A birthday night to remember

My beautiful wife took me here to celebrate my birthday (after asking around the office). Fantastic ambiance, world class wait staff and excellent, excellent food. Go and enjoy, but be advised, parking can be a bit of a bear (its worth it)

I cannot fault this restaurant at all. From the moment we sat down to the moment we left. One of the best birthday meals I've had. It is expensive and you do have make sure you dress appropriately so be mindful if you ever decide to visit.

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
