Hidden in the picturesque village of Capel - just a couple of miles from Dorking - is one of Surrey's true gastronomic secrets. Little Penang, based in the Surrey Hills Hotel, offers diners an authentic taste of Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. So, if you want to experience the exotic flavours of Southeast Asia, but can't afford the hefty plane fare, Little Penang is perfect.

The friendly staff are on hand to talk you through the extensive and varied menu, helping you to select a mouth-watering array of dishes - nothing is too much trouble for them, and they take great delight in recommending their favourite dishes. A particular favourite of mine, and a dish I plan to return for as soon as possible, is the sizzle ayam - chicken stir-fried in ginger, spring onions and herbs, served on a sizzling hot plate. For those who prefer things a little spicier however, why not try the prawn sambal udang in spicy sambal sauce - it will not disappoint. The delectable range of seafood on offer will transport you to some of Asia's most beautiful beaches. The baby squid is beautifully seasoned, while a delicious peanut and oyster sauce accompanies a dish of beautifully prepared Indonesian vegetables. Set menus are available, including a fantastic vegetarian menu that would tempt even self-confessed carnivores, and there's a great takeaway service. The comprehensive wine list offers a wide selection of bottles, and there are also a number of traditional Asian beers available. For those who can muster up the appetite for dessert (and I urge you to find room) there's a superb array of frozen desserts and fruit ice creams on offer.

Little Penang really is worth a drive out of town. Whether you're looking to throw a party, hold an unusual corporate event or perhaps just enjoy a relaxing evening with friends, this place has a great deal to offer. With adventurous cuisine as well as more traditional fare, Little Penang has all bases covered, with a children's menu also available on request.
