Nice food but disappointing that soup was not served at dinner as that is a Thai staple and my husbands favourite part of the meal

We really enjoyed our meal at the Giggling squid. The service was a tiny bit slow to start off with, as we sat down ordered drinks, then the waiter returned after a quite a while to take our starters orders before we actually got our drinks. However the waiting time was ok afterwards. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the starters. I would have loved to have seen a little bit more from the pad Thai, as some other Thai restaurants I have been to have a bit more to theirs and more vegetables, and more prawns, I think we only had four small ones which was a little disappointing. However it still tasted lovely, I also had the duck which was cooked perfectly. I am definitely going to come back here as the starters were really great!

Anniversary meal and everything was spot on. I tried something different this visit the sea bass pad cha which was absolutely amazing flavours, presentation and perfectly cooked. My husband had the sticky chicken stir fry which he loved too. Atmosphere was great. Service was very good and friendly staff always happy to help. Great experience as always.

In a word....." FANTASTIC" We had a table of 5 for 19.15 on a Thursday on a super hot day in this New thing, called 'Summer' we're having. The windows were open and outside was packed but the small area we were seated was pleasantly spaced and full but not oppressive even considering the heat. All of us had been looking forward to this meal and we weren't disappointed! We were served Crackers and water whilst we waited, and my first very minor complaint would be that we were asked if we wanted” sparkling” or “mineral” water, Mum said Can we ‘ just have Still water’ please, which obviously came as bottled mineral water(Charged at£3.50), when we would have preferred to have just had a jug of tap water when the weather is so HOT, but a minor issue and of our own making for not being clear to be fair. When requesting more water it did come in a Jug!  We ordered 3 starters, Spring Rolls, Thai Chicken Wings and a GS favourite, Salt and Pepper Squid, all great and each person was very pleased with their Choice, all portion sizes were big enough without being overpowering to the detriment of the meal, in a word, 'PERFECT', and there are many more choices that I want to come back to try too !! For Mains we ordered two Seabass Pad Cha, Chicken Massaman Curry, Lamb Shank Massaman Curry and finally, Prawns and Mixed Seafood Pad Cha. We had a slight mix-up issue with the double seabass, in that they brought the Steamed seabass?? Not quite sure how that happened as we actually said Pad Cha? But in any case this issue was rectified in the shortest possible time with much apologies and manager involvement (their choice of attention to sort out the problem) we are assured that it would only take a few minutes and they were right.. amazing speed to rectify the issue, and the meals were all fantastic! We only had one sweet, The ‘MeKong’? Ice cream which was pleasant enough too, so overall, with some Aspels Cider, and a fantastically Refreshing Citrusy, Zesty white wine to wash it all down with we had a really fantastic meal, with nothing but praise for the food, the serving staff and Chefs . the food really was amazing and We couldn’t rate this visit more highly, it was a full 5 star meal all around and we cannot wait to book again as there are soo many choices on the menu that we can’t wait to dive into. Finally massive thankyou for making our Birthday meal a fantastic night out

Always have great thai food at The Giggling Squid with great service. It is a bit pricey compared to other thai restaurants in town and surrounding areas but it is worth it!

Me and my partner absolutely LOVE the Norwich Giggling Squid! It’s become our go to place! We visit at least twice a month!! The food is delicious!! Our favourite being the Thai Duck red curry and the Beef and oyster sauce not getting the crackers and sweet chilli dip! Your staff is also so lovely and very welcoming!! - Ruby (I hope I have right) seems to always be there when we visit - she is a lovely lady, always smiling and so welcoming!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a lovely lunch/dinner!
