This is my go-to Thai restaurant in town. The food tastes very Authentic (I am Thai) and you can tell by so many Thai customers visiting this restaurant.

My family tries to make it to Thai Square at least once every visit. The menu is large, service is excellent. Food is uniformly good. We always have Tom Khai Gui, dried beef strips, and crispy duck.

I have been waiting to return to this restaurant for a long while now and finally had the courage to fight for 2 parking spaces. Thanks to a Sunday Football game, no sweat, luck was on our side! Voila, 2 parking spaces within steps of the restaurant. We were also relieved to see the restaurant was "dead" which meant better... More

I do like this restaurant although I have to admit I get annoyed at the service. The food is very good with large portions. As long as servers are not putting their fingers in my food, I enjoy it and can overlook the service missteps. They definitely jump on your plate the second you put your fork down, which I... More

I first visited this restaurant when a friend from Thailand was visiting the DMV and she raved about having an authentic Thai meal. Well, I have visited Thai Square numerous times since that recommendation and I often take guest their for dinner. I have order many things on the menu and have not been disappointed yet. It seems the restaurant... More

If you are looking for some authentic Thai food, this is the place. Some favorites are: crispy squid with basil ( the crispy duck is also good), sun dried beef with sticky rice, papaya salad, wide noodles (phad see euw). The phad thai I would not recommend. Parking is a little tricky, but they have somebody to help you out... More

This is a small, quite place with great food. The crispy duck was outstanding, best I have ever had. Pad Kee Mao was quite good; it was nicely spiced and had a delightful flavor that I couldn't quite identify. Pad Lard Na was good but not exceptional. Service was quick and friendly and the prices were reasonable.

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.

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 like me that don't... More

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
