Have recently just for the first time tried Giggling Squid in Royal Tunbridge Wells and had probably the best Thai meal I've ever eaten. We opted for a takeaway and the food was all brilliantly presented, tasted amazing and was piping hot and fresh! The food is a little pricey but then again you get what you pay for and... More

Good, tasty food, I've not heard anyone say anything bad about this restaurant and I had a good experience there myself. However, I wouldn't put it in the 'cosy restaurant' bracket. Much the same as other oriental restaurants, they don't create quite the same ambience as English restaurants.

We've eaten here on a number of occasions since moving into the area about one year ago. We thought it was good on trhe first occasion and have never felt it necessary to change our opinion. The food is of a consistently high standard. The staff are very friendly, cheerful and attentive.

We eat here for the first time early Sunday evening. We were greeted cheerfully and service continued well throughout. Decor was fresh and airy plenty of interesting driftwood although had the look of work in progress, the Gentlemans Room in particular needing attention with light fittings hanging off the wall by their wires and missing lamp shades etc! The Menu... More

Would highly reccomend the fishing village dish, SOOO tasty! The mixture and amount of seafood makes it such good value. The choice on the menu is excellent, there's something for everyone, the quality of the produce is very noticable. Also, the coconut rice is the best I've ever had, so much fragrant flavour. Great presentation and excellent serivce - not... More

First trip here last night, and it was very good. The service was fast and reliable and delivered with a smile, and the food very good. My only reason for four instead of five stars was that the service was almost too fast. Everything went so much like clockwork we almost felt like part of a process - but it's... More

All round good restaurant, part of a growing chain and you can see why. Vibrant atmosphere and pleasant staff, varied menu with some interesting variations on well known Thai dishes, and generally good value. And unlike other Thai restaurants, you don't feel like they are trying to rush you through service to get the next cover in!

Set tapas lunches served from the menu are just the right size for one person and great to mix and match as a group
