Following a full and extensive refurbishment, Thai Square re-opened its doors in late 2017. It’s now one of the most gorgeous upper street restaurants.

Spread over two floors and with lush botanical interiors, including a striking living wall, Thai Square Islington is a light and airy oasis of calm in the midst of the buzzing Angel shopping district.

Thai Square Islington attracts local residents and businesses alike. With its flawless service, thoughtfully curated and excellent restaurant deals, it’s one of London’s best Thai restaurants and a staple on the Upper Street restaurant scene.

In addition to main restaurant and food offering, the upstairs of Thai Square houses a stunning and sleek bar area adorned with high stool seating and exposed lightbulbs. The sophisticated space often hosts live entertainment and is the perfect stop for a pre or post dinner drink, or standalone lounge bar location.

Food was excellent, best Pad Thai I’ve had in a while. However the service needs to be improved customer service is definitely slacking. I believe waitstaff needs to acknowledge their guest instead of walking off when someone is talking to someone. When I had asked for a recommendation on the wine I felt as if the waiter thought what I was asking was a stupid question. Like I said the food is GREAT ! However if the service was better it would have been 5stars.

The food is always fresh, the restaurant itself is lovely and quiet (with very nice bathrooms!) and always good service.

We've gone there numerous times and were always really pleased with our meal.

Been here three times in the last few months - and quite often before - because it's usually good. The starers were good- the drinks were cold. But this time they could not get the main dishes to our table hot and found it impossible to reheat them thoroughly when asked, twice. They did cancel some charges voluntarily so it seems a bit harsh to complain, but it wasn't the meal we wanted or expected.

They probably didn't expect so many customers that night so maybe didn't have enough staff on duty Nice room, pleasant staff but congealing lukewarm-ish Thai curries are not what you go here to eat. They should only book out the tables they can cater for.

The food was very nice and tasty however; it was a bit rushed. We were still eating the starters when the mains came out. We had sat down at 6.30 and were on our mains by 6.55.

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.

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.

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 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.
