Quite a small intimate Thai restaurant which can get busy at lunchtimes. As the seating area is small, the wooden tables are close together. They do have additional seating upstairs.
I was really happy with the friendliness of the staff at this restaurant. They did not rush us to take our orders and even when we had finished the meal, they did not make us feel that we needed to leave. All the staff were really attentive but not overpowering.
The taste of the food at Thai Square lived up to the aromas coming from the kitchen. We shared the Tod Mun Kow Pod corn cakes. These deep fried corn cakes were of a good size and were perfectly cooked. The sweet chilli sauce that they were served with was a tasty dipping sauce.
Thai Square does tempting set lunches. It was hard to decide whether to go for the set lunch, the Pad Thai or the green curry. We finally decided to have the Gang Kiew Wan Jay green curry.
This vegetarian green curry had lots of baby corn, mange tout, carrots and Thai baby aubergines. Even though this dish was stated as being spicy on the menu, when we asked for it to be made really mild, that’s exactly what was served. The coconut curry sauce had a lovely creaminess to it and it was really delicious. The portions of freshly cooked steamed rice and egg fried rice made the green curry a very hearty meal. All the dishes were nicely presented.
Dining at Thai Square was a very enjoyable experience and one that is highly recommended for the food and the service.
