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.

Bearing in mind the restaurant wasn’t busy we fellt that the table we were given, on the main thoroughfare to the toilets was a bit poor... it was also very hot as there is no air-conditioning.

Seemed very busy for a Tuesday night. Maybe a few more staff just as drinks took a long time to get.

We were celebrating my husband’s 30th and our wedding anniversary. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbles and we sat in a romantic bird cage! Very happy, food was amazing. Already recommended and can’t wait to go again!

Great staff (warm and welcoming), food was yummy and the cocktails were also very good. I would say that the food was quite expensive for what you get - similar to London prices and some dishes didn’t seem worth that price.

Lovely food, just very hot as no air conditioning & the service was slow they forgot our prawn crackers & when you are hungry that’s not good. The starters also came out with the main. Would try again though due to the lovely food

Service on both my visits has been very friendly but not very "slick". Some errors made and on my last visit our starters arrived and after a few minutes I had to ask for plates so we could eat it. We then had an extremely long wait for our main courses. I had to ask for our food in the end. We had two children with us and it made for quite a late evening which we hadn't planned upon. The food is good, especially the squid and som tum salad.

Hello. Had a good meal with you. Premises, food and staff all great. However some constructive, I hope, criticism. Our starters took at least 45 minutes to arrive from checking in at reception. I think we may have fallen between lunch and dinner so perhaps there was a change of staff going on? Also the sharing platter was nice but a bit expensive for what we got I felt. However this won’t put us off another visit. Kind regards John.

Had a great lunch - food was tasty, fresh and perfectly portioned and the service was great - friendly, helpful and swift. Will certainly visit again. My only concern (which is why we booked a lunchtime visit) is that evening bookings are restricted to 90 minute slots - not conducive to a relaxing meal which may (or may not) need more than the allotted time.

We had a lovely evening with you, it was a treat for my husbands birthday. You giving him a free pudding on a plate decorated with happy birthday was a really nice and much appreciated touch. Thank you

The food was just ok nothing special, and to be honest we did not have a desert, but went across the road to carluccios had desert and coffee there. The restaurant was clean staff nice, but not worth the money there is better places and better price
