“Great Chinese Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Very friendly owner and staff, good indoor and outdoor seating, child-friendly with lots of things for chldren to play with and good food that comes quickly. Can get busy at weekends so get there before the lunch time rush or book in advance.

“Good food for value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A nice small restaurant right on the road. Great food at a good price. Falls short on parking space especially lunch hours on weekdays and weekends! Nice place to hang out with younger kids though not alot of variety for them to play with. Boring for teenagers! Waiters sometimes a little overwhelmed but remain courteous! The spring rolls and fish fingers here are worth a visit.

“An excellent Chinese restaurant in Nairobi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Friends took us to this restaurant because it was their favourite and I have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed my meal there! We chose to sit in the outside eating area because it was a nice evening and enjoyed the extra privacy this gave us to be able to talk together.

I ordered the sliced beef with black bean sauce and it was all I hoped it would be, extremely tasty with a bit of a spicy bite. Our friend tried a bite and so liked it better than his own dish that he swore he would order that instead next time!

Unfortunately, when it came time to settle the bill, our friends' credit card would not work and they absolutely refused to let us use ours to pay for the meal, even though they were also short of cash. Fortunately, they were well-known patrons of the restaurant and the owner readily extended them credit to be paid later. Needless to say, I was impressed.

Food is tasty, if you like it hot they can do it. Service is cool, prices are very cool, one of the best, simple place to chill out in a garden eating chinese food. Highly recommended
