Fodor's Expert Review Kin Khao

$$$ Union Square Thai Fodor's Choice

Casual eaters of Americanized Thai food probably won’t recognize much at this modern, dimly lit restaurant, but travelers to Thailand—the chef-owner is a native—will likely see a few familiar items on the short, focused menu. Ingredients are sourced—more accurately, tracked down with dedication—from regional purveyors to create a range of powerful, unique dishes ranging from a mushroom curry mousse with crispy rice cakes to rabbit green curry.
