Mandatory Valentine's Set Menu required for dinner 14th February 2020.

Looking out over one of London’s most famous landmarks, the flagship branch of Thai Square 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 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 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.

Have been to this restaurant many times in the past and it has certainly not fared well. I believe it is now part of a chain? Very slow service, we had to get up to ask for things. Food poor! The papaya salad used to be the best I’ve had, but this one was tasteless, and lacking in some of the ingredients. My duck was tough as leather, and the sauce unidentifiable. Shame!

Abysmal. Was there for 1 hour 25 minutes and received no food. Had a show booked so had to leave, was charged for the bottle of wine we had and told they had knocked the service charge off for our troubles. The service charge was discretionary we was not going to pay it anyway! Disgrace

Starters were delicious
Main was okay, the vegetable dish a little on the salty side.
The waiters came to tell us (in not so many words) to hurry up so we felt rushed at times which spoilt it and why I’ve given 2 stars for service.

Quite overpriced average food, but okay and quite expected considering the super touristy location. It did the job as we needed a pre theatre meal and service was quick.

Unfortunately only 3 serving staff on the night so very poor service. We had long waits and forgotten orders :(

Highly recommend less table covers when staff numbers are low AND better communication about possibly delays.

Great food but worst restaurant service i have ever experienced.

It was a shame that there was only 2 staff on when the restaurant was so busy. There was no one to greet on arrival. The food was not hot and the toilets were a lot to be desired.

Such a shame.

I love this restaurant. It is the best Thai restaurant in London. Even though it is a chain, this is the best branch. I often held my birthday dinner here over the years. The menu is wonderful and the staff are lovely. They have long opening hours and a club downstairs.

Repeat visit for me, this time brought my wife. The staff was very good but not enough to handle this full, popular restaurant. So we had to wait a bit longer than perhaps we should have. The food was excellent, as I remembered, if a bit pricey- but it is London. Decor was very cool and appropriate.

Great food as usual, probably best chicken satay I’ve ever had. Service was relatively good and it’s such a beautiful venue. However the private party upstairs got louder and louder, and it was impossible to hear my friend. Just glad I wasn’t out Ona romantic date.

Was excited to eat here based on good reviews. Unfortunately, service was curt. Had to ask for drink 3 times before it arrived. Was seated directly under cold air conditioning vent. When asked to move, they said it wasn't possible but could turn down air conditioning which was never done. Did not live up to the reviews I read and unlikely to return.

Food was nice, we got in when they opened and there was a few people. Food came out EXTREMELY quick so not sure about how it’s made but food was hot. Servers was nice but was rushing and pacing around and taking peoples plates immediately after they finished so was rushing people. Other than that it was nice.

We were in town for a show to celebrate my husband’s birthday.

We chose the venue for the location and a previous positive experience.

The food was great and full of flavour. The restaurant was busy and therefore slightly delayed. It also felt like there were one too many tables in the restaurant meaning that you felt like you were sitting on top of the table next door.

A la carte order.
Starters were good, slight lack of seasoning on the corn fritters and the butterfly prawns
Steamed Seabass was excellent perfectly cooked.
Prawn red curry was very good, would have loved a little more Thai basil to balance the flavour overall.
Loved the coconut ice cream!!’

We have been to this restaurant a few times and it never lets us down.
During this strange time the place had ample room between tables, menus on the phones so no handling paper and lots of hand sanitizer available.
Would thoroughly recommend a visit to eat this delightful food.
