Description: 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.

We made a res at Kin Shop before jazz one Sunday nite in the village. The restaurant was very welcoming and pleasant, and the service (by a waitress) was excellent and informative. We had many questions for her and she was able to answer all of them. Our meal was excellent, and I would recommend the four condiments with a... More

I liked that the servers were excellent! The food was amazing and they had several gluten free options. My friends enjoyed a tasting menu paired with wine and had a wonderful evening. So much they invited me to go with for another meal before our trip was complete.

We ate at this restaurant about 2 years ago and loved it so we wanted to return during a recent trip to the city. Although we had a nice table near the front window, the noise level got really high during our meal. The menu is very limited, so I wound up ordering the same entree I had 2 years... More

Still looking to try good SEAsian food in NY (Pok Pok here I come) This was perfectly pleasant The Khao Suey though good missed the drama of the real thing (no multiple bowl of condiments to mix in) Its an interpretation and a well executed interpretation of SE Asian food The service was excellent and the ambience a lovely retreat...

I attended a birthday dinner of 9 guests seated between the glass partitions. Not having a vast knowledge of Thai food, I was blown away by all the different flavors in each dish. They put together a wonderful sampling menu and I was so fortunate to taste many dishes in one evening! The crispy roti with a tasting of condiments... More

Had dinner with two girlfriends recently, my 4th or 5th visit, the first for one of us. We all enjoyed our meals. They both had the roasted monkfish dish while I stuck with their braised goat. The goat is so delicious that it is really hard not to order it every time. The menu is carefully curated with the freshest... More

We always enjoy our experience at Kin Shop. Harold D has done a great job bringing Thai street food to NYC. This restaurant has a neighborhood feel but with a contemporary upscale twist. Simple interior, friendly wait staff and most importantly fantastic flavors. The thai shrimp are spicy and fresh. The peanut noodles light and decadent. The fried broccoli were... More

I've eaten at Kin Shop a couple of times. One of the pleasures is a menu that escapes from the cliches of the run-of-the-mill Thai. Kin Shop has a contemporary twist, and in a good way. It references Thai classics and Thai street food, while offering something fresh. Recommended.

I had the Lunch Express ($15). It offers choices, and I chose Papaya salad, jasmine rice, and a goat curry. Everything was fresh and tasty. They also offer Hitachino Nest red ale, an excellent match for fresh Thai food.

I took my wife here for Valentine's Day. We have hit the best Thai places in NYC, but had never been here. My wife was skeptical but ended up saying it was one of the best meals she ever had. In fact, she came back a couple weeks later with one of her girlfriends. Expect to see more exotic dishes... More
