    Expensive and forgettable

    Nothing here justifies the hefty prices. We spent $50 alone on three small appetizers, one being greasy bread, roti. If it had been fried at the correct temperature, it wouldn't have been so oily. None of the flavors meshed or tasted very sophisticated which is what we expected. Nothing had flare. Many dishes seems sloppily thrown together or reheated. A disappointing experience with a large price tag. If this place ever was shining star, it's fallen. Forgettable other than the shocking price.

    Mediocre and overpriced

    We ate here twice and we're disappointed with food both times. Food was bland, many seemed like they had been microwaved and others too spicy. Dinner. For two was $100 without wine. Roti was very greasy, dripping oil and under cooked, they charged an extra $6 for dipping jams which were nothing special , kale and watermelon salad looked old and wilted and tasted bland and off. Prawns were over cooked, dry and bland. Crab cake was ok but way overpriced. Mushroom noodle special was also bland and an odd combo of seasoning. Waste of money on mediocre food that seemed reheated.

    Just. Wow!

    A friend has been recommending Kin Shop since it opened, but I never got there until a few nights ago. My guest and I were pretty much blown away by the perfect blending of flavors, varied in each dish. Shiso leaves added just the right grassy touch to a lovely raw fluke preparation. My salad of pork belly and crispy oysters had a multitude of flavors, not all identifiable but all exciting. I rarely order fried rice, but my calamari dish had me yearning to order a second helping. Our waiter was attentive, informative, and seemingly sincerely anxious to make sure that we were enjoying the meal (which, needless to say, we were). The room is definitely nothing special, and the noise level is deafening, but I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to try a wonderful new twist on Thai.

    Warning!

    Not really a negative review, but for those who have shellfish allergies, the housemade curry, which is in almost all of their dishes have shellfish. My wife was only able to choose from two dishes and two appetizers when we went. The brussel sprouts were great, and we enjoyed the meatball soup, but our entrees weren't good and definitely not what we would have chosen to eat. I did put her allergy concerns in our reservation. I think more effort should be made by Kin Shop to let people know that the majority of their dishes have shellfish, despite the ingredients not appearing so, prior to coming in.

    Don't listen to the Haters

    I was surprised when I read some of the comments below. Kin Shop is creative, interesting and cutting-edge on the flavor front. No one else in the city is making food like this. As for the prices, I don't think the hater reviewers are from NYC, or they wouldn't be so surprised by the pricing. It's a great deal for the $ and worth every penny. Chef Dieterle hits it out of the park again and again! Some highlights are the scallop appetizer and the duck laab salad. Everything was delicious. I'll be back!

    Amazing food, great flavors!

    I went here on a recommendation for a casual dinner with a friend. We sat at the bar as we dropped in without a reservation. The service was gracious and unpretentious. The food, however, was the real star! Each and every dish we had was memorable and phenomenal. I was wary of this place after reading some of the reviews, since in my book there's really nothing worse than mediocre yet pretentious Asian fusion cuisine. Make no mistake though, this place is something special. We shared the squid ink and sesame oil soup, the pork meatball soup, the spicy market corn, and the brisket noodle curry. The soups were standouts. The broths were delicate, with new and unexpected flavors that were nevertheless perfectly balanced. The pork meatballs were fluffy and tender. The corn was surprisingly tangy and spicy - definitely not a throwaway. The curry was also excellent: salty and sour (surprising, but perfectly done) with succulent chunks of melting brisket. The noodles were served separately on a plate and looked pretty gross but turned out to be delicious, soft and tender. All in all, we got to taste four dishes, and our check was under $66 including tax and tip. I have spent that much on so many mediocre, bland meals, Asian and otherwise. This was a real treat and I my friend and I agreed we will definitely be going back again and again. Highly recommended.
