“Great Thai Food in a nice environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is quite a small restaurant within the Stanley Hotel and is classed as a fine dining restaurant but still has a very friendly atmosphere. The Thai food was divine and without a shadow of doubt some of the best that I have tasted. Also the food whilst not cheap by Nairobi Standards, is still good value for money

“Best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This thai restaurant in the heart of Nairobi rivals the best thai restaurants from North America (I wouldn't know about those in Thailand).

Very diverse choice of food, but everything is delicious. Chef will modify dishes to suit the dinner's preferences. Food is very well presented.

Service is impeccable. Classy, yet friendly.

Atmosphere is serene, and the decor is very nice. For adults only however.

“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. .
