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.

    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.

    Excellent choice of food. Kids love buffet style where they can go and choose their own food

    Really enjoyed the Iights and sound show. Pleasant surprise. Was a little disappointed that some of the menu items were not available on the night. But, that said, what rd was on offer was good. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    We ate as a family at this restaurant one Saturday as part of a trip to Chessington World of Adventures. Unfortunately the choice of food was very limited; chicken, salmon, sausages, beefburgers, salad/veg, chips, baked potato, macaroni cheese, ice-cream and cold drinks. Not great, considering the price of about £13 per adult and £8 per child. I expected better :(

    I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Booking was easy and straight forward, food was great varied from a roast dinner, salad bar, meatballs spaghetti curry rice. Puddings were great also.

    Having been held up Quing for a ride we arrived 15 minutes late we tried to call but no answer the few times we tried. However they got us a table straight away and it wasn't a problem
    We found the restaurant to have limited food choices and we didn't eat any meat as the chicken, sausages and ribs looked very pink and under cooked and we wasn't going to take a chance
    We informed someone but he never came back to us
    By time we went to get pudding the ice cream had been packed away this was 40 minutes after entering the restaurant so not long with 3 children to eat
    They turned the ice cream machine back on but we had to wait ages for the bowls. All in all very disappointing would never eat there again
