There were 3 of us, 2 dishes were good. The 3rd was so disappointing as I expected a chicken curry but received what looked like 3 fish cakes. The sauce and rice were fine.

Found this restaurant on Menu Pages and visited when we were in Athlone towards the end of January. Well worth the visit, staff very friendly and efficient without being in your face all the time. The food was excellent and hot and had my wife not been with me I'd probably have licked the plate! The Thai custard for dessert was out of this world and completely new to us, fabulous flavour which just left our taste buds screaming for more.

Booked a table via the Menupages website and were greeted by name and a big smile last Monday, probably because we were one of only two tables at the time. We were seated right beside the only other occupied table which was slightly annoying due to the distinct lack of ambient noise but we carried on regardless. Lovely choices available from a quirkily written menu and the specialty chicken/prawn mince ball curry and crispy seabass dishes were selected for mains with a deep fried dumpling dish to share for starters. The curry and spicy seabass were absolute winners with distinct levels of flavour and well judged heat. The accompanying jasmine rice and noodles were both hot and again well executed. One comment would be that all dishes except the side orders were garnished with an excess of red, green and yellow peppers in dice, strip and diamond formation, not needed and a little distracting. The starter was dire, a stodge of chicken/prawn paste with green beans and sweetcorn through it, wrapped in filo, fried and sliced in four strips on a plate with lettuce, shredded cabbage and more peppers, truly unenjoyable. Service was fine although at one stage I ventured to the gents and on my way passed the waiter sitting on the stairs to the upper level playing with his phone and then downstairs the greeter/manager using his phone? We chose lovely beers from a nice selection to accompany the meal plus one glass of Verdejo and declined on desserts or post meal drinks, bill was just over €70. We would certainly return on the strength of the main courses and maybe choose a different option for the starter.

Ate here with my boyfriend Saturday night on a weekend away in Athlone. Very good food, has the mixed starter for two, check out the fresh spring rolls, yummmm. I had the steamed checken curry, the house speciality , it was lovely although was surprised to find that the chicken was of a meatball consistency. I would have preferred not but that is just personal taste.My boyfriend had the duck with was huge and he loved it. I finished with the sticky rice pudding, amazing but heavy. All in all a very nice meal. it's not cheap though. no change from 100 for meal for two with one bottle of wine ( House white, v nice ) Two gripes, we were seated in the upper level of the restaurant beside a lovely window with some stained glass in it. When you looked out the window you were looking at a flat roof that had rubbish strewn over it. Off putting and easily remedied with some fake ikea foliage.Also only toilets downstairs and meant that you have to walk through the take away waiting area which takes from the experience somewhat. Especially considering the prices. Would return.

My husband and I visited Kin Khao based on the reviews I had read on Menupages, and am happy to say we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, portions were ample, service was very efficient and friendly and the atmosphere and surroundings were delightful and charming. The early bird menu is super value. We would definitely dine here again if we ever return to Athlone.

Was a late decision to eat in the Kin Khao Thai restaurant for my sister's 50th, and they were very accomodating at such short notice. They were heavily booked for the evening but said they could squeeze us in for an early bird @ 5.30pm. Food was excellent, staff were efficient & price were just right for our budget. Fabulous all round !! We'd certainly recommend it to all of our friends & family.

In a word AWFUL! Food OK. Staff RUDE. Except one waiter! My family, arrived at 6pm on Sat to find a table we had booked in advance was set incorrectly, we being a party of 10(8 and 2 children, 6pm booking so as not to disturb other diners). We asked for a highchair, arrived with no tray, some people like this, but I feel unsafe, as it gives access to cutlery, glasses and essentially hot food! (This was in fact proved correct!!). The family proceeded to order, a mix of early bird (EB) (as this appeared good value) and full menu orders. I tried to order some plain chicken no sauce for my son; I was told this may not be possible! As all dishes are prepared!!! This was never confirmed, however my son got no chicken and I no explanation. Please note in the Kin Khao EB means 1 portions not in fact eating earlier! I think this should have been specified on the menu. This would not have been so bad! Only it was very obvious when dishes arrived. Made more so as the diligent staff in fact then switched around plates from person to person depending on menu ordered e.g 4 skewers swapped for 3 as an EB eater! My Mother found to her detriment not to try an order off menu! Mum asked if she could have a main course of chicken satay, a reasonable request? Response, a gruff “Is there nothing on the main course menu you would eat!” No offer of a recommendation, the waiter then brought her 2 starters of chicken stay skewers! Fine! But they were so over done she could bang them off the plate!! This dish was changed with a big huff and puff; it arrived later with no warm rice. My brother’s EB prawn dish came with 5 small prawns! for his €3 extra! He was told EB dishes are 1 portions! However once he complained he was accommodated! This is were my meal ended due to a hungry child, who was not catered for, but did in fact get a very hot and small early bird curry placed on front of him. I decided to save the diners from his cries of pain & leave. The family finished up, not impressed, also very shocked when asked if they enjoyed the meal!

Visiting Athlone for the night myself and the good lady wife ate here after a pleasant drink in Seans Bar nearby. Like places recently visited I am glad to say Kin Khao is coeliac friendly and I enjoyed a Gluten Free Ale with the meal. We tried both the green and red curries agreeing the red was superb.The starters were good, ice creams a little bland other than the mango. With one meal on early bird menu and one al la carte food was consistant and the early bird is great value.

Had dinner here on a busy Saturday on the bank holiday weekend. Good atmosphere. Large selection of food on the menu. We stayed with beer throughout the dinner. We all thoroughly enjoyed every dish ordered. No complaints except that we were all too full for dessert! Service was very good also.

We eat here every few weeks, it is a gem in the centre of Athlone. Authentic food, nice ambience and fairly good service. Nice wine list too. The beef salad starter is to die for if you like a kick to your food. Pad Thai is excellent. Would not recommend the starter platter tho, obviously made to entertain the take-away palate as opposed to the true Thai connoisseur. The only downside to Kin Khao is the prices... especially in recent times. But I suppose it's still full most weekends, so they can get away with it. Highly recommended! :)
