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.

We got the menu with wine menu. We had some great corses and fine wines, though some of the wines didn't quite fit the food. Unfortunately the staff had such a heavy accent that the contains of the corses and information about the wines vanished. We had a fine experience, - the dish with candy floss was the best. Not value for money

It almost felt like interactive theatre because of the way the dishes were presented and the synchronization of the entire dinner event commencing from the street bites to eventual desserts... we exclaimed Wow! More times than we could count. We did have some disappointment as our serve staff somehow forgot?? To inform the kitchen about our next course leaving us as the only table unserved and ignored for 40 minutes or more... but of a damper that was... otherwise it was a very interesting evening... good food but way better presentation and panache!

Great restaurant, great service with an attentive "starter moment" and with quality food. Super recommended, and if you can avoid "108" and "Relae"!

As we love Thai food we had to try Kiin Kiin while on a trip to Copenhagen. It did not disappoint and was probably one of the best meals that we have eaten in some time and certainly our best in Copenhagen.

They start you off downstairs with some street food bite size plates that you can enjoy with a cocktail before taking you upstairs for the 6 course tasting menu. We also opted for the wine pairing, with a different, very generous pouring of wine with each course.

Each dish was beautifully presented and offered an authentic taste of Thai cuisine but in a modern and de-constructed way.

None of the dishes disappointed and we liked it so much we bought the cook book.
