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

There are two chinese restaurants in this building the other one being the one you should have been directed to for an authentic experience. We are an "Indo-Chinese" restaurant as you say. we have never Marketed ourselves as an Authentic Restaurant.... More

My first experience with Taste of China was horrible. I visited there without an appointment and was literally asked to leave because they would not serve us. I asked if I could wait for a free table and was denied and told to make an appointment the next time i came. A friend of mine insisted that we visit there... More

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
