Excellent staff, chilled atmosphere, good food with reasonable prices! A must have dish are the butterfly prawns with a red curry and coconut sauce. Have to book over the weekend as it gets really full. Will go again with friends!

Stumbled across this thai restaurant in brighton city centre one evening while visiting for business. Was drawn to it by the name 'Giggling Squid' - thought that was unusual! So intrigued, in we went and we were glad that we did. It's a lovely cute, quaint thai restaurant that seemed very popular. It was nice, warm clean with modern décor.... More

Can not say enough in praise of this wonderful place. Staff are first class. Food is just perfect. There is absolutely nothing I would change. Just wish I did not live three and a half hours away :(

Wow, amazing food. Can't wait to visit again! Just loved it. Love the way you have tapas for one. Four dishes for one! Tasty food, lamb so tender it melted in my mouth!

Such a lovely place. Staff were patient as our gang were a hen party & might have had a few glasses of wine before we went in.. We ordered a mix of dishes so we could taste lots of things and nothing disappointed. I hope I'll have a chance to go back in the near future because it really made... More

With the family having visited kular Lumpar earlier in the year they fancied some Asian food, this was as good if not better I would highly recommend a visit and booking.

Yummy thai food. Food and service both very good. Green curry and pad thai. Lots of food too. If I had known I would have ordered less. Perhaps the staff could have pointed out that a dish really should be split between two people, especially with an appetiser. I guess what irked me was paying 4.50 pounds for a side... More

Visited Saturday lunch time, we were a group of 6 adults and a baby. Reservations were made 3 weeks in advance for a special birthday occasion. When we arrived the table was not set up, no high chair as requested and half of the cutlery was missing. The couple on the table next to us had to be moved to... More

Food was a joy. My friend had a fish selection (can't remember the title) and loved it. I chose a curry which was plentiful and delicious. Service was very friendly and attentive. We both enjoyed our visit and plan to return soon.

Loved this place! First visit this evening with some colleagues and would whole heartedly recommend. We were seated upstairs and were made to feel like the only customers there. The lovely Thai gentleman who seated us gave us excellent recommendations and was friendly and efficient. The food was sensational, not one bad word was said and we all tried some... More
