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 place is good for late night dinner. The pad thai is okay. I have tried both dining in and home delivery. The quality of food in the two seemed different. The takeaway/delivery wasn't good at all.

We have been dining here for many years prior to going to the theatre. What has happened to the place? We had lunch yesterday, and were totally underwhelmed. The staff were far from welcoming.

Had a really lovely meal. Ordered from the Pre-Theatre menu and found the food to be excellent. I would return again. Well served, well timed, well presented, well priced, well located. I was more than pleased with the meal.

There's an authentic Thai restaurant right next to my office, so I'm pretty spoiled, but this restaurant tasted just as good! Very fresh and flavorful, and the staff was very attentive (it always helps to have full glasses of water when you're eating spicy food!).

The staff, the location and the set up of the restaurant were all very good. The drinks and food are both very keenly priced and the the service was excellent.

Went here for a pre-theatre dinner. They had a set menu for £14 with a small selection of dishes to choose from. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and cleaned our plates. I thought it was great value, really tasty and a great price. Would highly recommend and definitely go back.
