“Delicious beautiful food, fantastic host”
Reviewed 2 July 2011

We have now been to the King and Thai 2x since it first opened and will keep going. The food is not only beautifully presented but more importantly delicious. They are willing to adjust the heat of their curries, and never make it feel like any trouble. The atmosphere is good and relaxing, and the decor is fresh, clean and modern. Though not 'cheap' the price is more than fair when considering the quality of food. We liked the fact that all their produce is locally sourced and free-range as well.

Would highly reccommend to anyone!

“Excellent value Thai”
Reviewed 8 June 2011

We went for lunch and found the £10 3-course special excellent value. With such deals you expect the meals to be quite small, but we did wonder if we'd actually manage the desserts. The food was good and beautifully presented, with excellent service.
The place has only been open for a few months and has been very tastefully decorated, so that everything is fresh and new. Materials seem of good quality, so it should stand the test of time.
Service was good but I can't comment on atmosphere as there was only 1 other couple in the place - it seems that peole don't lubch in Dorchester.

“Superb food and service”
Reviewed 8 June 2011

Recently opened in Great Western Road, just up the road from the Junction pub and a little off the main High Street but well worth a visit. Delightful owner, superbly clean kitchen (just ask to see it and congratulate the chefs). Food is all freshly cooked and very tasty.
The green curry is especially good and the veg perfectly cooked.

The £10 3 course lunchtime set meal is quick and excellent value (we live in the town centre so take advantage) and the evening menu includes a choice of set meals as well as the usual fare.
Light and bright contemporary style restaurant but it's the food that counts
