KIN is a very enjoyable PanKIN is a very enjoyable Pan Asian restaurant. It has quite a few of the typical noodle and curry dishes you would expect as well as some excellent specials, and tasty side dishes. Everything we ordered was really tasty and I'd thoroughly recommend it. Will go back.09/05/2013 00:00:00Great service and top food!Booked a table for 10 at KIN for my birthday and had a very enjoyable experience. For groups of over 8 a set menu is recommended which includes a starters platter, main and icecream for £15. The starters were delicious and there was plenty to go round, with lots of dipping sauces. There was also a vegetarian platter for the non-meat-eaters of the group. There was a good choice of main dishes (including veggie options) and the portion sizes were very substantial resulting in some of us taking home doggy bags. The waiting staff were friendly and accommodating, offering their recommendations and taking our orders promptly. The black seed ice cream was definitely a great recommendation for dessert! The atmosphere was both relaxed and lively.07/05/2013 00:00:00Good Pad ThaiOnly had Pad Thai Jay and it wasn't the best I've ever had but would definitely go there again.02/05/2013 00:00:00Excellent restaurant!Delicious food, service with a smile and great prices30/04/2013 00:00:00Great AtmosphereLovely little restaurant, great food and great service.

Prices are very reasonable.18/03/2013 00:00:00a very pleasant surpriseI booked Kin in a rush as we arranged to meet some friends late on a Saturday. We had a fantastic experience because Kin offered us all we were looking for on that special occasion: a small and cosy place off the tourists beaten track but still central, simple modern immaculate furnishing, delicious food and a warm and welcoming service. I am very happy to recommend this place if you want to taste lovely pan asian street food reasonably priced. You can have a nice conversation with no need to shout to be heard.

Great selection on the menu - not too much quickly choice that it bamboozles you but just enough for their to be a selection. Food was great, came quickly and was super tasty.

Would definitely recommend a trip here!26/02/2013 00:00:00Very good food in Leather LaneVery good lunch at Kin. It was very busy but the staff remained friendly and efficient. The Asian street food was freshly cooked, very tasty and well presented. It is probably less crowded and better for a sit down meal in the evening.21/02/2013 00:00:00Great food, location and ambianceHad a fantastic set meal at lunch for a group booking- food was superb, portions great and nice setting.15/02/2013 00:00:00Great little find, taste to savour!Found this when searching through toptable and when I saw the reviews were superb, had to give it a try.

Wil definitely be back if I'm in the area.14/02/2013 00:00:00Brilliant food and staffGreat food, great staff - thanks for a lovely experience.02/02/2013 00:00:00Good home foodOverall, kin is an excellent find. Eating early means its empty but after 7pm it gets very very busy. Starters were fantastic. I ordered the Katsura curry for main which was perfect though I would have loved to have more potatoes and carrots in the sauce. Th chicken was perfectly cooked too.,02/02/2013 00:00:00Perfect little cheap eat!A relaxed environment, excellent waiting staff, gorgeous food which is very natural tasting and fresh.

Attentive service, delicious starters and main courses. Amazing value especialy as you get 30% off your food bills starting 5:30 p.m. We had 2 drinks, a starter each, a main course and only paid £60 between 6 of us. Great value. Lunch is also nice there - both sit in and take away.
Hightly recommend!27/01/2013 16:00:00We ate here with a group ofWe ate here with a group of six and overall we felt the service and food was very good. Unfortunately on two/three occasions one of the group members ordered something from the menu only to find out later that they did not have the specific ingredients. They compensated us for this by giving us a free bottle of wine. Overall, I would highly recommend KIN to everyone.25/01/2013 16:00:00Consistantly good..Great food, very fresh and really good value (especially with the 30% off). Will go back.23/01/2013 16:00:00Great Value and tastyWe had a very enjoyable meal that was made even better with the deal from Toptable. The food was great and tasted quite authentic - the starters of duck spring rolls and pork dumplings were especially yummy. I really liked the reclaimed furniture and purposely rough around the edges feel to the place even though the wooden bench I sat on was quite uncomfortable. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere warm but not very buzzing. I would go back as it is well priced, the portions huge and tasty but not for a special occasion.22/01/2013 16:00:00Last min find paid off brilliantlyEnded up here for a last minute find out Southeast Asian food with a small group of friends. The best thing about this place is the authentic flavours of the food, the welcoming service and the cozy ambience. Not too loud in the evenings and buzzing at lunch times - exactly what's needed.20/01/2013 16:00:00Asian street food in a smallAsian street food in a small and intimate setting, the home-made dumplings (potstickers) were some of the best I have had. The salt and pepper calamari was light and the spicing subtly balanced. The specials included a prawn noodle dish which was unctuous and moreish, whose spiciness was balanced by a gentle sourly sweet tang. A similar balance was achieved by the yellow curry. Service was impeccable and who could possibly complain about the price?18/01/2013 16:00:00Excellent food and excellent valueWe enjoyed our visit to KIN, it's a small reastaurant in Leather Lane, Clarkenwell, slightly off the beaten track. My salt and pepper calamari starter was one of the nicest dishes that I've tasted for ages. I had the prawn pad thai main, while my wife had the vegetarian pad thai (available with or without both fish sauce and egg).
We finished off with banana fritters and yummy black sesame ice cream. With our 30 percent discount from toptable, it represented excellent value and we will be back with or without a voucher in future.15/01/2013 16:00:00Great Neighbourhood RestaurantWe went here for a special meal, and special it was. The food was excellent, and although the starters took literally forever to arrive, the service was lovely, and it turned out to be a great local restaurant.13/01/2013 16:00:00Exceptional food and very friendlyThis is the perfect place for group meal ofter work in the City. The food was some of the best Thai food we've had and the service was so friendly. We'll be back again for sure!13/01/2013 16:00:00Great food, excellent valueLoved this place - the food was really good, service very friendly and efficient, and such good value.11/01/2013 16:00:00I go nearly every week!One of my favourite local restaurants.

Try the singapore noodles.02/11/2012 00:00:00Yum!Fantastic thai is rare to find in a well designed modern restaurant but KIN has managed to maintain the quality of food you get from a local home grown thai restaurant within a great space. I've been here with a group of friends and for a romantic meal and it's prefect for either.02/10/2012 00:00:00Late night dinner at KINDelightful, friendly, knowledgeable staff & good, tasty food at this restaurant. We enjoyed our starters of chicken satay & papaya salad; & our mains of nasi goreng & vegetarain pad thai. Excellent value with the Toptable offer. The toilets could have been a little cleaner.22/09/2012 00:00:00Three of us dined at KIN forThree of us dined at KIN for lunch in London. The service is fine, but the food comes in whatever order - it doesn't quite make sense. However, when the food does arrive it is very tasty and reasonably priced. We will definitely go often - the dumplings are especially perfect!16/05/2012 00:00:00We had a lovely meal at KINWe had a lovely meal at KIN in Clerkenwell.

The salt and Pepper Clamari was delicious!
Only downside was how long it took to get coffee at the end. I imagine this place is only gonna get busier so an upgrade in the coffee making facilities is probably required! Other than that couldnt fault it!18/04/2012 16:00:00This place is a little trickyThis place is a little tricky to locate but is a really warm and welcoming place. The staff are very efficient and friendly, the food is good but not great. The noodles were a real highlight, nasi goreng was a bit of a let down. With the TT deal, well worth a visit. A few tweaks and this place will be brilliant.18/04/2012 00:00:00Six of us had lunch at KINSix of us had lunch at KIN in London.

Food was tasty and good value with the Top Table deal.

The food is good value anyway, so this deal makes it excellent value. We were very impressed with the food - it was delicious. I'd definitely recommend it, if you can get a deal then even better. Lovely little place. Service was reasonable - there didn't seem to be many staff to deal with all the customers.13/03/2012 00:00:00Kin in Leather Lane - my secondKin in Leather Lane - my second visit and was another really lovely evening and an absolute bargain with the TT offer.
The food is amazing, I recommend the Chicken Satay and the Duck Spring Rolls, both gorgeous to start and the Katsu Curry is spicy but delicious.
Will definitely be going again soon.
Be sure to try the range of speciality teas afterwards, you won't be disappointed.12/03/2012 17:00:00KIN shines with its dishesKIN shines with its dishes being quite greaseless & light. Portions are small but allows room for side dishes too. Wor Tip & the spring rolls were good but could have done with some veg for some crunch inside . Papaya salad was lovely but could have missed out the green beans as it tasted strange. The quality of the Bun noodles were poor & Nuoc mam was too bland to go with the Bun. However the green curry & fried rice were amazing. Both were rich with ingredients, flavoursome & well seasoned.11/03/2012 17:00:00We had a great meal at KinWe had a great meal at Kin last night.

You need to book if there are more than 4 of you as space is limited. We will definitely be visiting again soon!26/02/2012 16:00:00KIN was surprisingly good!KIN was surprisingly good! I went for the set menu priced £9.50 for a starter, I chose Tom Yum Soup & a main in which I chose a Thai Green Curry. In regards to taste & presentation it was faultless. My soup was well flavour. An acquired taste but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Just wished it had more than the 2 prawns that were given. My curry was also quite small but can honestly say its the best tasting green curry I've had. Very fragrant with lots of garlic , perfect consistency and very fresh.08/02/2012 16:00:00
