Restaurant nominated

THE Giggling Squid Thai restaurant chain, which has a branch in Hart Street, Henley, has been shortlisted in the best family restaurant category in this year’s R200 Awards hosted by Restaurant magazine.

THE Giggling Squid Thai restaurant chain, which has a branch in Hart Street, Henley, has been shortlisted in the best family restaurant category in this year’s R200 Awards hosted by Restaurant magazine.

Andy Laurillard, who owns the chain with his wife Pranee, said: “It’s gratifying to be shortlisted in this category as we have no children’s menu, ball pit or colour-in place mats. It shows the market is moving away from food and an eating environment dumbed down to the lowest common denominator.”

His wife, who was raised in Thailand, said: “There, the whole family eats together and enjoys the same things.Although our chefs will tame down the more fiery dishes for children on request, more kids these days really enjoy spicy food.”

The awards will be presented at a gala dinner in London on November 6.
