Great food; Great service

Visited "Chifan" last (very rainy), Friday evening with our 9 yr old niece, having read some good reviews on Trip Advisor. Greeted very warmly at the door & soggy umbrellas were taken for us & we were showed to our reserved table. Not a huge restaurant...I'm guessing fully booked around 50 covers... read more

We had a takeaway delivered from this restaurant and service was very pleasant and helpful. Our mixed starter for the 2 of us was very good - spring rolls, squid, seaweed, ribs and shredded chicken. Our main courses were less successful - Singapore noodles and lemon chicken were just ok. However given the very low cost including delivery it was... More

Visited the restaurant last Monday for a meal with friends. They had been before and had sung its praises. We were not disappointed. Mondays is an'eat all you can' menu with the very sensible proviso that you have to finish what you start before ordering more. Everything was cooked freshly and was delicious. Very friendly welcome and good service. Definitely... More

I live in Dorking and it is well known that Chifan is the place to go. It is always packed and as such, the food is beautifully fresh. We often eat in and really enjoy being able to choose something different every time. The squid is delicious but then so is everything else! We regularly get a take away. Last... More

We were so looking forward to take away from here after reading the trip advisor reviews. We've been looking for a good Chinese place nearby. We love London's Chinese restaurants but its often difficult to find good Chinese for where we live. We ordered many different things from Chifan but I knew it was going to be bad when I... More

We stopped off for dinner on our return from a weekend away and this topped off a great weekend. Jessica, as always, is just lovely and her and her team served us well and with lovely food. Our duck starter was very good and our main courses were very much enjoyed

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
