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.

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!

I LOVE Thai food and I came here for dinner one night. I ordered a curry and thought it was so so. My friend got the pad thai and it was weirdly too sweet. The food was good, don't get me wrong, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to come here again.

Went with a friend on a Saturday late lunch. There were still a couple of table for lunch at 3 pm, and there were customers coming in constantly. I had the KANOM JEEP (Combination of crabmeat, shrimp, chicken, and water chestnuts wrapped in wonton skin then steamed and served with fried garlic and sweet soy sauce), this was yummy and... More
