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.

KIN is absolutely fantastic. I've eaten at both the food stall outside and in their restaurant. The service has always been top-notch, and the food does not disappoint. I'm a big fan of the buns and the beef salad, which had just the right amount of kick and meat to satisfy.
If you're looking for tasty Asian food in the Farringdon area, definitely hit them up. You won't regret it.more

Food stall - Those pork/duck buns are worthy of having dreams about after. I'd say try and get there a little early around 12 when the meat is still hot. I ordered 2 thinking they can't be that big... they are and I couldn't finish the 2nd one in the end. Can't decide between duck and pork? Ask for it mixed! I prefer the pork but do like having the option for both.

Non è stato facilissimo da trovare, ma alla fine c'è l'abbiamo fatta. Il mio ragazzo non è un fanatico del cibo asiatico in generale, e in Italia, non è proprio facile trovare dei posti eccezionali come a Londra dove assaggiare le migliori pietanze. Era un "must" del nostro weekend. Siamo venuti da Kin su consiglio di alcuni nostri amici e colleghi, esperti nel settore, e devo dire che ci...more
KIN is VET.
Never judge a book by it's cover komt hier nogal van pas. De uitstraling is totaal anders dan de keuken. Sober, kaal, simpel, Zweeds, hout, design zijn kenmerken die meteen bij mij te binnen schoten. Het menu was echter Aziatisch Nasi Goreng, Pad Thai, Singapore Noodles (volgens mijn collega uit Singapore bestaan er geen Singapore Noodles, dus leuk weetje voor in de kroeg) etc....more
