Thai Square in Angel, is very spacious, the interior is very contemporary with a Thai influence, dark woods, copper, bamboo and brushed steel with ornate dragons and buddhas, it’s certainly a stylish restaurant to dine in.
For starters we had chicken satay and grilled scallops, whenever you go to a Thai restaurant you can never go wrong with chicken satay, these were good and seasoned very well, a thumbs up from us. The grilled scallops was served with a spicy chilli dressing with aromatic herbs, it did have a kick to it, for those not use to chilli, but my goodness, they were cooked to perfection, with a zing from the lime and chillies, the only sad part was, the starter is served with only two. I could have easily ordered another two.
For the main I opted for the soft shell crab Apple salad, the soft shell crab is battered and deep fried, served with fresh sliced green apple mixed with spicy dressing roast coconut flakes and fried shallots. This was priced at a very reasonable £8.95, the seasoning was good and the crab was nice and tender. My guest had the Green chicken curry, the green curry paste is cooked in coconut milk with lime leaves, aubergines, bamboo shoots and basil leaves, it had a nice amount of spice, the chicken was cooked well and deliciously fragrant.
For dessert we had the chocolate pudding, with a chocolate liquid served with vanilla pod ice cream. It was chocolatey with the right amount of sweetness, I’m a big fan of desserts and for me chocolate pudding is always a winner, if you prefer fruit desserts, they have a great selection of special Thai fruit desserts. The food at Thai Square is very reasonably priced and the Thai food is definitely worth trying. They have around 12 branches in London, so pretty easy to locate.
