KIN never disappoints. Food is always incredibly good - which explains why it's always packed and you should book a table or be prepared to wait up to 15-minute wait at lunchtime (but so worth it)!
Good Food and value. Very busy lunchtimes and service still good.
Great ambience, staff were friendly and helpful. Good quality of food.
The food was delicious. Service was quick and efficient, the waitress checked up on us and made sure everything was alright. The 4/5 stars rather than 5 for service is simply because there was some confusion with getting us our bill and I had to flag someone down to get some more water a few times throughout the meal but honestly that’s just nitpicking. It was a lovely place and I’ll definitely go back if I find myself in Farringdon. Thank you!
Great food, great vibe, great price!
Food was delicious, waiters were initially friendly but hosting 14 of us seemed to get rather complicated for the waitressing team and so it took a long time to get settled. We also only got part of the deposit back, as 2 of our teammates were unable to make it - which seems slightly unfair given how large our party was! Would recommend but it's a small place so smaller groups definitely easier to accommodate
A cosy and lively restaurant. Good food and menu selection, and decent portion size! Great value. Will definitely go back
This is a great place for lunch or dinner - some interesting food, and friendly service
The food here is great, but the staff were inattentive and somewhat rude.
Really enjoyed our food and the pad Thai was really nice. Not too spicy but had a good kick to it.
Service was good but felt they wanted our table back as it did get busy towards the end of our meal.
I would recommend and I would go back!
Had to pre-order, since we had a larger group at peak time, but it meant we were served quicker and more time to socialise with each other
Great food and the ambience was perfect. Make sure you book as it's very busy at lunchtime!
The pad Thai was spicier than previous times so I was taken by surprise. Noodles are fresh and service was good
This was my second visit to Kin, it has been a while since the first but the food was just as good as i remember it.
The chicken wings are amazing, so make sure you get yourself some of them. All the other items we ordered we good too but the Chicken wings stood out. Something I didn't expect was the size of the Calamari starter. The portion was great but the size of the actual pieces were a little overwhelming and I think it would be nice if the time was taken to cut them a little smaller.
The service is a little rushed if I am honest, this isn't a complaint - I also don't expect to receive an email, call and text from a restaurant to ensure we are coming. It would be good if you only opted for the text option in future. My only small niggle is - please could you make regular mojitos, when we asked the waitress she said no. It would be fine in any other instance but you have lychee Mojitos on your menu, what does one do when they are allergic to Lychee?
Starters tasted great.
Main courses lacked flavour and seasoning. Chicken is precooked and added in.
Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Having looked into this, I can see you ordered the spicy chilli yaki udon dish to be made milder/non-spicy. In hindsight, our team should have warned you that by requesting a less/non-spicy version, most of the flavour from the dish would be lost/removed. We have since retrained the staff & adjusted the menu description. I would also add that customers are very welcome to send dishes back if they are unhappy with it. Thanks.
Good Vietnamese although some dishes are spicy so careful about what to order if yo don’t like that.
Good service, nice staff and all pretty quick.
Hi Mary, thank you for your kind words and positive review. Yes, some of the dishes are quite spicy, I hope everything was ok for you on the night. There are quite a few dishes we can make milder and a handful where we can make it non-spicy aswell. Many thanks
Excellent little place with fantastic food and service.
Hi Vinny, thank you for your kind words and for choosing KIN. We're really pleased you and your friends had a great time.
We made a booking on a Friday at KIN and the table was ready when we arrived. Staff were very friendly and service was prompt and good. The duck spring rolls were delightful and my singapore noodles were delicious. My friend had another curried noodle dish which was a bit too spicy for her so if you don't like much spice best to ask! Cocktails were nice too. I would go back. Good value for money.
Thanks Helen, we're really pleased to hear you had a good time.
Great small restaurant with nice staff and delicious food.
They gave my vegetarian friend, chicken accidentally, then when we tried to swap it the waitress was incredibly rude before deciding to finally get us a new Pad Thai without chicken.
The food NEVER disappoints! Service is friendly and efficient. Very popular so best to book or arrive at 12 noon!
Amazing as always!!! Especially as they have finally started to do milder versions of the super spicy dishes!!
Fantastic food, great restaurant, a small cosy dining room so can be a bit noisy but for a street thai restaurant that's what I'd expect.
Loved every drop of food we ate here. The restaurant gets a little hot and we had a great bottle of wine.
Such lovely people and delicious food! Adorable spot - highly recommend. Get the Khao Soi! 👍🏻
Great service from Kin. Able to confirm over text and table waiting when we arrived. Would definitely visit again.
The atmosphere and the staff were nice but I was disappointed with both my tofu starter and my Singapore noodles main - both were completely tasteless.
Great food, flexible options for GF/DF, nice wine list, lovely staff, cool setting. Go, you wont regret it!
I decided to eat here because I’m coeliac and kin came up as having good gluten free options “most of the menu is naturally gluten free”. However I was immediately told that the kitchen was small and there was a high risk of cross contamination- in addition many of the items on the gluten free menu weren’t available or weren’t suitable for coeliacs because they were cooked on a contaminated grill or in contaminated oil. So... not actually gluten free at all then.
All of this is fair enough - restaurants are under no obligation to provide gluten-free food - but I think they do misrepresent their ability to do this in their description. While I really wouldn’t recommend Kin to anyone with coeliac disease, otherwise the service was friendly and relaxed, and everyone else had a nice meal, reasonably priced.
Lovely atmosphere and terrific food, will definitely be back!
Food is Delicious! Definitely worth a try.
The only downside is that its a bit noisy so not good for business meetings.
Food it amazing!
Penang curry - very good. Yakisoba - very poor.
Great food choice for carnivores or vegans. Usually good service, and always excellent value. Have been many times and will continue to do so. Thank you Kin
Food was disappointing and were told we couldn't move tables to the nicer part of the restaurant as they close that part down first, so had to sit under very bright lights.
Food was good - they were very busy so service was slightly slow. (I went at lunch) Really enjoyed the food and have been back since
The food is always delicious and the service is fast and friendly.
We really like Thai food and have had the dishes we ordered several times before so knew what to expect. Unfortunately the food at KIN was just OK and actually slightly bland. The cocktails were pretty ordinary too, though quite reasonably priced.
Service was very prompt and friendly but a bit unstructured. For example, we ordered similar drinks and my drink was brought 5 minutes after my companions. My companion was also left without cutlery for the main dish. When we asked for the bill, they came with the card machine to take the payment before we’d seen the bill itself, which then arrived. Nothing major and happy with how prompt they were but could be improved with attention to detail.
Ambience was fairly good and as with most Thai food it was reasonably priced.
Second time visiting Kin and it did not disappoint! Super yummy food, good value for money and excellent service! Very happy I live so close!
The food was good but a bit too creamy for our liking. Otherwise, the staff was attentive; the service quick. We arrived 15mns late but they checked with us beforehand and moved our reservation. The ambiance is casual and the surroundings modern and comfortable. Good for a catch up with a friend.
