Food was very good & enjoyed a couple of the new dishes. The girls serving were ok but the wait for food to arrive was long. The bill for 2 was quite expensive, seems prices are increasing.

Very enjoyable lunch, visited a couple of times now and food and service is always very reliable. Excellent if you are gluten free.

Always enjoy the food here. Was not disappointed. Had a lot of first timers with me who also raved about the quality of the food.

We had an enjoyable evening and the traditional Thai flavours were delicious, however, my husband had the Beef Rib for the main dish which was listed in the menu as being substantial and it was smaller than the starter. He actually came home feeling hungry. At almost £30 per head for a starter and main dish, which included just one beer and one glass of Prosecco, I feel that this is over priced. When we mentioned to the waitress that we weren't happy with the Beef Rib she just shrugged and didn't comment. The King Prawn Pad Thai, which I had, was delicious and I also enjoyed the fresh papaya salad. It is a shame that the prices are so high and that we felt shortchanged by the Beef Rib, as it has really put us off going again.

Everything was superb, best pad-thai since Thailand, beef and duck cooked to the highest standard. Squid and mixed starter amazing, so so yummy. Even my fussy kids loved it, great children’s menu. Cocktails and Thai gin lovely too. Very competitive prices too. Nothing negative at all. Thanks 🙏

5 stars all round. I had the tapas style lunch. As always food very good. I love Squid and eat it a lot. Love it when cooked well. Hate it when cooked badly. Giggling Squid always seems to get it right. Crispy well seasoned tasty Squid. Staff lovely and great fun.

We had a voucher following a really bad meal here. But this time was like eating in a completely different restaurant. We had the most fantastic meal! Brilliant service and utterly amazing food. Thank you!

The salt and pepper squid on this occasion was extremely salty - far too much so, and the service was some clunky. Price increases over the last couple of years have also made Giggling Squid quite expensive.

Please bring back spicy fried rice for lunch!! It is my absolute favourite and I was not able to have it. I still love it but I miss that dish.

Food was superb but could’ve been a bit hotter - not spice hot just heat hot.

Three of us had dinner mid-week. Food was really good, but very slow arriving. It took an hour for our starters to arrive, the kitchen seem to prioritise take-away orders over those dining in. Front of house staff tried to make amends after our meal, but should have been much more proactive sooner. Enjoyed the food, but the whole experienced left a sour taste.
