I love everything about this place - gorgeous decor, lots of choice on the menu and everything I've had is fantastic. The honey sleeping duck, red Thai curry, shared starter plate, and green Thai tofu curry are all worthy of 5 stars.

We have a number of Thai restaurants in Tunbridge Wells. We could have chosen any but we were delighted to have chosen the Giggling Squid. The service was excellent. I enjoyed Tom Yum soup and Massaman Curry. Plenty of wonderful spices and textures. We loved the Chang beer and wines. Great value too!

A little sterile when we arrived, but the atmosphere warmed with more people coming in. Felt we were too early in the evening but it was worth it.

Great food and service. We also love the crying beef and the green Thai curry. Do ask if you prefer your dish hotter or milder, as they are happy to adapt.
