Still the best Chinese with fantastic service

once again we had a fantastic meal at Chifan. The food is always so good and the meal is true to proper Chinese food. The service as always was excellent and they ensured we had enough time to get to the theatre without having to rush the meal.

Three of us entered the restaurant at 7.30 and had to wait 5mins to get a table as we had not booked. We waited another 20 minutes for drinks another 45 minutes for the duck and starter to arrive. Another 45 minutes to be asked 'are we ready for our main course' and the bowls appeared with our anticipation. Nothing... More

We have had another wonderful evening to celebrate my Son's birthday. It's a tradition and my sons request it. We spend New Years and any other excuse... It's rarely a week goes by before I fancy a Hot sour soup and spare ribs.... The staff are so caring and genuinely lovely and thoughtful. I love the fact the 'eat as... More

A large group of us went to Chifan last night for the Chinese New Year. Excellent food and service as usual ... and the restaurant was fully booked all night - well done Jessica and team! Kung Hei Fat Choi!

We go regularly and think it's the best Chinese restaurant in Dorking. A waitress service all-you-can-eat is a great combination!!

My wife and I regularly use Chifan and we have never been let down by either the food or service. We tend to go on a Sunday evening and we are always offered a warm welcome by Jessica, regardless of how late we arrive. The hot and sour soup is fantastic, the crispy duck is a must, and, if you...

I went there with five friends before our movie at Dorking Halls. The food was really good. Two of my favourite were steam seabass and crispy duck. The steam fish was done the way I had it in China. The staff were attentive and we had a good service overall. Will definitely eat there again!!

Ate here last night - the food was very good, all well-cooked and nicely served, and excellent value for money (although the wine was a bit on the pricey side). The staff were lovely - couldn't do enough to help, and were attentive without being overbearing. Will certainly eat here again!
