Try the crispy fried squid

The crispy fried squid of Thai Square was featured on Washington Post as one of the "Most Essential dishes for 2015" and we decided to give it a try. We also had the duck red curry. The crispy fried squid was delicious. It was crispy and flavorful. And a bit spicy but bearable even for people... read more

I've ordered from Thai Square so many times I've lost count. My husband and I live off of Columbia Pike and have never been disappointed. I'm convinced that its so low on the list of places to eat in Arlington bc it's a neighborhood favorite and not really a tourist spot.

I'm not an expert of a huge fan of Thai food but, after hearing so many good things about this place and especially from the Washington Post food critic, I decided to try it and I'm glad I did. I got the crispy squid and some eggplant dish and it was excellent. I will definitely be back. I ordered the... More

When we are in Washington DC we always include a dinner at this restaurant. We also sometimes eat lunch at this restaurant. It is always very good and sometimes awesome. They have the usual Thai dishes as well as the exotic specialties including pigs feet, Salted dry fish and tripe soup. The curries are excellent and they will make them... More

Visited on recommendation from Thai friends, who say this is their favorite Thai restaurant in the area. Shared a large tom kha kai (delicious hot soup with chicken, mushrooms, peppers, and lemon grass in coconut broth), a plate of nua pradprick kraprao (sauteed beef), and a plate of crispy honey roasted duck with basil. Absolutely loved the soup. The duck... More

We went there for lunch because of the wonderful reviews. Ordered 3 dishes. Pad Thai, shrimp in green sauce, and crispy duck with basil. The shrimp this was very tasty but both the pad thai and the duck was quite bad. Not even average. The service was very slow despite the fact that it was half full. Won't be back.

If you are looking for authentic (not Americanized!) Thai food in the Arlington area, look no further than Thai Square. I've been eating here for years and the food never disappoints. It's just become unjustifiably expensive for a restaurant that's not for fine dining. So I've reduced my visits. Still would recommend it though.

I will start by saying we LOVE Bangkok 54--- but on advice of our new neighbors and the fact it is a 5 minute walk, we checked it out. Very cute on the inside and can handle easily both a couple and a group of 20 (right next to us). We had the highly recommended crispy honey duck--- really flavorful... More

I live over an hour away from That Square, and yet I still make the drive anytime I'm hungry for Thai food. It recently had a bit of a makeover inside, and the look is definitely more modern than before. It's still a wonderful "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant, and in this case, that's meant as a loving complement. The food here is... More

I should probably begin this by saying that Thai is probably not my #1 favorite food. I like it - but what I like is limited. My favorite Thai dish is Drunken Noodles, and I was very disappointed that it wasn't on the menu. I had the Garlic Shrimp, which was good... but that was it. Nothing else came with... More
