ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - A South City favorite is moving after close to 30 years.

King and I Thai Restaurant closed their St. Louis City doors in August. The owners have since announced they would reopen on Sept. 20 at 8039 Dale Ave. in Richmond Heights.

“My family and I are thrilled to finally announce the grand reopening date for King & I,” said Shayn Prapaisilp, Chief Operating Officer of Global Foods Group and representative for the ownership group of King & I. “We have been hard at work modernizing the King & I brand and are excited to share it with the community who has supported our family’s endeavors since opening this restaurant in 1983. We already feel the support from the Richmond Heights neighborhood and cannot wait to get back to serving customers again.”

The new 3,100-square-foot restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner service. The restaurant will be focused on carry-out and seating for around 50 guests inside.

The restaurant will be closed on Tuesdays. Lunch service will last from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Dinner service will run from 4:30 p.m. until 9 p.m.
