Dreadful background music; just a regular thumping sound. Exactly the opposite of the ambience you have designed throughout the restaurant, and very distracting.

Too much rice and very little of what we ordered. I had 3 prawns in my main course. Taste was good. Still confused about booking for dinner, nothing available according to booking site, however as we were leaving at 6.50 no other diners.

Loved the building. Food was good for a quick lunch- not sure about the tofu pieces in the pad thai but I guess that's just personal choice/

We had a lovely evening, but it was quite expensive and so loud! The acoustics aren’t very good in that space unfortunately. The waitress couldn’t even hear to take our order and my husband received a latte at the end of his meal instead of an Americano because she was relying on lip reading! Would still go back though, maybe try lunch!

Lovely healthy food, week presented and great flavours. Pleasant decor. A tiny bit noisy but that's a small price for price of the buzz and atmosphere of this successful restaurant.

We had a very nice meal here, all of us trying a different dish each course. Very good food. Staff a little inexperienced, but sweet and obviously on a learning curve - glad the Giggling Squid are taking it slowly. We will be back!

We really couldn’t fault it. Superb food and service, we loved this restaurant so much when we stumbled across one in Bury St Edmunds, and then delighted to find one local to us. We will be visiting regularly

We love visiting the Giggling Squid as the food is always delicious. The new Harpenden restaurant is no exception and the decor and service were excellent. We are already planning a 70th birthday for my Father in Law next year and the private room will be perfect. I look forward to my next visit which I’m sure will be very soon.
