Went here recently with a friend for a pre-Christmas treat and it didn't disappoint Really lovely restaurant, fantastic food and great service. We were explained the dishes when we asked for more information and nothing was too much trouble. Well worth a visit.

I thoroughly enjoyed the food at The King and Thai and can see why it's in the Good Food Guide. It was exciting browsing the menu and great to share a variety of dishes. The apparently inexperienced waiters and waitresses did need a bit of supervision... there were plenty of people about but not all 100% attentive. Didn't spoil a... More

My husband and myself have been to the King and Thai a number of times and have always had fabulous food; this was not the case yesterday evening. Our starters arrived only a couple of minutes after the prawn crackers, not giving us the opportunity to eat them first. The starters were ordered from the specials menu and were far... More

It's a really great little place. Friendly and welcoming. The food was swanky Thai. The wife who is a big Thai fan loved it and even bought the chefs book, she was that impressed.

We had heard many things about this restaurant so visited with high expectations. It is very nicely decorated inside. The food was of an acceptable but overpriced in our opinion for what it was. For example our green curry was £16.95 but was certainly wasn't outstanding. The staff are very young and whilst polite were not attentive enough, they stood... More

We have visited the King and Thai on many occasions. The food is freshly cooked to a very high standard. I would say it's a little pricey but worth every penny. The service is excellent and the Restaurant is clean and well presented. We will certainly visit The King and Thai again.

This has got to be the best Thai restaurant around, the owner is the cook and has published her own recipe book which you can purchase from the restaurant. The food is outstanding, typical price for two people is around £90 so maybe for that special occasion. Well worth a visit.

We love the King and Thai, it's on our doorstep and we've returned many times. Not quite sure what happened on our last visit, the menu seems to have been scaled down quite considerably and the prices increased, the sharing starter is now £22.50 per couple and whilst I have no issue paying for quality it just seemed to be...
