2 for 1 at The King and I

A wonderfully charming, family-run restaurant that brings home-cooked, traditional Thai food to the London borough of Beckenham, The King and I has been delighting locals and visitors to England’s capital city since the 1990s.

One of the best London restaurants for tantalising Thai flavours served in relaxed, unpretentious surroundings, The King and I makes for a fine spot from which to enjoy a meal with friends and family.

Anyone looking to eat out in London and partake in sumptuous Thai food that is as heart-warming as it is tasty need look no further than The King and I, which has been known to serve such traditional delights as the pad kaprow and the massamam curry alongside a wealth of lesser known delights. Such wonders are sure to attract both experts and novices to Thai cuisine, meeting many a taste and appetite requirement while catering to a number of palate strengths.

Any meal at The King and I is only to be enhanced for members of tastecard, with the dining club entitling them to some superb London restaurant discounts when they call in advance and produce their card upon arrival. This allows them the perfect opportunity to enrich any dining experience with that little bit extra, like a further beverage and an additional course, which can only add to the enjoyment for any visitor.

Found on Upper Elmers End Road on the outskirts of London, just a stone’s throw away from the idyllic South Norwood Country Park, The King and I makes for one of the best London restaurants for lovers of the Thai cuisine looking to escape the hustle and bustle and to get some respite amidst a day of exploration.

We also encourage members to drink 'paid for drinks' and not just tap water; as per the spirit of Tastecard. As such, this makes the partnership with the restaurant mutually beneficial for everyone.

Important Information

Please note: The tastecard restaurant discount is not available on bank holidays or celebration days – including, but not limited to, Valentine’s Day, Mothering Sunday, Father's Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. You must also book in advance and mention the tastecard to be entitled to the discount.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal for four, which was really tasty and a very good range to choose from. Rice was hard for 2 portions, but they quickly changed with no problem. Service was good and friendly, we had to wait a little too long on occasions as the restaurant was full and only one lady serving, but overall it was acceptable and understandable.

    Good value with a Tastecard. Lovely food. Recommend. "

    The food was lovely but they combined are rice portions which we think made it too small for x2 people. Also, it took a long time to pay given how quiet it was. That said, I'd definitely go back again and again because the food tastes great. "
