About Us

Welcome to Kinkao Korean

The Kinkao brand was started by a husband and wife team to try to bring authentic Thai cuisine to the UK in a manner that had not been seen before.

Kinkao Thai quickly became extremely popular and before long the original site became too small to cater to the demand.

So the decision was made to move Kinkao Thai to a new site beautifully located in a riverside venue. If you are looking for the site for Kinkao Thai please click here.

Having established Kinkao Thai as the go to place for authentic Thai in London, we decided it was time to take the next step towards our long term goal.

The Flavours of Asian Cuisine

London is perhaps the most cosmopolitan city in the World and so it is only fitting that Londoners be able to enjoy all the cuisines of the globe right on their doorstep.

Our aim has always been to bring the richness of the flavours of Asia, in all their pomp and glory, to the UK and we chose to make Korean cuisine the next step in fulfilling our long term goal.

It was important to us that the standard in the new Kinkao Korean would be just as high as we have always tried to maintain at Kinkao Thai and we believe that we have succeeded in doing that. You can see what others think of the new branch of Kinkao here.

If you have never tried Korean cuisine before then please come along, we promise you a treat for your tastebuds.
