Management changed and Thai chefs left years ago. A pity as I loved the Thai food here. Now it's pan-Asian, basically Chinese and Indian chefs. Service and food were ok. All in all average and disappointing compared to past.

When you are in the area stop by for lunch! Went there twice and was not disappointed, though there are no Thai's working there the food was very good, fresh and the place's atmosphere is excellent! Great flavors and the service is outstanding.

The food is quite average and comparatively very overpriced. I had the red curry and it was very disappointing. Also, note that prices on the menu are exclusive of taxes (which they do indicate on the menu). I do not recommend Emerald Garden - there are far better dining options in Nairobi.

Nicely situated in a large outside area off busy UN Avenue and cozily heated with gas lanterns in the cooler time of the day/year, the Thai/pan-Asian food here is not more than average. No reason to go back.

I recently returned to one of my "go-to" Nairobi Asian food haunts to discover that new management had implemented a number of new changes, including a more basic simplified menu. Unfortunately the changes did not have the intended impact and it was clear immediately that the quality of food and level of service had suffered. Our experience started with news... More

We were there for a official dinner and the first word which came out on entering was WoW. Super ambiance serene and beautiful. We ordered starters which were great. Main course Thai green curry, steam rice and beef curry was just fabulous. Just could not stop eating. Service very attentive and smart. Portion size good fairly expensive but I guess... More
