Pleasant lunch time Thai

We popped in on a Saturday lunch time and were seated upstairs. A couple of Pad Thais and some Duck rolls washed down with a Singha beer. Quick service, generous portions and tasty food. Well worth a visit

We booked the giggling squid way in advance as we knew it would be busy for valentines, it didn't disappoint! The food is so tasty and flavoursome and you can tell it's cooked by people that really know what they're doing. We had the massaman curry and the paneang curry (both delicious). I am a student and even I though... More

Visited on a Friday night. Excellent menu with something for everyone. Staff were excellent and very professional. Food was fresh and you could taste every ingredient. Excellent value for money and we will definitely be heading back again.

Went for a meal just before Christmas. Absolutely amazing flavours, almost like being in Thailand. Papaya salad was fantastic.Could have been a bit spicier but just added more chilli. Staff really attentive and so friendly. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes Asian food. Only disappointment was that we were seated upstairs which lacked a bit of atmosphere.

We had such a lovely meal here. The waiter was so patient and explained our options clearly and in detail. It was so easy to make the right design from the excellent and varied menu. And the wine choice was equally wide and clearly explained. The restaurant space is quite small and cosy, we loved it. Our starters were absolutely... More

the restaurant is located in small building set over 3 stories. The service is friendly and the food was exceptional, especially the spicy mixed seafood dish I had. Just be aware whilst the prices are not extortionate after extras (rice etc) the bill can add up, service is included in the bill too.

If you like thai food but want something a bit different this is for you. It has more than your average "Thai Currys" and "Pad thai". I had steak sizzler and my friend had a sizzling thai fish platter. Both were delicious. It gets very busy here so you need to book in advance. This is a great restaurant for... More
