A group of 5 had lunch on a Sunday in July 2014 and we were the only ones there!! (We are normally put off by empty restaurants, but had booked in advance) We decided on a set menu for ease of ordering. However, the same food ordered separately might have worked out cheaper. The food was well presented and very... More

We went here as soon as they opened as we had children ranging from 7 to 13. From the moment we got there it felt like we were an imposition. I asked for a table and the waiter looked less than pleased, so I checked whether we needed to book, he said yes, but then made up a table for... More

Yet again they serve up a mouth watering Chinese meal. Why do people eat Chinese anywhere else in Dorking? There just isn't anything to match this place for miles.

I've visited here a couple of times before while visiting my parents. It's a lovely old country pub. It has a large seating area to the side of the pub and a few tables at the front. Inside it is separated into 3 or 4 different areas. It feels very cosy and comfy. The staff are friendly and Alex the... More

Been here a number of times now and hope to return soon. Quality of the food is fantastic and there is so much to chose from on the menu! Have never been disappointed by any of the dishes. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Takeaways are of the same high quality as the restaurant. Would highly recommend!!!

This is the best Chienese food I have had. None of the ridiculously big portions with overpowering, enhanced taste. This food is beautifully cooked in a lovely restaurant that provides good service. It is worth that little bit extra than what other Chienese restaurants charge but you are getting what you pay for. It really isn't that expensive. I will... More

In all my years of using this restaurant I have never experienced a bad meal. Service is very good, the staff are always helpful and polite. A good range of dishes on the menu and although I haven't tried them all those that I have were well prepared and delicious.

The food was of a decent quality and served in generous portions but it was a typical British take on Chinese, shying away from anything innovative in preference for tried and tested dishes that, at times, verged on the gloopy westernised Chinese fare of old. The restaurant staff were friendly and the atmosphere cosy, although the tables are too close... More
