    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.

    Weak!

    Mediocre fancified Thai food at best. A couple of dishes were tasty but, most bland and unmemorable, and some downright horrendous. The ribs were absolutely unappetizing. On top of that it's way overpriced for food that would be good, so a total rip off considering the quality. Atmosphere is nice enough but not worth a visit.

    Wow, there are some disappointing reviews on here...

    ...but this isn't one of them. From the minute I walked in, everyone was really nice. Granted, it was a rainy, Monday night and people are not out in full force. Tables were all full anyway but snagged the chef's table. Every morsel of food was amazing, (except one which I'll get to in a bit), inventive, surprising, flavorful and fresh. I could not say more about it. Scallops and snow peas, short rib noodle soup, triggerfish in green curry, duck, sticky rice, all sublime. Couldn't even say which was the best dish. But while the duck's flavor was fab with the mint and basil and side of roti (inventive again), the waiter said Medium rare? when we ordered and we said, more medium please, sorry. Well, it came quacking. I know this is THEIR restaurant and they want to serve the food the way it's intended to be served, but when you ask for something and get the complete opposite, it's just rude. We all tried it, but it was the only dish that had any food left on the plate. Not even rare, just inedible. And that's just wrong. Otherwise, a food treat for all the senses, even touch, as I ended up picking at the sticky rice for "dessert" with my fingers. Incredible food. And they give you a taste of the wine before you order the whole glass, which is downright classy. Have to restrain from eating there once a week.
