This is a great restaurant and you'd never know it's part of a chain. It is equally as good as SuCheera just up the road. The squid starter...? I could have eaten a ton of it! The curries we had were delicious and the service very attentive and efficient. The place has a good vibe generally, the decor very attractive and it was certainly buzzing the night of our visit with a combined 21st and 60th on the next table. I can see it becoming a favourite!

Visited twice in the last couple of months. The first time was by pure chance, and we found the service to be slow and my wife's meal was on the cold side of tepid. Not overly impressed, we reluctantly returned with friends who have been to and loved the Brighton branch and were actually very impressed. Despite being very busy, service was very good and the food very nice and, crucially, hot!

Cannot complain about the overall taste of the dishes on either occasion which, temperature aside, was excellent.

Overall, I would give them benefit of the doubt and recommend. Pad thai a particular highlight.

I went here for lunch with colleagues from work as it had been recommended. I certainly wasn't disappointed, the food was great. The lunch menu had a wide choice of food all at a reasonable price. While we waited for our food to be served we were given a large dish of prawn crackers to nibble which is always welcome. I ordered from the Tapas Sets menu and had the 'One Giggling Squid' which consisted of Sleeping Honey Duck, Chicken Stir Fried with Ginger, Jasmine Rice and Thai Spring Rolls. All of this was served on a plate segmented into four separate parts and looked as good as it tasted. All this for less than £10, you can't go wrong having lunch here. I shall certainly be visiting here again and probably also trying one of the other Giggling Squid restaurants.

We were recommended by a friend to try the Giggling squid. We went for the lunchtime menu which can be as different set meals or you can make up your own. Very good, good bold flavours and very well presented. The staff were friendly and attentive without being overpowering - It was nice to see it was well attended by families. Would thoroughly recommend you visit!!

Our first time at the Giggling Squid but we will be back as the food, service and ambiance was very very good. It was also good value for money. Can't wait until the Maidstone restaurant is open as that will be closer to home.
