Kin Khao Thai - Athlone

Abbey Lane, Athlone N37 FF29

Top 10 Recommended New Editor's Pick

ATHLONE Location - Fifteen years ago we broke the rules by cooking Thai food as it should be. Kin Khao Thai set the standard for Thai food in Ireland. Now is the time to throw away the rule book once again by introducing Isaan Thai to our new menu. At home, we enjoy food from all over Thailand. Our chefs are a tight team hailing from every region of Thailand. When we cook together, Isaan is the food of choice. It’s also the fastest growing regional Thai cuisine in Bangkok, New York, and Sydney. Isaan is a region in the North East of Thailand where the food is like no other. It’s both a joy and a challenge to eat. It’s gutsy, fermented and fiery. Each of our chefs has their own passed down family recipe or favourite comfort food from their home town. We cook, eat, and argue over each dish before it makes it to our menu! We hope you enjoy this journey into our Kin Khao Thai world.

Amazing food as always. Inspiring specials. Love the new interior. Friendly staff. We were entertaining guests from London and they said it was the best Thai food they've tasted, ever! So lucky to have this little gem of a restaurant in our town.

I think the food and service was very good. I'm not sure about the protocols in place in relation to Covid. The seating only gives 1 metre spacing and the lobby area which we had to wait in for outlr table has zero protocols and numerous people were right beside as we waited. Im also not sure face shields are to effective when you are serving someone as the complete area below their face is exposed. Having said that once I did relax a but the food service and value was excellent.

Food was fab. Flavours were fantastic. Staff very attentive. Selection of beers not great. Room quiet small and under present circumstances didnt feel like 2 metres between tables. Although my wife climbed the stairs if we had of known probably wouldn't have ventered though then we would have missed out on the georgous food. Price very reasonable and very popular for sit in and take away.

The issue of social distancing was very poor.I was sat at a table for two but I was less than a metre away from other customer. Unfortunately, I wouldn't go back in current circumstances because of this
