Kin Khao Thai Restaurant

Kin Khao Thai Restaurant Review

You can't miss (and you'd be foolish to pass by) the distinctive yellow-and-red insignia of what is widely regarded as the leading Thai restaurant in the Midlands, if not in all of Ireland. Adam Lyons runs a slick first-floor operation in a 650-year-old building on the west bank. The extensive menu features dishes rarely available outside Thailand, including the Crying Tiger (grilled fillet of beef on a sizzling hot platter with a hot chili sauce) and Jungle Curry (an extremely hot curry made with mixed vegetables and chicken, beef, or prawns). Ceiling fans and balloon bamboo lights help create the perfect gastronomic scene—it's not hard to imagine yourself in Chiang Mai. Keep the water jug handy as the smooth richness of coconut milk doesn't offset this fiery food.
