Amazing Basque cuisines with warm hospitality. Recommend the baby squid, slow cooked pork/veal and signature Kinou Txuleta. Choose the counter seat at the open kitchen to watch the chefs in action. Look for manager Chris and chef owner Ben for some serious wine recommendations and...have the real Kinou experience!More

French people missing home? Foreigners willing to experience the Basque friendliness? Stop searching, this is the place you're looking for in Singapore ! Is it for a few delicious pitxos or for a juicy beef prime rib (or both :)), Ben will always receive you...and put a smile on your face. Merci encore et à très vite !More

Amazing food and excellent costumer service. Loved it and will be back for more. Definitely would recommend the Ribeye Steak and Cauliflower. The desserts were lovely too.

I went to kinou for lunch with my business partners. We arrived there and were warmly welcomed by the staff. The place is beautiful. The basque menu they serve is traditional and innovative at the same time. I strongly recommend the kinou’s special txuleta tomahawk....You can die for it. And need to finish with the Gateau Basque. I also find the set lunch price very affordable. Ben the chef-owner and Chris the Manager straight away made us feel at home Strongly recommend this place.More

Been here twice but first time after it's moved to Teck Lim (used to be at Tras St). It's a lot more upbeat at Teck Lim and more happy vibes. We ordered 4 dishes and they were all really good - especially the beef tartare....Service was great too despite there being a lot of people. It did get a bit loud towards the end of our meal though - lots of shouting back and forth between the chefs and those sitting at the bar lol.More
