We have been here a few times and have noticed found it to be gradually getting worse, both in terms of the warmness of the welcome and the quality of the food. We are Londoners and are lucky to have access to amazing Thai restaurants....More

Boom!! We opened Giggling Squid with a big bang in Billericay. It was such a great surprise to have so many happy customers wanting a Thai restaurant like ours right from day one and it’s still going strong. We must have done something right. The locals are so friendly; we can’t help but feel that we should have brought Giggling Squid to Billericay a long time ago. This restaurant is one of the ones we’re particularly proud of with beautiful old big lamps at the entrance hanging down from the high ceiling. You have to see it for yourself!
