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. The staff are lovely, they will do anything for you and are always there to help. They are so welcoming. If you are going to visit, you must try... More

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.

Went with two colleague for a post work meal on a Monday evening. Staff were friendly and the menu varied but not too many choices. We ordered a Duck Curry, Jungle Curry, Chicken with Cashews, Prawn Pad Thai and of course Jasmine Rice… all to share. All were delicious although the jungle curry did pack a bit of a kick... More

Having been here a few times with both groups and as a couple I think its a really nice restaurant to visit. The service is very good, they are attentive and friendly and they don't make you feel rushed. The food is really nice, fresh and tasty. I am not an expert in Thai food so although I like the...

This is a reasonably priced Thai restaurant. The food is very tasty and it always comes fairly quickly. Great for business lunch or a quick lunch
