We regularly get takeaway from Giggling Squid, and the quality is always excellent. The rice is always delicate and cooked well, the classic dishes are always top notch. You may find cheaper Thai elsewhere, but the quality at Giggling Squid keeps us coming back.

My partner and I enjoyed a fabulous evening at the Giggling Squid in Tunbridge Wells following some cocktails at a local bar next door. The food was so divine I could dine there every night! It was too much for us so we ended up having the leftovers taken home for another day. Highly recommend this to anyone.

This is a really great Thai restaurant. The staff are friendly and knowledgable regarding the food, and offered insightful recommendations about the food. The food itself is incredibly flavoursome. The starters we had were the duck spring rolls and the salt and pepper squid, both of which were really good. For means, we had a red curry and another Thai... More

Heard good reports about this place and it lived up to the recommendations. We went as a group of 4 and had a lovely meal. Staff very pleasant and attentive from start to finish. Food freshly prepared and very tasty. You need a good appetite to go through 3 courses so be careful! I had a roast duck starter of... More

My partner and I absolutely love Thai cuisine and decided to book a table here for dinner after being intrigued by the menu during a shopping trip in the town centre. All I can say is wow, and can I come again very soon!!! To start, you have to get over the fact there are only two dinner sittings and... More

This was our third or forth dinner in this restaurant. Food is always good and the restaurant is always full. So remember to book in advance. The food is quite authentic, and they can make it hot or mild. Selection is superb. I liked stuffed baby squid and the dish was so big, I couldn't finish it all. Wine selection... More
