    Default King & I Restaurant

    Hey guys, I want to take my g/f to a really nice restaurant, $$$ is no object; some old classmates of mine reccomended the King & I Restaurant downtown; said it's really good Thai cuisine.
    Anyone have any experience there?
    Or any other good suggestions as to where to go?
    I considered Stage West as well, but I bought her a day at the spa, so we'd be too late for dinner there.
    Thanks guys!!!

    If you want to impress her with your bling take her to Teatros beside the Hyatt.

    I was there....at least I think that was the place. It's pretty dimly lit so if she's beat, you wont notice too much. I think that's the place where jackie chan and owne wilson went when they filimed shanghai noon isn't it? I think they have pics on there wall there. The food was pretty good though. Nice atmosphere. And damn you guys with your shameless advertisements!! hahahaha

    Hey Ryan, I think you will be very satisfied with the service and Quality at King & I...As mentioned above, The Owls Nest is very nice too! Either of those you cannot go wrong.

    Actually, I'm just doing it b/c she's been SUPER stressed the past couple weeks, and I feel she needs a day to relax and be pampered.

    Try the sultans tent, or even open sesame. Great atmosphere.

    Open Sesame is a nice place. Don't care to much for the food, not really into it. But it has a really nice atmosphere. When I went, I got a little private room overlooking the restaurant. It was nice
    I know you don't smoke weed. I know this. But I'm gonna git you high today. 'cause it's Friday, you ain't got no job, and you ain't got shit to do!

    Fuck, I hate the Caille on the Bow!!!


    In all of the restaurants I have been to I have NEVER EVER received the same kind of treatment I've received there before. The bitch had the audacity to give me the hand (talk to the hand, not to the face) when I asked for change. The service was shit.. ate three tasteless shrimps (for $18) and also a bunch of other things.. none of which were impressive. Then the $75 bill came. We only had $20 bills and wanted to leave $90 - even though the waitress was a bitch. So I tried to break one of the $20s and the waitress said "pshhhh", gave me the hand, and walked off.
    I was so pissed off, I took back the $20 (so we left $80) then grabbed my ex bf by the hand and stormed out of there... so fast (the whole stomping and shit) I have never been so disrespected in my life!!!

    The King and I is 'westernized' Thai food... the spicy isn't spicy. My favorite Thai dish isn't even on there (flaming game hen!!!). It's okay there tho...

    As for good restaurants, try La Chaumiere (Chateau Briand mmMMmm), Latin Corner, Mamas on 16th, Sopranos... OooOO.. so many good places. Umm.. Belvedere is a nice place to chill.. Rococos is beautiful (if it's still open)... MmmMM all this talk of food is making me hungry!
