I booked a table at this restaurant following a recommendation from a work colleague. I wanted to avoid the usual fayre of Italian and Indian restaurants which are in abundance in this area. The name alone was enough to intrigue me. Myself and 2 colleagues were taken to our upstairs table by very hospitable staff, and as the place was... More

Definitely the best Thai food in town. Very creative dishes alongside the standard favourites. Incredibly polite service and great value for money.

We often eat here, especially for lunch. Neither my wife or I are big eaters and the tapas style selections are perfect. We had 5 dishes between us which is ample. Previously we have had the fixed menu combo's which are great but variety is the spice of life. Service is always good but the background music could do with... More

Great little restaurant with plenty of tasty choices and combos. Staff are attentive and accommodating to slight tweaks to the menu.. If you're lost for choice, look at what next door are eating as the tables are very "snug!"

I've been here many time but have found recently that standards have slipped a bit. The menu hasn't really changed much but what's on there is still very good. The service can be hot and miss, is more hit than miss but when it's busy you can sometimes feel like a bit of an inconvenience. I would still go back... More

My food arrived soon after ordering and was piping hot and both courses excellent. Spicy, fresh and very tasty. Like many Thai's it was beautifully... More

We have been before, the last time we had the 'tapas lunch'. We thoroughly enjoyed that, so when we visited Brighton with friends we thought we would try the Giggling Squid for dinner - as we all like Thai food. Dinner was as good as lunch - well cooked and tasted authentic ( we have been to Thailand a couple... More
