It is my favourite place to eat with friends. Amazing quality food for a decent price. Usually go for the Thai Green and the squid but the Pat Thai is also yum as well as the duck rolls. The service is fab too. I usually book a table for 4 and the little booth between the ground and 1st floor.... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with a great menu that has all the old favourites like Green Thai curry and pad thai, but also many interesting recipes that will keep you going back time and again. We had a superlative pad thai (really the best I've found in the UK), a lovely spicy massaman curry, and an unusual but... More

I have had friends tell me that they have been here and it was a good place to eat. The website shows very tasty looking meals. I was disappointed, the menu did not have a lot of choice. There was around 6 set meals with 5 dishes and most of these items you could buy separately for around £4. The... More

Recently moved to Hove, so still trying lots of restaurants. This is be far the nicest Thai. Liked the presentation of the food, also tasted good. Prices are higher than the other Thai restaurants we have been to - however the restaurant ambience is a worthwhile trade.

Amazing Thai food and Service. I am a regular of Giggling Squid in Horsham and loved this branch in Brighton, which has a wonderful outdoor area in the heart of Brighton - close to the beach. High quality of food and service - always!

We've been to the Giggling Squid on many occasions and always enjoyed the food. However, this time it was not quite up to its usual high standard primarily because of the main course of Seared Garnished Steak. The steak was of very poor quality and hard to chew and at £12.95 not good value for money. Saying that it hasn't... More

The masaman curry is lovely as is the satay chicken. As a takeaway i feel it is far too expensive and they don't chuck in any prawn crackers but eating in it is very good. Shame its not slightly more spacious tho

Probably the best Thai food in Brighton. A little hard to find in the Lanes but worth looking for Wine list good but no off-dry White Beer assortment needs improving!
