We had a delicious family meal here . Good for all ages from 5 to ancient ! Good menu selection. Appetisers were particularly memorable. Mains were the usual selection of Thai popular dishes. All well cooked, tasty and looked good. If I had one criticsm it was that the dishes were not highly spiced. However this is not unusual in... More

I have only been once and could not go again. My sister-in-law has been twice and could not go again. I suffer from seafood/ fish allergies, she suffers from gluten intolerance. If you do too then do not book. After careful explanation, you might be assured by the waitresses that you will be fine but I was left being treated... More

We managed to get a table at short notice which was a good start. When entering the restaurant the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Having been to a few other local Thai restaurants and not been impressed in the past I have to say that Rumwong is the best Thai restaurant for miles around, the food is fantastic, the... More

The Rumwong has been in Guildford for at least four decades, which is probably a testament to its quality; it is situated in London Road, near G-Live, and boasts a pleasant oriental decor. We visited twice during lunch to taste the Set Menu, which we believe it is a recent development for this restaurant. We had a choice of a... More

This is a good choice in Guildford. The menu is huge, with hundreds of options and very fast and efficient service. The papaya salad was perfect The curries are a little anglicized vs what you find in Thailand, but still good When it says 'hot' don't worry, spices are tuned down to suit continental palates

The food is not cheap here but you definitely do get what you pay for. The staff are very welcoming and the food tastes fresh. Booking is almost essential as it is a very popular restaurant but they do facilitate both delivery and take-away and this has been consistent with the high standard of the dine-in food.

There was a lot going on on the menu, but there was just one vegetarian option; some tofu dish that was too sweet. Other than that, an ok experience.

Having visited this restaurant last year and really enjoyed it I decided to return. It didn't live up to expectations, the food was good not great, the menu didn't have the same choice as before and presentation now was more along the lines of the normal Thai or Chinese restaurant, plates of food with little individual presentation or flair. The... More

Easily the best and most consistent restaurant in Guildford, also great for take aways. Not sure I'm a fan of the two evening meal times, early or late, but tend to ring up to order and collect to eat at home. Food always delicious, well cooked, never, ever let us down. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for,... More
