A comprehensive menu which makes choosing difficult, the set meals are a good option to go for. The food is superb and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommended

We have wanted to visit this place for a long time, finally we got to and it didn't disappoint.

We booked on the day and were pleased we got a table, arrived on time and were ushered to a corner table. The waitress took our drinks order (it did take a while for this order to be taken) and then someone came and took our food order. We were then given some prawn crackers which were delicious before our starter came out.

The chicken satay and the spring rolls were delicious. The only thing i would say is we sat with our empty plates in front of us for quite sometime before they were cleared. BUT once they were the main course came out instantly.

I ordered the noodle dish (no 41) and asked for it mild and it was very hot - avoid that one if you don't do spicy! It was lovely though. My husband had a chicken dish with lovely rice. For pudding we had the deep fried banana which was delicious and the mango sorbet.

We will definitely return. The food was delicious, it was very reasonably priced (about £5 a starter, £10 a main, £5 a dessert). We spent £72 for 2 of us having 3 courses and 2 bottles of wine.

The only complaint i would have is the drinks order too a while to be taken and the starters took a while to be cleared. But it was nice that we didn't feel waiters hanging over us waiting for us to go.

Next time i would order from the buffet menu which is £20 a head for 3 courses.

Thank JoLuJa

Gorgeous food, portions not massive but surprisingly filling, I had Pad Thai which was on par with what I've had in Thailand before, delicious. Probably more expensive in the evening than other Thai restaurants, but all meat is organic and locally sourced, so worth it for that in my opinion. Service friendly, would go again.

From delicious Thai sour soup, fabulously cooked tempura prawns and wonderful Thai curries, the cuisine cannot be faulted. Alongside, an excellent wine selection and very friendly and personal service from the proprietor, I would always select the KING and THAI as my first choice for eating out in Dorchester.
