Kyusha Ramen

I have been dying for Kitchen 86 + Bar to reopen and just hope they can get back during this difficult time. The ramen (which we had with added Boom Boom Shrimp is one of the best dishes we have ever tasted! Craving it for months!

Every time I go to the restuarant I always get an order of boom boom shrimp. Sometimes for an appetizer and sometimes for my main dish! They're seasoned and cooked to perfection and the sauce is AHHmazing!

Kitchen 86 is our new favorite place, we go multiple times a week. The food is always good, recipes awesome and we feel the food is high quality. I wish there were more places like this. Service is always excellent as well.

Lucci's Meatballs

Came to kitchen 86 for meatballs and boom-boom shrimp, after hearing such great things about the restaurant. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food and beverages are delicious. Try the Mexican Bee Sting cocktail - it is a real crowd pleaser!

Scampi Borracho

Amazing dish and presentation. Scampi was soft and very tasty. The vegetable sauce and rice completed the dish perfectly i couldn't not stop eating. The boom boom shrimp as appetizer were great as well crispy but not oily at all like in most places. Definitely one of our spots in the desert now! Will be back to keep tasting the rest of the menu. P.S. Cheesecake was the bomb! Not to sweet and very tasty.

Boom-Boom Shrimp

Amazing! Chose to eat here based on yelp reviews and we were not disappointed! Happy hour options were great! My kids had cheese pizza-delicious! I had the kale Caesar salad and boom boom shrimp-both fantastic! My husband had the happy hour burger-I had to try it because it looked amazing-it was! Finished dinner with tiramisu-great flavor and not too sweet! We live in Virginia so won't be able to come back soon but I'm telling family in So Cal to check you out!

Boom-Boom Shrimp

My first visit to Kitchen 86 was a delicious adventure. The Boom Boom Shrimp are like nothing I've experienced in the Desert. The flavors burst in your mouth and every bite leaves you wanting more. I went back the next evening with a different group of friends and had the Kale Caesar Salad. Delicious! My husband and his buddy don't like Kale, but after tasting Kitchen 86's Caesar they're converts. Keep preparing delicious meals, you make an evening out to dinner so Delicious.. Love the food!❤️

Boom-Boom Shrimp

I'm pretty sure this is the best shrimp I've ever had. I literally cannot go to Kitchen 86 without ordering it. You will not be disappointed. It's delicate w/ a slight crisp and a little kick.

Boom-Boom Shrimp

I vaguely remembered a friend recommending Kitchen 86 months and months ago but now I'm kicking myself for not going when he told me to go! Because once I sat down and saw the plates of food others were eating, my mouth started to water. The service was incredible: quick and efficient. My glass never stayed empty and the server always had a smile on his face. Once the food arrived (I got the Boom Boom Tacos) I was floored by how flavorful they were! SO DAMN GOOD. My only regret was not coming to this place earlier. So mad at myself. Mannn listen, it was so good I went twice in the same week. I'll be going again that's for sure. This is now my new go-to spot in the entire desert.

Dos Tacos

Look, I am a big Boom Boom Shrimp guy, the appetizer, as tacos, in the Ramen, etc. But I tried the shredded carnitas at someone's suggestion, and they were fantastic.

Scampi Borracho

My honey and I traveled to Coachella Valley every year since 2013 for two weeks to escape the long Maine winter. We finally moved to LA and are excited that our escape is just two hours away. As much as we love the weather here we have never loved the food. I would say it's safe to say that our meal at kitchen-86 tonight, although very simple, was the best we've had in all our years coming here. We are both gluten free, not by choice, and there is a dedicated gluten menu, which makes things easier on the server and us. There were 3 gluten free entree choices, we chose to share the shrimp scampi, over rice instead of the pasta. We also each had an appetizer of pork tacos. Both the tacos and the scampi were fantastic. Both were very flavorful, the tomatoes and spices with the scampi tasted fresh and healthy, in a good way. The tacos were fantastic, with just tender corn tortillas, the pulled pork and a green spicy salsa. Yum!! The service was great, the food came out in a timely manner and the server was attentive, as were support staff. I will definitely go back one more time before we leave in 3 days. I'm thinking about those tacos even now, just hours after eating them! And it's nice to know that when we plan our next desert escape we know of a great place to eat!

Chicali Ceviche

It was our first visit to the New Ketchen 86 and bar. We had a great happy hour there with the very friendly and knowledgable bar staff. Our drinks were right on the mark and we had quick service. The happy hour menu is not large but we certainly enjoyed the items we tried. The Flatbread with Ricotta cheese and blackberry syrup were very good and interesting. The Calamari was lightly breaded and tasty. We will be back to a place that we found to be fun and energized with a younger thinking crowd.

Kitchen-86 Burger

The beef was amazingly cook and the taste was out of this world. Been here twice and both times the burger was devine and i am a very picky eater I hardly like to try something new but i will be coming back to try another dish. If a burger taste so good i can only imagine the taste of the other dishes they offer.

Boom-Boom Shrimp

The boom boom shrimp, among the best dishes I've had the pleasure of tasting and there was no better way to end the night than with home made Tirrimisu. I must say when you try this dessert, there is no going back.
