We got take away for New Years eve and we had tai from here. It was ready within half an hour and it was just as good as when we normally sit down for a meal.

we have visited several times and always been pleased. Tonight we had the lamb shank mossamum curry - unusual for a thai restaurant- but beautifully tender and a real delight. Definitely one to come back for. On this cold wet Wednesday evening in January the welcome was warm and friendly. Special thanks to Sergi for looking after us. The prices... More

When I first visited the Giggling Squid, when it first opened, I loved it. Now I feel it's over priced and I'm paying for all those ornately carved swedes! Pretty but I can live without them. Since my last visit, they've moved the front door, this meant on an earlier January night at 8pm it was freezing in the restaurant... More

We visited for lunch to this small cosy place. Pew style seating and wooden tables, and average atmospheric lighting. We chose the set menu. Varies in prices and comes with starters and mains. Nice well cooked food with the chicken satay and mountains of sauce. The pork dumplings again were of a great calibre. The green curry was cracking too... More

We go here every year four our team xmas lunch. It never disappoints especially at lunch time as the food is lovely and amazing value for money. Staff are excellent and we had a lovely time. If you like Thai food this is a great place to go.

We bought two tapas groups, each just over a tenner, and shared them. well presented. nice variety. tasty. different. I had a couple of Singha bottled lagers to wash things down and they were good. We had to have... More

Great selection of food to fill you up. Tastes wonderful and ideal for a lunchtime meal if you're after something hot.

In a somewhat unlikely setting this compact branch of the Giggling Squid delivers a great lunchtime meal. The Thai tapas-stile selections are delicious, lovely fresh food, nice spicing, very good staff who make this all so good. Our favourites are the Hungry Squid and the Wealthy Squid menus, but all look great and everyone in the restaurant yesterday was eating... More

there was a lot to like about here, and some not to. The sharing starter platter was varied and interesting, the lamb for main didn't taste of anything- I.e. A piece of lamb that had been brought in and covered in sauce NOT marinated as the menu suggested. Would try again, but the menu could do with being a little... More
