“Great classic Chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

A Nairobi favorite. China Plate is in a slightly strange location, on the second floor of an office block, but once inside, all the traditional features of a good Chinese are in evidence. Fantastic crispy aromatic duck, and all the other good, familiar Chinese dishes.

“Different from the regular Chinese fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

Nice restaurant within walking distance of my hotel. Good ambience. The staff were very friendly, and service was quick & efficient. The food was very tasty and slightly different from the routine Chinese dishes you get in most Asian & African "Chinese" restaurants. Will definitely visit again if I am in that area.

“Not Bad for Africa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

We had a quick lunch here and went to the China Plate because of the advice from our local travel agent.

Good service and good food for being in Africa. Not really authentic but acceptable like many Chinese restaurants found outside of China or Asia. Location was nice and security was very good as the restaurant is situated on the first floor of a gated building.
