Some of the best Asian food in Rochester. Their tofu is divine (not something we can say about the tofu at many places!) so it is a vegetarian heaven. It has a very large vegetarian menu. The spicy vegetable, vegetable cashew and Evil Jungle Prince are among my favorites. Their lunch menu is especially good, and comes with their delicious... More

This is just about the best restaurants in every aspect. Great prompt service. A host of variety in Thai food dishes - from ordinary to highly spiced. The service was very rapid and courteous. The helpings were much too much for what we ordered. And the quality was exceptional. Whoever gets the opportunity really must dine out in this well,... More

Lunchtime on a Tuesday can be dicey believe it or not. Not only are suicides more prevalent on Tuesday than any other day of the week, but they nonchalantly try to squeeze themselves between the alleged worst day of the week and some ambiguous milestone called Wednesday. However, the folks at the King & I are obviously so feverishly trying... More

Had dinner here from recommendations of locals - everyone in Rochester knows this place. Food was hot, fresh and tasty. Big portions. Friendly service! Will definitely come back.

We had a fairly good meal here one evening. It was good but not spectacular. Seeing another writer's comments about the staff being mostly Chinese who staff it would explain why it was good but not really Thai since the employees are not themselves Thai.

The food here isn't bad for what it is, and the portion was large. But it's NOT authentic. Staff seems to be all Chinese, from conversations I could hear, and half the art on the wall is, too. As far as the food, Pad Thai varies widely from region to region in Thailand, but no cook would put ginger and... More

We went for dinner with our daughter and son-in-law who live in Rochester and eat there frequently, and it was delicious. I had the pad thai, which they kindly made to order without fish sauce, hot and yummy and with tons of good-sized shrimp. More than I could eat. My daughter had the sesame tofu, also good. My husband had... More

I travel a lot including NYC. King & I is my favorite. Very consistent food, great service, and no waiting. While there are better in NYC, very hard to beat King and I outside of NYC

The food was well prepared and was authentic Thai. The service was very good, although a bit too fast to allow us to fully enjoy each course. The strip mall restaurant ambiance detracted from the overall dining experience. I would return to this restaurant.

On a whim, my husband and I went for lunch on a recent Sunday and were wowed. Visting for the first time, we were swooning with every bite of the crispy vegetable spring rolls. I love spring rolls, and order them whenever I see them on any menu. I can easily say these are by far the BEST I have... More
