Great Thai food cooked with passion, served with finesse and so delicious it is heavenly. Perfect place for that special meal out when you are looking to feel gastronomically pampered! Could not fault anything about the Giggling Squid, Reigate!

Cosy venue friendly staff. Set tapas lunch is good value. Salt and pepper squid is very good. Beef and ginger not as expected it’s cold beef which tasted of fish. Service was ok, slightly slow but it was busy.

We recently with friends who had recommended the restaurant to us. The food was nice and tasty. Would recommend they offered a wider range of beers. We were not blown away but it was OK.

Booked a table for 4 and had to sit near the door so there were people constantly coming in and out and standing behind us, which did not make for a relaxed meal. My daughter asked for help in ordering a main course that was...More

Great food, it’s a small restaurant with a nice calm atmosphere, don’t bother with the cocktails though, pretty underwhelming.

We parked in Morrisons as it was nearly 9pm , during the day you would have 2 hours here. Otherwise you could try the car park by the council building and walk through the tunnel and along.

We love how quirky this restaurant is. There are lots of different rooms – one even has a private bar (perfect for parties!) This charming Giggling Squid is not what you’d expect from a Thai restaurant at all, which is part of the reason why we love it so much. Spread across 4 floors, anyone who works here gets fit without trying – we should make it a company perk! It took us a long time to open in Reigate as our builders discovered a cave. It soon made us the talk of the town!
