We went there for a family dinner w 2 kids ages 4 and 5yrs. The service was fine but the kitchen was a bit slower than other Thai places of a similar outdoor standard. In open air local places I expect food to start hitting the table almost within a few minutes of ordering. Local kitchens are normally just a... More

Prompted by other reviews we ordered food from Kin Dee which was delivered to our door by a friendly young lady. Food was delicious and plates, plastic cutlery and change were supplied. Food was hot and portions generous. Also cheaper than many of the other restaurants we patronised.

Easy going staff serving beautiful Thai food in a jungle setting! Probably a third of what you'd pay at Marriott and Co around the corner, well worth ordering from your room or better, dropping by for lunch of finer.

Been here several times. The food is allways very good. It's traditional thai food. The restaurant is in the middle of the "jungle". Very good atmosphere... Maybe the best restaurant visit ever...

Even though it's a bit difficult to get to the restaurant, it's worth. The whole restaurant is on the big terrace, looking over the lake (let's say lake), but since I was there in the evening and it was dark, I'm not sure about the view. The food, the most important think in every restaurant is very very tasteful. There's... More

Really enjoyed dinner here last night, our first dinner in Mai Khao. Service warm, genuine and enthusiastic. Had Steamed fish, Pad Thai, Chicken Curry and best Spring Rolls and Chicken Satay. Remember to take insect repellant!

Ate lunch here with the family. The food was delicious - authentic Thai home cooked dishes. We ordered their specialty, the whole fish with a whole lot of Thai spices and seasoning. The fried prawn with pepper leaves and calamari were light and tasty. For dessert, we had the mango sticky rice which was equally tasty.

Excellent food, attentive staff, and a really first class place to go. Set on the edge of a river surrounded by unusual trees with huge roots. You can, if you wish choose your fish which you might want to eat. We had Bream, and a Thai chicken dish with delicious pineapple rice. Started with spring rolls and ended with fried... More

Staying in a Mai Khao may not have much economical options without travel. Here is where Kin Dee can help. They deliver free if you are near. We had two perfect delivered dinners warm and ready to eat. Not to mention the quality is just the same as what you get in the restaurant. Taste wise it is good for... More

Value for money. Unfortunately getting there requires taxi service at 500 baht for a round trip which adds to the cost of the meal. Otherwise, wholesome home cooking, local cuisine as it should be, not a watered down version for the foreigner. Nice alfresco ambience, overlooking a small stream. Should try at least once if you're at Mai Khao area.
