Now Closed

Went there on 13 August 2015 to find it has been closed as it was a marginal profit maker for the chain and they are concentrating on their other branches

Have started to like this place whilst away on business. Easy walk from the Crown Plaza. Good food but sometimes a bit slow in coming. Red and green curries arrive with clever vegetable art.

The restaurant was well decorated. Li didn't like the rice that came in plastic bags where it had probably been steamed in the microwave.

We walked by and noticed this place has now closed. Such a shame as great Thai food. Search engine confirmed closure and directs you to their restaurant in Horsham. If you want Thai in Crawley there is always Lemongrass.

I just love eating here. The menu is extensive and service is fantastic. I have yet to get a poor quality dish. Salt and Pepper Squid delicious. Generous portions

It took me absolutely ages to decide what to eat - I would happily have eaten a number of meals. The meal I had was absolutely gorgeous! Full of flavour and really fresh ingredients. Thoroughly recommended!!

We had a very enjoyable meal with some lovely food - the mixed platter starter was particularly good, however my Paenang curry had nowhere near enough lime leaves in it and I found it strange that they only had sauvignon blanc available by the bottle, not by the glass.

Went to the Giggling Squid for dinner with my partner. The food was a very good standard and the service efficient and friendly. The price of food was fairly expensive and this took away from the value this place offers.

Best Thai food in Crawley. Not cheap but great food. Have eaten in and used takeaway service. Both are excellent. Will recommend to friend and have even taken my mum here for 3 birthday dinners.
