can be very noisy, due to low ceilings could do with some noise reduction solutions

First visit to Esher Giggling Squid- loved the decor- and having been to Reigate was pleased to find more room inside. Salt & Pepper Squid as ever was good. Although I found the prawn pad Thai a little unflavoured. Busy for a Monday evening, which shows you must be doing something right. Lastly glasses of water on arrival would have been better with ice. The only reason I have made constructive comments is to make the Giggling Squid a place I would like to recommend to others.

Thought starters were very small portions. Main courses full of flavours, really tasty, plenty of choice. Good dining experience, very pleasant surroundings. Thank you.

Food was incredible, although quite expensive so I am pleased it was so good! The place was v busy and that made it v noisy - not a negative but worth knowing as it wasn’t a peaceful dining experience. We will be returning.

Half of the food we ordered was fairly bland and tasteless compared to previous visits there. I mentioned this to one of the staff, possibly the manager and I wasn’t even offered a replacement dish or a discount on the bill. As it is, the food is overpriced for what it is. I won’t be going back and certainly won’t be recommending anyone to go there.

Everything was great, food was lovely and the service was very attentive. However, I did think it was a little expensive for what we had. But I would still definitely recommend to visit.

Delicious food, good choice. Enjoyable non alcoholic drinks available. Service cool and efficient rather than warm and friendly. Good location.

You really looked after us. We needed a quick supper before a concert a Sandown Racecourse and whilst you weren't crazy busy - you jumped to deliver. The Pad Thai was delicious. Thank you Katie x

Five ladies enjoyed a fantastic Tapas lunch at The Giggling Squid yesterday. It was great value for money and the range of Tapas was varied and delicious. Service was very good too.

Food was delicious - bit more pricey than other Thai restaurants I have been to- but wonderful flavours. We ordered a sharing platter and three dishes for our main course. However our main course dishes arrived before our starter and we then had a long wait before our "second" main course arrived. The restaurant was very busy and we didn't really feel there was any real personal service- more how quickly we could eat and go. The restaurant was also incredibly noisy - maybe an acoustics problem?? Maybe we will try Guildford or Kingston next time.

Unfortunately the service was awful. It took forever to order food and drinks, however once our orders had finally been taken things did come out quickly. Also at the point of paying our bill we were only then informed that they could not accept card payments which was very inconvenient. I appreciate that there was a local event but surely staff should have been aware and therefore prepared to cater for diners? A bit of a shame to be honest.
