THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Kin Khao Restaurant Review

: We are addicted to the tart and potent kamikazes (made with house-infused ginger vodka) available at the bar in this perpetually crowded Thai eatery. The food is only standard, but the lively crowd, SoHo location, reasonable prices and kamikazes make up for its shortcomings. Tom yum kung, a clear hot-and-sour soup with shrimp, straw mushrooms, lemon grass and chilies, isn't as intensely flavored as it should be. We prefer the tom kah kai, a rich soup of coconut milk and chicken. Pla kung, a hot-and-sour prawn salad with onions, chili, lemon grass and basil, is a delightful combination of spicy and refreshing. Entrées run the usual Thai gamut, including fragrant curries and fried whole fish with chili sauce, or try the Bangkok tapas.
