“Authentic Chinese Taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Panda is probably one of the few chinese restaurants that I love to eat at. Whether a family meal, business or just with friends, i find that the taste of the food is constant and you dont have to necessarily stick to the menu. Run by a family from Shanghai they bring the true taste of china to your table.

“Good authentic Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We were in Kenya on a safari. While we thoroughly enjoyed our food over 8 days in Kenya, we missed Asian food just a little bit. We were pleasantly surprised to find good and authentic Chinese food in this restaurant in Nairobi.

We are ethnic Chinese from Malaysia, so I guess it counts for something when we said that the food is authentic !

Do give this restaurant a visit.

“Excellent Chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We always make a point to visit this restaurant. This last visit to Nairobi was no exception we found ourselves there 3 times in one week. Either lunchtime or evening. The food is excellent, the menu is varied and the staff are very attentive. The interior may appear a little tired but after you have tasted the food the visit will have been very worthwhile.

“A very established restaurant that serves good authentic chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Authentic chinese food is not very common in Nairobi. Most restaurants in the Westlands area serve Indo chinese food catered for the Asian tastebuds. However Panda offers authentic food. the service is very efficient and friendly.
the restaurant is very spacious and can accommodate big groups as well as corporate lunches which it is common for being one fo the few good restaurants in the CBD.
The prices have always beenr easonable though recently revised. we have frequented this restaurant for many years and have never been disappointed. the quality of food is consistent and good value for money.
