Thai Square - Covent Garden

About Thai Square - Covent Garden

Located on Shaftesbury Avenue in the heart of London’s West End, Thai Square is a stylish and unique venue offering fantastic Thai cuisine and live jazz. The dining room at Thai Square, which is open until midnight during the week and until 2am Fridays and Saturdays, has granite floors, red and white walls and an imposing golden statue of Buddha - giving the restaurant an uptown ambience. Popular for business meetings, Thai Square has a chi-chi Thai menu featuring dishes such as the grilled lobster with garlic butter, the sea bass rolls served with curry, and the Tom Kha Pla soup - a coconut milk based soup with fish and lemongrass. The wine list is impressive, and the service is superb.
