Description: The Thai Square Restaurant Group was founded in 1996 when the first Thai Square opened in The Strand in central London, aimed at serving tasty, authentic Thai food in Thai-inspired surroundings. There are now twelve London-based restaurants and 3 restaurants outside London. All our restaurants provide the same good value dining experience and we have plans to expand on this unique restaurant concept to open in more major UK cities and other European countries in the future. All Thai Square restaurants use authentic Thai ingredients freshly flown in daily from Thailand, in a range of exquisite dishes served by our charming and attentive Thai staff. The appeal of Thai cuisine lies in fresh flavours and in featuring some dishes that have a kick of chilli. Diners with a more European taste simply need to ask for their favourite dishes with a less spicy flavour - we will be happy to oblige.

The food was great, but hotter than our local Thia in Chatham, Kent. The decor was a little bit worn, but staff were very attentive and polite. Menu was slightly challenging for a gussy teenage daughter, but they were happy to allow a starter to be used as a main.

Had lunch and ate from the curries section of the menu. Great flavours! You need to order one steamy or sticky rice extra per curry. Egg-fried rice was slightly larger portion. Surprisingly, two chillies wasn't too spicy.

The service here was fine, and the food was fantastic! Be warned, spicy means SPICY! We would certainly return next trip.

I have to be honest, having taken 3 of my staff here i had high hopes but felt a little let down. No major issues with the food but it was just very average. Nothing really stood out. Staff were very friendly, food served hot and good on price. A great staging post if your going out after.

Dinner for 2. Sharing platter starter was perfect, not too much. Parang chicken curry very tasty with sticky rice. Pad Thai also good. 2large glasses of wine all cost almost £50. Smallish restaurant. Pleasant staff, service maybe a little slow as it was not busy.

We went here with a group of about 10 a couple of months back. The food is average. Starters were far better than the mains. I didn't think there was anything very authentic about the food. Service was as good as any other restaurant. Very Average.
