Extremely poor service and mediocre food. I've been a customer twice and never intending to go back. Each experience was utterly disappointing. My first visit was for lunch with friends and we only ordered desserts (banana fritters) but had to wait an hour for it. The server did not submit our order to the kitchen until only half an hour after taking our order. We probably wouldn't have received our order if we didn't request to have our order checked. My friend had to leave due to time constraint after waiting for so long. The manager from Kin did not let us cancel her order and scolded us for complaining. On another occasion, I did a takeaway order for collection on the phone for dinner. The server on the phone was struggling to take my order correctly because her English is poor. She got it wrong anyway in the end and I only found out after I reached home and realise she had given me the wrong dish. I called and requested they rectify their mistake and made my trip back to Kin. After receiving my correct order, the server requested that I pay again for the food. Never eating at KIN again!


Excellent calamari! Great find, really nice atmosphere and great street food. Highly recommended


Nice interiors but unfortunately the food was mediocre.

If you like great food, stylish surroundings and friendly and helpful staff then I would really recommend Kin. Popped in for lunch down Leather Lane and was pleasantly surprised to find this gem! It was such value for money, too- £7 for a decent-sized portion of tasty noodles was the cherry on top. I don't normally go for varied cuisine, and stick to my usual favourites, but so glad I gave this modern twist on Asian food a go.
