If you love Chinese food, this is a great stop. In the heart of Nairobi. Great for a business lunch alone or with a group of up to 10.

i think the management needs to do something about the way they charge for their dishes. This is the only warning I will give potential clients. I had never eaten Chinese food before but I loved the food and the portions were definitely value for money. The service was great, the waiter took time to explain the meals to me... More

Typical overseas Chinese restaurant, and evidently owned/cooking from a mainland China background rather than Hong Kong. Food was OK, but nothing special. Also, it was a shame to see shark fin soup on the menu, but not actually surprised. As for the cost, as with the only other Chinese restaurant that I've tried in Nairobi, the prices in the menu...

I have no idea why this was highly reviewed online, but we would avoid at all cost. bad food, empty atmosphere, terrible service. We were charged for corked wine despite explaining the wine was off and could not be touched.

Except the waiters/Waitresses, everything is Chinese (Not fake, I swear). Even the TV channels show Chinese programs (you kidding me!!). But on a serious note, the food is seriously good (I have only eaten the Halal food, so cant comment on Pork and other stuff).

Whenever I travel and I do get a little burned out on the local fare sometimes, I seek out ethnic food and most often, it is Chinese food that fits the bill. And the Panda fits those cravings to a T with excellent food in a most relaxed and comforting setting. The layout of the restaurant is so nice with... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Nairobi; all time favourite! Great service,and even more, awesome food and drinks. My wife and i had our engagement dinner here (60+ guests) and the management pulled all stops to make the day memorable for all! We always visit this restaurant even on a whim!
