The first time I visited Dorking Brasserie I declared it to serve the tastiest [bangladeshi] Indian vegetable dishes I had sampled in years. The second time I visited Dorking Brasserie I declared it 'so so'. If only I'd left it at that. Today I was...More

I have eaten in many Indian restaurants, I also lived in India for 8 years so have a good knowledge of Indian cuisine. This meal, Indian or otherwise, was completely uninspiring and the service appalling. We ordered our food and drinks, after selecting the wines...More

The lady at The Waltons recommended the restaurant and I certainly wasn't disappointed. They have 5 stars for hygiene and on Bank holiday Monday at 7pm they were already busy. I like dry curries so started with tandoori chicken followed by chicken tikka, chick pea...More

Having had a bad meal here some months ago I was tempted back, against my better judgement, for a meal with friends. I wish I'd stuck to my guns as there has been no improvement whatsoever in the service or the food, and this was...More

Great Indian food you would not expect behind the restaurant's name. Huge menue and delicious chicken madras at an affordable budget.
