Recently did a business trip back to my head office in London, we had a group dinner at this restaurant which is nearby.

We had one of the set menus which was about 40GBP per head. Overall the set menu was incredibly bland, there wasn't a standout dish, possibly the deep-fried starter selection was the best (eek!) and at $70 this doesn't represent good value for money at all.

On the positive side, being in the City of London, the service was professional and slick, just like you'd expect, and the venue was very swanky. The Christmas decorations had just been put up - and it all felt quite festive, unlike back in the Sydney sunshine where its a very false Christmas feeling.

Disclaimer: UK-Expat, having lived in Sydney for the past 3 years, Asian (especially Thai) food in Australia is equivalent to the standard/popularity of Indian food in UK.

Based on friendly notes, I visited Thai Square at the Minories. A great restaurant with an authentic Thai cuisine and very friendly staff! Always again!

Went on a Thursday night having found this place near our hotel.

Not too busy but it was a weeknight.

Food great. Service friendly and they were happy to make suggestions.

I ended up having the 'weeping tiger' - lovely but lives up to its name. My colleague had a Thai green curry which was first class.

Deserts excellent too.

Wine list a little bit limited in choice but not too bad.

Overall a lovely couple of hours.

Thank JPWhelan

Thai Square in The Minories is my favourite place in the City for a quick and informal lunch. I like the set menu with prawn crackers, rolls and satay chicken, followed by pad-thai and litchi (leechy) Juice. I particularly like the vary fast service downstairs in the canteen (it may take to long in the more formal restaurant one floor above), I do not like having to wait long to be served during my lunch break. The place is very big and you are almost guaranteed a seat even without booking.The waitresses are always pleasant, kind, efficient and discreet.

Thai Square in Minories, London EC3, is a huge, beautifully decorated restaurant on the eastern edge of the City. The restaurant is vast with no expense apparently having been spared on the décor and furniture. The food is very good, certainly the best Thai food in the square mile. What stands out apart from the smart surroundings is the lengthy menu - giving far more choice than in any other Thai restaurant I've visited, and the warm and friendly welcome and efficient service. Definitely suitable for business lunches or for an evening out with friends. Recommended.
