Very sad that Spring garden in Lavington closed down, leaving a gap in Chinese Restaurants !!! What can one say when a restaurant closes down. Tripadvisor should not put the restaurant up on their site if it no longer exists!!!!!!!!!

Most of the Chinese restaurants in Nairobi have been Indianised and fortunately this one isn't . Very good food, generous portions, friendly service and cold beer. Understand it is closed at the moment - a friend said it is being renovated. I really hope they reopen

Spring garden was a good restaurant with good food and value for money. Unfortunately has closed for the moment from 01st December. Hope they can acquire a new location and would love to return for meals again.

Not so good not so bad..... Food is fine but the price is high compare to the quality of foods. Not many customers at Friday night so it was quite but looks not good in business now.,

As regular clients of Spring Garden, our last couple of visits, dining there has been a sheer disapointment and waste of money. It was one of our favourite restaurants for Chinese food, but the food is sloppy, greasy, overcooked and ingredients are missing, despite pointing out to the manager that our crab dish contained zero crab! The manager is very... More

The food is heavily fried. The Chinese manager is surly. At least he's impartial, yelling at the waiters and being rude to customers in equal measure. Aah, but there's a plus. You will be discreetly offered the choice of not receiving a bill, paying cash and thereby evading VAT. If that's your idea of a pleasant meal, look no further.... More

We have been eating here since 2006. It is always good, a wide selection of dishes, clean, friendly setting. Nothing fancy. Just consistent Chinese food with flavor. Always a warm welcome.

I went for lunch with my family on a Sunday afternoon and we were kind of late as we entered at about 2.30 but we were still served even though we had to order quick as the kitchen closes at 3. We were served quickly (as we had asked for it as we were really hungry). Even though they served... More
