Thai
Kin Dee’s is a modern tropical eatery with cuisine that is truly authentic representation of Thailand through its unique flavors, its ingredients and overall vision. Focused on made-from-scratch, authentic and primarily noodle-based dishes, Kin Dee delivers native cuisine exactly like it’s served in Thailand. Kin Dee’s beverage menu boasts 13 signature cocktails – each inspired by and designed to pair perfectly with one of the 13 signature entrees. Concocted with a decidedly Thai flair, cocktails include the Tom Yum, a Thai twist on a classic Texas margarita, the Mango Sticky Rice, a play on the well-known Thai dessert and the Phuket, a sour twist on a pineapple flavored drink. Kin Dee also serves a selection of wine, draft beer and Thai beer. Our patios are dog friendly.

    Food and service were excellent. The setting could have been a bit more intimate, and noise level was fairly high.

    This was our second time at Kin Dee and it did not disappoint. The food and drinks were top notch. There was live music which was nice, it wasn’t too loud that we couldn’t converse with each other. Would recommend to others looking for a good Thai meal.

    We eat a lot of Thai - both homemade and dining out - and Kin See was right up there with some of the better. The purple dumplings are a must, and the soup and entrees were spot on for quality, quantity, and price. We're not cocktail people but we saw a lot of fun drinks nearby. Only knock on KD is the noise level. Was hard to hold a conversation at a quaint table for 2 at 6:00p on a Saturday. Will try outdoor seating when it cools off a bit. Good parking in back, service was great.

    We all love Thai food but this was an extraordinary experience. The absolute loveliness of presentation every detail exactly right. The timing of the meal the ambience. The dishes that we chose were absolutely wonderful and avoided all the pitfalls that Thai food can fall into. Flavorful and spicy and unique but not overdone just right!

    If I want a quieter meal, I'll just reserve a table in the middle of the main runway at IAH. Heads up restaurant owners and STUPID HASH HOUSE DESIGNERS: the inability of customers to have a conversation is not a plus. Other aspects passed my high bar. Our waiter, Earth, is not dirt to his profession, being attentive, knowledgeable, and thoughtful. The maitre d', Joe, fielded the tiniest suggestion so fluidly, that a complaint I had ready was forgotten. The food was OK to good, and I doubt if they have raised their prices yet. But we went for the lark of the Thai dancer, and I might go back only for that reason. But a restaurant is a sorry setting to appreciate delicate art. The other singer just added to the noise as we were not able to understand a word. When we left, though, from the piped-to-the-outside feed (or it might have been her recording) we were surprised that she had a very pretty voice. This could be a go-to spot after some rethinking (and reconstruction) by the management. However, there wasn't an empty seat on our weeknight visit, so they know how to attract the easy to please young crowd, who will come until they find something else. I give it 2 more years, but that may be enough for the investors to recoup.

    Had to ask for me a drink twice and for my companion 3 times. Waiter seemed to have zero memory of my companion having asked for a drink. But, as always when I have gone before, the food was good and served timely. (The seating is a bit tight. It would be better if there was one less table on the long wall so people could have conversation that did not have to include the tables beside them - but it is clear this is because they are very busy.) Also, the singer is always excellent. Really enjoy her music.

    My wife selected the restaurant to celebrate her birthday. I am very disappointed that no one acknowledged her birthday. Service was average. We had to ask for our water to be refilled. The food was good but a bit over priced. We spent over $80 for lunch for two.
