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

Generous portions, yes, pricey, yes, I think for the quality. Fast, yes. The ingredients vary, but but we got 6 items and 4 of them tasted quite similar and most were bland. The spicy shrimp was. But everything else seemed ordinary. Parking is easy and service is fast, and if you want something different but aren't very familiar with Thai,... More

Went with colleagues for lunch. Excellent food but slightly pricey and it's busy so you may have to wait during rush hour

Our business partners took us here for Thai food and we really enjoyed it. Speedy service and fresh ingredients and flavors. I had Red Curry and it was delicious as were the spring rolls.

Straight to the point, the food is good and it is an affordable place to done! The papaya salad was so yummy. I would say 90% authenticity if I compares it with the one I had in Thailand. Their Tom Yum wasn't spicy and not sour enough but I am happy with the taste and the portion. I would definitely... More

Among my top 3 favorite places to eat in Rochester. Service is always prompt, attentive, professional. Food is consistently delicious, fresh, and served hot. The location looks plain from the outside, but trust me, the experience is anything but. The dining room is tastefully furnished with ample booth seating and tables with chairs that can accommodate table for 2 or... More

Came to eat here based on other Trip Advisor reviews - and was very disappointed. I ordered red curry with chicken. The meat was dry and the sauce had NO flavor. My husband had spicy shrimp which was better, but overall the meal was substandard. Waiter was not too friendly either. Would not go back here.

The King & I always puts out a quality product in rapid fashion. It isn't gourmet, but it is very tasty, and the service is prompt with the orders. They will also customer-prepare your dishes, as I always ask for them to add some "extra heat" to my meals, and they always comply. As I said, it probably isn't the... More
