The other week me and Sam went to Giggling Squid in Guildford to try out their evening menu. We arrived at the restaurant and were seated quickly and offered drinks promptly. Sam ordered a Chang which is a popular beer in Thailand and I went for a Merlot red wine. We ordered some prawn crackers as we made our menu choices. You get a large portion and it comes with a sweet chilli sauce which was delicious although I ended up spilling it everywhere. I’m such a messy eater!
There’s such a lot of dishes to choose from but I opted for the Sleeping honey duck with orange salad. I asked for it without the skin as I find it a bit too fatty. The duck is served sizzling at your table and comes with a special honey glaze sauce. Served on a bed of cabbage with cashew nuts and crispy fired shallots. It also comes with an orange salad side dish which includes lettuce, tomatoes and red onion. I loved this dish the duck went so well with the honey glaze. The duck was cooked perfectly and complimented the orange salad. I’ll definitely be back to have this dish again!
Sam went for the Paneang curry and sticky rice this is a red curry thickened with coconut milk. This was also delicious and came with plenty of sauce.
Giggling squid have recently launched a child friendly menu called ‘Little Tapas for Little People’ For just £5.95 kids get to choose two dishes from a range of Giggling Squid favourites. Including mild curries, noodle and rish dishes. Unlimited plain or sticky rice is available upon request. For an additional £2 kids can enjoy a roti served with a dash of condensed milk and a sprinkling of sugar or two scoops of ice cream.
The food was delicious, the waiters were friendly and service was quick. Giggling squid is a must for any Thai food fans.
I went to the Guildford branch, they also have other branches across the UK to find your nearest click here.
