First impressions were very good. Lovely layout. Parking was a pig but that wasn't the fault of the restaurant but you do need to allow enough time. Service was excellent and quality of food was very good. Warning - "hot/ 2 chillies" does mean "hot"...More

The Basil Beef Gra Pau was very flavorful. However, the beef was quite tough. I would recommend skipping the beef and going for the shrimp or chicken. It has a very modern decor and a nice atmosphere. I would come again if in the area.

I sat on a sofabench along the left hand wall when I visited and that was fully cushioned. Therefore I would suggest asking for these seats when booking - the food and ambience is well worth it in my opinion

Description
What a lovely town! The church and the ruin are stunning. At the back of the church, only yards away from the main street, there’s a hidden oasis of calm. It’s so tranquil! I love stopping into it when I’m visiting Bury St Edmunds. We feel so lucky to have had such a warm, friendly reception to our Thai restaurant here. This Giggling Squid is definitely one of our most beautiful. The glass room at the back is so popular. It’s light and relaxing, just like sitting in a conservatory. I’m open to suggestions of where I can get big plant pots as the ones I ordered never turned up!
