Giggling Squid, Weybridge
Muddy says: Fast, fragrant and fresh – authentic Thai food in stylish surroundings with an emphasis on sharing plates.
Starting from a tiny fisherman’s cottage in Brighton, the Giggling Squid is now a chain of quirky Thai restaurants but their aim is exactly the same – to cook rustic authentic and fresh Thai food.
There’s a real emphasis on sharing with a brilliant selection of Thai tapas dishes, as well as traditional Thai favourites like red and green curry, salt and pepper squid and spring rolls. They also create unusual flavour combinations (watermelon salad, anyone?) and do non-gluten, vegan and veggie options.
And all available to take away too. Prices are really reasonable with many mains under a tenner or around the £15 mark. These restaurants are impressive – the food is genuinely really good (in my opinion better than I’ve had in a posh expensive Thai restaurant) and the styling is a pleasant shabby chic.
