“Always a pleasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We went to Rumwongs for our staff Christmas party this December and sat in the Khan Tok traditional part, where you sit on pillows on the floor. As always the food, service and atmosphere was all fantastic (though the less agile men in our group found the seating challenging!)

Biggest tip of the year - visit the Rumwong Thai Shop next door to buy some of their homemade satay sauce, sweet chilli dip, salad dressing and groceries to recreate some of those yummy dishes at home!

“Lovely.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This has been part of Guildford for many years and has kept its reputation. Lovely atmosphere and service - and the menu! Prices are very reasonable. Does get very crowded though.

“Fantastic Thai Restaurant in Guildford town centre! Very authentic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

First thing we said to each other once seated and after a few moments of looking at menus and around was how authentic the place was. We were in Thailand on holiday last year and it really felt like we were somehow transported back to Thailand whilst within this restaurant. The staff are particularly a beacon of pride for this place. The uniforms and their demeanor, it felt real and not put on. This place is special. Romantic atmosphere so excellent for couples. The food was divine. Can't wait to go again. One of the best restaurants in Guildford.

I'd say this place would be a great introduction to Thai food for newbies and a very pleasant surprise for Thai food fans.

“First Class Thai Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

There are a few good Thai Restaurants in Guildford but in my opinion this is the best one of all. Beautifully cooked, vibrant tasting Thai food and excellent service from the staff. We were there as a group of 12 for an office evening and we were all served at the same time even though the restaurant was very, very busy. Great varied menu and choice of dishes.

“Thai Reataurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have visited more than once for special evenings- birthdays etc. - Food is always exciting- exceedingly well presented with really good service. We have always felt that the charges seem less than we were expecting! -Altogether a very enjoyable experience.
In the evening easy to park close by either in the road or in the G live car park opposite
