About
Our Giggling Squid in Norwich is probably our grandest and biggest to date. We thought “we’ve made it – the cathedral is our neighbour!” If you know Tombland, it’s the lovely, large Grade II listed building right in the centre with the stained glass windows. Of course we loved it straight away (who wouldn’t?) but it was a challenge to make it feel cosy. I baffled the builders by asking them to help me re-create a pergola. Something to surprise guests with, and also to create a sub-space within a big space. They thought I’d really gone mad when I started weaving flowers through it! Feedback from our guests has been lovely, and the builders are eating their words.

Friendly service from the moment we walked through the door and delicious food. Ticked all the boxes for us. Salt and pepper squid was the best I’ve had and the Thai chicken red curry was delicious. Would definitely recommend.

The food looked like small portions but was very filling due to the ingredients used in Thai food. I had the salmon curry which was nice but the salmon was not as fresh as I'd like. I loved the sticky rice, it was so good...More

Absolutely amazing food!! This was my first visit and I was not disappointed. I had the Massaman vegan curry which was unbelievably good, whilst hubby had the Thai Geeen curry which he raved about. Will definitely be back!

Our sincere apologies you did not enjoy your recent experience with us. The fishcakes are made from silver fish and red curry paste, very different to traditional British fishcakes. I can assure you our food is prepared on site by a brigade of Thai Chefs....More
