Looking for somewhere to eat on Crawley high street, this restaurant appeared most busy - and now I know why! Attentive and friendly staff, a good choice of reasonably-priced food that was tasty and provided in generous portions. I would definitely go back

Try to steer clear of crawley but have this one a go to see. Friendly enough staff but our table by a door that leaked cold air like a sieve. Starter one was ok the other needed to be warmer. Main course very average and the blandest noodles I have ever eaten. Prices reflect a much higher level of flavour... More

Ate with a few business colleagues. First piece of advice if its cold do not sit in what I believe was the old court yard entrance to the old hotel, its freezing. We had a bunch of mixed starters to share the pork dumplings, chicken satay, salt and pepper squid and springs rolls were al to die for. Especially the... More

Giggling Squid is my favourite restaurant in Crawley. I go nearly every weekend as I love it so much. The food is fantastic, I have not had one bad meal there.

Food was good, portion sizes were right. Taste sensations for the various dishes were electric and they serve Singha / Chang beers. Table service was good with smiling attendants who were keen for the banter making the meal all the more enjoyable.

Surpisingly good Thai food in th middle of Crawley. I've been there several times but wanted to comment on the recent visit. I had the Duck Spring Rolls - 2 freshly made rolls with 90% filling of duck meat and some slivered carrots, scallons and cabbage with plum sauce as MUST try! Entree was the Massaman Curry Lamb Shank mild... More

Staff excellent, parking straight forward. However, they did 'hover' a bit....wanting more sales I guess....food arrived,presentation was excellent but.....it was rather small and bland. A little disappointed actually. In fact all dishes rather ' over furnished', I.e. Too much garnish. Great expectations led to average experience.
