About Giggling Squid Cheltenham
The New Thai Restaurant Giggling Squid is a Thai food sensation. The simple, rustic, fresh food of Thailand. From street food to coastal specialties. Eat at Giggling Squid for startling flavours, amazing colours, and original textures.
Best restaurant for Thai food Everything is cooked from scratch by Thai chefs. Where practical ingredients are sourced locally. We have a love of seafood, and we have a wide range of dishes beyond that.
The best Thai food For lunchtime eating, our tasting 'sets' or our Thai tapas. An excellent way to try lots of different dishes in one go.
The food is delicious and very quick and fresh tasting. We’ve been twice, once for lunch, once for dinner, both were great. Portions are a lot larger than you think so you can over order. The service is friendly, it was very busy in the evening and the only downside was a lot of different staff coming to the table. Definitely recommend a try!
Loud .. average food .. filmed while eating .. all in All .. not good
Fresh and piping hot food served very promotly. Seating to bill for two people was an hour. Little pricey but expect this due to location in comparison to other Thai restaurants in town. Would like to try tapas but only available at lunchtime and not working locally, doesn’t make this possible.
A great and unique menu. Good service and atmosphere. Fab place to spend an evening.
Very tasty food and nice service however I did notice they offer you prawn crackers to nibble on and then charge you for them at the end? That I thought was very cheeky especially at nearly 4quid a go. Food wise portions are decent and staff are nice however when I asked what’s in the dish ‘fishing village’ it was clear the staff did not know what was in it and seemed to be making it up on the spot. Reasonably expensive for what you get however the food is tasty but be cautious about the discretionary 10% service charge at the end although they give you the option to remove it I doubt many people feel comfortable doing so it’s an easy few extra quid out of the table, I know we certainly felt uncomfortable and didn’t feel like we could remove it. I probably wouldn’t return again and I think there are better places to eat however it is worth a visit but I wouldn’t go crazy for it.
Staff were friendly and food was AMAZING
Great food and service
The lamb massaman curry was absolutely amazing
Amazing food and great food. Service was a little inconsistent. Aforementioned food (and the great value) definitely warrant recommendation.
Great service and amazing Thai food. Hope to come back in November for my birthday!
Great food, friendly staff.
Fabulous food and experience and lovely staff
Great place for a relaxed lunch with family or friends. Love the tapas - you can try different things.
We were sat upstairs and it was very noisy! I think with very little soft furnishings there is nothing to absorb the noise. Also the service was a little on the slow side as we were sat waiting for our mains to be taken away for some time after we had finished. Other than that the food was really tasty and the staff were friendly
We went for a birthday lunch. This was our first visit and we all enjoyed it. I was very pleased that the curry could be served mild rather than medium to hot.
Service was good, quick and we enjoyed our night. However, when I went to the toilet there was no running water and I had to go into the men's toilet to wash my hands and the tap was cold.
Will definitely be coming back!
Very tasty food and beautifully served in a lovely environment.
Great food beautifully presented and at a great price - whats not to like?!!
Everything was lovely and the food was fantastic! Wine selection is a little pricey but it was very nice.
Service was uniformally pleasant if seemingly a little unfocused and, initially slow. Allowing a large delivery of goods through the restaurant during lunchtime service was not the best decision. Finallly we were 4 but some tapas arrived in 3s. Not very intuitive.
Great food love the tapas lunch :)
Amazing afternoon spent at a beautiful venue. We had a party of 11 and all food came out hot and at the same time. Our waiter was very attentive and made sure we all had what we needed. Excellent service and we all agreed we would be back again! Thank you!
Nice meal! Very good Tai cuisine, wonderful deserts!
