For a packed Saturday night our service was remarkable. Drinks were instant and chilled. Food came so quickly. We were amazed. The food was excellent. One to go to if you're prepared to spend a lot of money though - the portions are small and, while delicious, very expensive for their size.

Loved the menu, enjoyed the flavours. Try it for yourself. Can't praise it enough. Polite and quick service. Very reasonably priced. Will try their lunchtime tapas next.

The food was fantastic, service was quick and food came quickly, and all priced as you would expect for a nice Thai. We had a fairly late booking and was all busy. A little squashed in but not so you were bumping elbows. We weren't offered dessert but that's probably because we chatted for too long and they seemed to... More

We have been to the Reigate Giggling Squid restaurant and it is one of the best meals we have ever had. The most authentic Thai food outside of Thailand in my opinion. We booked a table for 8 at the Brighton restaurant expecting something special... or at least similar. I should have known it was to be very different when... More

I shouldn't be telling everyone about this gem of a restaurant as it will become too busy! Great service, lovely food and reasonably priced. If you want lunch at the weekend, or a Friday or Saturday evening, you'll need to book.

Had a mix of starters all delicious and mains - 3 had the red thai curry and I had some sort of chicken stir fry which was beautiful! They also... More

I didn't know what to expect when it said 'Thai Tapas', but it was great. My meal came with four different tapas sections on one plate and it was all delicious. Thoroughly recommend if you're after some nice Thai food.

We'd been before in the summer at lunchtime when they offer Thai tapas which is varied and well priced. We also got to sit outside. back in Brighton over Christmas decided to go in the evening. Very disappointed. A very European Thai experience. Deep fried greasy starters, bland sauces that seemed as though they were out of a jar and... More
