Think Woking is just another sleepy commuter town in Surrey? Think again. It's actually a great dining destination, with plenty of acclaimed restaurants in Woking to excite even the most cynical gourmet food fans. The town itself has a thriving foodie scene, hosting its popular Food and Drink Festival in September, where countless local artisan producers show off their skills. But you can find great dishes here all year-round. Have a look at Quandoo's selection of Woking restaurants and treat yourself to a superb meal this evening.
If you fancy some first-rate Italian cuisine, Woking's restaurants can serve up a genuine slice of bel paese cooking whenever works for you. There are some excellent options near the station which focus on the wonders of Neapolitan gastronomy. From deep fried Mediterranean seafood (fritti) to healthy melanzane featuring plenty of aubergines or classic crusty pizzas, these restaurants let Woking's foodies take a voyage to Naples without leaving Surrey, and they are magical places for an evening meal.
However, Italian delicacies aren't the only foods you can enjoy after alighting at Woking Station. Restaurants in the city centre also serve up some fabulous French dishes which are just as enticing and beautifully presented. Settle in at your table, order up some steak frites and pair it with the perfect red. Or go for something less familiar like a Breton fish stew crammed with garlic, vegetables and the marine specialities of northern France. Add in a chocolate fondant bursting with flavour and it's hard to imagine a better way to spend an evening than at one of Woking's fine French restaurants.
If you want to be more adventurous than well-known cuisines like French or Italian, Woking's restaurants an open all sorts of gastronomic doors. For example, the town centre has some superb Lebanese options which offer something different for Surrey residents. Opt for spicy lamb skewers or a gorgeous chicken shawarma kebab, or stick to Lebanon's wholesome salads like fattoush or tabbouleh if you are watching your weight. With an array of veggie dishes and meaty options, Lebanese cuisine caters for pretty much everyone, making it a great choice for some gourmet dining with friends.
