Excellent Thai food

From the outside it doesn't look like much but that can be deceiving. The interior is nice and the service is very good. The menu has just a few main dishes but each dish has about 10-12 varieties. I was trying to choose between seafood and duck. I went with the duck which has 3 mild and 9... read more

I decided to try something different this time. I got their Thai Spicy soup. The bowl was more than half full of vegetables with a generous portion of meat. Lots of noodles. To my taste, not very spicy, but I know many people who would fell it was just right. They consistently prepare excellent food the she short time between... More

I have consistently gone to TKAI for the last 13 years. The food is great each and every time, and I have never waited more than 15 minutes for my food, whether dining in or taking out. The staff there is SO kind. It can be a bit off-putting when you see the crowd they draw on a daily basis,... More

Very nice Thai restaurant! Went twice there. Quick service and nice waiters. The food quality is OK and the dressing is not excessive! I'll come back before I leave.

We have been here nearly every visit to Rochester. The food , no matter what you get, is consistently great. Service is fast and attentive. We have vegans in the family and they love this place. BTW, us meat eaters do as well. It is large enough to accommodate large parties. Like Thai? Go!

We stopped through on a drive to Niagara Falls. Easy access off of the I-90 thruway (7 minutes) and ample parking. Service was fast and friendly. Ordered four dishes and three were outstanding. The pad Thai, green curry Shrimp and lar nar(wide noodles with vegetables) were our favorites. The clay pot fish was too fishy tasting for our liking. Had... More

I like their pad thai, most of the other stuff that I have tried is a little too spicy for me. Not sure why pad thai comes with rice. They use nicely cleaned chicken and fresh veggies.

Really great food. We always go in a big group with family friends. We've been going there since it was a tiny little restaurant nearby. Just went there for my sisters graduation. As good as ever. Keep it up. Always consistently good.

There is a reason why they keep getting voted best Thai in Rochester - you need to check this place out! I have family who will travel from Syracuse to Rochester to eat here! Pleasant staff and the more you come here the more they get to know you and your name! ❤️👍

The King & I does offer very good Thai food. We've come here for a long time for the food and the family-style dining. The atmosphere in this restaurant is OK, although not fancy. But we enjoy it, and the food does come out very quickly in case you are on the hungry side. It also comes out as spicy... More
