I have eaten at this restaurant many, many times in the past 20+ years. I have been disappointed after recent dinners and am hoping that this review may stimulate them to up their game. It is not bad, but there has been significant slippage in the quality of ingredients and authenticity (now bowing more to American tastes), and prices are... More

When they say spicy they mean it. Had ordered the red chicken curry along with chicken fried rice and fish cakes. Good food and service. Hard to find parking.

I've had several meals here and they've all been delicious and had great service. Their curry is all on point. My only tip is that they offer you mild, medium and spicy. They are not playing around with spicy and it should only be ordered by those truly looking for out of the ordinary heat levels. I fall in this... More

To be fair I was tired and eating alone so this might not be the same review I would give if rested with eating with a group of friends. The place lacked atmosphere and there were few people eating, but the food was good and reasonably priced. I had two starters instead of a main dish and they were tasty... More

We had not been to the King and I for a while, but glad we went back. Our waitress Jamie gave us some very good suggestions. We had the papaya salad- mild and it weas excellent. The Seafood Hot Pot was rich with seafood and the spice was very good. Topped it off with the fried banana and ice cream... More

A reasonably priced authentic Thai restaurant. The lunch menu offers several alternatives and the red curry chicken and the spicy noodles are both good meal options. A word of caution, medium spicy could mean quite spicy in Thai cuisine hence it would be advisable to ask for a mild version of the dish incase you are sensitive to spicy food.... More

Fantastic Thai food. Best in the country that I've had. The waitstaff is always top notch. Before 5pm the atmosphere is more like lunch in a cafe. After 5pm the dinner atmosphere is more cozy and 4 star dining. The one hostess cracks me up as she is not the typical employee at "The King and I" We think she... More

Got the panang curry for lunch. Just ok. Not very tasty. $8. Will try to find another Thai restaurant that's better.

The place is pretty nice inside, not fancy, but modern. Service was excellent, your drinks were always full and dirty dishes were removed promptly. The prices are a little on the pricier side, but not terrible, but expect to pay at least $50 for 2 if you get two entrée's, one beer, a soda, and crab Rangoon as an app.... More
