“Excellent food, even better service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

The food is authentic Thai food as they employ two Thai chefs. Having travelled to Thailand and used to good Thai in Australia, this one is a good one. You need to book. We did not but got in as they had a spare table. The deep good hearted staff are excellent and its not because of their 5% service charge. If you are looking for an excellent 5 star resturant in Nairobi and like Thai, don't miss it.

“Fine Thai cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Had dinner at this good restaurants located at the Stanley Hotel. Excellent Thai food with great flavors and as close as you can get to the best Thai food. Starters are big, so consider sharing. So are the main courses (very generous servings). Excellent service.

“Good food but rip off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Was there for a business dinner. Waiters completely exploited the situation. After the meal at the time of the bill inrealise that whatever we called for a single portion was charged as double portion. Several sodas were charged without even being ordered. Since it was a business meeting no one wanted to argue. But felt cheated

Dear Mr. Akshay G,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback on your experience at Thai Chi.
It is a pleasure to note that you chose to host your business dinner at Thai Chi and we are glad you found the overall meal “good.”

Kindly allow me to expand on the order taking process, which is standard in the restaurant;
After ordering items, it is standard for the waiter to repeat the orders and confirm the same with the host before placing orders with the kitchen. Being a business dinner, it is typical for starters to be per individual and not shared, unless otherwise requested. Hence, in this instance two portions of starters were ordered as requested.
Being a fine dining restaurant, as with all similar restaurants of this nature, the service team are trained to “top up glasses” of their diners until requested otherwise by the host; with additional beverages ordered again at the tables request.
In this case, both standards mentioned were practiced by the waiter.

In viewing of the foresaid I hope this eliminates any notion of you feeling “cheated.”

Once again, we thank you for your comments, and do hope to welcome you back to Thai Chi in the near future.

Warm Regards,
David Gachuru
