The Good Earth"s ideal is to continuously strive to improve and innovate as reflected in our menu. We were one of the first Chinese restaurants to break the traditional mould and take an approach based on quality and authenticity, quality in ingredients, cooking and service.

We always go to the good earth for special occasions. It’s not your usual Chinese restaurant. If you want quality freshly cooked food that tastes great and feels full of goodness (not MSG!) and served with warm smiles then this place is for you...
We loved it!

One of the best Chinese restaurants I’ve visited. Whilst it was pricey, it was worth it!

The Good Earth never fails to amaze me how good it is. We don’t mind driving for just over an hour to get to this our favourite Chinese restaurant.

First time I visited after hearing good reviews from friends. Was not disappointed. All the dishes we ordered were excellent including the sea bass which was superb. Service was very good and attentive. Will be coming back for sure. Certainly not the cheapest night out but you get what you pay for.

I have been here before and it's been wonderful however wouldn't go on a Friday.
Rushed service.

They couldn't wait to get our order, serve the food and gave us our. Restaurant had excessive tables which meant everyone was cramped and disturbing each other to get in/out.

The staff was under pressure but still very courteous; thank you!

Food was lacklustre and quite expensive for what was served.

We enjoyed the place and food and wine and service A good and varied menu. The only criticism is that the tables are too close together and table should be removed so a more spacious feel and privacy

Have been here a few times. The last visit was over 1 year ago.
Service is fine and staff pleasant.
Food quality has changed since last visit, and was not to our expectation. However I can not say this for the entire menus. It could be the chicken dishes we ordered were not satisfactory. Singapore noodles was great.
Will try again in a few months.

Nice food ...small portions & very expensive! When you order a dish for a table of 4 you expect there to be at least enough for 4 ??

Well for consistent service and quality the Good Earth at MillHill takes a prize. We have been dining
there for over 20 years and you still know what to expect!!!

It could be improved with some additions /deletions to the menu which has now stayed the same
for I think 5 years - please more Sichuan/Hunan dishes.

Good food and service. My only complaint is how small the dining area is as you can feel as the tables are quite close to each other but that wouldn’t stop me going there.

We came as a group for dinner for the first time and as we walked in, the restaurant looked very nice and had a great ambiance. The service was excellent, everyone was polite and the service was fast. We ordered a couple of dishes in which the quality was very good. The only improvement is the portions can be more generous especially for the price, and some dishes can have stronger flavour (stronger garlic flavour on a garlic infused dish, stronger red bean flavour on the red bean crepe, for example), they tend to be on the lighter side. The restaurant is a little noisy but that did not stop us from having a good meal. Overall, we really enjoyed the meal and the only thing that would stop us going often is the price as it is on the higher end of the market.

Food is delicious and service is really good. The dishes are perfect size to share or eat all for yourself. There are lots of options from chicken, fish, vegetarian, beef and pork dishes. Be careful not to over order on the starters as it’s so easy to do and try to save room for the toffee apples at the end which are delicious! Great place to visit with family or friends!

The food is nice but nothing overly special to warrant the price they charge. The staff were polite and friendly but twice tried to start clearing our table when we were still eating our main meal. I am afraid to say this is not a restaurant we will be returning to.

We had a lovely experience, the service was great , very polite and friendly. The food was great really tasty and brought to our table very quick. I find the prices on the high side because the food is good but not excellent to charge these prices. My only criticism is the tables are quite small and way too close to the other tables. It feels you’re sitting with the guys next to you..

A busy, noisy place with the table packed very close together.
We waited an hour after ordering for our starters to arrive.
When they did finally appear they were excellent, but trying to order another round of drinks to go with them was a challenge!
It then took about 10 minutes from start to finish for our main course dishes to all arrive at the table.
The staff seemed far more interested in filling their take away orders, judging by the number of bags appearing from the kitchen & they were clearly too busy to worry about polite, friendly service.
A disappointing experience where the above average food failed to make up for the appalling service.
We won’t go back, next time we will order a take away!

I have been coming to Good Earth, Mill Hill since I was young and it has always maintained that 'treat' status. Yes it is expensive but in my mind and that of my father's (who lives around the corner), it is worth it. We are warmly welcomed by the owner each time who is always pleased to see us, as we are him. I cannot speak highly enough of the excellent staff and the food is delicious. My father, myself and my son all come here for our individual family birthday dinners (I live in Wimbledon!). It was my son's 12th birthday recently and they made a real fuss, which was a lovely extra touch and tantamount to the family feel of this place and how much they value your custom.

The restaurant was buzzing and for good reason! Really delicious food served promptly with a good range of vegetarian options. We started with the vegetarian spring rolls which were delicious and then tried a couple of the 'mock chicken' dishes which were really lovely too. Super smiley staff and great atmosphere. Would definitely go back!
