As a native angeleno and no stranger to thai food, having first tried it in 1976 at the age of 16 and later visiting Thailand, I find the King and I very mediocre. The first thing I do when visiting my home town is to hit one of my favorite thai places, Krua Thai. It's not that the food at the King is awful-even thai food done badly is usually pretty tasty-but if one has had exceptional thai food the King just won't do. Their stir fry dishes are decent, but the glory of the thai kitchen, the noodle dishes, are very disappointing to me.


I've been wanting to try this restaurant for the longest time, so I greatly appreciate this review! The picture of the pork skewers and sticky rice remind me of the first breakfast I ever ate in Thailand...after waking up incredibly jet-lagged in a tiny Bangkok hotel, and wanting a breakfast of nice, normal eggs and coffee, I was greeted by my hosts with small bags of sticky rice and pork. Something I didn't fully appreciate at the time, but a dish I grew to love over the summer I lived there.
