To China And Back: Our Latest Restaurant Review

We all love a good night out or that random hangout with friends but if you are like me these plans at times come attached to a calculator that gets me rethinking them and even “sitting out this one due to budgetary constraints”. Maybe you are like my friend D-mac who blames everything on covid with his popular ‘’ Si you understand there is covid “.

I know times have been challenging and totally get that we have to manage our resources carefully so I went checking out a joint that offers you good food without breaking the bank.

This little gem is tacked at some neat corner along Gitanga Road, Lavington, Nairobi. The demand for their food was so high they opened second restaurant meters from the old one. If you haven’t caught in, am talking about (drum rolls please …..) For you Chinese Restaurant.

This is definitely your go-to place when you need authentic Chinese food in great portions and an even greater price. I recommend taking a friend along as their portions can be overwhelming for one, plus food tastes better when shared anyway . The portion size for one serves two comfortably even for self-declared food lovers like me.

Beef fried noodles

All their meals come with a house starter, complimentary ice cream dessert and did I mention they give you a free gift as you leave? We tried their golden fried prawns, vegetable rice, beef noodles, pork in mushroom and chicken in cashew. The taste was great, flavor was out of this world and the freshness of their food was just refreshing ( you taste the crunch in everything that needs a crunch ). All these for just 3700 bob for three food lovers and we even packed some leftovers.

Golden fried prawns

I rate this place 4 stars for their quality, pricing, and service, Enock and Claudia our stewards were extremely delightful. The ambiance was good enough save for the occasional smoke from the kitchen when they are rolling out their plates.

Vegetable fried rice

Someone please tell D-mac that for this one covid hasn’t happened and so he has no excuse as it will set him back an average of two thousand bob for our meals and drink. I will even let him keep both gifts.

Ps: I’m open for food ventures and maybe a food anonymous group 😊

see you soon as we explore the next joint.
