About Giggling Squid Chichester

My husband and I sat in the basement of a tiny, tiny fisherman’s cottage (now our Brighton restaurant!) way back in 2002 and pulled together our first Thai Tapas menu. Our idea was to cook simple, rustic, fresh Thai food. We wanted a menu that people could eat like they do at home. In Thailand, mealtimes are all about lots of dishes that everyone shares.

A group of friends celebrated a belated birthday. We were offered lots of expertise around the menu and the service remained attentive throughout the evening. The presentation and flavours were very good and we all agreed that we would return. Well done.

The initial service, once seated was a bit slow, but the quality and taste of the food was well worth waiting for, we will definitely visit again.

Really super - thanks. A birthday celebration, and the team made it so special with the extra touch of a birthday cake! Food delicious. A little bit of a wait (could tell the team were rushed off their feet), but all fine. x

Just another bland chain restaurant with inflated prices that will be popular with bland middle class white people.

The food was excellent and we really enjoyed our meal overall however there were a few service problems which spoilt it.... forgetting one main order, taking too long between first and mains. Having to wait to have an order taken for a drink on arrival. I think this is due to lack of experienced waiting staff. I will however go back because the food was so good and, I felt, excellent value for money.

On 2 occasions dishes ordered have not come together and I had to ask for them. I was charged £1 for changing from jasmine rice to coconut this was sorted with general manageress but yesterday I had to tell the stand in ? Manageress of her previous mistske ad she was going to do the same again. I always have broccoli and Pacchoi, but yesterday some was piping hot and some was icy cold!! However I love it here and I’ve been many times and will continue Nice staff always pleasant & friendly

Service was very slow which was a shame.. 15 minutes to get a drink while sat at the bar area and then 2 hrs or more for a 2 course meal! Was lovely food and the staff were very nice just a shame about the time gaps

Really enjoyed our meal, noisy busy atmosphere which we didn’t mind but not somewhere for a quiet meal. First visit & we found the menu daunting as there was a massive choice - probably too much choice. Food lovely. Not a cheap restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

My first (and not last trip) to the Giggling Squid. Deliscious food and wine, both reasonably priced. A small mix up with one of the main meals but this was compensated by being removed from the bill even though it was thoroughly enjoyed.

The service was excellent and the inside of the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. It was my daughter's 18th birthday and the staff were just wonderful and made it very special. Fab food, great atmosphere, good value - what's not to love!! Definitely will be returning,

I appreciate saturday is busy. we had to ask for a 2nd drinks order, try to find someone for soy sauce, table was only half cleared, asked for the bill twice took 10 mins for the bill to come. You are new and it takes time to train the staff. I did not see a manager overseeing the section making sure staff were on the ball. Did not have Makon in stock. food we excellent, children’s menu is the best we have seen. will come back again.
