I was introduced to The King and I by an ex-girlfriend, the relationship is over, but I gained a new favorite restaurant.
I have ordered out, and dined in and have always had pleasant staff, good food and no funny business with the bill. The red curry dishes tend to be among the best offered.
Many cities have better cuisine in general but Rochester has a gem for Thai food with the King and I.
I have never had Thai anywhere so I cannot comment on the quality. I was immediately put off by our waitress's demeanor. It seemed as if we were a bother right from the start. I however cannot stomach rice, it makes me very ill. I asked if they would make any substitutions for the rice on any dish (including the more expesive dishes on their menu) I felt interested in and the waitress said no exceptions.

They have this amazing chicken soup served at lunch time. We always order it, no matter when we go in. We're working on sampling our way down the entire menu. Anytime we have guests in from out of town, we always make sure to go there for dinner. At lunch time, it can be very crowded- but you can still be in and out in thirty minutes if you don't take too long to order. I would definitely recommend this place to anyo... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
was in for dinner with a colleague few weeks back. the waiter taking our order was first of all very very rude. he happened to take away our soup bowls even before we had finished eating them. after we had finished our meal, he brought us the check, but had the audacity to remind us to pay him a tip (this is what he exactly said - don't forget to include the tip with your bill). As I have mentioned before, the food w... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
This is the second time I was overcharged. I ordered $40 in take-out, put zero for tip, and copied the total on the credit card slip. My bank statement showed $49 - illegal outright thievery. \r
I always tip well if a waiter or waitress is involved, but never when I pick it up at the counter. \r
All 3 entrees were ""1 pepper hot"". The curry was was very mild, the spicy shrimp and lemon chicken were too hot... view more
The excellent and authentic Thai dishes were accompanied by a calm and pleasing dining environment. The waitstaff was attentive but not overbearing. Water glasses were never empty, and the room was devoid of cooking noises. The menu descriptions of Thai dish names was extremely helpful and accurate. The menu options had something for everyone including traditional drinks and desserts, accompanying meat, poultry, seaf... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
This is a terrific restaurant: classy decor, great food, reasonable prices. My one complaint is that they really rush you during their prime hours. I brought five friends for an early dinner and 30 minutes later (no kidding), they had the check on the table. Great place for dinner if you are headed for the theater, though.Like this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
