Blue Lake has become my new favourite Chinese takeaway in Horley. I have visited the restaurant only once but have ordered takeaways many times now and the food is brilliant. Always tasty, fresh and the delivery is very quickly.

I visited here for the buffet that they do. Never having been to a Chinese buffet before I expected the food to be out and you go and get what you wish. But no you order off the menu what you want for a set price . The food was really good and the prices were reasonable for Chinese. The... More

The interior decor of this restaurant leaves a lot to be desired, these days people want modern, neat and clean. This restaurant is old, the decor dates from the 70s, and the atmosphere is cold and dark. The food is ok, just, the children liked the crispy duck and the noodles, but for something a little bit more sophisticated, go... More

We visited here last Friday evening as a family of four. We had the all you can eat menu and thoroughly enjoyed everything we chose. We did think there were a lot of rules with this menu. But we chose wisely and there was no waste, however I'm sure lots of people probably try it on a bit and order... More

There was too much traffic to head home after our trip from Gatwick. So I decided to find a place close by to eat and came across this place. The food was great and the staff was so nice and accommodating, it's definitely worth a visit!

Searched TA in the vicinity for a Chinese meal whilst staying at the airport hotel. Whilst this had mixed reviews we decided to give it a try and were pleased that we did. On arrival, the restaurant is not much special with office style ceiling tiles sparsely decorated with Chinese paper lanterns. We were warmly met by the young serving... More

When we walked in I was a little put off by the appearance and decor of the restaurant. But don't let that put you off, the service was very good and the food was very good. Piping hot and very tasty. Will definitely go back again.

I went with a friend last Saturday evening we had not booked so we were lucky to get a table as the restaurant got busy very quickly. Very friendly service we were made to feel very welcome. We also had the buffet which is cooked to order very reasonable prices, and delicious food. There are not to many choices starter... More

We have always loved the buffet at the blue lake and decided to visit with friends and children. It's £20 a head for all you can eat which isn't exactly cheap but the food is good quality and fresh. I explained my children didn't want the buffet and would only eat a bit of plain rice or noodle but the... More
