I used to live in the locality called Westlands in the eighties when there was a dearth of good eateries. The arrival of Taste Of China has increased the variety and quality of restaurants and turned Westlands into a foodie hub. The service was prompt and efficient. The menu was extensive and we enthusiastically over ordered not realizing that the... More

Tastes of China is an Indo-Chinese restaurant situated in VIP Plaza Westlands, Nairobi. The irony is that the restaurant is situated on the 6th floor of a hotel owned by Chinese. The restaurant occupies the whole 6th floor and is divided into separate dining areas. I preferred the outdoor balcony area from which the Nairobi skyline view was terrific. Also... More

This place so over rated by its mainly Indian clientele. The owner is a nice guy and everybody wants a specialised version of any dish which is on the menu. The end result is All the dishes have same sauce but chili hot. I just agree to go there to keep company.

The food is probably the best any chinese restaurant serves in Nairobi. Brisk service and good portions at fair price.. Drinks prices a little high. Lovely views from the balcony. Would visit TOC anytime for a good meal.

A bunch of us friends went to Taste of China (or ToC as we now call it) for dinner and we were not at all disappointed. The food was indo-chinese and full of rich flavours. Another friend had recommended that we should order the Ginger Crab in advance and allow the restaurant at least an hour to serve it. The... More

We visited the establishment on 23rd April. It's on a the whole Top floor and they have concierge to direct you to your sit. The decor is good and the washrooms are clean. They have both in and outside sitting as well. We had sweet and sour pork,schezwan mutton, vegetable fried rice and prawns. The indo-chinese food was good. Our... More

Try to book a place on the balcony that overlooks Nairobi City, views are awesome especially at night. Dress warm as can be a little breezy. Service and food is excellent as this is a family run restaurant with the owners keeping a good eye on both the back of house and restaurant. They don't come any better then this.....keep... More
