Love Thai food.. always wanted to go here. Mmm after a very very very large bill for basically a Chinese / takeaway, maybe shouldn’t have gone. Your stir fry is basically just a bowl of chicken, at £12 and you have to pay extra for...More

Visited a couple of times recently, atmosphere is good and the place seems consistently busy. Tried the lunch and evening menu now and would fully recommend either to anyone visiting the area

We have dined here on several previous occasions and have had mixed experiences. We decided to give it another go but wish we hadn’t bothered. The service was good and the starters were excellent. However, the main courses were extremely disappointing. Despite the promised two...More

What a way to welcome a new Giggling Squid to Horsham! We opened on a busy Easter bank holiday weekend during a car show. I remember that there were old and new sports cars lined up all along East street where our Thai restaurant is. The whole place was buzzing with the noise from those powerful cars. And so many people! We worked flat out that first week!
