I have been to China so I know what good Chinese cuisine is, sadly I would not say this is. The food was not of the quality I was expecting, the only dish slightly like a good Chinese was the sesame chicken, but this was a starter... I would not recommend going here, it is near the centre of twin... More

Having used the China Plate on a number of occasions I can not recommend it highly enough. The owner is very friendly and helpful the staff are efficient and serve you with a welcoming smile. The food is tasty and can be as mild or spicy as you like. Sea food dishes are particularly good in my opinion. Having large... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for more years than I care to remember. Most of the time it has been great. Tasty (very) large portions, Fine service, friendly and accommodating management, Great for a family lunch and a business meal anytime. Useful to know that they don't close between lunch and dinner so perfect for a late business lunch.... More

It is rare I write a bad review but I feel that I was so ripped off that others need to be aware. My food was good and I would return to eat again if it was based solely on food quality. However, paying £40+ for a meal for one (including a couple of soft drinks) is excessive; I fear... More

Generous portions of well prepared and very tasty food made for a very good dining experience. Highly recommend the foil wrapped prawn appetizer dish. Toffee Banana was also excellent dessert. This is the best Chinese food we have had in Nairobi. Surprised it was as quiet on a Saturday night, so hope people read this and frequent the restaurant.

My family and I have been die hard fans of China Plate for years, more so when they had their Westlands outlet. We've continued patronising them despite their current location at the Chancery being a little out of our way and inconvenient. CP has always had superb grilled chicken and this was their hallmark at the Westlands branch, their masala... More

A Great place to escape to near the centre of town. Tasty food, decent quick service and a very pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Prices are on the higher side but the portions are also very big. Food is pretty tasty across the board. Good ours of business with the place being open all afternoon allowing for a late lunch without any... More
