We went with my daughter and boyfriend on a Saturday evening. We had an early booking as all tables for later had already been booked. Lovely and airy, good atmosphere, friendly staff and hot food. Would definitely return and recommend.

Popped in for a quick bite on our first day of Christmas shopping. There were three other tables still eating, even though we were quite late. Both of us ordered a soup and a single dish. I had Chicken and Cashew nut with rice, my companion had Beef and sticky rice. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. The beef... More

Have eaten here on at least 6 occasions over the last 18 months. Lunchtime menu is exceptionally good and the quality and flavours demand a repeat visit. Ate in the evening today and although a Friday night the restaurant was half empty which was a surprise. Perhaps it was the fact that three starters, two mains and three beers came... More

Went here last night for dinner with a friend. It was packed on a Thursday night so just as well I had booked. Décor all driftwood themed - to some tastes probably a bit overdone. Quite noisy as it was so busy, and tables squeezed in Parisien style, but the service was very friendly and attentive, and the food was... More

This was our first visit and we really enjoyed the food. Service was very good and the restaurant had a very buzzy atmosphere and was packed. Will definitely make a return visit.

I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The food is very tasty and the service has always been attentive. I love the lunch set menus, you can try a combination of different flavours at great value, good for someone like me who is struggling to make a decision.. I like to come here when I need a... More

This chain is my second favourite Thai restaurant outside of Thailand (the best Thai in the Uk is Khoa San Road on Walmgate in York!) and I've been to both the Reigate and Tunbridge Wells locations now. The staff are friendly and attentive, the decor is lovely and the food is well presented and very tasty. The tapas lunch menus... More

Running out of decent places to eat in Tonbridge so decided to take the train to Tunbridge Wells. Very worthwhile. I looked up restaurant reviews on Tripadvisor, and chose the Giggling Squid, which seemed to have many praiseworthy comments. All well deserved. The ambiance, decor, furnishings are all excellent. The food is in a different league from other Thai restaurants... More

Nice food, friendly staff and worth a try. Good value too and not a bad location if you are in town. Probably worth booking at busy times. Service can be a tad slow, but worth a slight wait. Liked this place.
