went to celebrate something personal and were so not dissapointed... The staff was super nice and the food was to die for... Loved the fried tillapia with chillies and garlic... A must go for anyone wanting a nice quiet night out with friends or with the special someone :-)

Totally loved the experience.

“Tai romance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Having a unique experience at the tai chi restaurant is a guarantee. My boyfriend and I spent his 30th there last week. Without exaggeration the best Thai food in the country, ambient atmosphere and the staff made it an exceptional night. We appreciate the attention to detail and tai chi is all about making the smallest of differences. .
Wishing the staff a festive season and Happy holidays. Thank you once again. .

“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.
