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.
Food sounds delicious?

Super restaurant, cosy and friendly. Enormous menu choice and staff happy to adjust for allergies. Portion we're very good value for money so ended up taking what we didn't eat away with us. Ate it the next day and still perfect even after warming up! Food and service superb.
The food was the usual high standard and it was a nice atmosphere. The restaurant was quite busy so service was a little bit slow.
Sadly this time there was a loud lady. Not the restaurants fault.
