We were down on the Post Rd in Fairfield friday night and decided to stop in one of our favorite Thai restaunts, The King and I. Normally we go to the location on the Bridgeport/Stratford line.It was 6:30pm and there were all of 3 or 4 tables taken, we were taken aback a bit. We ordered the chicken,lemongrass and coconut milk soup and the fried calamari salad. The soup was very good but had big pieces of lemon grass that were very hard to chew...we just picked them all out. Shouldn't the lemongrass have been taken out of the soup before being served? It's just too fibrous to eat. The fried calamari salad was so small, we had gotten this in the past and remember it being at least twice the size. I ordered GOONG IN MANGO CURRY but changed the shrimp to chicken,this portion also came out much smaller than normal. This is my favorite dish and I get it often but this time it occured to me that the chicken should be a few dollars less than the shrimp but when I saw the bill it wasn't. I didn't saw anything. The dish was very good as usual. My partner had a whole fried snapper that he thought had good flavor but was dry.The restaurant never got really busy.
