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

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
