Our Story

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 dish before it makes it to our menu!

We hope you enjoy this journey into our Kin Khao Thai world.

The Kitchen

Sample dishes from the Far North with their strong Lao and Burmese influences. Pit your senses against the fiery salads and curries of Isaan in the North East. Savour the creamy coconut curries popular down South with their strong Muslim and Indian flavours.

You’ll find many dishes on our menu that come from the hometowns and villages of our staff. Some are family recipes that have been passed down through the generations. Others started life as humble staff food and we all fell in love with them.
