The Perfect Meal For Two At Li’s Chinese Gigiri

Looking for an ideal place to meet-up over a meal, somewhere you can actually hear each other over all that noise, have a decent conversation with a friend, or one that’s a little more romantic with your partner, enjoy great drinks and unforgettable dishes in a relaxing and calming environment, whether for lunch or for dinner – does almost seem like a pipe dream for many restaurants in the busy city of Nairobi – and as a keen observer, few seemed to have struck the perfect balance. But one did, after having had immense success with their first location in Mombasa. Over the last couple of months Li’s Chinese Restaurant Gigiri has grown to become one of the favourite highlights on the capitals avid dining scene, as a popular go-to restaurant for extraordinary Indo-Chinese cuisine, and there is no surprise why.

With daily direct access to Kenya’s very best meat & seafood supplies (a sister company of Li’s), combined with skilled cooking techniques and time-honoured recipes, that have constantly been refined, and taste-tested, before dishes are added onto their menus – is just one reason why Li’s has garnered such a huge following. Creating inclusive and relaxing environments where their diners can truly enjoy their meals in, is the other. So here’s why we recommend Li’s Chinese Restaurant Gigiri as a Perfect Venue for 2. 

Let’s Start Off With Drinks On The Terrace

When the invitation is a little less formal, like a casual meal between friends, or your weekly lunch date or dinner date with your spouse. Li’s selection of cocktails, mocktails, wines, freshly squeezed juices and more, are a great way to pique your palates, work-up an appetite, and set the tone for things to come.

Inviting Cozy Interiors & Great Service Awaits

If a relaxing drink on the terrace isn’t on the agenda, then a relaxing sit down in Li’s cozy waiting area will be, and is a great way to get you off your feet and into the right mood. At Li’s they totally understand your needs, and really work with your pace. If you’re in a rush like we were, simply let the hostess know.
