If Asian street food is what you crave, then KIN in London’s Clerkenwell is the very thing. The KIN kitchen offers authentic pan-Asian street food from Thailand, Japan, China and Vietnam, among others. KIN’s ethos is simple, fresh and healthy – most of the food is gluten-free and each meal supplies at least one of your five-a-day. The drinks list complements everything perfectly as it includes a good selection of Asian beers, artisan teas, Vietnamese coffee as well as wines from emerging vineyards. The décor is casual and smart, with stripped brick walls and wooden floors, white paint and vibrant detailing. This stylish spot is relaxed and welcoming, a delight among street food restaurants in general.

I've only had takeaway from this place, but the place itself has looked nice and casual when I've stopped by for food pickup. My wife and I had been searching for decent pad seeuw since coming to London and Kin's is the best we've found so far. The noodles could still be wider and chewier, but the sauce is flavorful dark...more
KIN has been on my list for months and I finally got a chance to try it on Thursday. Walking into a mostly empty restaurant on a Thursday would normally send up a red flag, but I figured it's location on Leather Lane made it more of a lunch place. Needless to say, we immediately were seated at a nice table and received superb service. My companion had the Nasi Goreng, while I had the Singapore...more
DELICIOUS. Wow, this place hit the spot.
My coworkers and I were in London for a business trip, and it happened to coincide with the Game of Thrones FINALE. Dun dun dunnnnn....
So we decided to get take out and camp out at our airbnb apartment to watch the episode. It took us a while to decide where to order from. Kin popped up as a good choice on Yelp and open table. I'm so glad we...more
