Description: We were determined to find the right home for a Giggling Squid in Sevenoaks and looked at every restaurant building going! We were delighted when this one came on the market. My husband said yes right away and came home to tell me he’d just bought a restaurant! We have two stunning, gigantic, handmade lamp shades cleverly made by our talented builders. They rescued us from a sticky situation as we’d run out of the pendant lights we usually ship from Thailand! The upstairs part is the highlight of our beautiful Thai restaurant in Sevenoaks – look up and you’ll see pointed high ceilings left over from the old church it once was.

A few people recommended this place for a good Thai food and I thought it would only be fair if I try for myself. We went for a dinner on a Saturday night. The place looks nice inside, it’s clean and cosy. It definitely doesn’t have a tacky look of a typical Asian restaurant. The food was great - all presented really well, the flavours were there, portions just about right. I would say slightly pricey but worth it.
The only downside was a pretty sluggish service. I thought they would be a bit more welcoming, enthusiastic and quicker. Shame but maybe we were unlucky.

Very busy, arrived at peak time 20:30 Sat night with large queue of people. Staff, couldn’t have been more friendly despite competing demands. Felt very welcome and waited on by knowledgable staff that made time to engage in disucssion about the dishes and design features of the restaurant. Looking forward to trying the new menu, the waitress has enthused about.

Visited mid-week and had pre-booked table. Arrived, greeted by a lady who was less than welcoming and then had to wait for her to set the table. Other tables in restaurant guests had already left and tables were still waiting to be cleared.

Restaurant was chilly, toilets were baking!!

Service ok, albeit staff didn’t have much personality.

Food average, nice but have had better Thai elsewhere.

Had an ok meal, wouldn’t rush back to be honest. Lacked atmosphere, needs more welcoming staff and food needs to be amazing for me to go somewhere a second time.

Pad noodles congealed together, fish cakes bland. Rest ok but not amazing.

This has been a return visit for us it's about a 30 minute journey for us but we think it's worth it. The food is great and the service is excellent.
