Excellent Pan-Asian

Often times I am skeptical of restaurants that do several types of cuisine. However, Kinnaree does everything very very well. Thai, Korean, whatever, I simply have never had a bad dish. We are always happy to return.

Kinnaree has the best curry noodle dish I have ever had. Just the right spiciness and the noodles are delicious. I used to eat here all the time but have moved out of New York State. But I had to stop here when I passed through Albany recently. I have also enjoyed their Korean food.

Great food and friendly staff. We had Korean food for the first time and really enjoyed it. The kids, who sometimes can be picky, also found things they liked.

Visited Kinnaree for first but hopefully not last time on evening when Lark street and side streets closed to parking due to an event. So we had to park quite a distance away and walk. Plenty to choose from the menu. We enjoyed delicious mango curry, dumplings, satay, and noodles. We enjoy both Korean and Thai food so this place... More

We have been coming to Kinnaree since it opened and it has continued to be one of our favorite restaurants in Albany. The food will outshine any other Thai restaurant in the area. The quality and portions are consistently above average. Their Korean food is also excellent. My husband tends to get the same items, but I have tried almost... More

The restaurant had announced on their Facebook page that they had updated their menu and added a number of new dishes. Having been more than pleased with any dish served to us in the past, I couldn't wait to try something new. I started with the Crispy Fish With Herbs ($10) which is listed with the salads - Crispy Tilapia... More

Ate dinner with my wife and son. Restaurant is located in a close to downtown neighborhood of apartment buildings and store fronts. A visitor to Albany from a small town in Ohio - in one word, I would describe the neighborhood as shabby - but there was nothing shabby about the Kinnaree - tastefully decorated and clean carpet. The young... More

I've been disappointed with Thai food in the area several times. Restaurants were either overpriced, bland, or tried to serve too large/diverse menu unsuccessfully. Kinnaree did not fall into any of these traps, though! My wife and I both tried curry dishes - Green curry fried rice and the half fried duck. Both were spicy, tasty, and full of a... More

The Pad Thai and the Drunken Noodles dishes here are excellent, so I decided to try some of the things that I was not familiar with. The Goong Salong appetizer ($7.95) is a really fun dish - shrimp surrounded by these crispy noodles makes you wonder how they were able to even create such a cool presentation. They are served...

Delicious, fresh thai and vietnamese food. I've been here a couple of times with my husband and daughter and everyone is always so happy with their meals. They have the best ginger tea. Highly recommend!
