Extremely Disappointing this time 6/3/2011

We had eaten here many times and enjoyed it but this time was absolutely horrible. This is the first time I left almost my whole dinner uneaten. I have gotten thai hot many places including here. They put so much ""hot"" in it that we almost choked. It killed all of my tastebuds. I love garlic and ordered the spicey noodles because it had garlic in it but there was no taste of garlic or any pleasant tastes at all. I at first thought they brought me the wrong dish because I did not recognize the noodles. These noodles were like flat dumplings not noodles. They were awful. They were clumpy and very wide. Overall experience was really undesirable. The waiter thought it was funny. We didn't. We will be laughing all the way to other thai restaurants because we will not go back there. more

awful 2/20/2011

Maybe people in Saint Louis don't understand how good Thai food can be, or actually asian food in general, but this is another in a series of bad asian restaurants that I have experienced during my 6 month stay here. I've gotten cary-out twice, I wanted to give them a second chance. They failed. This time the chicken pad thai had chicken gristle (I hope that's what it was) in it and the curry had little rivers of grease, or some kind of oil running through it. I left it in the refrigerator and the next day it was this congealed hunk of cooking grease. Great. Not. more

Not the best Thai I have had... but probably considered good in STL 1/29/2009

I have had delicious Thai food in my life... and this place is ok... not nearly as flavourful as Thai should be but the chicken satay was pretty yummy. The salad rolls were rather bland... and the seafood dish came in tin foil and was odd. The Thom Yum soup was too hot at medium and I usually love hot food. The shrimp in the soup was not bad for mid west. I would go again for the satay chicken and because I love different cuisine... but after reading above review from Seatlle person, I will definitely try the Thai Buree place. Pros: Chicken Satay Cons: Salad rolls needed something more than iceberg lettuce and shrimp more

Good Thai at a good price 3/24/2008

The King and I is your typical Thai dining experience. The menu has a nice selection of Thai and a couple of Chinese dishes. The food is always fresh and well-prepared with one exception-the wait. You usually have no problem getting in and being seated but the issue comes with the wait staff. When my finance and I go there during the weekdays and it always seems like they are understaffed. If there is hardly anyone there, we are usually served pretty quickly. However, if the place starts filling up, it could be a while before you see a server; I've had to ask for someone to take our order a couple of times. On the upside of that, the servers are always pleasant and attentive. Once you order and your food does arrive, it never disappoints; I recommend the Spicy Fried Rice. You are able to select from mild, medium, and spicy. The mild is hardly noticed, the medium has quite a kick, and you'd have to be nuts (IMO) to order the spicy because it's explosive! Pros: Good Prices and Good Selection Cons: Slow/inattentive service more

Exceptional Thai 7/13/2007

The curry is not as ""Thai"" as you would think it should be. Pros: Good location right no Grand Cons: This place needs a little updating. more

Just 'Okay' Food 5/31/2007

I went to this place. The food was just 'okay'. I went there for lunch and ordered Spring Rolls, a spicy Veg. Dish and Thai Tea. Spring rolls and the Tea were quite bad. The Veg dish was just okay. more

If you're looking for good Thai food, don't eat here. 1/1/2007

I am shocked that this has been rated the best Thai resaturant in St. Louis. Granted, there aren't that many good Thai restaurants in St. Louis, however, there are still other Thai restaurants that put this one to shame. I have eaten here a couple of times. I thought my first dining experience must have been a fluke, as everyone gives rave reviews. However, I will never return as the food is terrible. I ordered a cashew nut chicken which was just dry strips of thigh meat, no sauce, no flavor. Being from Seattle, I am used to great thai food. If you are looking for a good thai dining experience, try Thai Buree instead. Pros: The atmosphere Cons: The food more

excellent 10/17/2006

oh the best Thai food in St. Louis. Love it! You can take kids there very easily and you do not need reservations. more

Yummy 9/18/2006

I heard about this place, but never tried it until now. The chicken satay and papaya salad were delicious! I had the Pad Ped vegetables for my main course, which was excellent. The service was great, as well as the value for your money. They have cute dining areas for large groups, where you sit on pillows! Pros: Food, atmosphere, value Cons: N/A more

One of the best Thai spots. 6/13/2005

King and I is the best thai food I've found in St. Louis. The food is so great we find ourselves calling and ordering take out more often than I ever would have thought. The food is fantastic, the portions are large enough for lunch the next day, and for take out they've got it all ready in 10-15 minutes. Everytime I've ordered for take out it's been there waiting when we get there. Eating in is good too. I'd reccomend reservations. Everyone we've taken here from out of town has raved. more

Wow...Now that's Hot! 1/17/2003

I ordered 3 Kings of Thiland and added the phrase ""make it hot"" - it's a good thing that I love spicy food! What a dish... I would recommend this restaurant to everyone I know. Great cuisine! Pros: Food, Traditional seating, great for groups more

Decent food, horrible service 11/27/2002

Not a 10 at all. The fish cakes were small and dry, green curry was very good, and the pad thai was decent but a bit too sweet. And the service was terrible -- slothful, inattentive, indifferent.... Next time, you'll find me back at Pho Grand. more

Great Thai 7/21/2002

Excellent food; best place to go with a large group of people. Dishes are easy to share so everyone can try several entrees and appetizers. more

Carryout experience 6/26/2002

Having moved from Chicago, with a ton of good Thai restaurants, was really looking forward to getting good Thai food here. What a disappointment. The chicken Pad See Ew was bland, didn't have much chicken and the brocolli seemed soggy. Overpriced for what I got. more
