The food was absolutely fantastic! Squid starter was outstanding and the Sea Bass tasty and well presented Unfortunately... the restaurant was FREEZING cold! I felt uncomfortably cold for the duration of our meal. Some guests in coats. It's a very small restaurant which is part of its charm but tables are very close together as a consequence. There was a... More

Our first time at the Giggling Squid, have visited it in an earlier guise. A Massaman curry, Jungle Curry, coconut rice and a Pad Thai between the two of us was more than enough...in fact too much. Everything was hot, spicy and tasty and decent value.

Great location as plenty of pubs all around to get you ready for an excellent Thai. Quirky venue & decor, good service & all the classics you would expect on the menu. A little light on the meat in all the dishes but really good flavours & spice as you would expect. Would go back.

Reserved a table for Saturday evening for two at 6.45pm - not too busy and we didn't have to wait at all.The tables are quite close together and there's definitely a cramped feel to the place, but after various friend recommendations it was time we gave Giggling Squid a try. The food is amazing - everything is well presented, the... More

Great restaurant, bit squashed at the table but the food more than made up for that! We had the tamarind duck, drunken beef with pad Thai and the sharing platter to start - amazing! We'll definitely go again!

Well one with fantastic food atmosphere, staff everything. Pad Thai Chicken fabulous, lamb shank unreal. Can't praise it enough I would be back tomorrow if I was still here one if our party is a bit of a Thai expert and could not praise it enough. I just loved it can't say anymore.

My husband & I are great fans of Thai cuisine & we kept hearing about the Giggling Squid so we decided to pop in there for lunch. We weren't disappointed. The staff were super friendly, attentive, knowledgeable on the menu & food. The building is decorated very nicely, it's light modern & chic, there aren't to many tables crammed in... More

Meeting friends in Brighton so decided this was the most consistent food we'd had and would cope with our friends picky tastes. Again, brilliant food and service however booking for this place is always an issue. We were running late due to the storm and when contacting them to let them know we were going to be 10 mins late... More

Took my wife here for her 40th and we were both amazed how subtle the flavours were and the quality of the food was amazing with very friendly staff - would definitely recommend and didn't realise there were restaurants up and down the uk - didn't feel at all like a 'chain' thought it was a family run place. Go... More
