We travelled to Dorking from Worcester to see a show at Dorking Halls. We booked a table at The Chifan for 6.30 p.m. on a Wednesday. Just as well we did as it was packed - no spare tables to be had. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us. Service was quick, efficient and done... More

I celebrated my birthday yesterday at Chifan with four friends and chose the all you can eat option. The quality of the foods was unquestionably high despite it was all you can eat. My favourite were Salt and Chili Squid and Spicy sour soup!! We had a lovely evening thanks to the friendly staff too. Will definitely go back soon... More

Ordered a take away on 26th June. Waited 2hrs and 20mins for my food, only live 15mins away. It was really bad prawn crackers were stale, the food was cold, it didn't taste very nice, was expensive for what we got. They didn't offer us any type of discount. We have eaten here before and been nice. Won't eat here... More

Another great night out at Chifan - good job we booked in advance as restaurant was full all night and turning people away! Party of eight - four new to Chifan, but loved it! Excellent food and service, as ever (although my head this morning suggests maybe one too many beers!), and very pleasantly surprised when bill came to only... More

Nice food but whoever heard of a Chinese restaurant/ takeaway that doesn't offer chips?! I mean Chinese chips are the best. For some reason they are not open Tuesdays either which is strange. Other than that not bad but not my favourite.

Felt a little let down after reading the excellent reviews. The restaurant itself lacked atmosphere and was very empty (Thursday night). The staff seemed disinterested and didn’t speak good clear English so found them explaining the menu very difficult. We chose the eat as much as you like menu which was a decent selection but didn’t include any duck. The... More

We visited with family members for a birthday lunchtime meal. Everything about our experience was wonderful - one of our family is gluten free and cannot eat onion and we were advised which items on the menu were suitable and separate portions arrived for her. The service was excellent and the food delicious - authentic and tasty with a lovely... More

We visited Chifan on recommendation as we were looking for an 'all you can eat' Chinese restaurant. The service was friendly enough, except for the loud arguments we kept hearing from the kitchen. I don't know if it was the waitress or the kitchen messing up, but twice we had to send items back because they had cooked the wrong... More
