“The best thai food you will have in Africa...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

...said my friend. And lo and behold, it was true! The service is world class, and so is the food. The duck was delightful, and the banana fritters for desert were straight out of heaven's kitchen. If you can, try to get a reservation for the table near the Buddha statue: awesome ambiance.

“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.
