We hit this place at about midnight and it was very busy. You ordered and they had the food out very fast. We tried the Pai Thai and crab fried rice both had great flavor and good prices.

The food was good, portions were good, service was quick, place was packed (a sign of good food). Authentic thai food. The wait staff were pretty good looking too. We had the duck fried rice, spring rolls, and noodles. Yummy.

I love Thai food and King of Thai did not disappoint. It's a quick, easy feed of Thai food without the trimmings, and it's obvious they aim to get people in and out as quickly as possible. It's loud, bright and busy, so don't expect to have any deep conversations. Just enjoy it for what it is - good Thai... More

We wanted a quick Thai dinner before a comedy show across downtown so King of Thai worked just fine. It's a bit crowded and noisy but the service was quick and the food was very tasty. Great value too.

The service was friendly and the Pad Thai was excellent-they give you peanuts at the table! Outstanding.

Food is delicious and authentic but a lot of MSG used. Would rate the food as 6 half upon 10. Prices is also on the high side. Regular Noodles and soup with tips per person is approx usd$20. Not much service from the service staff. I think most of the Thai restaurants around this area is abt the same standards.

Providing that I've had better, I thought the food here was okay. I would say it was more americanized than some other places I've been to. The soup didn't have a lot of flavor. My pad thai wasn't bad but it didn't have the "wow" factor either. We shared 4 different dishes between my friends and I and again, none... More

My aunt was looking for Asian food after doing the hop on hop off tour. We look over the menu first which was posted outside of the restaurant. We liked it and we tried it. We were not disappointed. My brother ordered a noodle soup. Taste good better than the Vietnamese Pho. Me and my aunt ordered 2 different dish... More
