Indianised Chinese

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... read 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

Food and service was brilliant... Real value for money. Starters were amazing! Had the pork ribs. Dare I say better than the main course.

This is THE best Chinese food that I have ever tasted! The service was top notch and the owners were very friendly. I could not fault this restaurant in any way - surely the blueprint for all Chinese restaurants! I could not recommend this restaurant highly enough even if I tried. From Neil & Bhavik

Had dinner here with friends. We were able to reserve a secluded section, which was nice. The food was fantastic and the service prompt and friendly. Definitely worth visiting again!

Visited the restaurant on a recommendation from a friend when I travelled to Nairobi and it lived up to the expectations. The decor is wonderful, with the two dragons the highlight as well as the uniquely designed bar. We ordered some ribs, spring rolls and honey chilli chicken to start. The food came out in a reasonable time, and although... More

I ordered food from here and it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. It wasn't bad, but I did not enjoy!

The place sets a good mood and tone, the flavor may not be truly Chinese but still tastes okay, and the service was not as customer friendly or quick as expected. I requested for a suggestion form but never saw it, i suppose the staff were on a go slow of some kind. I took a take away and upon... More

As with most Chinese restaurants in Nairobi, this is certainly not authentic. It's very much an Indo-Chinese fusion that caters for the local populace, mostly Kenyan-Indians. It's actually located within the Nanchang Hotel, a Chinese one, which would make you think there might be one or two there... Aside from myself on a Sunday lunch service, I was all alone.... More

One of my biggest problems in Nairobi has been to find a Chinese restaurant that offers authentic Chinese food, and not "Indo-Chinese" which most of the "Chinese" restaurants in Nairobi seem to serve (my long-held opinion being that Indo-Chinese food is a fusion that does not work on any level). When we arrived at Taste of China, we asked specifically... More
