“THE WORST EXPERIENCE IN ANY RESTAURANT EVER!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

I went on a Friday for a late lunch with my friend. We got there and ordered at 2:40pm. Nobody told us that the kitchen (and restaurant) closes at 3pm. Our food came at 3:05 pm and in 5 minutes, the boss of the restaurant (this other asian indian lady) came and asked us to leave as she had to go pick her son from school. we were SHOCKED!!! We requested her to let us be coz we had just got there, but she could not be botheres and only apologised but stood her ground. She said she sent the manager off at 3pm. That was disgusting. That is when our food came. We didnt have time to enjoy our food and had to get it packed. We kept telling her we were so upset as her waiters had not told us about the time Kitchen closes and it was her staffs fault. She was not bothered and had an "I DONT CARE" attitude since she thought the apology was good enough. To make it worse, she only gave us 10% discount to "make-up" for the staffs incompetent behaviour....she really did not care. The food was good but the atmosphere and all sux in there....Absolutely NOT worth it!!!

Mainly had takeaways from here and the management was so helpful in accommodating our child's special dietary requirements.

Every dish we ordered was delicious!

“Excellent Chinese Food (Indian Style)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Ok, lets admit that Chinese restaurants owned by Indians do not serve authentic Chinese food and with Chinese food I mean dogs, snakes, eels etc (with due respect). However this place is one of the best chinese cuisine restaurants that serve the best Indian style Chinese.

“Amazing Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

The food at Taste of China is amazing...the owners are excellent and always make sure the customers get good service....also the views from the balcony in the restaurant are amazing...and the decor inside must be 1 of the best decors from all the chinese restaurants in Nairobi.
