King and I Thai has been in business for over 30 years and has changed ownership (and locations) twice, and they ended up in Mendota Heights in 2015 with the newest owners, Zeng and Cha, taking over in 2017. It is located in Mendota Plaza, and it is a light and airy restaurant with a casual and relaxed atmosphere and a friendly staff. The menu is filled with crowd-pleasers, ranging from Raad Na to Gaeng Puk, Peanut Sauce with Spinach to Tom Kha Soup. For dessert, try the classic Mango Sticky Rice; it's a great way to end your dinner. They do not use MSG in their foods, and they have takeout.
