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.

Great service - some good dishes

Service by host and server was attentive, prompt and knowledgeable. Tamarind margarita was small but good. Ordered the oyster and pork belly starter and was disappointed the fried oyster got soggy as it was left on the bottom of the plate with the sauce.

Really very unique, creative and fresh food. No matter the appetizer or main dish we were all amazed and shared everything. It was impossible to decide whose meal was better!

A constant on frequent trips to the city, Kin Shop provides a delicious and comfortable experience that is not often equalled. Unusual and amazing Thai fusion (I guess) food that keeps us returning again and again. Great value, caring service, brilliant food - what's more to ask?

My friends and I had a great meal here on a cold snowy night in August. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and we had a great meal with a bunch of curries that we shared. Overall, a great place and someplace I'll definitely visit again when I'm back in NYC.

The Thai inspired menu at this storefront spot on the edge of the West Village was a real taste treat. We started with Crispy Pork and Oyster Salad with celery, peanuts and a mint & chili-lime vinaigrette and Crispy Bok Choy Shoots with Chinese sausage, grilled peach chutney and plum vinaigrette. These were flavorful but mild choices from the menu.... More

It's not a fancy place, it's small, and always crowded. But it's not inexpensive. Seems like it should be because the place is so barebones, and not so terribly comfortable. However, the food is outstanding. No question it is delicious. I was introduced to it by a friend who knows food in New York City really well, a while back.... More

I had my best meal in New York City at the Kin Shop. The service was great, the food tasted great and I really enjoyed the wine from upstate NewYork. I will definitely come back to Kin Shop.

Thai aromas hit you in the face when you walk into this place. Greeted and seated professionally and closely attended to all night long. Menu is contemporary Thai and oh so tasty. The Goat Massaman curry is not as traditionally sweet but it is divine and the goat melts in your mouth. If you're ever a vego, my friend had... More

Kin Shop is one of our local favorites. We like to sit up at the chefs' bar, and watch our friends toil away. They even remember us. Dishes to return to include the grilled shrimp/prawn starter, the pork and oyster, the duck breast and roti, and the cold water prawn dish with an omelette on top. Duck laab can be... More

Staying in West Village

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.
