exciting Thai food

Visited with family including a baby. The atmosphere is rustic and the food is excellent authentic Thai. The menu gives a wide variety of choices and you can advise the level of 'hotness'. Beware - Spicy is really hot. Too difficult to find by walking - better to take a taxi.

We were staying in the J W Marriot close by with friends who had been to the resort last year, on their advice we went to Kin Dee. The food was excellent, the location was like something out of a film (by no means flash, just magical) the lady who owns, runs and appears to be the main chef is... More

We are staying in the nearby Marriott complex and this was recommended as a good local restaurant. Whilst it might be possible to walk, glad we booked a taxi as it is quite a way off the dual carriageway down a dark lane. Reception by staff was friendly and menu is in English. I chose the signature fish dish which... More

After reading review we decided to take the cooking class. I emailed Ton and recommended some dishes we liked, curry chicken, Lobster, rice. She created a menu around our wished. We made a garlic pepper lobster, pineapple rice, green curry chicken and tom yum soup. It was all excellent and she was lots of fun and very informative. Highly recommended.

I found this on trip advisor and it is a gem. Super nice people, amazing food - authentic and great quality. Loved the local decor. The bill was reasonable too. Best Thai food we have ever had.

On the recommendation of fellow guests at our resort we made the 8 minute taxi trip to Kin Dee on highway 402 not far from the Sarasen Bridge control point. Driving down a country lane off the highway about 500 metres to a rustic building with a mixture of teak table and chairs on a balcony floor and modest local... More

Whenever we use our timeshare here at the Marriott Beach Club, we make it a point to try local restaurants in the area. Kin Dee has been a favourite but that has changed today.
