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.
Excellent food, as always. The best Chinese retaurant in Dorking, by a long way. Good, efficient service. I recommend the sizzling fillet steak, if you’re a meat eater.
There were 6 of us for dinner last night and we all had a thoroughly great time. The food was fantastic and the service was exceptional. We will be back!
Excellent Service and lovely food, what more could you ask. Service was quick enough to make a lunchtime visit. Will be going back and well worth popping in.
