Went as a large family. Very good service, the owner great you upon entry and keeps checking on you through out. The food is nice. But I always prefer fresh mushrooms over canned, so the chicken mushroom did not quite do it for me.The beef sizzler was quite yummy, so were the chicken wings. Nice restaurant, would recommend.

Yes, there is such a concept called Indian chinese! Its quite popular in India and Taste of China is the only authentic Indian Chinese that does a great job of this fusion in the whole of Kenya. Must try - Seafood soup (heavenly) and crab. Off the menu ask them for 'Fish in a foil'. Trust me, you'll be pleasantly... More

Nice menu, Great staff, friendly and always accommodating management. The best choice for Fusion Chinese in Nairobi. I have introduced many of my friends there and all of them enjoyed the great food. Try the Double Fried Pork. You can't go wrong

I thought food was extremely greasy. All our starters were deep fried. And main course the chicken was on the tough side. Prawns were soft. Tofu was good and so was the fried rice. Service and decor was great. Parking below is a mad house. But then if you live in Nairobi - you get use to it.

Excellent food and very good service. A good mix of non-veg and veggie food. The owner had a chat with us, nice guy. Nice views of Nairobi by night. Plenty of generous portions of food. You can choose regular or large portions. No need to bother with the large ones. I would recommend sharing rice between two people as there... More

Oily and spicy with very little flavour. No ambience as such to speak of. Good service. The place appears to be quite busy.

Was extremely disappointed with the food. Everything tasted like an Indian savory called pakora in some kind of chilli sauce. The place was busy though so I guess they have their fans. Wasn't for me though.

I've been here twice, along with other people. The food they serve is more like modified Chinese food as it is in many Chinese restaurants. The food is usually quite oily and spicier than it needs to be (not that I don't like spicy but not how its supposed to be). I'm very choosy with Chinese restaurants as I've experience... More
