Thai Square restaurant in London near the Mansion House is another successful venture for this ever-expanding group of superb Thai restaurants. Express lunches and leisurely suppers are both recommended here as the rush of daytime gives way to a relaxed ambience in the evenings. The setting is typical of the Thai Square chain: the décor is dotted with attractive artifacts like traditional Thai puppets and instruments and decorated with lots of bare wood, bright flowers, and well-thought out lighting. Amiable staff bustle around keeping everybody happy in a warm, relaxed atmosphere. Thai Square’s extensive menu covers all levels of authentic Thai cuisine, like pad Thai for novices, specials for the regulars, and less well-known dishes for the adventurous. Vegetarians are very well looked-after here, but then, so is everyone. Even better, everything is reasonably priced, including the drinks and the well-compiled international wine list.

Food was fine , nothing to complain about however the service was what let this dining experience down. Was rushed in ordering. Staff looking very unhappy and despite an early booking, we felt rushed though.

Service felt a bit rushed initially as staff are obviously used to clientele coming in just for an hours lunch. Once they realised we were in no rush the meal felt less frantic.

I have been to Thai Square before, both in Putney and here in Mansion House. I have always been impressed with the food. However, on this occasion I can only say the food was disappointing. The starters (shredded duck and squid) were decent enough but the Pad Thai fell well below the mark. I have ordered the (shrimp) Pad Thai on several occasions before and always enjoyed it. It should be their signature dish. In this case it was mushy and just did not taste real fresh. Uninspired. The presentation was unimpressive and they no longer wrap the Pad Thai in egg. Unfortunately two of my table partners had also ordered a Pad Thai (veggie and chicken) and I believe their impression was the same.
Space and ambiance and service is still okay. I'm quite sure I will return one more time but do hope they will sort out their food - it starts and ends with that.

A great place for authentic Thai cuisine; the food is incredibly tasty, generously portioned and you're never left feeling unsatisfied! The staff are also wonderful, attentive and quick with the service.

A good choice for a lunchtime or evening catch-up with friends. The service is prompt and friendly (but not overly so). The food taste freshly cooked and there is lots to chose from. The cocktails are great, they remind me of being on holiday. Recommended.

Our waitress was lovely, and we asked to sit near the window which was honoured. The food was really nice and fresh, but the waitress is new and needed to find out about the portion sized when we asked how many duck spring rolls were served.
Very attentive and asked if we wanted more drinks.
I would definitely go back as I would like to try more things on the menu.
Nice relaxed atmosphere.
Didn't get any chopsticks though.

Great little place - very friendly and attentive staff. Had a business lunch here and was a very nice combination of privacy for a confidential conversation, but not too isolated. Food quality was great - a little spicey for my taste, but very nice.

Have visited other Thai Squares on numerous occasions and have always apenjoyed the food. Unfortunately, this one did not live up to expectations. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated with lots of authentic ornaments from the region however, the food really lets this place down. It was quite frankly very very poorly presented and lacked any finesse. The mixed starters may as well have come from Iceland (not the Country) and the mains were poor examples of Thai cooking. If you are going to be an authentic Thai restaurant then don’t let your English chef who would look more in place at a greasy spoon cafe into the dining room ! Also, the restaurant cleared out at 2:15 and the staff started to mop the floors which didn’t exactly make my guests and I particularly welcome.. The only saving grace was that the wine being a Thai white was exquisite but even that is not enough to go back to this restaurant.

Really excellent quality Thai food . I had the deep fried fish which was pretty spicy and not as heavy as it sounds. Service was attentive and the restaurant buzzy.
Good for a quick meal at lunchtime. Will definitely return.

A favoured venue for Thai food fans in the city. Can get busy and then service slow down. We were seated next to some plants where we constantly had flies hovering. Once we asked to move it was much better.

We visited Thai Square off Trafalgar Square a month ago and had a fantastic meal, great service, the food was fresh and delicious , obviously very popular, by the time we left at about 7.30, it was packed and people were being turned away. We were in town again on the 1st of August,as I am being prepared to donate a kidney, so a long day at Guys Hospital. As it is our wedding Anniversary on the 6th, my wife thought it would be a way to end the day to visit Thai Square Mansion House and have an early celebration. We arrived at about 6.00pm, there was only one other table taken, which concerned us a little, but we decided to stay. We ordered crispy duck and chicken satay to start, and to be fair we should have cancelled the rest of the order and left. Both dishes were only warm, and in fact the chicken was cool in temperature. The duck was not crispy and hot ( as you normally expect ) and was fatty in texture. The chicken was dry and not at all flavoursome and tender. We did mention this to the waitress, but she was not interested. We decided against ordering wine, we had a chicken and beef dish, both non descript in flavour, but at least they were hot. The best dish was the egg fried rice, but we have enjoyed better quality rice all over the world. We left within an hour, and there was only two tables taken. We would strongly recommend the restaurant in Trafalgar, but would suggest that diners give the Mansion House restaurant a 'wide birth'

Very nice restaurant and would be going back. However as it was a really hot day we were very hot and the AC felt like they would turn it on for 5 minutes and then back on.

However overall experience was lovely.
