My wife and I enjoy Thai Food and we spotted Yindees whilst driving through Kilkenny. We decided to visit it on our last night of the holiday and were not disappointed. Although we hadn't booked we were promptly shown to a table, given complimentary crackers and dip and our orders taken. I opted for the early bird menu, the Chicken... More

We arrived at Yindees without a reservation but were kindly accommodated. I had potato and pumpkin cakes to start and prawn stir fry for mains - all very good. We were too full for dessert but the table next to us had some amazing chocolate cake that looked divine. Delicious food, lovely staff, nice atmosphere and good location.

We had a lovely meal in Yindees which was very tasty and made to order. Good value for money in terms of quality of food, service and surroundings. Children also welcome which is most refreshing.
