According to a local Kenyan daily, the restaurant is known as the Chinese Restaurant. The restaurant relation manager, Esther Zhao said that the ‘No Africans after 5pm’ policy came into effect after robbers armed with guns raided the restaurant. The robbers fled away with Ksh 600,000 ($6,534) and some possessions belonging to the customers.

Some of the exempted Africans on the Chinese Restaurant’s list is said to include Nairobi Senator Mbuvi Gideon Kioko and former cabinet minister Raphael Tuju.

Who are both said to have been refused entrance at the Chinese Restaurant because they are Africans.
The restaurant is said to be considering starting a membership scheme that will only see their loyal African customers given cards that will allow them entrance to the restaurant after 5pm.
