We arrived at 6pm and waited in The Stanley bar until 7pm when the restaurant opens at 7pm. At the entrance is a notice, saying amongst other things ' no open sandals, no short-sleeved shirts & no blouses'. My wife and our friend both wore sandals, our friend and I had short-sleeved shirts and my wife was wearing a blouse.... More

Great food and really neat atmosphere. The chicken and cashew stir fry was aewsome, big portions. It opens a little later but if you're early, it is located attached to the Exchange Bar so you can grab a drink and soak in the history of the bar.

The service,food and were all delightful. We are here twice during our stay and we weren't disappointed. The stir fried lamb, shrimp rolls and sticky toffee pudding g was just some of the yummy dishes we enjoyed here. The service was excellent and don't miss the complimentary massage!

And one of the best Thai food dinners I had. The service was excellent. Alex (?) who served us on one of the evenings gave us a lovely gift of Thai coasters. There was also a very nice lady who offered neck rubs to the guests before the food was brought to the table--while it was nicely offered, I feel... More

The main course and the dessert were delicious. The waiters where very attentive without being overbearing and to top it off my wife and I received a complementary massage as we dined. Highly recommend Thai Chi

First visit saw us having a snack entre size, the prawns being tough and uninteresting. Second visit we had a main meal each and it was delicious. Everything trip advisor contributors had described. The neck massage went well for free and we would have loved to pay for a fuller massage on our backs after our first safari, but this... More

This is a chic restaurant inside the Sarova Stanley hotel where we were staying and we had just checked in waiting for our room so we decided to walk in for lunch with our 2 year old (children only allowed on weekend lunches... lucky us). The food was served quickly, was of good quality and the setting is nice. We... More
