Giggling Squid is all about food with personality, cooked with expertise and shared with generosity. At our heart is the spirit of Thai mealtimes - plentiful dishes, bold flavours and exotic ingredients - to be shared and enjoyed together.  

We started in 2009 from a determination to do things differently. To be one of a kind and bring some Thai generosity to the UK. Back then, what was missing from the food scene was that true Thai feel – energetic, informal, adventurous, and truly welcoming. We believe food is to be celebrated and you don’t have to dress up to enjoy it. Relaxed, no standing on ceremony – it’s about having a good time, over something tasty.

Brighton and Hove play a special role in our story as it was in a tiny fisherman’s cottage in Brighton that founders Pranee and Andy opened the first Giggling Squid. Hove was home to our second restaurant and from there our Giggling Squid family started to grow.

We now have a few more restaurants under our belt (34 to date) but the important stuff hasn’t changed since we started. We’re still as hungry as ever to give our guests a truly memorable experience, leaving with full stomachs and happy hearts
