“Good Food, Large Portions, Relaxing Atmoshpere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Who cares about class, advertising or branding when this place has exactly what a restaurant is supposed to have: LARGE PORTIONS OF GREAT FOOD!

Not exactly "classy" but great for the family.

The food was amazingly good. I could tell that the cook tried her best to make the food the best with attention to detail, and we were asked if we found everything okay. The pricing is one of the best you can find for value for money. If you want a relaxed time out with your family or a group of friends, go to For You.

“Chinese food tastes better than what you get here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I love Chinese food and for someone who grew up with it, the food you get here is an underestimation of Chinese food. It is so difficult to find a really good Asian resto across Africa and I was very happy when a colleague brought me to this place during my recent visit to Nairobi. I had sweet and sour pork, lemon chicken, special rice (yang chow fried rice) and it was disappointing..

Dessert is always free but you have to ask for the ice cream or they would not offer it to you.

The service is very good though.. The staff are very attentive and respond to consumers' needs efficiently.

The food is quite cheap. The portions are huge and are generally good for sharing.

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.
