“One of the best restaurants in Dorchester!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

I have been to the King and Thai many times now for the £10 lunch special. 3 courses of fab food with a good choice of dishes. The food is freshly cooked to order. The ice cream is a must to try - absolutely amazing. The family who run this restaurant are so friendly and accomodating - really lovely people and go out of their way to make sure you are happy and enjoy the meal. It is a very clean and fresh looking restaurant and is always busy whenever we visit with a great atmosphere. Fantastic all round! Will be visiting many more times in the future!

“Really good Thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Authentic food good friendly service. Set menus offer a great way to discover Thai food for those not familiar with it. In our opinion this restaurant is as good as any found in London.

“Always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Have been on 3 occasions now. Always very polite and helpful staff, when once our whole party wanted to order Vegetarian meals. Food has always been excellent, fast, tasty, with a wide range of choices, suitable for all tastes, well explained in the menu, for those unfamiliar with Thai, classic Thai dishes and some great tasty ones to go along side it.

Will certainly go back again and again

“Fantastic as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

This was our third visit and every time it gets better. The gentleman who serves is always so friendly and welcoming, the decor is very calm and tasteful and most importantly the food is delicious. Don't miss the Tom yum gai soup, the pad Thai and the red curry is particularly fantastic. We will definitely return soon.
