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 was a bit disappointed with this. I had calamari to start and a special "scissor noodles" as a main. I thought the main in particular was sludgy and pretty tasteless. My wife had pad Thai which was almost the same as my "special". Her starter duck spring rolls were admittedly pretty tasty. We got 20% off as we were dining before 6.30pm.

Kin is perfectly located next to a Craft beer bar. If you're after something tasty, and filling after beer, this is a great option!
The menu has great options for vegetarians and non vegetarians, with a daily special to shake it up.
We started off with some prawn crackers, Shanghai beer, and lychee juice. I love it when I can find lychee juice, as not many restaurants serve it.
KIN for the WIN! We arrived at KIN as a group of 7 people and as soon as the door swung open I was taken back by the warmth coming form inside, I'm not talking about the temperature warmth, I'm talking about the warmth exuding from the staff. We were seated at the rear of the quaint restaurant on a long wooden bench and to my delight our table was already stocked up with large trough like...more
I came here for a specific reason: photos of their food looked so perfect and too beautiful on a blog I follow. And I wasn't disappointed at all.
It can be weird to find out that the menu mix a lot of different food icons from different places in Asia. They make Pho as well as a Pad Thai or a Nasi Goreng (why I didn't tried this one too).
I ordered the chicken satay and the Pad Thai....more
