“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Dishes have a unique flavor and spices. Rustic atmosphere. Take out available.
Location is at the rear of the lot, will need to look carefully to find the building as it blends
into the background of the area.

“Looks like located in a crack house, but you get rewarded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

The place is a ground floor of a typical family house (a tired one). Since the kitchen is on the same floor, you do not get much space. There is only about 8 tables. It was a nice experience, the food was excellent, but I was not asked about the spiceness and got mild. I wish standard was hot...

“Bring your own wine and enjoy tasty Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

This is a very small and intimate restaurant. Reservations can only be made for large parties so you need to arrive early if you're only two or three people. The portions are generous and arrive quickly. There are always interesting specials. It's the perfect spot for a casual and very reasonably priced meal.

“Best Thai food I've ever had.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

I was actually eating at a Japanese resturant when I first heard about king and I. From our waiter! He described it as eating in someone's dining room in their home. After that I kept on hearing about this place.

It seems like the type of place Anthony Bourdain would go, and love. I mean if you're looking for atmosphere and trendy then don't go here. But if you just want authentic delicious Thai food, then This is the place.

BYOB is fun, the service is great, the staff is friendly, and the chef could be a reincarnation of Buddha!

Be sure to check out the tacky bathroom too!
