This is our go to Thai takeaway, much pricier than any Asian around but hands down the best. We rarely dine in and if we do it's in large groups as they have a great private function room. Last night was good but being served a curry puff that had been cooked from frozen or very cold was not great.... More

Was recommended this place by our Thai friend. Thursday night was fairly quiet in there so the service came quickly, starter and mains came out quickly, both were great and contrary to other reviews id read, were ample in size, i struggled to finish. I enjoyed the food far more than i did at the Guildford Hotel. Will go again.

Love the food and service here. Always brilliant. Great penang curry and pad thai. They deserve all the gold plate awards they have won.

This is the 4th time we have visited this restaurant but have not been back for some time. Since then I have visited a few Thai restaurants in Perth and think they are much better with there flavors and authenticity. However this is good for families and we still enjoyed ourselves.

We wanted to go somewhere for my birthday on a Tuesday night, which can be challenging in Perth. We decided on The King and I in Guildford, especially as we wanted to take a bottle of champagne and no corkage is an absolute bonus! We had previously been with a large group on a busy Saturday night, so were seated... More

King and I has maintained the same high standard over many years. Service polite and friendly. Food very good. Decor has a distinct rich Thai theme. The only problem as with so many asian restaurants is the menu never changes.

The interior of the King and I is very welcoming and has a really nice feel as soon as you walk in. They have obviously gone to a lot of trouble to create a very pleasant atmosphere and they have succeeded. It is a lovely old building and they have made the most of that, highlighting some of the old... More

A well presented Thai restaurant with authentic decor. Food was typical nice Thai food, with good size (not too large) servings sizes. Would go again if in the area.
