We enjoyed great service, reasonably priced wine, and yummy hot and sour soup, a curry, a tofu noodle dish, and a salmon dish. We were seated quickly without a reservation and everything was fresh and hot.

Three for dinner on a Tuesday evening. They have lots of veggie choices and will substitute tofu for the meat or seafood in most dishes. Service quick and efficient. Waitress very pleasant without being obtrusive. They had some very nice wine choices -- a little...More

Came here with friends the night before surgery at MGH. I wanted something spicy that would fill me up but not weigh me down. King & I was perfect! Excellent menu of Thai specialities, served with friendly efficiency. I'll definitely go back for more!

Came while visiting a family member at Mass General Hospital, and had heard the Thai food was good here. The crab Rangoon's are exceptional, the pad Thai is very good, in the boneless spareribs were just OK. Prices are reasonable, and the reason we gave...More

When I was a Beacon Hiller and lived on the hill, I took this place for granted. I’d always go once a week and get takeout because the crappy decor didn’t do justice to the absolutely amazing Thai food being cooked up in the kitchen....More

Place was packed and staff friendly. Unfortunately the food was a major disappointment. The so called roasted boneless spareribs were tasteless chewy pieces of over cooked pork loin! My main dish of crispy duck was over cooked, tasteless and only tasted super spicy without anything...More

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
