Kin Dee Thai Cuisine is officially opening for service Friday, May 22 in the Heights.
The restaurant offers a made-from-scratch, authentic Thai cuisine inspired by four distinct food regions of Thailand, with an emphasis on noodle-based entrees.
The concept is the brainchild of co-owners and longtime friends Lukkaew Srasrisuwan and Miranda Loetkhamfu, who both have Thai routes.
“We have conceptualized Kin Dee to be a truly authentic representation of our homeland in its flavors, its ingredients, its feel, and its overall vision – a vision that harkens back to Thailand but simultaneously infuses new elements into what a modern Thai restaurant can be,” Srasrisuwan said. “We feel that Kin Dee represents a wholly unique addition to the vibrant and diverse Houston culinary community and are ecstatic to open our doors to Houstonians and visitors alike this week.”
The restaurant’s 30-dish menu showcases regional and royal Thai family recipes utilizing authentic, quality, hard-to-source ingredients, with prices ranging from $8 to $22.
Most of the ingredients are sourced from a Thailand, and several herbs on the menu are homegrown in Houston.
Kin Dee also has a menu of 13 signature cocktails, and will serve a selection of wine, draft beer and Thai beer.
Happy hour will be hosted from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday - Thursday.
