King & I on Charles Street

  • m

Hi all,

I'm heading here for the first time tonight. Any menu suggestions???? I need them within the next couple of hours.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Had a surprisingly good meal there a few weeks ago, it was one of the hot seafood dishes, I think it had a red chili sauce on it...Shellfish and calamari, scallops and shrimp, with vegetables on a bed of greens, which the menu didn't mention...

    1. The Cashew Chicken. I usually get it with tofu. Tons of delicious vegetables!

      The Drunken Chicken is good, as well. Especially if you like spicy stuff.


      1. Thanks so much for your suggestions!!! Unfortunately, my friend canceled last minute so I will have to wait until next week to try this place out.

        1. Maura,
          I saw your post and had to respond, having had a very mediocre lunch recently at the King and I. We ordered the cashew chicken, and were shocked at the near absence of cashews in it -- we even checked with the waitress to make sure that our dish was the one that we ordered. Besides the cashew problem, it was also bland. We also ordered the pad thai, which has been touted pretty highly in various places -- it was definitely all bulk and no substance. On a previous visit, I had better luck, but for now I'm staying away from the King and I.
