About The New Fountain Garden

Amid the old antique shops dotting Dorking’s well-known West Street in the town centre, there’s a little bit of the new when it comes to food. The New Fountain Garden trades in tradition – delicious Chinese cuisine is what it’s all about here – but nods towards modernity (or does it turn it’s back?) by ensuring that the health-conscious have a home here. No MSG, no artificial flavours or preservatives are allowed in this kitchen. Only fresh ingredients, herbs, spices, and the nous and passion of the chef and his team. Turn to the restaurant’s set menu selection for what the house recommends – and we second. The affordable Chef’s Recommendation menu for two or more features crispy seaweed and dumplings to start, aromatic crispy duck pancakes, sweet and sour pork, sizzling chicken in a black bean sauce, egg fried rice and more. For seafood fans, the luxurious New Fountain Garden's Seafood Special is the go.

Always excellent food and great service. Staff are friendly and attentive. A lovely period building adds to the ambience. Not too expensive - value for money!

We love all kinds of cuisine and, in our opinion, The New Fountain Garden is up there with the best for top-quality Chinese food at reasonable prices. We've dined there many times and have never had a poor experience. Staff are friendly, efficient and attentive - without being 'in your face' - and we readily recommend this restaurant to all. Enjoy!

A quiet, polite, discrete dining experience in the lovely Dorking. They lways serve good quality food and drink. The New Fountain Garden has been around for a long time, and has stood the test of time.

Service was a little slow and staff seemed a little confused as to what they were meant to be doing. Not all items came out at the same time. We asked for a jug of water for the table and only one of our party was given a glass and poured water from the jug which was taken away? Asking for a gin and tonic and a rum and coke was difficult as they didn't understand what we were trying to say. But, they we're friendly and courteous and always smiling. Food was good.

Excellent food and fantastic service! This was a first visit after a long break to this restaurant. (Previous visits the service had been slow but on this occasion it was perfect and I look forward to my next visit!) :-)

Staff very attentive with a warm welcomb on arrival. Food outstanding, but Kung po chicken more preferred in a light batter . Our fault as we failed to ask about that. All in all a lovely evening. Thank you.

We are regular long term visitors to this wonderful venue. Consistently the food is clean, fresh and delicious, exactly as they promise. Add to that exemplary service and hospitality you have an experience I highly recommend.

Great service and the staff answered all questions about the menu well. The food looked and tasted great. Definitely home made using fresh ingredients. We weren't rushed between courses and fantastic meal 😀

NoMSG used in any of the cooking. Fresh ingredients and nice cosy atmosphere. Three dishes and a bottle of white wine came to £40. A lovely complementary orange to cleanse the palate.

Excellent food and large portions. We had a squeaky table but the restaurant was happy to move us to a silent one which was better as it was by the window overlooking the garden.

Good service and very enjoyable meal and the complementary orange was a lovely touch at the end. We will be visiting again soon. Ambience could be a little better though.

Have visited this restaurant before and the meals have been lovely. This time my meal was awful, tasteless and watery (Sizzling Chicken) with no 'sizzle'. Couldn't eat it. Very disappointed. The staff were very nice, polite and helpful. The toilets could do with being updated.
