The waiter stood back from our table when talking to us. He had a very quiet voice so it was very difficult to hear what he was trying to say, particularly with a slight language barrier. He needed to be far more confident.

Very enjoyable evening, no issues with the food or the service at all. The only issue I have is that the 10% service charge is added onto the bill automatically and this bothers me. In this case, the service was very good and I would have given the tip (possibly bigger than the 10% and therefore you are actually undercutting the staff). I understand that the customer can ask to remove this but I’m sure that you’re aware that this can make the customer very uncomfortable (surely not something that you wish to do). The decision to tip should be made by the customer and relative to the service they feel they received. It should not be expected. Other than this, I really liked the restaurant and would return.

The dish I had - chicken manasan (or something similar) had a large amount of not well cooked onion and very little chicken. Not good quality at all for the price.

I have always had top service and delicious meals when dining at the Giggling Squid and it is my favourite restaurant at the moment! I wish I lived closer to Bury St Edmunds so I could eat there more!

Our 35th wedding anniversary and greeted with complimentary glasses of prosecco. It's those sort of touches that people like.

Once our main course plates had been cleared, nobody offered us a dessert menu or tea/coffee. We had to ask twice for the bill too!

Fabulous night at Giggling Squid. It was a Thursday and probably 3/4 full. The staff were very friendly. The food, as always, was impeccable. We were the last to leave but the staff were in no hurry to rush out the door. Absolutely love Giggling Squid - they get it right every time. thank you for a lovely evening.

unfortunately the restaurant was a bit noisy because of a couple of large groups of people however this obviously isn’t any fault of the restaurant! I have to say that we didn’t really recicive a warm welcome on arrival and the person who should is to our table was not friendly at all. Also when we came to pay at the end there was nobody at the til so we had to wAit quite some time to pay. I would also prefer to not have a service charge added to the bill as I prefer to tip the waiter that has looked after us during the meal

I love your BSE restaurant. I take friends and family there regularly. Your staff are consistently great and the food is consistently divine. I am gradually working my way through the menu!
