It seems that Giggling Squid are on an unstoppable roll opening their tenth restaurant in the delightful town of Sevenoaks in Kent. I attended the launch night with M and A, our youngest son. The location is in an old ecclesiastical building, which has been fitted out in the house style of luxury finish with calming interiors that the others in the group all possess. Beach combed driftwood and soothing colours pervade. The lighting is soft and subtle proving a soothing environment to enjoy their consistently good food.

Corn Cakes

We had a selection of starters at the table including pork dumplings, corn cakes, salt and pepper squid and chicken satay. They were all good and the pork dumplings were particularly tasty with a spicy dip.

Chicken Satay

The mains found us erring towards familiar ground. I loved their green chicken curry with its thick sauce that wraps all it encounters lusciously. The chicken and fresh vegetables made it filling as well as tasty. A massaman curry also hit the spot with a rich dark red sauce and sticky rice.

The new building has a second floor that has an open feel about it because the ceiling is so high. The drama continues with glimpses of the kitchen in action through a large serving counter. The authenticity of Giggling Squid is always on show as they only have Thai staff cooking and serving their food.

If you find yourself in Sevenoaks I’d pop into what is bound to become a local favourite. The consistency and friendly atmosphere are always there so you can guarantee the experience is one that will satisfy.
