We had a lovely evening and thought that the staff were fantastic: they were able to allow us to spend the whole evening at the table we’d booked. They also dealt with those who were refusing to give up their tables when asked nicely very professionally! The food was outstanding and all in all, we were very impressed with everything.

Once the volume of the speaker above us had been adjusted slightly lower, it was a really great experience. Staff were helpful and friendly and the food was amazing!!

Thai food always fabulous, options for draught lager a bit limited this time to Heineken or Stella but otherwise all good. Outside space works really well and had a great atmosphere

The Thai food was outstanding! Staff were great and so helpful, I asked to bring the slot forward an hour and they were more than happy to arrange this. We also asked to move seats so sit at the front (as we didn’t wanna hear the football) and this was fine also. All staff very warm and friendly. I used to come here loads when I lived in Leeds, I didn’t even realise I’d booked a place I’d been to in the past, always enjoyed my time there then too. We will definitely be coming back to this place for more delicious food and a friendly reception.

It would be good if the beer garden had a smokers and non-smokers area.

We, unfortunately, were sat next to chain-smokers and had someone with asthma on our table, so wasn't ideal. Asked if we could swap tables, but they never came back to us on it

They didn’t have one drink in stock out of the entire order and decided to decline my order and asked me to pay again, saying that the first payment will be refunded within the next three days. I still don’t understand why they couldn’t simply do my order and substitute a drink (asking me first). Just poor customer service, asking people to pay twice for their dinner.

Lovely staff. Sad they had no food Monday's hence the low score (we were starving).
The outside table was a bit rubbish for the football but not really their fault. Over all I'd come back when things are normal.

The Thai food at the Kings is amazing!!! We had the starter for two which was delicious. Really enjoyed my Pad Thai. I would definitely recommend, I for one will be eating here again. It felt Covid safe and there was plenty of staff on so the service was great.

We did not eat but other peoples food looked nice. I was really disappointed that we booked a table and were not able to change it to a table in the sun. I understand that bookings are set but I have been a matre d and it's very easy to accommodate customers and there were quite a few empty tables in the sun and we had to sit looking at them, whilst in our coats shivering. We left early and unlikely to return. Which is a shame as the people serving the tables were really friendly and great at their jobs.
