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!

Went in as recommended by a friend. Tried the eat as much as like menu. Impressed with the size of the helpings and choice. Staff were lovely and attentive. Good selection of wine as well. Would go back again.

Our favourite local Chinese which has good quality fresh food - when it turns up! Twice in two weeks we have ordered a delivery at about 7.30pm and the order has finally shown up between 9.30-10pm after a lot of phone calls and them admitting both times that they'd forgotten the order, and blaming that they were too busy. We'd... More

We arrived at the restaurant at 9.35 last night and was greeted with 'can only do a starter and main course'! 9.35 is not late!! with the exception of one member of staff who took our wine order the remainder of the service was indifferent bordering on rude. Our starter and main course were put on the table along with... More

I have had one of the best crisp duck and hot and sour soup food in here. Seabass was well done with tasty souse. I would strongly recommend try different taste and even seafood. Enjoy

I have previously given Chifan a really strong positive review; but we were disappointed that Chifan has moved from punching well above its' price point to merely being average. It is still a good place to eat and we may well go back again, but we will no longer look forward to going there in quite the same way. We... More

I have recently eaten at Chifan. The food is excellent especially the lobster and noodles . The staff are friendly and the service is very efficient . If you are looking for Chinese food that is not ' run of the mill' do try here.
