Set in rue Mayran, Paris 9th arrondissement, this new Thai restaurant will delight people looking for gustative travels for lunch on-the-go or a lovely dinner. Open the doors of Kinn Khao and let yourself be carried to Thailand thanks to spices smells.
The setting is sober and bright. School tables and chairs, bamboo hanging lights, metro tiles and lawn, we feel relaxed. Furniture have been created with recycled materials, so we obviously welcome the initiative.
Running the eatery? Two women: Nisuria in the kitchen and Wanna in the dining room. A dream female team combining friendliness and finely decorated plates.
What do we eat in this nice restaurant? Curry of course. Nisuria doesn’t offer a kind of curry but a real travel through the different lands of Thailand. We all know the famous green Thai curry from Bangkok (that the chef brilliantly cooks with Thai basil, galangal, coconut milk, papaya and shrimp paste), but have you heard about the yellow curry called Khao Soy from the northern part of the country? Have you already tasted the Masseman curry from the south flavored with cinnamon? It may be the perfect time to improve your curry culture!
At lunchtime, you can choose the “starter, main course, dessert” set menu and pick among the eggrolls with vegetables, the papaya salad, the satay chicken skewers or the famous sweet and sour soup with shrimps and lemongrass as a starter. Let’s continue with pad Thai, Thai beef for the bravest eaters or a curry among the various options available.
At dinnertime, go for the tasting menu enabling you to give a go to every starter and choose one main course before wrapping up with a gourmet trio.
As for us, we went for the Khao Soy curry (yellow curry with chicken and served with smooth and crispy noodles) and the famous green curry full of flavors and served with sticky rice. Don’t hesitate to share your spicy scale to make sure your dish suits you.
We accompany the whole meal with a glass of coconut juice and end on a sweet note. Honorable mention to the Thai chestnut pudding cake, what a delight!
So, how about eating Thai, friends?
