Dining options: Reservations
Neighborhood: Soho
Description: This cosy branch of the popular Thai Square chain does exactly what it says on the tin. A forever-busy Thai restaurant on a small street connecting Wardour and Dean Streets, it's more often than not packed with jolly crowd too busy chatting, eating and having a good time to care much about the rather basic décor. A consistently good menu is based on an affordable assembly of pan-fried dishes, curries and reliable noodle dishes such as pad Thai and a particularly tasty gang mussamun (with potatoes and peanuts). Highlights of a strong veggie selection include a sweet n' satisfying toa hoo pad khing (pan fried bean curd). Service is genuinely friendly. Top choice for a quick good value bite

We booked this as part of a theatre ticket deal and were extremely pleased with the meal! The setting is on a quiet side street in Soho, the service and meal were fantastic. I had read some negative reviews but was pleasantly surprised to have great service and delicious freshly cooked Thai food and great cocktails. We literally couldn't fault the experience and would definately go back next time we're in the area.

We purchased a meal at this restaurant as part of a Theatre Deal to see The Commitments at The Palace Theatre. It was a perfect location and within walking distance which was great. Lovely little, quiet side street. We found the staff really pleasant and the service excellent. The food was very good - early bird menu and portions. I would definatlely go back there.

I was with family visiting from overseas. We came here as the restaurant we'd hoped to visit was full and other nearby restaurants were also full. I should've known to look elsewhere when we arrived and the place was fairly empty but hoped it'd be okay as my last visit to Thai Square's Trafalgar Sq branch about 5 years ago was good.

The service was poor and the staff seem disillusioned. We had to stand up in order to get the waiter's attention on several occasions. The food was bland and generic slush - difficult to tell one dish from another. This was the most disappointing Thai meal I've had (and I've had many), my family were similarly disappointed in the food. The beer and wine was overpriced. The restaurant looked in need of desperate refurbishment.

The men's toilets were a disaster area with brown packing tape being used to seal an electrical socket which was hanging off the wall, a cracked mirror that looked as though it was about to fall off the wall, holes in the ceiling and shed hinges bolted onto the toilet cubicle doors to hold them together.

If they fully refurbished the place, replaced the cook and waiting staff then it may be a lot better. At the moment it's worth avoiding and trying one of the far better restaurants in the area.

We stayed in the flat directly above this restaurant so it was extremely convenient for us. All of our group are big Thai food fans so we decided to give it a go. It was very good food, nice and helpful staff. Everyone enjoyed the food so much we decided to return again for dinner a couple of nights later. Everything was reasonably priced, had great flavor, and came relatively quickly. The pineapple ice cream and mango sticky rice was awesome.

Wonderful food in a modern setting. Friendly, prompt service. Good value. It's a little gem tucked away from the main thoroughfare. Would definitely visit again.
