The restaurant has a mix of traditional dining tables and bar seats. A pink and pastel color scheme is enhanced by leopard-print wallpaper on the ceiling, a floral back bar and flaming artwork on the walls. A small private din- ing area is outfitted with flamingo wallpaper and seats up to five guests in a curtained-off area at the back of the restaurant. An outdoor patio seats an additional 30 guests.

Kiin's design by was inspired by Chef Nuit's experience growing up in Phrae, Thailand, where she spent her high school years in a colorful, colonial- style building and developed a fascination with the rich details of the Royal Palace. Designed by Katherine Gudov of Steven Fong Architect, the 35-seat restaurant features marble floors, stained-glass shutters, framed photos of the Thai royal family, plush velvet furnishings and pink doors with crystal knobs. Light fixtures hang from intricately carved medallions similar to ones found at a temple in Nuit's hometown. Potted plants add a tropical element to the space. Images courtesy of Kiin
