In 1976 it was the first Thai Restaurant in the UK - I was only 16, but have sort of always known it and visited over all the years. Not having been for a while, and having sampled Thai restaurants in between all over the UK and Europe, I was sort of expecting it not to live up to my... More

Had a lovely authentic Thai meal here with my sisters tonight. Chose the special seating area which was very nice and relaxing. The food and menu are great and service is quick. The food was so tasty and we were not rushed at all. The only down thing was that our waitress was so glum and fed up that this... More

Firstly I must say what a lovely place this restaurant is. The decor is lovely and I would have loved to have been seated in the cushioned floor area but I wasn't offered it and only noticed it when I used the bathroom after my meal. The food is delightful and the dishes are very original. The price however is... More

I found the food sometimes good with lovely service but sometimes bad. It is a nice place to eat with great atmosphere and a nice setting.

Exemplary welcome, food, service and atmosphere. Loved everything about it, so did the children. Quality ran through every element, they just seemed to time each phase of the meal correctly, no rushing, no waiting - just perfect!

Came here a few days before my birthday and the food was very tasty, we had 2 prawn dishes with jasmine rice and it was all very tasty, the staff were friendly and the restaurant itself was clean and well presented. Shame we don't live nearer because I would eat here a lot.

We've eaten twice now at the Rumwong - early before going to see a show over the road at GLive. On both occasions the food has been amazing and the service has been friendly and efficient. Fantastic menu to choose from. Always worth booking as the place is so busy - often people waiting for it to open at 6pm.... More

The food here is so delicious - every dish (3 starters, 3 mains) was top quality and tasted divine. The service was impeccable and the overall experience highly superior to that at its sister restaurant Thai Terrace. Our only quibble was with the price as it seemed about 25% overpriced.

Can recommend Rumwong Guildford. Everything was perfect for us on our visit. Staff very polite, ambience good....very busy! Both of us enjoyed every bite of our food. We only had the table for two hours but it was plenty of time for us to relax and enjoy our meal. The two sitting situation was pointed out on booking. It is... More

After reading rave views was very disappointed. Service slow to start. I had chicken in sweet and sour sauce which was so sweet it could have been mistaken for a dessert. Jasmine rice was more like sticky rice. Disappointing thai curry too. Overall did not think food was at all good and very overpriced.
