Description: What a way to welcome a new Giggling Squid to Horsham! We opened on a busy Easter bank holiday weekend during a car show. I remember that there were old and new sports cars lined up all along East street where our Thai restaurant is. The whole place was buzzing with the noise from those powerful cars. And so many people! We worked flat out that first week!

Have now visited this restaurant on a number of occasions before reviewing and pleased to say food, drinks and service have been on top form every time.
If you’re into shellfish then you will be more than happy with the menu as the variety of dishes and sauces are packed with flavour. Overall: Great selection of dishes offering value for money and for a chain of restaurants it does feel very much like a one-off authentic Thai. Happy to recommend to all and will certainly be returning.

Being half Thai I’m always judgemental when it comes to Thai restaurants but I was pleasantly surprise on everything. The food was great, the staff were very polite! I will be going back to eat in Giggling Squid!

Having eaten here several times before we were not prepared for the experience we had last night (10/2/18).
The food was, as usual, was very nice but the service left a lot to be desired.
The restaurant didn't appear to be overly busy but it took 3 requests to get a glass of water which was slammed down on the table without a word said.
Once we'd finished eating our table wasn't cleared for ages and it took a further 20 minutes to get our bill then nobody seemed interested in taking our money!
Basically we were ignored!
On our way out one of the girls asked us if everything was ok and when we said it wasn't she smiled and walked away.

A real shame because up until last night everything had always been great!

We visited Giggling Squid in Brighton years ago and so decided to give it another go having had a good experience before. We rang to book and managed to get a spot, either 5pm or 9.45pm so took the earlier one; booking it seems is a must for this venue.
The service was excellent, I had the Paneang curry and it was absolutely delicious, really tasty and not too hot. Topped off with a cocktail Giggling Cosmo so all in all a lovely evening, would definitely return to this restaurant.

After reading some very impressive reviews we decided to pop in for lunch. We were warmly greeted and the standard of service was very good. We choose the “two choice menu”. I had the spring rolls, which were very average followed by chicken pad Thai. This was under seasoned and very bland. My husband had the fritters and vegetable and rice. Also quite tasteless.
The food resembled something you would be served in a fast food place.
Very disappointing.

Hello Kathy,

I'm sorry that you experienced this at our Horsham restaurant, this does not reflect our usual high standards and we would like to look into this further. Please can you email alex.k@gigglingsquid.com?

We pride ourselves on the freshness of our food and like to present to impress, this obviously didn't come across for you in this visit. Thank you for taking the time to write to us and we hope to hear from you in order for us to investigate this.
