    Food was good, lad pork is way too spicy (not all your customers are from thailand that can it that so spicy food) and pricey, it's like having a good steak somwhere else. The drinks were way too pricey. We were only two persons and only ordered one appetizer, 1 padthai and the main and we spend almost $200! I could have just ate in one of the good and best thai restaurant in vancouver but will never spend that much for a two persons. We will never go back to this restaurant. I wont recommend because of the pricing.

    The food absolutely blew me away. I had moderate expectations as I’ve heard a lot of hood things about this place, but was still expecting disappointment. I’m so glad we were not disappointed, far from it actually. Every dish we tried hit the spot perfectly, the flavours were out of this world, and every dish we ordered blew us away. The red curry duck confit, pad Thai, and Tom yum are must orders!

    Food was great. Service not as great as last time. Although we came in with a big group so I can understand that they could not catch us easily when we needed service. Due to the restaurant policy we still paid 20% gratitude which the policy was totally fine with us. Only that the experience would be nicer if the service remained great and made the 20% tips worth it.

    This was my first time here and the hype did not disappoint! What drew me to dining here was their unique cocktail menu - highly recommend these two cocktails: “you, me and lychee” & “lychee margarita”. My favourite dishes were the pad thai and the tom yum soup. Both were so delicious! We also had the pomelo salad which was okay in my opinion as well as the mango sticky rice - first time trying this type of dessert so I’m not sure how I feel about it…mango was really tasty. Our server, Anna was extremely sweet and friendly! She made our experience so wonderful. This was probably the best Thai restaurant I’ve had in Vancouver, and I’m excited to go back to try more dishes and more cocktails.

    The people who work there are extremely nice and personable. The food was top notch! My husband and I felt it was on par with Pai in Toronto, but that’s just our personal opinion. I had the duck confit red curry and it literally fell off the bone and was AMAZING! The only thing I wish was that there was more red curry, however there was a lot of duck meat. The serving portion was big, it’s more like a family style. Recommend you to go with at least 4 people to really enjoy all the food!

    This restaurant was highly recommended by my friend. I trust that their a la carte menu is tasty but not their tasting menu . The sauce of each dish is either too salty to death or too sweet to death. None of the 8 courses taste delicious. Very disappointed. I do not feel that the chef has given any thoughts to any of the dishes. Just randomly put whatever ingredients on hand ,add veggie n meat,mix a bad taste of sauce without sampling himself before serving.That explains why all the sauce either too too salty or too sweet .The green curry is the only dish that is edible.Do not order the tasting menu @$85. If u decide to visit this store, order from a la carte menu

    Food was amazing, service was good even though it felt like a busy night for them. Only complaint was that the restaurant was so hot, I was fanning myself the entire time with a napkin. Their tom yum soup was served in a pot that was lit up and that only made it even hotter. Hopefully their air conditioning starts working soon because everything was top notch, it was just kind of hard to enjoy the food / company when you’re sweating and trying to cool yourself off.

    Brought my friend here for her birthday as she's never tried the original location and we were very happy with all of the food! Everything was delicious! The only part that was kind of weird was the way we were seated which resulted in me always feeling like the waitstaff were coming to talk to us even when they weren't going to. It's a small space though so I totally understood why the chairs were positioned so you're not sitting across the table and just on the side of your guest instead. But overall, everybody was welcoming and great service. Food was delicious and I absolutely loved the pork jowl, toast, and pad Thai.

    The food was amazing. We had the red curry with duck confit, pad Thai and pomelo salad. Although we loved the food, it would have been nice if everything were a bit cheaper. The chairs at the bar were a bit uncomfortable. Overall the servers were great, very friendly. One of them, perhaps a manager, was a bit tense. It would have been nice if he was more relaxed and friendlier.

    The food was outstanding but the portion was small compare to the price; therefore, I had to deduct one star overall. There is no AC in the restaurant so it was not enjoyable in the hot summer heat waves. The staff explained it's to provide an authentic Thai experience, which I understand... but the staff were also covered in sweat and sweat drops dripping from their faces - I don't think it's a pleasant time for them. Despite of the lack of AC and inhabitable heat, the food itself is great with unique flare. I'd recommend to my friends (and warn them of the heat in summertime). Try their unique cocktails for sure!

    There is no better Thai restaurant on in the lower mainland. I admit I cried a bucket when Pok Poks in Portland closed down over the pandemic. What a loss. But Kin Kao Song makes me feel better, and it's even in Vancouver. What a blessing. Outstanding food. Outstanding staff. We are truly blessed to have such a place in Vancouver with proper high end Thai food. If you find it pricier than other places, don't let it turn you off, it's worth it, and it's outstanding value. Prove me wrong. <3

    Delicious, authentic food but one point that would have made the Laab and the pork jowl so much better. They don’t serve Khao Niaw (sticky rice, a northern Thai staple) They do a sweet version for dessert but not with mains. All other dishes and the wine selection were excellent. Loved the Orange wine from Oliver. Went perfectly with everything we had. Oysters to start and Pomelo Salad Laab and Pork Jowl with rice for mains. We will be back!
