The home of staggeringly good Thai food
Describe your menu Giggling Squid customers will be treated to a lunchtime Thai tapas menu and a separate dinner menu both featuring a varied selection of seafood, meat, curry, noodles and stir fry options.
Where are the ingredients sourced from?
We import fresh Thai herbs and vegetables directly from Thailand, however we do make use of the abundance of British produce from meat, fish, fruit and vegetables when in season too.
What’s the restaurant ethos?
The restaurant ethos has always been serving authentic, rustic and fresh Thai cooking with the emphasis on street food and coastal specialities.
What can customers expect of a visit?
A relaxed yet stylish and spacious setting with a subtle Thai décor. From lunchtime tapas to delicious curries, salads, rice and noodles, Bishop’s Stortford customers are invited to experience its rich tapestry of freshly prepared dishes prepared on-site by team of talented Thai chefs. A dedicated ‘little tapas for little people’ menu is also available and guaranteed to ensure smiles all round.
How are you different?
Pranee Laurillard, owner of Giggling Squid was keen to create the ultimate Thai experience. Alongside the traditional sharing food culture of Thailand, it was also important too for her to focus on beautiful décor, somewhere where customers will enjoy the surroundings as well as the food. This combination has been the epitome of what makes Giggling Squid different to others.
Do you cater for large/special events?
Yes – few of our sites like Marlow and Harpenden have their own private dining room area that provides the ultimate choice for a family gathering or party celebration.
