Surprised by Thai Chi

We celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary with a trip to Thai Chi. Neither of us had been before, but we both love Thai, and it had been commended to us. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent; service impeccable (thanks Wilson); and the atmosphere transformative - quite easy to forget... read more

The architectural charm of this colonial age SAROVA Stanley Hotel, together with the ambience, the elegant decor, lighting, music and scents of the THAI CHI restaurant is not to be missed. The food quality is excellent and although the prices are a bit high, we found them quite reasonable and were quite happy because we have a ZAWADI DIAMOND card,... More

The curry dishes are superb, the service impeccable. You may want to avoid sitting in the outside section, as it is on a busy street.

There's no contesting that the food at Thai Chi is a great. It's by far the best Thai restaurant in Nairobi, and the setting is charming. This is my second review of the same restaurant. My last visit was seamless, but this one was a bit of a let down. Firstly, the wait staff seemed a bit disoriented - hopefully... More
