Good Earth - Esher
served with pancakes, cucumber & spring onions
tossed in peppercorns & spiced salt
Best quality by far, although an expensive treat.
Lack of atmosphere, unfriendly staff, food OK but definitely NOT worth the £250 bill (for four for food with only 3 glasses of wine and 2 beers!). Will definitely NOT return ever - had better Chinese meals in local, much less expensive restaurants!
Wonderful food, staff and atmosphere in a little village centre. Plenty of tasty options on the menu.
Absolutely fantastic! Brilliant service and ambience, incredible food. Really looking forward to going again!
Amazing restaurant and amazing food , can’t wait to visit again very soon
Fantastic....clay pot beef was out of this world !
I’d heard friends talk in positive terms about this restaurant for some time so I decided to take my partner there for a birthday dinner. The outstanding food made it a proper celebratory occasion. For starters, we had vegetables in tempura (and he had prawns). I’ve had this before elsewhere but at Good Earth the quality was on a different level. (How is it possible to fry sweet potato in tempura without the potato disintegrating? Good Earth managed it.) My partner reported that the prawns were sweet and clearly as fresh as they could be. The main courses continued to deliver exquisite flavours. I chose ‘chicken’ (made with soya) in a black bean sauce. I’ve had soya-based meat substitutes before but this was a world away from the disappointing blandness that’s often associated with those. Fresh ingredients and complex, beautiful flavours characterized all of our main course dishes. Even the concluding lemon sorbet was clear and clean in its flavour. (Sometimes it’s best not to mess about with classics.) In summary this was a delightful meal, delivered by efficient, informative staff. Good Earth-Esher is now firmly on our list of ‘restaurants to visit on special occasions’ and indeed on any occasion when we can justify it!
Good food and service. A successful formula! We will be back.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. It was my son's 18th birthday celebration and we all had a very enjoyable evening and were not rushed through our meal. At no point did I feel pressured to leave to make room for another sitting. I would definitely visit again!
The Good Earth is an excellent Chinese restaurant and our 'go to' option for a meal out - great service and great food it never disappoints!
A good meal in good surroundings - but pricey. It’s the answer I always give.
Never lets us down - always fantastic. Staff can’t do enough for you and food is consistently excellent
Food is very good. I feel the price of the wine is not warranted in this type of establishment. A NZ SB was £42 a bottle. I would consider this usual price in a slight lot more upscale restaurant than the Good Earth.
Beef in XO sauce and the aubergine side are excellent. One boiled rice is fine for two. The dumplings as a starter are excellent too.
Excellent as always x
As always, The Good Earth, Esher, was outstanding on all levels. Food was delicious, service excellent, we are always well looked after here from arriving until leaving! We had a squid starter that was perfectly cooked, and the dover sole in the clay pot was spot-on, and there could have always been the chance it would be overcooked, but it wasn't. The red bean paste crepe for dessert never ever disappoints!
Always a fantastic meal at the Good Earth in Esher. A true family favourite - we have never been anything less than delighted to visit. Tasty food and an excellent service to match.
As excellent as ever. It’s always a treat. Delicious food, very professionally presented.
My favourite treat as always ! Totally consistent and reliable. Very professional team.
Loved it !
Everything about this visit was perfect. Our first time in this restaurant and will indefinitely return
Incredible meal with friends. We come every year for my birthday and are never disappointed!
Great food and great service. We’ll return!
Always top quality food and excellent attention to detail. A real treat!
The staff was very welcoming and attentive. The food was superb and the ambiance pleasant. Since I was unsure about the portion sizes, our waitress was helpful in explaining the quantity to order. She also made menu recommendations which turned out to be spot on
Amazing food and service
Expensive Chinese food worth it for a treat
The best Chinese in Surrey, the food is always amazing. The atmosphere was incredible on my recent visit as it was Chinese New Year. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Gorgeous food, on the expensive side.
Staff were nice and friendly but didn't always fully listen to what we were saying in their rush to get on to the next thing. There was more than one occasion where they started to walk away from the table when we were still asking them for something, or took away a glass we were still using, so had to call them back a few times.
We went for a birthday dinner. The food was excellent and the service was very good. I would certainly recommend it
Wedding anniversary dinner. I did request for a window table rather than being put along the wall where the banquet 2 seater tables are but no such luck; back on the banquet cheek and jowl 2 seater tables.
Food is always excellent but I do think that alcohol is over priced.
I have enjoyed going to The Good Earth in Esher for several years and have never been disappointed until today.
My wife’s won ton soup lacked seasoning, the sweet and sour pork was somewhat chewy and the steamed sea bass was no better than I’ve had at a myriad of restaurants in Chinatown.
In summary, the food was little better than average but at a much higher price.
It was delicious and service excellent. It’s pricey but for the flavour and service, it was fair. Really enjoyed it.
Always lives up to expectations.Been going there for well over twenty years
The Good Earth is always fantastic. Can’t fault anything. Will always be high on our list of restaurants to go to.
Always a great dining experience, not cheap but well worth paying that bit more. Those Wasabi Prawns 🍤
Celebrated my birthday with friends at this wonderful local restaurant. Fantastic food, fantastic service - faultless in every way
The fantastically tasty food makes up for the premium prices (especially the wine list which could do with 1 or 2 more affordable bottles) although this does not deter diners in this well heeled suburb as it is almost always busy. Definitely a good place for a celebration. Service was friendly and efficient.
No exaggeration but our local Chinese take away has better quality food. It’s a very nice restaurant by way of decor but that’s where it ends I’m sorry to say. All of our 3 main courses tasted the same, the staff seem to think they are doing you a favour letting you eat there and the food gets cold quickly as they don’t provide table warmers under the dishes. As for the prices, well crazily expensive, around £45 a head, which are just not justified by their offering. I can only imagine they are living on a reputation gained a long time ago. Avoid!
This is a Chinese above and beyond what I would normally expect. The food is of exceptional quality, service is attentive and polite, all in all well worth the additional cost.
Wonderful New Years Day meal with the family. Excellent food and service.
Spectacularly good Chinese food, accompanied by great service and a perfectly good wine selection. It's not an inexpensive place to eat, but worth it as a treat, i would have eaten the entire meal all over again!
