Great mix of flavours.

Ordered 'Two Giggling Squid'. Absolutely loads of food. Particularly enjoyed the salt and pepper squid however the beef salad was not my favourite. Will definitely return!

We stumbled across this little thai restaraunt when visiting Brighton for our anniversary. If we ever visit brighton again we'll be sure to revisit. The food was super fresh and really flavoursome. Recommended for all lovers of Thai and if you haven't eaten Thai before, this is a great reason to start!

Great food and very tasty. But they could add a little more coconut to meals because coconut is good, isn't it? It is also a little bit too pricy.

We started with Prawn Crackers and dip which were lovely. our started and main courses were beautifully presented and very flavoursome. We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Staff were... More

Up there with the tastiest, freshest, Thai food I have eaten. A choice of half a dozen set combination meals presented on a four section plate. I suggest you ask for a further plate from which to eat. For about a tenner, at lunch, you will seldom do better, and a nice bottle of Singha beer too. And housed in... More

Lunch with my daughter. We had the tapas style lunch. Food was excellent very tasty. We would both recommend the Thai red curry. Service was good and staff friendly. I only have one negative comment as it was only 2 of us and lunch. I was surprised to see a 10% service charge added automatically. Restaurant owner take note if... More

The lunch time menu has selection of Thai dishes which they are able to serve quickly. This makes the Giggling Squid good for lunch-breaks but the staff don't make you feel rushed either. The Thai Tapas are great if you are new to Thai food and want to try our some dishes or if you want a lighter lunch but... More

The food was delicious and arrived very promptly. I was particularly impressed by the attention to detail and personal touches on the menu, which explained the dishes very accurately. Service was excellent too and very friendly. My only small criticism was that the salt and pepper squid was quite tough, however this was a minor point in comparison with an... More

In the heart of the Brighton lanes is this little gem! We'd been recommended it by avfew people and I wish I'd gone sooner. Staff were lovely, the menus were mouth-wateringly good! I had the papaya salad for starter which was much, MUCH spicier than I expected but delicious. For main I had the best Thai green curry I've ever... More
