Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We felt a little guilty booking for lunch on New Year's Eve when you know that all their attention will be focused on the evening. It was the only opportunity we had to catch up over the festive holiday so we went for it! After an initial glitch - the starters we wanted weren't available but it was explained to us that it was the first day they had been open since before Christmas and obviously we want fresh food so ......the alternatives offered to us were delicious. Our main courses were a bit small on the 'stew' element and large on the rice but it turns out that the rice is the real star of the show here and I would quite happily just eat rice followed by more rice! The texture and flavour is amazing. We had a little bottle of prosecco each and a glass of wine and our bill including tip came to £40 each. For a really good, interesting lunch in a stylish place I thought this was perfectly acceptable. Plus, we looked at our watches at the end of the meal and realised they'd allowed us to sit chatting over our wine for three hours!! But I guess it does have 'lounge' in the title and lounge is what we did. We loved it and look forward to returning with our husband's really soon.

It's great to see that Chello of West Byfleet has the restaurant back open for business. Fully compliant with COVID19 precaution, but not intrusive, generating a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is spacious and very well air-conditioned, which makes all the difference at this time. All staff are family members only. The food is excellent and freshly prepared without long waiting times and a meal for two with drinks for less than £90 is excellent value. I highly recommend all the dishes from the grill but there is also an excellent choice of unusual first courses to bring you in gently. But without doubt, the jewel in this restaurant's crown is the staff. Attentive and welcoming you would be hard-pressed to find a friendlier restaurant. I'm so glad that it's now open again and look forward to many visits in the coming weeks.

I visited last weekend with my parents, who had been to Chello a few times. We were greeted in a friendly and open manner,our jackets taken and taken to an available table. Our waiter was so knowledgeable about the menu and was able to make some really great recommendations, which we went with and were not disappointed by. The food was presented superbly, with such care. The flavours were fresh, punchy and delectable. The portion sizes were so generous, I couldn't actually finish my main. I never usually order pudding, but my Dad was convinced I'd never taste cheesecake as good - and he was right. It was devine! Overall, a really enjoyable, relaxing evening with superb food in every course!

Lovely place, great staff but thought the food was a bit disappointing, my lamb was tough, chicken was nice ; my friends chicken came with a gravy which was rather oily. We go regularly to other similar restaurants and felt disappointed. Plus, it was a lot more expensive than the better places. Thought £3.60 for a peppermint tea was a rip off - it was only a tea bag and £2.50 for soda water!! We had a fun evening though

First meal out with my wife, daughter and her husband for over a year. We booked as it was Persian Cuisine and so enticed our palate. The tables are laid out with space between them. Music to match the atmosphere. An original old flooring restored. We choose our starters in a shared platter, allowing us to taste a variety of authentic starters. Uniquely different to Mediterranean or Asian Cuisine I urge you to try it. We all chose different dishes for main courses. Mine was a Lamb Kabab Bakhtiari and was choice lamb fillet cubes cooked medium/well done and the whole dish was worthy of a top restaurant which I put the Chello Restaurant into that category. Wine although £25 for a bottle was a Malbec with a smooth finish to the palate. We finished with three choosing Homemade Bastani Saffron ice cream and my daughter choosing an equally good alternative. We will definitely eat here again and I firmly believe it to be the best restaurant in West Byfleet. The cost for 4 people with a bottle of wine was around £35 each plus tip. Considering the quality of the restaurant this was good value. Well done, we look forward to eating with you again. PS: the service from the staff was impeccable.

We had a takeaway from here this weekend and it was absolutely fabulous! We had the mixed grill for two. All the meat was cooked to perfection and the rice was lovely. The quality was just as good as being in the restaurant. It was packaged very well so the food was still hot when we got home (currently it’s collection only). We will definitely be having a takeaway from a Chello again and look forward to it re-opening properly in the future

We really enjoyed our meal on our first visit when the restaurant was newly opened but went back after the lockdown and really noticed the difference. The waiter who took our order was not as knowledgeable about the menu, the portion sizes seemed much smaller, especially the stew. The quality did not seem as good apart from the one dish pomegranate grilled lamb, which was very tasty. The rice was also delicious. Overall though it seemed poor value for money even with the 'eat out to help out'.

Visited for the first time today, a quiet Sunday and we were the only table at first but the service was attentive and fast, food was freshly cooked and delicious - the kebab koobideh is as good as some of the well established Persian restaurants in London. Despite being quiet the atmosphere was lovely, beautifully decorated restaurant with the widest variety menu we have seen. My Iranian father was absolutely thrilled to see some of his favourite childhood dishes on the menu and loved that they had his favourite bread. If you haven’t tried Persian food, Chello is a great place to start. If you’re already a fan, you won’t be disappointed!

Came here for some authentic Persian food on a sunday evening with my partner. The food was absolutely delicious! We had drinks in the lounge area to begin - a tequila cocktail and a rose cocktail (my favourite!) For starters we had a mixture of different dips and flatbread, as a vegan I had an aubergine dish for mains and my partner had a mixed grill. For desert i had a vegan cheese cake and my partner had mango sorbet. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing, service was 10/10 - the food was next level delicious and the cocktails are great. Will be coming back, and would recommend to everyone!

We made our first visit to Chello yesterday evening. We loved the resturaurant, the atmosphere was good. The food was lovely, good choice of things to eat on the menu. Beautifully cooked, tasty and nicely presented dishes were brought to our table. Good portion sizes too. The staff were friendly and polite. We will definitely go again. As someone who has food allergies it was also excellent to have a well laid out menu with lots to choose from with allergy advice given for each option. A must I feel in restraurants now. Well done Chello!

There’s no bad word to describe about this place!!! I was told about this place through a family friend of ours and they weren’t wrong when they mentioned about the quality and service. We made our first visit to Chello restaurant today (21/8) and I ordered a variety of kebabs and starters. The taste of it all was just so delicious! It was beautifully cooked and all I would like to say is a huge thank you to the chef and the waiters for everything! The waiters was very welcoming and attentive. Thank you once again for the amazing service . I definitely would recommend this place!! The restaurant looked so cosy with the candles and to top it all off, the restaurant had Persian music in the background.If you like kebab’s then this is definitely your place to go! I will definitely be back for sure!!!!!

We took advantage of Eat out to Help out to eat out with friends. Chello had been recommended before lockdown, so we'd wanted to go for some time. We weren't disappointed. Service was welcoming and attentive. The menu includes several starters and grills that are suitable for sharing, plus other meat and vegetarian dishes and the signature "chello" rice dish. We shared and enjoyed many exotic flavours, deep fried and grilled dishes, and delicate starters. Each dish is carefully prepared and the menu is not over-long. The decor and ambience are comfortable and relaxing. Chello is an easy walk from West Byfleet station, so no need to take the car. Even without the welcome Eat Out discount, Chello is good value and we look forward to our next visit.

A great experience, from the friendly welcome onwards. This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, the decor fascinating, with an amazing history. The menu has something for everyone, and the attentive staff are happy to explain the dishes if you are unsure. That said, the food was great, sharing a starter, then enjoying something different for our mains. You must try the Persian Chai, best tea ever.

The food was disappointing, we ordered two starters, a salad and two main dishes and a few extra bread (Iranian naan Lavash and Sangak). One of the starters was delicious (koofteh) and the rest of the food was disappointing. The proprietor was happy to take our order after confirming they baked Iranian bread on site. It took nearly two hours for our take away order to be made ready. During this time, he was short with us for ordering the extra bread. Apparently they are not a bakery, and have a small oven! The bread sold to us was shop bought tortillas warmed up and not the Iranian naan Lavash expected.

We decided to take advantage of the government eat out to help out scheme and tried Chello Restaurant for the first time. It was really, really good. The service was amazing, the menu very comprehensive and the food was delicious! I haven't had much experience with Persian food but I really enjoyed the fresh flavours. Social distancing and continual cleaning was clearly in place. We will definitely be going back!
