    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.

    Excellent!

    Every dish was better than the one before! We got seated right away at a nice table toward the back of the restaurant and the service from that moment on was great. For two of us, we ordered 3 apps and each selected a main course. My fish was incredible, my fiance's noodle dish was very good. I highly recommend Kin Shop for a casual night out or for a nicer saturday night date night.

    Every bite exquisite!

    This is not your standard Thai blob of food over rice. It's in a category by itself. I love regular Thai food, but Kin Shop elevates it to a new level. Every ingredient tastes like the freshest and best. Like everyone else, I'm still raving about the oyster salad, each flavorful bivalve every so lightly breaded and fried, gaining extra crunch with the tiny slivers of celery and a dash of piquant from bits of pickled onion. The goat's neck, yes, yes YES! The snapper forces me to take back ever calling this fish boring. Deserts are limited to ice cream and sorbet. But once you've had Thai Iced Tea Ice Cream, you'll be too spoiled to ever eat that green tea kind again. Beyond just offering a broad range of choices, it felt like this menu was curated to include the best of the best. I've been there twice and found none of the attitude mentioned in other reviews. The first time, we were 20 minutes late and found out that they don't hold a reservation after 15 minutes. But they found us a table anyway. The second time, my BF mistakenly made the reservation for the wrong day, and still they worked us in. I don't recommend pressing your luck like that. Just make a reservation and stick to it. The waiters were attentive without hovering. My only complaint is that the music was a bit loud. But overall -- Wow!

    Who do they think they are?

    Everyone working here acts like they are chosen people. Zero hospitality. This is after all a medicore Thai spot. Not sure the big appeal.

    rude host, food ok

    the "hostess" was extremely rude an unpleasant,.when i walked in she just stared at me and gave me an impatient look as if i should speak first, no welcome. when i told her i had a reservation, she asked me where the other person was, and i said she was just a couple blocks away, and she replied, "do you know WHEN she will be here?" rude. the food was fine, but overpriced. steak tartare was delicious, the massaman goat too fatty and pork/oyster salad decent. the waiter never brought me a drink i asked for, and then charged me for it, which he obviously removed from the bill. i dont mind paying for good food, but it's ridiculous to charge an extra $3 for a side of white rice to accompany the already overpriced thai food. white rice should be included, period.

    avoid

    The atmosphere is lovely, so if you feel you can eat that, enjoy, because this is the most onerously priced Thai restaurant I've ever encountered. When I saw the prices I had to think they thought they were opening an haute cuisine French venue. Thai food is a simple food that should not be this expensive. They obviously have some obscenely high lease there and are passing the cost on to us, because the food does not warrant the pricing. Many in the Village feel the need for a decent Thai place that isn't afraid to spice authentically, but we don't need to spend $60 for a meal after drinks and tip, at least not for Thai food.
