We usually go to the good earth in esher , but left it too late to book for the night we wanted to go , so we thought we’d try Wandsworth. Absolutely fantastic food , and a better atmosphere than Esher. We’d definitely go back.

the Good Earth is a real treat. We went for my son’s birthday dinner. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. Our waiter really made my son feel special. It is expensive but I do think it is worth it. Our issue was the absolutely obnoxious family sitting right next to us who were so loud that it ruined the celebration. Seriously posh toffs who had no self awareness.. Next time I am going to do take away instead!

This is a very good Chinese Resturant and a high quality reputation for food and service. It is however very expensive and I felt the food quality was a little less excellent than in past.

Great meal to celebrate a good friend leaving the country. Food was outstanding. We agreed that the spare rib was the best we'd ever had in the UK - usually I only order it in the USA. Spicy prawns were delicious, and so too were the chicken and cashew nuts. We ordered the set menu for all 3 of us and were not disappointed with quality or quantity - there was more than we needed! Service was outstanding too - friendly, welcoming, good at explaining the dishes. We will definitely return

The food was delicious and the service excellent. They even went to the trouble of providing a surprise dessert as I'd mentioned it was my husband's birthday, which was very kind of them and was also a delicious dessert.

I've been to this Chinese resturant before, the food is good and moderately priced. The most impressive thing about the Good Earth Wandsworth common is the staff. To a man and woman they are warm helpful and committed to giving you good service. On two separate occasions they have given us free dessert. We go regularly and I recommend it to all our friends, good food GREAT staff.

A sweltering hot July day required care in the choice of evening dining, but The Good Earth was blissfully air-conditioned. We were having s birthday celebration and to make things easy we opted for the set dinner which covers a multiplicity of delights, but with portions to make it considerably more substantial than a tasting menu. The aromatic duck was superb, abundant and beautifully presented, as were the beef and vegetables cooked in a pot at the table. A surprise came at the end when some delicious apple and banana fritters, a candle and a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream was delivered to the strains of "Happy Birthday". What with that and the air-con we could have been in the USA rather than London, but the food was a good deal better than many prestigious establishments I have dined at there. The service. too, was excellent and attentive. The biggest downer is that it's hard to find a parking spot.

We had a wonderful evening at the Good Earth to celebrate my son's graduation. The food was just superb – so fresh and delicious, with quality ingredients beautifully prepared and presented. The service was perfect – friendly, efficient and helpful. We are so lucky to have this fabulous restaurant in the area, and are very much looking forward to our next visit!
