Thai cui­sine

In some de­li­cious siz­zling dishes packed full of flavour

Star Courier (Surrey & Hants) - - DINING OUT -

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.

The price of Laura’s three­course meal for two with a drink cost around £ 50. To book a ta­ble call Gig­gling Squid, Guild­ford on 01483 440496. cer­our of
