Always enjoy eating here. Food served with chopsticks. For a large group, we ordered early and it was ready for us. Like most places, everything is made from scratch after it is ordered. We have loved everything we have tried.

Possibly my favourite restaurant in Kisumu. Went in a small group for dinner, arrived quite early when the restaurant was quite quiet. We were served very quickly and the food was hot, tasty, plentiful, and good-value. The restaurant is on one of the main streets...More

3 of us went to dinner here on evening. The food is amazing and the potions are huge. This is the best place in town to eat. If you visit Kisumu you owe it to yourself to come here and eat dinner.

The wait staff aren't always great but the food is quite good. The food is definitely a 'toned-down' version of Chinese food, so don't come here looking for authentic dishes but in terms of eating in Kisumu, this is definitely one of the better lunch...More

Come up to the second floor of Al-Imran plaza, and you'll be treated to a nook of oriental cuisine in Kisumu. It's not the most authentic Chinese food, but then again you're in Kenya. The restaurant is like a stalwart in the middle of Kisumu...More
