Always a Good Meal

Never had a bad meal, and we've eaten at The Kind and I many times. Service is usually fast. Decorated nicely. My husband and I and adult children always... read more

Consistently great food! Pad Thai is wonderful. Evil Jungle Prince is fantastic. Kids love Beef and Broccoli. Lunches are also delicious! The atmosphere isn't anything special, but the food is. Fun for big groups or families. Very often it is busy, but rarely is there a long wait.

This is not only the best place in Rochester for Thai food but it is also the best I have had anywhere. I have had the chance to eat here a few times and always order something new. I can never remember what I order but I have always enjoyed my meal. Every time I go it is something new... More

Second time I have been here, and I will make it a point to dine here each and every time I come to Rochester! Their chicken phat thai is amazing, and my colleague and I literally received our food FIVE minutes after ordering it! Fresh, spiced perfectly, and pleasant service - what more could you ask for? Happy to HIGHLY... More

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.
