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

I've been using the Dorking Brasserie for a decade - about once a month - and their food and service is first class. No dodgy colourings. Try the fish curry.

We were a pair of couples on a Friday night without a booking. We were sat quickly but we're left without menus for quite a while. Service continued to be slow and unattentive for the rest of the night. Food was average, and not very hot. Veg pakoras were more like vegetable patties. Some waiting staff better than others, but...

As a group who regularly go out for a curry we had never been to the Brasserie before, surprising to many. I'd heard such good reports I thought why not try to find out for ourselves. Overall the meal wasn't bad and we had little problem with it at all, but the quality of the food and service was low... More
