Thai Square Covent Garden

Located just up the road from Hankies Cafe an Indian restaurant I reviewed recently Thai Square is another of those hidden gems that you really should visit.  It’s the perfect place for Thai food lovers and great for those that need a quick bite before or after visiting the theatre.  Service is quick which was…
