"Kinaree is the name of a beautiful being, half-woman, half swan that dances through the mythical Himmapan forest. She has the head and torso of a woman yet below her delicately tapered waist, she has the body, tail and legs of a swan.

Kinaree has human arms as well as the wings of a swan.

Images of Kinaree are often seen in sculpture, traditional architectures, and temple murals.




The Kinaree Restaurant features traditional Thai cuisine at an affordable price. It is conveniently located at the corner of 8th St and Fitzgerald Ave in Courtenay (526A Cumberland Road).

It is a comfortable place for you and your family to dine in or to take out. We offer a great selection of beer and wine for your enjoyment as well as cocktails and coolers.
