I would happily return again and again to Chifan. Service is excellent which perfectly matches a great menu. Food quality is always consistent and reliable.

I would strongly recommend booking at the weekends as it tends to be... More

14 of us for our Mum's 75th. A fantastic meal with a warm and friendly service. Superb food that was very reasonably priced. The staff even bought Mum flowers. Can't thank them enough for a memorable occasion.

Simply the best restaurant in the WORLD! Love the food, delicious every time we've been. The service is absolutely wonderful. Very friendly and attentive without being over the top. Every time we go to a show at Dorking Halls next door we always come here. Just makes the evening!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Chinese acupuncturist. I'm so glad we went as the food was delicious and service outstanding. We had the mixed starter which was excellent. Our main course had been pre-ordered as its a special! It was outstanding. We intend to return regularly.

Had a take away from here, very friendly staff and place looked nice. Shredded beef was not very nice at all, chow mien was lovely, chicken balls were very greasy. Not the best I've had

Very friendly restaurant , we usually enjoy the menu where you pay a set price and order your choice of starters and main course adding extra if needed. We are never disappointed in the efficient service and quality food .@
