For two decades, The King & I has ruled Milwaukee's Thai food scene and, once again, readers picked it as their favorite.

The owners of The King & I, Bob and Marie Phoungphol, immigrated to the United States from Thailand in the '70s, and they worked in numerous Thai restaurants before opening their own. Many of the recipes on The King & I's menu come from the owners' mothers.
