Discriminates against children!

Read the great reviews for Thai Chi at the Stanley on this site and went personally yesterday to book lunch for a special occasion for a party of five. When I made the booking, face to face with the manager, he did not ask about the ages of the guests, and it certainly did not think it necessary to... read more

I always enjoy Thai Chi. The food is very carefully made and always a treat. Without a doubt, the most outstanding feature of Thai Chi is the customer service. The waitstaff have impeccable knowledge of what they're serving and they're completely confident guiding you to interesting dishes. They don't feel the least bit intimidated which is great. Last time I... More

My sister and I came here for Christmas dinner. The food was delicious, and the staff were friendly but unintrusive. They had bonbons and all the small things that made it a special experience. We ended up eating there again on Boxing Day and it was equally special! It is pricey but worth it for a lovely experience!

We enjoyed the delicious Christmas Buffet in one of Nairobis very few historical settings. The service was outstanding. I have been to many places in Africa but this was by far the best ever service. I explicitly want to mention our waiters Everestus and Barbara who made us feel like in heaven. A great treat for Xmas. I will definitely... More

We ended our trip to Africa with a night at the Stanley and dinner at Thai Chi. The food was great and the service was even better. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I recently had lunch at the Thai Chi at the invitation of a couple of Kenyan friends. I'm glad that I picked up the tab at the end, because when I looked at it after I had paid I was surprised how high it was. One doesn't expect such a restaurant in a top international hotel to be cheap, and... More
