Thai Square Trafalgar Square
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.
I have heard about Thai Square many times and was expecting great things but was disappointed. Firstly, we waited ages for someone to actually serve us although we were only 1 of 2 other couples in the restaurant at the time. Secondly, when the food was served it was lukewarm and not hot...the ambiance of the restaurant was nice but it wasnt value for money....been to many other Thai restaurants where the food is of better quality and hotter! Won't be going back in a hurry....
Great service and speed of food. Waiter service was also excellent. Will definitely be visiting again
We had a really nice valentines day meal here, the food was very good indeed, the menu was varied and good selection. the venue is really very nicely decorated and the staff were very attentive and helpful. I would definitely come back and had forgotten how nice a venue this is and such a great location.
I booked in advance, popped in to confirm but they could not provide a preferred seat which is a shame, although I thought others had booked the window tables, so perhaps it is possible.
Tables are a bit close together in parts, but we sat upstairs, 2 of us on a table of 4 so plenty of room if they are not busy.
It was my first time at one if these. The food was nice but the staff were a bit inattentive. I have had better Thai food though.
I like the food here so much that I went there on Monday night and I am going back again this Friday!
We were disappointed by the homophobic attitude of one of the waiters (mid-twenties, wearing glasses).
The manager should ensure the staff are polite and respectful to ALL customers.
Otherwise the food was fine although the duck curry arrived luke-warm and was over-cooked. The restaurant looks attractive but would benefit from a lick of paint.
Generally quite poor value.
The ambience and service were second to none, however the food could definitely be better. The food whilst delivered quickly lacked taste.
Excellent food service and appreciation of the fact we needed quick service as we were going to the theatre . I will definitely return to this restaurant
I always enjoy coming to Thai Square, but especially the branch in Trafalgar Square, as it's a grand building. The food was delicious as always - there are very good vegetarian options. The service was efficient. I will definitely come back to this restaurant and highly recommend for an evening out with friends.
Great Food.. Every course was great... the lady that welcomed us was quite rude but our server for the evening was absolutely gracious.. overall a great experience.
Lovely food, good service.
Their pre theatre menu is good
The food is good but the service was terrible, they practically told us to go bringing the bill into the table without giving us the possibility to have a desert.
When we asked for one, they told us to come back tomorrow!
They could have asked us before they close the kitchen if we want a desert.
I would not go back.
I love the decor and the feel of this place, it's warms and welcoming. The cocktails were amazing I definitely give 10/10 for the cocktails but the waitering staff could be more attentive and needs to work more on customer service but other than that Thai Square is a must for food and cocktails!
Food not as good as other Thai Squares I've been in and service was very poor.
Very good food . Good quality quantity. Value for money
Trusted chain for Thai cuisine. Attentive staff with a good selection if dishes.
Had Christmas Day here with family
We got lucky with this place. Down to earth, clean and lovely atmosphere.
Good food and good service, always get a table I would imagine. Not cheap really.
The Pad Thai is delicious. This is my go to restaurant before a show in London. It never disappoints
Food was good - the Christmas menu reasonably priced and perfect for a pre-Christmas family lunch. We were in a characterless corner near the restrooms and with loud music coming from a nearby speaker. However the staff tried to help but there was limited other space. Still I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The building is beautiful.
The food was nice and the set menu help to keep the cost down
Staff always very polite and friendly and food delicious.
Very nice restaurant but service is very bad
It was very very busy but the service was still very good. The food was fantastic, best I have had.
Gorgeous food and atmosphere :)
Ordered Pad Thai noodles was so tasty and filling! My guy ordered sweet vegetables curry and rice was lovely! Both were great taste and quick service. Deffo would recommend the place if your around Trafalgar Square :)
2nd time dining here and still impressed with the food. Great if you are out and about near Trafalgar Square
The second time I’ve visted and it won’t be the last! The food is amazing, as are the cocktails. The staff are very efficient and nothing is too much. Although we were seating next to a rather noisy party, we still enjoyed our time nevertheless.
When arriving it took them some time to find our reservation, but we were served with a smile. The food was very tasty and arrived quickly. HOwever, when we were about to order dessert they said that we'd have to move tables due to a seating issue. Not wanting to move across the dining room, we decided to depart. Which is a shame for them as they missed out on a dessert and two more drink sales.
A bit expensive but the environment is good. Very quiet. However, I am not happy about the service. Only one staff was very smiley. The other two who served us were quite cold and just... did not let me feel welcomed.... although the food tastes good. I don’t think I will go again facing those no facial expression staff... objectively speaking
The food was served moderately hot and we waited a long time until we were served our food.
Service is really slow
Reasonably priced Thai food close to Trafalgar Square.
We have dined here a couple of times and always enjoy the food.
Great service, food was amazing and came out really quickly, would definitely come again
Food was not warm. We were a party of 7. Each of us ordered starters and mains. None of our food was hot, every dish was served almost at room temperature.....and the room was not hot! This forces us to eat our food very quickly as by the end it was actually cold.
Very disappointing and not what we had hoped for.
Nice location and excellent food. Tables are perhaps a bit too close to each other, at least our was.
Good atmosphere and amazing food. Nice staff, service a bit slow.
We had a great dinner in family and I could see myself going back for other occasions
Food excellent, especially recommend the squid. Busy even though early evening but service efficient and friendly.
