EXCELLENT TASTY FOOD

I went with a largish group so the service was a little slow. However the meal was well worth waiting for. It was hot,tasty, imaginative and good value. The restaurant was very clean and pleasant to sit in . The decor was a little bland as it lacked the usual flamboyance of a thai restaurant. Be... read more

Thai on the Square can be found in the precinct across from Wood Street ( down from the Town Hall). There are sometimes a few parking spaces available on a Wood Street otherwise you might have to park near the Main Post Office or the car park near the Coop Bank on Providence Street. The restaurant claims that Thai cuisine... More

Four of us ventured here last Saturday night, past the wild men and women of Wakefield out for a boozy time in the pubs and clubs of this fine Yorkshire town and upstairs into the resturant and therefore sanctuary. The place was awash with far eastern people celebrating a birthday I believe, can't get a better recommandation than that, food... More

This serves lovely thai food in a nice setting - on the first floor up some stairs so you might miss it! Definitely worth a look

This is s nice place, clean, nicely decorated and very friendly staff. The food was lovely, although a few Chinese dishes on the menu and not as many authentic Thai dishes as I expected (based on my experience of Thai restaurants in leeds). All in all it was nice, I'd go again.

Me and my boyfriend had dinner here at around 7pm on Friday 3rd July 2015. It took us a while to find this place, you could easily just walk past, even though I knew it was above the shops / bars in Wakefield town centre after reading the reviews. Its not in the most romantic setting either, there were people... More

Thai On The Square is an unassuming place in the centre of Wakefield. The staff are understated and the whole place has a relaxed atmosphere. The food is fantastic. The special's board is great and the rest of the menu has the usual Thai dishes but all are accomplished with a modest finesse. We felt relaxed sat in the window... More
