I was blown away by the ambience, the decor, lighting, music, scents and service. The food, let's... read more

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.

So, first,... More
