Ordered take out for dinner at the Manchester location. Steamed dumplings and Basil Fried Rice. Place is small and minimalistic but everyone there was raving about food while I was waiting on my order. I wasn't disappointed dumplings and rice were great and portions were big.

We were in town looking for a Thai restaurant and this place showed up and we tried it. What a great surprise! The cook is from Laos and is a fantastic cook! We love Northeastern Thai cuisine (we lived in Thailand for many years so know the food) and this lady absolutely had it down. The place was nearly full... More

It has been a few years since I last came to King and I. While years ago, it was under different management, I feel it still remains a solid choice for Thai food in the Greater Hartford area. The food was absolutely delicious. I had yellow curry with chicken and assorted mixed vegetables. It was served in a large green... More

We loved this homey restaurant atmosphere. A little cape cod house nestled into Park Street the West Hartford line. This BYOB restaurant is consistently excellent and on a recent visit to Manchester we were treated to more of the same great food and service!

If there is a finer, friendlier, warmer Thai restaurant in Hartford than King and I, I'd like to know. The service is always great, accompanied by beautiful smiles. The food is amazing and, especially, consistent. And all their publicity is word of mouth: that is how we found out about this gem. Many times we will do "take-out", and the... More

Sorry I haven't been to the Hartford location but I have heard great things about it. However I have been to the new Manchester location and it is definitely my favorite Thai Restaurant in the Manchester/ Bolton area. I try to go at least once a week. The staff is so friendly. If you're in the Manchester area and you... More

Probably deserves 3.5 stars. I live in NYC and Thai food is one of my favorite cuisines. My standards are a little tougher, but this passes the test and certainly for Hartford it passes the test. We happened to be in Hartford and craving Thai food on a Friday evening. No wait, no reservations necessary. Most tables were occupied, but... More

OMG. Great food and awesome service. They aim to please. The atmosphere is quaint and clean. You know we eat Thai food in lots of cities (Asia too) and I will say this was among the top places I've been.

We ate visiting from out of town. This little place was a gift from heaven! The service was great & ghe server was humorous! The fresh thai rolls were filled with veggies. I had the tom kar soup & it was probably the best i have ever had. The Papaya salad was spiced perfectly-- not too sour & not too... More
