There is no better way to get your tummy ready for a great meal other than with a few starters - especially ones packed with fresh veggie goodness, a Thai food trademark. Following a vegan diet doesn't mean your options have to turn up short! Between vegetables, quorn and tofu, the plethora of Thai dishes available ensures that you'll have a wide variety of dishes from which to choose.
Everything from a cool plate of summer rolls to delicious, steamy corn fritters top our list of the wildest and most appetising vegan Thai starters in Guildford!
1. Papaya Salad and Corn Fritters, Giggling Squid
With a delicious and well-crafted menu, Giggling Squid offers some of the most uniquely-cooked Thai food in town! Mouth-watering green papaya salad with a simple touch of spicy dressing adds a definite zing to your salad you've got to try.

2. Tom Yum Soup and Summer Rolls, Thai Express
Winter is upon us and nothing sounds better than wrapping our hands around a hot bowl of soup, especially of the Tom Yum nature. They're usually served with a chicken or meat broth, but Thai Express offers an equally delicious vegan-safe tofu stock. This rice noodle soup jam-packed with nutritious vegetables will keep your stomach warm, and better for it! The perfect side to your soup are summer rolls, or uncooked fresh spring rolls. Traditionally rolled in up in thin rice paper and stuffed with crunchy vegetables like lettuce, coriander and carrots make this the perfect vegan treat!
