My fiancé and I were staying at The Stanley for vacation, and apart from some relatively minor issues, really liked the hotel. We both love Thai food, and decided to try Thai Chi on the first floor, after hearing some great reviews. The service started out great, and the restaurant was a real treat, until the food came. So, first,... More

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.
