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

This was a fine choice for dinner with friends. We like Thai food. The choice is vast. The decor is nice and clean and spacious. We four had two Thai salad, big enough to share. We had four other main dishes. Just a bit too much portion but that is not a criticism, just an advisory for smaller appetites. All... More

Easily the best Thai food in the Rochester area! In five years of eating at this restaurant, we haven't had even one bad experience. Every dish is expertly prepared. Don't be afraid to ask questions about the menu as the staff is happy to adjust items to suit taste preferences. And the owners are wonderful - very welcoming and friendly.

My husband and I dropped by the King & I last Saturday for lunch. Over the years we have eaten many meals there. The food is fresh and tasty. I ordered Vege Tofu Pat Thai and my husband ordered Shrimp Basil Yellow noodle. The lunches are very reasonably priced. Each lunch entrée (about 1/2 the side of a dinner entrée)... More

The menu is extensive and it explains the different ingredients and spiciness of the dishes for the adventurous and the allergic. They will provide brown rice for a fee and steamed... More

This is one of the most popular restaurants in Rochester and quite rightly too. The food is stupendous and you can see that given that finding a table is a minor battle. However, the service can be shoddy - have had chairs pulled while someone on the table went to the restroom. Once had a server fight because he was... More

We hit the King and I a lot for weekday lunches with the gang. They're always patient with us as the group straggles in, and are super fast for whatever size party we have - sometimes we're upwards of 15, and we never have issues getting in and out in an hour. I always choose something different, and it always... More

A bit difficult to find for the uninitiated but worth the effort; very busy on week-end evenings - reservations not necessary but a good idea; service is fast; staff friendly and knowledgeable; food is consistently excellent and generous; parties of as many as 10 people are often seen; atmosphere is functional but it works.
