Performance and presentation are as much a part of the experience as the great flavours and myriad dishes that fly at you across the course of the taster menu.
The restaurant has a relaxed ambience and is more informal than I expected. Beautiful setting and the journey through the restaurant starting downstairs with 'street food' entries and moving upstairs for the main dishes was an interesting approach.
The dishes were very interesting with wonderful flavours, technically impressive and great presentation, often with a very interactive slant, seeing the dishes created or transformed before your eyes.
Each dish coming in succession, a description of the course was given, but as the restaurant was full and the waiter gently spoken it was often difficult to follow the detail. Perhaps a menu on the table would help ?
The juice pairing was an inventive alternative to wine, although seemed to fall out of sync with the progression of the courses.
The main courses were great, but the desserts were less impressive. Thai restaurants rarely do desserts well however hard they might try. This is just my own personal experience.
I love Thai food and could probably live a happy and simple life on a diet of Pad Thai; although having now experienced Kiin Kiin my expectations have been raised.
Worthy of its high rating and certainly worth a visit.
