Thai
Kin Dee’s is a modern tropical eatery with cuisine that is truly authentic representation of Thailand through its unique flavors, its ingredients and overall vision. Focused on made-from-scratch, authentic and primarily noodle-based dishes, Kin Dee delivers native cuisine exactly like it’s served in Thailand. Kin Dee’s beverage menu boasts 13 signature cocktails – each inspired by and designed to pair perfectly with one of the 13 signature entrees. Concocted with a decidedly Thai flair, cocktails include the Tom Yum, a Thai twist on a classic Texas margarita, the Mango Sticky Rice, a play on the well-known Thai dessert and the Phuket, a sour twist on a pineapple flavored drink. Kin Dee also serves a selection of wine, draft beer and Thai beer. Our patios are dog friendly.

    Lots of flavor but curry wasn’t as hot (warm) and soup portion inadequate. Sweet rice for tiger cried was hard. Service was good and manager came to check up.

    I don’t know if it’s because we eat outside but service was horrible. Had to keep asking for water refills that would never come. Food can be very spicy so water should be flowing.

    6pm dinner should be family time dinner, but barely hear each other as the music was so loud. The 10 year old kid had to cover ears most of the time. Food was okay but the ambiance ruined our family dinner, horrible!!!

    Solid food, a bit overpriced for the standard Thai noodle dishes and curries. Primary complaint was the extremely close tables and DJ music on a Saturday night. Understand that is the vibe, but if you want to be able converse, it is a bit annoying; not to mention electronic dance music is just annoying in general.

    Food quality was good, they gave you big portion. The kitchen needs to be aware of the cooking time for their satay, chicken satay was very much over cooked, pork satay was cooked perfect except that one skew was burnt hard and black. Service was excellent. We had a reservation but the wait was still 20-30 minutes, but they offer the outside nice area for those who needs to wait. The restaurant is packed most of the time. They have live music, which was nice, but that might be a problem if you really need to talk to your friend. A very good dining experience, will return!

    Love the food - all tasty and fresh fresh fresh! A very clean and inviting space! I would prefer the staff not vacuum the floor around us while dining. The singer has a great voice and sings a great variety, but entirely too loud in the space for my taste. It was practically impossible to carry on a conversation with the guest across the table from me. I will return, food is so good, but I will be sure to ask if there will be live entertainment inside. The patio will be nice to enjoy in cooler months.

    EVERY COCKTAIL, APPETIZER, and ENTREE WERE DELICIOUS! We were fortunate to reserve a tall table a day in advance; but, it was in a very cramped and crowded bar area with lots of customer and staff foot traffic. Our server (also bartender) and her assistant managed the extensive bar and outside patio areas well enough; but, with more assistance we may have imbibed and eaten more! We look forward to returning and/or for takeout again soon!

    This was our second time at Kin Dee and it did not disappoint. The food and drinks were top notch. There was live music which was nice, it wasn’t too loud that we couldn’t converse with each other. Would recommend to others looking for a good Thai meal.

    We eat a lot of Thai - both homemade and dining out - and Kin See was right up there with some of the better. The purple dumplings are a must, and the soup and entrees were spot on for quality, quantity, and price. We're not cocktail people but we saw a lot of fun drinks nearby. Only knock on KD is the noise level. Was hard to hold a conversation at a quaint table for 2 at 6:00p on a Saturday. Will try outdoor seating when it cools off a bit. Good parking in back, service was great.

    We all love Thai food but this was an extraordinary experience. The absolute loveliness of presentation every detail exactly right. The timing of the meal the ambience. The dishes that we chose were absolutely wonderful and avoided all the pitfalls that Thai food can fall into. Flavorful and spicy and unique but not overdone just right!
