Coming to Nairobi from our upcountry place, it's always nice to get some different food choices. Had noticed this place a few times before, and decided to give it a try. Looks to have been redecorated fairly recently, and it's got a nice atmosphere - better than the other Chinese take-out places in the area. Service was fine, nothing special,... More

I know this restaurant for a few decades and had dinner there recently with a few colleagues, the place had not changed its decor nor its food quality along the years, and as such is a very unique place for very good no nonsense chinese cuisine,,,,.

My memories of this place date back many years (30) maybe and when visiting Nairobi we always try and make it a must to visit.

There was very little question by the locals we asked about the best Chinese or Thai food in downtown Nairobi (Could be a limited number of options, not sure). They all suggested Hong Kong (Chinese/Cantonese). It was walking distance from The Norfolk, our hotel. Our entire party was VERY pleased with their meals and we almost went back for lunch... More

When in town, it's in a nice and not too noisy corner right in the middle of town. Not too sure what opening times but chanced, I liked the service and food.

Had a dinner or supper few times there - every time tasty, good portions and kind service. Nothing extraordinary but an oasis of clean, nice, safe place to eat in Nairobi. One of the best chinese restaurants I've been to in this part of the world.
