“A Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We patronised this restaurant for a family dinner. The food was great. The owner welcomes every guest and remarkably remembers their names. I found that really commendable.
Our waiter was very polite and helpful. He helped recommend what dishes to try & I must say his choice was very good. The chicken& cashew nut especially spoke to me.
The price is very fair in comparison to some oriental establishments in Nairobi.
Upon leaving, the guests are given little gifts and sweets, which the children especially love.
All on all, the restaurant is worth a visit.

“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Like others have said, For You is good value!

All the pluses:
Food portions were generous, tasty and prices were low.
Service was prompt and courteous.
The bill was accurate and payment was easy.

We enjoyed the private room as we were a party of 12. Complementary ice cream at the end is a bonus!

“good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

the food is enjoyable and the best part is your wallet will not cringe when the bill comes. we were a party of 4 pax and we ate 2 of everything(starters n main dishes) and had some left overs. will definitely go back when in the area.
now the only negative thing is that its a kid friendly place,which isn't a bad thing unless when dealing with parents that cannot control their hyperactive kids who think that running around in the restaurant screaming is a norm!!!!be ready for that.on that day the parents of the kids were busy seating and eating while the kids decided to see who can shout the loudest.worst part is we were seated inside not outside.

“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.
