Looking out over one of London’s most famous landmarks, the flagship branch of Thai Square restaurant is a great choice for lunch or dinner near Trafalgar Square. Formerly the impressive Norwegian embassy, Thai Square is a seriously spacious venue full of traditional artefacts, heavy wooden doors and sprays of exotic flowers – perfect for laid-back lunches with friends and cosy romantic dinners. And when tourists invariably tumble in by chance, they are rewarded, as you will be, with excellent Thai cuisine. Thai Square’s authentic Thai menu is full of familiar favourites like fiery tom yum soup, fragrant green chicken curry and chargrilled duck breast with tamarind sauce. Vegetarians are spoilt for choice at Thai Square with delicious dishes like aubergine and shiitake mushrooms stir-fried with sweet basil and garlic. At the weekend, the club downstairs is open until 3am – perfect for diners who want to dance the night away in style.

The quality of the food served to is at this restaurant did not match that of the decor. Far from it.
I went to the restaurant on Saturday in a party of 12 people. Although the ambience and location were excellent, (love the solid wood entrance doors!) the food was at best average and not worthy of being described as Thai food - it was more like a local Chinese take-away.
The chicken satay I had as my starter was dry and tough to get out of the stick which would suggest that the raw chicken was previously frozen - yuk! All of the other items we ordered were under-seasoned and lacked traditional flavours of Thai cuisine. The service was also very poor with inattentive staff. We weren't even offered deserts or coffee!
The ONLY nice dish served to us was one portion of coconut rice.
We certainly won't be visiting this establishment again.
