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

Great staff, good food. Accomodated a large group which was not their priority. However, the food was great, came quick, and service was excellent.

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

The Food i ordered was pretty decent . the salad fried rice etc.. The service was excellent. The place is a bit over priced for the quality. So if you dont mind the price..then go for it.

We asked our taxi driver to take us to an Asian restaurant and he brought us here. We ordered several plates of food which we shared between ourselves. All the meals were amazing. We really enjoyed the food. Elegant setting and lovely service as well. Well done.

I had my dinner at this resturant in Sarova Stanley and was really disappointed. Although the ambiance is quite nice, the service I received, was terribly poor and the quality of food was not what I expected. I want to believe perhaps it was my wrong choice of dishes?? I will think twice before I return to this resturant for... More
