Had an absolutely incredible meal tonight! The food was so good - southern style green curry and Penang curry. Finished off with a favourite of mine - mango sticky rice. Although the restaurant was full tonight, the service was fantastic. The atmosphere was great - enjoyed the live music. Thanks to Daniel for looking after us and ensuring we had a great evening. Can't wait to go back again.

My daughter and I were in town and we both love Thai. Popped up on my GPS as 5 Star Thai. My favorite thing was the unique touches they added to the traditional. We enjoyed Flower Dumplings which were a purple-blue color and filled with a crushed peanut mix. Served with cilantro and hot peppers. Then I also had Butterfly tea which is navy but turns pink-purple when you add the lime. Super tasty tea and not nearly as sweet as Thai iced which for me is good. It was a beautiful space and great service!!! When we go back to Houston we would definitely eat here again!!!

Everything was delicious. I introduced my friend who loves Thai food to this place today. She loved it! We had the money bags and purple dumplings for starters - delicate, beautiful, and flavorful! Then we had the Thai basil chicken (get the hot level if you like that Thai heat on your food) and shrimp panang curry for our main meal - perfect! And we tried the Thai ice tea creme brulee - tasted just like the tea but better! Coming back and bringing more friends. Want to try the drink menu and listen to the live music.

Love Kin Dee Thai! Indoor ambience is great, and they have bands on select days. Outdoor patio is away from traffic and is very nice. We had Panang shrimp, Tom Yum soup, Pad Ke Mao, and papaya salad. They provided my favorite dessert - mango sticky rice, on the house when they found out it was my birthday. The overall experience was fantastic. Definitely will be back.

The food here was delicious. The service was excellent, Sunny was GREAT. The reason for 4 stars, instead of 5, is that the entire place could have used a good tidy.

If could give zero stars I would. I have no idea how the food is since was never served. Not sure how this place stays open with such poor service. We were seated and never acknowledged for 30 minutes so we left. Very disappointing as this was to be our nice Christmas meal. With such terrible service I give them a year tops to remain open. They should be removed from Open Table.

We made a reservation for Christmas Day. We knew the food was good after choosing them for takeout during the pandemic. Sat in the bar and enjoyed some amazing and unique cocktails before dinner. It looked like a good mix of regulars and first timers. After dinner, there was a DJ, which added a great vibe. Truly a one-of-a-kind place in the Heights. We will be back.

A beautiful well designed menu. The star was extremely knowledgeable and provided guidance the whole way. If you want to sit outside I'd suggest not sitting in the covered outdoor seating. It's right on a busy street and way to noisy for conversation. Otherwise, I loved it and will definitely be back.

I love this place and its top-notch Thai cuisine. I’ve had two visits this month and tonight had a live DJ! I enjoyed the Thai flower dumplings (5/5), the appetizer sampler (5/5), and the drunken noodles (4/5) for being light on shrimp. Get the reservation, this place was packed!

They were having some issues with their computer system when we were then, which impacted the timeliness of service. However, they were so kind and accommodating and were working so hard on a very busy Friday night, I can't see dinging them on service. The food was fabulous - fresh and flavorful.

We went there for a low-key anniversary dinner and we're very happy. They're cocktails are delicious and unique, not too pricey as well. The food itself was really delicious. There was live music that really added to the ambience without being too loud. Service was good to. We would definitely go back.

Celebrated birthday dinner here for first time with family. Cute place, very stylish and the treat was we had great live music!! We were told usually only Tuesday nite there’s live music but this Sunday nite we received a wonderful treat on my birthday. Food was excellent- the Northern Coconut chicken was so tasty and my husband and I split it and still had leftovers to take home. Loved the Putple Rain cocktail!!
