After trying all the Chinese restaurants in Dorking this is the one we return to the most. The menu is what you would expect in a Chinese restaurant but they do seem to do it better than the others in Dorking.

Very good food a lovely lady serving us at the table with a quick responsive service when we needed it! Crispy Duck starter and Hong Kong style chicken and beef with ginger and spring onions! Egg fried rice could have done with more egg but pretty lush other than that! Enjoy!

Just had the best Chinese from Lindas place. Been using the NDC for a while now but tonight, everything was just spot on. It's hard to recommend something in particular as everything had so much flavour. Keep up the good work x x x Doug & Amy.

We eat here based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. Food is amazing, owner is lovely and friendly and its nice and clean. Bit pricey compared to most Chinese restaurants but happy to pay more for better food.

We went to this restaurant on Friday night - we had been craving a chinese all the time we had been on holiday. It is always good. The owner is extremely friendly and the staff are great. Food excellent as always and if you don't want to go out, they now do local delivery. Looking forward to my next visit.
