This is the most pocket friendly Chinese restaurant I have been to in Nairobi. The location is in a tight corner and one may miss it but the bright red hangings make it easy to spot. Children friendly with a lot of play toys around. They seem to be in need of a few more waiters as they seemed overwhelmed.... More

This place has excellent Chinese food try their sweet and sour fish and chicken noodles. I love the way the owner checks up on everyone and they have plenty of space. There's limited parking inside however they have secure parking outside.

"For you" is a friendly Chinese restautant of permanent good quality. 25 visits without a single deception. Great garden. Plenty of space. Very friendly waiters. A friendly lady boss that has an eye on everything. The kids adore it because they are specially taken care of. It is the place of all the birthday dinners.

We patronise For You as a family because they have good Chinese food and the place is great for family. The service is good too with private dining areas on request. You also don't need a reservation. The most pocket friendly chinese restaurant in Nairobi.

We patronised this restaurant for a family dinner. The food was great. The owner welcomes every guest and remarkably remembers their names. I found that really commendable. Our waiter was very polite and helpful. He helped recommend what dishes to try & I must say his choice was very good. The chicken& cashew nut especially spoke to me. The price... More

Like others have said, For You is good value! All the pluses: Food portions were generous, tasty and prices were low. Service was prompt and courteous. The bill was accurate and payment was easy. We enjoyed the private room as we were a party of 12. Complementary ice cream at the end is a bonus!

For You Restaurant has both a scenic garden view and cozy internal sitting. The place is always busy and this is not surprising because of 4 factors; 1. Very reasonable pricing 2. Very decent portions for all meals 3. Personalized Attention provided by the owners on every table 4. Freshness of the food The outdoor area has a decent playground... More

Great restaurant, always busy, lots of different rooms so good for group bookings/business meals, plus a big outdoor area which is nice on a warm evening. Food is great value and massive portions - don't over order! Very popular locally, best to book on weekends.
