King & I Thai - Closed

1346 Lasalle Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55403 | Minneapolis (Downtown) | 612-332-6928

Location Description:

Ever had a pina colada in a Thai young coconut? How about a cucumber martini infused with fresh Thai basil? If those don't sound like the standard beverages in your neighborhood Thai joint, that's because the King & I is the neighborhood Thai joint for the hipsters and power brokers of downtown Minneapolis and Loring Park. Other points of difference include the physical size--it's a spreading complex full of statuary and Thai artwork, ever-ready to host big events--a DJ in the lounge after 10:00 p.m., a pretty outdoor patio in the summer, valet parking, and, most of all, a menu and service staff equally at home dealing with either Thai newbies or connoisseurs.
