Giggling Squid

We were so excited when the Giggling Squid came to Brighton & Hove, bringing with it it’s fresh and exciting dishes and elegant, contemporary restaurant décor. It really is Thai food sensation- unique dishes with amazing colours, exquisite and authentic textures and tastes.

Seafood here is amazing and knowing everything is cooked from scratch by Thai chefs using locally sourced ingredients just makes it taste even better! Try the Giggling Squid (£7.95), Phuket Pearl scallops (£8.50) or classic Tom Yum Soup with prawn. You can also get your favourite dishes, such as Thai Green Curry (from £6.50) and delicious stir-fry (from £5.70). There are lots of vegetarian options available.

Sukhothai Palace

Sukhothai is a fantastic Thai restaurant located in the heart of Brighton just off the seafront. I’ve always loved the restaurant for it’s very friendly and efficient service and the authentic and somewhat peaceful Thai ambience it radiates. There are water features, colourful orchids and traditional Thai art displayed throughout the restaurant. In summer, guests can dine in the sheltered garden terrace, complete with lanterns and tea lights.

The food is excellent- powerful flavours and vibrant colours. I would recommend the steamed mussels with lemongrass and holy basil (£4.95) or Mixed platter (£10.95 for two people) to start, and the grilled whole fish (£9.95) or Goong Sam Rod butterfly king prawn with spicy chilli sauce (£7.95) for main. Of course, the curry dishes are delicious too, with Green to Red and Jungle curry on offer (from £6.95). There’s so much delicious fare to choose from on the menu, you really are spoilt for choice.

It gets busy here, as the prices are very reasonable, so best to book a table to avoid disappointment. Sukhothai Palace also offers a fantastic 2-course lunch menu for just £4.95. khawp khun kaa Sukhothai!

Sabai Thai Gastrobar is conveniently located in the centre of Brighton next to the historical Royal Pavilion Gardens and close to Brighton’s theatres, including Theatre Royal, which makes it the perfect place to dine before watching a performance, or if you want to stay close to town.

The atmosphere is certainly relaxed (Sabai means relaxed in Thai), with its stylish surroundings, Thai furniture and art. The menu is extensive offering all the Thai favourites and slightly more authentic dishes, such as Si Krong Moo Nam Pueng (honey spare ribs, £8.95), spicy Larb salad (£6.95) and Tord Nun pla (Thai fish cakes, £5.95).
