This has to be one of many meals we have had but each time it is always as good. Their Hot and Sour Soup is just wonderful and always tickles the taste buds. We normally have a chicken main course but try and vary it. A real must is their broccelii vegetable in ginger and special fried rice. Their wines... More

After a previous successful and enjoyable visit to this restaurant yesterday's experience was exceptionally disappointing. 5/7 of us are vegetarian and were looking forward to the tofu dishes on the menu. Previously, we customised the tofu offerings on the menu successfully and all was good. However....... We were informed that they only had one(!) portion of tofu left! We should... More

Had really excellent dinner here - tom yam soup, sizzling beef Cantonese style (very tender), monkfish with black bean and spicy aubergine. Everything very tasty. Nice ambience too.

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.

Thank Arch B
