Kiln is a regional Thai restaurant that very rarely incorporates coconut milk into its dishes, choosing instead Thai-style vegetable, chicken, beef, and fish barbecue dishes. At Kiln, produce leads the plates; locally sourced ingredients, like Cornish beef, allow dishes to shine in their stripped-back simplicity. The pork loin is succulent and ember-charred, arriving with a sweet and salty sauce, while the wild ginger and short-rib curry is so tender you can skip the knife. Kiln’s showpiece is the actual kiln inside, a small, insulated furnace that feeds on oak and chestnut logs, converting them to embers that eventually heat the restaurant’s grills and woks. Bear witness to the pyrotechnics by getting a seat at the back, with a full view of the kitchen.
