Hi Jack C Thanks a million for your review. My staff in the kitchen and on the floor work real really hard and they are all "into" Kin Khao's food. So a comment such as yours makes it worthwhile for us.

A good location. My partner and I visited here recently. We just had the traditional Thai curries. Mine with Chicken, hers with beef.

Too much sauce ( red and green) and not enough beef or chicken. The dish was tasty. So was the price when you add the rice and the beer.
The other problem was the tables were too close together. We were squashed into the bottom half of the restaurant while the top half was empty.

It's a shame because this place exudes class and just needs a bit of management and lay out.

Hi Martimo

Thanks for the feedback and thanks for coming into Kin Khao. In response to your comments, I'm not sure when you were in but yes it is alittle strange that you were seated at the end of the restaurant of the restaurant if the top part was empty. The only reason for this would have been is if there was a booking for that part of the restaurant. Sorry about that!

When an order for curry is placed the same amount of ingredients goes into each and every dish. The comment I get from customers is that there is sometimes too much food in our portions. With Thai food the flavours of the sauces and the other ingredients, including the meats, meld together to give that unique taste. Thai dishes are not supposed to be overflowing with any one particular ingredient including the chicken or the beef.

With regard to the rice - this is one of the most expensive items to purchase. The price of rice on the world market is up there with gold and oil. The prices charged by our suppliers increased five times in 2012. Like most of our other ingredients, prices have remained painfully high even though we are in a recession and one would expect prices to fall. Kin Khao Thai has not changed its prices in five years even though the cost of doing business has risen. If you compare our prices to other similar restaurants in Athlone you will see that we are reasonably priced. There are always establishments who will appear to sell food very cheap. Like the recent horse meat saga, there is a price to pay for cheap ingredients.

I do appreciate anyone who takes the time to send me comments so again thanks for visiting us and for the feedback.
