Best Thai we have ever had! Presented well in a quaint restaurant, if you want to go in the evening I suggest you book, as we tried but couldn't get a table, so returned the next day for lunch! We will defiantly return!

Great food - think this place is a chain but don't let that put you off. All the food was delicious. Especially recommend the "Healthy Duck" which was the best Thai curry I've ever had! Can't recommend it enough - even though the name doesn't make it sound THAT appealing!

Having been to an early evening gallery opening in Hove, we just wanted a tasty bite to soak up the bubbles! Most of the restaurants at the Hove end were quiet but not The Giggling Squid! Here was a busy and buzzy restaurant. We popped in and nabbed a table for two. As we were just having supper, Fiona and... More

A quaint little building over three floors that I could imagine could be a little cramped if busier. Reasonably attentive staff. Men's bathrooms could do with a good clean. I loved that you could just choose a dish (called a "Tapas Set" on the menu) that contained a variety of 4 offerings, that meant I didn't have to spend too... More

It was our first time. The atmosphare was quit nice. And the food arrived really fast. There is a big variety of meals where you can choose what you want. If you never ate this before there are some complete meals with salad meat and rice which makes it easier. We will defenetly go again :)

I went there today and had one of the tapas special deals. The ducks roll were cold and had bones in. The lamb had a lump gristle that was very unusual and found a thick hair in my lamb massaman curry. The staff very rude when we told them about the food, no apology, very sarcastic and aggressive. The manager... More

So, its a little cramped in there! The staff are great and both the food and drinks arrived very fast! I was a little disappointed that the Tapas Thai menu was just for lunch ... but I can see why they want to maximize prices in the evening. The food wasn't the most authentic I have had - not as...
