Not bad/better if you love coconut

We both love Thai food. The food was served hot and timely. Our server was friendly and helpful. The taste of the food was okay, but not special. We had the beef and chicken satay as an appetizer. And two chicken selections. Nearly every dish had a coconut flavor involved, not my personal... read more

Staff were very friendly and the restaurant was nice. The food did come out quickly.. not sure if it was busy or not. The ingredients did taste fresh but they were weird combinations, i had asparagus in my thai chicken curry, I guess it was a Canadian twist, but the 5 of us that ate all had a lackluster dinner....

I hadn't been to the King and I since 1999 and boy was I missing out. Now that I'm 16 year older my palate has changed, " for the better". I can't believe how great the food is at King and I. The calamari ( breaded style) is one of the best I've ever eaten and the sauce that it... More

Went here with 7 people. We ordered food to share among us. The decor was clean and neat, and I felt comfortable in the atmosphere. We went here with folks that have been here in the past and enjoyed the food, etc. The service was great, the food was okay. I thought the Tom Yum Soup was good but my... More

I took my wife here for her birthday. We have been coming here about once a year since 1990. Every time we come here it reminds us of the great cuisine we experienced when we were in Thailand. The food was very nicely presented and the staff were amazing. They were very accommodating to my wife's gluten & dairy intolerances.... More

First visit back in 10 years. Service was fast and friendly but the food tasted like it had been cooked the night before and reheated for us. The coconut shrimp arrived in under 5 minutes and was too tough and dry to even get off the skewer. The rest of the food was lacklustre. We won't go back. Very disappointed.

The service was very good as mentioned by other reviewers. I was surprised by how quickly the food came. It had to have been prepared ahead and basically put on our plates. My pad Thai was OK but more like you'd get from a mall food court. I expected it to be better because this was a sit-down restaurant with... More

The food was okay, I thought it lacked in flavour and size and the amount you pay for the portion you receive is a little over the edge. However, the wait staff actually took into consideration that I had a peanut allergy and brought out a peanut-free pad thai!

The food was delicious. We had ordered incorrectly and our lovely server looked after us and brought us what we needed to make a memorable dinner.
