On a "snow emergency" day, we tramped through the snow to get back to our hotel, working up an appetite. Being strangers in town with a frozen phone, we weren't sure where to go to eat. We came across Thai Tanic and decided to give it a try. The server was friendly and tried out some Japanese on... read more

We had take-out after sight-seeing one day. We shared the chicken satay (just okay - not very "peanutty"), the papaya salad, which was extremely spicy (my husband likes heat and it was almost too spicy for him) and red curry (also just okay). It was fine and reasonably priced, but definitely not the best Thai that I have had.

Stayed around the corner at the Doubletree Hotel. This is a great spot on 14th. Went for lunch--a group of three of us. We were quickly seated and our drink orders were taken. They have quite a varied menu--plenty of great meat, seafood, poultry and vegetarian dishes. There was a bit of a wait for our food, but we were... More

Great service. I had tofu pad thai and it was one of the best dishes I have had in a long time! I love this restaurant!

I used to go to this restaurant because it served the best Thai food on 14th Street. But this time, my experience was a total disappointment. Kanoom Jeep's sauce tasted too sweet. Our main courses, Panang Tofu and Panang Chicken, were disgusting. The sauce was watered and flavorless. After we ordered, it didn't take more than five minutes before our... More

The portions and prices were perfect. Ordered tom yum shrimp and drunken noodles. Nice and spicy - both, but waaayyy to salty. Service was awesome. Watch if you're gluten or corn free. Ask lots of questions. Probably won't return.

During the winter and cold nights, asked to be seated away from the door. It can get chilly. The staff is friendly and food comes out of the kitchen fairly quick, I had the yellow curry with chicken which was delicious. Also make sure you get the Crispy banana with Coconut ice for dessert. I loved it.

Enjoyed from the minute we walked in. Asked to be seated away from the chilly door, and they took us to the back of the restaurant - perfect. Service was friendly, efficient and professional. Food was tasty, hot and appeared quickly. When I went to the bar to look at what selections they had, a server at the bar immediately... More

I only went for take out and didn't dine in, but the soft shell crab pad thai was absolutely delicious! I enjoy spicy food very much so I asked them to make it spicy and it was perfect!
