The Thorn Tree Restaurant

An open-air pavement brasserie/bistro-style café with & an excellent patisserie range. The Historic cafe gaurds The Sarova Stanley's entrance and has the world's famous Messenger- an acacia xanthophidea, whose message-board has formed the centrepiece of the legendary Thorn Tree Café since 1959.

Although the café is now on its third acacia, the messages keep flowing from the café and the atmosphere of Africa's best known meeting place is still as warm and welcoming as it was in those early days.

Thai Chi Restaurant

One of the city's most elegant dining establishments, The Thai Chi Restaurant at The Sarova Stanley, boasts the finest in authentic Thai cuisine.

Situated opposite the Exchange Bar on the first floor, The Thai Chi is a small piece of Thailand in Nairobi.

Modern day Thai cuisine has an ancient history. As early as the thirteenth-century, the Thai people had established what might be considered the heart of Siamese cuisine as we know it today.

Even today, Thailand is a nation obsessed with food. When Thais meet, it is common to greet each other with the question "Where are you going?" quickly followed by "Have you eaten?" This passion for food and a willingness to experiment are the key reasons that Thai cuisine is widely regarded as the finest in the world.

The Exchange Bar History

The past comes to life at the Exchange bar, where the Nairobi stock exchange operated for 37 years after its official launch in 1954. The Exchange bar has become the preferred networking venue with a refined ambiance set in early 19th century decor.

Currently the hotel has introduced a “ Wall of Fame” in the Exchange Bar. This is a collection of photographs depicting Chairmen of the top twenty companies Nairobi Stock Exchange. This ensures The Sarova Stanley keeps a foothold on Nairobi’s business clientele.
