The lady at The Waltons recommended the restaurant and I certainly wasn't disappointed. They have 5 stars for hygiene and on Bank holiday Monday at 7pm they were already busy. I like dry curries so started with tandoori chicken followed by chicken tikka, chick pea rice and dall tarka. Shiraz complimented the meal nicely.

Having had a bad meal here some months ago I was tempted back, against my better judgement, for a meal with friends. I wish I'd stuck to my guns as there has been no improvement whatsoever in the service or the food, and this was not just my own opinion. We weren't offered drinks; we had to ask. We waited... More

I have been here many times and thoroughly enjoyed the food. On the last two occasions I have been the staff have been very rude. On the first occasion although very annoyed I let it go as just a bad night and didn't go back for a few months. The I returned last Saturday and was again disappointed by the... More

We planned all week to visit Dorking Brasserie, my boyfriend's son's favorite local Indian restaurant. Saturday night proved popular, but we secured an 8:30 reservation that afternoon. In spite of the bustle, we had our drinks fairy quickly, and our pappadams soon afterwards. The sauces were a little on the sweet side, but the lime pickle was excellent. We ordered... More

Great Indian food you would not expect behind the restaurant's name. Huge menue and delicious chicken madras at an affordable budget.

To start with the good. This restaurant is, in my opinion, one of the best Indian restaurants in Dorking. The food is very good and the atmosphere, with the open brickwork, suffused lighting and decor, probably the best. However, I have a few niggles. Last night the portions of rice were stingy in the extreme. Rice is not expensive and... More

Decent curry and service was good but there is nothing outstanding to differentiate from the mass of curry houses.

Went there for a recovery meal after New Year's Eve! Food was great as always, not heavy or greasy as sometimes curries can be. Good service and friendly staff-well worth a try.

Just ordered a delivery curry, the guy asked for our address. An hour later we called back and they thought it was a collection order and said it would be another hour. 2 1/2 hours later our curry arrived. A guy called Hussan told us he would not give us any money back for being over 2 hours late. Utterly... More

This is an usual place as from the outside, the restaurant looks more like a house than a typical Indian, although inside, the atmosphere is excellent. The waiters are friendly and welcoming, and it's a good place for couples and groups alike. The food here is very good, I had a vindaloo and my girlfriend had a tikka masala. The... More
