First Look: Kindee Thai

Sticking with this week's theme of writing mixed reviews of new restaurants that may or may not enrage the readers of this blog, a few brief words about the Mill District's Kindee Thai restaurant: If you're going to the Guthrie, and you generally view Thai food as a little too challenging, this is exactly the right place for you to eat dinner.

The decor is pleasant (chic, even — it feels like Brooklyn, in the new, hip sense of the word) and the staff is kind and attentive.
