We have eaten here many times over the last few years and always enjoyed the food and the service. Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the service on our most recent visit. We had booked a table for 11 people for my wife's birthday. Again we have eaten here in large groups before and had very good service but this... More

Have had many many takeaways and sit ins from Bon East over the past 6+ years and always been a huge fan. Very expensive but was always worth it. But the last 2 takeaways have been very disappointing. Cheap meat, very oily. Chicken Noodles dish was inedible. Won't be using again

I have eaten at this restaurant several times before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I therefore wanted my friends from the USA to experience a excellent quality Chinese meal. That did not happen. We waited a long time before we were asked about drinks or supplied menus. An even longer wait for the drinks to arrive. We ordered the mixed... More

Eaten here a couple of times now and every time the staff have been friendly and the food has been very good. Around the area I haven't eaten better Chinese food and would recommend to anyone looking to eat Chinese in and around Farnham. Very good.

Bon East was highly recommended by a couple of people but unfortunately served the fairly mediocre Cantonese food found in many places outside the cities in the UK. There was no MSG (which is good) but there was also little seasoning of the food. Dishes were in general pretty greasy. The buffet was pretty poor value given the quality of... More

The food was OK but the pressure on ordering more drinks was excessive. One bottle of ordinary Prosecco £25.50 - 2 small glasses of house wine £7 and so on! Service Charge of £15.50 for 4 people left a very sour taste in our mounths . Will definitely not return! Rip off!

We went with a party of 19 to celebrate a birthday together; the tables were beautifully laid; the food served was really delicious. It was a great evening all round.

We had a lovely meal here however were very disappointed when we received the bill. A bottle of beer - not even a pint is £3.50 and we were also hit with a very excessive £30 service charge which is a complete joke! Food was very nice and fresh and the service was quick but when bringing out the food... More
