A great evening with lovely food and generous portions. We had Vegetable Spring Rolls, Egg Fried Rice, Sizzling Chicken, Stir-fried Vegetables and Pancakes with Dates and Ice-cream. All the dishes were to our complete satisfaction, both quality- and quantity-wise. In particular, the chicken and... read more

All the dishes were to our complete satisfaction, both quality- and quantity-wise. In particular, the chicken and the vegetables were to die for, prepared to perfection. The pancakes tasted rather like samosa wrappings,... More

Great visit over lunch or for a casual dinner. Food is delicious and you get a lot of it. My favourite is their sweet and sour chicken, but they have several delicious meals. Service is good and the terrace has awesome view over Parklands. Worth a try!

My wife and I love to stop in here for a quick bite when we are in the westlands area. Its Chinese with an Indian twist and they nail it!!! A bit on the pricey side for Nairobi, but worth the stop. Enjoy

Visited the restaurant a week or so ago and was very impressed. Service was excellent and the quality of the food was high. The quantity of food we got for each dish was very generous compared to similar restaurants! One of the best Chinese restaurants in Nairobi. We're already planning our next visit back there.

Hot and sour soup - no MSG - hurrah! Rice - done properly. Grains not stuck together. Sweet and sour pork - not too sweet. Well balanced. My colleagues shredded beef was great. House wines very good. Indian owner came and chatted to us. Obviously hands on, keeping the place up to a high standard. Will be back for more... More

The food is extremely good here and they accommodate for dietary restrictions, as long as the food is preordered. However, sometimes, food takes slightly long to come, but it is always worth it! The owner gives personal service to all and makes your experience fantastic. Well done

This it's my 3rd visit to the restaurant. 1st visit, asked why he named it as Taste of Chine - because he used to frequent Chinese restaurant with same name in Harrow, London. The one in Harrow has excellent food. The one in Nairobi is also excellent except that most of the clients are Indians who for some reason always... More

My family and I love going to this restaurant because of the great value you get. Even the Regular sized dishes are very generous. Good food, good service, attentive and friendly waiters, fabulous view from the terrace (we always get a table there!). They also deliver and have a great website where you can order from. Of course we are... More
