Pre/post Theatre
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.

Reasonable meal in a central location. Very friendly staff. No alcohol free beers was a surprise.

Unimpressed.

Actually choked on the spice in the butterfly prawn starter dish - not a great experience.

Service was not great, not sure if the staff were too rushed of their feet but service was off-hand.

Good food. Service was very average.
You would get the feeling that the staff wanted you to finish your meal quickly so they could clean up your table and go home. So unfortunately it wasn’t a relaxing experience. Staff wasn’t impolite but they should definitely put some effort in making people feel more welcome and relaxed.

Inexperienced at serving wine. Ordered a Sancerre bottle. Instead of making one of us try the wine first , the waitress just started pouring both glasses. When glasses would still have enough wine in them, staff would come and pour more wine which made us feel like that they want us to drink up and finalise our dinner ASAP.

This was a dinner around 7 pm on a Monday with less than half of the restaurant full. they weren’t busy and there was no excuse to handle the service in such a manner.

The bill was brought without us asking.

We will not come back again.

The food was sensational! We had the silver set, and they let us substitute (which was very kind of them.) The green curry was PERFECT; the veggie spring rolls just crispy enough; and my husband raved about the duck curry. It could have been way more expensive considering the quality of the food!

Spectacular food and service. For those who like spicy food, this place hits the nail on the head. There are 3 tiers of spicy-ness for many dishes. The second tier knocked my socks off, loved it!

We had to flag down a server every time we needed something. Our food arrived before our drinks. My drink was wrong, our rice was so undercooked that it was crunchy, the prawn crackers were stale.

This is a little gem in the west end. We had the Tom kha gai soup followed by pad Thai. Food was nice however the Tom Kha Gai could have been more flavoursome.

The place really has a nice vibe, but wouldn't really go there again as the food didn't meet our expectations. The pad thai felt like rubber, and the pad thai tofu felt it was floating in a sweet sauce, possibly soy or even worse felt like bbq sauce. The staff were lovely though, kept attending and really polite especially Ginga (might have her name wrong) and another gentleman and another lady.

Great location just off Trafalgar Square. Big windows so light and airy, liked the decor. The food was great and if you want to save a bit of money they have a pre-theatre set menu.

All was fine except for the noise level. We came in at 5.30 and it was fine, but the noise escalated, particularly at one table, which made it extremely difficult to carry on our own conversation

Dinner was just awful, the sizzling tiger was cold not even the plate it was served on was warm let alone sizzling.
My fish which was supposed to be a whole steamed fish was freezing and half of it missing
Our wine was warm and bearly drinkable
Will not ever be going back

Table service was slow to begin with, as we sat waiting for a while for some one to take our drinks order, but this improved during the proceeds of the evening.

Perhaps it’s normal to not respond back or communicate with customers in London area, but while the staff were relatively polite, I’m not sure if we heard their voice during the one hour visit. Generally speaking that’s very off putting.

Probably one of the worst experiences. My fiancé and went to Thai Square on a Saturday night and it was my fiancé’s birthday meal. I asked for Thai Square to bring me out a little cake to celebrate but they didn’t even do that. Our food wasn’t great - almost as if they put no effort. The service was even more poor - which resulted in us not paying the service charge. No one was welcoming. No one smiled at us whilst bringing us the food and drinks.

This is a very centrally located Thai restaurant, with an extensive menu and good food. The Healthy Lunch Box offers particularly good value at lunchtime on weekdays. The decor is traditional and the ambience good, though the tables tend to be rather close to each other. Recommended!

The menu was extensive with Thai influence, and the food was well prepared and tasty. Portions were adequate to generous. The service was very good. It is a very good spot for pre-theatre in the area around Trafalgar square, and is very worth a visit.

We liked the food, however there was a lot of paprika (sweet pepper) in our meal, and we don't like it.
