We've been her quite a few times as the food is always delicious and the servers are lovely and friendly. The soft shelled crabs are amazing, as is the chicken satay and the chicken chow mein. This is definately one of the best resturants in Dorking

Went here with 2 friends for lunch & thoroughly enjoyed the experience! We went for the £23 set meal, which gave us a taste of everything, including Lemon Chicken, Crispy Seaweed, Peking Duck & Satay! Very fresh tasting food, particularly noticed with the food in batter. Plenty to eat. Lovely attentive service in a beautiful old building. Would definitely visit... More

We ate here bank holiday Monday. Service was good, food was tasty. There was 5 of us and we ordered the set menu at £23.00, asking if instead of lemon chicken we could have sweet and sour chicken. Not a problem. Lots to eat for 5. On the arrival of the bill we had been charged for 5 sweet and... More

Went here with a friend. The food was very tasty and authentic, We ordered a sweet and sour pork and a beef in black bean sauce. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. The interiors were interesting felt like a nice 1700s house. Not cheap but you get your money's worth because of the quality.

We had a great evening here, there was 9 of us so instead of each choosing we all had the set meal and like the said menu we kept eating and the food kept coming. The food was lovely and the staff friendly and helpful, would definately recommend and will eat here again. We all had such a lovely time.

Needing a mid week meal out due to kitchen renovations, we decided on the spur of the moment to go for Chinese because it looked busy and for a change because we generally don't favour Chinese restaurants having very often been disappointed. We were not disappointed this evening, it started well with handmade really tasty dumplings, followed by juicy beef... More
