Amongst the youngest in the deservedly popular Thai Square chain, Thai Square Putney enjoys a prime spot adjacent to the bridge. But it’s not just the picturesque location that attracts the buzzy, well-to-do crowd. There’s the exotic cocktails served in the bell-adorned entrance bar, and then there’s the fantastic food served by friendly staff in the light, airy dining room above. The menu consists mainly of familiar Thai restaurant staples, including pad thai noodles, cracking curries (red, green, yellow, roast duck) and pan-fried dishes. The exclusive dishes deserve particular attention, especially black cod in a wonderful chu chee sauce topped with coconut cream. The vegetarian section is impressively long. A strong wine list features organic choices. A great value Thai experience.

Big thumbs up, lovely restaurant with bar downstairs and the staff were wonderful! Really well made hand-crafted cocktails, very exotic and tasty :)

Sadly we did not have the best view of the river but this is not the restaurant's fault as there was construction which is beyond their control.

Overall a great evening, thank you Thai Square!

Very disappointing.
The food is average and for what it is ... vastly overpriced.
The sharing plater was mediocre.
One of the worst Thai food I actually experienced.
Location is great tho! Which was the reason I used to go there.

We ordered 2 drinks before the food. One arrived. Had to wait 10min for the other.
Asked for the wine list after our starters. We did wait and wait... I went to get the wine list myself - the waitress apologised, the restaurant was busy.
Did not eat my main course - weeping tiger steak - as the meat had a flavour of... meat fat gone off. The little sauce there was, was bland so couldnt even eat my rice.
They did not charge us for the steak, but the evening was not as planned - had to go home to eat!
It's a shame, we used to like this place and go a couple of times a year, but I dont think we will go back.

First visit to Thai Square Putney for a while and pleased to report that it has maintained its high standards. In fact the food was even better as a new Executive menu (I think that was what it was called) had some excellent new dishes. Staff very friendly and all dishes were great. The cocktails are also brilliant.

I always like the soft shell crab with mango salad and it didn't disappoint. Red curry was good as was the beef dish we had which I can't recall. Thai Square Putney has a great staff, good food, and a great view of the river!

We booked a table but told on arrival after waiting in queue downstairs that there wasn't one?
We waited a fair time and then they found a table.

Waited quite a while to get wine, I had to ask as waiters rushing around while we were ignored.

Food was really good, though I thought the wine was too expensive for what it was, approx. £25 a bottle. £190 for 4 people seemed a bit expensive.

Went for great meal at Thai Square on a Friday night with some friends. We had pre drinks / cocktails in the bar where the music was great. Great selection and price and then went up to table. We chose silver set menu for £30, and found portions large and selection excellent. Followed by coffees. Service was friendly. This is a fabulous restaurant for Putney with superb views, just surprised it was not busier.

The restaurant was practically empty on a Tuesday evening. Granted, it was 6pm. Despite this, we had good service and the food was great. It’s also conveniently located next to the Putney pier so easy to get to should you be taking the RB6 boat.

The food was really delicious although I think it was very overpriced - £17.50 for pad thai noodles is ridiculous. Setting is nice, I would definitely return if someone else was paying e.g. business meal etc.

I went here with some friends as I fancied some thai food locally. I had seen quite a mix of reviews so arrived with some small misgiving but on arrival the staff were very professional and offered to give us the best table with the best view over the river if we were willing to wait 15 minutes, no doubt in response to my note asking for a table with a view of the river.

They have 2 menus - an 'executive' one and the normal version. In this case executive means more expensive but very good. We chose a mix of starters - the duck salad and Scallops from the exec menu, which were all outstanding, and the mixed platter of starters for 2 from the regular menu. This was followed by the lamb shank in yellow curry, vegetable green curry and the jungle curry. All of these were delicious and the jungle curry had a pleasant heat to it as expected. Coupled with the coconut rice it was a lovely meal. Their pina coladas are also very yummy and went down a treat.

Overall a fantastic experience, though the prices are a bit more expensive than entirely warranted (in my view) but the quality is good and it tasted excellent.

My husband and I visit every year if not twice a year. We went in May this year and decided to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in August. From May to August.... the menu is now half the size and the prices hugely inflated. The king prawns were missing from my pad Thai and was replaced with one giant scary looking shell on prawn. I was not impressed as I left half a bowl of prawnless noodles behind. Such a shame as in this case "change is NOT good". Will not be going back .... so upset at that.

We asked and told the resturant we are celebrating our anniversary while booking to maybe try and make special efforts but non wat so ever not even a flower on the table. Iv had thai food before in many places like busaba and the taste of food was very bland just looks fancy and well over priced for the taste. Left very disappointed and as soon as we could. My husband didn't even touch his curry as he said is was so tasteless. Only nice thing was decor and view.

Really nice food, at a great little spot on the river. Service was fantastic, however the food is very expensive for what is essentially an average menu. They automatically added a 12.5% service charge to the bill, which I felt removed my ability to reward the good service of the staff.
All in all a good little restaurant in a fantastic river location.

£13 for a single prawn starter! Another £13 for a 2 scallop starter (but very tasty).
It's local and I've been before but I will really question visiting again due a new seasonal menu that rips you off.

The food was very good but sadly the service was lacking.

The staff seemed pretty miserable which was awkward at times. When we asked for serviettes there was some attitude. There were only 3 other tables at the time so they're weren't busy at all. Was a shame as not sure we'll return because if it. Location overlooking the river is a real draw.

We had an enjoyable dinner at Thai Square Putney. The river views are excellent and the food was very good. However, we feel that it would be preferable and more frequented if there was an Opentable offer available like other Thai restaurants in London.

Thai Square Putney is always a treat. here are dishes that I seem to get all the time, the soft-shell crab and mango salad :-) and the spicy scallops. All dishes are good... so after those stand-outs, you can choose your own.

The other part is the view. Opt for a seat by the window and you are sitting on the Thames, looking at Bishop's Park, Putney Pier, and Putney Bridge... outstanding!
