The King and I is always great tasting!!! We eat Veggie when we go and are always very satisfied. This last time we went, we tried a soup. It was ginger with coconut milk - it looks like warm milk, but the flavor is out of this world!!!! Give it a try. The only reason why I've not given them... More

First rate. This is the best Thai in Rochester. Tried others, but always return to the King and I.. Service is super and friendly. Usually go here at least twice a month. We really like the crispy yellow noodles. This is the only restaurant we've found this dish

We came for dinner with a group of 9 people, a mix of adults and children. A wide variety of menu items was ordered, including my Evil Jungle Prince Squid (spicy, but not too spicy for me), my wife's Phat See Eeu noodle dish, and my son's seafood clay pot. The three children (9 - 13 years old) ordered adult... More

I am in Rochester with some colleagues, who began to search options for dinner on the first night. The King & I came up, and was rated as a "top pick" in the area, so we tried it. We really enjoyed the meal! The menu was varied, had lots of "hints and definitions", and the food was really good! Would... More

My husband and I took my mother to the King & I. We have been going there for many years. The restaurant is in a small old building in Henrietta. However the husband and wife who own it are generally always there. They take great pride in their business and rightly so. I ordered my very favorite pat thai chicken,... More

I eat here nearly every time I travel to Rochester because I love Thai food and nearly every item on the menu is naturally gluten free, and those that are not, they will prepare with gluten free soy sauce. The staff are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. There are lots of interesting and tasty dishes to choose from.

BAD first impression. People have talked about this place for years. Went for lunch this week and boy, don't come for the friendly service! I know Asian restaurants in general are not known for their friendly service but I hate patronizing a place, giving them my business only to feel like I'm inconveniencing them by showing up. Server was an... More

Five of us went for dinner on a Saturday night and the place was busy. Food quality was variable. The soup was delicious. Most of our dishes were good, but not the best Thai we've had. We did not care for the pad thai. Its sauce was quite different from that of all the other pad thais we've had elsewhere.... More

My husband and I try Thai food if we're in a new place...ithe food at the King and I was a little different than what we are used to but still very good! We had Chicken Coconut Soup and Pad Thai pork. Servings were generous and food tasty! The people working there were very nice and helpful!

The menu is wide and varied and will appeal to most pallets. The food is always piping hot and fresh. The service is efficient and the staff is friendly. I frequent at this restaurant particularly at lunch time with colleagues because you can get a great meal, priced right and fast! The good news though is they never rush you!
