This is almost certainly the best Thai food you will eat in East Africa. Very authentic and well flavoured. Servings are generous and the ambiance is lovely. Staff are well trained and attentive. With 28% taxes are added, the prices are high but probably justified for the quality of the food. Recommended.

Most say that I was pretty sure it could not have the taste of Thai, but delightful to be in the wrong, and the food was as being in Thailand, restaurant is also very nice, reminding me of Bangkok.

If I lived in Nairobi I would be a regular. I live in Chicago and love Thai food, and until tonight thought I had the best, I was mistaken. Thai Chi at the Stanly Hotel is by far the best yet. The service was just as good as the food. Alex was great and made my husband and I feel... More

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 tell... 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
