Eat here! Just make sure you don't have anywhere else to be

Honestly, before I went to China House last week I didn't have high expectations. I'd been told it was a place for kids to get a cheap dinner and the food was poor quality. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a go as my boyfriend and I were having a rather intolerable craving for Chinese but also... read more

Having been a huge fan of the china house for a number of years its no surprise to hear so many good reviews. My fiance and i eat hear fairly often as we always get great service and enjoy the food here for what i believe to be great value. £15 (roughly) used to get you an 'all you can... More

Me and my boyfriend used to visit here for the buffet which was great and you'd really stuff yourself. We went a few days ago and they don't do this anymore, but it's pretty much the same idea. 3 courses, 8 maximum starters (between 2), middle course - duck or soup, and as many mains as you like. The service... More

Newish to the area and based on positive reviews on here, decided to give China House a go. Without doubt, the worst Chinese I have ever had. The mains were so bad that I decided to skip dinner rather than eat them. My other half persisted and managed half a plate. There was no sauce just limp, orange, watery, tasteless... More

Early Saturday evening - we hadn't booked and they knew they were going to be busy but they sorted a table with no fuss and great charm. I liked the plan of the three course menu with the large variety of dishes. The food was good and well presented and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We have been before... More

Nice food for reasonable prices. Everyone will find it's favourite on the menu. We have 3 courses and have no issue. We'll come back when in Reigate again.

I've been going into China House for years and years and had gotten accustomed to the usual format of arrive, stuff face, hate self, leave. I hadn't actually realised that the food quality had been steadily going downhill for years because I was more concerned about quantity then quality. Went in about a month ago now with my partner for... More

The owner and staff could not have been more friendly. I have never eaten so much food, a wonderful relaxed atmosphere, food and drink a plenty. The lovely lady who owns the restaurant laughed with me about my Chinese pronunciation . The duck and lamb starters were amazing. If its your birthday make sure you tell them.

The old eat as much as you like has been replaced and yes the portions were smaller but if you want more you can ask for it, I find it better as if you discover something new you can get another portion. The yummiest things were the double cooked pork and the tai style prawns. The service was friendly and... More

We booked a table for 6 on a Saturday night as my daughter wanted her sons to experience Chinese food for the first time. I cannot fault a single thing about our evening and my grandsons are now hooked. The service was excellent and they made a real fuss of the boys, bringing them extra (free)of the things that they...
