Description: Kin Shop is a contemporary Thai restaurant opened by Chef Harold Dieterle...
Kin Shop is a contemporary Thai restaurant opened by Chef Harold Dieterle and Alicia Nosenzo. The duo chose the name, Kin Shop, because “kin,” is the Thai word for “to eat” and the restaurant is the “kin” to their acclaimed restaurant Perilla, a mere seven-minute walk away. Kin Shop’s menu features both contemporary reinterpretations of traditional Thai dishes and wholly new items inspired by Thai ingredients. Complementing Kin Shop’s menu (which is meant to be shared), are Thai-influenced specialty cocktails, a 75-label, spice-friendly international wine list with many bottles priced under $50, and a diverse globe-spanning selection of beers, many from small, craft producers. The casual, but polished setting features comfortable banquettes, a long granite bar, and a chef’s counter for walk-in dining with a front-row view.

Delicious contemporary Thai food

This modern and artful twist on Thai flavors is outstanding. While the restaurant is small an unpretentious, the food is great.

ate here tonight with two friends. Lovely, small place in West Village. Started with the land salad which was delicious, spicy and served on two pancakes with a terrific green sauce. Unique and flavorful and a nice appetizer for three. Then shared the the Chicken Khao Soi and another Chicken and pineapple dish in a green curry sauce. Excellent and... More

6:30 dinner reservation got us a quiet spot. By 7:00 the place was hopping. Great food and drinks. The food really had great flavors and something to consider with each bite. Will return again with friends who appreciate flavors.

I give a lot of ratings of 5 and I wish I could rate this place higher than a 5--it was that good. I now understand what all the hype is about Top Chef. We visited during restaurant week and ordered from the prix fixe menu. I was blown away by the deliciousness of the food. I started with a... More

Decided to try Kin Shop's $15 prix fixe.lunch and glad we did. Being a Top Chef fan, it was fun to dine at a restaurant owned by a Top Chef winner. We got there slightly before the restaurant opened, but given it was a cold, wintry NYC day, we were seated right away. The lunch special offers a nice selection... More

This restaurant is in a great location in the Village. I stopped in for lunch and ate at the bar. Loved the coconut iced tea! Try the Express Set lunch - choose a starter, entree, and side for $15. I chose the pork meatball soup (which was AMAZING), mushroom drunken noodles (very good) and crispy roti (also very good). Great,... More

I don't watch top chef but this was suggested by the friend I was meeting up with and it was really really good. We had no problem getting a reservation although that might have been an anomaly bc we went out on a Monday night. Also the staff and kitchen were super accommodating - my friend had to get up...

I am a Top Chef fan and it was a dream to dine at one of Harold Dieterle's (winner of Season 1) restaurants...my wait was not in vain. This tiny little restaurant is quietly decorated and presents a very zen-like atmosphere. Our waiter talked us through the menu and made excellent suggestions. I suggest the roti bread with the Thai... More

The Kin Shop is a taste sensation! I loved it. One of top 5 restaurants in NYC. I love flavor and I love spice and this place was made for me. We began with an excellent drink called Slow Burn, then had appetizers of Crispy Roti and a condiment tasting menu. We also ordered a spicy duck salad, which was... More

After coffee and the Sunday Times, we spent a morning walking through Manhattan. By early afternoon, we found ourselves in the West Village and ready for something to eat. We had two recommendations to try Kin Shop. It was nearby, so we went in. The menu offered an 'express' lunch - choice of one starter, one side, and one entrée... More

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
