Fetcham Tandoori, 248 Cobham Road, Fetcham, Surrey KT22 9JF Tel: 01372 374927
Reviewed: January 2010


'The quality of the food was complemented by equally fine service and a warm, relaxing environment. All in all a great evening out, especially for the more discerning curry fans.'



Glo, The Heart, New Zealand Avenue, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey KT12 1GH: 01932 222004
Reviewed: August 2009


'The balance between traditional and contemporary is just right, and I liked the informal atmosphere very much - and all at a price that won't break the bank. Glo - sorry, go - and experience it for yourself!'



The Good Earth, 1418 High Street, Esher, SurreyKT10 9RTTel: 01372 462 489
Reviewed: August 2010


'Even The Times esteemed food critic Giles Coren told me Id enjoy it; but then he did also ask me to plug his latest book...'



Layla Restaurant, 110 High Street, Esher, Surrey KT10 9QL: 01372 462333
Reviewed: December 2008


'Best of all, the lighting is perfect - subtle and warm and a model that other restaurants could learn from.'



Le Raj, 211 Fir Tree Road, Epsom Downs, SurreyKT17 3LB Tel: 01737 371371
Reviewed: May 2011


'The reputation of Le Raj precedes it; stretching not just across Surrey, but right across the world'



Red Chilli Restaurant, Horsham Road, Mid Holmwood, Dorking, Surrey RH5 4EH
01306 644816
Reviewed: September 2009


'I recently spied an advertisement on a billboard in Dorking that read: 'Red Chilli - the best restaurant in Surrey'. Hmm, a claim that should be investigated, I thought.'



Royal Garden Restaurant, Shirley Hills Road, Shirley Hills, Surrey CR0 5HQ Tel: 0208 654 6491
Reviewed: April 2010


'I have to confess that one of the selling points for choosing the Royal Garden online had been the impressive list of famous names who have dined there...and best of all... Star Wars R2-D2 and C-3PO.'



Rumwong, 18-20 London Road, Guildford, Surrey GU1 2AF: 01483 456768
Reviewed: December 2009


'Unlike most people, Ive never really rated Thai food that much it just doesnt wow me in the same way that great Indian or Chinese meals have done on numerous occasions. But that all changed the other night when I visited Rumwong in Guildford.'



Thai Terrace, 7th Floor, Castle Car Park, Sydenham Road, Guildford, Surrey GU1 3RT Tel: 01483 503350
Reviewed: July 2008


'The address of the Thai Terrace sounds like a bit of a joke - 7th Floor, Castle Car Park - but in fact it massively undersells what turns out to be a stunning venue.'
