New Restaurant Menu

Thorn Tree Restaurant at Sarova Stanley refreshes its menu
Nairobi, Kenya, April 2018… The Thorn Tree Restaurant at Sarova Stanley is eyeing a piece of the growing urbanite middle class interested in experiencing great culinary adventures, with the revamp of its menu that embodies a smart eclectic cuisine, creatively designed and presented plates using pleasing colour effects and at the same time offering balanced meals.

Sarova Hotels Managing Director Jimi Kariuki says the revamped menu exemplifies the restaurant’s passion in food and beverage, which is an important aspect of guest experience at all the Sarova Hotels properties.

The wide selection on the menu presents a balance between classic and innovative in its approach towards beverage and culinary offerings. It offers a selection of the highest quality locally sourced fresh produce to enhance flavour and texture.
Some of the dishes on the menu include Oak-fired certified Angus beef fillet medallions topped with ricotta stuffed Portobello mushroom over mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables, and the pan-seared duck breast and confit leg, both from the meat section. For sea food delicacies, the choices include the red snapper Zanzibari, and the Cajun grilled jumbo prawns on skewer.
Sarova Stanley is one of the oldest hotel in the country, holding the prestige of being the only 5-star historical luxury hotel. The menu will also take guests on a historical culinary journey from some specially crafted sections. The Silk Route section for instances that rides on the Asian cuisine theme will offer the Moong Dhal Tadka and the Rogan Josh.
From the Good Old Memory Lane, guests can indulge in the 1902 Chicken Poussin, which has been tossed in chilly butter served with pont neuf potatoes, coleslaw and spicy sour cream. They will also serve the Hungarian vegetable goulash and the Thorn Tree Tilapia Pili Pili among other options.

The Thorn Tree Restaurant is situated at the very same place where a Naivasha Acacia Thorn Tree that was a landmark at a cross road between two trading routes existing before Nairobi was established. The tree was used as the first ‘post office’ by pinning on the trunk, messages for fellow travellers.

The current Acacia Tree at the restaurant is the third generation, last replanted in 1998. At its base is a time capsule with a number of memorabilia that will be retrieved in 2048 when the next generation tree will be planted.

Over 100 years since the hotel was first opened, guests at the Thorn Tree Restaurant will be glad to learn that they will have an experience that Royal safari legends such as Ernest Hemingway, Elspeth Huxley, Karen Blixen, Winston Churchill, President Theodore Roosevelt, Frank Sinatra and Sean Connery have enjoyed.
