KHONG River House
DeliciousSo happy to finally have a real Thai restaurant (no jut a take out place) in sobe. Green papaya salad, curries....everything I tried was delicious!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy food great vibeThis is one of the few good restaurants on Lincoln rd (doraku and balans are my other faves). I had the wide noodles and pork - very tasty but only a little bit of pork :( but it was yummy nonetheless6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, bad waiterThe food was awesome but the waiter had his head elsewhere. Had our empty plates on thr table at least 15 minutes before I had to tell him if he could please take them away. Did not come once to ask how the food was.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMYum! Worth the drive to the Beach.Great, unique menu items, plus the Thai Fried Chicken special was outrageous! Every bite of every dish was lively, fresh and tasty. I loved the Char Grilled Thai Eggplant. The bar menu with their gin selections will take years to explore. Gin really goes nicely with their Northern Thai menu. We've already decided that we HAVE TO go back for their Tuesday Thai Street Food. The James Beard recognition was well deserved.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food&incredible serviceWow! The food was awesome. We ordered the tasting menu so we could try a bit of everything and we were not disappointed. We had so much left that we had a huge lunch the next day. The only complaint...if there was one, we had to ask our waiter to have the chef ease up on the hot chilis a bit...but otherwise the food was so tasty! The only thing better than the food was the service...even the bus boy was engaging and friendly...the waiter was awesome- explaining everything and being very attentive but not intrusive. He was so great we tipped him 25%! Fun with two but maybe something even better in a group...the whole experience was great!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & Great ServiceThe food was outstanding. Having traveled to Northern Thailand and Vietnam I can honestly say the food at Khong River was an amazing representation of both of these areas. Not your typical Thai food et. al. Pad Thai and other average Thai dishes. These were rather an amazing ode to the food of the north. All of the food was delicious, came out quickly and with friendly service! Highly recommend trying it out. Be prepared to get hooked!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat in every wayDécor , food , service , all very outstanding! Second time here and every bit as good as the fist time. The food is Duck, Prawns, sticky rice, Brocc all outstanding with the right amout of spice. Can't wait to visit again...6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA unique Miami restaurantA unique Miami restaurant which blends Burmese, Vietnamese, Thai and other Asian-fusion flavors. "Spicy" definitely
means Hot & Spicy at Khong.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go again!Great food, great service, great ambiance! A little pricey, but well worth it. I recommend making a reservation on weekends.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisite.I believe I summed up the experience in one word. The food and drinks were exceptional only to be matched with the service. My table ordered several dishes and shared everything. I recommend doing this if you are a foodie like myself. Portions were generous and unlike the last comment I read, I think the food was extremely reasonably priced. I ended up spending 75 dollars for my girlfriend and I and we even had a couple drinks each.
I would recommend this place to people of all ages and whatever size group.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceI really enjoyed this restaurant. The wait staff was on point and the ambiance was very energetic and the design was well done. It was a nice departure from your typical thai restaurant. I am a red thai curry addict and trust me when I tell you it was the most amazing and delicate red thai curry I've ever had. I will have that exact dish again. The bartender made a great cocktail. The only downside of this experience was the wine list. Now, there is a chance that they were sourcing just for things that married to Thai food, however, when drinking them stand alone, not good. BUT having said that the cocktails are monster. So, skip the wine but don't skip the experience. They did a really nice job.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the food!Khong is a great place to eat and drink for those appreciating good ingredients and flavorful dishes. You can't fail with anything ordered. The only issue my husband and I had was service was too fast. If you don't want to be in and out of the restaurant in 45 minutes, ask the server to not give your main dishes to the kitchen until you're ready. Service staff is friendly and management aims to please. There's a great looking bar too and next time we will have a seat there and enjoy our appetizers and specialty drinks.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. The bahn mi was out of this world!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and decorVery nicely decorated place, went all out with the Asian theme, good food !5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GoodI've been here a few times and the food never dissapoints me. Its creatve and very tasty.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the rustic-modernI loved the rustic-modern decor it set the mood.This is our second visit to Khong River House and definitely will return.
Everything was amazing we tried a lot of dishes but the pork loin was the best I've ever had.Our waitress was friendly and
helpful in making our decisions from the tempting menu.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat restaurant authentic foodthe restaurant is great, food is authentic. Great experience. Light can be little too dark at some spot but the food is really paid off.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Brunch Surprise!I had just read about this place on the Delta inflight magazine.....and boy am I glad I did....it was a nice review but you need to experience first hand. One of the best Asian fusion experiences I have ever had....large bar menu, generous portions, reasonable prices and innovative food choices. My favorite was the the coconut sesame pancakes. These things were huge. Seriously, a single person can not eat them and I have been known to throw down some food. They make the batter with yeast, so it is extra fluffy, and the sesame seeds give them this awesome nutty flavor. I dream about those pancakes.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA real gem in MiamiI read about Khong in an airline magazine and decided to do some research. One look at the menu and I knew I wanted to give it a try. I've lived and traveled extensively in Asia. My experience with Asian restaurants in the US has not been very positive. They tend to cater to American tastes which tend to the bland side.. Not so Kong. While the heat is "turned down a bit" it's not absent. We tried the "Sampler" so we got to experience eight of Kong's dishes in one seating... I highly recommend doing this.. It's worth the price... Thu, our outstanding server, helped guide us through the selection process to get the best possible sample of what the restaurant has to offer.. It was truly like a trip down the Mekong river..5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Thai Restaurant on Lincoln RdThis is a very good Thai restaurant just off Lincoln Rd that actually has great tasting food. The decor is unique. The scene is busy but not loud. We had a mediocre waiter but that seemed to be just our waiter. The other waiters in the area seemed to be providing great service. Definitely a place I'd return to.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, drinks, and service!You literally cannot go wrong with anything at Khong River House. The food is beyond excellent. The service is flawless and friendly and they have a ridiculous selection of gin (where else can you get Boodles in this town?). Oh yeah, and they have 43 different types of Negronis. The food certainly does not disappoint: the pork buns were ridiculously good with soft bun complimenting the crispy pork and the pickled goodness. The Pad Mi Korat is a must-try and cap off your meal with the Thai donuts. You will not be disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic!Looking for good Thai? Then this is the place, the food is great the service excellant and the decor perfect!
I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this place, apart from if you having the tasting menu, make sure your hungry!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch!LOVED IT and the Thai take on a good brunch...oh, and the bottomless bar was also a nice touch :)5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSoBe ThaiHad an excellent meal and wonderful service on a late Sunday afternoon. the gimlet cocktail was great. we are looking forward to dinner there on our next trip back.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ambianceFrom the moment we walked in to Khong River House we were both welcomed by the decor and the servers. Our food was amazing, different and delicious. We will return soon and spread the work that Lincoln Road has a gem.
