Went midweek with work colleagues to this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised at the Thai-ness of the food! Delicious! Brings back fond memories of holidays. Would recommend the Squid and the Moo Pong (pork skewers). The service was really good, albeit a little slow for the large number of people we had in our group, understandably! Comes highly recommended and... More

We met up with our family for an early supper in Crawley as we were going to watch our granddaughters sing in the Hawth theatre. We decided to give the Giggling Squid a go despite mixed TA reviews. We had a delicious, very genuine Thai meal. We had pork dumplings, seared scallops and salt and pepper squid for starters and... More

We went to the Giggling Squid in Crawley for lunch. I know there is one opening in Maidstone soon and wanted to try it and as we were in the area it was a good opportunity. The portions were referred to as Tapas and were very small. i.e. a scallop dish contained 1 scallop. the dumpling dish had 2. For... More

This month, my son and I try to go to a different place every few weeks choose this place and we not disappointed. Well presented and even better tasting food and very authentic Thai for that. Service was friendly, efficient without being pushy or overbearing. All in all, excellent all round and this place comes highly recommended indeed

not much to say about this place. Some of the food was not cooked properly. Some people were having a row and going in and out of the place leaving the door open. The ice cream was interesting but we ended up in the loo

An early dinner at a quiet table, excellent food, sunlight pouring thru the skylights, a pleasant murmur from the bar part of the restaurant next door, and friendly attentive servers made this a great meal. Even the ubiquitous Pad Thai was richly spiced and beautifully presented - the egg fried into a lace-like topping and a carved rose (of taro... More

Absolutely cracking thai food in the middle of crawley high street. We've been here many times and it rarely disappoints. can recommend the sea food dishes, particularly the thai mussels as a started and the mixed sea food stir fry (scallops, prawns, squid, mussels) is delicious. The thai lunch time tapas dishes are extremely good value and a great mix... More
