Started with the lovely squid starter, and the tempura vegetables. Then on to crispy sea bass and fishing village curry. Both very enjoyable, and for once we hadn't ordered too much. Coffee for desert. Attentive staff. Very nice e evening. Only minus: £4.50 for a green tea 'cocktail', non alcoholic, is a bit steep...

Good food with a varied menu which satisfied our party of 4, we could not find a fault with this restaurant which enabled us all to taste various dishes. The service was very good & I can understand why the establishment was so busy. We will definitely return when visiting this area.

Lunch menu is very good value for money, tasty and plate full. It includes 2 pieces of starter, salad or stir fried vegetables and curry with rice. Very good.

We went here for a lunchtime meal and found that the lunch tapas sets gave us such a lot of options. All of the four-sets had a great deal of variety, and when we had finally chosen we weren't disappointing - great flavour, impressive presentation and generous portions. It's not a cheap place to eat but not too expensive for... More

A great place for lunch or dinner, but love the selection of 4 dishes they serve at lunchtime. One Giggling is my favourite! Friendly staff, great service and above all very tasty food. Can thoroughly recommend.

Had the set menu which consists of a variety of dishes including rice. Good service with a range of interesting teas on offer. lunch bill for 2 came to £30 inc drinks and service but you can go for a much cheaper one dish option.

This is definitely a step up from the usual oriental fare as far as setting and atmosphere and you certainly pay for the pleasure. Staff could be more welcoming and although we enjoyed the food, a couple of the dishes had random spices, even sweet, which was odd.

So..... You know how some times you really look forward to something and may even build your expectations too high. Well this was our experience. We booked in the week as we wanted to combine The Giggling Squid with a trip to Tonbridge wells. Table set for Saturday lunch. Great I can not think of a more delightful proposition Asian... More

After finally making a long awaited visit to The giggling squid in Tunbridge wells we unfortunately left feeling very disappointed. The lay out, decor and atmosphere were perfect but the service lacked in friendliness and wasn't very helpful when asking for more information on the menu. But is was the food that really let it down for me. I had... More
