It was date night with my amazing and handsome husband. He surprised me with dinner at Krill. The restaurant had an authentic Southeastern Asian flare. The manager happily greeted and sat us along a wall of banquette tables against the backdrop of Durham. The decor of the restaurant was authentic Southeast Asian artwork showing off the the beauty and culture its people. Once seated we were greeted by the fabulous Kristen. She exudes happiness and a certain level of professionalism. We quickly became friends. She told us the specials but having done our homework, we knew exactly what we wanted. I started with a lychee martini which was deliciously decadent with a touch of modernity. Onward to the food. To start, the husband ordered wonderfully succulent and savory shrimp dumplings while I ordered the fresh crab salad with freshly picked crab meat from the shell. Our third and final appetizer was stir fried bok choy. As a full blooded Hong Kong Chinese man, I put the sauce of the bok choy on my white rice because it was a sauce my grandmother would make. My husband’s entree was the grilled skirt steak with micro greens and a spicy peanut sauce. His extract word was “incredible”. I had the crab khao soi. It was “the perfect curry in a bowl”. Period. Full stop. I was completely amazed with the flavor profiles. And finally to end the dinner, we got pandan cheese cake. If you haven’t, you must. The combination of silky smooth firm deliciousness will move you. In closing, my husband delivered a date night for books by choosing Krill. We had heard Krill was good but good does not even begin to describe the onslaught of delicious wonderment you will experience. Enjoy.

We were sat at the bar with no reservation immediately and had great service from the bartender. The Pork Buns and Crab Khao Soi was so good my friend ordered some to go for lunch tomorrow. The decor is very warm and comfortable, and you can see into the kitchen if you're sitting at the bar. I'll definitely be back. To avoid the crowd, I suggest you come on a weekday before 7pm.

This was our first time at Krill and it was fantastic. Every person we interacted with from the time we walked in the door was attentive and super kind. The menu is full of delicious items and we had a hard time deciding because everything sounded amazing. We shared crab salad, Peking duck lumpia, pork buns, and 2 different noodle dishes. Every single dish was on point, from presentation to taste. We had 2 cocktails that were also perfect.

Where do I even start? Everything was incredible. The atmosphere was beautiful. The music was so fun. The service was outstanding! I want to try one of everything on the menu. I'll be recommending this restaurant to everyone who will listen.

This place is a VIBE. it was very busy but we were sat quickly with a reservation. We participated in the triangle restaurant week menu. Overall the food was really good, however the glass noodles were SPICY. I think they should have said something ahead of time when this was ordered. Our server was friendly but it was clear she had a lot of tables and was quite busy. I think we would come back again but make sure to have a reservation and not try to walk in.

Kind of underwhelmed to be honest. Everything was edible,but didn't put a spark on my taste buds. Mussels were extremely over cooked and gummy, chewy, and non-existent. Duck wings had a great sauce, but over charred. The rolls were delicious, the ribs were fair. The buns, have had way better at other places. For all the hype, would not go out of my way to come here, especially with the price point. Seeing other reviews and other's pictures...maybe tonight was an off night for the kitchen? Expectations were high...results...low

I loved everything about it! The vibe is incredible. It’s beautifully decorated inside and the patio is adorable! I can’t wait until they get heaters on the patio, so we can enjoy that this winter! Service was super friendly! Each person we encountered was kind and helpful! The drinks were killer!! Such a large drink menu with tons of wicked flavors and combos! The food was incredible! I’m not super picky, but I tend to stay in my comfort zone and tonight my comfort zone went for a ride! It was so delicious and there were absolutely no regrets! We will 100% be coming back!

Fun and beautiful restaurant. Bartender was super friendly and welcoming. Food was delicious and came out fast but portion sizes where conservative. There is designated parking behind a gate or street parking. I highly recommend making a reservation. I would not bring a group of 6 or more here during regular business hours. The restaurant is very intimate and cosy. There is outdoor seating. I would visit again.
