    Wonderful experience at Krill and we will definitely be back. As someone who has food allergies, I really appreciated that I could choose from 75% of the menu. The curry was hands down the best curry I’ve had in ages!!

    Cute little place with dishes from different Asian cuisine. Took my 8yo and he loved the Krill fried rice. My personal favorite was the dumplings and crab khao soi, both were packed with flavor!

    Nice place for a drink and snack. Food was hit or miss. Ordered 5 things and 2 were not worth it/nothing special. Crab Khai Soi was really good--would get that again! Patio and bar are nice spaces.

    We had a nice meal here on a Friday evening. Very good service (food arrived all together almost too quickly). The chive pancakes and dumplings of the day were excellent. The lamb rendang was tasty but for rendang the meat should be off the bone and with very intense flavor which this was not. Ambience was good but a little too noisy due to bare walls/ floor reflecting sound

    My friend and I sat outside on the enclosed patio which is quite nice. Our waitress, Abby, was great--friendly and professional. The food was fantastic. We shared the green papaya salad and the pork sisig for dinner and had the coconut sorbet for dessert. The portions were generous and more than enough food for two people. I frequently go to restaurants and come away thinking I could have made that better at home. Not so here--it was absolutely perfect and delicious--highly recommend!

    Really, really good food. Kind service but inadequate. They were down a bartender so drinks didn’t come with food and took quite a long time. It was difficult to be able to order … not sure if they were understaffed there too? Our table was regularly overlooked and our server kept coming back to the same tables and passing us. It was stressful and I felt devalued as a patron. The food and ambience was fantastic and the server was pleasant enough but it wasn’t an actual good experience so I’m not sure if we’ll be back. Disappointed to have to give this review since the food was so good.

    Food was great. Different without being wacky. My Negroni riff was fantastic. Only hitch was that it was VERY loud. Nice for young folks but us elders were having trouble hearing. Will go back but probably on a non-Saturday night.

    Krill is a small, intimate restaurant located on Ramsuer street. The food and service was excellent with affordable prices. We ate dinner there before attending a show at DPAC. Krill is not a walkable restaurant from DPAC. There is parking directly across the street from Krill.

    Food was very good, but two hours for service for three was excessive. Sharing plates came out very slowly, and one which was not delivered was nonetheless on the bill. I may give it another chance, but was disappointed in this experience.

    My husband's birthday is Valentine's Day. Every year it is a challenge to find a good restaurant with good ambience to celebrate. I make our reservations weeks in advance, as you can imagine. I'd been wanting to try Krill for some time. We celebrated with some good friends and could not have had a more enjoyable experience. Great Service! Excellent Food! Fun Cocktails! Great all around! Highly recommend for anytime and especially for birthdays!!

    I don’t want to leave a message on a public forum because this is worse than that. I’ve never been more embarrassed at my life at a restaurant. By far the worst restaurant experience of my life. Unbelievable. We should have known from the second we walked in it would be bad. The guy at the front door who was seating people was speaking poorly about coworkers. Unprofessional. When my fiancé went to the bathroom, she went in after one of the chefs, who didn’t flush the toilet. Our dinner started and shortly after, rain started coming down on us. Our clothes and table were soaking. Never should you be rained on at a restaurant and not a single person say sorry. I don’t care about being comped for the horrible experience. It was the fact they made me feel like it was my fault for being rained on inside. It was wild. Almost every single thing was awful. Chicken was awful. My finance’s drink was awful. Our waitress was kind. That’s the only redeeming quality of the night. Except she didn’t do anything when she realized we were being rained on. Two of us spent $90 to have about 10 bites of food collectively. I’m unbelievably embarrassed. It was a ridiculous experience. After we said we want the check and need to leave, the guy who spoke poorly about his coworkers came out acting like a big shot and said “let me get you dessert. Let me take care of you.” I said my fiancé has an allergy so no. As we were standing up to leave after paying, he still tried to give me the dessert my fiancé was allergic to.

    We went for restaurant week and all of our food was delicious! We had the popcorn chicken and cauliflower for a starter, crab fried rice and BBQ Pork for a main, and their peach mango cheesecake for dessert! Service was a little slow but it was due to it being restaurant week so we didn’t mind! The portions were also large which was great!

    New favorite spot in Durham! Our waitress gave us amazing, personal service (I didn't catch her name, but she had pink hair). All the food was delicious and I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the bill. Drinks were super tasty, but my negroni happened to be quite small. Even for a boozy drink I’d expect at least twice the volume, so I probably won’t order that again. Overall loved it and will be back soon!

    First off the service was exceptional! We got a bottle of wine and multiple plates to share until we were full. The bill was $95 of which half of that was the wine. I believe the value is great the best thing that we got was the bao buns. I could’ve gotten several orders of this.

    Krill was a chill space with an upbeat vibe. The decor is very pretty. Eclectic art everywhere. Sets the vibe. But the menu options were limited if you like a small menu. The karaage chicken was alright to me it was a tad bit too salty. Perfect batter texture but too much salt. I also ordered the onion pancake, which came out like a pastry, and I enjoyed that very much. The main entrées on the menu do not come with any sides or even just rice. So, be prepared to order more than you expect to accompany your other meals. The menu is mixed from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai to Vietnamese inspired foods. The outdoor seating, it's cold as heck during this winter, so I wouldn't recommend the seating outside. The heat lamps give limited heat due to an open section of the covered patio that lets in the cold air. A simple added covering in the section would make the outdoor seating in the winter worth it. Also,it can get really loud if there's a big party, of which I was sitting next to and they were loud. We were closer than I wanted to be. Overall, service was great and very attentive but not bothersome. Give it a try. Hope you enjoy.
