bit pushy with drinks & had to verify our toptable deal 3 times (twice checking the email confirmation & once with the waiter I told at the start which shouldn't have been necessary) and then forgot to apply the correct discount to some dishes. They corrected it without complaint but I expected better service. Tables are really close together now too. But we had a nice evening with good food and were not rushed out the door after 2 hours which was good."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "The restaurant is very welcoming and the ambience inviting. Every dish we had was delicious and the staff were attentive."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "...sorry to say that service let us down a little this time. Was a little slow and they overcharged us for a drink. Food was good, but lacked the usual WOW factor."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Thai Square is always a safe bet, consistently good food and great service. Although we did at times feel we were being rushed."
    dined on 20/02/2014
  • "We did the toptable 50% offer for this resteraunt. The food was excellent, the location was great, and the service was fine. On the menu they highlight what is included in the 50% off offer, they also discount some of the other dishes by 30% (chef recommendations)."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "The food was mostly ok without being outstanding. The green chicken curry was thin, bland and watery. Very few customers."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Had to wait quite a while to get drinks & place order, it was quite busy but frustrating to have to chase staff. Great food though"
    dined on 19/02/2014
  • "Absolutely faultless! Lovely staff and great food. If anything bit over busy but would be happy to return."
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "Truly appalling service despite excellent food. Hard to know if worth putting up with the former to enjoy the latter, particularly as they couldn't even take or deliver a dessert order. They were too busy setting up empty tables for the next day."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "Beautiful restaurant. We had the 50% off food offer which made the meal really good value Service friendly and not too attentive Would certainly go again"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "The service was excellent, lovely atmosphere with plenty of space between tables. We were going to the theatre after and luckily the food was served quickly"
    dined on 13/02/2014
  • "Lovely and convenient setting, just by Leicester square and delicious food with good sized portions. I think the staff struggled a bit with the Saturday evening rush and sometimes even the smallest request took a long time."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "We enjoyed all the dishes we ordered. Only sour note was that on arrival, staff member gave the impression that we were too late to eat, even though we had booked at 10pm and arrived at 10.10pm. We were then served but we would not recommend restaurant for post theatre dining, as we felt rushed, even though staff were charming."
    dined on 06/02/2014
  • "Not the best Thai food we have had. The offer saved it from being expensive. I think we were paying for the location. Before we had time to sit back and reflect on our starters, we were served our main course. OK but not memorable something missing from the experience."
    dined on 06/02/2014
  • "Good experience athough restaurant was quiet for a Friday evening, quality of food was great but worked out expensive and £3.50 for a bowl of prawn crackers seemed excessive, will stick to just a main next time"
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "Had the Toptable set meal which was great and excellent value. The decor, atmosphere and service were also very good. Although it was quite busy we could easily hear each other speak. Will go again."
