The meal was tasty enough but a bit too chinese/thai takeout than a really good thai dining experience. Don't get me wrong we enjoyed the meal but not enough for it to stick in memory. The food itself is of good quality I just think there could be more options on the menu to make it a bit different.

Really fancied a Thai, so booked Yindees. Have to say the food was very average, don't think I would go back here if I was in Kilkenny again.

Wine list is limited, but adequate. Beer list is pretty good with at least dozen bottled beers from 4 corners of the world available. The restaurant has a... More

We just missed the early bird menu but stayed on despite the hefty pricing on the menu. I was expecting great things from the small menu with big prices. Firstly we were welcomed warmly but that didn't last, I felt like once they had seated us and taken our order that we were ignored. We were never asked how our... More
