The atmosphere was nice, it was quiet, there were few eat-in but lots of take-outs being picked up. The food was not great and the portions were quite small for the cost. We ordered a sea food dish which came with 4 prawns, some squid, and few mussels but little else. The other dish was a crispy noodle stir fry... More

I was sent her by our realtor. I ordered my favourite thing to eat, Pad Thai. The owner served me and he was very pleasant. I took my food to go and when I got to my picnic I wasn't disappointed. It was the best Pad Thai I have had to date. Thinking about it now makes my mouth water.... More

Had the curry chicken rolls for an appetizer and the stir fry curry prawn with coconut rice. Excellent choice at the suggestion of the owner.

They put so much soy sauce in the pad Thai, it looked dark and unappetizing and tasted awful! The portion was also very small. Two of us ordered a noodle dish, a rice one, and an entrée but walk out srill hungry!

This is our go to Thai restaurant. The food is so authentic, fresh ingredients and well prepared. The chefs here always get the heat factor bang on the way we order it. It is never to mild or hot. Service is good, owner is friendly. Always look forward to the Kinaree.

For a town the size of Comox, Kinnaree Thai's cuisine is remarkably authentic and pleasing. Be cautious when specifying your heat though, Thai hot is really really really hot. And I like it hot. I've been, I'll be back. The owner is hilarious too, one time I asked for a little bit more rice and he put (maybe) a teaspoon... More

I love Thai food, and the lack of choice for it in the Comox Valley is sad to me. Kinaree makes decent food that I might not consider to be authentic, but I am certainly not an expert, just someone who eats Thai when I travel and have had some Thai that has been much better to my tastes.

Whenever I need my "fix" of Pad Thai, I head in to Kinaree. Always good service and of course the Pad Thai is excellent. Our waiter has a most excellent sense of humor and definitely added to the experience. We'll be back!

This place has by far the best curry I've had in a long time. Just the right amount of spice and full of flavour. All of our starters were good too.

Good place to go, really nice Thai food. Although I seem to have some disconnect with the server/owner. I always say mild and at least one dish comes screaming, spicy hot and I simply cannot eat it. The flavours are so amazing though that I have to go back.

Thank foodguru m
