We went as a group from work and found that we had been booked into the area where you sit on the floor. Unfortunately, this made the whole experience rather uncomfortable - particularly for those of us with no back support (and of advancing years...) I would recommend that you consider the full implications of this 'authentic' dining experience before... More

My friends, family and I have eaten here many times and tonight was just like all the other visits. Fantastic food! The service is occasionally a little hit and miss, but the all around experience is always good, and I always recommend the place. I suggest you make a reservation as they get busy quite quickly.

In their 'authentic' Thai dining room. This place is always packed and if I'm honest, I'm not sure why. The restaurant is nice enough, the service is good and the food is okay, but there are places not too far away that serve a much better plate of Thai food!

I choose this restaurant after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor but my experience was not as good as the majority of people who reviewed this restaurant. I went solo on a Thursday night and was seated right away. After that I went long periods of time without anyone coming to my table to take my order, when someone did... More

Great ambiance, great service, exceptional Thai cuisine. The staff are dressed in Traditional Thai attire. One of the best Thai Restaurants I have been to, I go back every year!

We've been coming to Rumwong for years and it never disappoints. This occasion was no exception, with their very good mixed starters, soup and a main at about £35 each. The starters are more expensive than other local Thai restaurants, but taste better. It is a bit mean that they charge extra for prawn crackers (or include them as part... More

Went for a work Christmas dinner and we were one of a number of groups in the restaurant. Every table was full by 7.45pm and I felt the staff had to work very hard. Went for two excellent, pretty reasonable wine choices a Sauvignon French and a Chilean Merlot, both under £20 a bottle. And had a number of bottles... More

A group of 27 of us went for our Christmas dinner at Rumwong last week. We had a very nice banquet meal and between us we spent approx. £1500 and gave a very healthy tip. The awful bit was when my friend went to leave they brought him his coat and he realised his scarf (a Ted baker and present... More

We ate a wonderful lunch at Rumwong, and wished we'd been able to eat at least one more meal there. The decor is beautiful, the service is excellent, and our meals were exquisite. On this trip to England, we ate at other Thai restaurants and they simply did not compare.
