The restaurant was clean. The staff was fantastic at keeping the table clear, especially as there was lots of us. The food was lovely with plenty of choice.

A unique, themed restaurant inside the Chessington Azteca Hotel, Temple Restaurant & Bar is an interactive buffet dining experience for the whole family. Stone carvings and jungle-like décor throughout the restaurant give it a real whimsical feel, and there is al fresco seating.

The Temple Restaurant & Bar menu is packed with a great variety of recipes, with something to please every taste. Classic pasta dishes include spaghetti bolognaise, there is tender rotisserie chicken, as well as roast beef, and grill items like gammon steak.

Fun additions for dessert at Temple Restaurant & Bar Chessington include the self-serve ice cream machines, with a great selection of toppings. There is also fresh fruit, and a wide variety of drinks from the bar, including beers, wines and spirits for the adults.

A fun spin on family dining, Temple Restaurant & Bar is a 6-minute drive from Chessington South Rail Station.

    Poor food choice. Not hot - very expensive for the quality provided. Ice cream machine kept breaking down

    Good choice of foods for everyone it's never particularly hot but then for a buffet style it never is. It was busy but there was plenty and the staff were friendly and accommodating it was perfectly adequate.

    Ice Cream machine broken again as it had been last three visits

    Good food, shame about the power cut.
    Nice choice of food, was all very tasty better than I thought it might be. Not cheap though. There was a power cut across the hotel, but communications were poor, no one came round to check how we were. Also restaurant was a bit dingy, hard to see food, I know it was the theme but we weren't given a choice. Ice cream factory wasn't working so scoop ice cream was out not quite the same.

    Very disappointing. I checked out the menus on your website and although it does state it is a Sample Menu, I found it very different. The puddings were cheap imitations. My daughter was looking forward to her chocolate brownie as she is always talking about the one she had when we last visited the Safari hotel. the item you advertised in the restaurant was most definitely not a chocolate brownie, at best it would be described as a chocolate mousse. Unfortunately the restaurant fell far short of what is described on the website. It wasn't that the food was bad, it just wasn't what we expected and for what we had was very expensive. You need to advertise what you are providing correctly. I think it's a really good idea for families as there is something for everyone. Had I known that the standard of food was different to that in the Zafari, I would have booked there instead.

    Loved the restaurant experience, the kids totally enjoyed it too, lots of different food to choose from, desserts were a hit!!

    Okay. Kids dishes disappointing. Adults okay, prefer to serve myself, but lots given to you. Couldn't even make my own salad

    We ate here ( party of 7) for lunch, evening meal and breakfast as we were so pleased with the food, the service and the friendliness of the staff. It was my granddaughter's 4th birthday and they did their best to make it special for her; The food quality was excellent (succulent ribs to die for, well cooked veg; plenty of choices to suit everyone in a mixed party). We were not rushed at all and were made to feel very welcome.

    The restaurant is in a lovely setting overlooking the safari area of the zoo. The hotel has the atmosphere of a safari lodge. Our restaurant was themed as a jungle temple ruins. The food was buffet style and there was a good selection to satisfy all the adults and children with an age range of 4 to 57. We particularly liked the salmon and tofu stir fry. The freshly made salad bar was also great as well as the ice cream and marshmallows which the children loved. The staff were all really welcoming and friendly and the experience overall was great fun.
