A great new Thai restaurant close to the UN headquarters... Has lots of secure parking outside and very easy to find!

Beautiful atmosphere as soon as you enter the main doors. Staff are very attentive and know their stuff! We had a few drinks at the bar before as we waited for others to arrive, the bar is well stocked and has everything you should want. Beers coast 300ksh. Really nice bar actually!

Food was super tasty and well priced (considering location and quality) the mains range from 900 to 1,500ksh... The portions are generous and most important the flavor was superb! We actually ordered more at the end as we wanted to try other things on the menu and honestly could have kept going and going (greedy I know!!)

Over all a great new addition to Nairobi and I'm sure we will be heading back soon. Well done!

Visited Emerald Garden for the first time last week.

The restaurant setting is beautiful and has a special atmosphere at night. The service is attentive and personal, without being overbearing. We were a big group of people with a set menu and the food was more than enough (the waiters were always ready to just dish more).

We had a good selection of various dishes. The food was fine, but I have had better Thai in Nairobi. Would recommend to visit at least once though.

we just ate at Emerald Garden and are not sick - yet. Been passing that complex since it opened and decided today to take my family for lunch. deliciously flavoured tomyam soup, but the chicken was tough, grissly and the worst cuts... something like you'd get in a stew at a roadside duka, not the chicken i'd expect in a 400/- bowl of soup... and there was some sort of rancid taste in the soup, whi...See more
