    Food is good but expensive. Service not so good. No towels offered before food ( unlike other tables. Told that it was a birthday when booked but unlike other tables nothing happened or was offered. Felt not looked after.

    We were delighted with our meal out at The Good Earth Esher. The food was lovely, the atmosphere was buzzing but not intrusive and the service was impeccable - can’t recommend it highly enough. We will definitely be returning soon.

    The rest of my party food was very good. I'm gluten free - I was given the list of allergens and found that every single main dish had gluten in it. For such an expensive restaurant, this is very shocking. The waiter said nothing could be altered on the menu. I ended up speaking to the manager who said the only thing they could make me was chicken stir fry with ginger and onion. They refused to make any other dish. We sat down at 2pm and they then informed us that the kitchen was shutting at 3pm. Service was very rushed.

    I have been a Good Earth regular since the early 80s, in Knightsbridge. On the downside no scallops or seabass available, both family favourites. Also the hot and sour soup was neither hot nor sour, and pale not usual dark colour. The upside was all the rest was great as per usual. With no sea bass we tried a new dish, fish in clay pot, which is now a new favourite. Staff friendly as usual.
