“Good Quality Food and a Happy Occasion”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We were pleased with our advance booking as the restaurant gets busy and some were turned away for dinner on Saturday night. Helpful service resulted in everyone getting good food choices including vegetarian and gluten free requirements. The 'tipsy tipsy beef', squid and scallops, and sea bass choices were very tasty and enjoyed by all. The wine list is limited and compromises had to be made to complement the dishes. The prices were somewhat expensive but overall the experience was a happy one.

“Best Thai meal”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Really polite and attentive staff, shown quickly to a table and given ample time to decide what to have. My Husband had duck in a red thai sauce which he said was the best duck he'd had!
I had a green Thai curry which was very nice but wish i'd asked for it to be made a little hotter.
The prices are a bit expensive but then i find most Thai Resturants are

“Really Nice Thai Food at a good price”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Popped into the Giggling Squid for a late lunch last week. The menu offers Asian Tapas and regular main courses. We decided to have the set plates, which arrived swiftly. The food was out of this world. Their green curry was rich and tasty and just perfectly spicy. However, my husband's honey duck was a triumph and worth returning for alone!!!

Nice service, welcomed with a smile, lovely décor, not expensive - what more can you ask for?

“Lovely decor and staff but average food.”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

We went on Friday evening. Staff were friendly. We ordered vegetarian platter and duck spring rolls, all tasty but a little greasy, the tofu was rock hard!! I mentioned it and was given a free dessert and apology. Mains were green Thai curry and sea bass which were delicious, the red Thai chicken curry was tasty but the meat was tough. So just ate the sauce. In the future I would like to try the tapas!!

“average food and relatively high prices”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

It was a risk -the restaurant was entirely empty at 1pm, but it had looked fine on trip advisor.

Excellent and friendly service.Very average, warm food.A four bowl tapas (one bowl of which was rice and the other very fatty duck, a chicken broth and then thinly filled spring rolls.) for nearly £10.Service was then added.
Beautiful decor and more customers came at last.

There are better places to eat in Stratford and I would not return.
