“What a find - I loved it !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Well I had a great evening at this restaurant and was well looked after by Brighton, Nicolas and Jonathan. Calm surroundings with lovely large tables which were well spaced out . I had chicken Satay plus Prawn Curry and I didn't want to leave. I feel as though I have just been to a food spa. Perfect and I will be back for sure as this is in my fav hotel. Ali have been coming to Nairobi for 20 years and in my opinion the Stanley can't be beaten. Well done

It is to our utmost pleasure to read your lovely feedback about your recent visit to Thai Chi; The efforts of Brighton, Nicolas and John have been recognized.
The restaurant offers eclectic Thai experiences from the food, the traditional sitting, to the general décor and I am thrilled that you found this pleasurable.
Comparing Thai Chi to a being booked into a Food Spa is high praise indeed, and we are truly grateful that our Award winning restaurant is held in such high acclaim by yourself.
We truly value you as a guest of ours, and cannot wait to host you once again.

Warm Regards,

David Gachuru.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our award wining Thai Chi restaurant. It is greatly appreciated.

We are particularly pleased to learn that you viewed our food as “excellent” and service as “attentive.” Regarding the limited availability of wine by the glass, we have added various wine by the glass specials and are in the process of reviewing the current wine list to add to the same.

I am glad you had a pleasant dining experience and it was indeed our pleasure to host you.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel and restaurant soon.

Warm regards,

David Gachuru.
