Oh, how I hate to write this negative review. Unfortunately we are done with STK. The service and atmosphere was fine - quite good, in fact. But the food was awful. The thai spring rolls were bland though fresh and we hoped the peanut sauce would punch it up. Instead it was a tasteless paste of nothing. Even the Sriracha I requested, sparingly doled out in a tiny bowl, didn't do anything for it. My husband's chicken lo mein was even worse. The noodles were so overcooked and bloated they tasted more like gnocchi or dumplings. The chicken was overcooked and tough, but since there was so little of it in the dish...ah, what can you say? The overall flavor of the mushy vegetables resembled cornstarch or flour. Sorry, never again.
This was my husband's fourth time at the restaurant and my fifth. We went mid-week for a quiet dinner to reconnect after a couple of weeks of business travel between us. While we appreciate the interior design style, they MUST do something about the terrible acoustics and be mindful of the music volume. We sat at a small high table in the bar area, no more than 30 inches apart and had to project our voices just to hear each other. Not really a big deal…just an annoyance. Second, I recommend a more accurate description of the spice level of their Panang Curry dish, which I tried for the first time. While I expected spicy, but this was so hot, even my husband who grew up eating very hot green chili could barely eat it. A bit of a bummer.
Great lunch experience. The menu is large but not overwhelming. The staff walked us through our choices with ease.
BUMMED! We have been fans of STK for a looong time. Today we suggested a client meet us for lunch today. We ordered green curry, lo mien, and tuna tatami salad. Service was tentative and underwhelming. The food was not anywhere as good as we remember. The ahi on the salad was skimpy, sliced so thin you could see through it which would have been fine if they gave you more than 4 skinny pieces. Not worth the $. Chicken in the lo mien was dry and fried. We didn't dare ask the client how his curry was. We were SO disappointed. Our waiter looked scared. Plus we saw a cook in the kitchen eating, licking his fingers and not washing his hands. Uck! All in all, it was a bummer and while we'd like to try STK again soon, we're leery.
STK ensures speedy, yet gracious service for a lunch hour treat. If you enjoy spicy food, try their Kare Laksa. It's delicious.
Street Kitchen has great food and drinks, and the happy hour prices make these aspects of their menu available to diners at a fraction of the regular menu price. I was especially shocked to see some of their specialty sushi rolls on the happy hour menu...but thankful:) Happy Hour is not only affordable at SK, it is fit for a foodie!
Really glad we found this place. Parking can be a pain, but it's worth it. Seriously creative Asian fusion tucked away in the DTC!
When it first opened, Street Kitchen was a favorite, eclectic dishes, great atmosphere, and fun drinks. Sadly, now their menu is laminated with pictures of the food, the dishes are very similar to what you'd find in any other Asian place, and the quality - from food quality to cleanliness to staff, has relegated it to just another so-so restaurant. Sad to see it happen.
This was my 4th time dining at Street Kitchen and the food has always been consistently good with the exception of the Tom Kha Goong which was extremely salty and had a thicker consistency than normal. The waiter, although nice, forgot a couple of our dishes which we had to ask for a couple of times before they finally came out. Our waiter also added 20% gratuity to our bill for 4 adults and 1 child, which I thought was odd and didn't even mention it to us. Overall, we would definitely go back for the food and always check our bill before paying it.
We went here for date night and loved it! Thanks for making it such a fun time!
I've been here a few times and have always been impressed with the food. Today's sesame tofu wasn't very outstanding. Maybe it was just the dish.
As always, the food and setting was great!
We've dinned at its sister restaraunt P17 and knew that this was going to be great! The food was delicious and the service was extremely friendly. We will certainly be returning and plan on bringing our out of state visitors here for dinner.
Great collection of eclectic asian food
We shared several small plates and they were designed for 2 to share, great way to have a variety of the restaurants offerings without one "big" meal.
Provides a good and broad taste of multiple Asian favorites and many items with an American twist / profile. I bring my team here often because it satisfies everyone.
The food is great, the service is great, the kitchen is great, the patrons are happy. What more could you want?
Great concept to have various forms of different culture's food. Menu had many gluten free options as well. Our nmeals were interesting but not fabulous- the spicy pineapple chicken was sweet and not very spicy. Rice was tough.
Maybe bcuz it was a Sunday subpar service. Took about 15 to even have the bartender/server come greet us or take our drink order.
This is a go-to place for us because the food is fresh & beautifully made. Lots of interesting flavors & new things to try so we are never bored. But I have to confess that for lunch I can hardly get anything else except the Bahn Mi. It's out of this world yummy! As is the Thai Beef Sandwich.
My only complaint was that I asked for my chicken dish to be less spicy!! It came really spicy--my husband ate it for lunch the next day. I could not eat it. But food is really good!!
I always request Che as our waiter. He is the most personable and professional server ever! Knows the menu, makes great recommendations and adds the perfect element to dining out.
Sushi and curry are excellent. I have never had anything at this restaurant that I was not delicious. Quality in all aspects from ingredients to preparation to presentation.
Food was great, prices are reasonable. Good spot overall!
A four course meal, paired with wine, plus a very unique desert. Each dish was authentic and very good. Some Malaysian food can be very hot, border-line Thai hotness, which was paired with a semi-sweet white wine. The wine pairing dinners, which feature a different Southeast Asia country each time (Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, etc) are the best way to experience the expertise and authenticity at this restaurant.
Enjoyed a birthday lunch with friends. We each had a different dish & LOVED what we got! The edamame app was a wonderful surprise of flavors. And my banh mi sandwich was out of this world incredible! This place is a hidden gem that takes exotic dishes & makes them accessible to folks who aren't familiar with asian dishes. And for those of us who love asian food, it's an excellent take on so many dishes. Great meal & staff really nice!
We've eaten here several times when visiting Denver. This time it was OK but not great. Previously there was a definite wow factor, thus time no better than your typical neighborhood Chinese joint. Pad Thai ok but not particularly
outstanding. wife had green curry, wanted less spicy, server said solution was to add more coconut milk
Which was not a good approach. She declined the extra coconut and as a consequence it was overly
Spicy. They need to amp it up to regain previous cred.
There is a wide variety of Asian food representing a number of countries. The dishes seemed to be authentic. I lived and traveled in Asia. Street Kitchen Asian Bistro is nice change from the national chain restaurants.
Saturday 7pm is prime time. The restaurant was about a quarter full, which doesn't mean much, because most times we come here its not that full. But the food has always been good until tonight. The potstickers and spring rolls good. Tuna tartar was more rice than tuna. It's the first dish we ordered, and it came out after our meal. I think they ran out of tuna and were embarrassed to serve it. The tuna tartar is my favorite dish and I sometimes order that for my main meal. Very disappointing. Out of their desserts except for ice cream and cheesecake, which is pretty bad on a Saturday night so we ordered what they had left. 3 scoops of green tea ice cream and no cookies so we sent it back. I wish we would have also sent the tuna back.
Great food; unique selection. Very good service until last minute when waiting for check (late in evening) and could not find waitperson. Other than that, service was excellent
We once again enjoyed the monthly wine dinner and tried some new treats. The food/drink pairings were right on target.
Food was excellent as always...sat out on the patio with the gas fire blazing behind our table. Our server, Tara, was personable and made us feel right at home.
I have been to Street Kitchen many times and always leave pleased. I love the diversity of the menu and the fact it suits my families international tastes & palettes. In our group we have the guys have love their meat as well as vegetarians, and everyone always has a wide variety of dishes to choose from!
I start with my favorites every time; the Tom Kha Goong Soup & Passion Fruit Ice Tea and then explore new dishes on the menu. I am always delighted with the taste & the presentation.
The service is wonderful; friendly, polite and welcoming. I enjoy the open kitchen.
We went to this restaurant based on other reviews that had been posted. Glad we did! This place is great. It is small, was quiet when we were there, nice outdoor patio and indoor space. The menu is fun in that it provides foods from 5 different Asian countries and conveys which they are from. Food was great, service was fantastic.
Excellent last minute choice on a holiday Saturday night. Great menu and conscientious staff. We'll be back.
I love this place. I drive from broomfield to gio here. Love the wine dinners. Supurb service and food!
Fantastic Thai Basil Iced Tea!!
The food and service were exceptional. From appetizers to entrees , from sushi to an asian- inspired beef stew, the fare was perfectly spiced , quickly served and nutritionally balanced. BRAVO!
I love Street Kitchen, and return time after time. The food is remarkable and reasonably priced. The ambiance is clean and modern. The service is great. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, and also think it is well worth the short drive from Denver.
The food was unique and delicious and the service was fantastic.
By far the best place to eat in the DTC. It doesn't matter if it's lunch or dinner. Great for work lunches and family dinners. The food is fantastic and the staff is always top notch.
