About Us

Giggling Squid was born in 2009 from a determination to do things differently. To be one of a kind. We now have a few more restaurants under our belt (32 to date!) and have been named in the Times 100 fastest growing companies for good reason but the important stuff hasn’t changed. We’re still as hungry as ever to give our guests a truly unique experience based around staggeringly good food cooked by master Thai chefs, from scratch.

We are looking for genuine, caring and determined individuals to be part of our success and growth. Family culture is just as important today as it was when we first began. The continued training and developing of our teams will always be at the heart of what we do.

" My husband and I sat in the basement of a tiny, tiny fisherman's cottage (now our Brighton restaurant!) way back In 2002 and pulled together our first Thai Tapas menu. Our Idea was to cook simple, rustic, fresh Thai food. We wanted a menu that people could eat like they do at home. In Thailand, mealtimes are all about lots of dishes that everyone shares.

We had no money, no Idea what we were doing, a leaky roof, dodgy wiring and a pile of washing up to the ceiling but luckily the menu was a massive hit. Things have moved on a bit now, but you can still eat our super popular Thai Tapas Sets for lunch.

In the evenings we serve lots of original dishes, alongside more unusual Thai flavour combinations. We hope you enjoy Giggling Squid, and feel at home In our funny, quirky little restaurants - well some of them are not so little now, but our approach Is still the same. "
