First time to this restaurant, had a table for 8, we had a big plate of mixed starters, also tried the dumplings and squid. Followed that with duck/pancakes etc. We ordered a huge selection of mains, with various rice, noodles and a couple of vegetable dishes. We all enjoyed every part of this meal, all cooked fresh, nothing swimming in... More

We had a table for the five of us and the meal was very nice. Started with drinks, then the mixed hot hors d'oeuvres. Then we proceeded on to the lovely crispy duck. For our main meals we shared lobster and noodles, sesame chicken, fillet of beef Cantonese style, and sesame chicken. All the dishes were well done and very... More

After paying nearly £15 for a chow mein, spring rolls and chicken satay I'm sad to say it really isn't worth it! You get 4 satays and 4 spring rolls but the chow mein had 6 very small pieces of chicken. Taste wise it's the same as your normal run of the mill Chinese takeaway which is disappointing as it...

Had a Thai chicken green curry at this restaurant with spring rolls as a starter. The food was fairly well presented, but it did arrive all at once, so by the time the starter had been eaten, the main course was tepid. The portion size was reasonable, however the quality was not clever. Despite having a curry, there was no... More

Have been here several times with friends, always friendly and accommodating staff, the Sunday buffet is good value cooked in the kitchen to order not like other restaurants where it's all out under hot lamps. We love the starters so tend to order a couple rounds of various items to split before finishing on a main. Usually for 3 of... More

I now live in London and travel back to Farnham just to come to the Bon east. I don't know how they do it. It's real magic. That fried smoked chicken is a thing of dreams

We have eaten here many times over the last few years and always enjoyed the food and the service. Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the service on our most recent visit. We had booked a table for 11 people for my wife's birthday. Again we have eaten here in large groups before and had very good service but this... More

Have had many many takeaways and sit ins from Bon East over the past 6+ years and always been a huge fan. Very expensive but was always worth it. But the last 2 takeaways have been very disappointing. Cheap meat, very oily. Chicken Noodles dish was inedible. Won't be using again

I have eaten at this restaurant several times before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I therefore wanted my friends from the USA to experience a excellent quality Chinese meal. That did not happen. We waited a long time before we were asked about drinks or supplied menus. An even longer wait for the drinks to arrive. We ordered the mixed... More

Eaten here a couple of times now and every time the staff have been friendly and the food has been very good. Around the area I haven't eaten better Chinese food and would recommend to anyone looking to eat Chinese in and around Farnham. Very good.
