“Pocket Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

This is the most pocket friendly Chinese restaurant I have been to in Nairobi. The location is in a tight corner and one may miss it but the bright red hangings make it easy to spot.

Children friendly with a lot of play toys around.

They seem to be in need of a few more waiters as they seemed overwhelmed. The service did not diminish however.

The rations are smaller than other Chinese restaurants in town. Perhaps the price difference manifests itself thus. Their sweet and sour pork is really nice. I didn't find the prawns good though

“Good food fit for the pocket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

This place has excellent Chinese food try their sweet and sour fish and chicken noodles. I love the way the owner checks up on everyone and they have plenty of space. There's limited parking inside however they have secure parking outside.

“Families most popular Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

"For you" is a friendly Chinese restautant of permanent good quality. 25 visits without a single deception.
Great garden. Plenty of space. Very friendly waiters. A friendly lady boss that has an eye on everything. The kids adore it because they are specially taken care of. It is the place of all the birthday dinners.

“Good food, good service, great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We patronise For You as a family because they have good Chinese food and the place is great for family. The service is good too with private dining areas on request. You also don't need a reservation. The most pocket friendly chinese restaurant in Nairobi.

“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.
