I’ve been to other Giggling Squids before, and the restaurant in Clifton achieves the same high standards. The service was quick and friendly, and the food was delicious. I had the corn fritters to start and the Chicken Thai Red Curry for main. With drinks...More

As far as Thai food goes, I haven’t had anything better. It was a good atmosphere and the service was fantastic - they were incredibly efficient at refilling glasses, cutlery etc. The food was beautifully presented and offered a really good choice such as the...More

We visited here last month, I ordered the scallops which were over cooked and didn’t taste very nice at all and the corn fritters which were also overdone and chewy. Staff were ok but quite passive and not very accommodating. I would recommend ordering the...More

Good food and nice ambiance. Only the deserts let the experience down. When I complained about the frozen cheesecake served with ice-cream, the manager explained they are a chain and it's delivered this way to them. Not the best answer to a poor desert and...More

The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived, and there were only a few reserved tables, but the place was soon pretty full, considering that it. Was Boxing Day. Food was relish and my Thai friend was impressed. Will go again.
