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.

Fantastic Asian food at a great price (for London standards anyway)! A variety of Asian dishes - Vietnamese starters, thai noodle dishes, Chinese steam bun sandwiches, udon. I had the pan fried udon and Vietnamese starter (grilled pork with vermicelli and veggie garnish). Delicious and authentic!more
I have to say I never been in the restaurant but I ordered food from them a couple of times and I have to say that it was AWESOME. Totally worth it! I just have good things to say about their food. As a starters I tried: 'Salt and Pepper Calamari' (OMG, to die for!) and 'Hoi Sin Duck Spring Rolls' (so gooood!). Soups are great as well. I ordered 'Won Ton Dumpling Soup': really delicious and...more
The food at KIN is fantastic.
I haven't been to the actual restaurant, but I have tried their home delivery at it was really good. It is true that it took them about an hour to deliver, but it was the windiest night I have ever seen in my life and it was raining, so I forgave them! And the man who did the delivery was just so nice and the food so good that the wait was worth it!
Bei meinem letzten London-Besuch waren wir im KIN essen. Vorab: Nette Location, super leckeres Essen und top freundliche Bedienung.
Zumal ich asiatisches Essen liebe, und auch scharfes Essen liebe (dann ist man hier sowas von richtig) gefiel mir der Besuch im KIN ausserordentlich gut! Ich hatte Nudeln bestellt (siehe Foto), Drunken Noodles hiessen die. Echt saulecker, aber auch extrem scharf....more
