“Bangkok Chinese Restaurant at the Yaya Centre Food Loft”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

The food is generally very good there. I have eaten there severally but the last time I did it was a take away and had asked for it to be made medium spicy and when I got home was disappointed to find they had not put any spice at all. Otherwise they are generally good although expensive in my opinion.

“Ya Ya!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Good medium size shopping centre that the tourist is probably going to feel "at home" in. Good supermarket and a really great bookshop. Avoid the markets on Sunday they are a tourist rip off! or be sure to be ready for the aggressive bartering process - not exactly a relaxing experience! Has a international bank and currency exchange shop - so it accomodates many needs of the traveller.

“A nice, medium-sized urban shopping center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

The Yaya Center has many shops with a wide variety of merchandise plus a bank (Standard Chartered), cell-phone center, salon, restaurants, clothing, a very good bookstore, etc. It's a little hard to navigate since the shops are on 5 different levels (there are escalators to go up, stairs to come down). It would be handy if they posted maps of each level around the center so you could more easily find the shop you want.

“Nice, a little bit smaller shopping center in Nairobi”

Good collection of speciality shops and services, some of them You cannot find anywhere else. Not so busy as some of the bigger ones, so the experience might be a bit more relaxing :)

“Chinese Restaurant at Ya Ya Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I certainly have enjoyed eating here twice. The food and service are excellent, but it is a little pricey for what it has to offer. I particularly love the dim sum. It is wonderfully located. I can't complain about the food.
