Our Story

My husband and I sat in the basement of a tiny, tiny fisherman’s cottage (now our Brighton restaurant!) way back in 2002 and pulled together our first Thai Tapas menu. Our idea was to cook simple, rustic, fresh Thai food. We wanted a menu that people could eat like they do at home. In Thailand, mealtimes are all about lots of dishes that everyone shares.

We had no money, no idea what we were doing, a leaky roof, dodgy wiring and a pile of washing up to the ceiling but luckily the menu was a massive hit. Things have moved on a bit now but you can still eat our super popular Thai Tapas Sets for lunch.

In the evenings we serve lots of original dishes, alongside more unusual Thai flavour combinations.
We hope you enjoy Giggling Squid, and feel at home in our funny, quirky little restaurants - well some of them are not so little now, but our approach is still the same. We love to hear from our guests so please feel free to share your feedback online or drop in to see us at your local restaurant.
