Dinner with Mum

Mum took my girlfriend and Me here as a treat. We both love Thai and having looked at the menu and reviews on here I knew it would be good. I love the intimate feel of the place, and I was glad when the hen party was directed up-stairs :) the service was great and the food was amazing -... read more

The Thai food is delicious - very tasty and of a high quality standard. The best part for me however was the option to sit outside, enjoying the busy Brighton streets as we ate; it was very pleasant. I recommend this place a lot

I've lived in Brighton nearly 20 years, but somehow have never been to the GS, and I have to say I was a little disappointed. My squid starter was greasy, my Jasmine rice over cooked to the point you could have served it as sticky rice. My partners dish (Koong Chu Chi) was luke warm at best. I can only... More

You can't beat the Giggling Squid for a special night out in Brighton. We had a tasty Chicken Paneang with just the right amount of spiciness. Prawn Pad Prik was sweeter & delicious. Don't miss out on the duck spring rolls!

I visited this restaurant yesterday with my daughter and grandson. The food was absolutely fabulous and when we said we were celebrating my birthday they gave us crackers and dip on the house. The service was exceedingly friendly and prompt. A thoroughly great lunch

The food is pricey but so ultimately delicious. The duck spring rolls are amazing, and it is the perfect place for a celebration.

Was in Brighton for pride parade (which was severely delayed due to a bomb suspected threat) We fancied some lunch and spotted the giggling squid, nice concept and friendly staff. Food was good but not brilliant but the prices were good so can't complaint.

Had a lovely tapas meal at this delightfully small restaurant in the heart of Brighton. Very small restaurant so you may have to book but we managed to get a table straight away. Very good service and the food was excellent!
