“Good food but lacks authentic Thai flavour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The restaurant is situated right behind Dutch Hospital in a white colonial building. On the second floor waits a huge sitting area and plenty of tables so no need to book ahead. Kinnaree lacks the ambiance of a Thai place which partly could be explained by the interior which isn’t very typical Thailand.

In regards of the menu it is quite big and contains items which you expect to find in a Thai joint but nothing more than that. You can get a Singha to wash down the spicey food with. As a main course I tried the whole fish (garupa) and it was quite a catch! A huge perfectly cooked fish with a simple non spicy lemon/coriander sauce. Ingested with ease since the meat is simple to peal of from the bone.

To summarize this place offers decent food but doesn’t live up to its full potential given its location. Worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood and hungering for Thai.

“Not the best Thai place in town”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

This restaurant is done by the same owners of another good thai restaurant in colombo. Unfortunately the two are worlds apart. The food is very average and the selection is not very good.

The staff are friendly and thats about the only good thing you can get from this place. Try Siam house which is owned and run by the same company. The food there is much better.

There are many restaurants that say they serve thai food, but its only at Kinnaree that you will find the authentic thai food.The prices are not that expensive. but its well worth a visit.

“Good value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Was at dinner with friends on the 31st December. The interior of the restaurant is tasteful, and they have preserved the look of the old building well. There is a variety on the menu and the food and service is good. The prices are very reasonable as the total bill for 3 (we did not consume liquor) came to approx US$50. Worth a visit.
