What a great meal. No complaints at all.We had the green curry and it was very tasty.The service was good too. It's a small intimate restaurant and I will come back.

Enjoyed a very nice tapas style Thai lunch here. Four dishes on a plate. Very good duck rolls, tasty prawn toasts, delicate jasmine rice and a good chicken massaman curry. My husband had the same, but with lamb curry. Busy, but service was good, staff friendly, and we would go again to try other dishes.

For a Thai they had poor vegan options and far to much sugar in the food. Its a nice venue however this chain location did not impress and the food and service was very average. There are plenty of better independent Thai restaurants in Tunbridge Wells. I would say this is more English Thai, not very spicy or authentic.

Disappointing meal today at the Giggling Squid. My lamb massaman curry was 90% fat, hardly any meat, & service was poor- we had to go and find the waitress for a second drink! Not what I'd expect from this restaurant, particularly as we were one of 2 tables to serve.

On a recent visit I had the seafood street food which was nicely presented and good quality, I followed this with a new dish (can't remember its name) which was squid stuffed with chicken. It sounded odd which is why I chose it but it was bland and boring neither the squid or the chicken had any flavour and the... More

Love their 'tapas' plates for lunch. Had the Wealthy Squid and once again it did not disappoint. Service is quick and efficient even if not friendly. Good value too.

Just like to thank the Giggling Squid for a great meal on Sunday. I was with a party of nine friends and we decided at 7:00pm to get a meal. I phoned the GS and even though they were busy they found us a decent table, provided an excellent meal; (one of us needed gluten free), and everything was smoothly... More

We tried the Giggling Squid at lunchtime and the menu is very good value for money with lots of choice for vegetarians. We were a bit worried about the sauces as a lot of Thai/Chinese food outlets have sauces that are fish based, but they still claim they are vegetarian. We asked the waitress if the sauce with the Thai... More

So, Saturday night myself and three friends visited for the first time, based on recommendations from friends. The restaurant was busy but we were sat in a table tucked out of the way which was perfect. I have to say the food was really good. Very fresh, with beautiful fragrant flavours. The service was pretty good until it got towards... More
