The King & Thai is a charming restaurant, tucked away down a quiet Dorchester road. Inside diners will find a stylish interior and service that is second to none.

Everything is freshly prepared by the chef using locally sourced and free-range ingredients. On our visit, I began with satay gai – chicken breast marinated in herbs and cooked on skewers until wonderfully tender. Not only was it delicious, it was also well presented, accompanied by expertly crafted flowers carved from vegetables. For the main course I selected a sweet and sour dish named pad priew waan, which again was both beautiful to behold and a treat for the palate. My guest – a big fan of Thai cuisine – plumped for the classic Thai green curry, and was thoroughly impressed. Last but certainly not least I sampled the kluay tod for dessert. Comprising deep-fried banana topped with syrup and paired with homemade ice cream, it was an absolute dream and sated my sweet-tooth. Homemade mango sorbet was my companion’s choice, and he declared it a wonderfully refreshing end to a flavoursome meal. Afterwards, we were left to wind down and enjoy the relaxed ambience and tranquil background music.

All in all, The King & Thai offers authentic Thai flavours and excellent hospitality. It’s no wonder this restaurant has such a dedicated following.
