Large portions and always excellent. Good for dinning in or take out. Great local Thai place and very authentic.

I have always had great food at The King and I every time I have eaten there! So many good choices on the menu.

The place is large and has plenty of staff. The menu has lots of choices and the prices are average. The lunch specials were about $9.95 each, including soup and white rice. The food was average and not fresh. All four of us did not feel well afterwards. I would not recommend it because of this.

I had heard about The King and I so went for a first hand experience. Our waiter was extremely attentive-personalized each dish to the customer's requests. Good size portions, tasty food seasoned specifically for each diner. Reasonably priced and immaculate.

We ate dinner here over the Christmas break, and all enjoyed the good Thai food. They are very reliable...not overly ambitious about trying new things, but still very good food. I had the Panang Shrimp, which is one of my favorites, and an order of fresh shrimp spring rolls for an appetizer. This place is family run and always good.... More

Had the lunch special, good size portions, took some home. Service was very attentive. Soup was tasty. Spring rolls very good. Wife had phat Thai chicken, which was good, not great. I had the beef phat prigkhin that was somewhat spicy and tons of ginger. Probably wouldn't order again

King & I was once a delicious, authentic Thai restaurant. Not any more. Went for lunch with a friend. We ordered two lunch specials and shared. First came the soup of the day. I have the feeling the 'soup of the day' is the same soup every day and it was awful. Basically, it was watered down canned chicken consume... More

We have been going to the King & I for many years. The food had been consistently very good. Tonight we went back for dinner. It appears that the restaurant may be under new management. I ordered pad thai. I was shocked at the meal I received. Despite the fact that the noodles were good, there was very little seasoning... More
