We felt we could actually be out foreign.The resturant is decorated really well, it's in keeping with the... More

Good, varied menu. Tasty, hot main courses; desserts a little disappointing. Staff ok-more interested in resetting tables than attending to customers. Tables very close together and room was unpleasantly cold.

Great welcome from the maitre de, good fast service but no hurrying. Great flavours and interesting clean surroundings, with many diners. Good recommendations for wine and Adam the owner came round asking how everything was. Good value and great taste with nice people.

Well worth taking the time to find, make sure you book first, they're really busy !!! The food was great & more than matched by the courteous, informative staff. It was also great to see that all the beers & ciders are from local brewers!! Local businesses supporting eachother is always to be applauded.

Myself and a friend signed up to a course in athlone with the reasoning being we could go to kin khao first to get food. I got the jungle curry and like always was delicious. My friend got the penang and was equally impressed. Often drive from mullingar to get takeout! Adore the food!! 😀😍

The waiter joked all evening there was no fish sauce in the coffee,,,the dessert etc. Very friendly staff and the food sorted for us was top quality. No complaints. If there were few... More
