“Very Good Food in a Memorable Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Thai food was authentic, and the service was attentive. My wife and I enjoyed walking around the historic Stanley Hotel. Eating at the Thai Chi Restaurant is a great escape from downtown Nairobi. Highly recommended although a bit expensive.

“Brilliant Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The food and service at the Thai Chi combine to provide one of the best Thai foood experiences I have encountered in Africa. The choice is excellent, the staff are Knowledgeable, and very freindly. The food can be spicy, but we ate with a hot food intolerant guest, and even he was able to enjoy the flavours which come through, rather than jsut the heat.
They also have a great wine list - overall expensive, but a great experience.

“Spicey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Good spicy Thai food, just the way i like it. The spicing can however be overdone at some instances and individuals not used to such will have difficulties if its their first visit
