SquareMeal Review of Kin

Dreamed up by a young fashion merchandiser and an IT training expert, Kin brings a slice of pan-Asian street food to Clerkenwell – with the emphasis on fresh, healthy eating rather than high-calorie, canteen stodge. The revamped Victorian building has been trendily down out with swathes of exposed brick plank floors, kooky artwork, shelves of books and bulbous hanging lanterns, while the kitchen plunders the orient for ideas – Vietnam might bring bánh-mí baguettes, bowls of pho and zingy salads, Thailand offers green curries and pad thai, while China and Japan contribute homemade pot-sticker dumplings, chicken yakitori and suchlike. Other dishes such as Indonesian nasi goreng, vegetable tempura, crispy aromatic duck and soba noodles are also available. The food is matched by a thoughtful mixed bag of drinks including Asian beers, wines from artisan growers, juices and some esoteric organic teas.

Great little find along Leather Lane, Clerkenwell. Authentic pan Asian style food, but very spicy so I'd recommend asking for your food to be mild if you can't take the heat! It's a busy, quick eatery and the food doesn't all come out together. One of our party was waiting approx. 10 minutes for her meal to arrive whilst ours was going cold while we waited. That being said, the food was very tasty especially the Singapore noodles - packed with flavour!

Pan-Asian menu. Average marks all round. Kin offers lunchtime special take away menu, and sit down as so tends to get very busy, so the service can be tedious and if you are in a hurry you should tell the staff. The menu has good variety. I had won ton soup, which was too salty for my taste. The Thai dishes and spicier dishes went down well.
