Presenting innovative, modern-Asian food alongside an exceptional selection of wine and cocktails, Kiin is known for its humble hospitality, outstanding service and inviting surrounds.

The brainchild of hospitality veterans Ben Bertei and David Wickwar, Kiin is the culmination of over fifty years experience in the industry, with the pair meeting some twenty years ago in Melbourne.

“We both relocated to Adelaide with the idea to open multiple venues, so Kiin is like our baby and our flagship”, says Director & General Manager David Wickwar.

Sharing a mutual respect and love of Anthony Bourdain, references to the late renowned chef are notable throughout the venue, its menu and its exuberant ambience. 

“One of the main driving forces was to create a place that we could be proud of ourselves, but also a place where people had a beautiful environment to come to”, says David.

“There’s a sense of escapism dining here, and that’s because of the style of service, the food, the music – there’s a lot of thought that’s gone into the smaller details”

“We have the quality and standards of a fine dining restaurant, but without the pretence”, says David.

Utilising seasonal produce and locally sourced suppliers, Kiin showcases an innovative menu of exotic and authentic Thai flavours.

“The red curry cheeseburger and the prawn and lychee pop stick are popular – they’re not going anywhere”, says Chef & Director, Ben Bertei.

“I’ve been doing a lot of Thai food for a considerable amount of time, and for me to branch out and become who I wanted to be creatively and express that, that’s the direction it’s taken”

“There’s a lot of thought that goes into what we do – a dish may take four different variations before getting it to where we want it to be”, says Ben.

Complementing their carefully curated food menu is a drinks list that’s specific to the palate of Asian cuisine.

“The drinks list is designed to suit the food – but representing local was important as well, so the wine list is South Australian and European wines only”, says David.

With the capacity to also cater for functions and events, Kiin ensures all dietary requirements are met, and that every customer is left contented and well-nourished.

“We’ve created a little bit of an Oasis here – it really is an enjoyable place to be”.
