We enjoyed several entrees that we shared. The food seemed fresh and was prepared very well. We chose #2 spice level which was nice because it had plenty of spice without overpowering the food. We love the volcano chicken here and that is always one of our favorites. We also really liked the vegetable curry and the pork pad Thai... More

Stopped in the 'King and I' for lunch this week, and was pleasantly surprised. The lunch menu is fantastic and you get so much for your money. The beef soup to start was surprisingly delicious and perfect to warm us up from the cold. The main meal was pad Thai with delicious egg fried rice and a spring roll. I... More

This restaurant is one of the best for Thai food. I enjoyed the chicken curry (believe it was #31 on the menu), ordered with 1 star (*) coward as this dish is rather hot. The serving size was generous, however, the rice was more on the sticky side than fluffy, but once the curry mixture was added, it was fine.... More

This place is good place to have good thai food. Generally there is a good wait time @ this place if you are planning a weekend trip. The food is really good and quantity is decent. Food is well prepared and presentation is also nice. Its only once I had a bad experience when the staff got the same order... More

Excellent volcano chicken!!! My mother in law said the salmon could use work though! But if you like spicy Crispy volcano chicken this place has it down!

Had a couple nice lunches while staying at the Hyatt across the street for business conference. Unfortunately one of my dishes must have gotten mixed up with another customers because my food at one of the lunches was good but tame, despite having ordered it spicey. Would have liked to see the look on the diner's face who got my... More

Years ago this was a really good restaurant, not so much now. I won't be going back. The food was bland, service slow and no follow up by the server.

Our trip brought us back to Milwaukee for a second time, wife wanted Thai or Indian. I picked this one due it's closeness to our hotel and some decent reviews. Our driver informed us that this was the oldest Thai Restaurant in Milwaukee. I wasn't expecting much in ambiance or food, thinking newer was better. I was proved very wrong,... More

I stopped by for dinner during a work trip and got a vegetable summer roll and tofu Pad See Ew. Both were incredibly delicious - the Pad See Ew was one of the best I have had. The staff was also incredibly helpful and friendly in helping me pick out a dish and customizing the spiciness to my liking. When... More

The food is good solid Thai, and lots of varied choices. The service, on the other hand.. Let's just say when you aren't sure if you should tip, not because the service was "bad", but because it didn't even happen. Having to walk up to the bar to get a glass of wine should never happen, but it did!
