Centrally located on Market Square in Salisbury, Giggling Squid serves delicious, authentic Thai cuisine in a stylish yet relaxed environment. Dishes are freshly prepared from scratch in the kitchen by master Thai chefs and showcase the diverse flavours of the country. Open for lunch and dinner, the 120 cover site appeals to couples and groups of friends, office workers and families looking for great tasting food at sensible prices.
The Giggling Squid menu offers a selection of seafood, meat, curry and stir fry options. Salisbury serves the renowned Giggling Squid Thai tapas lunch menu featuring an array of small plates such as Duck in baby leaf canapes; Seared scallop with spicy lime dressing; Thai pork dumplings; and Papaya salad. There is also a range of Tapas ‘tasting sets’ on offer priced between £9.75 and £11.95, each with a curated selection of dishes which perfectly complement each other. Choose from the Hungry Squid, the Wealthy Squid or Two Giggling Squids! The two dish meal combi, priced at £6.95, offers fantastic value for lunch time guests.
The evening menu includes staples such as Thai green curry; Massaman chicken curry or for the more adventurous, the spicy Tropical jungle curry, combined with showstoppers like ‘Stand up seabass’ (a crispy golden fillet standing on its tail with peanut, fresh chilli, shallots, lime, lemongrass and ginger) or the ‘Crying Beef’, a North East Thailand special of grilled sirloin accompanied with spicy dipping sauce. And of course there are some tasty squid dishes on offer, including the signature Salt and pepper squid. Those looking for something lighter can opt for steamed dishes and salads such as the Ginger soy scallop (served in shells and steamed with soy sauce, sliced ginger, spring onion and shiitake mushroom) and Thai beef salad.
For the perfect sweet hit, guests can tuck into desserts like Caramelised mango cake or Chocolate Feuillantine, as well as a range of ice cream and sorbets including black sesame, rose yogurt and mint and lychee made to request by the owners’ favourite little ice cream shop.
Families can also take advantage of the Little Tapas menu, designed for children and featuring smaller versions of popular dishes including Chicken satay and Pad Thai.
Much loved by locals, fans compliment the restaurant for having the “feel” of a one-off independent, rather than a mass “produced” chain.
