Kin-D Lao & Thai Food held a soft opening Jan. 25 at 6750 Gaylord Parkway, Frisco. Kin-D phonetically translates to “eat good”; the family of first-generation Lao Americans started this restaurant to sell quality, traditional dishes to fans of Southeast Asian cuisine, according to its website.

Set to expand its offerings this summer, Kin-D’s ownership said the restaurant offers popular Lao and Thai dishes, such as vegetable and pork rolls, curries, pineapple fried rice and desserts. Kin-D’s ownership said “everyone loves” the restaurant’s pad thai. 469-200-5362.
