This place was recommended to us by the lady at the front desk of our hotel. We happen to love Thai food, but just asked for a recommendation for any place to eat. She actually suggested Thai, and being avid lovers of Thai food we happily took her advice. It was right across the street from our hotel (John Jeffries... More

We stumbled on this small Thai restaurant while walking Beacon Hill; it happened to be lunchtime and the place looked interesting. No pretensions here, just straightforward authentic dishes sensitively balanced and totally fresh. Very pleasant service too.

My wife and I came here based on the reviews on tripadvisor and based on the tripadvisor sticker they have on their window. Service was great but the food did not taste right. It somehow lacked flavor and for the flavor it had....it was the wrong flavor. And that goes for both orders me and my wife had. If it... More

This small Thai restaurant on Charles St in Boston hosts a nice menu (with several new dishes for me). Service was quick and attentive (no nonsense, but in a friendly kind of way.) Prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious, nicely spiced and hot.

One of my favorite Thai place in Boston is King and I. I have been there many times. The place has good amount of tables and great menu and quality. Besides their red curry/Pad thai, other favorites include Chicken Kra Pow, and soups.

Had the pad thai with sauvignon blanc...tasty enough but had a stomach ache the rest of the evening. Was the most reasonable restaurant that i could find in the area since the concierge's recommendations were all too pricey (maybe for a reason)!

We were wandering looking for a restaurant and decided to stop in here. It's never going to be the most memorable meal of your life but it was tasty and dished up quickly. I'd return here if in Boston again.

We were on the Boston hop-on hop-off bus and got off at stop number 14. Wandering around we came upon on this gem. I had the mango curry with chicken, very flavorful. My husband have the pad Thai. He said it was very good a little bland. The service was great and the atmosphere is lovely

King & I is down the street from the Liberty Hotel I was staying at. It was a nice short walk down Charles St. When I visited, the restaurant was cozy and service friendly. Food was good and flavorful.

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
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 path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
