Great Thai in unpretentious atmosphere.

We had dinner here on a Wednesday evening and were very happy with the find. The wine selection was okay and beer satisfactory...Thailand isn't exactly know for beer. Apps ordered were chicken satay and shrimp in a blanket. Excellent...the peanut sauce accompanying the satay was amazing... read more

Loved Thai Tanic! My boyfriend had the green curry, I had pad Thai with tofu, and we both had Thai iced tea. The food was super speedy and perfectly cooked. Probably one of the best Thai meals I've had. There was a Thai restaurant right upstairs and another one right across the street, so it's kind of a shame that... 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

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 us. I... More

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.
