Came here with friends the night before surgery at MGH. I wanted something spicy that would fill me up but not weigh me down. King & I was perfect! Excellent menu of Thai specialities, served with friendly efficiency. I'll definitely go back for more!

Came while visiting a family member at Mass General Hospital, and had heard the Thai food was good here. The crab Rangoon's are exceptional, the pad Thai is very good, in the boneless spareribs were just OK. Prices are reasonable, and the reason we gave...More

When I was a Beacon Hiller and lived on the hill, I took this place for granted. I’d always go once a week and get takeout because the crappy decor didn’t do justice to the absolutely amazing Thai food being cooked up in the kitchen....More

Went for my first visit, for lunch. I love pad Thai and wanted to keep it simple so that's what I ordered. It was strangely sour in a bad way. The few shrimp were tasty but slightly undercooked. Nothing green in the Pad Thai, basically...More

I made a special return trip after a great first experience; but the return was disappointing. I tried the Thai rolls with dough that smelled and tasted as though fried in oil that was used too long. The boneless spare rib appetizer was merely sliced...More

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
