What's good at King of Thai Noodles?

A new branch of King of Thai Noodles is opening up around the corner from me in Alameda (Grand Opening sign was up this morning -- may be open by now). Any recommendations on what the good dishes are at the other branches? Things to avoid? According to the sign they're going to be open until 1 a.m., so put that on your list as well for places that are open late.

Haven't been to the new place but was sorry that Arajuao's went out. Will look forward to answers from others. Now if we could get a place for bahn mi sandwiches!
Have to agree with #17 and the papaya salad! Total yummers. Also okay was fried chicken with fried rice. Those three are the only things we there.
I have also tried the soup noodles (okay), wonton soup (very meaty wontons), and yellow curry with chicken (which was way too sweet for curry). I'm not a big fan of their soup base so I stopped ordering their soup noodles after the two times I got it.
I once went to the one on 5th St in SF and ordered Papaya Salad. It was probably one of the best versions I'd had in a while, plenty spicy from the Thai chilies and nicely balanced dressing. I did ask them to make it Thai spicy though.
Chicken Larb. Som Tum. Rad Nar (with vegetables and tofu). Sticky Mango Rice and Coconut Ice Cream for dessert.
