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.
We visit regularly. This is one of the best restaurants in the area, with great food and service.
Really great food that’s fresh and tasty. All staff are really friendly and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere.
We had dinner In kinhao Athlone on December 4th. The restaurant was completely safe. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Would definately come again.
We had a delicious meal, restaurant is lovely with good social distancing and staff were friendly and efficient (and wearing their masks!). We had a lovely time there, thank you.

Fantastic Thai Food, Excellent Service. Would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.
Always amazing food and staff. There was just a moment where we needed to ask twice our drinks and it took a bit of time to come but otherwise it was perfect
Great food and service ... a favourite when ever we pass through, was one of the main reasons to go to Athlone for a night away .... we will definitely be back
Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.
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.

All great, food, service, atmosphere & decor amazing
WE love Kin Khao, the food is a truly unique and delicious taste of Thailand. Give it a try, you won't regret it!
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.
We had an absolutely wonderful evening from start to finish. The staff were attentive and friendly the food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Thank you so much for having us we cant wait to go back.
Well worth the visit, the service was excellent, friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. We had the crispy pork belly and the grilled pork shoulder to stater which were both perfectly cooked and melt in the mouth. The crispy pork belly winning on taste . Then came the mains of Crying Tiger and Red curry Duck - a tie for first place on our taste buds. We look forward to revisiting the gloriously funky decor of kinkhao Thai next time we visit .
Fantastic little restaurant, will be back.
To many tables too close together. But otherwise brillant
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 food is gorgeous from starter through to dessert. My only minor quibbles were the garlic potatoes did not live up to the rest of the menu and the restaurant was a little cold.
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
