For over 30 years we have strived to set the standard for Chinese food in London and we pride ourselves on building a reputation for exceptional food and service. The Good Earth reflects the journey Chinese food has taken in London. From traditional aromatic duck and dry shredded beef to contemporary dishes unique to us such as Golden Sands Dover Sole and Wasabi Prawns. Our new Wandsworth Common restaurant is designed with a truly exciting art deco interior with a contemporary twist.We welcome families and children of all ages and have great value set lunches.

The decor is good and the staff are friendly and service very good and not intrusive. The food was fresh, tasty and nicely presented but main courses are quite pricey. However, the one MAJOR problem was that we were virtually sitting on the lap of the people next to us and could just about get through the gap between the tables to sit down, I wish now I had taken a photo !!!! I have never been so cramped in a restaurant and it really really spoils the dining experience. Am I the only one that has noticed this...... Would only go back if we could sit on one of the large tables opposite. Ridiculous and counter productive as spoils what is a very nice restaurant in every other way.

Having visited with my family several times it seems the standard of the food has dropped. My pancake was raw and afterwards I felt quite ill. The duck was pretty tasteless and the vegetable spring rolls tasted stale, too much pastry and not enough filling. The fillet steak clay pot (which we have had before) was just that - few strips steak stirred around in the pot, no vegetables so boring and again, tasteless.

We asked to be moved as the table next to us was pretty rowdy - not the restaurant's fault - and they moved us quickly as despite being Chinese New Year it wasn't busy. As it was my daughter's birthday (which was why I asked to be moved to a quieter table) they brought banana toffee/ice cream at the end of the meal but to be honest we were over it by then.

Nice food and decent portion sizes, not too big or too little. A bit pricey for what it was so will visit again but maybe special occasions only.

Absolutely delighted, we frequently visit their Esher restaurant so this was our first time here. The ambience was perfect, food was exquisite, service was great and prices reasonable. It is now our very favourite and will be returning soon.

We always have a lovely meal at the Good Earth. It's not the cheapest option but the service is excellent and the food is very high quality. A lovely birthday treat. The clay pot beef is one of our favourite dishes, and is cooked at the table. The staff are very friendly to all of us, especially our children. Highly recommended.
