MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Smack in the middle of NYU turf and on a street choking with fast-casual eateries, Kiin Thai cuts an impressive figure design-wise, with its lofty ceilings and light-filled interior. While value-driven lunch specials might on occasion affect quality, the kitchen continues to push out precise renditions of Central and Northern Thai dishes. Khao soi is a gorgeous orange-hued curry with chewy noodles, tender braised chicken, hard-boiled egg and the requisite condiments needed to amp the dish up to an incendiary level. Other faves include fish hor mok-a custardy curry with striped sea bass, coconut milk, and duck eggs-topped with herbs and Makrut lime; or the excellent hor nueng gai with chicken, Thai eggplant and rice, delicately steamed in a banana leaf.
