The Thai Square group have done a good job of turning three levels of shops near Angel Tube into a recommendable mid-priced restaurant. Tall ceilings, lots of natural light, plants and traditional Thai art are among the nice touches that make for a genuinely comfortable eating environment. Overlooking the large main dining room is an equally spacious mezzanine, often reserved for private parties. The bar's in the basement. Pick of the consistently good menu are Thai-restaurant staples, pad thai and green chicken curry. The more adventurous like weeping tiger. Not the real thing, of course, but a spicy beef dish. The vegetarian menu fills an entire page. Lovely staff. All in all, very good value.

Decided to try the Islington branch of Thai Garden, it didn’t disappoint. The food was excellent, it was hot and served in a timely manner. The staff were readily available to meet your needs.

This was the worst experience ever. Order the two course special offer before 7pm. Portions were small. The main dish turned up cold. We returned the dish and waited for a while before they returned our mains. Arrived cold again. The third time we received the food it was pipping hot but we were waiting a long time in the restaurant. Apple, assistant manager, was rude. She spoke to us as though we were complaining for nothing. She came over and said, "are you happy now" in a hostile tone. After we had our mains and the plates were taken away, the waitress immediately gave us the desert menu. We were planning to order another drink but because of the rudeness of the staff we decided we wanted to leave and catch a drink somewhere else. We received the bill and discussed our experience with Apple. She said that she doesn't care and that no discount of the bill would be given because we had eaten the food. We explained that our evening had been ruined. She said she didn't care and wasn't interested if were we would write a bad review as they are a big company and our review wouldn't make a difference to them as they have restaurants everywhere. The attitude was terrible. No customer service. Very unprofessional.

Great authentic thai food with friendly service. For something different try the tamarind duck, really tender, tastes great.

The service took forever. Each time we asked for water we had to follow up a couple of times. The food came very quickly though

Food was really good but the problem was you felt rushed to order main meal. We had a few starters and wanted to relax and have a min before ordering main meal. Staff keep looking to see if we had finished and kept coming over we felt that they wanted us to eat fast and go. It was a shame as the food was very nice.

Thai Sq. Islington is really a lovely dining experience. The food is so tasteful and beautifully presented. The staff were amazing and so very polite. The early bird menu is great. I can't fault it. I have tried all the start let's and mains. I can't choose a favourite. Always a delight coming to this restaurant.

Terrible corn cakes... Refried. Portions were very small. We have been to the flagship Trafalgar Square branch and it is much better.

Our 5th time back here, favourite Thai in London. Food compares to some of the best in the West End, only the portions are bigger and you get better value at Thai Square. Couldn’t recommend it more!

The service wasn't great. Food is ok but nothing absolutely fantastic. It's not worth the value.

The food was tasty and the decor very pleasant indeed with lots of indoor vegetation. If you've been to an upmarket Thai resort before, you'd probably agree their washrooms wouldn't look out of place there either! A pleasant lunch experience.

The staff was pleasant, service attentive and the food quickly served and tasty. Tamarind duck. Perfect. What’s not to like? I had a very good evening.

As an aside,I started with an Old Fashioned cocktail. Even that was great. Never before had it served under a glass dome of smoke. I was impressed.

I left the same feedback on Tripadvisor...

I thought the food was very good - fresh, nicely spiced, well-prepared. The staff were wholly unable to help (or even try to help) with the Wi-fi, which wasn’t working. We were slightly overcharged on the bill (about £3); I didn’t quibble, as I didn’t want a complaint to be the way the evening ended for my guests. Despite that, though, I’d go again.

I have been few times now, the food is alright, as expected of restaurant chain. The service is just bad, it probably takes another year before I go back

The drunken noodles was good, but the jungle curry was not impressive at all. It was spicy but that's all there was to it. It barely had any other flavours and it wasn't well cooked.

The dessert took so long to arrive although it did taste really nice.

Overall it was an okay experience but it certainly wasn't worth all that money

Thai Square Angel - okay for a spot of lunch but don't go there for a special occasion.

My partner and I went for lunch and we chose the dumplings and salt and chilli squid to start, followed by Pad Thai and Prawn Panang Curry for main. The chilli squid was ok, the fat hadn't been properly soaked off the squid. The dumplings were meh.

The prawn Panang Curry was delicious, a definite must if you go to Thai Square. However, the Pad Thai didn't have much flavour and was a little disappointing.
