“Great Thai Food in Nairobi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Have discovered this place by chance on Jan 1st, 2013 as was invited by a friend that had booked it for a private party... Fell in love with the food and been back three more times since (two birthdays including mine and a get-together with another couple of friends).

I find the food VERY VERY good and the prices are VERY reasonable for where U R and the quality of the food.

The service is my only complain about this place. Although the waiters are very well trained and very courteous service is very slow and sometimes being left alone wondering when they will come :)

All in all I suggest it as the food is REALLY good!

“A good Thai place, but not outstanding”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

No idea why it is called 'muhibbah'...is that really a Thai name? Food is nice, ambience is very much the same as the rest of the Sankara...as in a bit cold and bling. Not sure i like the 'tick your own menu to order' routine, not when you are paying the kind of money they want off you.' Food is perfectly acceptable.

“Really good South East Asian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Muhibbah is within the elegant Sankara Hotel, we first had pre-dinner drinks at the Sarabi Pool / The Champagne Bar with great views over the Nairobi skyline. Muhibbah has a great lively atmosphere. Service was good but room for improvement. The wine list was a joy to browse, a great selection. The clipboard menu was very funky. We had starters and main courses to share and we were not disappointed. The duck with pineapple and grapes was amazing, great prawns and a really nice lemongrass crème brule. I had to add Muhibbah to TripAdvisor as a great Nairobi restaurant.
