Mister Wok opens fifth branch at Cedar Mall Nanyuki

01 June 2017

Nanyuki, Kenya – Mister Wok, a home-grown Kenyan eatery popular for its Chinese cuisine, has opened a new branch at Cedar Mall, Nanyuki, in a national expansion drive that now takes the chain to five outlets.

It becomes the first formal restaurant offering Chinese cuisine in Nanyuki and its environs. Mister Wok, which already has four branches across Nairobi, will offer travellers on transit to and from Northern and Central Kenya an interesting alternative to the standard fare. Its menu includes vegetarian, sea food, chicken and red meat options and the restaurant will be offering delivery services and outside catering.

Karim Hadi, Chairman of Mister Wok, said: “We are optimistic that this branch will be a success. Some of our clients based in Nanyuki used to order take-outs from Nairobi or travel to dine with us. Now the cuisine is conveniently available North of the Equator!”

The restaurant also has a fully stocked bar offering wine by the glass and bottle, local beers, juices and soft drinks. As an opening offer, Mister Wok has a Lunch Combo meal at 20% off the menu price from Monday to Friday, while those who spend Sh5,000 and above in June will receive a 10% discount off the total bill.

“If you order a delivery from Monday to Saturday between 4pm and 7pm, you will also get 10% off the bill and a free delivery,” Karim said.

Cedar Mall is located on Rumuruti Road in the heart of Nanyuki. The first phase of the development has 120,000 square feet of retail space. The mall – let and managed by Knight Frank – opened on December 1, 2016.

Other major brands that have opened shop at Cedar Mall include Chandarana Foodplus, Nairobi Java House, KFC, Healthy-U, Top Baby Mart, Zara Beauty World, Liquor City, Goodlife Pharmacy, Optica, Soipas, Bata, RICCO Homes & Developers, Home and Household Accessories, Infinity Gaming, MNessentials, Juttsons Ltd, Favor Royal Men’s Wear, Nimry Tech, Orchards Communications Ltd, Bleinheim Ltd, NHIF, Mawingu Networks Ltd, Luscious Touch and Tecno Mobile.

Ben Woodhams, Managing Director at Knight Frank Kenya, said: “Nanyuki has become a property development hotspot owing to its growing population as a result of the town’s popularity as a retirement location, together with a growing economy of ranching, wildlife conservation and agriculture. In addition, the town has a large number of employees working with non-governmental organisations and lodges, as well as hosting the main base for the British Army Training Unit Kenya and a Kenya Airforce base.”
