Our server was excellent despite the mad rush on Sunday.Food was good,kids play area fun and engaging for younger children.Getting out of the parking lot was no fun as some patrons double park and security attendant was over whelmed.

The restaurant is one of my favorites in Nairobi because their food is organic, it is well cooked, it is real food and not junk. Their customer service is also great. Get in there, choose your table, and choose your meal on the menu and wait a little bit. My only issue with them is that after the payments they... More

The one near Valley Arcade is really spacious and the ambience is good. However, the food is flat and not really tasty as it used to be.

We visited the one near Valley Arcade yesterday for lunch & our lunch wasn't as inspiring as For You used to be. It's still a great place for families & the kids in our group had a lovely time at the play area. However the service was a bit slow; at lunch hour the place fills up quite fast. Food... More

Nothing packs a punch. The chilli beef has never been near a chilli but it does come with a suspicious luminescent orange sauce. This place used to be decent but all the Chinese chefs seem to have left the kitchen. Avoid if you like Chinese food.

I have been a regular customer at For You Chinese for many years. And I often take my friends there too. This year on Valenties day The Conquerors band from Nairobi made it extra special.

Ok - i've seen a slight notable decline at quality of food at For You. When it 1st started, the food was exceptional. As the place became more popular with patrons, they expanded the dining area & opened another outlet just down the road. Unfortunately, the food has turned out to cater for masses, almost "take-out" quality. I wish they... More

This was my second visit. The restaurant is located at Valley Arcade along Gitanga road. Parking is limited and the restaurant packed over lunch hour 12.30-3 pm especially on weekends so one might miss sitting space (happened to me once) I loved the food portions. ideal for two people sharing the meals. In a bigger group you get to sample... More
