Lying in wait where the old London Road north meets Dorking’s High Street and Reigate Road, Dos Bandidos have snared more than a handful of unsuspecting diners with their explosive mix of Mexican cuisine, drink, and atmosphere. Casual dining is rewarded with a bounty of starters and tapas to start – the kitchen lets you mix and match if you’re indecisive. Following this warm-up, you’re going to be running the gauntlet between nachos, tacos and quesadillas before the showdown proper has even begun. Featuring live music from Monday to Saturday, reservations are a must for this town centre hotspot.

There’s a fiesta in Dorking and it’s taking place in the heart of the town centre, just around the corner where High Street and Reigate Road intersect. Situated on London Road, Dos Bandidos lures you into its brightly decorated interior with a fiery mix of Mexican bites, tipples and vibes. Take your pick from the wide range of tapas for starters, or simply get the restaurant’s tapas platter to share with your crew.
Hefty fajitas and gaucho-style steaks await those who can handle the heat at Dos Bandidos – among the latter, the 10-ounce prime, juicy ribeye steak topped with a heady blend of garlic butter and smoked chilli sauce is one hot favourite. More BBQ, seafood and salad options complete the food menu, while the cocktails menu is a class act of its own. After all that spice, you’ll want to wash down a tropical pina colada to cool your boots, although we highly recommend that you try the Mexican Matador for its intoxicating hit of vodka, melon liqueur, Jose Cuervo silver tequila and amaretto. As the saying goes, “Don’t siesta, let’s fiesta!” Why take a snooze when you can feast and party at this homely spot in central Dorking? Reserve now at Dos Bandidos for the best seats.
Great food and well priced, will 100% be a returning customer. Made a great change from the normal Indian or Chinese food for a treat
The food is excellent with a great variety, the staff are friendly and helpful (but not over attentive, so you can get on with your meal in peace), and the background music is not overpowering, so you can't have a conversation.
Service was good and the food was delicious. Good tasting with fresh ingredients. Really enjoyed our whole experience here. Would definitely recommend the restaurant to others.
Excellent service, great choice of food and colourful surroundings. Added bonus of live music too each time we have visited. Would definitely recommend Dos Bandidos
Lovely food and staff. No live music which was a shame, as been on a Fri in the past and there was live music. Heater left in the exit way of toilets which was not ideal if one was a bit tipsy. Food was hot and spicy and we made our own atmosphere. Pricing was good valve and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
The service was good and the food was greatly enjoyed. No problems there. Just a couple of things. There doesn't seem to be much heating in the restaurant. Luckily it wasn't a cold night! Also the ladies toilet entrance needs a light it was rather dark. The hats were fun and we were able to take photos.
Service was quick as we had a show to get to they made sure we we're feed and out the door on time The food was great and a lot of it we did look good sitting there with our Mexican hat's on
Food was absolutely delicious and staff were very accommodating of a fussy four year old. Children loved wearing the sombreros. It was just a shame that the restaurant was so quiet - even for a Monday night.
We all had a lovely meal, all freshly prepared and well cooked, really good value! We were even treated to some entertainment, most unexpected but good fun!
The food was quite nice, but very little atmosphere in the restaurant. Lighting too stark, too cold on a cold evening, one little plug in heater the other side of the restaurant! Would go back in the daytime, but not really in the evening I'm afraid.
