I enjoyed a meal with my husband and friends. We chose the eat all you want - taster menu. The food was very enjoyable and so was the house wine. The waitress although very busy on a Saturday night was helpful and polite.

All you can eat for £12.90. Sounds dreadful. It's not. The 'all you can eat' menu is just a shortened version of the full menu and the portions are a smaller version of the full portions.

This was our third or fourth visit and each have been as good as the last. We use the all you can eat menu and every time the food is varied and amazing and very good value for money. The restaurant is small but nice and the staff are friendly and attentive. We will be back again and again.

Went to Chifan for the New Year - the Rooster... It was fab and Dorkers the Dorking Mascot who is the towns a 7ft Cockerel turned up rather than the dragon dancers which was great and apt.

Friends of Dorking filled the restaurant on a very very wet Sunday evening. We were booked for a set menu as a fund raising event. The staff coped very well with the numbers and the service was excellent. The food was very good and served quickly. The portions were generous which was just as well as all of the dishes... More

Another fantastic night out at Chifan with over 40 people celebrating the Chinese Year of the Rooster (Dorking's town emblem/symbol). Excellent food and service, as always, from Jessica and her colleagues!

We always have found the food delightful at Chifan and we are always invited to order seconds on the all-you-can-eat menu which is excellent value. Looking forward to our next visit!

Meeting with few friends for dinner at the restaurant. Tried the all you can eat menu. Absolutely enjoyed the little sample and tasting menu. Will pop in again for the meeting. Friendly and great service too.

As a family we had the all you can eat menu. We found that the food arrived in small portions . This led to having to request more food, that is if you could receive any attention. Staff were not forthcoming to ask if we require service. They are keen to get drinks at the beginning and rush your food... More

My son and I ordered home delivery from here and waited more than two hours for the food to be delivered. It had obviously been kept warm for most of this time and both of us were unwell in the morning with upset stomachs.
