Jamjuree offers well-presented Thai food that is flavorful and fresh without being too salty. Compared with other local Thai, the dishes here have a nice meat-to-vegetables ratio. My favorites at Jamjuree are just about everything; I've yet to try something I didn't like. I've even been surprised by the fried rice, which is a dish I usually don't order elsewhere and is hard for me to really like after having my mom's. If I could change the menu, though, I'd add fresh rolls; the only spring rolls they offer are the fried kind.
Unlike some of Seattle's many Thai restaurants, Jamjuree has a nice ambience. Nothing over-the-top, just enough sophistication to ensure its above-average position. There is a separate room that is frequently used to house larger parties, and there is a slightly elevated gazebo-like area that for whatever reason makes me feel special when I get to sit there. Almost all of the times I've been here, the restaurant has been pretty quiet noise-wise--even when it's fairly full. This may be a byproduct of the restaurant's subtlety; despite being on 15th the restaurant's subdued decor and signage mean some have a hard time remembering where it is (next to the Hopvine). Street parking is your only option on this busy thoroughfare, so you may end up parked on one of the residential side streets.
I recently had a party at Jamjuree, and the staff was so helpful. They remembered my specific requests (asking only that I call to confirm the day before), kept my cakes for me (and managed to switch things around when I forgot to mention these were ice cream cakes), lit the candles and provided plates and utensils--all without an extra service fee. The waitstaff were friendly and worked hard to meet the needs of 20+ people and a baby. Needless to say, I left more enamored with Jamjuree than ever.
