Took the teenagers here to celebrate the end of exams, it was a fun evening with helpful staff and a good varied menu. They were able to cater for my vegetarian daughter without any problems. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. We took the left overs home for 'breakfast'!

It was really cold in the restaurant the night we visited which made it a little uncomfortable. The service is ok, nothing special but you get your food and drink brought to you which is all they're required to do. The food itself was very ordinary and not as tasty as I've had at other Chinese restaurants. My lemonade was... More

Decided to visit on a week night. Restaurant seemed very quite. But the food and service were fantastic, no wait for food, nothing was too much trouble. Think we have found our new favourite Chinese

We came on a Tuesday night for a special dinner. Service was good and friendly. The food came promptly and was delicious. The soft crab was my husbands favourite and my son and girl friend favoured the calamari for starters. Then we had 1/2 a duck between the four of us which was delicious followed by lemon chicken, sizzling fillet... More

Good food but lacking in atmosphere, however to be fair it was a Thursday night, bill was a tad high, all in possibly due to the cost of the wine. Overall one of the better Chinese restaurants in Dorking. Long and short, would go again so don't be put off.

For our Christmas party this year, we chose the Fountain Garden and are glad we did! Our party of twelve was made to feel very welcome and we were looked after very well. Most of us opted for a chef's special which included a starter platter, and the chef's choice of main dishes. Everything was flavourful, beautifully presented and plentiful.

We were made very welcome as soon as we stepped inside. The restaurant was clean and comfortable. Our family, which included girls of 14 and 11, were all warmly and politely greeted. The menu offered many choices. Our main courses (duck, monk fish and lemon chicken) were well presented and delicious. The helpings were generous. The service was attentive. Including... More
