Lunch

We visited for lunch. Had some Tapas dishes. Food was amazing and service was good. Reasonably priced for the amount of food we had. Definitely worth a visit, we will be returning.

A friend recommended this restaurant to me and boy I'm glad she did. Although it took me quite a few attempts to get through I booked a table. It's a small and compact restaurant, we sat downstairs and it was a warm evening. The food was out of this world. We had the sharing platter to start with and one... More

I visited here at lunchtime with a friend and shared some tapas dishes. It was delious - one of, if not the best, Thai I've ever had. Service was good, not increadbly fast but attentive and relaxed and we didn't feel like we were being rushed. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely return

MY boyfriend took me for lunch here for my 30th birthday. We both chose food from the Tapas set and it was amazing, although some was a tad too spicy for our liking. Overall, I definitely recommend the Giggling Squid, it's one of Brighton's best Thai restaurants.

We often return to this restaurant for their lunchtime tapas menu whenever we're in Brighton and have never been disappointed. We have taken friends there, and also recommended it to others, who have also been impressed. People must remember that this restaurant is in an old building and so the rooms are spread over several floors, are quite small and... More

Now we all cock up but when you have to wait nearly 2 hours for what in essence was 2 curries without any explanation from the waiting staff as to the delay, we became a little peeved not to mention hungry. Having seen the rest of the lower floor arrive after us but get fed first made us think that... More

Thai food being one of my favourite food, I have eaten in quite a few Thai restaurants but this restaurant is definitely special and one to remember. Firstly, I love the concept of Thai tapas and living in London I wish they had a branch closer to home. The food is absolutely amazing and my favourite is definitely the squid... More

Me and my partner went to Giggling Squid after hearing rave reviews from my sister and it certainly did not disappoint! The menu is very extensive with lots of fish, beef, chicken and vegetarian options; all of which are clearly marked with dietary needs and spice levels. Me and my boyfriend shared three started - the chicken satay, fish cakes... More

So. I went previously on a date there and my food was really good. Therefore, I thought I'd take my friends here as well. However, I didn't think they could beat the food experience from before but they did! It was genuinely even better than what I remembered! It was amazing! It looked amazing too! I will be coming back.... More
