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.

I came here yesterday eve with a friend. This place is bustling! Really liked the food. We had the pork and shrimp fritters, fried spicy brusselsprouts with Chinese sausage and as a main we shared the brisket curry. The food was definitely different and very good. The only thing I didn't like was that we were rushed to leave as... More

Food was very tasty especially the duck lettuce wraps and the goat curry. Not easy to find good goat curry but this was very good. Nice service and friendly vibe will definitely go back.

My nephew who lives and works in NYC recommended this restaurant! Very authentic Thai - never had anything like it! I can't even describe what we had as I had my nephews order for me - but I must say everything was fresh and delicious - worth every penny and not real expensive - I'd go back again - service...

Apparently the owner/chef is off of some reality TV cooking thing. Being from the UK we have no idea who they are. But we can say that the food speaks for itself. Delicious, melt-in-mouth massaman goat curry, well spiced and well portioned. Beef curry was an intriguing delight. Sticky rice, a recommended house special, was also great. Very difficult to...

My friends & I tried 6 dishes on a recent Sat. nite. The restaurant is attractive and the staff very friendly and good at their jobs. 3 or 4 of the dishes were outstanding, memorable: roti app, octopus and brisket khao soi mains, and lime ice cream sundae. The cauliflower main was right up there. Pad thai, something I've had... More

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. The duck red curry is not your traditional bowl of curry but a breast served w... 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.
