A large family run restaurant with a brilliant Thai supermarket next door... This place never disappoints. With Thai Terrace in Guildford town centre catering for much larger numbers, Rumwong is a bit more personal and has a greater feeling of quality.

Personally I'm not sure how this restaurant gets the rave reviews that it garners. Several visits encouraged by numerous people still leaves me perplexed. The service is universally appaling, I don't expect to pay high prices to feel that I'm somehow getting in the way of their evening. Also trying to ask for assistance on the menu is met with...

Rumwong is by far my favourite Thai restaurant and I have tried most of them in Surrey! The service is good and the food is delicious, fully recommend it over the other 2 Thai restaurants in Guildford. Price wise is probably higher then average but you do pay for quality, would say Thai crackers should be complimentary for diners waiting... More

As a family we are totally in love with Thai cuisine. During our recent visit to Guildford we felt like sampling some Thai fare. We visited Rumwong a bit apprehensive of the so called "authentic" Thai food which often ends up a pretty much watered-down and highly disappointing version of the original. It was therefore with some trepidition and apprehension... More

Excellent all round every time - this restaurant never fails to deliver on every count. The service is always fantastic and the food delicious. We eat here regularly and have never been disappointed, whether in a large group or a quiet meal for two.

This restaurant was so busy when we passed on a Tuesday that we knew it must be good. So we booked & went the next night. If we hadn't of booked we wouldn't have got in, this place is popular & it soon became apparent why. Great service, nice restaurant, delicious food. Hubby had duck curry & I had tempura... More

Having eaten here many times in the past but having been away for a number of years, I was pleased to book a table at the Rumwong on a recent trip to Guildford. The food and service are excellent.

An extremely popular place so booking really is essential. That said we turned up and only waited 20 minutes on a bank holiday evening. The menu is vast and a little overwhelming with so much choice but everything we had was interesting and felt a little different to the usual range of SE Asian food available in the area. They...

I started going to Rumwong back in 2004 when i was a student and decided to go again after many many years and had to show my husband the best thai restaurant in Surrey or maybe London to that matter. I have travelled to Thailand so i know whats good when it comes to authenticity. This ticks all the boxes.... More
