We are very proud to see the team behind KIN Urban Thai Kitchen being awarded "BEST THAI RESTAURANT 2020" by That's Shanghai yesterday during the award ceremony hosted at the Bar Rouge in Shanghai, China.
KIN Urban Thai Kitchen, owned by The Camel Hospitality Group, Urban Food Group (one of NextStep Studio's portfolio company) and Happy Placee Hospitality Group, opened just a year ago (Fall 2019) and since then... so many things happened. And what a first year of operation it was...
As for many people in the F&B industry, things have been difficult, but luckily strong operations, a resilient team and supports from the community made it possible to deliver amazing dishes bringing flavors from the north of Thailand.
Congrats again to everyone involved and we are looking forward to a much brighter year 2021 !
