The weekend wok at Pan Asian Yao is where you and your family need to be this and every other Sunday if you like to enjoy an elegantly displayed array of food in the serene environment. For as low as Ksh. 2200 per person, you can enjoy from a range of Dim Sum, Sushi, hot food stations and for Ksh. 3000 you can spoil yourself with unlimited cocktails and wine.
The Pan Asian Yao is located in the leafy suburbs of Muthaiga, along the UN Avenue. The little ones have a play area as well which can keep them busy as you have some grown-up talk.
We had the pleasure of indulging in their delicious array of food. An interesting point to note is that they change their menu every weekend so you can be sure that you’ll be met w with something new and diverse each week;
Given the fact that an Asian cuisine buffet is not the forte in Nairobi, it was such a mouthwatering experience- not to mention a brilliant idea given the increasing number of Chinese in the country.
There were so many things to love about the Asian cuisine, especially the fact that the food is served by authentic Asian chefs, all whom were very friendly and ready to feed you- almost felt like a pig being fattened to be taken to the slaughter house;
Being a self-proclaimed wheat addict, I was duly pleased with how well they were able to settle my cravings with their wide selection of bread. Also, the non-wheat folk were sorted, and the healthy bunch had something to choose from; foccacia , ciabatta , multigrain baguette , rye bread , plain sesame baguette , and much more were all on deck with a selection of olive oil , pesto , mustard paste , mayonnaise , black pepper sauce , red pepper sauce.
The pita with grilled chicken breast, topped with babaganoush and hummus melted in my mouth effortlessly wit the ingredients mixing perfectly with each other.
There was a lot to choose from from the buffet but what stood our most to me were the penne with tomato sauce – basically pasta that has been heavenly marinated, as well as the honey chili lamb- which I was initially skeptical about given the sweet and a chili mix but which turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
As if the array of food was no enough, they went on to provide both vegetable and non-vegetarian sushi, as well as sashimi of tuna, salmon and red snapper.
If you’re a sweet tooth then you’ll be uberly satisfied with their selection of crunchy cookies, elegantly presented cakes, and a live- chocolate fountain with fruit skewers
Kenya never stops Buzzing. You shouldn't either
