Love this place

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.

We tried this restaurent a few months back. Service couldn't be faulted. Intimate and friendly. The food seemed to me to be authentic. Wine was served at correct temperature and good value for money.

Eaten here three times now: the fixed menu was very good, I didn't like the squid dish I had on visit number two, and my lunchtime visit was very good. The food all seems to be prepared to order and is always full of flavour. The service is attentive and one is always made to feel well looked after. It's... More

Birthday girls night out. Booked table for six for Mum's 78th birthday. Food & service was second to none. Great atmosphere & Mum treated like a queen. Whole restaurant sang happy birthday. Staff were fantastic & food out of this world. Well done Giggling Squid.
