In some delicious sizzling dishes packed full of flavour
are sizzling on hot plates, so you have to order your rice separately. From experience, we decided to share a coconut rice (£ 3.45) as the portions are large.
My colourful stir- fry looked exquisite and it was just as pleasing when I tucked in.
Large chicken pieces were mixed with al dente beansprout, carrot, broccoli, sweetheart cabbage, spring onion, mushroom and a thick and rich oyster sauce.
The mild dish had a candied yet salty taste and the flavours went perfectly with the creamy, sweet and fresh coconut rice.
By the way, the sticky coconut rice really is a must. It’s indulgent yet light and utterly delicious.
By this point, our traditional Thai feast was taking a toll on our stomachs, but we couldn’t resist a dessert.
As with many Thai restaurants, the pudding choice is on the limited side, but it had exactly what we needed – something refreshing to cleanse out pallets.
We both ordered mint and lychee sorbet.
It tasted as exotic as it sounds. Made by a tiny shop in Brighton to the restaurant’s request, freshly picked mint was the dominant flavour yet you could taste the subtle sweetness of the fruit.
In and out of the restaurant within an hour and a half, at no point did we feel hurried.
Our tastebuds were tainly tantalised during second experience Giggling Squid.
We had an enjoyable and welcoming visit, with a delightful spread of luscious Thai cuisine.
