About the employer

Giggling Squid was started way back in 2002. 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 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.
