Kin Dee Thai Cuisine
New to Houston, this polished Heights spot is named for the Thai phrase “eat well,” and indeed you will. Anticipate traditional Thai classics: satay skewers, steamed dumplings, soulful soups, curries, and artfully arranged main plates starring noodles (including pad thai of course). Order this to go: Creamy—and righteously spicy—green curry chicken with breast meat, slightly sweet caramelized eggplant, and a kiss of Thai basil alongside bundles of vermicelli noodles. Also good, Thai fried rice aromatic with garlic and packed with shrimp, pork, scallions, and broccoli. Another winner: shrimp casserole slow-roasted in a clay pot with plump steamed shrimp, tamarind sauce, sprouts, and snap peas over glass noodles. Expect a liberal amount of oil in most dishes. Pro tip: Choose your heat level; “medium” suits us. Plan to pick up right after you order online—they do not offer future times for pickup. All parking is behind the building.
