“All Round Good Experience & Good Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

For You Restaurant has both a scenic garden view and cozy internal sitting. The place is always busy and this is not surprising because of 4 factors;
1. Very reasonable pricing
2. Very decent portions for all meals
3. Personalized Attention provided by the owners on every table
4. Freshness of the food
The outdoor area has a decent playground for the kids so for a family day out, your kids can have a good time too.
Their service is very decent and the fact that the owners come round checking on you if everything is in order adds a personalized touch to the whole experience. They are very unique in that once you pay your bill, they give you some odd gifts (last time we got an LED torch and some friends got some unique keychains) as their way of saying thank you.

Anyone looking to have a good chinese meal - then For you fits the bill perfectly.It is prepared exactly how chinese food should be - without over spicing the foods.

My recommended must tries:

Chilly cashewnuts
Crispy spring rolls
Pork Dumpling
Veg/Chicken Fried Rice
Duck

“Enormous portions of good value food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Great restaurant, always busy, lots of different rooms so good for group bookings/business meals, plus a big outdoor area which is nice on a warm evening. Food is great value and massive portions - don't over order! Very popular locally, best to book on weekends.

“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.
