I had heard about The King and I so went for a first hand experience. Our waiter was extremely attentive-personalized each dish to the customer's requests. Good size portions, tasty food seasoned specifically for each diner. Reasonably priced and immaculate.

We ate dinner here over the Christmas break, and all enjoyed the good Thai food. They are very reliable...not overly ambitious about trying new things, but still very good food. I had the Panang Shrimp, which is one of my favorites, and an order of fresh shrimp spring rolls for an appetizer. This place is family run and always good.... More

Had the lunch special, good size portions, took some home. Service was very attentive. Soup was tasty. Spring rolls very good. Wife had phat Thai chicken, which was good, not great. I had the beef phat prigkhin that was somewhat spicy and tons of ginger. Probably wouldn't order again

King & I was once a delicious, authentic Thai restaurant. Not any more. Went for lunch with a friend. We ordered two lunch specials and shared. First came the soup of the day. I have the feeling the 'soup of the day' is the same soup every day and it was awful. Basically, it was watered down canned chicken consume... More

We have been going to the King & I for many years. The food had been consistently very good. Tonight we went back for dinner. It appears that the restaurant may be under new management. I ordered pad thai. I was shocked at the meal I received. Despite the fact that the noodles were good, there was very little seasoning... More

Lunch combination ends at 2:30, we were there 5 min. before it ends. I had pa tai rice noodles and steam rice. My husband had green curry with port and steam rice. We were so stuffed with only one dish. The size of dish is more than enough, normally we order some side dishes, but not this time when we... More

My family and I have been coming here for years! We moved away almost 17 years ago but still make it a point to stop and eat here when we are driving through. The food is, and always has been, very good. The service on our last visit was a little slower than usual but typically we are served within... More
