New Thai restaurant set for St Martins Square

Giggling Squid has restaurants across the UK

Leicester’s St Martins Square is to get a new Thai restaurant following a property deal.

Giggling Squid is set to open in the Lanes area of the city following a deal brokered by SPACE Retail Property Consultants on behalf of landlord Shearer Property Group (SPG).

They restaurant will open in Q4 this year, occupying the former Grillstock/Pizza Express unit. Giggling Squid will join Mowgli which is due to open in St Martins Square on 12 August.

Martin Herbert of SPACE said: “Giggling Squid will bring to Leicester a fantastic, high quality, Thai dining experience and their choice of St. Martins, being complementary to the other dining offers within the Square, will add to the vibrant and ever-increasing offer available in The Lanes.

“The market is moving away from the mass-branded Casual dining offers found in so many shopping centres and the inclusion of Giggling Squid at St Martins is a testament to the work that both Shearer Property Group and Leicester City Council have put into continually improving this unique part of the city centre.”
