“Lovely fresh food and great value!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

We visited the New Dorking Cantonese this week as we hadn't been there for some time, and weren't disappointed. The Chinese and Malaysian menu is extensive and the food lovely and fresh. Service is fast and friendly too. What was also amazing was their willingness to tailor the food to our needs (ie dishes free from gluten, wheat, MSG etc) and unlike other restaurants in Dorking you can be 100% confident they understand and deliver such dietary requirements. Nothing was too much trouble it seems. The hostess Linda was very attentive and obviously keen to ensure we had a memorable meal there. We won't be leaving it so long next time, and we're delighted to hear they now deliver takeaway meals too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Food was adequate, service really good.”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We decided to go to this restaurant for a Mother's Day dinner. I drive past it every day and I looked forward to trying it out after the mixed-but-leaning-towards-favourable reviews on Tripadvisor.

The restaurant is small but cosy. It was empty upon our arrival but soon a couple more parties arrived. We decided to go for the set meal and this was probably a mistake. The special hors d'oeuvres were excellent : bbq ribs, satay chicken, prawn wonton, prawn toast and spring rolls accompanied by satay and sweet and sour sauce. They were served piping hot and tasted great. The Peking Duck was very average, leaning to not so good … it was lukewarm. I did not think the mains were anything special … we had the chicken in cashew nuts, some stir fried vegetables and the crispy beef in chilli sauce. This was nice though I could never find the beef. The special fried rice was very average too.

Linda is a very nice lady and the service did not lack in any aspect, but I was not impressed with the food at all. We might visit again and order some of my favourite dishes a la carte to see if there is a difference. I thought it was a bit overpriced too … 89 pounds for 2 adults and 2 children plus tip. Portion sizes were ok as I normally feel terrible with the huge waste of massive portions in other Chinese restaurants - here it was just the right amount, though we could all have done with a bit more rice (we ordered an extra bowl and we were still short!)

“Good Chinese”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

Friendly service. Food was quick. No MSG after effects. Menu is pretty standard but food is prepared well and is always fresh and a cut above the generic Chinese mush you often get. Not expensive and good portions. Not busy so lacked atmosphere but overall a nice place. Certainly the best chinese in Dorking by some way.
