A word from Kin Sushi and Thai Cuisine
This little Noble Square BYOB serves classic Thai noodle and rice dishes (aromatic curries are among the menu highlights) and sushi. The sushi menu focuses on nigiri and maki; expect plenty of house specialty rolls. The decor in the minimalist two-room space is a step up from your usual neighborhood Thai joint, with candlelit tables and clean, modern lines throughout.

    We went with a group of 11 girls for a birthday party and there was couple there. It took at least 20 minutes for a wine opener then another 30-40 minutes until we had to tell the lady that we were ready to order

    I'm not sure if I ordered wrong or if the food wasn't good enough. I felt the 'fried' items were way overdone and greasy. The nagiri pieces didn't feel cold and luke-warm fish is not appetizing. I'm willing to try it again, but for this first time I was not impressed.

    I made a reservation, walked in and as we were being seated, I noticed the couple sitting next to us were still wearing their jackets. We asked for the heat to be turned up and they brought us a small, white space heater to put under our table. Unfortunately, I didn't feel very comfortable and I didn't want to eat the entire meal with my jacket on so we left before we were asked to order.

    Had an overall great experience - my sushi was fresh and tasty and the fact that the establishment is BYOB is even better. No cork fee. Will definitely be back. My debit card unknowingly fell out under my seat when I left - the server was kind enough to chase me down outside in the snow to give it back to me. Great service. Thank you!

    The food was quite good, but at least 3 of the dishes seemed to have been forgotten altogether and only after asking multiple times were they brought out about 30 minutes after the rest of the party had finished eating. Poor service really killed this place for us.

    I offered to take my friend out to sushi for his birthday, and he suggested this restaurant. Actually, he thought this place was Nori (he had never been to Kin before, as it turns out), so our visit here was a "mistake". I'm glad we ended up here, though! The restaurant was totally empty from when we sat down to the time we left (about 1.5 hours), which was a little off-putting...but, it was quiet and the maki was excellent. Our waitress, despite the fact we were the only in-house customers (their phone orders were piled up the entire time) seemed impatient, as if she was trying to rush us out the door the entire time. Additionally, I ordered edamame and egg rolls at the beginning, but only received edamame. I didn't say anything.

    I had high expectations for Kin Sushi because the reviews were so good, they could accommodate a group, and they were BYOB. The food was really good. Our group had both sushi and thai and everyone was pleased with their order. The service however was very slow, it took a very long time to place our order and to get our entrees. There was a lot of time in between receiving our appetizers and when our entrees came out. The restaurant is very small and because there was another large group in the restaurant, the tables were spaced very close together. I think I would go again because the food was good and it was BYOB but I would not go again in a group: 2 or 3 people at most.

    I thought the food here was great. We ordered several rolls, and everything came out perfectly. Granted, it wasn't busy when we were here, but the service was great, and it is hard to beat a $40 meal for two for decent sushi. BYOB is also a plus!

    We had delicious food at Kin Sushi on Saturday night. We ordered both Japaneses and Thai food.(dragon rolls and pad thai-tasty!)I liked the small,personal touches that the restaurant made like creating an origami rose out of the top of the straw paper and the "nest" of carrots used on the side of many dishes. We were there early and the waitress was very attentive.Perfect place to go before seeing a show at Chopin Theater!

    I love this place. Not only do I enjoy their red curry, and pad-see-ew, but their rolls are delicious as well. I, personally, would opt for chicken in your pad-see-ew, their beef option did not impress me. The Rock & Roll is my fav. It's got a little kick to it.

    Kin is our absolute favorite sushi restaurant in the Wicker Park/Bucktown area. We have tried many others, and no place even comes close to Kin. We love every sushi roll we've ordered, and think their main dishes are great as well. Love that it's BYOB. We've dined with large groups of friends as well as just a dinner for two. Kin never disappoints!

    Very good second experience at KIN. Good food and attentive service BYOB makes this especially affordable. My only suggestion would be to turn up the lights somewhat...could be I'm just getting old! Not many diners in both visits, which is a shame but makes this a great place for a large, animated table of friends to have a lively time

    My husband and I go here all of the time. Moderate prices, great service and fantastic sushi. We also bring "new to sushi" people a lot. There are some great choices for people just starting out and if it isn't their thing, we can order Thai! Although we've never had the need to.
