SquareMeal Review of Thai Square Strand

With branches in central London & on a smattering of affluent Home Counties high streets, Thai Square is firmly pitched at the upper end of the scale. Interiors are dark & classy, staff are immaculately turned out in a smart contemporary take on traditional garb, & the menu is Royal Thai rather than noodle bar. The results are more hit & miss: top shouts include the likes of thinly sliced roasted duck breast with a sharp tamarind sauce, or steamed king prawns in a dish charged with garlic, lemongrass, chilli, galangal & lime leaves; on the downside, a southern Thai massaman curry has been disappointingly bland. Readers are equally divided, with some ‘impressed’ by both food & decor, but others berating the kitchen for using what they feel to be ‘cheap ingredients’. However, everyone agrees that the service can always be relied on to be ‘welcomingly Thai’.

Starting off… the staff was amazing and professional. They took care of us with perfect suggestions and were very informative. Starters came and were amazing. We are glad we went with the servers suggestion. Then came the main meal. Mixed platter with various dishes to share. Each one tasted perfect and it was such a great pleasure to eat the amazing Thai food. The taste was perfect and I was not going to miss out on a single taste bud experience. After the main meal, we got the perfect desert as suggested by the server. Besides all the above – I must say that the Thai Square restaurant itself is a beautiful building, and extremely well maintained and decorated. The lightning inside is beautiful and add to the atmosphere. Everything inside this place adds to your amazing dining experience.

Extremely disappointing green thai chicken curry. Not authentic and in fact very insulting to try and pass it off as genuine. Ruined the whole evening as had been very much looking forward to an authentic thai green curry all day. You won't get it here! Would highly recommend Busaba Eathai for authentic green thai curry. Will not be recommending Thai Square to anyone and will instead WARN against.
