Chef Nuit welcomes you to Kiin 

From the Regulars 

We wanted to create a place that showed off the warmth of Thai hospitality and brought people together with delicious shared plates and great drinks. Kiin is where Thailanders can get a taste of what they’ve been missing from home and Torontonians can try traditional dishes that they haven’t likely seen before but are favourites of ours” says Chef Nuit Regular, Co-owner and Executive Chef at Kiin. “Our family of restaurants have had a Northern Thai focus, but Kiin will introduce traditional dishes from all over Thailand. The menu draws from the experiences I’ve had growing up in and traveling across Thailand, where sharing food is such an important part of the culture. Kiin will be like how meals are experienced back home.

Kiin is quite different from Chef Nuit and Jeff Regular's other ventures, as they have focused on Northern Thai cuisine in the past. This was an opportunity to celebrate the traditions from all across Thailand, while incorporating the delicate qualities and rare art of Royal Thai cuisine. The culinary art form close to extinction, originally a cuisine that was only served in the Royal Palace for royalty. Royal Thai cuisine focuses on the freshest ingredients, rich flavours and is meant to be extremely delicate and complex.

The Kiin menu offers ingredient-driven sharing plates during dinner, and fast and fresh rice and noodle bowls and plates during lunch. 

Kiin's design elements were inspired by Chef Nuit’s experience growing up in Phare, Thailand. She spent her high school years in a colourful building designed in the colonial style of architecture that is throughout Thailand. She was also always fascinated with the rich details that can be found in the Royal Palace. Chef Nuit worked very closely with interior designer Kat Gudov at Steven Fong Architect to bring together these two styles and create a refined and uniquely Thai experience.
