Quick bite lunch

Good filling station for around 10 bucks. Have been here for soup noodle dishes before which are excellent . Had fried chicken with cashews on this visit, a little sweet for my palate, and not really as spicy as was expecting. Will be back to try more, hoping for a little more Thai authenticity... read more

I love Thai food and have been to plenty of restaurants and this is definitely one of the better ones. The exterior of this place is very disparaged and shabby, but don't let this discourage you from trying this out because the food is amazing. I got the pad thai which was one of the best I've ever tasted. Definitely... More

My 2008 travels to Thailand ruined me. Nothing could ever be the same, nor even come close to satiating my desire for the exquisite flavors I had experienced there. That is.. until King of Thai. I was completely blown away by how authentic their food tastes. Yes, the restaurant is a bit cramped and noisy, and the service may be... More

Whenever I'm slightly tipsy, this is the place to go. The pad see ew is fantastic and so are all the different curries. Best late night asian place to eat at, and there's always leftovers. Don't skip dessert! The mango sticky rice is delish!

It doesn't matter how great the food is and how wonderful the service is when you have to wait and wait for the food to arrive. Isn't the point of eating out is to enjoy the food? The key is having it arrive to your table. That was the struggle with this popular place. Worse was that we both ordered... More
