Hove Giggling Squid site re-opens after £150k storm damage

The Hove branch of Thai-style casual dining restaurant Giggling Squid has re-opened after it suffered £150,000-worth of storm damage.

The 80-cover, two-floor site first opened in 2009, but was damaged in July after a summer storm led to thousands of gallons of rainwater pouring in through the roof of the floor-storey building.

First opened in Hove, the group now runs to 10 sites, including Crawley, Tunbridge Wells, Henley-on-Thames, Reigate, Stratford-upon-Avon, Marlow, Horsham and Sevenoaks.

Founded by Thai-raised Pranee Laurillard, and her husband Andy, the group serves "rustic"-style Thai food inspired by street trends and classic seafood dishes.

Key dishes include prawn satay, spring rolls, salt and pepper squid, tom yum soup, prawn ma kham, sea bass fillet, and lamb shank mossaman curry.
