Mediocre I guess? They have a mix of Thai, Korean, and Japanese. I got Pad Thai and the chicken was so dry I just picked it out and set it aside. Waitstaff were nice, but the food was really unremarkable. There are certainly better places in the Capitol area to go if you are craving Asian food.

I went to Kinnaree with my wife. We are both fans of Thai food, but we were both a little disappointed at the quality of the food and worse yet, my wife was quite sick afterward and I was mildly sick. My suggestion would be to find another place!

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
