Excellent value

A good local restaurant conveniently close to Reigate station. There is a extensive menu and the prices are keen. My husband had a set menu (spring rolls, beef dish and rice) and I chose Tempura Prawns to start, followed by Schezwan Chicken and egg fried rice. We selected a bottle of sauvignon... read more

We've had takeaway meals from China House before, but this was close to inedible. The proportion of meat to vegetable was unacceptable, being padded out with lots and LOTS of onion, and a heavy dose of oil or grease. Sweet and sour pork seemed to be made from meremscraps of meat, padded out with MORE onion. Prawn toast was just... More

Visited on Wednesday night with family to celebrate my wife's birthday. This was our first meal at China House and we will definitely be returning soon. Food was of a high quality with good portions served piping hot on nicely warmed plates. We choose the "all you can eat" menu and we give it a fair attempt! Extra dishes were... More

Went out for a friend's birthday. If we hadn't already booked, I wouldn't even have gone in. The carpet, tables and walls are all brown. Lots of scuffed paint where chairs had rubbed up against the walls. Bright spotlights made for an in cosy atmosphere. It just had a very depressing air about it. The staff were lovely and I... More

Visited here on Saturday and was glad I booked as the restaurant was packed. We found the staff friendly and helpful. The food was great (squid was amazing). Food wine and beer was reasonably priced. Great night, good value for money.

We decided to visit The China House in Reigate for Mothers Day and what a lovely afternoon we all had. It was quite busy but this did not leave us with long unattended periods of time, all the staff were very attentive and noted when we would next need to be served but not on your case all the time,...

We visited during a Monday lunch time. Initially the restaurant looked closed, but we still went in and found we were the only ones there. In fact, during the whole 2 hours, we were the only ones there! We normally go for the 'all you can eat buffet' but this seemed a little pricey today at £14 pp for lunch.... More

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 wanted to eat... More
