    Excellent food. Panang curry was stupendous as all the reviews have said, and drunken noodles were delicious. Daniel was excellent server. Thai tea was a little too sweet, but I still ordered 2!

    Had to ask for me a drink twice and for my companion 3 times. Waiter seemed to have zero memory of my companion having asked for a drink. But, as always when I have gone before, the food was good and served timely. (The seating is a bit tight. It would be better if there was one less table on the long wall so people could have conversation that did not have to include the tables beside them - but it is clear this is because they are very busy.) Also, the singer is always excellent. Really enjoy her music.

    Amazing food and service. There was live music and the volume made it difficult to communicate. Not sure the live music is a positive add to the experience. I’ll be back but will avoid the live music

    My wife selected the restaurant to celebrate her birthday. I am very disappointed that no one acknowledged her birthday. Service was average. We had to ask for our water to be refilled. The food was good but a bit over priced. We spent over $80 for lunch for two.

    The food here looked amazing online, so I drove all the way from Sugar Land to try it. Everything we ordered was lacking flavor. Everything. Thought it was me, but my cousin said the same thing. Like I said, it looks good it just needs seasoning, spice, or more ingredients like onion or garlic.

    Came here for a casual graduation dinner and it was fantastic! The service was wow, amazing! We were immediately seated (we came in on a Thursday evening at 7:30pm) but booked reservations just in case. There was some seating still available when we walked in but it was a little busy so I would recommend making a reservation if you're driving a far distance, just in case. The food and drinks were great! I tried their beautiful and tasty Purple Rain drink, which I will certainly have next time I visit. Great refreshing drink, perfect for summer time. As for appetizers, we had the "All In One" appetizer which was great since it was a variety and every piece of that platter was absolutely delicious. The money bags, wow! A bag of tasty joy. Main dish - I tried the stir fried glass noodles and it was okay. It wasn't bad! Truly, but I have had tastier noodles. Not that I wouldn't eat this dish again but I would certainly give another dish a try during my next visit. Overall the service was great, never went with a dry mouth since our waiter and waitress were so good at making sure we had water and had everything we needed/wanted at the table. Also just a heads up! There was a live singer the evening of our visit, which I truly didn't mind since they had a lovely voice and sang all the classic and new 'bops'. There is outdoor seating in case you want to steer away from the noise but if you enjoy an angels voice the indoor seating is perfect to enjoy live music (singing).

    Table next to me was dirty. Staff ignore me I had a wave to get attention. Pad Thai salad asked for it spicy it came out plain. Chicken satay didn’t taste good. This was my fourth time and will be the last time for a while. The staff really sucks . The three other time was good. I feel you have to change your management team. Very disappointed.

    This used to be one of our favorite places to eat yet the food quality has gone down and more disturbing is the price of the food! The prices have dramatically risen in the last few months. It's not a good value for the food. Smaller portions and just not as tasty as they used to make their food.

    Visiting family and they suggested this restaurant since they’d never been. Very busy so we made a reservation and were seated out on the covered front porch. Very uncomfortable sagging cushion bench seats just fyi. Good service and great menu. Penang curry was not what we expected. Having been to Thailand we expected something similar. It was super watery and had no flavor. Drunken noodles with tofu were very good!

    Service was good, prices were pretty reasonable during happy hour, but the plates were much smaller than they appeared in pictures on your website and menu. We would like to come back but next time will ask for hotter food, the dishes were much less spicy than expected, based on other reviews and the waiter's comments. Singer came on just before we left and she was pretty good, did not stay long enough to evaluate very well.

    I have been coming to Kin Dee since it opened almost weekly and they never disappoint. The food and especially the cocktails are always on point. Sonny is a fantastic bartender and a lovely person to sit at the bar and chat with while enjoying a nice weekday solo meal. My favorites dishes are the crab fried rice and the Thai basil chicken.

    Celebrating early Mother’s Day. Good food, excellent service, though it was brunch time, but the menu was not limited to brunch item only. Very happy with the experience. Love the Northern style curry and roti. Purple flower dumplings and pork skewers are a must for appetizers!
