Christmas Party Bookings
Open Monday 19th September for booking 21st Nov – 31st Dec
It’s never too early to start considering the best restaurants for your Christmas party if you’ve been tasked with organising the team festive outing or if you’re the person who always rallies friends and family for gatherings and seasonal fun! The trick is to find somewhere conveniently local but offering a unique experience (no tired turkey or soggy sprouts, thank you) – and that’s where we come in!
Our expert Thai chefs have been busy devising this year’s festive menu and we’re extra proud of this one – as always, our aim is to create a magical fusion of traditional festive ingredients and tantalising Thai spices and flavours to deliver a truly unique seasonal menu.
With a mouthwatering selection of starters, mains and desserts, our three course menu has something to suit everyone’s tastebuds including moreish vegan options such as our hearty Festive Vegetabowl and showstopping dishes such our Chicken Parcels (cooked in banana leaves for extra succulence – unwrap like little Christmas pressies!) and our flavour-rich Prawn & Butternut Squash Tom Ka.
Our three course menu is available for dine-in at all our Giggling Squid restaurants and is £34.95 per person or £39.95 including a glass of welcome prosecco to add a little sparkle to the celebrations. You and your colleagues, friends or family can enjoy our festive menu anytime from 21st November to 31st December. For inspiration, take a peek at our festive menu below.
