Tasty Supper

Came here for a quick, post cinema supper and it was lovely. The shared portion of chicken satay was as nice as I've had anywhere. We had a green chicken curry and a red beef curry (I know, very boring). Green curry just right in terms of clean fresh taste and spiciness. Red curry was tasty but... read more

It was my birthday on Saturday and my wife booked Rumwond, the best restaurant in Guildford. We feel Guildford has a number of nice restaurants but is so lacking in high quality dining, but here Rumwongs never disappoints. It was an awful rainy evening and we struggled to find parking at around 7:30 pm, so finally once we had parked... More

We went there with friends and we really like this restaurant as the food is really good and great atmosphere. However, yesterday, we were disappointed by the staff : we decided to order a bottle of Prosecco (£19.95 as the menu indicated). Few minutes later, a male server came with a bottle and served us. After putting the bottle in... More

Always a friendly welcome, always a tasty meal. Good value light lunch options menu - my noodle soup was excellent. I should not have left my visit so long since the last.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of the Rumwong staff who helped make a really special birthday. Atmosphere was amazing and the food was even better! The staff worked tirelessly for the large table and we're all really great. Definitely coming back soon!

My husband and I visited for a meal on a busy Saturday evening. The staff were polite, attentive and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious. Plenty of it and beautifully presented. Price wise it's not cheap but then you only get what you pay for. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Use to go here many years ago when I did Thai boxing so thought would give it a try but must say not impressed as over priced for average Thai food as the food was not outstanding and our starters were over £8 for Thai buffet which is the usual satay chicken, prawn toast dumplings etc and you only get...

The Rumwong is justifiably one of the better known quality restaurants in Guildford. The staff are professional and welcoming. The food is innovative and delicious. Service was good and we left groaning from over eating. We will be back.

If you love Thai you will love Rumwong. The one downside is the set timed sittings on a Saturday night but if you can work around it then its amazing and well worth a visit.

Having been given tickets for the ballet at GLive and an impromptu shopping trip in Guildford we had a drink at the 3 pigeons whilst contemplating where to eat . We walked up to Rumwong where a small queue was awaiting the doors to be opened . Hopefully a good sign . We were accommodated without a booking . Two... More
