A kuri (庫裏 lit. warehouse behind?) or kuin (庫院 lit. warehouse hall?) is the kitchen of a Zen monastery, typically located behind the butsuden (or, Buddha Hall). Historically the kuri was a kitchen which prepared meals only for the abbot and his guests, though in modern Japan it now functions as the kitchen and administrative office for the entire monastery.
