We were looking forward to dining here after reading a lot of positive reviews, but the only positive thing about our evening was the warm greeting in arrival. The food was average but over priced. The most disappointing thing was the staff who were so disorganized that it took 20 minutes for our plates to be cleared when we finished... More

Hi Johntu, Thanks for your review. I'm sorry our food didn't meet your expectations and, I must say, 20 minutes is a long time for your starter plates to be cleared. It would be great if you could tell us more about what happened that evening if you have time. You can contact me on help@giglingsquid.com Janet More

I telephoned our local Thai take away in Haywards Heath and they put me on hold …and then forgot me -RUDE! So I called the Giggling Squid in Crawley - It's 20 minutes from my home but we wanted thai so I hoped for the best. I have tried a few restaurants in Crawley and never had a good meal,... More

Visited this restaurant on the 15th of March 2014. Our friend like Thai food, so I decided to invite them to giggling squid. I had a dinner at this restaurant about 2 years ago. It had some nice reviews, so me and my wife gave it a try. Frankly, that was a very disappointing experience. Food was very average at... More

Visited here twice now & the food has been outstanding on both occasions, beautifull presented & tastes fantastic. Staff are friendly & very helpful, when we asked to change one of the dishes on a set starter selection there was no problem. Highly recommend the Giggling Squid.

Visited last night after My Thai in Crawley had 'lost' our reservation. Food was as usual excellent, and the service was great, staff where extremely helpful and efficient, despite it being full. Look forward to visiting again.

Wonderful decor and a very warm welcome. Service was excellent and the staff were very attentive. The wine selection was also excellent. Probably one of the best Thai meals I have had and would highly recommend

This has to be one of my favourite restaurant as I have been back several times over the last couple of years. The food its fresh, its simple, its authentic and serverd with a smile. Everything I have tried so far on the menu has been consistently good, prices are good value in my opinion too.

I have been visiting the sister restaurant of this one in Brighton for over 10 years now and it is my favourite restaurant ever. I love Thai food and I must've been to this restaurant over 10 times and it never ceases to impress me. My recent trip to this restaurant was fantastic. I had the chicken satay, pad thai,... More

Good food. Nicely laid out despite the large window having a draught! Good service. Good prices. WC could be updated! Will visit Horsham's GS once it opens. Have yet to visit Hove.

Exceptionally good Thai food, lovely staff and great value. Lunch sets are particularly well priced. Good location on the high street, though parking can be a problem on market day - Friday. The Pad Thai coverage in a pancake netting was a delight. Tip: You can get you're car washed and valeted in the car park of The George Hotel,... More
