If Asian street food is what you crave, then KIN in London’s Clerkenwell is the very thing. The KIN kitchen offers authentic pan-Asian street food from Thailand, Japan, China and Vietnam, among others. KIN’s ethos is simple, fresh and healthy – with lots of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. The drinks list complements everything perfectly as it includes a good selection of craft beers, artisan teas, Vietnamese coffee as well as wines from emerging vineyards. The décor is casual and smart, with stripped brick walls and wooden floors, white paint and vibrant detailing. This stylish air conditioned spot is relaxed and welcoming, a delight among street food restaurants in general.

The food is great, but the management has gone south. The staff seemed over anxious to clear our table literally 15 minutes after they brought the food out. Thereafter we felt like we were being asked to leave every five minutes. The icing on the cake was when they turned on bright lights at 1015pm (when the kitchen was supposed to close at 1030pm) and we literally had to step over a Hoover to get out. Terrible service - never going back there. What a shame with such good food!

Good Thai food, some classic dishes done really well with interesting flavours, all cooked wonderfully. Would advise sharing mains if it's an option as they are large and it's nice to give everything a try. They also catered for my girlfriend who cannot deal with spice at all, which is nice.

Food and ambiance was great but was just a shame that a lot of things weren’t available from the menu. Would still return and hopefully be able to try some dishes that weren’t available.

Reduced menu but not told before hand only found out when already sat at the table so what we were planning to order wasn’t available, we’re only offering one noodle dish and 4 fish dishes. No apology or anything given.

Great Thai food, super down to earth and chilled out place. A great place for a tasty lunch or dinner. Beware, they do make their food spicy (well I think so anyways) so I always of for the mild version for the Pad Krapao with pork which I highly recommend! Also try the Thai Iced Tea - perfect for summer :)

Food was lovely as always. Service was a little slower than usual and had to ask twice for our second drinks to come. The staff did apologise and then deducted them from the bill which was a nice gesture which I did not expect. Overall another lovely lunch.

It was my third visit to KIN and once again I loved it. The service was fantastic and the staff explained their Covid safety measures on arrival. The food was delicious, I particularly enjoyed the veggie wontons. Our booking was for 2 hours but we were allowed to stay much longer. I also had a query about an ingredient which I emailed after the visit and I received a speedy and helpful response. Top marks, will be back again soon!

Restaurant had a nice ambience and the staff were attentive and polite. However the food was extremely unremarkable - almost no spice at all even on their 'spicy' dishes, and the overall flavours seemed muddled together. Very much seemed designed to be inoffensive to western palettes and not very authentic.

It was a nice atmosphere and the service was very good. The food was good and tasty but bland. From our experience with other Thai restaurants, this wasn't spicy enough for us.
There wasn't a menu for kids, so we chose a side for our son.
We were sat on the street and I didn't feel very safe as some cars were rushing through.
A good experience but I don't think we will return unfortunately as there are so many other options in London, we are spoilt for choice...
