Sweet but no fun

The place is located in old city. Interiors were nice but more like a bar and not restaurant. If you like comfortable sitting place, it's not one of those. Chairs were just okay and not for dining but maybe drinks. Food was really good, large portion, good presentation. We took curry soup, duck... read more

Self service restaurant (you order at the counter and are served at the table). The food is moderately priced and tasty enough, but absolutely nothing special. Cocktails are big and not very good.

They start a timer when you walk up to the counter. My husband got his curry at 5 minutes and I got my pad thai at 7 and a half. Flavor wise, we were not overly impressed, but prices were very reasonable and the food was fresh.

We walked by Kittichai and decided to stop in on a whim as we were quite hungry. The staff were very helpful, particularly as the menu is only in German and the food is delicious. Far better and lighter than a Thai restaurant that we went to on the previous night. Great for a quick stop!

I've been there a couple of times because I loved it. The variety of dishes is great, although most of them are based on more or less the same things, with little twists. The value-for-money is great. I will definitely return.

We ate an earlier dinner here. Kittichai is a semi-full service restaurant, meaning you seat yourself and order from a counter but are delivered your food. The menu was only in German and not being able to read/speak German proved a bit of an obstacle. Luckily, most meals translate the same and I just had to ask for assistance with... More

Food was good but staff was very rude. Lack of hospitality skills!!!!! We asked for a dish which was mentioned with 'mixed vegetables' in menu. They got us meal with egg in it. Since we are pure vegetarians we could not have it. We asked them to change it as egg was not mentioned in menu details. They were very... More

During our last visit to Cologne, we walked the entire day and our feet couldn't be forced to take any more steps, that is the reason why we ended up in this restaurant coz it was right outside the parking garage where we had our car. It was a blessing though coz we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The place has... More

Kittichai is between a trendy bar with loud music, flat screens with fashion program and an asiatic restaurant. The place has a nice terasse in a small street and is worth having some drinks (happy hour 17h-23h) but I would not recommend the food. The taste is not right and is not really asian style. Chinese spring rolls are fried... More

I LOVE a cute, clean little place that serves fresh asian-style food at a fair price. Kittichai is exactly that. The Vegetarian Tofu in Chili-Peanut sauce was great and definately a plate full, for only €6,40. Cocktails are cheap, but they lack balance and are often too acidic, sweet, or strong. Considering it is not a 'real' cocktail bar, I... More
