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. We welcome families and children of all ages and have a great value set lunches.

*** From Monday 21th March 2022 our restaurant will be closed every Monday until further notice. But you can still make reservations for the rest of the days and enjoy yourself at our restaurant.

    High quality Chinese food. Not your average take away style. Good quality Chinese cuisine. Wife had Kung Po prawns which were delicious. Daughter Beef in XO sauce I had Hunan Lamb. All very good. One slight gripe is I ordered Chinese brocoli in garlic and ginger and although very tasty, it was an eye watering £13. I think they need to re-evaluate there side dish prices. I would go back and also recommend this restaurant though. It has been around for years and always gets good reviews.

    The Good Earth in Esher is the easily one of the best Chinese restaurants I have been to, including those in China. The food is exceptional (especially the incredible Wasabi Beef), the service was very friendly, in fact charming, they were extremely attentive and ensured that all requests were happily performed. In short, an amazing restaurant with superb food and staff! I highly recommend everyone to visit. We will certainly be there again as soon as possible.

    Food in Good Earth never disappoints. The first portion of fried noodles with bean sprouts seemed much smaller than the second one. We were seated by the bar and the till near the entrance and I must say that this let the whole experience down. We don’t often eat out and it would have been nice to be seated near the other guests.

    The food was lovely, but the service was not great, there was a long gap from the first person getting there food to the last also there must have been some food on my chair from a previous diner, because I left there with some thing stuck under my trousers.so for the price of the food I would expect better.

    Superb service and excellent food. We chose their set menu and we enjoyed every single dish served to us. It was like a Chinese tasting menu. We stayed there longer than anticipated but the staff never made us feel that we had to leave. We are lucky to have a restaurant like this nearby.

    Good Earth is our go to for a special occasion family meal, this time a 'big number' birthday. The service as always was impeccable, the relaxed formality makes for such an enjoyable time. The prices reflect the quality of the food you get. Every dish is well made and presented and there is never any waste at our table.
