Not the worst Thai/oriental restaurant I have eaten in, but the atmosphere for me was just wrong. The waiters spent no time actually advising on dishes and so on. When called over to ask questions of, we got the answer and then the waiter rushed off again without waiting to see if there were any other questions. All very bustle,... More

A large group of us tend to go here for lunch every other month, and I cannot recommend it enough. If you're looking for amazing mouth-watering good and a pic-and-mix of flavours, try their tapas menus. Reasonably priced and will make sure you can't eat for the rest of the day from being so full! Great for veggies, gluten-free, fishy... More

Went there for a friend's birthday, table booked a week before. Staff made us feel really uncomfortable and they were rushing us to leave. Food was ok but staff was so rude, at one point they were trying to take a plate while we were still eating. Not good!!

The giggling Squid is one of our favorite restaurants in Tunbridge Wells, We lived in the area for years and it was always our no 1 choice. The place is very cute and intimate, the dining room is simply decorated and if you go on a Friday or Saturday night the place is buzzing, making the atmosphere perfect for diners.... More

I have been lucky enough to have visited Thailand twice and as thus would highly recommend this restaurant. Food was authentic, staff pleasant and friendly, and good cocktails. Will definitely come again.

Booked Giggling Squid for mum's birthday. First time for her to experience Thai food and she loved it. The Pad Thai was so good and the Sharing Platter, Green Chicken Curry and Coconut Rice was delicious. Not cheap but food freshly prepared so worth it. Loved the restaurant decor. Staff friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back with my husband.... More
