Giggling Squid to open in Cheltenham

Thai restaurant group, Giggling Squid, is set to open its first Gloucestershire outpost when it pitches up in Cheltenham next year.

Diners can expect to enjoy authentic Asian cuisine when Thai restaurant group, Giggling Squid, opens its doors in Cheltenham next year, marking the first Gloucestershire outpost for the chain.

Giggling Squid, which was founded by Thai chef Pranee Laurillard and her husband Andy with their first restaurant in Brighton in 2002, has expanded over the last 15 years and now has 19 branches across the country.

The menu offers a mouth-watering selection of traditional Asian cuisine prepared by Thai chefs, with dishes including chicken satay and salt and pepper squid, alongside favourites such as pad Thai and Thai green curry.

Gluten-free and vegetarian diets are well catered for, while its dedicated children’s menu offers younger palates a mild introduction to Asian dishes.

Co-founder Andy said: ‘We’ve had our eye on Cheltenham for a while now, we’ve just been waiting for the right spot to come up. We’re confident that we’ve found it in the Montpellier district, from what we’ve experienced, it’s a great area for eating out and we think our unique offer can really contribute to the buzzing food scene’.
