Very tasty food but sadly overpriced and especially since some tapas portion sizes are very small, particularly the fish/seafood. £100 for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids means you can get more food for less money elsewhere - a shame.

The food was delicious, the service excellent - it just seemed a pity that there were not more customers. Well worth a visit.

Delicious, tasty food that was freshly cooked. Great service, such a shame it wasn’t busier. We did go on a Weds evening though.

South Korean inspired food, fresh, packed full of flavour and beautifully presented. Great value and unobtrusive yet efficient service. A real gem in the heart of Godalming.

Surrey needs to know about this tapas bar. Open bar with seats and cosy tables for those wanting a more quiet feel. Service was helpful and friendly. Affordable and the menu has a something for everyone, I could have eaten more of the Monkfish.

Delicious food and great cocktails. I am a coeliac and they had a gluten free menu. So many dishes could be adapted without any compromise. Very impressed!

This is about the 5th time I have eaten here, and everytime the food is brilliant, the service is great, the only reason that I have given it 3 stars for ambience is that we went v early in the evening and there was only one other table with people on it, so it didnt have the normal busy air about it.
I would recomend the spicy chicken and the beef, they are both fab. They also cater really well for glutten free (my friend) and dairy free (both of us)

We really enjoyed our meal with friends there recently and the food was nice, but the serving staff were slow and inexperienced, plus we felt it was extremely overpriced for the portion sizes.

A bill of £170 at the end of the evening, despite only 1 of the 4 drinking alcohol, seemed hefty to us.

We will not be rushing back again anytime soon, I’m afraid, as feel there are plenty of other places where you can get better value for money and leave feeling full.

We enjoyed our evening at Bada Tapas. There was a good buzzy ambiance and the service was good. The food is very tasty and the portions are good, this is certainly one of the better eateries in Godalming. My only minor gripe is that it did feel a bit on the pricy side for this kind of food. Having said that, we will definitely be back!

Our first time at Bada and it won’t be our last. Welcomed warmly by the staff who talked us through the menu. We started with a delicious cocktail. The food arrived and it was delicious. We had ordered two tapas per person as suggested and it was the perfect amount. We finished off with a lovely dessert. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this restaurant

A pleasant enough experience but nothing special. Had the spicy monkfish (not spicy at all - very small portion) and the Soy Pork (better). Rice portion also small for the price. Finished with Korean pancake - interesting but again expensive for what was served. My partner's coffee was, however very good. Is this a wine bar with food on the side or a restaurant serving cocktails? And why does every restaurant I go in these days not bother with a proper ceiling but lazily just paint all the service ducting matt black!

Excellent food, great flavours and a lovely restaurant. Sadly let down by poor service on my friends birthday. Drinks arrived after food, one drink didn’t arrive at all. Had to remind waiting staff twice and then my friend got up and found the drink sitting on the bar! A shame as it is a great place, so just some polishing up needed on service to cope with what will no doubt be a very popular place.

Not as good as we've experienced before. Had to chase several dishes up and reorder others that didn't arrive. Unusual, we've always had great meals before....hopefully just a blip this time

My first experience of Asian fusion tapas and hope there will be many more! Absolutely delicious - plates were bought out as soon as ready and piping hot would definitely recommend it. We had 4 mains Plus a dip for starter between 2 & was the perfect amount of food (we even had room for a dessert)

Really enjoyed my visit to Bada and will certainly be back again in future. Unusual dishes I'd not tried before, but really delicious. Some were a little bit salty for my pallet but I enjoyed everything I tried. The portion size is generous & aimed at being able to share each dish with another person. Just 3 desserts on the menu and every one of them was lovely.The staff were very friendly, and knowledgeable about the food. Lovely cocktails too. Recommended
