Dinner

Always good food in great portions. Good value. the ambiance is lovely, eating on the terrace at night makes it special with amazing views of the city.

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

Dear Gelnairobi Thank You for your feedback. I apologise for the wrong guidance you were given at the gate. 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

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
