Was a great, dependable Thai Restaurant but it closed over a year ago. They do have a sister restaurant up by Tyson's Corner in the plaza with DSW, Staples, etc.

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on a recent visit to the Arlington area. The waitress was very personable, the interior was a little funky but, hey, this was a quick lunch. The food was very good and reasonably priced, and more than we could eat. The steamed dumplings were delicious, nice and light and seasoned just... More

It was great to be able to have some Thai food delivered right to the hotel. The food was very tasty for delivery. Not the best Thai we have ever ate, but we were not in a 5 star restaurant either. $50 for enough food to feed 5 people...how could you go wrong?

The service is excellent and the menu is extensive. My favorite is a spicy shrimp and eggplant dish. Everything I have ever had there was delish. Nice atmosphere.

A group of us went for lunch. Lunch menu had some very interesting lunch menu. All dishes were less than $10. My Wan Ton soup was uninteresting and the meat inside the noodles was hard. The shrimp and chicken served with noodles that were stuck together was spicy but did not real grab me. Staff was very attentive and helpful... More

I would be too kind to say this was average Thai cuisine. My aunt told me about this place so I had to try it out. It was far below my expectations. It. Is pricey for a hole in the wall. And I love hole in the wall restaurants but this is no diamond in the ruff. Pad se ew... More

I thought this was a hole in the wall restaurant by the look from the outside but that all changes when you walk inside. My noodles dish was hot and spicy but the portion was small. Staff was friendly. I wouldn't go there again, but that's just me,

Food was average. Service was nothing to write home about. It was pretty empty and sitting outside we were constantly barraged with passing vehicles. Nothing to write home about. Might have been an off day since it was during the week. I would say 2-3 stars, gave it 2 just b/c we were expecting more from a Thai place.

Pretty authentic. Good prices and value. The only thing that keeps it being 5 of 5 stars is that the menu is not as authentic and having unique items offered at Thai Square. A good consistently good meal every time.

Good food with good value and service. Kind of off the beaten path but worth the trip.
