What a sorry excuse for a Thai restaurant. From overpriced food and drinks to service that is terribly slow, 5 of us went for dinner at 8.30 pm on a Thursday night.

As soon as we sat down,we ordered some duck spring rolls before we even looked at the menu, as we were starving. They took over 30 minutes to arrive, and whilst the filling was nice, the case was like an Indian Chapatti. Had to ask three time for more plum sauce.

We wanted to order wine, but the first 4 choices were not available and we settled on a US$14 dollar bottle of wine that at Soi goes for just over US$90.

Pad Thai - what can I say? Two minute noodles with some fish sauce, and peanut butter.

Service was slow. In fact next to non existent. Food was crap.

Would never go back.

We had booked a table for 4 and duly arrived at 2000hrs. The restaurant was barely full. The ambience is dull and dark and poorly lit. The ceiling is black in color. It was the perfect breeding ground for swarm of mosquitoes. We were shown our table and our shortly later we realized we were getting bitten by the mosquitoes. We looked around and most people in the restaurant had issues with them. We asked for a candle hoping they would go away. We also asked the waiter on what's going on. It's apparently due to the restaurant's close proximity to the Nairobi river and it's the hot season and hence mosquitoes are out. He stated they sprayed the place before dinner. Anyway we ordered our three starters. The waiter only brought in two. After we finished the two we asked for the 3rd one and they stated they forgot!

The portions are little and a bit pricey.

Nevertheless we ordered the mains and the food was spicy. The portions were okay. By this time more mosquitoes had gathered and were attacking us. We asked for the manager and it was stated they looking into it and it's due to the poorly lit ambience that the mosquitoes keep on coming. They have been fumigating the place but to no avail. We told the manager that it could be a health risk and the mosquitoes could be carriers of a known infectious diseases. The response - it's been worked on.

One of our friends visited the washroom and it was the same case with mosquitoes!

Overall the experience was bad, over priced food and we not visiting the place anytime soon.

Tried SOI for the first last night. The good: The restaurant itself is gorgeous, especially if seated outside, and the waitstaff was super attentive. The bad: Although most of flavors were nice, the food was super salty. Almost unpalatably so. The ugly: OMG the prices. My husband ordered the chicken stir-fry (1450 Ksh) and the waiter asked if he wanted "steamed or fried rice." We both assumed he meant as an accompaniment to the stir fry. Wrong. He meant as an additional order that was 850 Ksh! FOR A SCOOP OF FRIED RICE. Was honestly tempted to go back and try some of the noodle dishes till we got the bill.
