A Great place to escape to near the centre of town. Tasty food, decent quick service and a very pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Prices are on the higher side but the portions are also very big. Food is pretty tasty across the board. Good ours of business with the place being open all afternoon allowing for a late lunch without any... More

We ate lunch here recently. The food was good, but quite expensive. For lunch for 2 people we ordered 3 entrees with rice and paid 3800 KSH. I'm not sure if we would go again, but it was a good experience nevertheless.

It is on the first floor of an office building so the toilets are shared and they are not really immaculate. The restaurant does have the Chinese ambiance and it is pleasant to sit inside (no outdoor sitting). However, since we were the only guests for most of the time we were there, it was spooky occasionally. No music, no... More

I have always liked the food at China plate but the prices have gone so high. One dish was over 20 dollars. The waiters are old and a bit slow. I think they have now priced themselves to a point where I will look elsewhere

This may be because I have eaten some of the best Chinese food in Vancouver,BC and tried to draw a comparison.The rice under cooked and spicy beef just okay.The staff were attentive and service excellent don't think this is enough for me to go...

Chinese food is the most adaptable in the world. So looking for Authentic Chinese food? China maybe? I can't vouch for the authenticity of the Chinese food here. But who cares, Good food is good food. This place for what it is, it be Indian-Chinese, Hakka Chinese whatshamacallit, it is fa-bu-lous. The staff is outstanding and no matter what your... More

Apart from the above mentioned, some of the other food are quite lovely. The lobster was excellent too. We order the roasted chicken with poussin chips when we go as a big family and are never disappointed. The manager Shamir is doing a fantastic job. Range of chilli sauces are delicious and of course spicy!

Since my last visit, both the food and service have improved. The dishes came quickly and piping hot and the portions were so large we could not finish it all. The service was attentive and helpful. The decor is nice and good atmosphere I would recommend this place.
