We booked as a party of 8 and chose the 'all you can eat buffet', it kinda works but don't order to many rice/noodle dishes as you will find you have to much. One or two of the dishes were lack lustre but others were sparkling. I had chilli beef, beef with yellow beans both excellent, some great noodles but... More

We ordered the buffet after choosing a main dish each, then shared. all were cooked to perfection. We had one vegetarian in our group... More

We eat here regularly and are never disappointed. The all you can eat is great as you can try lots of small portions of a variety of dishes. For the money the quality of food is great. Lots of fresh vegetables, a variety of sea food. Lovely staff and nicely decorated resturant.

Whenever we're near Dorking at dinner time we're sure to stop by at Chifan. We've been there a few times now and are consistently impressed by the family style service. The food is amazing... it's authentic Chinese at very reasonable prices.
